How long will Keir Starmer be Labour leader for?

There is little - if anything - to suggest Labour are considering replacing Sir Keir Starmer as party leader, but betting on his future, as well as whether he will ever become prime minister, is well underway, with a number of bookmakers opening several Starmer-related markets.

Sir Keir was confirmed as the Labour Party leader earlier this year. Following Labour's heavy loss at the 2019 general election, the party held a leadership election to find a replacement to Jeremy Corbyn. In April 2020, Starmer beat Rebecca Long-Bailey and Lisa Nandy, taking 56.2% of the vote in the first round to be confirmed as Labour leader.

The Leader of the Opposition has enjoyed success in the polls in recent weeks and as a result is odds-on with bookmakers William Hill to remain Labour leader until 2025 or later (8/11 at time of writing).

Sir Keir is also the bookmakers' favourite in the latest Next Prime Minister markets.

Will Keir Starmer be the next Prime Minister?

Bookmakers have cut the odds on Boris Johnson being replaced as PM as early as this year as his approval ratings continue to fall amid his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, and as noted, Sir Keir is the bookies' favourite in the latest Next Prime Minister betting odds.

The next general election is not scheduled to be held until May 2024 in line with the Fixed-term Parliaments Act, and a lot can happen between now and then - not just for concerning Labour and Sir Keir, but also the Conservatives and Mr Johnson.
