McDonnell quits but Diane odds have widened

John McDonnell has left the Labour leadership contest to give Diane Abbott a chance of gaining 22 more votes by this afternoon.

With a number of MPs yet to decide, Diane's chances look better for getting through this first round, but bookies odds on her overall leadership bid seem to have widened today to 50 to 1 from 33 to 1 yesterday (updated now without McDonnell).
