Boulton accused the House of Lords of spewing “hot air” over Britain’s exit strategy.
He said: “All I’m saying to you is the Lisbon Treaty says at the end of two years, Britain either leaves by agreement or without an agreement, that’s the choice and there just seems to be a lot of hot air coming out the Lords, you’re not going to be able to change that.”
Baroness Kramer said the Government should take “a more intelligent view” of its negotiations.

She said: “I disagree with you I think that there is plenty of scope, particularly for a government to take a more intelligent view of its negotiation, we’re all grown-ups in this.
“We need a solution at the end of this that works for us here in Britain and a solution that frankly works for the EU as well.”
She then called for another referendum on the UK’s exit from the EU.
“There needs to be a meaningful role for Parliament in all of this,” she said. “We’re in a parliamentary democracy no matter how much Government would like it to be a place where it simply decrees what will happen at the end.

Baroness Kramer bashed the Government over its handling of Brexit so far
“And for something that is this crucial and as I say, I would prefer for the Government to take the whole thing back to people and say ‘look, once you voted on speculation by two different camps, now we actually know the facts, now look at those facts and make a decision’.”
Boulton blasted the former MP and said the process was “not complicated” and that there were only two choices “either stay or either leave”.
“You may not like it but that’s how people voted,” he fired back.
“Isn’t that what people hate about the European Union, that people vote in referenda… and then they’re just asked to rethink about it because the unappointed bureaucrats, which I suppose would include the House of Lords, think that they ought to think otherwise.”
