Potter in the running to take over Labour leadership
DANIEL RADCLIFFE is 500/1 with Ladbrokes to take over from Ed Miliband as the next Labour leader.
Following his public defection from the Lib-Dems it’s also 33/1 he stands as a Labour MP before 2050 with odds of 150/1 applying should the wizard ever make it to Number 10.
He’s just 5/1 to work his magic at the next Labour Party conference, while it’s 4/1 that any current Labour MP dons a cloak or picks up a wand for a photoshoot this year.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Ed needs to work his magic at the moment and Radcliffe could be just the man to help. The latest odds suggest a career in politics could be a reality when he hangs up his cloak for good.”
