Keir Starmer favourite to succeed Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader

| 19.04.2017

Keir Starmer is the clear favourite to replace Jeremy Corbyn at the helm of the Labour party, according to the latest odds.

With Corbyn’s position looking untenable now that a General Election is on the cards, we’ve seen money pour in for the Holborn and St Pancras MP to become the next leader at 5/1.

Former front runner Clive Lewis subsequently sees his odds drift out to 8/1 in the betting, while Dan Jarvis is chalked up at 12/1.

Punters have also been backing David Miliband which has forced his odds to tumble into 16/1, and the same price is on offer for Lisa Nandy, Angela Rayner and Rebecca Long-Bailey.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “It’s a case of when and not if Corbyn goes this year, and savvy political punters are already wagering hefty sums on Starmer being the right candidate to replace him.”
