UK Prime Minister and Conservative Leader Theresa May is having trouble keeping her positions stable, especially the latter one. According to internet gambling news in the UK, May’s Brexit negotiations on keeping good ties with EU go against the conservative view. Presently, there are talks of a conservative leadership challenge. Which politicians could successfully replace May? If you’d like to place a bet on the next Conservative Party leader, do so before New Year’s Day 2019!
Jacob Rees-Mogg (13/2)
The first person to bet on the next Conservative Party leader is Jacob Rees-Mogg (13/2). As Head of European Research Group, Rees-Mogg is pro-Brexit. He has no mercy when criticizing the Brexit negotiations resumed by May. Rees-Mogg could probably do it better if he became a Conservative Party leader.
On the other hand, the only problem we see is Rees-Mogg may lose votes because he is against abortion and same-sex marriage. A lot of people are concerned about his views when it comes to sensitive topics like this.
Sajid Javid (11/2)
Sajid Javid has 11/2 odds to become the next Conservative Party leader.The Home Secretary’s good odds are not surprising at all considering that the media dubbed him the
“most popular potential replacement for Theresay May.”
That is not the only card up Javid’s sleeves. According to a YouGov poll published in July, 62% of the conservative party members agreed that Javid would make good leader. Most of them thought that he is “competent” and “up to the job” as the next Conservative leader.
Boris Johnson (5/1)
Last but not least, we have the next Conservative Party leader odds for Boris Johnson at 5/1. Ever since he resigned as a Foreign Secretary, the best online betting sites in the United Kingdom have made Johnson the bookmakers’ favourite to take May’s place.
Johnson left his position because he disapproved of how May is handling Brexit. His bold move brought in a better YouGov poll result published in August. Now, Johnson is 10 points more preferred than Javid. Apart from the next Conservative Party leader subject matter, be sure to check out Boris Johnson bridge betting odds too.
Bet on the Next Conservative Party Leader
The bookies’ favourite to become the next Conservative Party leader after Theresa May is Boris Johnson (5/1). Meanwhile, Sajid Javid (11/2) and Jacob Rees-Mogg (13/2) also have a huge potential to lead the right-wing.
