Solid in Charge of Labour

Betting sites have betting odds available as to whether Labour leader Keir Starmer will face a leadership challenge before the next General Election.

The 71% confidence that there would be no challenge feeds directly into the shortness of his price in becoming the next PM aat the Next GE

A Labour candidate requires the nomination of at least 20% of Labour MP's to make a challenge for the leadership post and at the time of writing bookmakers think it is unlikely to happen offering odds of just 2/5 (That's a £100 bet to win just £40) that no challenge is initiated

Odds Probability
Yes 7/4 36.36%
No 2/5 71.43%

Bookmakers consider Keir Starmer to be one of the most Solid Labour Leaders in years is the betting on a leadership challenge is accurate.
