Odds cut on a 2018 General Election following David Davis resignation

Odds have been slashed on a General Election taking place in 2018, following the resignation of Brexit Secretary David Davis.

Bookies have cut odds from 6/1 yesterday into as short as 6/4, following the news Davis will step down.

The general public is backing an election being called this year, with a whopping 90% of bets being placed on it taking place before 2019.

Interestingly, Davis is the most popular bet on who will become the next Prime Minister, attracting 22% of all bets in the market.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek said: “Just when Theresa May finally thought that she had made a breakthrough in her Brexit negotiations, this resignation late on Sunday night could spell a turbulent week for the PM.

“Punters are sensing that a coup could be on the horizon, and it could be yet another walk to the polling station for UK voters.”
