Yvette Cooper Halved In Price For Labour Leadership

In the last 48hrs William Hill has halved the price of Yvette Cooper becoming the next leader of the Labour party from 16/1 to 8/1. As a result Yvette Cooper is now the fourth favourite behind Keir Starmer (7/4), Rebecca Long-Bailey (9/4) and Lisa Nandy (6/1).


“Yvette Cooper said she would decide whether to stand for the leadership over the Christmas period and the money suggests she will go for it,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
