Corbyn & Nuttall To Go?
JEREMY CORBYN AND PAUL NUTTALL have both been made odds-on shots to leave their jobs as Party leaders of Labour and Ukip during THIS year, following the two by-election results.
Hills now offer 4/5 (55% chance) that Corbyn will cease to be Party leader during 2017 - with Nuttall 1/2 (66% chance) to suffer the same fate. Nuttall is now 4/6 favourite with Hills to be the next of the five major Party leaders to stand down, with Corbyn 7/4; May 9/1; Sturgeon 10/1, Farron 12/1.
'It is a moot point whether Corbyn or Nuttall fared worse as a result of the by-elections' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe, 'But the extended leadership of both must now be in cosiderable doubt.'
Hills have lengthened their odds for Labour to win an overall majority at the next General Election from 6/1 to 7/1, with the Tories shortened from 8/11 to 8/13, while a Hung Parliament is quoted at 7/4.
WHEN WILL CORBYN STAND DOWN? 4/5 2017; 3/1 2018; 8/1 2019; 7/2 2020; 14/1 2021 OR LATER
