These days you can bet on British politics to constantly surprise, amaze and disappoint in equal measure and regardless of what happens with Brexit the nation will be heading to the polls before very long. That means now is the perfect time to check the odds on the Liberal Democrats in the next UK election at Bet365, which is one of the best online betting sites in the UK, because the party standing squarely for remaining in the EU is likely to be kingmaker when the votes are in.
The odds on Jeremy Corbyn being the next Prime Minister haven’t shifted much as the turmoil of Brexit continues. Everyone knows there’ll have to be an election irrespective of whether Britain gets a deal with the EU, fails to get a deal with the EU, or indeed fails to Brexit at all this Halloween. Given the Conservative mire on the subject it would seem obvious he’d be next in line, but the odds on the Liberal Democrats in the next UK election could scupper that happening.
- Liberal Democrat Majority – 40/1
- Labour Majority – 14/1
- Conservative Majority – 6/4
- No Overall Majority – 4/6
Jo Swinson is not a fan of Jeremy Corbyn. In an effort, perhaps, to woo moderate Conservative voters she has repeatedly refused to support the idea of the Labour leader being the next Prime Minister. She insists, instead, that she will be. The odds on the Liberal Democrats in the next UK election are based on their current 16% support in the polls, and anyone thinking about taking advantage of UK gambling laws to back them suddenly springing to victory should think again.
Labour Vs Lib Dems Threatens Majority Government In UK
Whilst many voters in the UK now claim other issues influence them more than Brexit, knife crime and the environment most frequently mentioned, you can unfortunately bet on Brexit to be foremost on the minds of many. The impact of a “No Deal” Brexit could well play its role, and you can expect the odds on the Liberal Democrats in the next UK election to dive significantly if their leader avoids the political bear trap of saying; “We told you so” in too smug a manner.
But that’s not the same as them actually standing a chance of winning over a majority of the population, we are not about to see a yellow wave sweep the nation, and so political realities mean that once again Britain could face a hung parliament and government by coalition. When looking at the odds on Liberal Democrats in the next UK election you’ll really only be able to get 14/1 at Bet365, one of the best online sportsbook sites in the UK and it’s ilk, to win most seats.
Of course, the number of seats seems almost moot when a Hung Parliament is the most likely outcome in the bookies opinion. It gets a price of just 4/6, with the odds on the Liberal Democrats in the next UK election securing an overall majority way out at 40/1. Not that the 14/1 you can get on a Labour majority or 6/4 on a Conservative majority are any more tempting. Indeed, it may become tempting to bet on a minority government in the UK, because it just might happen.
- October 2019 – 100/1
- November 2019 – 7/1
- 2020 Or Later – 13/8
- December 2019 – 8/11
The Conservatives get 7/2 to run a minority government (something they’re pretty much doing now) after the polls, and Labour 3/1 to be put in that awkward position, something made all the more likely by Jo Swinson’s current anti-Corbyn position. Perhaps sadly the odds on the Liberal Democrats in the next UK election to end up as a minority government are 16/1 at best, so Jo’s dream could be like those who bet on sports in the UK and back Watford to win the EPL. Nuts.
