Time up for Theresa? Odds slashed on PM leaving in 2019


Theresa May’s time as Prime Minister may be coming to an end, according to our latest odds.

The former Home Secretary is now just 8/11 to move out of 10 Downing Street in 2019 – the shortest odds yet.

It’s 5/1 that May goes before the end of this year, while we go 2/1 that she sticks it out until 2020 or later.

If she does leave, Boris Johnson is the likeliest replacement at 4/1. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is second in the betting at 6/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “May’s days in Downing Street are numbered according to the latest odds, with a 2019 exit now looking more likely than ever.”
