    The 15-8 May bet 365 (2-1 SJames) may well be value if what I read has a 50% chance of being accurate.

    Boris Johnson, old Etonian, likes to emphasize his Turkish roots when it suits. Clear favourite and buffoon to whom the Conservatives are most welcome.


    The yet unenlightened Theresa May thinks she has a chance, though has blotted her copy book with some of the Tory faithful by backing Remain in the recent referendum. Stuck at the Home Office for six years her rivals became disgruntled there was no prison riot as a pretext to dump her. She remains the only realistic alternative for the "Anyone But Boris" campaign.


    Michael Gove has bottled his chance of gaining momentum and becoming leader by saying he doesn't want the job, living up to Cameron's description of him as the Duracell Bunny.


    New Welsh Secretary Stephen Crabb has not yet proved himself and remains a nonentity in the field. On a ticket with prospective Chancellor Sajid Javid, who did himself no favours by flying off to Australia during the Port Talbot steel crisis.


    Jeremy Hunt is ambitious, but an Iago figure, and appearing stiff and unnatural on screen. A steely confidence cannot conceal the pig's ear he made of the Junior doctor's dispute. No chance.


    George Osborne: non starter.

    The man Gove is a bit of a shithouse isn't he.

    It's Theresa May-has to be, especially now she's told her colleagues there won't be a General Election until 2020.

    When it comes to politics prices (and possibly some other speciality markets for all I know) you can't rely on the odds comparison sites for accurate best prices as some prices aren't on at least one or more such sites.

    Bet 365 are 11-8 2020.* Still the favourite of course though.

    (Sky are 4/6). * I'm assuming Bet365 would pay out if it was later .


    Not that anyone would be betting on this. Fuck me some of the posters on here would be grateful just to be alive in 2020 I would have thought.:unsure

    Speaking of ambition I am reminded of the quote from Macbeth: "vaulting ambition which o'erleaps itself" and this is surely the case with the Establishment's reserve candidate Andrea Leadsom. No I had never heard of her either, but she is being built up as the Brexit favourite who also has children, and if you must pick a weakness with May as Conservatives are wont to do those are they. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...e-woman-to-lead-britain-out-of-the-eu-and-to/

    Andrea Leadsome has made a fatal blunder drawing attention to her rival's childlessness and I would think she's now out of the race for good. Link to follow.

    It's a fine line between building up the suspense and people falling asleep waiting, Steve :sleep

    It's not been reflected in the betting?

    Apart from the small fact that she didn't actually say it?
