Politics By Graham Sharpe

By George, Os Set To Be Next PM?

FOLLOWING HIS TORY CONFERENCE SPEECH, BOOKMAKERS WILLIAM Hill believe George Osborne is well on course to become the next Conservative Party leader (11/8 favourite); and to become the next Prime Minister in succession to David Cameron - also favourite, at 13/8.

And Hills make his Party Even money favourite to win the next General Election - once again with a clear overall majority; also quoting 11/8 that the next Election produces a Hung Parliament, and 9/2 that Labour bounce back with an overall majority.

'Mr Osborne clearly has his eyes on the biggest political prize in domestic politics, and has been consistently backed to become the next Tory leader, and the next Prime Minister in recent months' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
