Conservative leadership: Betting odds & poll predictions
As we head into the final straight of the Conservative Leadership contest, Theresa May is strong favourite to take over from David Cameron as Prime Minister.
May received 199 votes in the second ballot which is well over half the number of Tory MP’s that voted. However it isn’t that simple. In the final round , it is not the MP’s that decide but the Tory membership.
Could we have a similar situation to Labour where the membership and the Parliamentary Party are not in synch? The early indications are strongly that we will not.
