Lord Bilimoria, the founder of Cobra beer, claimed that Britons would soon change their mind and opt to stay in the European Union.
Speaking on Sky News, the Remainer described Brexit as a “complete mess” and said the UK should be discussing “no Brexit”.
He said: “Less than a year-and-a-half ago Britain was the fastest growing economy in the Europe, in the western world.
“We were doing really well. We had no problems about being suppressed by Europe, we were doing well out of Europe.
“Here we are in a situation where a whole year in Parliament, all we have been talking about is Brexit. We are talking about Brexit now, it’s a nonsense.
“What we should be talking about right now, not the soft Brexit or the hard Brexit, it’s actually ‘no Brexit’, because that is where I think it’s going to go.”
The Lord argued the public would soon come to realise that Britain has a very good deal with the EU currently.
He added: “In fact the public, it has got to come from the public themselves, they themselves are going to come to realise that the best option from a pragmatic point of view.
“How ever much the floors of Europe are and I am a great critic, I don’t like the Euro, I’m happy not to be [part] of the Schengen, we have got the best of both worlds.
“Actually we are much better off as a country from a citizens point of view, from Businesses point of view, from the economy’s point of view, to stay on.
“This is a complete mess and we are the laughing stock of the world and Europe.”
Lord Trimble was left seething by the Remainer’s comments as he reiterated that the UK was set on exiting the EU.
Mr Trimble insisted that if there was another referendum Britons would vote to leave by an even bigger majority.
He replied: “I’m sorry to say I’m actually quite disappointed with this position. Europe recognises that we are going to leave. That is the reality.
“I think you’ll find if it comes to a vote, the vote would be even bigger than it was but there is no need for that to happen.
“We are going to leave, it is a slow motion exercise. It will not speed up until we get well further down the line.
“The thing we have to make sure now is when we leave, we are in a position to take advantage of the situation.”
David Davis has vowed to “get down to work” as intense negotiations with the European Union continue in Brussels.
Mr Davis and the EU’s Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier refused to answer questions at a press conference before talks began on Monday morning.
Mr Barnier said reporters needed to “wait three days” because he would not be fielding any questions until Thursday.
The Frenchman said: “I look forward to our negotiations this week. We will now delve into the heart of the matter. We need to examine and compare our respective positions in order to make good progress.”
