Keir Starmer is favourite to take over as PM...
Bookmakers have unanimously cut odds on Boris Johnson’s exit date being in the year 2020, as pressure continues to mount on the Prime Minister.
Odds have slowly shortened on a premature exit for the PM since the COVID outbreak started, and now bookies have cut odds from 12/1 into as short as 2/1.
In layman’s terms, that’s a jump from a 7.7% implied probability chance, to a 33.3% chance of a 2020 exit being predicted by bookmakers.
One firm is offering the best odds of 4/1 that Johnson leaves office in 2020.
Odds have also been cut on Johnson’s exit date being in the year 2021, which has been cut from 10/1 into as short as 11/2.
It’s 10/1 that Johnson leaves in 2022 and 6/1 that he exits the role in 2023.
Elsewhere, Labour leader Keir Starmer has overtaken Chancellor Rishi Sunak as the clear favourite to replace Boris Johnson, with Starmer now 7/4 clear favourite.
That means Sunak has been pushed out to 4/1 second favourite, with Michael Gove (12/1), Dominic Raab (16/1) and Jeremy Hunt (25/1) the next most likely.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: "Boris Johnson's handling of the coronavirus pandemic has come under intense scrutiny, and it's finally looking as if things might be coming to a head for the PM.
"As with Donald Trump in the States, approval ratings aren't heading in a favourable direction, but with many-a-culture war still left to concoct, Johnson will likely have sufficient support from enough quarters to ensure his tenure isn't put in too much jeopardy just yet.”
