General Election 2019: the latest odds for the UK and Milton Keynes constituencies
The United Kingdom goes to the polls next month for the country’s third General Election in four years.
Current Prime Minister Boris Johnson and leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn are the chief contenders to enter Number 10, with the leader of the Conservatives fancied by the bookies at 1/4 to emerge as the country’s leader in the early hours of December 13.
Corbyn is less fancied at 5/2, while the leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson, who earlier this month made the audacious claim that she was “Britain’s next Prime Minister'' is an outsider, with odds of 33/1.
According to bookmakers, the most likely outcome of the General Election is a Conservative majority with odds currently floating at 1/2. A hung parliament is the second most probable outcome with odds of 7/4. A Labour majority is highly unlikely if odds are to be believed - that result is listed as 25/1.
The Conservative Party are fancied by the bookies to hold on to both Milton Keynes North and Milton Keynes South next month.
They're backed at 1/5 to clinch Milton Keynes North with Labour and the Lib Dems their nearest rivals at 10/3 and 10/1 respectively.
In Milton Keynes South the Tories are heavy favourites with odds of 1/8 for them to emerge victorious on December 13. Labour are their only real competitors with odds of 4/1.
These odds were taken from Paddy power and are accurate as of November 25
