Cameron 11/10 To Quit This Year

DESPITE  a gamble that the next government will be the same as the last one, with another Tory-Lib Dem coalition backed from 6/1 to 9/2 over the weekend, William Hill believe David Cameron will do well to see the year out as Tory leader - and when he goes, Boris Johnson is 9/4 favourite to step into his shoes with Theresa May 11/2 and George Osborne 8/1.

For Hills offer 11/10 that Cameron will cease to be leader during 2015; 9/1 that he'll go in 2016; 18/1 2017; 18/1 2018; 6/4 2020 and 25/1 2021 or later.

Already, Ed Miliband is 8/15 to occupy Number 10 on August 1, with David Cameron 11/8.

Hills are also betting on how quickly - or otherwise - the question of the make up of the next government will be publicly confirmed - and offer 2/1 not until June 1 or later; 5/2 between May 9-12; 7/2 May 13-16; 4/1 before May 9; 8/1 May 17-31.

OUTCOME OF GENERAL ELECTION: 13/8 Lab minority; 11/4 Cons minority; 9/2 Con-LD coalition; 7/1 Coalition involving SNP; 15/2 Conservative majority; 8/1 Lab-LD coalition; 25/1 Coalition involving DUP; 28/1 Coalition involving Ukip; 33/1 Conservative-Labour coalition; 50/1 Coalition involving Greens; 200/1 Ukip majority; 500/1 Lib Dem majority.
