The presenter talked with Charles Grant, director of the Centre for European Reform and Henry Newman from Open Europe over the figure Britain must pay when the UK leaves the European Union.
Speaking on Sunday Politics, the host claimed that Theresa May would find it very difficult in the future if she is forced to pay a £30billion bill to the EU.
Mr Grant suggested that Brussels is expecting a figure up to the amount of £60billion before admitting that it could be considerably lower.
However, host Neil exploded over the huge amounts of money that Britain could be forced to pay as a result of Brexit.
Andrew Neil and Charles Grant discussed how Theresa May will handle the £30billion Brexit bill
He said: “Am I missing something here? If she ends up settling for a bill of about £30billion, which I think would be politically, no matter how popular she is, politically very difficult for her.
“It does kill any idea that there is a Brexit dividend for Britain.”
Mr Grant explained how this issue could potentially crash Brexit talks and leave the UK in a very dangerous position.
He said: “Well some of what some of the senior officials in London and also Brussels are very worried that this particular issue could crash the whole talks.

It may be politically impossible for Theresa May to accept a Brexit bill of £30billion
Charles Grant, director of the Centre for European Reform
“Because it may be politically impossible for Theresa May to accept a Brexit bill of £30billion.
“If there is no deal and we leave the EU without a settlement then there is massive legal uncertainty.
“If Article 50 ended in two years, no deal, what contract law applies, can aeroplanes take off from Heathrow? Nobody knows what legal rights you have if you’re an EU citizen living in Britain or visa-versa.”
The director added that Brussels believes this puts the EU in a very strong position as the UK prepares to leave.

Issued by the Supreme Court of (top row, from the left) Lord Neuberger, Lord Mance, Lord Kerr, Lord Sumption, (bottom row, from the left) Lady Hale, Lord Clarke, Lord Wilson and Lord Hodge, who agreed with the majority decision that the Government could not trigger Article 50 without Parliamentary approval.
He added: “If there is no deal at the end of two years then we crash out, disastrous for the British economy, bad for the European economy.
“Therefore they think they have all the cards to play. And they are very worried that if it is mishandled domestically in Britain then we will have a crash.”
The host was left furious over the potential issues that could come if the Prime Minister does not secure a good deal with the European Union.
He finished: “We will wait a long time for that £350million a week or whatever it was that was meant to come from Brussels to spend on the NHS, that’s not going to happen for the next five, six, seven years.”
