Boris' Passport To Number 10?

WITH BORIS JOHNSON reportedly renouncing his US citizenship by giving up his American passport, William Hill now offer 6/4 that Boris will become Prime Minister on or before December 31, 2020.

Hills also quote him as 9/4 favourite to be the next Conservative leader in succession to David Cameron, and 6/1 to be the NEXT Prime Minister.

'Boris's ambition has been the worst kept secret in British poltical history, but all the pointers suggest that should the opportunity arise for him to lead the Tories he will grab it with both hands and the 100/1 we once offered about him ever becoming Prime Minister is now long gone!' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
