25 years since Tony Blair’s landslide election victory and now Labour are 4/1 to win overall majority at next General Election

Twenty-five years ago, Blair’s Labour won a 179-seat majority – the biggest in their history, but now under Keir Starmer, the party are 4/1 on Betfair Exchange to win an overall majority in the next General Election.

The Conservatives are 11/4 to retain their command in the Commons and a no overall majority is the most-likely outcome at 10/11.

Boris Johnson’s party are odds-on at 5/6 to win the most seats at the next General Election, while Labour are 6/5. As Johnson remains under pressure with the partygate fallout, he is 5/4 to leave his role as Prime Minister this year and Liz Truss is the 6/1 favourite to replace him.

Meanwhile, Louise Haigh is the current 16/5 favourite to be the next Labour leader with Andy Burnham 4/1.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said, “Labour won a historic 179-seat majority under Tony Blair’s leadership 25 years ago, but have not been in power since 2010. Now, they are 4/1 to win a majority at the next General Election, with the Tories more fancied at 11/4 to stay in power, while punters on Betfair Exchange think a no majority is the most likely result at 10/11.

“Despite continual calls for Boris Johnson to resign as Prime Minister, the Tories are odds-on at 5/6 to win the most seats at the next election, while Labour are 6/5. With Johnson’s position remaining uncertain, he is 5/4 to leave his role this year, with Liz Truss the 6/1 favourite to replace him as Tory leader.”
