Corbyn 3/1 for Labour exit; Thornberry favourite to take over

Jeremy Corbyn is now just 3/1 to be replaced as the Labour leader this year, according to our traders.

The leader of the opposition has recently been criticised for his attendance at a meeting held by reportedly “radical left” group Jewdas.

It has left his position as Labour leader under threat, with Emily Thornberry favourite to replace the MP for Islington North as the head of the party at 5/1.

Thornberry is currently the Shadow First Secretary of State and the only candidate available at a single-figure price to replace Corbyn.

Angela Rayner is next best at 10/1 following by Rebecca Long-Bailey at 12/1.

Current Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is rated an outside shot at 20/1.
