Sir Graham Brady predicts a Brexit deal will be reached at eleventh hour
The former chairman of the 1922 Committee told Matt Frei on LBC that there's a long history of the EU concluding negotiations at the eleventh hour and there's no reason to think any differently in this scenario.
Brady said: "There is a mood of optimism, there certainly seemed to be from Leo Varadkar a greater willingness to engage properly in negotiations. I thought many of us thought this was always likely to happen.
"It is a long history, a long pattern that EU negotiations tend to conclude at the 11th hour. This may just be what we're seeing."
