She told the panel: “I don’t think we should be paying any money to leave.
Suzanne Evans & David Davis blasted Clegg's gloomy Brexit forecast
You’ve got to believe in Britain, you’ve got to believe that we can actually do this
“We’ve got about £9billion invested in the European Investment Bank, we have contributed for decades to this organisation and they have the cheek to say they want money back?
“We’ve put a lot more in than many other countries.”
Ms Evans added: “We think it should all be done and dusted by the end of 2019, although I have to say if went to January 1 2020 I wouldn’t be too upset.”
Suzanne Evans & Nick Clegg clashed over the possibility of a Brexit bill
Her comments came following an audience member’s question about what a bad Brexit deal would look like, given the Prime Minister’s repeated claim that “no deal is better than a bad deal”.
Highlighting some of Ukip’s key hopes for the Brexit deal, Ms Evans said the UK must be free from the jurisdiction of the European courts, as well as restoring British control of our own borders and immigration.

'Geography counts' when forging trade deals, according to Nick Clegg
He added: “It’s the most sophisticated open market of its kind.
“Almost any outcome that David Davis and Theresa May come up with will involve less trade, and therefore less wealth and less prosperity, than that we have at the moment.”
He highlighted Britain’s close proximity to Europe as claimed the UK will not be able to create better trade deals with other nations because, in his words, “geography counts” – a phrase Ms Evans openly scoffed at.
Brexit Secretary David Davis said Mr Clegg was “fundamentally wrong”, highlighting how Britain has a far greater percentage of trade with the rest of the world than it does with Europe.
He added: “There is huge prize to be won, in enhancing our trade with the rest of the world whilst as far as we can, continuing frictionless free trade with Europe.”
“You’ve got to believe in Britain, you’ve got to believe that we can actually do this.”
Mr Davis said regaining control of “borders, laws and money” are essential in securing a good Brexit deal.
