Malcolm Rifkind?s son bet against his father standing down

Toby Young Hugo Rifkind exchange

Talking of bets, Ladbrokes and William Hill have now joined in, opening books at 6/4 and 7/4 respectively that Rifkind Snr will not be a candidate for Kensington come May.

Hugo may be getting his dinner at Clarke?s ? but not for the reason he supposed.
