The Brexiteer MP dismissed concerns about no deal Brexit putting an end to all commercial links between the UK and the European Union, pointing out agreements have already been reached on specific sectors. The European Commission passed new regulation in March ensuring travel between the UK and the bloc is guaranteed past Brexit, with similar arrangements taken for the haulage sector. Speaking to talkRADIO, Mr Redwood said: "I don’t accept the wording of no deal Brexit if we leave on October 31 without signing the withdrawal agreement.
"Parliament is right to have turned it down three times running. There will be all sorts of agreements - there’s a custom agreement, a haulage agreement, an aviation agreement, a Government procurement agreement.
"There’ll be all sorts of agreements."
The Tory MP continued: "When they say they don’t want a no deal Brexit I can say, ‘you’re not going to get a no deal Brexit.’ Because there’s going to be lots of agreements.
"It is nonsense and it’s very misleading. I wish that were corrected more often.

"It’s very important to use language precisely when you are arguing a national case of senior politicians, and crashing out is just not true."
Mr Redwood added: "Neither side wants us to crash out – everybody knows there have to be ways for the ferries to sail and the planes to fly and the goods to pass through Dover and Calais.
"It’s great news that the authorities in both Dover and Calais keep reassuring us they have taken all the necessary steps so that the goods will flow after we have left.
"These people just carry on as if the whole world of commerce comes to an end
