Boris 8/1 ever to be PM

BOOKMAKERS WILLIAM HILL are offering odds of 8/1 that Boris Johnson will ever become Prime Minister.

'Boris attracted more money in the Tory leadership race than any other candidate, so there will be a huge number of disappointed political punters – although they probably also backed him to win the Referendum. We now make him an 8/1 chance ever to accede to the office he seems to have been craving' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

LATEST WILLIAM HILL ODDS FOR TORY PARTY LEADER: 8/15 MAY; 9/4 GOVE; 11/2 LEADSOM; 22/1 CRABB; 40/1 FOX
