Cameron closing in on favouritism in Next MP to leave market

Time is ticking for David Cameron according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies have had to slash the odds him of being the next MP to leave Cabinet to 6/1 overnight – making him the joint second favourite minister to leave Cabinet next.

Only Chris Huhne appears to have more chance of leaving before him at 2/1 and it’s 3/1 that Cameron isn’t around at the next General Election (1/5 he is).

There’s also been a shake up in the next Metropolitan Police Commissioner market as Bernard Hogan-Howe is backed for the job (now 3/1 joint favourite).

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “It’s one way traffic for Cameron. The money has spoken and his price of leaving his shortening by the hour.”

he added: “Hogan-Howe is all the rage in the Met chief market.”
