Bookmaker Paddy Power is offering odds on who will be editor of the Independent come 1 May
with the takeover by former KGB agent Alexander Lebedev imminent. Roger Alton remains the favourite to remain in the saddle and Rod Liddle is still in the running. Piers Morgan is an 80/1 outsider and Boris Johnson is rated at 250/1.
