Dominic Cummings is out for revenge. He made numerous serious allegations at his committee appearance. People then challenged him to produce evidence of his claims. So, he did. Boris Johnson is unlikely to find them pleasant reading. Matt Hancock, the health secretary, even less so. They make his political career look over. So, why then do online sportsbook sites in the UK, like Bet365, have him as a 50/1 bet on the next UK PM race? Because it’s funny, that’s why.
“Totally ****ing hopeless.” Over the years many cabinet ministers have had that sort of judgment fall upon them. Politics is a rough-and-tumble business, after all. However, this wasn’t the opinion pages of the Guardian having a pop at a Tory minister. No. These were the words of the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. So, if you had Matt Hancock as your bet on the next UK PM, it may prove a fruitless wager. Already set up as a scapegoat he now looks like a cooked goose.
Dominic Cummings, a sacked advisor with more sour grapes than hair, is still at it. Releasing text messages from the early days of the current crisis he laid waste to any Tory claim at competence. Boris Johnson tried to laugh off 250,000 death estimates, didn’t have a strategy and intends to quit soon anyway. Anyone taking advantage of UK gambling laws then to bet on the next UK PM should probably ignore Matt at 50/1 at bet365. Matt Hancock is probably already job-hunting now.
Boris Johnson Skips On To The Next Scandal
“All under control.” When UK hospitals lacked PPE, that was Hancock’s claim. Cummings says that amounts to lying to the PM. Which, frankly, it does. Hancock lying to the PM is bad, mmm’kay? But Cummings goes further to accuse Boris Johnson of encouraging ministers to lie to Parliament. A heinous crime in the UK. Naturally, anyone who is apt to bet on the next UK PM then will see that Hancock is history. It’s only a matter of time before he’s quietly led away.

Indeed with this Conservative government bouncing from scandal to scandal throughout the crisis you’d expect the opposition to be doing well. They aren’t. The Labour Party are as effective an opposition as Sunny Delight is a shark repellent. Anyone thinking Keir Starmer as their bet on the next UK PM hasn’t paid attention. That’s why despite everything online betting sites in the UK like Bet365 only give the Labour leader 5/2 to be the next Prime Minister. It just won’t happen.

Sadly you can bet on the Conservatives to keep marching onward. Just as you can bet on Labour to mire themselves in internal squabbles. The scandals all wash off. The odds on Boris Johnson admitting anything are astronomical. So, everyone shrugs and waits for the next revelations. Cummings is bound to have more. He seems very intent on making sure no one will bet on the next UK PM being Matt Hancock. Trouble is that leaves us with people like Michael Gove.
“I said the public would march up Downing Street and lynch him.”
- Dominic Cummings – Advice to the PM, March 2020
You can bet on Michael Gove in No.10 bringing the country to the brink of civil war within a week. People hate him. They’d prefer to bet on sports in the UK at Bet365 without knowing the odds than have him run the country. Still, someone needs to run it, and right now it appears Boris has been running it into the ground. Matt Hancock has merely helped out. All of which makes Rishi Sunak the bookies favorite bet on the next UK PM, which is again, just another of their jokes.
We take a look at how a bet on the next UK PM can probably now exclude Matt Hancock as Dominic Cummings continues his assault on the government.
