Former The Apprentice candidate Luisa Zissman thinks those who voted Leave in the European referendum should be made to suffer.

Speaking on talkRadio, Zissman left host Matthew Wright dumbfounded during their heated Brexit debate.

After asking her what we should do about Brexit, she replied: “I think we just have to suck it up now. A sick side of me wants no deal just to make the people suffer who voted to Leave.”

“But then everyone will suffer,” said Wright, to which Zissman responded: “I know everyone will but I’m kind of prepared to take that because I feel, like, you voted to Leave.”

She continued: “I don’t think we should ever have had a referendum.“I don’t think the public should have ever been given such a huge responsibility.

“I think I have more interaction with the general public than most people and my general opinion of them is quite low, I have to be honest.”

Wright burst out laughing and said: “How to go and make friends and influence people on the radio.”

Zissman added: “We elect a government and we put our trust in that government to make major decisions for us. So why did the government then go ‘we’re gonna sit it out on this one’?”

This came after Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn admitted he hasn’t read the full EU withdrawal manifesto.

Speaking to Sky News, Corbyn said: “There are 500 pages in this document, much of which are actually quite vague. Where’s the guarantee on environmental protections, consumer protections, worker’s rights and trade?

The Sky News presenter argued that there are some guarantees in the level playing field commitments, and then asked Corbyn if he’d actually read the whole document.

To which he replied: “I’ve read a lot of it, not every last word. I’ve read many summaries and many other analyses as I’m sure you have as well.”
