Betfair: Jo Swinsson 4/9 to become new Lib Dems leader

16 Jun 2017

Betfair has opened the politcs market for ‘Next Liberal Democrat Leader’ after Tim Farron’s unexpected resignation on 14th of June.

In the section Betfair politics, you can bet on the next leader of the party and Jo Swinson,

MP for East Dunbartonshire, is a strong favourite at 4/9 odds.

Lib Dems increased their Parliamentary representation to 12 seats, however, the expectations in the 2017 UK General Elections were thought to be much higher.

Farron will lead the party until the Parliamentary Recess (20 July). The new leader will be announced by the Parliament’s opening on September.

If Jo Swinson wins the “race” she will become the first female leader of the Liberal Democrats party during their 80 years of history.

Norman Lamb (4/1), Ed Davey (5/1) and Vince Cable (6/1) follow as close favourites to lead the Lib Dems.

Betfair Politics Spokesperson, Katie Baylis commented on the market: “After winning back her Dunbartonshire East seat last week, Jo Swinson was tipped to become deputy leader of the Lib Dems, but Tim Farron’s shock resignation has seen her go straight in as favourite for the top job in the party. Despite high hopes for a big Lib Dem comeback in the Election, they didn’t do nearly as well as they would have liked, with Farron himself enduring a difficult campaign. You would imagine they will be looking for a fresh new approach, which could be why Swinson leads the betting ahead of older-hands such as Vince Cable and Norman Lamb.”
