Now May must communicate and campaign
Theresa May and the European Union have shown they both want a 'good' agreement over UK withdrawal. The deal struck on 8 December after much tortuous negotiation underlines how all sides are willing and able to strike compromises furthering mutual interests. But problems remain. Many stem from within the UK, where Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are not disposed to compromise in the same way. Much will depend on May's communicative and campaigning skills.
