Smith And Corbyn In Two Horse Labour Race

Owen Smith is a 5/4 shot to win the Labour ballot for leadership of the Party, despite the fact that he has not officially announced his candidacy yet. He is second favourite behind Jeremy Corbyn who is 8/11. Angela Eagle has seemingly no chance at 9/1.


“Owen Smith is expected to announce his candidacy in the next couple of days and the odds suggest that he has a legitimate chance of claiming the Labour leadership,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


With Theresa May and Nicola Sturgeon meeting to discuss the future of the union, William Hill are just 1/3 that there is a Scottish Independence Referendum before the end of 2024.
