Boris Favourite To Be Next Tory Leader

BOOKMAKERS William Hill have installed Boris Johnson as Even money favourite to become the next elected Conservative leader following David Cameron's resignation.

Hills have cut Johnson's odds from 11/4, and make Theresa May 7/2 second favourite, with Michael Gove 9/2, Andrea Leadson 12/1, Priti Patel and Stephen Crabb both 16/1; George Osborne, Philip Hammond and Sajid Javid all 20/1; Amber Rudd and Ruth Davidson both 25/1.

Hills make the Conservatives 11/10 to win an overall majority at the next General Election, with Hung Parliament at 11/8; a Labour majority 4/1.

JEREMY CORBYN is 6/4 ro lead Labour into the next General Election, 1/2 not to.

William Hill say that the EU Referendum was the biggest political betting event ever with some £20million gambled with Britain's fixed odds bookmakers. 'The result was profitable for our political punters' said Hill's spoeksman Graham Sharpe, '69% of all the moeny we took was for Remain, but 69% of all the individual bets were for Leave.'
