By George, will OS be next PM?

Bookmakers William Hill are betting on when George Osborne will stand down as Chancellor and make 2020 the most likely year at odds of 8/11.

Hills also offer 5/1  that he stands down in 2019 and 10/1 that he stands down next year.

Osborne is currently 6/4 favourite with Hills to be the next elected Tory Leader and 7/4 to be the next Prime Minister.

Hills make the Tories Even money to win an overall majority at the next General Election, with Labour 9/2 to do likewise, and a Hung Parliament is an 11/8 chance.
