Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said, “With more and more Tory MPs turning on Boris Johnson amid the ‘partygate’ fallout, with the latest being Andrea Leadsom, 2022 has been heavily backed and it is now the new favourite to be the year the Prime Minister leaves No.10.
“Previously, 2024 or later had been the favourite year for Johnson to leave, but that is now 6/4, while 2023 is 14/5. Jeremy Hunt is the frontrunner to be the next Conservative leader at 5/1, with former favourite Liz Truss 13/2.”
