Laurence Fox has put his money where his mouth is.
Despite failing to become London mayor, losing his deposit and even polling behind a YouTuber, the controversial former actor turned politician has shown that he fancies his chances at reaching even higher office and appears to be betting that he will become the next prime minister.
Writing on Twitter, he shared a screenshot of an odds website showing he had put £1 on him becoming the next PM, with odds of 500/1.
It is time for Lozza to be Prime Minister. 🙌🏼 https://t.co/rNoqE0qQF3
Meanwhile, Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Laurence Fox might fancy his chances of replacing Boris, but the latest betting figures tell a different story... in fact no one has backed him to be the next PM with Ladbrokes since November 2020.”
Ah Lozza. Triumph of hope over experience in action.
