Boris Johnson is more likely to be next prime minister than you are of getting Glastonbury tickets

Boris Johnson is more likely to be next prime minister than you are of getting Glastonbury tickets

Well, that's depressing.

If have yet to get your hands on Glasto tickets this week and were looking for a bit of a pick-me-up, you'll find no such thing here.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but, odds are that ex-Conservative leader Boris Johnson has a better chance of being re-elected as Prime Minister than you do at getting Glastonbury tickets this year.

The first batch of Glastonbury tickets went on sale earlier this week, selling out in just under half an hour.

With the general admission tickets set to drop on Sunday (November 6), it sounds like the chances of being lucky enough to snag them are pretty slim.

In fact, according to the Online Betting Guide (OLBG), you have around a 7.7 percent (or 12/1) chance of getting a ticket to the 2023 festival.

That doesn't sound promising, does it.

Especially not when you find out that, according to Ladbrokes, Boris Johnson has a 14.29 percent chance of becoming the next prime minister.

Yes, that's right. The former Tory leader who resigned just months ago is the 6/1 favourite to take over as prime minister after new leader Rishi Sunak leaves.

Plus, the chances of Rishi Sunak leaving early are pretty high too, with 3/1 odds that he'll be replaced as soon as next year, and 5/4 odds that he'll be out of Number 10 in 2025 or later.

So, not as soon as Liz Truss, but still earlier than scheduled.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Recent history suggests the future doesn’t exactly look bright for Rishi in Number 10, and while he’s a shoo-in to outlast Liz Truss, the odds say he could well be sent packing in the New Year."

And if Rishi does make an early exit, Boris is at the top of the leaderboard as his replacement - despite everything.

Ah, what a time to be alive.

Boris is followed by Kemi Badenoch (7/1), Penny Mordaunt (8/1), and Sajid Javid (10/1).

Best of luck with those odds.

Thousands of music fans were left devastated on Thursday when they failed to get coach tickets for next year's Glastonbury festival.

According to organisers, the tickets sold out in just 23 minutes.

Standard tickets are set to go on sale on Sunday 6 November at 9am.

If you are lucky enough to get to the top of the queue, you'll be expected to fork out £50 as a deposit for the £335 ticket.

If you're just as cynical of the government as I am, then maybe these odds won't actually deter you.

But, if you ask me, you probably shouldn't bother trying to get tickets tomorrow. At least, not until I get mine.
