Corbyn Labouring To Survive

LIKE A FOOTBALL manager coming in to a club with a great fanfare only for early results to be terrible, Jeremy Corbyn is going in to his first Labour Conference as Leader with criticism of his early efforts at leadership ringing around.

And bookmakers William Hill are already sure he is unlikely to remain leader long enough to lead the Party into the next General Election - and offer odds of 6/4 (bet £4 for profit of £6) that he will do so, while he is 1/2 (bet £2 for profit of £1) not to do so.

Hills are also betting on which year Mr Corbyn will cease to be Labour leader and make 2016 their 7/4 favourite and also offer: 4/1 2020; 9/2 2015; 11/2 2021 or later; 6/1 2017; 9/1 2018; 10/1 2019.

Corbyn is 6/1 third favourite to be the next PM with Hills, behind 13/8 favourite George Osborne and 4/1 second favourite Boris Johnson.
