General Election 2019: the latest odds for the UK and Hertfordshire constituencies
The United Kingdom goes to the polls next month 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 1/4 to emerge as the country’s leader in the early hours of December 13.
Corbyn is less fancied at 5/2, while the leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson, who earlier this month made the audacious claim that she was “Britain’s next Prime Minister'' is an outsider, with odds of 33/1.
According to bookmakers, the most likely outcome of the General Election is a Conservative majority with odds currently floating at 1/2. A hung parliament is the second most probable outcome with odds of 7/4. A Labour majority is highly unlikely if odds are to be believed - that result is listed as 25/1.
The Conservative Party are comfortable favourites to hold onto Hemel Hempstead, but the fight for South West Hertfordshire should be a tighter affair.
David Gauke had his whip removed after he voted against the Conservative government of Boris Johnson. He is standing in South West Hertfordshire as an independent and is second favourite to reclaim the constituency with odds of 10/3. The Conservative party are 3/10 favourites, while Labour are 12/1 to claim the hotly contested seat.
Hemel Hempstead should be a comfortable hold for the Conservative Party. They're 1/25 to hold onto the constiuency, while Labour and the Liberal Democrats are both 14/1 to emerge victorious on December 13.
