Cabinet Fox Hunt?
Liam Fox was the last Minister to leave the Cabinet but Fox could be followed by Hunt as bookmakers William Hill are quoting odds of 11/4 that Jeremy Hunt will depart his post before May 1, 2012, and have closed their book on him being the NEXT Minister to leave after a gamble saw his odds collapse from 50/1 to Even money.
'Mr Hunt is being pursued by opposition politicians determined to back him into a corner from which the only escape is loss of his job' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe, 'But he has yet to give is side of the story in full and it is doubtful that David Cameron will want to be pressurised into losing another Cabinet Minister, so we believe ,Mr Hunt has a decent chance of surviving this political witch-hunt'
Jeremy Hunt still in position on May 1, 2012 - 1/ 4 YES; 11/4 NO
Next Minister to depart the cabinet (temporarily suspended until after PMQs) - Evens Hunt; 6/4 Lansley; 7/1 May.
