The DUP's Brexit spokesman has claimed the Prime Minister has "united all sides" against her Brexit deal.

Appearing on the breakfast show, Sammy Wilson said "extreme Brexiteers" and "extreme Remainers" in the House of Commons had been brought together by how "terrible" the deal was.



"The Prime Minister has succeeded in uniting all sides against the deal that is so terrible, nobody can contemplate voting for it," he told Julia Hartley-Brewer.

"As far as this deal is concerned it will not fall or succeed on the basis of the votes of the DUP any longer because there's such a rebellion across the House of Commons, including the most extreme Brexiteers and the most extreme Remainers."


'No way, May!'

The Brexit deal will be voted on in the House of Commons on December 11, and Mr Wilson said it was likely it would be "turned down".

"They [the EU] have been able to push the UK around for the last year-and-a-half in negotiations, and I think they're hoping that by not blinking they'll be able to force Parliamentarians in the same way," he said.

"I can't see the Prime Minister convincing the Commons - she certainly won't convince our party."
