Punters think Chuka is right man to fix Labour mess

Sponsored post.

Labour have indulged in plenty of soul searching since their crushing General Election defeat. But while the party’s top brass muddle through their appointment of a new leader political punters have been far more proactive in making their voice heard.

Ladbrokes are reporting a flurry of bets being taken on Shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umunna with the 36-year-old’s popularity continuing to soar.

Umunna was a 6/1 shot for the leadership before Labour’s calamitous showing at the polls but now finds himself as short as 11/8.

Meanwhile, the battle for the Liberal Democrats top post appears to be done and dusted. Ambitious Westmorland and Lonsdale MP Tim Farron is the hot favourite at 1/5 with Norman Lamb (7/2) and Alistair Carmichael (14/1) next best in the betting.

Fancy a political punt? Sign-up to Ladbrokes and get a £25 free bet! Place your bets on the Next Labour Leader, Next Lib Dem Leader and a wide range of other markets.

Quote of the Day

Tory MP Nick Boles says what everyone thinks…

“There is a timidity and lack of ambition about Mrs May’s Government which means it constantly disappoints. Time to raise your game, Prime Minister.”
