Politics – betting and odds

Betting on political events has become increasingly popular in recent years, with the variety of markets including domestic and global elections.

Whether it is the leader of a British political party, the next country to leave the EU (below) or who will be the next prime minister, the bookmakers offer odds on them all.

Last year the EU Referendum debate dominated the UK media, with both the 'brexit' and 'remain' campaigns battling it out with the statisticians.

This year all eyes were on the surprise general election called by Theresa May for June 8. But after a hung parliament result (see video), there could very well be another general election soon.

Already we have had the French presidential elections, while in the UK Greater Manchester voted for its first directly-elected mayor.

Regular bets include the next party leaders – LabourConservative and Liberal Democrats. Use the navigation options above to choose your market.
