Current Labour leader, Keir Starmer, is facing increasing pressure from within his party after failing to stop the blue tide in local council and other elections.
Andy Burnham has been cut to as short as 5/1 to be the next Labour leader
Andy Burnham, who is currently running in the Greater Manchester Mayoral elections is fancied by a number of bookmakers as the next leader of the Labour Party. Despite being cut to as short as 5/1 with some bookmakers, the current Greater Manchester Mayor is a best price of 7/1 to be the next national representative of the Labour Party.
Burnham is also overwhelmingly backed by oddschecker punters, with 52.5% of bets siding with Burnham in the last 24 hours.

Burnham has been praised recently for his role in standing up for the people of Manchester during the pandemic with Starmer describing him as ‘really taking the government on’. Starmer reiterated that Burnham’s style of governance ‘is what Labour looks like in power.’
With increased pressure on the Labour party to move away from the characteristics of the Corbyn-era, it remains to be seen whether Starmer or a new candidate will be the one to take the party forward.
A Conservative majority in the next general election cut to as short as 11/10 from 13/8
Recent polls have also had a significant impact on betting odds for the next general election, with a Conservative majority now a best price of 5/4.
It’s a prediction that has been well backed among oddschecker punters in the last seven days, accruing 88.2% of votes in the market.
A crushing loss in the Hartlepool by-election has been particularly damaging for Labour - the seat will now be held by the Conservatives for the first time since it was created back in 1974.
