Next Labour Leader: Market Suggests Three Horse Race
William Hill can report a solid move for Kier Starmer this morning and he is now the red hot 4/9 favourite (from 4/7) to replace Jeremy Corbyn as the leader of the Labour party. Rebecca Long Bailey is the 7/2 second favourite, with Lisa Nandy 12/1. The big drifter is Yvette Cooper who has double in price from 8/1 to 16/1 as it looks increasingly unlikely that she will run.
“It has been a roller-coaster few days for Yvette Cooper but it now looks unlikely that she will enter the race, leaving what looks like a three horse race,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
