In England it?s legal to bet on virtually anything, as long as you do it through a bookie. Now bookies have slashed the odds on the Prime Minister officially announcing that aliens are real.
The move comes after Scottish news photographer Mark Runnacles captured a possible UFO flying over Glasgow. Alexander McCallum also photographed a UFO that looks the same as the one snapped by Runnacles. ?When I saw the pictures,? he says, ?I was amazed because I photographed what appears to have been an identical flying saucer over Glasgow three weeks ago. I didn?t know I had got it until the film was developed later.?
Graham Sharpe, a bookie for the William Hill company, says, ?We have taken several bets at our usual odds of 100-1 and decided to halve the odds to 50-1 in case these pictures herald a UFO breakthrough.?
According to the newspaper The Daily Record, the Ministry of Defense will investigate the photos.
Bookies must also be aware of the intense dislike that Prime Minister Tony Blair harbors for George W. Bush, and might be betting that the Prime Minister is going to break ranks with the US and admit that UFOs are real.
