The odds are in on the next Prime Minister, and Boris Johnson could soon be on his way to 10 Downing Street.
After stealing the show at the Tory Party Conference on Monday, BoJo is now just 11/2 to be the next PM, while it’s 4/1 he’s the next Conservative Leader.
That shift means only Jeremy Corbyn (4/1) is more likely to replace Theresa May in the top job.
Talking of Theresa, she’s 6/1 to be replaced before the end of this year. Meanwhile, it’s odds-on she leaves the job in 2019, at 4/6.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s already been a good week for Boris on the betting front with plenty thinking he’ll replace Theresa May in Downing Street next year.”
