Brexit deal a "very, very hard sell" - DUP deputy leader

It is going to be a "very, very hard sell" for British Prime Minister Theresa May to win parliamentary backing for her emerging Brexit deal, the deputy leader of the small Northern Irish party propping up her government said on Tuesday.

"The trick will be for Theresa May, can she satisfy everyone? It is going to be a very, very hard sell, I would have thought, but let's wait and see the actual detail," the Democratic Unionist Party's (DUP) Nigel Dodds told BBC Northern Ireland.

"The crucial issue is going to be what happens when it comes to cabinet and when it gets to parliament. We haven't seen any details, we'll see what happens. People know what our position is very clearly and we will judge whatever comes forward against the positions that have already been outlined."
