The Brexit warning comes as the Tories are accused of dividing Britain and Northern Ireland.
Ben Habib, a former MEP, said that since Northern Ireland was “left behind,” the UK has not really exited the EU.
Speaking on GB News, the CEO of First Property Group predicted that the UK will become even more polarised if the nation continues to drift away from the EU.
These events coincide with reports that House of Lords members want to stymie the government’s efforts to repeal hundreds of pieces of EU law.
On Wednesday night’s episode of GB News, Mr Habib said that Northern Ireland’s stance would prevent the widespread repeal of legislation.
The greater the gap between Northern Ireland and Great Britain, according to Mr Habib, the fewer benefits Northern Ireland will get compared to what we in Great Britain receive.
Rishi Sunak does not seem to “care that much,” he said, adding that “part of the problem he is facing is emphasising the Irish Sea border, the partician that the Conservative Party has created between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.”
Mr Habib did point out other laws that the UK may relax, such as those governing financial services, because no agreement was reached with the EU in that sector.
He said that leaving the EU without a deal may have even been preferable since, although financial services “can now do what they want,” the rest of the country cannot.
