That could be as early as May if her deal is signed off by MPs in the coming days. So what are the bookies odds?MICHAEL GOVE 4/1 The Environment Secretary has achieved a remarkable turnaround since knifing Boris Johnson during the 2016 leadership contest. His support among party members dropped through the floor and it seemed his chances were gone for ever. But Mr Gove, who led the Leave campaign in the EU referendum, has rebranded himself as an ecowarrior as Environment Secretary. Betfair Spokesperson Katie Baylis said this evening: “Following the news that Theresa May will quit once a deal is delivered, Betfair Exchange makes Michael Gove the 4/1 favourite to take over as PM once she goes, with Boris Johnson at 6/1. “Jeremy Hunt is at 13/2 with his odds shortening from … [Read more...] about Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt and Michael Gove are favourite to replace Theresa May as she FINALLY says she’ll quit

BORIS Johnson has been one of the most vocal voices during the Brexit process and some have tipped him to become the next Prime Minister. We explain if he will run for prime minister and what has been said about it. Will Boris Johnson run for prime minister? The Brexiteer has not categorically said himself if would run for the top job. On December 8, 2018 Andrew Marr asked if Boris would run for prime minister.

THERESA May has seen off a gruelling challenge after dozens of MPs expressed a vote of no confidence in her leadership. But with over a third of her party wanting to boot out, she is still on treacherously thin ice. Come what May, who would replace her? Here are the latest odds. What are the odds on the next Prime Minister? Under parliamentary rules, the result of the vote of no confidence means Mrs May will go unchallenged by her own party for the next year. But she has strongly hinted that she will step down before her term officially ends in 2022. But Mrs May also seems determined that she will try to see Brexit through before resigning. Her scrappy success means she is safe from another such challenge from her own benches for the next year. This week, MPs will vote on Theresa May's Brexit deal, and if it doesn't pass her position will appear weak. But the weaker-than-expected result of the vote has bolstered the likelihood of Labour going for a vote of no confidence in the … [Read more...] about Who will be the next PM if Theresa May resigns before the next election – from Jacob Rees-Mogg to Boris Johnson and Amber Rudd
