Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said, “After the Prime Minister’s press conference on Friday, rumours surrounding her future have continued to mount, and her odds on leaving Number 10 by the end of the year continue to tumble on Betfair Exchange.
“She’s now odds-on at 4/5 to move out of Downing Street in 2022, having been 3/1 before Friday’s press conference.
