Former London Mayor Boris Johnson, who led the Brexit efforts, was favored across the board at 4-7 odds to become the next British Prime Minister.  Johnson was actually born in Manhattan.

Time Magazine wrote:

The former Mayor is a well-known wit who once described the likelihood of his becoming Prime Minister as “about as good as the chances of finding Elvis [Presley] on Mars or my being reincarnated as an olive.” But this morning he struck a more sombre, statesmanlike tone, insisting that leaving the E.U. does not mean isolationism: “We cannot turn our backs on Europe, we are part of Europe.”

Theresa May also had relatively short odds of being named the next British Prime Minister at 5-2. 

May is a British Conservative Party politician who has been Home Secretary of the UK since 2010.

Michael Gore, the MP for Portsmouth, had the next shortest odds at 6-1.
