The Grime artist is the same odds for a seat as Man United to win the Premier League.
When it comes to modern-day politics, you should not be surprised by anything. But even so, eyebrows will possibly be raised when you realise that UK rapper Stormzy has been priced up by two bookmakers to gain a seat in the next General Election.
Stormzy has been outspoken in the past about his political views, endorsing the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn while being a vocal critic of Prime Minister Teresa May.
Could the 25-year-old make the leap into politics on a more permanent basis? Well, both Ladbrokes and Coral have priced him at 100/1 to gain a seat.
That’s the same price as the Democrats and Veterans to win a seat. And to put it in a sporting perspective, it’s the same current price as Man United to win the Premier League this season.
There’s been hundreds of Twitter posts calling for Stormzy to be Prime Minister – We could see the first step to that happening soon!
Oddschecker Spokesman George Elek: “Stormzy is one of the most vocal mainstream artists when it comes to political opinion, so much so that two bookmakers have priced him up at 100/1 to gain a seat at the next General Election.
It’s the same current odds as Man United winning the Premier League this year – So maybe we shouldn’t dismiss the idea just yet!”
