Article 50 Trigger Odds Cut
BOOKMAKERS William Hill have slashed their odds for Article 50 to be triggered by the end of March 2017 from Even money (50%) to 8/11 (57%) following Theresa May's speech.
And Hills are 1/2 (66%) that the UK will officially be out of the EU during 2019; 5/2 that it won't happen before 2020; 5/1 that it will happen in 2018 or earlier.
'Theresa May made it clear that she intends to move the process of leaving the EU forward as quickl;y as possible' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
The Conservatives are 8/11 favourites to win the next General Election with an overall majority, with a Hung Parliament 13/8 and a Labour overall majority is 6/1.
Theresa May is 4/9 (69%) still to be PM on December 31, 2020, 13/8 not to.
ARTICLE 50 TRIGGERED BY END MARCH 2017?...8/11 yes; Evens no.
