General Election 2019: the latest odds for the UK and Berwick-upon-Tweed constituency
The United Kingdom goes to the polls on Thursday for the country’s third General Election in four years.
Current Prime Minister Boris Johnson and leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn are the chief contenders to enter Number 10, with the leader of the Conservatives fancied by the bookies at 1/6 to emerge as the country’s leader in the early hours of December 13.
Corbyn is less fancied at 7/2, while the leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson, who made the audacious claim that she was “Britain’s next Prime Minister'' is an outsider, with odds of 50/1.
According to bookmakers, the most likely outcome of the General Election is a Conservative majority with odds currently floating at 1/4. A hung parliament is the second most probable outcome with odds of 10/3. A Labour majority is highly unlikely if odds are to be believed - that result is listed as 25/1.
The Conservatives comfortably clinched Berwick-upon-Tweed at the 2017 General Election with a majority of 11,781 and are fancied to retain the seat this December. They’re backed with odds of 1/25.
The Liberal Democrats will be targeting the seat and they are backed with modest odds of 10/1. Labour are a distant third-favourite and hold odds of 14/1.
