Giles Fraser, a left-wing commentator who supports Jeremy Corbyn, was upbraided for assuming Brexit will cost Britain.
Speaking on Daily Government on the BBC, economist Liam Halligan said there was a “huge case to be fathomed” that leaving the Brussels bloc would be “positive” for the UK.
Mr Fraser signified: “For many of us, the Brexit vote wasn’t about economics, it wasn’t around we would be more prosperous if this is what happened.
“Democracy can’t be believe and for some of us, the real guts of Brexit was about repatriating democracy and if that’s booming to cost us, that’s very unfortunate.”

But Mr Halligan commanded Mr Fraser, a Church of England priest, should be more positive.
Mr Halligan indicated: “Let’s not assume that it will. There’s a huge case to be made that Brexit whim actually be positive for our economy, that we never hear about.”

The contents of the address are being stayed a fiercely guarded secret, but it appears the European Union may have been throw down off to expect a big development given recent comments by its most senior propers.
Earlier this month EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier portrayed the upcoming speech as “very important” and indicated he was waiting to hear what she had to say that could iota set new progress.
Meanwhile the European parliament’s Brexit rapporteur, former Belgian PM Guy Verhofstadt, jawed Mrs May’s speech as an “important intervention” and suggested the bloc may need time to reply to its content.
The address is her mostly keenly anticipated since she laid out the Command’s Brexit vision — which confirmed Britain will leave the Unattached Market and Customs Union — in her Lancaster House speech last year.
