Cor Blimey – Corbyn 5/2 From 200/1 – Conservatives Backed For Most Seats & Majority

Bookies William Hill have slashed the price of Jeremy Corbyn being named as the next Labour leader from an original 200/1 into 5/2. Jeremy was first offered at 200/1 on 4th June with five shrewd customers backing him at that price- including a £10 bet from Blackburn.

The turmoil in the Labour leadership has strengthened the Conservatives’ position and they have shortened from 4/11 to 4/9 to win the most seats at the next General Election – whilst it is 6/1 that we have two labour leadership elections before the next General Election.

“Jeremy Corbyn has shortened on a daily basis and he could become favourite in the next few days,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
