May's deal gives most people most of what they want - eurosceptic MP

LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal gives most people most of what they want, eurosceptic Conservative lawmaker Andrew Murrison said on Tuesday.

Murrison said that May addressed tough questions head on in a meeting with Conservative members of parliament, and that the mood was generally positive.

The position of Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party, which props up May’s minority government, will be key in persuading wavering Conservatives, he said.

His colleague, Mark Francois, said he had found May’s arguments “wholly unconvincing”.
