At Least 16 Years Until Next Lab Majority Govt?

William Hill are betting on when there will next be a majority Labour government in power in the UK - and have made 2031 or later their 7/4 favourite.

Hills offer 9/2 that it will happen again in or before 2020; 9/4 between 2021-2025 inclusive; 11/4 to happen next between 2026-2030 inclusive.

'We don't believe that Mr Corbyn's appointment is going to make a Labour government more likely and as soon as he was voted in we lengthened the odds for them to win the next Election from 7/2 to 9/2, and made them 9/4 from 2/1 to be the largest single Party' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.'It could easily be another twenty years before Labour win an overall majority.'

JEREMY CORBYN is 6/4 to be Labour leader when the next General Election takes place - 1/2 not to be.

NEXT GENERAL ELECTION....Evens Tories to win overall majority; 11/8 Hung Parliament; 9/2 Lab overall majority.
