Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said, “Punters don’t think Boris Johnson will fall on his sword any time soon and Betfair’s latest market gives him just an 11% chance of resigning in January. However Johnsons’s chances of seeing out the year are much slimmer, and 2022 is the odds-on 4/7 favourite to be the year that he steps down as party leader.

“Rishi Sunak is the 13/8 favourite to upgrade No11 to No10 and replace Johnson as the leader of the Conservative party, with Lizz Truss next at 11/4 and then Jeremy Hunt at 11/2.”
