A major bookmaker in the UK slashed its odds that embattled Prime Minister Boris Johnson will resign soon, with his Indian-origin Chancellor Rishi Sunak odds-on-favourite to step in at 10 Downing Street. Betfair says the clock seems to be ticking for 57-year-old Johnson, who is facing pressure not only from the Opposition but also from within his own Conservative Party to step down in the wake of revelations of a drinks party at Downing Street during the country’s first COVID-19 lockdown in May 2020. Conspicuously, Sunak was missing from the House of Commons chamber on Wednesday when his boss issued a “heartfelt apology” for the apparent breach of lockdown guidelines.
