Should she stay or should she go? Theresa May defiant but bookies predict 2018 exit for PM

Theresa May is odds-on to leave office as Prime Minister this year despite her insistence that she will see through the government’s under-fire Brexit plan.


The Conservative Party has been rocked by the resignation of several high-profile figures due to their objections to the agreed Brexit deal, and that has left May facing a possible vote of ‘no confidence’ from the Party.

Bookmaker William Hill has responded to the developments by going 4/6 about May leaving office before the end of 2018, but she remains defiant about her position and has insisted she plans to ‘see Brexit though’.

“Leadership is about taking the right decisions, not the easy ones,” she said.” As Prime Minister my job is to bring back a deal that delivers on the vote of the British people.

“That does that by ending free movement, all the things I raised in my statement, ending free movement, ensuring we are not sending vast annual sums to the EU any longer, ending the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice, but also protects jobs and protects people's livelihoods, protects our security, protects the Union of the United Kingdom.

“I believe this is a deal which does deliver that, which is in the national interest and am I going to see this through.

“I understand fully that there are some who are unhappy with those compromises but this deal delivers what people voted for and it is in the national interest. We can only secure it, if we unite behind the agreement reached in cabinet [on Wednesday].

“If we do not move forward with that agreement, nobody can know for sure the consequences that will follow. It will be to take a path of deep and grave uncertainty when the British people just want us to get on with it. They are looking to the Conservative Party to deliver.”

If May does end 2018 as Prime Minister the bookmakers believe she is merely delaying the inevitable, with William Hill going 7/4 that she is no longer in the roll at the end of 2019.

It is 12/1 that she goes in 2020, 20/1 that she leaves office in 2021 and 8/1 that she departs in 2022 or later.
