Is Corbyn The New Duncan Smith?

William Hill believe Jeremy Corbyn is almost certain to become the next Labour leader - but also think he will then lose that role before the next General Election takes place.

'We think Mr Corbyn is likely to become the latest Iain Duncan Smith, who became Tory leader but did not stay in the position long enough to conest a General Election' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

'Another flurry of support for Mr Corbyn, including one of £2000 from a customer in Berkshire, has seen his odds cut from 2/7 to 1/5.'

NEXT LABOUR LEADER....1/5 Jeremy Corbyn; 11/2 Yvette Cooper; 8/1 Andy Burnham; 100/1 Liz Kendall

CORBYN TO WIN ON FIRST PREFERENCE VOTES? 4/6 YES; 11/10 NO

CORBYN TO LEAD LABOUR INTO GENERAL ELECTION? 2/7 NO; 5/2 YES (Bets void if Corbyn doesn't become Leader)
