THERESA May's grip on power is slipping by the day as her own MPs revolt over her handling of Brexit negotiations. After the PM's Brexit deal was trounced in Parliament, could another General Election really be on the cards? Here's the latest. Is another General Election on the cards? Downing Street is adamant an election won't happen but the PM may be forced to choose between calling one now or having one forced upon her later - if the Brexit deadlock continues. Theresa May is now looking to extend the UK's departure from the UK to June 30 - four months after the planned leaving date. MPs may be keen to avoid another election amid the Brexit chaos, though Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has made calls for a fresh call. May can no longer face a no confidence vote from her own party until December this year, after narrowly surviving a motion against her. What other attempts were made for a General Election? When May's "meaningful vote" failed to get through Parliament on January 15, Labour … [Read more...] about UK general election odds 2019 – what’s the latest from the bookies?
London (CNN)Theresa May is spending this weekend trying to plot a way out of the UK's Brexit stalemate after Parliament rejected her deal for a third time. With just two weeks left to the new deadline of April 12, she -- and the House of Commons -- are running out of options. There may be a fourth attempt to persuade lawmakers to back her deal, but this time set against a softer version of Brexit in order to force an affirmative decision one way or the other. But with the numbers deadlocked right now, and little sign that May can turn defeat into victory in a matter of days, the only way out of this -- and one that the PM is reportedly actively considering -- could be a fresh UK general election. Two years ago, the normally cautious Prime Minister played against type by calling a snap election three years earlier than necessary. She wanted to secure a bigger mandate for her own Brexit vision -- and ended up throwing away her Conservative majority. Every parliamentary defeat on her … [Read more...] about Now more than ever, Britain needs a general election
Just weeks after Boris Johnson took over as Prime Minister, bookies have slashed the odds that the UK will have a general election this year. As of 12 August, Coral makes it 4-11 odds that there will be a general election in 2019, making it the clear favourite for the next year that the UK will go to the polls. Coral spokesperson Harry Aitkenhead said: "This is the shortest odds we have had for a General Election to take place this year and it now seems as though November is beginning to look nailed on to be the time we head to the polls once again." Odds are 3-1 that the next general election will be in 2020, or 16-1 that it will be in 2022 or later. Odds are 4-7 that the Conservative Party will win the most seats at the next general election, or 5-2 for Labour . It's 10-1 that the Lib Dems will win the most seats, 12-1 for the Brexit Party , or 250-1 for the Green Party. Boris Johnson, who currently has a working majority of just one, has ruled out calling a general election … [Read more...] about Bookies slash odds on a 2019 general election
A snap general election could be called this year, if the bookies odds are anything to go by. Bookmakers have slashed the odds on an election being called in 2018 following the resignation of two Tory ministers within 24 hours. Boris Johnson has sensationally resigned as Foreign Secretary, throwing Theresa May's Government into further turmoil after the departure of David Davis as Brexit Secretary. The resignations of the two Cabinet "big beasts" comes just days after Mrs May secured senior ministers' agreement at Chequers for a Brexit plan about which both men had expressed reservations. Mr Davis was first to go, announcing his exit just before midnight on Sunday. Bookmaker Betfred reduced its odds of an election from an unlikely 6-1 on Wednesday to an entirely possible 11-4 by Monday afternoon. Should voters be sent to the polls for the third time in four years, the result would probably be much the same as last time out: no overall majority remains the most likely outcome with odds … [Read more...] about General election odds slashed as Boris quits as Foreign Secretary
