Next Labour leader odds

Text settings

The latest William Hills odds for the next leader of the Labour party make interesting reading in the light of last night’s results and the list of cabinet ministers at risk.

D Miliband 2/1

E Balls 5/1

A Johnson 7/1

J Straw 10/1

J Purnell 10/1

J Denham 14/1

A Burnham 14/1

Y Cooper 16/1

H Benn 16/1

D Alexander 16/1

E Miliband 16/1

H Harman 20/1

Personally, I quite fancy a sly fiver on Jon Cruddas but William Hills doesn’t offer odds on him yet.
