Who'll Get Corbyn Gig When He Goes?
DESPITE Jeremy Corbyn's denials that he will stand down any time soon, his colleagues are clearly jostling for position for when he does depart, and with bookmakers William Hill still believing it is an odds-on chance at 4/5 that the current leader will not see out the year, Clive Lewis and Keir Starmer have been installed as the 5/1 joint favourites to be his elected successor.
'Mr Corbyn may believe that this race does not yet have a starting date, but there are plenty of contenders clearly in training , and just waiting for the runners to come under orders' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
WHEN WILL CORBYN STAND DOWN? 4/5 2017; 7/2 2018; 10/1 2019; 7/2 2020; 16/1 2021 OR LATER
