The bookmakers are backing labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to leave his post sooner rather than later in the wake of Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision to call a snap general election on June 8. The general consensus among the British public has been that Corbyn is holding onto his position by a thread, and it appears a general election could be the manoeuvre that forces him out of Labour’s hot seat.
The MP for Islington North is tipped at 3/10 (1.30) to depart labour’s leadership in the second quarter of 2017—between April 1 and June 30—meaning the expectation is that a conservative win in June’s general election will result in his exit.
Meanwhile, as Jeremy Corbyn Exit Date Odds suggest Corbyn is priced at 8/1 (9.00) and 16/1 (17.00) to leave in the third quarter or fourth quarter of this year, respectively. Surprisingly, the labour leader can be found at shorter odds of 12/5 (3.40) to leave in 2018 or later, having already fought against much opposition to retain his place and perhaps able to continue doing so despite the rising tide.
