Boris backed for long spell as PM

July 24th, 2019 Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Politics, Press Release

Boris Johnson is now the new Prime Minister, and he is being backed by the Bookmakers to stay long-term and is already odds-on to win the next general election.

Johnson has made history by become the first ever favourite to beat a rival in the Conservative Party Leadership election, as he recorded almost double the votes of his opponent – Foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt.

After sealing his win Johnson stated that he was looking forward to sealing Brexit and beating Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the future, and the odds suggest he will – he is 4/6 to still be PM after the next election – and it is 11/10 that we see a General election in 2019.

He is also being backed on his other promise to deliver Brexit this year – it is 6/5 that is happens between July and December 2019.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “Boris’s election record is hugely impressive – London Mayor, Leave Campaign and now Conservative Leader – so it is easy to see why he is odds-on to win the next General Election too.

“Bookmakers are also backing him to get Brexit through in the coming months, but they believe it will be with a Deal rather than No Deal…with No Deal currently at 9/4 with no ‘No Deal’ at 3/10.”
