On Wednesday evening, Mr Clarke became the only Tory MP to try and thwart Brexit as he voted against the Government’s EU bill.
Theresa May’s EU exit plan cleared its first Parliamentary hurdle with a majority of 498 MPs honouring the EU referendum result, while 114 MPs decision to vote against the largest democratic exercise in British history.
Defending his decision ignore the people’s demand for freedom from the red-tape obsessed bloc, Mr Clarke told LBC he would have been laughed at had he voted with the rest of his party.
The EU-loving Tory said: "I think my views are so well known, and for 50 years I've not only been pro-EU, pro-European, but really quite actively involved in Britain's involvement with the steadily growing European Union.

"That Eurosceptics…would have been utterly amazed if I'd cast a vote in favour of Britain leaving the European Union. I would have been laughed at."
The barmy excuse for ignoring the will of the British people came after he directly after the vote in the House of Commons declared his fight against Brexit was not over.
The ardent Remainer said: “The battle has only just started. We live in a very unreal, silly world since the rather startling result of the referendum.”
“There are plenty of members of the house who agree with me about the disastrous nature of the decision that has been taken – but they had all signed up to the referendum with nobody guessing that it might go that way.”

He also accused the Government of not having credible plan in place to divorce Britain from the EU ahead of the forthcoming negotiations.
Mr Clarke raged: “I think Mr [Nigel] Farage was as surprised as Mr [David] Cameron when the result came through and we are on a voyage of discovery now with a sketchy outlined negotiating position but with nobody with the first idea with what the real negations are going to be like.”
Following the landmark vote which gave Mrs May the power to start the process of taking Britain out of the European Union, David Davis on Thursday unveiled the Government’s Brexit White Paper.
The Brexit Secretary said the paper describes the view of what the new partnership with Brussels will look like.
He told the House of Commons there were 12 objectives which will “guide the Government in fulfilling the democratic will of the people”.
Speaking in the Commons, he said: "This document sets out our plan for the strong new partnership we want to build with the EU.
"Whatever the outcome of our negotiations, we will seek a more open, outward-looking, confident and fairer UK, which works for all."
Taking control of the country's laws, protecting workers' rights, ensuring free trade with European markets and strengthening the UK were among the aims set out in the document.

It also promised that controlling immigration would be a key priority for the Government after leaving the EU.
"We will create an immigration system that allows us to control numbers and encourage the brightest and the best to come to this country," the white paper said.
The "sheer volume" of the influx from other EU countries had "given rise to public concern about pressure on public services", the document added.
During the White Paper speech, Mr Davis caused raucous laughter as he mistakenly said Brexit had already happened.
