Using his trademark colorful language with a reference to toilet paper, he went on to warn against "some bog roll Brexit - soft, yielding and seemingly infinitely long".

The demonstration was organized by the People's Vote Campaign, a pro-EU organization that is campaigning for a second referendum on the U.K.'s relationship with the EU.

On Saturday, tens of thousands of anti-Brexit protesters marched in London to demand a new referendum on leaving the EU.

The survey confirmed that a Free Trade Agreement with the United Kingdom is more popular within the EU27 business community than a Customs Union, with 67 per cent of respondents deeming a FTA as being important to their business, versus 45% for the Customs Union.

"We are in a critical moment in the Brexit discussions".

Brexiteers in Theresa May's government have warned they would be taking an uncompromising approach to European Union withdrawal as thousands marched in London yesterday in protest at Brexit.

He suggested instead getting closer to European states to work out what a "realistic, pragmatic Brexit is, which works for both sides".

Hunt told the BBC that the warnings are undermining the UK's negotiating position with the EU.

The UK government has said it will act to allow European firms to service financial contracts in Britain after Brexit, although no such reciprocal steps have been taken as yet by European authorities.

"I don't want to talk in apocalyptic terms", said Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

Katherine Bennett, the Senior Vice President of Airbus U.K., told members of Parliament in November that "every single site in Airbus, whether it's in the European Union or outside the European Union, has to compete for piece of investment".

Victoria Lewis, 55, a math teacher from Brighton who wore a blue T-shirt that read "Citizen of Europe", came out to rally "because I have three children and they need to be part of Europe".

Mr Williams said: "In total, Airbus generates 100,000 jobs in the UK".

Writing in the Sun, Mr Johnson said the public were keen to get on with breaking away from Brussels.

"The vast, vast majority of people, whether they are Leavers or Remainers, just want us to get on and come out this awful European Union super-state", Conservative minister Pete Bone said.

"They don't want some sort of hopeless compromise, some perpetual push me-pull you arrangement in which we stay half-in and half-out in a political no man's land".

As Remainers marched in London, around 8,000 Scottish independence supporters also made their annual pilgrimage to Bannockburn.

Anti-Brexit campaigners who want the public to have the final say on the UK's departure will take to the streets later on Saturday to argue it is "not a done deal".
