Odds on Boris Johnson to leave his role this year have shortened to 15/8 from 5/2 since the Conservatives lost their Wakefield and Tiverton and Honiton seats in Thursday’s by-elections.
Jeremy Hunt is the 6/1 favourite to be the next Conservative leader at 11/2, with Penny Mordaunt 6/1 and Liz Truss 8/1 and the Tories are now 3/1 to win an overall majority at the next General Election, while Labour are 4/1.
