Corbyn Supporters Not Browned Off
DESPITE GORDON BROWN intervening in the race to become Labour leader with a speech indicating that Jeremy Corbyn might not get HIS vote, William Hill now have Corbyn at his shortest-ever odds of 2/7 (stake £7 for profit of £2) favourite, with Andy Burnham trailing behind at 4/1, Yvette Cooper 7/1 third favourite and Liz Kendall a 66/1 outsider.
'Mr Corbyn, who started off as a 200/1 chance is a potential five-figure loser for us' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe, 'So we have every sympathy with the 'anyone but Corbyn' campaigners!'
Hills believe that should Corbyn win he may find it difficult to remain as leader until the General Election, and offer odds of 2/7 that he will NOT lead the Party into the next GE, and 5/2 that he WILL do so.
Mr Corbyn is Evens with Hills to attract Under 48% of First Preference votes; 8/11 48% or over.
