10:1 Tory Bets Since Manifesto Came Out… Can Corbyn Cling On?
The Labour manifesto has done nothing to convince punters that they are the party to back and in the 24 hours since it was released, betting on the Tories at William Hill has outstripped betting on Labour 10:1.
“Despite the relatively prohibitive price of 1/16, the Tories have been well backed in the last 24 hours and we have seen £10.12 placed on them winning the General Election for every £1 on Labour,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Although it looks as though Labour will have a shocker of an Election (the current betting suggests they could lose at least 68 seats) Corbyn has been well supported to continue in his role as party leader after 8th June, with 69% of all money taken on him remaining. He is 2/9 to be Labour leader at 23:00 on 9th June.
“Corbyn has made no secret of the fact that he intends to stay on and our punters overwhelmingly agree that he will,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
