Jeremy Corbyn’s change in position on a general election – with a no-deal Brexit said to be off the table – has all but guaranteed Boris Johnson’s snap poll.
Paddy Power saw the odds crash from 1/5 last night for a poll to take place before Christmas, into 1/25 this morning, before finally suspending the betting now and taking no further bets.
However, the likelihood of Britain leaving the EU without a deal is now less likely than ever at odds-on 1/100.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “It’s taken Boris four attempts, but it looks like this one could be all but sorted as Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour have swung their position on a snap poll.
“We saw our odds crumble significantly this morning and have since decided to stop taking bets on a general election taking place this year altogether – it’s nailed on.”
Evens No overall majority
33/1 Liberal Democrat
100/1 Brexit Party
