With the House of Commons in turmoil other which variety of Brexit the nation should pursue, we have slashed the odds on a second EU referendum taking place before Britain is due to leave the European Union.
Though Boris Johnson leads the charge of politicians calling for a hard Brexit this morning, there’s also a strong movement urging Theresa May to give the population a chance to change their mind on leaving the EU.
And we have cut the price on a second referendum – from 3/1 to 5/2 on the re-vote taking place before April 1st.
The odds of Britain getting a ‘no deal’, the worst of both worlds according to many politicians, have also tumbled, to 11/10.
While, with BoJo continuing to manoeuvre against the Prime Minister, the price has also shortened on a Tory leadership vote to take place THIS YEAR – from 4/1 to 5/2.
Asked about the situation spokesman Paddy Power said: “Much like her moves in Africa, Theresa May’s Brexit plans are all over the place – and her own party is hardly in the mood for patience.
“Though BoJo’s scheming does appear to be making a leadership challenge more imminent, it’s not stemming the tide of a Brexit re-vote. Who knew that leaving a multi-billion-pound economic safety net might be a major cause of concern for the financial wellbeing for what is, ultimately, a rather small and remote island?”
