Corbyn 5/2 To Lead Labour Into General Election

JEREMY CORBYN has been backed from 4/1 to 5/2 with William Hill to lead Labour into the next General Election should he be voted in as Leader.

But Hills still think he is unlikely to do so and quote him at 2/7 NOT to be leader at the General Election even if he wins the current vote.

Mr Corbyn is 1/3 to be voted Leader with Hills who make Andy Burnham 4/1 second favourite, and have cut Yvette Cooper from 13/2 to 11/2 third favourite, while Liz Kendall is now a 100/1 outsider.

'Despite being red hot favourite to become Leader we suspect that there will be plenty of opposition to him staying on to take the Party into the General Election campaign in 2020, or whenever it is held' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. Hills make Mr Corbyn a 10/1 chance to become the next Prime Minister.

NEXT LABOUR LEADER...1/3 Corbyn; 4/1 Burnham; 11/2 Cooper; 100/1 Kendall CORBYN TO LEAD LABOUR INTO GENERAL ELECTION.......2/7 no; 5/2 yes. (Bets void should he fail to be elected Leader)
