As the UK scrambles to come to terms with the exit polls tonight, Paddy Power have priced up who will succeed Theresa May as Conservative Leader.
With May under-pressure as a result of the potentially disastrous figures hinted at by the first exit poll, Boris Johnson is in prime position to replace her at 2/1 to be the next Tory leader.
Asked about May’s position spokesman Paddy Power said: “Will the Tories smother Theresa if the exit polls prove to be right? Maybe, after a particularly haphazard election campaign.
“So I’m sure they’d be relieved to see a safe pair of hands on the till if Boris Johnson takes over. His wait for the top spot could soon be BoJo-ver.”
