Cameron as short as 6/1 to leave as hacking scandal hits hard

| 19.07.2011

David Cameron is under pressure and the political punters know it.

The Prime Minister has been backed in from 100/1 to 6/1 as the hacking scandal continues to take victims, and with a Commons appearance scheduled for tomorrow, the money is coming thick and fast for Cameron to leave.

A trip to Africa had to be cut short by Cameron in the wake of the News International scandal and Cameron can expect a grilling from the Commons culture committee tomorrow.

Rupert and James Murdoch, Rebekah Brooks and former Metropolitan Police commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson are all in front of the Commons today and Cameron could find himself in a very precarious position by the end of the day.

His cabinet members are expecting a strong fight from Cameron tomorrow but, depending on what is revealed in the Commons, the damage could be done today.

Chris Huhne has been the main focus of the next cabinet member to leave betting for a long time but the Liberal Democrat MP has had to take a backseat to Cameron during the past fortnight.

Having opened at 8/1 to be the next cabinet member this morning, the money is already influencing the odds and Cameron may struggle to last the week as Prime Minister.
