When Will Theresa Trigger?

IT IS NOW an odds-on chance that Article 50 will NOT be triggered by Theresa May's target date of the end of next March, with bookmakers William Hill now offering 11/10 that she will be able to achieve that, but 4/6 that she will not.

And Hills also suspect that the PM has little chance of being the first overseas leader to greet President Trump in a state visit, because although Hills offer 8/11 that The Donald will visit during 2017, Germany is Even money favourite to be his first destination, with the UK amongst the also-rans at 10/1.

Hills offer 1/2 that Brexit will become official during 2019; 9/4 not before 2020; 6/1 2018 or earlier.

Theresa May is 4/9 still to be PM on December 31, 2020, 13/8 not to be.

MARINE LE PEN is 11/8 favourite to win the French Presidential Election with William Hill, having replaced Alain Juppe, now a 6/4 chance, as the market leader. Hills also offer 3/1 Francois Fillon; 9/1 Nicolas Sarkozy; 11/1 Emmanuel Macron; 33/1 Manuel Valls; 40/1 Francois Hollande.
