Mr Lawson added: “The alternative is what I think Labour is proposing, they’re saying ‘no, no, no we wouldn’t be passive. We would have negotiating rights and we could say no to this.’
“What I’m saying is, if anything is a unicorn, that is sheer unicornism. It’s fantasy, fantasy politics. Diane, you are far too intelligent not to realise that.”
Ms Abbott did not take well to the claims, demanding her fellow panellist stop “tell me what Labour’s position is.”
The Hackney MP still defended her party’s Brexit policy, insisting British manufacturers would welcome the reassurance of a new customs union amid the uncertainty about the future.
