Next Labour Leader: Rebecca Long-Bailey Now Odds-On

The Rebecca Long-Bailey/Angela Rayner ‘pact’ has caused a huge shake up in the betting for who will replace Jeremy Corbyn as the next Labour leader and Rebecca Long-Bailey has been slashed from 5/2 into 4/5 to get the job. Lisa Nandy is now the 3/1 second favourite with Keir Starmer 7/1 and Angela Rayner is 33/1 from 7/1.


“This is the first big move in the leadership campaign and it could be decisive,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.


Next Permanent Labour Leader: 4/5 Rebecca Long-Bailey, 3/1 Lisa Nandy, 7/1 Keir Starmer, 14/1 Jess Phillips, 25/1 Yvette Cooper, 33/1 Angela Rayner, 33/1 Dan Jarvis 40/1 Emily Thornberry
