Ministerial Cat-astrophe for Ken?
William Hill have slashed their odds for Ken Clarke to be the next Cabinet Minister to depart office from 8/1 to 4/1 second favourite in the wake of his ‘Cat-gate' run in with Theresa May - and offer 5/6 that he will no longer be a Cabinet Minister when the next General Election takes place.
‘Ken is used to becoming involved in controversies but it would not be a huge surprise if this one ended with his departure from the Cabinet' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
'We think he has come off second best in his skirmish with Theresa May who has strengthened her own position as a result.'
Who will leave the Cabinet next?.....13/8 Chris Huhne; 4/1 Ken Clarke; 4/1 Baroness Warsi; 7/1 Vince Cable; 10 Andrew Lansley; 25/1 Theresa May. Others on request.
