Odds crumble on Boris resignation following court ruling

That sound? It's s**t hitting the fan in No 10

Comments

We’ve slashed the odds on Boris Johnson resigning as Prime Minister, after the Supreme Court ruled his decision to suspend Parliament was unlawful.

Our traders now make it just 2/1 that he stands down this year – while it is 6/4 that he is removed before the next General Election.

We’ve also gone odds-on that BoJo is the shortest-serving PM ever (5/6).

Amid the current political chaos, we’re also expecting a General Election this year (1/3) – with December considered most likely (13/10).

And, amid the latest controversy, the Conservatives remain the odds-on favourites (1/3) to take most seats.

Such is their lack of opposition, Labour are now considered less likely (3/1) than the Lib Dems (5/2) to get 20-25% of the vote.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “We think Britain is destined to back to the polls – so the country can spend the next couple of years arguing about the result.
“Though we still make the Conservatives the clear favourites for the General Election, the odds on Boris going are shortening after the Supreme Court’s ruling – get ready for yet more chaos.”
