Cameron tipping Boris?

WITH REPORTS suggesting David Cameron is tipping a 'Brexiteer' to succeed him over his own favoured George Osborne, bookmakers William Hill make Boris Johnson 7/4 favourite (36% chance)  to become the next elected leader of the Conservative Party – ahead of former favourite but now 4/1 (20% chance) second favourite, George Osborne.

'Regardless of who succeeds him, political punters seem to be anticipating that David Cameron will stand down after the EU Ref, whatever the outcome, either in triumph or despair, and he has been backed from 10/1 (9% chance) to 2/1 (33% chance) to cease to be Tory leader this year' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
