Race to replace Corbyn begins

February 6th, 2020 Home, Media & Journalism, Uncategorized

After Jeremy Corbyn confirmed his intention to stand down as leader of the Labour Party, the candidates to replace him are already taking shape.

Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer is the early front-runner at 13/8, although many believe the next leader will be a woman – with a host favoured in the betting.

Rebecca Long-Bailey, Jess Phillips, Angela Rayner, Yvette Cooper and Emily Thornberry are all listed after Starmer to battle for the top job in Labour.

Coryn is quitting but will remain in place until his successor is confirmed – with the party’s membership having the deciding vote.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “The election result was devastating for Labour and it is no surprise that Jeremy Corbyn soon confirmed his departure.

“The big names are already being linked, but lets not forget that Corbyn was a huge outsider when he took over, and also that the party’s MPs won’t be deciding their leader – it is the members, who have shown they are not adverse to going for an outsider.”

Odds On Next Labour Party Leader
Sir Keir Starmer – 9/4
Rebecca Long-Bailey – 9/2
Jess Phillips – 6/1
Angela Rayner – 7/1
Lisa Nandy – 12/1
Yvette Cooper – 16/1
Emily Thornberry – 20/1
Clive Lewis – 20/1
John McDonnell – 20/1
Jonathan Ashworth 40/1
Sadiq Khan 40/1
