Labour are now odds on to triumph at the next general election, with 2018 also the frontrunner to be the year that Britain next goes to the polls.
The resignations come on the back of Theresa May’s Brexit strategy which has divided the cabinet and makes the possibility of another snap election more likely.
Betway’s Alan Alger said: “They’re fleeing Cabinet like rats from a sinking ship and Theresa May is now just 1/3 to have her leadership challenged this year.
“Boris Johnson and David Davis’ departures demonstrate the instability at the very top of this government. We think there could be an election just around the corner and, with such big question marks over the unity of the Conservatives, Labour head into that as 5/6 favourites.
“It’s now just 2/1 for the UK to head to the polls before the year’s out and Sajid Javid is being backed to spearhead a leadership challenge at just 7/2.”
