LONDON (Reuters) - The British government is in danger of collapse if the terms of an agreement on the country’s exit from the European Union are as reported, Conservative eurosceptic lawmaker Iain Duncan Smith said on Tuesday.

Asked if the government’s days were numbered, he referred to reports of the deal and said: “If this is the case, the answer is almost certainly, yes, because they’re in real trouble if they bring back something unacceptable to their party.”
