Theresa May Steadies The Sinking Ship
Clearly it has been a long day for Theresa May but William Hill now believe that it is unlikely that there will be another General Election in 2017 – offering 2/7 there is not and 5/2 there is. Meanwhile Ruth Davidson is now 4/1 to be named as the next leader of the Conservative party having been 40/1 less than a year ago.
“Theresa May has perhaps steadied the ship with her speech today and we now believe that there is a good chance that we will not see a further General Election this year,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “Meanwhile the rise of Ruth Davidson continues and she is now the 4/1 third favourite to be named as the next Conservative leader.”
