The episode was filmed in Belfast in the Titanic building and Sinn Fein’s John O’Dowd compared Brexit to the ship.
He said: “I think it’s ironic that we’re sitting in the Titanic building which commemorates the mighty ship the Titanic which was unsinkable, but it sailed out the harbour and sunk – that is a bit like Brexit.
“Brexit is a disaster waiting to happen for the island of Ireland and let me be clear if the people England and Wales wish to leave the European Union then I genuinely wish them well.
“That is their decision, but their decision is driving this part of the island of Ireland out, it is going to damage almost the entire economy of the island of Ireland.”
Also appearing was co-creator of Yes Minister, Jonathan Lynn and former Labour contender Owen Smith who both say the UK should have another referendum.
Jonathan Lynn said that he thinks Brexit is a “looming disaster”.
He added: “I think what has got to happen is a second referendum when there are terms known so that people can actually vote on what is actually being proposed which has not yet happened.
“The referendum was 15 months ago, Article 50 was triggered six or seven months ago and we’ve still got a Government who haven’t got the faintest idea of what their plan was or is.”
Owen Smith challenged Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader on a promise that he would hold a second referendum if he elected.
He said the rest of the UK does not want a second vote, except from “maybe Northern Ireland”.
Mr Smith said: “Labour’s policy is not to have a second referendum.
“I said last summer that a second vote was the most democratic and the most sensible thing we could do to give people a further chance once we knew how this was going to play out.
“I think the last seven months have shown we didn’t know then and we still don’t know how it is going to play out. So I think my position intellectually coherent.
“I don’t see any appetite for a second referendum is the truth, I don’t see the country crying out for one.
“So, I expect Jonathan and I are voices in the wilderness, maybe in Northern Ireland there is a bit more interest in it.”
But a Scottish audience member rebutted the idea of a second vote.
He said: “Just a point that Mr O’Dowd said that he doesn’t care what the English voted for or what the Welsh voted for, I’d just like to remind him it was a United Kingdom referendum.
“It’s called democracy Mr O’Dowd, so please support it.”
