Nigel Farage Next Prime Minister Odds: Reform UK leader 25/1 to become PM after next general election

Nigel Farage is 25/1 to become the next UK Prime Minister after announcing he will stand in the upcoming general election for Reform UK.

UK Prime Minister After Election Odds


Mr Farage, who had previously said he would not stand in the 4th July vote to assist the campaign of his friend Donald Trump in the US election, performed a surprise U-turn after admitting he had a "terrible sense of guilt" for not putting himself forward to be a candidate.

The former UKIP chief became leader of the right-wing Reform UK on Monday and is standing to be an MP in Clacton, Essex.

A YouGov poll projected the Conservatives likely to win Clacton but that was before Mr Farage announced he was standing and the 60-year-old is now 3/10 to win the seat, which currently has a Conservative majority of 24,702.

It will be his eighth attempt at standing to be an MP, having been unsuccessful on seven previous occasions, most recently in South Thanet, Kent, in the 2015 general election.

Mr Farage said he intended to win "millions" more votes than UKIP had as he tries to make Reform UK the official opposition. Recent polls show that support for Reform UK runs at just over 10% nationally.

The latest YouGov poll shows Labour on course to win a historic landslide, with an expected 194-seat majority - bigger than the landslide Sir Tony Blair achieved in 1997.

Labour is on course to win 422 seats in the Commons, which would the highest number of seats of any party at any election since Stanley Baldwin won a Conservative majority of 208 in 1924.
