Despite refusing to resign in Wednesday’s Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs), Boris Johnson is odds-on at 4/7 to leave No.10 by the end of July.

Penny Mordaunt’s odds to replace Johnson as the next Conservative leader have been slashed to 5/1 from 7/1 overnight, while Rishi Sunak has been backed in to 11/2 from 17/2, looking at the rest of the year, Johnson is 1/11 to leave his role before 2023.
