Corbyn To Sink Or Swim?

LABOUR are 5/4 with William Hill to lose both of the February by-elections, in Copeland and Stoke on Trent Central, and 4/1 to win both.

William Hill have cut their odds about Jeremy Corbyn ceasing to be Labour leader during 2017 from 2/1 to Evens and so many of his MPs going against a three line whip will not have helped his position. Clive Lewis and Keir Starmer are 5/1 joint favourites to succeed Corbyn as elected leader.

Meanwhile, Hills have cut their odds for Article50 to be triggered before the end of March to 1/5 (83% chance) and offer 10/3 that it will not be. It is now 4/11(73%) that the UK ill officially leave the EU in 2019; 11/4 2018 or earlier; 7/1 2020 or later.

BY ELECTIONS...Copeland- 4/9 Con; 7/4 Lab; 20/1 Ukip; 33/1 LD....Stoke- 5/6 Lab; Evens Ukip; 25/1 Con; 33/1 LD
