“Brexit is the new political football – like the NHS was – that is pushed around to prove points.”

David Dimbleby, who was hosting the debate in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, interjected to ask the woman if she would have the Government walk away from the negotiations now.

She said: “I don’t see no deal as a bad deal.”

Mrs May was in Salzburg this week for an EU summit in which she was desperately attempting to convince EU bosses to accept her Chequers deal.

Mr Tusk posted a photo of him and Mrs May looking at a cake stand with the caption: “A piece of cake, perhaps? Sorry, no cherries.”
