Finish your drink if he says "we're completely stuffed and I'm about to flee to Belize"

Not that anyone has any money left to bet with, but UK spread-bet shop Sporting Index is making markets on the length and contents of tonight’s UK budget speech. Selected highlights, via FT Alphaville:

_How long?

The number of minutes the Chancellor’s Budget speech will last 55

Sips of Water

The number of times the Chancellor will take a sip of water during the speech 1_

Hot tip: Buy this at 1 and spike the Chancellor’s dinner with jalapenos.

_‘Million’

The number of times the word ‘million’ is used during the speech 37

‘Billion’

The number of times the word ‘billion’ is used during the speech 44_

Up from 30 “billion” last year.

Surely that’s a sell?
