When will Brexit finally mean Brexit?
WITH pressure building on Theresa May to announce a Brexit timetable, bookmakers William Hill are betting that the UK will officially depart the EU during 2019, making that year their Even money (50% chance) favourite for when it will finally happen.
'All the indications are that there will be no actual date put up by the PM, but on the basis that she'll want to to get the ball rolling as quickly as possible and that the process should take around two years, 2019 looks the obvious favourite.' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills offer 6/4 that the final split will not happen before 2020, while an early resolution, with a departure during 2018 or earlier, is rated the 7/2 outsider by Hills.
WITH THE TIMING OF BREXIT POSSIBLY CRUCIAL TO THERESA MAY'S FUTURE AS PRIME MINISTER, WILLIAM HILL OFFER ODDS OF 4/9 (69%) THAT SHE WILL STILL BE IN THE ROLE ON DECEMBER 31, 2020; AND 13/8 THAT SHE WILL NO LONGER BE PM BY THAT DATE.
