Corbyn’s Odds Of Leaving Cut By Bookmakers

William Hill make Jeremy Corbyn a 9/2 shot to leave his position as leader of the Labour Party this year while he is 7/2 to leave his role before his embattled opposition, Theresa May, leaves as leader of the Conservatives.


Should he leave, it is Emily Thornberry who is the 9/2 favourite to take over.


“Jeremy Corbyn is coming under pressure from certain sectors and he is certainly a much shorter price to leave this year now than at the turn of the year when his stock seemed to be at an all-time high,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

When will Theresa May leave as PM: 11/8 2018; 13/8 2019; 10/1 2020; 14/1 2021; 3/1 2022 or later
