Jeremy Corbyn Shortens To Get The Keys To Number 10
Prime Minister after Next General Election
Jeremy Corbyn has struck in an early blow in the general election campaign by closing the gap in the betting to be the Prime Minister on the other side of the vote on December 12th.
The Labour leader vowed on Wednesday to be a PM who would ‘open the door for others to walk through’
and his chances of making it to 10 Downing Street have been clipped into 2/1 from 3/1 over the last 24 hours, with the gap between him and Boris Johnson narrowing.
Johnson officially launched the Conservative Party campaign in London on Wednesday but his pitch was overshadowed by the resignation of Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns.
Johnson was a hot 2/7 shot to stay on as PM after the election but his odds are now going the wrong direction having been eased to 4/9.
Jo Swinson, who claimed she would do a better job as PM than either Johnson or Corbyn, is remaining steady as a 16/1 shot should the Lib Dems enjoy an electoral surge next month.
