The ex-minister insisted Brexiteers had “no cause for regrets” and the nation had a prosperous future ahead as “our destiny is in our hands”.

He told a UK in a Changing Europe event: “The view that Brexit is hitting us from an economic and trade perspective is generated by those with an axe to grind.

“The UK has grown at much the same pace as other G7 countries and our goods exports to the EU are at the highest level ever.”

The solutions to any trade niggles would be found by going forward not backwards towards rejoining the bloc, he said.

But Brussels is continuing to “hassle and lecture us” and Brexit is not yet complete, he admitted.

Downing Street insisted Brits would “see the benefits” of leaving as Britain striked more trade deals with countries around the world, controlling our tariffs and economy.

Last night billionaire inventor Sir James Dyson said Brexit will “work out” – as he urged ministers to diverge and pull away from European courts.

He told Times Radio: “I really do think it will work out… we’re independent, we’re on our own, we can control our own destiny.

“We just have to be patient about it – it’s about a change of attitude.”

And he said he did not think the EU “would be crazy enough to have a trade war” over the controversial Northern Ireland protocol.
