The business magnate has made no secret of his pro-Brexit views and he does not believe Britain should be fazed about the prospect of walking away from the negotiating table without a deal.
Asked about David Davis’ chances of securing a deal ahead of next month’s EU summit, Sir James told the Telegraph: “I don’t think they’ll do a deal.
“You can’t negotiate with that lot, as I’ve found out from 24 years of sitting on European committees with Dyson.
“No non-German company has ever won anything, and nobody has ever been able to block any suggestion from the German cartel. Never. They stifle innovation, the EU. And the European Court of Justice, well, that’s frankly crooked.”
James Dyson believes Brexit will prove to be a disaster for Europe
The founder of the Dyson company has acquired a huge amount of prime agricultural land and is now the owner of the largest farming business in the country and a greater private landowner than the Queen.
Sir James is now the biggest recipient of EU subsidies in the country but doesn’t believe Brexit will be a disaster for the UK.
He continued: “It’s an unusual time to get into farming, I will admit that, but we started purchasing land long before Brexit was a possibility.
“I do not see leaving the European Union as a disaster at all. It’s a very minor blip if you’re exporting to Europe; that’s it.

“It’s actually a disaster for Europe, because it’ll cost them a lot more to export to us.”
Last weekend, the 70-year-old inventor told the BBC’s Andrew Marr that despite the Brexit talks deadlock, Britain remains in a very strong position.
He said: “I don’t think it is the Government’s fault, I think the problem is the people we are negotiating with.
“I think they are demanding billions and billions to leave is quite outrageous. And demanding it before we have negotiated anything is outrageous.
“I would walk away, I think that is the only way to deal with them.
David Davis and Michel Barnier have failed to agree on some of the major Brexit sticking points
“I have been dealing with the EU and the EU countries for the last 25 years, on IEC standards and energy labels and all that kind of thing, there’s no way to deal with them, you have to walk away.
“If you walk away they’ll come to us because they want to export all their products to us. They will come back to us.
“We are in a very very strong position, incredibly strong position. We shouldn’t give them any money, we should just walk away and they will come to us.”
After the sixth round of Brexit talks concluded last week with Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator, suggesting talks could drag on into the next year if the bloc’s demands were not met.

The Frenchman gave the UK a two-week deadline to offer clarification on the financial settlement to get talks moving by December.
He said: “Only sufficient progress – that is to say sincere and real progress – on the three main key issues of these negotiations will enable the triggering of the second phase of our negotiation.”
David Davis said it was time for the European Union and the United Kingdom to both show some “flexibility, imagination and willingness” to deal with the deadlock in talks.
The European Union has reiterated it will not begin trade talks with Britain unless “sufficient progress” has been made in its key three issues of the Irish border, citizens rights and the divorce settlement.
