For those who like to bet on politics in the UK it is an infinitely fascinating book. Will the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, see out the year or will the party, people or opposition oust him? No one is entirely sure, and each option seems equally as likely. That’s why, as partygate peters out, online bookies in the UK like Bet365 are reexamining the odds on Boris Johnson. He think’s he’ll survive, and they have to hedge their bets. But can he really muddle through this mire?

In a desperate attempt to right the ship, No.10 has instigated a few changes in personnel. Chris Heaton-Harris, for example, has taken over as chief whip. The Prime Minister hopes getting rid of Mark Spencer will absolve him of blame over the Owen Patterson scandal. Although, he’s only moved over to Leader of the Commons. No one will give you good odds on Boris Johnson attempting anything more than cosmetic changes. Hence, Jacob Rees-Mogg gets an odd new job.

Jacob Rees-Mogg (often described as the MP for the 18th Century) is now Brexit Opportunities Minister. No. Don’t ask what that means. No one knows. Of course, HMRC thinks most of the opportunities are to lose trade and money, but hey-ho. Perhaps Jacob has something up his sleeve. Not that you’ll get very good odds on Boris Johnson having a plan for Jacob to follow. No one believes he does. Online betting sites in the UK like Bet365 just don’t think he needs one.   

UK PM Makes Lion King Comparisons 

He reportedly sang Gloria Gaynor’s famous hit to his new Communications Director. That shows remarkable confidence after all that has gone on. He’s under police investigation and compared sacking his senior staff to The Lion King, a children’s cartoon. You’d think he’d be toast by now. However, none of the serious candidates to take over seem willing to take the plunge. Oh sure Tom Tugendhat has, but you’ll not find very good odds on Boris Johnson having really noticed.

Next Conservative Leader Odds

  • Sajid Javid – 16/1
  • Ben Wallace – 16/1
  • Michael Gove – 16/1
  • Penny Mordaunt – 9/1
  • Tom Tugendhat – 8/1
  • Jeremy Hunt – 7/1
  • Liz Truss – 11/2
  • Rishi Sunak – 13/8 

Tom Tugendhat gets 8/1 right now. So, he’s not a great bet on the next Conservative Party leader, because those odds won’t get any better. Indeed when other, stronger, candidates pipe up, they’ll lengthen horribly. Online sportsbook sites in the UK only really give a chance to Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss. Bet365 will currently give you 13/8 and 11/2 on them respectively. Spot the difference? Yes that’s right. They’ve a hope. However neither one is yet to speak out against Boris.

Bet365 Has All The Odds On Boris Johnson And UK Politics

Now usually you can bet on the Conservatives to rush to oust someone damaging their party. However, they know the odds on Boris Johnson going quietly are quite long and worry if given the option he’ll instigate some sort of scorched earth policy on his way out. So they’re cautiously waiting for the internal pressure to reach critical mass. You can bet on Boris Johnson hoping it never does. He’s that kind of optimist. You know, one completely blind to manifest reality.

Boris Johnson Exit Odds

  • 2024+ – 3/1
  • 2023 – 11/2
  • 2022 – 2/5 

So anyone in the UK gambling laws of decency would see Boris bounce of his own accord are just dreaming. He’s shameless. That’s why Bet365 has had to readjust their odds on Boris Johnson surviving, and freeze their odds on the next Conservative Party leader. No one is entirely sure the British political system is any more capable of combating the wholly shameless than the American one. However, the odds on the Conservatives tolerating him taking over are just silly.
