Boris Johnson Exit Date Odds: PM slashed into 1/12 to leave in 2022

Boris Johnson is now 1/12 to leave his role as Prime Minister in 2022 after the resignations of Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid.

Savid was first to go, saying that the PM had lost his confidence. He explained that he believes the public are concluding that the government is "neither popular nor acting in the national interest".

He added: "The vote of confidence last month showed that a large number of our colleagues agree. I regret to say, however, that it is clear to me that this situation will not change under your leadership and you have therefore lost my confidence too."

Following him quickly out the door was Sunak, who said in a statement that the public expect government to be conducted "properly, competently and seriously".

He expressed that him leaving might spell the end of his ministerial career but stressed that the standards the public deserve to see from the head office justify his decision to go.

At the start of the day, some bookmakers had 2022 for Boris Johnson's exit date as long as evens (many 5/6 or 10/11), which has come in drastically to 1/12 (best price 1/10). He is now 93/5 with Betfair to exit in 2024 or later, while 2023 is 21/1.

At the end of yesterday, 2022 as the year for the next general election was as long as 14/1, but that price has come in today to 6/1 (12/1 best). 2024 remains the favourite at 1/5.
