LONDON (Reuters) - Pro-Brexit former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith said he was reserving judgment on the last-minute deal struck by Britain and the European Union on Thursday until he understood why Northern Ireland’s DUP opposed it.
“There are some issues I have already spotted in the political declaration,” he said. “I am reserving my position on this.
“There are some issues, for example if the DUP aren’t backing it - what’s their reasons for not backing it,” he said, adding that questions remained about the concept of consent.
