Is Ed Miliband on the way out?

| 06.11.2014


Ladbrokes cut the odds of Ed Miliband being replaced as Labour leader before the election from 7/1 to 6/1 today after a round of media speculation that some in the party want him out.

If an emergency replacement is needed, pundits focused on two possibles; Andy Burnham and Alan Johnson. We shortened both of them up in the betting to be next Labour leader.


Burnham has gone from a 25/1 shot in June to today’s 4/1 odds. There is every chance he will be favourite quite soon, as nobody seems very interested in backing Yvette Cooper any more
