Corbyn Fav To Be Lab Leader - 14/1 Next PM !

BOOKMAKERS William Hill have promoted Jeremy Corbyn from 6/4 second favourite to 11/8 clear favourite to be the next Labour leader, and relegated previous 11/8 favourite Andy Burnham to 6/4 second favourite, following more support for the man who started the campaign as a 200/1 no-hoper.

'We took just five bets for Mr Corbyn to be Labour leader when he first announced his candidacy, but since then the momentum has been with him in an unprecedented political gamble, and the odds offered against him have collapsed all the way down to clear favouritism.' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

And Mr Corbyn is now quoted at 14/1 fifth favourite by Hills to be the next Prime Minister.
