While on the Jeremy Vine Show, Brexit supporter Carole Malone and Remainer Femi Oluwole engaged in a tense row. Mr Oluwole continued to argue against leaving the EU and claimed UK businesses would suffer from a no deal Brexit. Ms Malone retorted it was impossible for businesses to prepare for the coronavirus pandemic but more delay would cause more issues.

Mr Oluwole said: “Let’s do some basic maths here.

“If we have a no deal Brexit, we damage trade with 27 of our closest partners.

“From the EU’s perspective that is trade with one of their closest partners.

“No deal is damaging to our trade here.”

The Remainer then reflected on the impact coronavirus would have on businesses as they prepare for Brexit and the end of the furlough scheme.

He said: “It is the stakes that are the issue here.

“We are about to end furlough on the 31st of October and therefore many businesses will be thinking can we afford to bring back our staff.

“If you look at the head of UK engineering, Make UK, they have said in order to bring back staff it is going to depend on frictionless trade at the borders.”

Ms Malone attempted to interject that no business was able to prepare for coronavirus.

Mr Oluwole shouted her down and said: “I thought you knew what you were voting for, that is the point.

“If you weaken a country you make it more vulnerable to anything that comes along.

Ms Malone sternly replied “nonsense” to Mr Oluwole’s comments before Mr Vine intervened.

Mr Vine concluded by stating he was left confused at what the future would entail as some MPs have said Thursday is the last day to strike a trade deal.

This was in reference to the Brexit ultimatum made by the Prime Minister to put pressure on the EU.

With the end of the transition period, at the end of the year, looming, the likelihood of a no deal Brexit has been increasing, according to some commentators.

Last month, the Prime Minister gave the EU until October 15 to secure a post-Brexit trade deal with the UK, in order to make sure both parliaments have time to ratify an agreement before the end of the transition period.

Mr Barnier told EU ambassadors the talks will likely continue past Thursday’s deadline and does not believe the UK will pull out of the talks if an agreement is not reached.
