The Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s odds to leave No.10 have shortened for the second day in a row as he is now 7/4 to go this year, having been 11/5 yesterday.
With Sue Gray’s report into ‘partygate’ expected to be published very soon, Johnson is also 7/2 to depart in 2023 and 6/5 to exit in 2024 or later.
The Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is the 13/2 favourite to replace Johnson as Tory leader with Jeremy Hunt following closely behind at 7/1.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said, “With Sue Gray’s report into ‘partygate’ expected to drop any time now following new pictures appearing to show Boris Johnson drinking alcohol at a gathering in No.10 during lockdown, the Prime Minister’s odds to leave this year continue to tumble.
“He is now 7/4 to go before the New Year, having been 11/5 yesterday and 14/5 on Monday. Looking at who could be the next Conservative leader, Liz Truss is the 13/2 favourite to replace Johnson, with Jeremy Hunt 7/1.”
