Businessman Mr Habib told Express.co.uk: “For the EU it is desperate that we do not make a success of Brexit.

“That’s why I don’t think the EU will compromise much over these trade talks, the compromise is going to be at our end.

“For them it is not a matter of doing what is pragmatic and right for the economies of the EU. What they want is to punish the UK.”

The ex-MEP added there is “a lot going on” in the EU, with the bloc at a “pivotal crossroads”.

Mr Habib said: “It either goes for full integrated fiscal and monetary policy so that it can rescue Greece, , Spain, Portugal and France which are the countries that are really suffering economically at the moment.

“If it doesn’t go for full monetary and fiscal union, then the continued stress between the funders of the EU being the Netherlands, Germany and I think Ireland are now going to be net payers, the stress between the rich nations in the EU and the poorer nations is going to get bigger and bigger.

“You will see a financial collapse within the EU unless they can go for full union.

“And of course full union is something that I abhor and I think any individual who got their country’s interests at heart would abhor it.
