Ken Clarke backed to replace Boris Johnson at Prime Minister

Betway has seen a big move in the betting for Ken Clarke to take over as the UK’s Prime Minister, with the Father of the House backed into 6/1 from 10/1 following Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling.


Boris Johnson is now just 5/2 with Betway to call time on his short stint as Prime Minister as early as next month, while Clarke is being well-backed to step in and lead a government of national unity.

An immediate September resignation from the current PM is priced at 7/1 by the bookmaker, while anyone looking for a shorter price investment can take the 2/5 on him still being the country’s leader on New Year’s Day 2020.

“There’s always going to be plenty of drama with Boris Johnson at the helm but nobody quite expected to see the PM sitting in the dock of the Supreme Court,” Betway’s Alan Alger  told Bettingpro.com. “Maybe as equally surprising is that we’re now seeing a strong surge of interest for Ken Clarke to lead the country, with the Father of the House backed into 6/1 from 10/1.

“The unlawful verdict has cast a dark cloud over No.10 and we think there’s a fair chance that Boris will have to hold his hands up and step down. While a quick-fire September resignation seems unlikely at 7/1, the pressure is piling up on Boris and he’s just 5/2 to resign at some point between October and the end of the year.

“Boris has come through some sticky situations before and anyone rooting for the Tory leader can back him at 2/5 to still be in the job at the turn of the year.”
