Cor - Jeremy For Labour Leader?
JEREMY CORBYN, who was a 100/1 chance when he declared himself as a runner in the Labour Leadership race, has been backed down to 14/1 with William Hill. He is still the outsider of the field, as Hills make Andy Burnham 10/11 favourite, with Liz Kendall 11/4 and Yvette Cooper at 3/1 all ahead of him in the market.
'It is early days in the contest, with the odds sure to fluctuate during the course of the lengthy campaign' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.'Leadership campaigns have a habit of producing surprise results - John Major was a 25/1 shot at one stage when he won the Tory leadership, and Ed Miliband beat his better fancied brother David in the most recent Labour contest.'
NEXT LABOUR LEADER: 10/11 Burnham; 11/4 Kendall; 3/1 Cooper; 14/1 Corbyn.
WILLIAM HILL OFFER 11/4 THAT WHOEVER WINS THE LABOUR LEADERSHIP CONTEST WILL NOT LEAD THE PARTY INTO THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION.
**William Hill offer 2/1 that Labour will elect a male leader and deputy; 3/1 that they vote for a female leader and deputy.
