Who Are the Betting Favourites to Be Next Conservative Party Leader?

Rishi Sunak is the current Chancellor of the Exchequer and the bookies think that this millionaire is most likely to replace Johnson should there be a Conservative Party Leader vote. Sunak is regarded as having performed a strong job as Chancellor and he oversaw a lot of furlough schemes when the United Kingdom went into lockdown.

Sunak was slow in coming forward to support Johnson following the revelations that the lockdown had been breached by the Prime Minister, with the Chancellor also not present in the House of Parliament during PM Questions where the former Mayor of London was grilled by a strong Labour Party opposition.

Sunak has clearly not publicly declared that he wants the Prime Minister job and a lot depends on the 41-year-old being able to get mass support from backbenchers who will be potentially floating voters when it comes to assessing the right person to lead the country forward.

Could Liz Truss Become the Next Tory Party Leader?

Liz Truss is someone who could throw her hat into the ring should Boris Johnson step aside and it will be interesting to see whether the Foreign Secretary can become the third female to land the Prime Minister job, following in the footsteps of Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May. There will be some that feel that she offers a fresh break from the current PM who is doing an atrocious job.

Truss has been a member of parliament since the 2010 General Election and his risen through the ranks in a fairly short space of time. She was successful in helping the Brexit bill be passed through the Commons although perhaps she might lack the capability to unite a fractured party.

What Are the General Election Betting Odds?

The latest political betting odds suggest that the next General Election could be a wide open betting heat. The next UK General Election betting odds relate to the big vote that is likely to take place in 2024, with the Conservative Majority trading at 7/4 and it’s possible that we might see a Conservative Minority, especially with the polls showing that the Tories are well down when it comes to popular opinion.

A Conservative Minority is available at betting odds of 5/2, although the odds on a Labour minority has shortened and could be the value bet at 100/30, while a Labour majority is now backable at 4/1. The latest UK politics odds illustrate that it could be a close-run thing between the Tories and Labour in terms of the most seats that are racked up during the process.
