Quoted in today's The Northern Echo:
Professor Thom Brooks, a professor of law and government at Durham University and Labour supporter, said the migration deal would be a hard sell and 10 Downing Street would have a difficult time winning over a sceptical public.
"Cameron has done well to get any deal on the table of EU leaders. But his plans lack the clarity of message of his Eurosceptic opponents.
"While restricting EU migrant benefits is popular, that it can only be temporary, proportional and at the discretion of the EU is a complex proposal that may prove hard to build public enthusiasm for."
