How Long Can Corbyn Survive As Labour Leader?
BOOKMAKERS William Hill believe Jeremy Corbyn is more likely to stand down as Labour leader during 2016 than any other year, and are quoting that year as their 2/1 favourite to be when he departs.
'Mr Corbyn's reign was always something of a surprise as he started out as a 150/1 outsider in the Labour leadership race, and since he took over he has seldom seemed in full control. The current Livingstone furore and the imminent elections could cause him even more problems and punters are betting that this is more likely than any other year ti be his last in office' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
However, Hills currently make David Cameron the more likely of the two major leaders to stand down first – and offer 4/5 that he departs before Corbyn and Even money that the Labour leader is out first.
