UK Politics: Who is next in line for the Labour Party?



British politics continues on its own journey after Brexit, but there are still many important decisions to be made in the near future. 

Such issues include keeping one eye on a successor for the current Prime Minister, but also who will be in charge of the Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat parties in the coming months.

The race for the next Labour leader is perhaps the most intriguing topic in UK politics right now. There is a brief list of potential candidates that could replace Jeremy Corbyn this year.

They include Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long Bailey, Lisa Nandy and Emily Thornberry. Starmer is currently favourite to take over from Corbyn, who lost out to Conservative leader Boris Johnson in the most recent general election in December 2019.

Starmer is 1/5 to become the next permanent Labour party leader.

Rebecca Long Bailey is currently 5/1, with Lisa Nandy and Emily Thornberry available at 10/1 and 50/1 respectively.

And while Prime Minister Johnson finds himself in charge of the country in an interesting time for the country, his position remains under pressure.

His role does, however, seem safe for the immediate future. It’s currently 1/7 for Johnson to be replaced as Prime Minister in 2022 or later. It’s 5/1 for him to be out of the job in 2021, and 12/1 for him to lose out at some stage throughout this year.

But there is still a lot of talk surrounding the next permanent leader of his party. There is a long list of potential suitors, all of whom will be vying for one of the most powerful seats in UK politics. 

Sajid David is the current favourite to take over from Johnson. He can be backed at 10/1, with Rory Stewart available at 12/1. 

Jeremy Hunt, Dominic Raab, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Penny Mordaunt are also all available at 12/1.

Other potential successors include Priti Patel and Rishi Sunak at 14/1. Tom Tugendhat, Michael Gove, James Cleverly and Amber Rudd are all currently 16/1.

It’s 20/1 for Johnny Mercer to become the next leader of the Tory party, and 22/1 for Gavin Williamson. 

Liz Truss, Matt Hancock and Ruth Davidson are all 25/1.

And finally, there is also the important matter of the next permanent Liberal Democrat leader. The party will be looking to increase support in the coming months. But they will need the right person in charge to be able to do that.

Ed Davey is currently favourite at 4/7 to be their next permanent leader. Also in the running are Layla Moran and Daisy Cooper at 7/4 and 5/1 respectively.

Christine Jardine is currently 14/1, while Wera Hobhouse and Alistair Carmichael are available at 20/1 and 25/1 respectively.
