JEREMY CORBYN will cease to be Labour leader in 2016, when he will be replaced by Dan Jarvis, say political punters, who are placing bets with William Hill for the newly elected leader to depart next year at odds of 7/4, and Jarvis to be his successor at odds of 3/1.
'We are offering 6/4 about Corbyn still being Labour leader at the next General Election, but nobody seems interested him in backing to survive that long and we make him 1/2 to be gone by then, but the favourite year for his departure is next year, and Dan Jarvis has emerged as favourite to be his successor' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
WHEN WILL JEREMY CORBYN CEASE TO BE LABOUR LEADER?...7/4 2016; 3/1 2020; 7/2 2015; 11/2 2021 or later; 7/1 2018; 8/1 2017 and 12/1 2019.
CORBYN TO LEAD LABOUR INTO GENERAL ELECTION? 1/2 NO; 6/4 YES
NEXT ELECTED LABOUR LEADER....3/1 Dan Jarvis; 7/1 David Miliband; 8/1 Chuka Umunna; Tom Watson; 10/1 Lisa Nandy; 16/1 Angela Eagle; Keir Starmer; 18/1 Rachel Reeves; Stephen Kinnock. Others on request.
