After Southern rail strikes left commuters stranded, Post Office workers threatened branch closures before Christmas, cabin crew at British Airways voted for industrial action and even Argos drivers announced a disruptive strike before talking it out with their bosses, Paddy Power has now offered the odds on which group will strike next.

"Glorious post-Brexit Britain is doing its best to give those French strikers a run for their money," Paddy Power said.

The bookmaker said the country has been "brought to a standstill by strike action", and is now offering a way to make some cash on the next disruption.

Odds doctors will go on strike after a year of uncertainty for the NHS were at 6/5, the bookie said, while bus drivers were up next at odds of 7/2 followed by police at 4/1.

Least likely to head to the picket line were footballers, politicians and Santa's elves – all at 100/1.
