Next Tory Leader, Prime Minister Forecast and Betting Market Odds

Politics / UK Politics Nov 18, 2018 - 11:58 AM GMT

Politics

Britain is counting down to a change of Prime Minister following the release of Theresa May's disastrous 'brexit deal' where nearly every British red line has been watered down towards nothing in what amounts to a 585 page suicide note that triggered Tory MP's to start sending letters to the party's 1922 committee where the requirement is for a minimum of 48 letters to trigger a leadership contest that will likely be announced sometime next week as I have covered at length in the following article and video.


BrExit War - Tory Party About to Replace Theresa May for NO DEAL BrExit

NO DEAL HARD BrExit Tory Chaos, Theresa May Leadership Challenge

The conclusion of which is a forecast of who is the most likely person to become the Next Tory Leader / Prime Minister out of the following 5 most probable contenders, with Jacob Rees-Mogg deemed to be the favourite followed closely by Boris Johnson.

  • Boris Johnson
  • Dominic Raab
  • David Davis
  • Michael Gove
  • Jacob Rees-Mogg

So lets take a look at what the betting markets (Betfair) are saying in terms whether Theresa May can survive a leadership challenge and if not who is the money being put on, and how it compares against my forecast.

Theresa May - Exit Dates

The most betting is on Theresa May leaving before the end of December 2018 and thus supporting the view that she will not survive a leadership challenge. However, the market price of 2.9 is not a very high probability i.e. for a high probability the market would be trading at 1.5 or less. Similarly alternative dates are not that distant from Oct-Dec 2018 i.e. Jan to March 2019 is trading at 5.

So whilst Oct-Dec 2018 has the most money bet on it, in reality given the ranges it is not even a coin toss where Betfair is concerned.

Next Tory Leader

Firstly there is no clear favorite to win a leadership contest. Instead there are a group of 4 similarly priced contenders all trading at near 8.5.

  • Dominic Raab
  • Sajid Javid
  • Boris Johnson
  • Michael Gove

And then comes a long list of contenders which includes Jacob Rees-Mogg at 15.5 and David Davis on 17.

So the betting markets are not giving any clear indication of who could take over from Theresa May, it's literally a case of placing chips on roulette table and waiting to see which number the ball falls on. Which is set against my forecast of the favourites being Jacob Rees-Mogg and Boris Johnson.

I'll let you draw your own conclusion ;)
