“It actually confirms my view. I voted Leave and nothing I have seen since has persuaded me that was a bad decision.“If this is the way the European Union and our European partners are going to try and dictate terms to the UK frankly we’re better off out.”

However, Brussels appears to have made a drastic climbdown from Mr Tusk’s Brexit ultimate after Mrs May held talks with the EU Council President in Sweden.

Mr Tusk extended the EU’s two-week deadline, however, insisted Britain will still need to make concessions on money and Ireland for trade talks to begin before Christmas.He said “good progress” had been made on citizens’ rights but not in the other key areas – the Irish border and divorce bill.

“We will be ready to move onto the second phase in December but, in order to do so, we need to see more progress from the UK side,” Mr Tusk said.

Speaking after the talks, Mrs May said there was “more work to be done” ahead of the next full EU summit next month.
