Wheels Coming off Corbyn Bandwagon?

HAVING been backed down from 200/1 no-hoper with William Hill, to odds-on favourite at 10/11 to become Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn's odds have now gone into reverse, and Andy Burnham has regained favouritism.

'Punters have suddenly deserted Corbyn for Burnham, who has regained the favouritism he had held for most of the campaign until the Corbyn bandwagon began rolling' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

As Corbyn's odds have drifted from 10/11 (stake £11 for profit of £10) to 6/4 (stake £4 for profit of £6);

Burnham's have shortened from 2/1 (stake £1 for profit of £2) to 11/8 favourite (stake £8 for profit of £11).

WILLIAM HILL......Labour leadership odds: 11/8 Burnham; 6/4 Corbyn; 11/4 Cooper; 50/1 Kendall.
