Tories Love Labour’s Loss: Odds Drift After Resignations

The resignations of seven Labour MPs on Monday morning may have damaged the Party’s hopes of winning the next General Election, whenever it may be, however, the odds suggest it is water off a duck’s back for Jeremy Corbyn. The Labour Leader is 1/25 with William Hill to lead his party into the next General Election, however Labour’s odds of bagging victory have drifted.


They are 11/4 from 9/4 to win by a majority while the Conservative’s odds of winning the most seats have been cut from 10/11 to 4/5.


“It would seem as though Jeremy Corbyn will dig his heels in until at least the next General Election however, he needs to get his house in order soon as Labour’s chances of winning power any time soon are drifting with him at the helm,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
