Odds have been slashed by paddy Power into 5/6 on Boris Johnson getting the shortest dose Prime Minister.
Mr Johnson has handled in office so far, but is currently facing pressure following a series of accidents and competitive moves.
Under 119 days, should he serve, he had put the record for the shortest time in office .
MPs shocked for voting contrary to a no-deal Brexit by stripping 21 colleagues of their party membership. This motivated 100 Tory MPs over to write to Mr Johnson.
He has lost his parliamentary majority and seen resistance parties rally against the no-deal choice. Mr Johnson’s likelihood of quickening the UK’s exit from the EU look increasingly slim as his armoury proceeds to weaken.
A possibility is a general election will be called before the year’s close. Should that lead to an Tory defeat, he would be gone prior to November. This could make him the shortest.
Even a November election is priced at 7/4??at locations, while October is a long shot 33/1.
George Canning now holds the record for the shortest serving Prime Minister, having held office for 118 weeks before his departure cut his tenure brief in 1827.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”It has not come as a surprise that Boris Johnson has caused such a stir in his short time in No. 10 Downing Street.
“His’bull in a china shop’ approach has riled hordes of MPs from his party and throughout the opposition already. In case Brexit continues on this disastrous path we could well see him leave before November.”
