Corbyn 3rd Favourite To Be Next PM

JEREMY CORBYN has been backed down to 8/1 third favourite to be the next elected Prime Minister with William Hill.

'Mr Corbyn was a 500/1 chance to be the next PM when he announced he was to run for Labour leader, but his odds have since shortened drastically - and now he has been cut again from 10/1 joint fourth favourite to clear 8/1 third favourite' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Corbyn, once 200/1, is red-hot 2/7 favourite to become the next Labour leader, with Andy Burnham at 7/2; Yvette Cooper 8/1; Liz Kendall 80/1.

Hills do, though, offer odds of 5/2 that if he wins Mr Corbyn WILL lead Labour into the next General Election, and make him a 2/7 chance NOT to do so.

WILLIAM HILL......NEXT ELECTED PM....5/2 George Osborne; 10/3 Boris Johnson; 8/1 Jeremy Corbyn; 10/1 Andy Burnham;Theresa May; 14/1 Sajid Javid; 16/1 Yvette Cooper.

NEXT LAB LEADER....2/7 Corbyn; 7/2 Burnham; 8/1 Cooper; 80/1 Kendall.
