Burnham Hangs on to Labour Leader Favouritism

ANDY BURNHAM is marginally the best fancied contender in the Labour leadership race with William Hill, who quote him at odds of 11/10, just ahead of his closest rival, Liz Kendall, who is a 5/4 chance, while Yvette Cooper, who was favourite prior to the General Election, slips to 5/1 third favourite.

'Political punters cannot see beyond these three in the battle to succeed Ed Miliband' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
