Bookmakers have given English Premier League champions Leicester City a 5000 to 1 chance of winning the upcoming Australian election.
“If elected our defence promises to stop the boats in the same way we’ve stopped Manchester United and Chelsea from scoring,” said manager Claudio Ranieri. “The only drawback will be that Barnaby Joyce will be left in charge every time we play an away game which may be a real problem if we have a good run in the Champions League.”
“We’ll counter Labor’s policy of winding back negative gearing with our own policy of winding back negative defensive play,” said striker Jamie Vardy. “We won’t be abolishing penalty rates but will seriously consider abolishing penalty shoot outs.”
ABC election analyst Anthony Green has framed opposition leader Bill Shorten at 6000 to 1 to win the election and 10000 to 1 to win next season’s Premier League.
