Corbyn to go Before the Next Election?
JEREMY CORBYN is odds-against to lead Labour into the General Electiom, say bookmakers William Hill, who are quoting him as a 6/4 chance to do so.
'Although we are offering odds against Mr Corbyn still being Labour leader when the General Election takes place, it is noticeable that noone is knocking on our door to back him to do so' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe, 'Which is a big contrast to the huge gamble on him to become Leader in the first place....'
Hills think he will probably cease to be Leader in 2016, and make that year their 7/4 favourite; with 2020 a 3/1 chance; 2015 7/2; 2021 or later 11/2; 2018 7/1; 2017 8/1 and 2019 12/1.
MR CORBYN IS 4/6 with Hills not to kneel to the Queen when becoming a Privy Councillor, and 11/10 to do so; he is also 5/1 with Hills to appear at PMQs clean-shaven!
CORBYN TO LEAD LABOUR INTO GENERAL ELECTION? 1/2 NO; 6/4 YES
