Will Junior Doc Row Cost Health Sec His Job?

As the Junior Doctor furore continues, bookmakers William Hill have opened a market on whether Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt will still be in his role on January 1, 2017.

William Hill believes he is odds-on to survive in the job and quote odds of 8/11 that he is still in post on Jan 1, 2017, and Even money that he will leave the position before that date.

'Mr Hunt has adopted a confrontational position over this issue and should public opinion swing against him he could be in danger of being moved' said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

*William Hill also offer 28/1 that Jeremy Hunt will be the next elected leader of the Conservative Party.
