Bookmakers today shed light on an election devoid of opposition, pricing the Tories 1/7 to win an overall majority in June.

With Labour significantly behind in the polls, the UK’s opposition party is 14/1 to win the General Election, with “no majority” 13/2.

The Conservatives are 1/10 to win the most seats, with Labour priced 7/1 and Lib Dems priced at 20/1.

 Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “Following Theresa May’s announcement this morning that the UK will hold a snap election on 8 June, we predict an easy victory for the Conservative Party and go 1/7 on them remaining in Office.
