Director of the Centre for European Reform, Charles Grant, tweeted: “About 10/12 EU states have some concerns about the ‘hard’ line taken by France, Germany and Commission, particularly on the narrow scope of the deal that they appear to want to offer the UK.” 

However, Mr Grant said these 12 countries “have different priorities and no leader” so France, Germany and the Commission could win the battle.
