Theresa May now 5/4 to leave post by end of the year
Theresa May has a rocky few months ahead as Prime Minister, according to our latest odds.
The Prime Minister has come under fire from Pro-Brexit and Remain-supporting MPs in the Tory party recently. That’s led to plenty of speculation over an imminent leadership challenge.
But our traders don’t think May will go in the next few days – she’s a long 10/1 to resign this week.
However, it’s only 11/10 that a No Confidence vote is called this year.
And it’s 5/4 that she’s replaced as Prime Minister before the end of December.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “It goes without saying that the pressure on the PM is increasing at a rate of knots, however, the odds suggest she will stand her ground for a little while longer yet.”
