Keir Starmer is 8/1 to leave his role as Labour leader next year after coming under-fire for sacking a junior shadow transport minister who joined striking rail workers on the picket line.

Starmer, who has failed to publicly support the latest round of rail strikes, is 15/1 to leave his role before the New Year, while he is odds-on at 1/6 to be gone by 2024 or later.

Looking at who could replace Starmer, Andy Burnham is the 9/2 favourite, with Rachel Reeves 15/2 and Angela Rayner 8/1, Labour are currently 7/2 to win a majority at the next General Election, while the Conservatives are 4/1.
