The former defence minister said he did not believe public opinion was any different when it came to Brexit, and that EU negotiators have "basically put two fingers up at the UK".
Sir Gerald Howarth, a board member of Leave Means Leave, said that people who voted to leave the EU were "pretty confirmed in their view" as he told Tom Swarbrick that public opinion had not changed.
The former defence minister also said that people who voted to remain now accept the result of the referendum.
"I don't think public opinion has shifted at all," he said.
"Those who voted to leave, I think, are pretty confirmed in their view."
Sir Howarth said that Remainers "now take the view that it is better to get on with it, get a deal, and make our own way in the world."
The former minister also told Tom that the EU negotiators have "basically put two fingers up at the UK".
