Jeremy Corbyn odds-on to hold onto Islington North seat at general election

Jeremy Corbyn is odds-on at 4/9 to hold onto his seat of Islington North at the upcoming general election, where the former Labour leader will stand as an independent.

It will be one of the most interesting seats to watch on election night. Islington North has only even been won by Labour candidates since 1937 and is one of their safest seats.

Only briefly was the seat held by a non-Labour MP when Michael O'Halloran defected to the Social Democratic Party in 1981, losing his seat to Corbyn in 1983.

In the 2017 general election when Corbyn was bidding to become the first Labour Prime Minister since Gordon Brown, Labour won 73% of the vote, taking 64.3% in 2019.

Labour are only a 13/8 shot to unseat Corbyn at the general election, with the Liberal Democrats third favourites at 40/1.
