We’ve slashed the odds of Theresa May performing a Brexit ‘EU-Turn’, after European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said that Britain could choose to stay in the EU.
We’re now quoting 7/1 that the UK government will announce that Brexit will not proceed before the official cut-off point of April 1st 2019.
We’re offering the same odds that a second EU referendum takes place next year.
May, who was earlier undermined by a leaked memo claiming that she had “begged” Juncker for help during a private dinner, is under huge pressure to step down as Prime Minister – with a 2018 General Election rated at just a 9/4 shot.
And Mrs May’s chances of still being PM at the time of Brexit, should it happen, are ranked at 2/1 – meaning there’s a 66.6% likelihood that she won’t be at No.10 Downing Street come that time.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Theresa May has shown herself liable to making a U-Turn, so why not a EU-Turn over Brexit?
“Despite being the word of the year, Brexit has been a shambles, and with no progress being made, Theresa May decide to quit while she’s ahead.”
4/11 Two or more different UK Prime Ministers to be involved in Brexit negotiations
Evens No Brexit deal to be reached before April 1st 2019
2/1 Theresa May still to be PM when the UK leaves the EU
9/4 Next UK General Election to take place in 2018
4/1 The UK to apply to rejoin the EU by 2027
7/1 Another EU referendum to be held before the end of 2018
7/1 UK government to announce that Brexit will not proceed
