That infamous speech may yet spell doom for Theresa May

As pressure grows, bookmakers have revealed who they think will become next Tory leader

Damian Green has been installed as one of the front runners to take over from Theresa May as leader of the Conservative Party - should she quit or face a leadership challenge.

Pressure has intensified on the prime minister following her farcical conference speech in Manchester earlier this week.

And that has led to the bookmakers reviewing their odds on who her replacment could be.

While the clear favourites are Boris Johnson, Brexit secretary David Davis, and the rising Jacob Rees-Mogg, a number of Kent MPs are seen as worth a long shot.

The highest Kent MP is Ashford’s Damian Green, the first secretary of state, who, according to Ladbrokes, is 25-1 to replace his colleague.

Just behind him is defence minister Michael Fallon. The Sevenoaks MP is at odds of 33-1.

Tunbridge Wells’ Greg Clark is further out at 50-1 - as is Tonbridge MP Tom Tugendhat.

Sports minister Tracey Crouch is at 100-1 - the same odds as Nigel Farage and David Cameron.

Ladbrokes put former Labour leader Tony Blair at 200-1.
