The agreement Theresa May has negotiated with the European Union is only "marginally better" than leaving the EU on WTO rules, Alastair Campbell says.

"To be fair to her, she has tried her best, but she will not answer the question as to whether it'll make us richer or poorer because she knows it'll make us poorer."
