Inflation Hits Osborne Odds

George Osborne has been inflated from 11/4 to 3/1 second favourite by William Hill to succeed David Cameron as Tory leader following his much criticised Budget Speech, while William Hill have shortened Boris Johnson from 9/4 to 2/1 favourite. 'Since the Budget speech there has been a noticeable lack of bets for Mr Osbrone to succeed David Cameron and his odds have suffered inflation' said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

George Osborne is 6/1 to cease to be Chancellor during 2016 with William Hill who offer 7/1 that will happen in 2017; 9/1 2018; 3/1 2019; 5/4 2020; 7/1 2021+
