Miliback? David Backed To Be Labour Leader

DAVID MILIBAND has been cut from 20/1 to 16/1 by William Hill to become the next Labour leader - and he has also been backed to be the next Prime Minister, with Hills shortening his odds from 33/1 to 25/1 after a flurry of support, including a number of three figure bets.

'David Miliband's clearly intentional intervention over Jeremy Corbyn's effect on the Labour Party has sparked more interest in his potential return to the forefront of British politics and he is being well backed both to be next Leader and next PM' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Meanwhile, Hills make Corbyn an odds-on shot to stand down as leader during 2017.

WHEN WILL CORBYN STAND DOWN? 4/5 2017; 7/2 2018; 10/1 2019; 7/2 2020; 16/1 2021 OR LATER

Next Labour leader: 5/1 Lewis; Starmer; 12/1 Long-Bailey; 14/1 Jarvis, McDonnell; 16/1 Nandy, D Miliband. Others on request.

NUTTALL TO STAND DOWN DURING 2017 – 1/2 YES; 6/4 NO
