LEAVE.EU’S RICHARD TICE WRITES FOR BREITBART:

EU Deal Draft ‘Even Bigger Embarrassment Than Expected’

JACOB REES-MOGG: DEAL ‘LONG ON WORDS, SHORT ON SUBSTANCE’:

Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg says Downing Street trying to make “bricks out of straw” over the deal.

TORY MP COMPARES DEAL TO EXCREMENT:

Steve Baker has told Parliament the deal “looks funny and smells funny”. If you poke it, it is “soft on the inside”.

He finishes the analogy by telling the Europe Minister that selling the deal is like “polishing poo”.

MICHAEL FABRICANT TWEETS:

TORY MP BILL CASH HECKLES EUROPE MINISTER:

In parliament, Bill Cash calls the deal “pint sized”. Europe Minister David Liddington responds it will be “legally binding”. “No it won’t!” Cash shouts back.

AS CAMERON SPEAKS IN CHIPPENHAM, CORBYN BLASTS HIM FOR FAILING TO SHOW UP TO PARLIAMENT:

PM CLAIMS DEAL SHOWS ‘REAL PROGRESS’:

TORY MP JAMES CLEVERLY: ‘NO FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE’:

Another Conservative MP criticises the deal. James Cleverly, MP for Braintree, tells the Telegraph:

“EU leaders are really only negotiating at all because David Cameron secured our referendum and so any movement is welcome.

“But I doubt anyone would claim that what Donald Tusk has put forward represents a fundamental change in our relationship with the EU.”

LIAM FOX: PLANS ‘DO NOT COME CLOSE’ TO CAMERON’S PROMISES:

The former Defence Secretary is quoted by PA as saying:

The very limited set of demands from our government have been watered down by the EU in every area. The British people want to take back control and end the supremacy of EU law over our economy, our borders and our parliament.

“None of these changes even come close to the fundamental changes promised to the public. We are being asked to risk staying in the EU based on the back of empty promises from the EU that are not even backed up in Treaty. The only safe option is to Vote Leave.

ITV POLITICAL EDITOR:

CHANCELLOR SAYS ‘MORE WORK TO BE DONE’:

Speaking to the FSB conference in London, Chancellor George Osborne says the deal is “real progress” but there is “more work to be done” ahead of the referendum.

EVEN EU SUPPORTERS CRITICISE THE DEAL:

ANOTHER UNNAMED TORY MP STICKS THE KNIFE IN:

GOOD POINT FROM BBC POL ED:

LEAVE.EU RESPOND TO EURO ‘FUDGE’:

BORIS JOHNSON: DAVE’S DEAL NOT GOOD ENOUGH:

Guido reports that London Mayor Boris Johnson told LBC this morning:

“I think what would be better would be if we had a brake of our own, that we were willing to use. And that we were more willing to say, look, Britain is an independent sovereign country and we don’t agree with this particular piece of legislation or regulation and we want to stop it, and that’s what we should be able to do…

“… I think there is much, much more however that needs to be done.”

TORY MP BILL CASH: DEAL ‘I EXPECTED IT TO BE AS BAD AS IT IS’:

Conservative MP Bill Cash has told the Telegraph: “I expected it to be as bad as it is. This is a minimal package not the fundamental change in the relationship between the UK and the European Union which he proposed last year. There is no treaty change on offer. There is no guarantee that this will be legally binding and irreversible before the referendum.”

NEW STATESMAN POLITICAL EDITOR SAYS FEW EU MIGRANTS LIKELY TO BE DETERRED BY CHANGES:
