Jeremy Corbyn 5/1 Favourite for Next Prime Minster

by Glenn Baird - November 15, 2018

Today was always going to be a difficult one the UK’s Prime Minister, Theresa May.

The proposed Brexit deal, described by Jeremy Corbyn as a “botched deal” has left the Tory Party split down the middle, with cries for a vote of no-confidence echoing through West Minster.

At the time of writing the 48-letter threshold needed to call a vote of No Confidence on May’s reign has yet to be triggered. However, dissent within the party has been forth-coming, with many believing that even if The Prime Minister makes it to end of the day, it is only a matter of time before she is replaced.

This morning, 2 prominent Tory MPs handed in their resignation in protest over May’s handling of the current Brexit deal. This comes just a few weeks after Tracey Crouch, former Minister for Sport, resigned over delays to the reduction of maximum wagers on fixed odds betting machines. That particular issue has not gone away with more than 70 MPs voicing opposition to the decision that was announced in this term’s Budget.

A vote on the issue is expected in the House of Commons next month, which along with a Brexit deal, which many consider to be unsatisfactory, could see the emergence of a new party leader.

Prior to this morning Boris Johnston was the bookie’s favourite to replace May, but after announcing his own resignation first thing this morning, Dominic Rabb, former Brexit Minister, is now 6/1 to become the next leader of the Tory Party in the UK.

It is also likely that if a vote of No Confidence is passed that a Snap General Election could be called. If this was to happen, the bookies have Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn as the favourite to become the next UK Prime Minister.
