James O’Brien Scolds Caller Who Says Microchipping People Could Solve Irish Border

James O’Brien Scolds Caller Who Says Microchipping People Could Solve Irish Border. This caller suggested Irish people should be microchipped as one possible solution to the Brexit border issue - and James O’Brien’s reaction was savage. Proposals for the future of the Irish border post-Brexit were “annihilated” by EU officials, diplomats from the bloc are said to have told The Telegraph. It's claimed Brussels officials delivered a “detailed and forensic rebuttal” of the UK’s proposals - saying none of them would work. Peter in Bury came up with his own and rather bizarre proposals to solve the issue. He told James: “They only other solution is if that’s the case is you microchip. “So you microchip the population so you know who is in there.” After leaving James in utter disbelief, Peter came up with another idea. “Give a referendum to the whole of Ireland, ‘do you want to come together as one nation’ and I’d also throw in the question: 'Would you like to be dual nationality with the UK and Irish?” At this point James just had to interject, and his reaction with brutal. “What are you talking about Peter?” James thundered.

This Couple's Arrest Is One Of The Most Ridiculous Ever Seen
 
02:35
This Couple's Arrest Is One Of The Most Ridiculous Ever Seen. A video has been released of one of the most eventful arrests ever seen from a convenience store in Canada. 29-year-old Brittany Burke and Richard Pariseau, 28, were arrested by officers in the Reddi Mart in Edmonton. But what happened during the arrest started off comic and got odder and odder throughout. Pariseau resisted arrest and was tasered by the officer, but still got up to try to escape, while Burke attempted to hide. But what followed that needs to be seen to be believed. Pariseau faces 11 charges, including using a stolen credit card, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer, while Burke has been charged with obstructing a police officer, failure to comply with an undertaking and mischief.

James O'Brien Says This Is One Of The Finest Calls He Has Ever Had
 
05:35
James O'Brien Says This Is One Of The Finest Calls He Has Ever Had. James O'Brien believes that a teenager who just completed a GCSE exam gave the "best analysis" of the education system he's heard in a decade. A teenager who called James O'Brien after finishing an exam was one of James' "finest callers" of all time. Nick, who is currently sitting his GCSE's, said gave a brilliant analysis of the education system and how GCSE's compare with the predecessor O Levels. "I can completely sympathise with the extreme stress students suffer," he said. "And this is intrinsic to Michael Gove's 2014 reform which has made the GCSE's at the moment crippling hard. "The 2017 pass mark for a maths GCSE exam was 17%." "Shut up!" James replied. Nick continued: "All he's done is wasted tax payer's money in order to reform GCSEs, and once he's done that deflated the grade boundaries. "He's between a rock and a hard place: he can't inflate the grade boundaries because you'd have more students retaking their math GCSE, but if he deflates them he gets criticised for having ridiculously low grade boundaries. "So why not keep the old system in place?" James was gobsmacked: "I'm reluctant to speak, you're amazing." "That's the best analysis I've heard in 10 years," he said. But Nick had more to say. He said: "When you sat your O Levels, you would have about 8 or 9 O Levels. "Now students are sitting 10 or 11 GCSEs at the same difficulty. "The problem is you have content just as hard but even more subjects going on." James asked: "How many papers will you ave sat by the end of this summer?" The teenager revealed that he will have taken 23 exams, but stunned James by saying that his friend will have sat an additional seven. "I've had exams every day since the 15th May, albeit a gap of a week during half term," Nick said. "I think this a testament to Michael Gove's judgement, and if he does what he's done to the education system to the environment, god help us all." At the end of the call, James described the call as "quite a moment". He said: "It's lads like that who give me hope. "Look at the mess that we're handing onto them as a result of all this ludicrous tribalism and absurdity, and taking offence at people... "These lads and ladies just cut through and get on with it, no wonder they're all stressed."

Brexiteer Loving Trump’s Work Can’t Tell James O’Brien Why He’s Loving Trump’s Work
 
03:07
Brexiteer Loving Trump’s Work Can’t Tell James O’Brien Why He’s Loving Trump’s Work. This Brexiteer proudly declared he was loving the work of Donald Trump, but was unable to point out one example of what he loved - despite James O’Brien asking more than 12 times. “Cards on the table, I’m a Brexiteer loving Trump’s work,” Alex began in his call to radio show. But it soon went down hill when James replied: “What’s your favourite bit?” The row was sparked after Boris Johnson suggested the US President could do a better job with the Brexit talks, saying Theresa May needed to shows "guts". In a leaked tape, obtained by Buzzfeed, the Foreign Secretary told 20 people in a private room he was “increasingly admiring the President”, adding “imagine Trump doing Brexit”. Alex agreed and decided to phone James O’Brien to show his support for the US President.He came unstuck, however, when the presenter repeatedly asked him for one example of Trump’s work that he loved. “I just want to cut to the chase,” the caller said as he tried to dodge James’ question. “He’s a politician who does what he says unlike here,” Alex said. So James asked again: “Yes, but what’s the thing he’s done? What’s the act he’s done?” Realising he couldn’t get away with not answering anymore, Alex finally conceded: “I'm not that in tune with American politics to give you a definite answer.” And as the row became ever more spikey, James ended it, saying: “Cards on the table Alex, you’re a clown”.

James O'Brien On The Brexit Ferry Contract Awarded To Company With No Ferries
 
02:32
James O'Brien On The Brexit Ferry Contract Awarded To Company With No Ferries. This is James O'Brien's comical reaction to the government's decision to award a contract to run ferries in the event of a no-deal Brexit to a company who don't have any ferries. Seaborne Freight, won a £13.8m contract to run a freight service between Ramsgate and Ostend, despite having no boats and having not run a ferry service before. Describing the decision as "Brexit in a nutshell", James O'Brien said: "Chris Grayling completely ignored warnings from the Dover Port Authorities, and indeed this programme - they have been telling us for two years what was going to happen in Dover in the event of any form of Brexit that didn't involve Customs Union and/or Single Market membership. "But they choose to ignore all of that. Chris Grayling got presented with a completely unforeseeable scenario (unless you actually listened to anybody who knew what they were talking about or paid attention to the adverts taken out at your own party's conference last year). "He's in a meeting a couple of weeks ago. It's explained to him we've given £100m to a Danish company and a French company."James then imagined how the decision must have been made: Grayling: "The Brexiters aren't going to like it are they? We need to find a British company to give some money to. Seaborne Freight. Are they British?" Civil servant: "Yes, but they don't have any boats." Grayling: "I don't care if they have any boats or not, are they British?" Civil servant: "Yes, they're British." Grayling: "Give them £14m and give it to them now. The £100m that we've given to the Danish and French firms, they can do all the boat-based business, we'll get this lot without any boats to fly the flag. Do they have any flags?"

James O'Brien's Brexit Caller Ends Up Arguing Against Holidays
 
04:17
James O'Brien's Brexit Caller Ends Up Arguing Against Holidays. This caller phoned James O'Brien to argue that reducing immigration was the main reason the UK voted for Brexit. But when James explained that leaving the EU wasn't necessary to do that, the caller ended up arguing against people having holidays! Andy said that ending freedom of movement was the key to why the UK has to leave the EU, but James pointed out that it was perfectly possible within the European Union. James said: "If you read the Citizens' Charter, you learn that in order to move into a member state, you have to demonstrate that you have sufficient material wealth not to become a burden upon the social service providers of that state. And if you haven't found employment in three months, you can be required to leave." But Andy insisted: "But that still leaves a three-month window, I suppose." James pointed out: "You just said that out loud on national radio. So we're banning holidays now, are we?"The call didn't get any better for Andy from there. James asked him: "Why are these people risking their lives in dinghies if it's easy just to waltz through the borders?" Andy had no answer to that. He then said: "A lot of people have been saying..." But James interrupted: "A lot of people have, but they're idiots. Surely you can see that now?" Andy admitted maybe he wasn't properly informed, but insisted he'd still back Brexit. James summed up the call: "There it is. Everything you've said torn to shreds on national radio. You've ended up arguing against holidays. And you still think you're on the right side of the decision, but you haven't got a scooby doo as to why. Except - forgive me, but you said it - too many foreigners. "What is your reason for wanting to leave the European Union?" At that point, Andy hung up.

James O'Brien's Caller Describes Boris Johnson As "Philandering Yoghurt Pot"
 
04:59
James O'Brien's Caller Describes Boris Johnson As "Philandering Yoghurt Pot". This is the fascinating theory from a James O'Brien caller on why people still back Boris Johnson, despite proof of his lies. Joseph in Plaistow called in with an explanation of the Dollar Auction Game. In it, he explains the game: "I've got £10 and two players. I say you can buy the £10 for any amount of money. But any amount of money that you offer, no matter who wins, I get to keep. "Which means that one person bids £1, it's rational for them to outbid each other up to £9, because they are still getting £10 for £9. But then one of them thinks they don't want to lose their money, so I'm going to call it quits and I'm going to buy your £10 for £10. "At which point, the game doesn't end, because the other player is going to lose £9, so they pay £11 and only lose £1. People keep outbidding each other and it can go up and up and up. James picks up: "So it becomes more about minimising your losses than maximising your profits. Mate, that's it." Joseph carries on: "Boris has got these people to play the game. Everyone else is bidding their time, reputation and cultural capital by supporting him. And they know that whatever happens, they are going to lose that to an extent. "So they think if they're going to lose no matter what, I may as well lose while electing a Prime Minister." James labelled him Caller of the Week and listeners loved Joseph's description. But they loved it even more for what followed. He added: "They are thinking 'Even if I know that he is a philandering yoghurt pot, it's my Prime Minister who has won."

James O'Brien Presses Caller Who Said The Poor Should Work Harder
 
03:29
James O'Brien Presses Caller Who Said The Poor Should Work Harder. When this businessman agreed with Theresa May that the poor should work harder to get more money, James O'Brien made a brilliant point that he couldn't answer. The Prime Minister challenged Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, over his claim that the economy is not working for the working classes. Martin called up to back Mrs May, insisting that he worked hard to be successful after having nothing as a youngster. He believes that anyone who's poor can do the same, they just need to work harder. But James pointed out: "The people I know who work the hardest are not the richest. "There's the caller from Dover who's working three jobs and going for an interview for the fourth. You've got the police officers who are handing over their babies in lay-bys between shifts. "Who works harder, the firefighters who ran into Grenfell Tower, or you?" Martin responded: "That's an emotional argument." But James insisted: "It's not, it's a simple argument. You're the one that's talked a lot about hardness of work. I'm just trying to define what you mean by hard work. "Who do you think works harder, you or the men and women who ran into Grenfell Tower. Because you earn a HELL of a lot more than they do." Uk Politics World News GE2018 Brexit G20 OJW Donations Welcome. https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=DPK4PYVL8ZSZN

James O'Brien Left Stunned By Expat Caller's Admission
 
02:44
James O'Brien Left Stunned By Expat Caller's Admission. This admission from a British man who has lived in Spain for 30 years left James O'Brien open-mouthed. Richard moved to Spain for his job with BP in 1985. He was meant to stay there for only two years, but ended up staying there. And to secure their future post-Brexit, they are having to take drastic action - surrendering their British citizenship. He's applying for Spanish nationality, but because they don't allow dual-nationals, he will have to give up his UK passport. In shock, James summed up his situation: "So the best case scenario for you is that you surrender you UK citizenship? "Your daughter has to apply for Italian citizenship to maintain the freedom of movement that she needs to continue to do her job. And you and your wife are applying for Spanish citizenship, hoping you'll be allowed dual nationality, but if you're not, you will cease to be British. "Every single day someone takes me by surprise. "I think I know it all, then someone like you comes on the radio and I see yet another negative of this utter nonsensical lurch into oblivion and absurdity."

James O'Brien's Epic Response When Caller Says Brexit Is HIS Fault. This is James O'Brien's brilliant response when a caller told him that Brexit happened because of him. Danny in Epsom said: "What worries me is that people like you created Brexit. "The New London types, you created Brexit and now you spend every day moaning about it." Once James had stopped laughing, he responded: "I appreciate you need to do this because you're feeling really stupid and you're not ready to admit it yet in public. "You can't say that the people who have been proved right when they said it's a mistake are responsible for people like you making a mistake."He had the perfect analogy for Danny: "When people say 'Don't put your hand in the fire' and then people like you put their hand in the fire and you turn around to me with your hand all pussy and blistered and you say 'That's your fault, that is', you just look like a clown.

James O'Brien Demolition Of Boris Johnson Is Electric
 
05:05
James O'Brien Demolition Of Boris Johnson Is Electric. James O'Brien didn't hold back as he tore into Boris Johnson for his lying and scheming. Speaking of Boris Johnson, James said: "He is a man who has lied to every employer he has ever had, a man who has demonstrated weapons-grade disloyalty to every leader under whom he has ever served. "A man who has lied to both of his wives and all of his mistresses. "A man who apparently dreams of leading and could lead, enjoys the support of the grassroots of the Conservative Party that is supposed to care about family values but somehow continues a ludicrous love affair with a man who has a love child running around west London." But it was Mr Johnson's comments about Winston Churchill backing anti-Nazism as a career move is what really irked James. "This is actually disgusting," he said. "This is actually indicative of a man who looks at the greatest Prime Minister this country has ever had and sees a chancer. He sees an opportunist. He sees a self-interested gambler trying to put himself on the right side of history. "He doesn't see a man who smelt much earlier than most just how rancid the stench coming from 1930s Germany was. He doesn't see a man who actually put his political future on the line by standing up so robustly and so completely, not only to Nazism but to attempts in this country to appease Nazism. "This is what he wrote: 'Churchill put his shirt on a horse called anti-Nazism and his bet came off in spectacular fashion'. "So Johnson's narcissism is so complete so utterly over-arching, he cannot even conceive of Winston Churchill's opposition to Hitler being a matter of pure principle. He cannot even imagine that somebody could stand up to something as vile as Nazism without self-interest being the key constituent of that position."

This Caller Believes There's A Better Brexit Plan with James O'Brien So What Is It?. This Caller Believes There's A Better Brexit Plan... So What Is It? This caller told James O'Brien that there is definitely a better plan for Brexit than the one Theresa May is proposing - but she clammed up when asked what it was. James revealed he actually feels a bit sorry for Theresa May, as he he doesn't think there is a form of Brexit that would please all Leave voters. Then Eileen called in. She said she voted Remain, but believes that there is a third way to deliver Brexit that isn't no-deal or a worse-deal than we currently have. James told her there are EU rules that all members have to follow, but Eileen said: "I don't believe that it's as intransigent as we're being told. If it is, then why not just be honest?" James pointed out: "Being honest means turning around and saying there is no prospect of us securing something better than the EU membership negotiated by Margaret Thatcher and John Major." But Eileen insisted: "I don't go along with that. I don't believe that the only two options are to remain or to go in a terrible, terrible state." And every time James asked for details of what that third option is, he failed to get an answer. James ended up saying: "I'm afraid I'm going to have to write you down as someone who just believes things could be different, but can't explain how."

This is what happened when James called him back. As James was discussing the study by the Institute for Fiscal Studies which said that working class men would be the most affected by Brexit, Chris texted in to say: "I'm glad it's winding you up so much". James was fascinated by why Chris was so pleased about this... so he called him up and Chris was willing to go on air. Chris said: " It's because you've been spent three hours today talking about it, James. Every single time Brexit comes up, you spend your time running it down." When asked what the positives of Brexit are, Chris responded: "We will be able to make our own rules in future, we'll be able to run our country the way we want to run it and we will have curbs on immigration, not that I'm against immigration." But James said to him: "But you've just been told that people at the lower end of the pay scale will lose their job completely and you've texted in to say you're glad. So tell me why you're glad." What followed was an increasingly tense discussion that listeners loved.

with James O'Brien, Anonymous Tube Driver Phones Daytime Radio To Explain £100k Pay Story. Anonymous Tube Driver Phones Daytime Radio To Explain £100k Pay Story. This anonymous Tube driver revealed his pay package, and it was far below the £100k figure reported. It's after figures released to the Sunday Times showed one London Underground driver earned £103,374 in the year to November. Nine others received over £100,000 - more than most airline pilots. The headline comes as drivers on the Central line prepare to strike on Saturday on the final shopping weekend before Christmas. Drivers will walk out from 8pm on Friday December 21st until 2am on Saturday December 22nd; then again two hours later from 4am until 8pm in protest after a train driver was dismissed. Driver "Bob" phoned James O'Brien to express his confusion over the headlines, explaining the actual base-line salary for an average tube driver. The tube driver said that the reported salaries of these Tube drivers are an exception and would include pension contributions as well as free travel as a benefit. In fact, the caller claimed that compared with other train operators, Tube drivers' pay grade is one of the lowest as he read out how much he earned last month. He didn't agree with how the highest figures had been reported, saying it completely ignored the base salary.

Leave Caller's Arguments Turned On Their Head By James O'Brien
 
05:59
Leave Caller's Arguments Turned On Their Head By James O'Brien. This Brexiteer insisted that leaving the EU is like leaving a golf club - but his argument ended up completely falling apart under questioning from James O'Brien. Gareth made a number of claims during his call, but ended up having to row back on them after James made some counter-points. He started by arguing for deregulation of the financial sector, stating that "regulation stifles innovation". But when James pointed out that the financial crash in 2008 was caused by not having enough regulation in the US markets, he claimed he had never argued against regulation. He then said: "When you leave a golf club, you can still go and play golf there and play." But he had to admit James was right when he responded: "Not at Gleneagles. Try to do that at Gleneagles. "Unless you can afford to take out a hotel room at Gleneagles, which would involve paying Gleneagles a fortune in the short term whenever you wanted to play. "But of course, that is what passporting was brought in to prevent the financial sector from having to do." As the call got increasingly tetchy, James summed up: "You won mate, get over it. You got what you wanted. "This deal was all that was ever on the table, unless you believe that you could somehow leave a golf club but end up with more rights, freedoms and access to the golf course than people who have carried on being members of the golf club. "Which is exactly what you said when you first got on the line."

This Is James O'Brien's Face As He Explains Irish Border To Yet Another Brexiteer. This Brexiteer told James O'Brien that Britain would succeed outside the EU because we can trade with Peru and Mexico instead. Discussing the problem with the Northern Ireland border - which many speculated would lead to the resignation of David Davis today - Charles asked him: " A hard border, most people would agree, would bring back Troubles in Northern Ireland, which would also spill over into the Republic. "So, why would the Republic, against their own interest, want to build a hard border with Northern Ireland?" Calmly and with an incredible sense of resignation, James informed him: "They don't want to build a hard border, but under the terms of European Union membership, they would have to. "Because you cannot have no checks between two customs unions. Otherwise, there's no point being in a customs union or a trade agreement." Charles insisted: "You don't have to actually have physical checks though." But James signed: "No, you specifically do." Charles then insisted that growth markets like Peru mean we could improve outside of the EU.

James O'Brien "Brexit Was Never Meant To Happen, It Was A Game For Politicians"
 
02:04
An award-winning Irish journalist told James O'Brien why Brexit is such a shambles - it was only meant to be a game for the politicians, it was never meant to actually happen. Fintan O'Toole explained that the Brexiteers were using the idea of leaving the European Union for political purposes, but never actually had a plan for winning. James O'Brien asked him how he explains to Leave voters that they were conned. His response: "Nobody wants to lose face. Nobody wants to admit that they might have made a mistake. "The real secret of Brexit is that it was never meant to be serious, you know. It was a game these people were playing and it was a game they were playing entirely for their own political purposes, but also just because it was quite fun and it seemed to have no consequences. "Boris once said it was like throwing stones over your neighbour's wall and listening to their glass houses shatter. You know, it's quite fun. Except that of course the glass houses are real people now. "This has become jobs, it's become people's prospects, this is going to have catastrophic consequences for everybody except themselves of course."The sheer frontery of these people in their sense that they've got all the lifeboats. "Rees-Mogg has just moved his two big hedge funds to Dublin to avoid Brexit. Nigel Lawson, who's chair of the Leave Campaign is off in France. Farage has German passports for his children. "All of that is well known. I think what you need to say to people is, 'Look they're not making a sacrifice here, you are the sacrifice. Are you happy being sacrificed?'"

James O'Brien's Brexit Call Labelled The Funniest And Scariest Yet
 
07:13
This is the remarkable James O'Brien clip in which he spoke to a Brexiteer who said he voted leave because his foreign neighbours are rude. Timothy got increasingly infuriated during the comedic call with James, as he was constantly asked "How will your life improve after Brexit." Listeners labelled James O'Brien call with a Ukip candidate the greatest ever. Originally, Timothy said: "It's to do with how I see the world and how I see myself and how I see countries." When James asked again how it was going to change his life, he blurted out: "I won't have to deal with people like... you," before he let out a yelp that needs to be heard to be believed. Eventually, Timothy admitted that one thing that made him angry was the rudeness of his neighbours in York. He went on: "My life will improve by not having bloody rude neighbours. My whole town changed. The last 10 years, I've seen my town change completely."

James O'Brien's Fiery Row With Caller Who'd Never Heard Of Him

James O'Brien's Fiery Row With Caller Who'd Never Heard Of Him. This caller to James O'Brien started by saying he'd never heard of him - and just got angrier and angrier. Christopher called to defend Boris Johnson, following the former Foreign Secretary's article in the Daily Telegraph in which he lays out his six-point alternative Brexit blueprint. He started the conversation with the antagonistic line: "I think that you're attitude is quite condescending. I've never called to your programme. I've never known who you are." From there, things just go downhill. After a short, terse conversation, James told him: "I'm sorry if you think I'm condescending, but I'm starting to think it's not my fault." Christopher got angrier and angrier trying name Boris's greatest achievement shouting down the phone: "My opinion is different to yours. It's a subjective question." James ended the call amid the yelling, saying: "Christopher, I'm very happy that you've discovered me. Now, if you could discover camomile tea, it would be the day of days."

The Caller On Trade Deals That Left James O'Brien With Head In Hands. This caller who works in advertising said "Trust me, the advertising industry will be fine after Brexit". What followed left James O'Brien with his head in his hands. Christian called in to say that his advertising company would be fine after Britain leaves the EU because they provide a service that people in Europe will still want. When James told him that services may not be covered by a trade deal, Christian insisted everything would be fine. But things quickly began to unravel and it became very clear that despite his belief everything will be fine, Christian didn't understand what a trade deal actually is.

James O'Brien: The Perfect Sentence To Sum Up Brexit Britain
 
02:34
James O'Brien: The Perfect Sentence To Sum Up Brexit Britain. James O'Brien said the statement from the Chief Executive of Nissan perfectly summed up the state of of Brexit Britain. Carlos Ghosn told the Paris Motor Show: 'We are preparing for the worst, but I do not want to tell you how we are preparing because you will say I am trying to scare people." James believes this one sentence sums up how media 'balance' has led us to this troubling position. He said: "This is the closest to perfect that I've been able to find. That's what our false notion of balance on Brexit coverage has done. That's what the British media has done. "It has essentially created an environment in which a massive employer decides it's not even worth talking in public any more because he knows that when he has finished explaining how Nissan is doing, the BBC and other media outlets will turn to some absolute sugarpuff like Jacob Rees-Mogg or Nadine Dorries and ask them to offer up the 'balanced' position. "So you end up creating the environment in which the Chief Executive of Nissan won't even bother telling us what's going on at Nissan because he knows that he'll have some halfwit on the other side of the studio shouting 'Project Fear'. "Wow. And still, this won't move the needle for anyone listening to this programme. That's the head of Nissan, but you know better, right?"

Businessman Explains to James O'Brien How Government's Brexit Approach Will Ruin UK Service Sector
 
04:04
Businessman Explains to James O'Brien How Government's Brexit Approach Will Ruin UK Service Sector. A consultant told James O'Brien the government's support for businesses Pre-Brexit is "pathetically nothing." The Economists For Free Trade report, backed by Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg, says the UK had "nothing to fear" from a No-Deal Brexit. It said a clean break could give an £80 billion boost to the tax base and cut prices by eight per cent. James O'Brien was discussing whether this would truly be the case and he received a call from Ray, an employee at a strategic consultancy business based in Manchester. Ray described the uncertainty currently facing the UK service industry telling the presenter: "Businesses are operating in an environment where they don't know the outcome. "What's being done to support British businesses in terms of their preparations for Brexit? The reality is, there's nothing. The response is pathetically nothing. We were told there was a programme but the programme has now closed." When James asked Ray if he felt encouraged by Jacob Rees-Mogg's comments that a No-Deal Brexit would boost the UK economy by £1.1 trillion over 15 years, Ray replied: "He's a fantasist. Little has been talked about the service industry. The UK is a service economy. "You've got the likes of former Defence Secretary Liam Fox saying 'we'll trade with the US', Think about it how are you going to send people on an eight hour flight, recover the costs of their transportation and day rates to service an economy in North America when our natural economy for the service industry is on our doorstep."

with James O'Brien "When I Got A Job At The Car Wash, There Was No Queue To Jump"
 
02:31
"When I Got A Job At The Car Wash, There Was No Queue To Jump". This immigrant had a brilliant turn of phrase to describe why Theresa May is wrong to label EU residents moving to Britain as "jumping the queue". The Prime Minister used the term during her speech yesterday at the CBI as she started prioritising immigration from the Commonwealth over the European Union. James was angry with her comments, labelling her a "middle-class racist". And then he got this call from Bela, which really stuck in his mind. Bela said: "This one I feel very strongly about from what I heard from the Prime Minister, saying that we're jumping the queue. "I would like to explain to her how we've jumped the queue. "I came to the country around nine and a half years ago with nothing. I used to be homeless. I slept on the streets for around three months, until I had my first job. "My first job was in the car wash. When I went to the car wash to take this job, there was no queue to jump. "My second job was in a restaurant, washing dishes and floors. When I went there, there was no queue as well. "I've done all of the low-paid, unwanted jobs. That was how it started.

James O'Brien's Eye Opening Call: "My Business Will Fold If UK Leaves Customs Union"

James O'Brien's Eye Opening Call: "My Business Will Fold If UK Leaves Customs Union". The director of an international haulage company has told James O'Brien that his company will go under if the UK leaves the Customs Union. John Shirley, the founder of the freight forwarder company in Dover, explained that the additional customs checks and travel disruption could cause permanent damage to his business. He revealed that just 1% of lorries currently need customs checks, but that area of the port is already full. If we leave the EU with no deal, every lorry will need to be checked and it will "grind to a halt". Speaking to James O'Brien, he said: "We have people who are reliant on our services. Their trucks will just be sitting here because a hard border is a hard border. There's no getting around it. "We've had technical notices reminding people that the freedom we've got at the moment will disappear. We'll have to do customs." Asked if there was anything the government could do, short of calling the whole thing off, that would help his business run on 30th March next year, he responded: "Nothing, no. Not with the idea of leaving the Customs Union. "We will be [in trouble]. And it won't just be us, it will be our customers as well. It's a really heavy, heavy blow if this goes ahead."

James O'Brien Explains What Adopting US Food Standards Would Mean For The UK
 
02:32
James O'Brien Explains What Adopting US Food Standards Would Mean For The UK. Jacob Rees-Mogg suggested that Britons will see the benefit of Brexit immediately with lower food prices due to a reduction in regulation. James O'Brien explains what that actually means - and listeners were horrified. Brexiteers have outlined how removing tariffs and regulation on food, which boosts prices, can help make Britain competitive once we leave the European Union. But James pointed out what aligning ourselves with US food standards actually means. He said: "The FDA allows up to 4% of a can of cherries to have maggots, 5% if they are brined or Maraschino. Up to one maggot or five fly eggs per 250ml of canned fruit juice is also allowed under American food regulations. "These are the ones that you'll remember, people like Daniel Hannan and Liam Fox say we should be untroubled about being forced to adopt. "Tomato juice is good, you can have up to five fly eggs and one maggot per 100g of tomato juice. "And remember, this will be the cheap stuff, they won't be buying this. They won't be buying their cherries at the bottom end of the market, you will. "What else have we got? Fifteen fly eggs and one maggot per 100g is allowed for tomato paste and other pizza sauces. If you need a little bit of help with the measurements, 100g of be a small glass of tomato juice. That's five fly eggs and one maggot. "Mushrooms are really sexy, mushrooms you can have twenty maggots of any size per 100g of drained mushrooms or per 15g of dried mushrooms. That's twenty maggots of any size. "It means thatAmericans at the moment are on average are likely to ingest between one and two pounds, for imperial fans, pounds of flies, maggots and mites each year without knowing it. "Now the FDA say that's safe and they're probably right and the future of protein consumption is probably going to involve more and more insects, so you're perfectly entitled to be comfortable with this, but is that really the will of the people? "The will of the people is for us to ingest one to two pounds of flies, maggots and mites each year without knowing it? Well, yes according to people like Jacob Rees-Mogg, that is the will of the people and you knew you were voting for that, because the free trade deal with America that they keep trumpeting would involve us adopting their standards for food regulation. "That would have looked great on the side of a bus, wouldn't it? We send £350m a week to the EU, why can't we eat one to two pounds of flies, maggots of mites each year instead."

James O'Brien Pulls Apart Brexiteers' Plan For Irish Border In Just Two Minutes

James O'Brien Pulls Apart Brexiteers' Plan For Irish Border In Just Two Minutes. Looking at the plans unveiled by former Northern Ireland Secretary Owen Paterson, James said: "Today they've unveiled their plan to address these apparently insuperable problems. "And their plan is to use 'established' technology and by 'modifying' existing arrangements. "Reading deeper into it, they've called for effective co-operation between Belfast and Dublin to address smuggling concerns and extra customs forms to be included in VAT returns. "These charlatans, these snake-oil salesmen, these pantomime toffs, these spivs and these mountebanks have come up with a plan to address the problem of the Irish border and you now have a world exclusive insight into what that plan is. That plan is to urge Belfast and Dublin to come up with a plan." James O'Brien needed less than two minutes to tear apart the Brexiteer MPs plan for the Northern Ireland border. Jacob Rees-Mogg's European Research Group today unveiled their proposal on the tricky topic of the Irish border, aimed at replacing the Prime Minister's Chequers Agreement. James O'Brien read their plan and destroyed it in two minutes. Speaking on his show, he said: "We've been saying for two years that this will be the stumbling block of stumbling blocks. If you have read the Good Friday Agreement, you will know that regulatory alignment means that you cannot have different economic circumstances on both sides of the border. Otherwise the Good Friday Agreement fails. "But you cannot leave the Customs Union and the Single Market without having different trading arrangements on both sides of the border, because one side will still be in one and one side won't."

The Moment Van Driver Who Went Viral Takes On Jacob Rees Mogg On Customs Union. This is the moment that Ciaran, the express van driver who went viral on last weeks show, went head-to-head with Jacob Rees-Mogg over the Customs Union. The Van Driver Being Put Out Of Business By Brexit. Last week, Ciaran called James O'Brien to give detail of how his company would be affected if the UK leaves the Customs Union, revealing that it would put it out of business overnight. He got his chance to tell his situation to Mr Rees-Mogg, one of the leading Brexiteers. And he wasn't happy with the answers he was given. After listening the backbench MP's answer, Ciaran told him: "There's not one single White Paper that the government has yet produced on road transport, apart from permits for trailers. "Everybody will be affected. Driving licenses will be affected. "This is going to put small and medium-sized businesses out of business overnight. We won't be able to compete and all you're going to have is the large companies running it. "I transport exhibitions, I transport car parts for just-in-time production lines, I do band work for concerts. They cannot go by truck, they must go by van. "They rely on the smooth and frictionless transport over borders from Dover to Calais, where you do not stop to clear customs. There's nowhere to stop and it will be an absolute disaster when it does." Mr Rees-Mogg responded: "There will be a White Paper, there is a Bill on transport going through the House of Commons at the moment and the issue with driving licenses is at the forefront of the Department of Transport's mind already and they have a solution in sight. "I think the fears are being overstated." Uk Politics World News GE2018 Brexit G20 OJW Donations Welcome. https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=DPK4PYVL8ZSZN

This is the remarkable call from a four-time Ukip candidate to James O'Brien that left radio show listeners speechless. James was asking why it could possibly be a bad thing for MPs to have a say if we can only get a rotten deal from the EU. Then Philip called up and radio show listeners all stopped what they were doing in disbelief. James asked him: "They say 'We must have the right to apply the brake if it becomes absolutely obvious that we're driving into a burning building.' "And you say 'No, even if we're driving into a burning building, we must absolutely not have a brake'?" Some people were convinced that Philip was a hoax caller, but research shows that he did indeed stand for Ukip four times, including in the General Election in 2010 in Milton Keynes South, getting just over 2,000 votes.

James O'Brien's Damning Verdict On Theresa May's Views On Foreigners. James O'Brien's gave his opinion on Theresa May's view of foreigners following her "jump the queue" speech - and it's very damning. The Prime Minister said that European citizens would no longer be allowed to "jump the queue" to come and live in Britain. But James said her rhetoric smelt of someone who thinks they are superior simply because of where she was born. Speaking on his show, he said: "I remember looking at the Windrush story and thinking she's a middle class racist. She'd never throw bricks through windows or wave placards or go on marches, but there's a sort of quiet acceptance that the circumstances of her birth somehow render her superior to somebody born elsewhere. "Theresa May, for all her pursed-lipped sanctimony actually I think subscribes to a very similar line of thought. Because what else have you got? "Why else would actually, without realising how offensive it was, comfortably an casually describe you or your husband or your wife, your mother or your father, your colleague, your classmate as a queue jumper, as a cheat, as someone who is not to be trusted? Someone who will game the system, someone who is not quite playing with a straight bat, someone who is a little bit iffy, a little bit dodgy, a little bit sly. Why? Because they are foreign. "3million queue jumpers. Weird. "And then of course, because she adds quickly afterwards, 'Well, Indian software developers andAustralian engineers, she thinks she's got a fig leaf to describe what she's just done. But she hasn't, has she?" Uk Politics World News GE2018 Brexit G20 OJW Donations Welcome. https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=DPK4PYVL8ZSZN

Leaver Calls James O'Brien To Defend No Deal Brexit, Ends Up Saying We Should Stay. This Brexiteer made a complete U-turn after calling to defend a no-deal Brexit and ending up admitting it's better not to leave the EU. As James O'Brien asked listeners to explain what "Leave" actually means, Ken called with a series of analogies about how everything we do in live involves some sort of unknown. But each time he made a point, James was able to easily knock it down. And it went on for so long, eventually Ken said: "You can't predict what is on the other side of the door. The safe position is to say we won't go through the door." James responded: "Oh finally Ken. There you go, that felt good, didn't it?" Earlier, Ken had said: "We've been in the EU, formerly the EC for 40 years. Before that, we knew exactly what trading terms we were on, we controlled migration." James told him: "No we didn't. We didn't have any controls on migration prior to 1974." Then Ken said: "We had our own courts." Again James pointed out: "We still have our own courts. I just walked past one. "You've rung in to argue from a position of absolute absurdity."

Caller James: I do. James O'Brien: I know. Well, deep down, you know you can't. Caller James: Well, I think that the parachuter who's holding on to you and you're strapped to him has let himself go and you've just got to fight for yourself. James O'Brien: So you're literally comparing yourself to a bloke who's jumped out of a plane without a parachute? Caller James: Yes, precisely, that's it. James O'Brien: Well then, we've got no argument. I completely agree with you. That's exactly what you are. What usually happens to people who jump out of planes without parachutes? Caller James: Well if they've been given the right training and they've got the right people behind them..." James O'Brien: You think that you can jump out of a plane without a parachute and with the right training, you can fly? Caller James: I do, yes. James O'Brien: Well I respect your honesty. Caller James: I appreciate your position. James O'Brien: There's no point me listening to you any more. You're obviously quite, quite mad. But at least you're honest.

The people who told us to hate the EU because it didn’t defend its members’ interests are now telling us to hate the EU because it’s rather good at defending its members’ interests, says James O'Brien. James labelled Theresa May's Brexit deal "terrible" and leaves the UK in the state that Leave voters have been insisting the country has been in for years. Speaking on his radio show, he said: "Nobody is happy with what's been negotiated. "What has been negotiated became more or less inevitable since when the Good Friday Agreement met the ludicrously early triggering of Article 50 and even more relevantly the red lines that Theresa May laid down in that speech. "As soon as they started pretending that the vote to leave the European Union had involved a conscious and deliberate decision to leave the Single Market and the Customs Union, we were placed upon a path that led inevitably to where we are now.

They own The Ritz, they own the Daily Telegraph. "They wouldn't have spent all that money and put all that effort into trying to act against your own interests if they didn't think it was plausible.

The No-Deal Brexit Caller That Left James O'Brien With His Head In His Hands

The No-Deal Brexit Caller That Left James O'Brien With His Head In His Hands.When this caller said the EU simply don't believe that the UK are willing to leave the EU without a deal, James O'Brien had the perfect response. Julian from Reading said that it's always been clear that the UK didn't want a no-deal Brexit. But James told him: "No it wasn't. March 2018, the European Union published 80 no-deal notices explaining the preparations they were making. That's nearly a year ago. "December 2017, David Davis wrote to Theresa May complaining that the European Union were making preparations for no-deal and that was undermining his negotiations." When Julian carried on where he left off, James asked him: "Repeat back to me what I just said." Julian admitted he couldn't, so James said: "I know you can't so listen."In March of 2018, the European Union published 80 no-deal notices, explaining in detail the preparations they were making for the eventuality of the United Kingdom leaving with no deal. "In December 2017, David Davis wrote to Theresa May, the letter was leaked, complaining that the European Union were making preparations for no-deal and this was hindering his negotiating process. "So for you to sit here on national radio and say we never really made them feel that no-deal was a possibility, it's not even silly. It's like arguing that the moon is made of cheese while sitting on the moon." Julian responded that he didn't agree, so James carried on: "Oh my days, man. 80 notices!" Julian then insists that no-deal would be a disaster, but also that the government should look like they are prepared to go through with it. James summed up the call: "There's no more reliable signifier that they believe it's a possibility than the fact that they are preparing for it. To suggest that we haven't made them believe that we're prepared to go through with it is not only a nonsense, it's an abject error. "And now, in the space of a three-minute conversation, you've started saying there's no way we can leave on a no-deal, it will obviously be bad."

British diver: We are not heroes after Thai cave rescue

British diver: We are not heroes after Thai cave rescue. One of the British divers who helped save 12 schoolboys and their football coach from a flooded cave in Thailand has downplayed claims the team are "heroes". John Volanthen has returned to Britain after the successful mission to reach the stranded group in an underground network in Chiang Rai province. After landing at Heathrow Airport, Mr Volanthen spoke of the relief he felt at seeing the boys rescued after an 18-day ordeal in the Luang Nang Non cave, but was modest about his extraordinary feat. "We were very pleased and we were very relieved that they were all alive but I think at that point we realised the enormity of the situation and that's perhaps why it took a while to get them all out," he told News. He added: "We are not heroes. What we do is very calculating, very calm. It's quite the opposite." There have been calls for Mr Volanthen and Rick Stanton to receive awards for their efforts. But Mr Volanthen credited the international team of military, navy and civilian divers who all "pulled together". He also paid tribute to Thai navy diver Saman Kunan, who died while replenishing oxygen canisters, saying his death brought a "bittersweet" taste to an otherwise successful operation. The IT consultant, in his 40s, who is based in Bristol, and Mr Stanton, a fireman from Coventry who is in his 50s, reached the group nine days after they went missing deep within the labyrinth. The final four boys and their 25-year-old coach were brought to safety on Tuesday, having entered the network for exploration on 23 June before it became flooded by monsoon rains. Their rescue was particularly treacherous because the boys, aged 11 to 16, had to swim through tight spaces despite having no previous diving experience. They were given a tranquilliser to keep them calm throughout the process. On Wednesday video showed the boys recuperating in an isolation ward in hospital, chatting to each other and making two-finger victory signs while their parents waved to them through a glass window. But it has also emerged that the operation almost ended in disaster when the water pumps failed in the final stage. Commander Chaiyananta Peeranarong, who was the last to leave the cave, has revealed how he heard shouts of alarm as the pumps failed in an area between two chambers, filling them with water as 20 rescuers remained inside. "Suddenly the Australian guy who was overseeing that area started shouting that the water pump had stopped working," said Mr Chaiyananta. "If you didn't use the water pump in that location, you could only come out with an oxygen tank," he said, adding the remaining people did not have diving gear to hand. "By the time the last diver was out, the water was already at head level, almost to the point where he needed an oxygen tank." Danish diver Claus Rasmussen told News how brave he thought the boys were. "They're stronger than most other people around. Had it been anywhere else than Thailand then I'm absolutely sure that none of those kids would be in any condition compared to what these boys are. They're super strong." Mr Rasmussen said the operation had left him "wasted - completely and utterly" and that he was looking forward to getting back to normal life again.

Businessman Tells James O'Brien The Brexiteers "Haven't Got A Clue". A businessman who runs a heating and insulation company told James O'Brien that Brexiteers "haven't got a clue" about the realities of leaving the Customs Union. James O'Brien was inundated by calls from small business owners who consistently told him it would be calamitous to leave the Customs Union. But the most terrifying call came from Nick from Greenwich who runs a multi-million pound heating and ventilation business that imports equipment from Europe. He told James: "At the moment we have no idea of what's going to happen. How are we going to get our stuff into the country to be able to fit these jobs? It's so up in the air at the moment. "I work with these people - we are a laughing stock in Europe at the moment. They look at us like we're idiots. "They have not got a clue. No one is listening. When the presenter asked Nick how his business would be affected by a No Deal Brexit, Nick replied: "If I don't get my stuff into the country, I can't get put my invoices in. How do I pay my monthly salaries? Come on Rees-Mogg tell me!"

James O'Brien's Unmissable Monologue On radio show Brexit Poll
 
02:49
James O'Brien's Unmissable Monologue On radio show Brexit Poll. James O'Brien thought the results of an radio Brexit poll made for "grim" reading. An exclusive radio poll revealed that people who voted for Brexit would be happy to leave the EU even if it means going into recession. But James O'Brien thought the results showed that leave voters believe they're worth more than EU nationals. "These poor souls think that somehow they're going to be afforded the ability to be cleverer than they have ever dreamt of being," said. "They're going to be able to get to choose who gets to live and who can't live on their street. "They see themselves in some sort of exceptional status whereby they are worth more than that nurse who lives over the road who is French, or that doctor up the street who's German, or that hardworking entrepreneur who started his own business but happens to be from Poland. "They somehow think they're worth more to Britain because of some monochrome accident of birth and that's what this poll is about." The survey for Radio by Deltapoll showed the 70% of leavers are happy for Brexit to continue even if it means longer queues at ports and airport border control. Radio show Political Editor Theo Usherwood explained the poll shows how little opinion has changed on the EU. Speaking to Nick Ferrari, he said: "What our poll shows is that opinion appears to be set. Very little seems to change the mind of leave voters. "The Prime Minister might be saying that Brexit means Brexit and we are scratching our heads wondering what she means. But voters have a very clear idea in their own minds. "65% say it means full control of our borders. 63% says it means no more payments to the European Union. "That presents a problem, because the Prime Minister has already ruled both of those out. We know that negotiations have taken place with regards to control of our borders and of course we're paying that £39billion to the EU as part of the divorce bill." One other interesting element of the poll - both Conservative and Labour leave voters would rather leave the European Union than for their party to be in power.

James O'Brien On The Only Brexit Promise Which PM Can Keep
 
01:57
James O'Brien On The Only Brexit Promise Which PM Can Keep. James said that Theresa May had inherited a "sack of promises" made by the ERG and the Brexit movement, and that after eliminating them all one by one, there was only one promise left to keep. James insisted that curbing immigration had become the only Brexit promise which Theresa May can keep. James' speech came after new plans were revealed in a document published by the Home Secretary Sajid Javid detailing the UK's new immigration policy after it leaves the European Union. The scheme will be open to all EU states and migrant workers will be free to live and work in Britain for a year before being asked to leave for 12 months before applying again. It would come into effect after the end of the implementation period in December 2020 and set new rules aimed at cutting net migration to sustainable levels. "So she inherits a sack of promises that have been made by, either the criminally stupid wing of the ERG or the profoundly sinister and dangerous wing of the Brexit movement", James starts. "She's inherited all of their promises and she's gone through them one by one. I can't keep that, I can't keep that..." James says as he intimates Theresa May's thought process. "The only [promise] I can keep, is the one about foreigners. And even though that won't do any good at all to the country, it will actually only do measurable harm, I can at least keep it, which is why I keep talking about the will of the people. Because for me to pull this off, I have to turn the will of the people into an immigration white paper. Everything else is gravy" James signs off.

James O'Brien Ridicules The Sun's Brexit Stockpile Story Line By Line

James O'Brien Ridicules The Sun's Brexit Stockpile Story Line By Line. The Sun had a story today that Britain is stockpiling tinned food to show the EU we are serious about leaving without a deal. James O'Brien ridiculed the story line by line. Their report read: "Theresa May has ordered “no deal” planning to step up - with the government poised to start unveiling some of the 300 contingency measures in the coming weeks." But James went through each sentence to explain why that is clearly not good news. One particular sentence in the article read: "The Sun can reveal that includes emergency measures to keep Britain's massive food and drinks industry afloat." James re-wrote that with what it actually means: "The Sun can reveal that a no-deal Brexit would threaten the survival of Britain's massive food and drinks industry." He added: "How can people write these things so dishonestly? It's quite spectacular. How can they write an article pretending this is good news? "This is literally about the entire nation stockpiling spam and Um Bongo because the freeflow of goods, 97% of which comes from the European Union, is going to be compromised and possibly curtailed."

James O'Brien, What Trading On WTO Rules Actually Means: An Expert's Alarming Explanation
 
06:08
James O'Brien, What Trading On WTO Rules Actually Means: An Expert's Alarming Explanation. After this expert told James O'Brien exactly what would happen if Britain starts trading under WTO rules, his response was really concerning. "I knew this wasn't going to be pretty," he said, "but I didn't think it was going to be this ugly." Bryce Baschuk, a Bloomberg Correspondent writing specifically about the World Trade Organisation, explained the process for trading on WTO, which Britain would need to do if we leave the EU without a trade deal. Leading Brexiteers insist that this would be an opportunity for the country, as many countries already trade on these rules with no problem. But Bryce explained how it would work - and as James says, it isn't pretty. Describing the positives of WTO rules, he said: "Ideally, the UK would be able to strike new free trade deals with countries such as the US that it believes it wouldn't be able to do with the European Union. "In addition, it would have the freedom to not be beholden to the European Court of Justice and have more independence or sovereignty over its trading relations." But the method of getting there seems particularly difficult. Yesterday, both the UK and the EU filed documents in Geneva outlining the terms they will use to trade with the rest of the world after Brexit - and the two submissions are fundamentally different. Bryce explains: "The UK is currently a WTO member in its own right. The issue is it does not have an independent schedule of concessions for the WTO - that's the menu upon which Britain trades with the rest of the world. "It needs to have that if it's going to strike trade deals. And the way that its approach is different from that of the EU is the UK wants to replicate its current trade WTO commitments by making just a few technical changes and then submitting it to the WTO for certification." The problem is that the UK's terms at the WTO are enshrined in our membership of the EU, so this approach seems optimistic as our market will be smaller than the EU's market.

James O'Brien's Must Watch Analysis Of British Politics Right Now
 
12:37
James O'Brien's Must Watch Analysis Of British Politics Right Now. Every word of James O'Brien's brilliant monologue on the state of British politics at the moment is important. We're entering the crucial period on Brexit, with a deal with the EU possibly being agreed next week at an European Commission summit. But the Conservatives are split, Theresa May is courting Labour votes, the DUP are threatening to vote everything down and Jeremy Corbyn is sitting quietly waiting to become Prime Minister. That started James on an epic monologue that covered the full, febrile state of British politics right now. James said: "I cannot for the life of me think of a time in recent British political history that looked as confused and as confusing as the current one. "And I have a horrible feeling that's why we are being discouraged from talking about it. "I have no idea what happens now. What will happen when the Good Friday Agreement comes up against Theresa May's red lines as drawn up in the Mansion House speech?"

Ciaran The Van Driver Reveals Brexit Customs Dress Rehearsal "Farce"
 
06:08
Ciaran The Van Driver Reveals Brexit Customs Dress Rehearsal "Farce". Today's dress rehearsal for the UK's customs plans in case of no-Brexit was supposed to have 150 trucks. What they actually got was 88 trucks and a bin lorry. The government organised the drill to test whether Manston Airport, a disused airport in Kent, could be used as a lorry park in the event that the UK leaves the EU without an agreement. Ciaran, who runs his own just-in-time courier company, is an expert in customs procedures both in and out of the European Union as he transports goods between countries on a daily basis. And he told James O'Brien that the drill was a farce. He said: "Your report said there were 89 lorries, but there were actually 88. Do you know what the other one was? It was a bin lorry. "You have to laugh or cry at the absolute farce that unfolded this morning. "I've been talking to a truck driver, drinking coffee on a disused airstrip. He said there were 88 trucks and a bin lorry which he saw. They were releasing them in batches of 25, going down to the docks. That's three batches. It was over before we blinked. "On average 6,000 trucks a day will be coming into Dover or Folkestone and stopping to clear their customs paperwork and will be meeting the trucks going out who are collecting their papers. You're going to have two hotspots of trucks." The government has started dredging at Ramsgate to make it a functional port following Brexit, but Ciaran suggested that would not be much help. He added: "Ramsgate has no customs. So all the trucks would have to go to the same two places - Dover or Folkestone. "And it takes five years to train one customs agent."

James O'Brien Commentates On Donald Trump's Q&A Session. Everyone needs to hear James O'Brien's fact-checking commentary to Donald Trump's question and answer session at NATO. The US President held an unscheduled press conference live from Brussels to discuss the agreement over defence spending by NATO members. He made a lot of claims and promises, so James made sure he checked every one of them live. When Trump took credit for the agreement to ay 2% of GDP to NATO, James interrupted to reveal it was actually Barack Obama and John Kerry who got the agreement. When Trump claimed the US pays for 90% of NATO, James pointed out the President had claimed it was 70% just a few minutes earlier. Listeners loved James's live commentary.

James O'Brien Giggles At Liz Truss' "Barking Dogs Deter Drones" Claim
 
01:26
James O'Brien Giggles At Liz Truss' "Barking Dogs Deter Drones" Claim. James O'Brien couldn't help but laugh as he listened to an old clip of Liz Truss saying that patrol dogs' barking helps to deter drones. The discussion on drones came after Gatwick's runway had to shut for 30 hours when an as-yet-unidentified individual, or group, caused severe disruption by flying drones close to the airport's runway. Liz Truss, a Tory MP and Chief Secretary to the Treasury, had made the comment in the House of Commons at a time when drones were being used to smuggle drugs and other contraband into prisons. One of these attempts was even caught on camera as a man brazenly attempted to fly a drone carrying drugs and mobile phones into HMP Pentonville Prison. He was later jailed at Blackfriars Crown Court on 6th November 2017. James O'Brien said that it was as if the law hadn't yet caught up with the technology, and that the individual had done "immeasurable damage" and yet there may not be an appropriate "punishment to fit the crime". He then introduced the old clip of Liz Truss, speaking at parliament about how to best deter drones from smuggling drugs into prisons. After listening to the clip, James was in fits of giggles. "A bit of fun never hurt anyone", he added. He tried to justify Truss' comments by hypothesising that perhaps dogs barking at drones attract prison guards which in turn deter the drones, but then tailed off as he realised he couldn't explain the point. "Maybe Gatwick should have just bought a shed load of dogs", he joked.

James O'Brien's Post Salzburg Monologue Is A Must Listen
 
01:38
James O'Brien's Post Salzburg Monologue Is A Must Listen. James O'Brien tore into Brexiteers who blame Remainers for the difficult position Britain finds itself in after Theresa May's EU disaster at Salzburg. The Prime Minister warned the European Union that the UK is willing to walk away with no deal after EU leaders told her they wouldn't accept her Chequers Agreement. James came to one simple conclusion: "The people with the strongest opinions about the EU have turned out to be the people who knew the least about it." And speaking on his LBC show, he criticised the Leave voters who are now blaming Remainers for the state of Brexit. He said: "It's your fault, you Remainers. You people with your pesky facts and your evidence and your understanding and your intelligence and your proof. That's why it's all gone wrong. "The European Union would have given us our unicorns if you hadn't kept insisting that unicorns didn't exist. The only reason why my unicorn hasn't been delivered yet is because you kept telling them that unicorns didn't exist. And if you hadn't kept telling them that unicorns didn't exist, we'd all have got our unicorns by now. "It was utterly unavoidable what happened yesterday. The plan could never work. We will not come out of the European Union with anything superior to what we have in it. "It's a flawed institution, it's an imperfect institution, it's a sclerotic institution in places, but in terms of Britain's options on the international stage from trade to security to just about every other aspect of international cooperation, it is far and away the best available deal. "But if I'd spent 30 years pouring poison into your innocent ears, claiming that it was the Fourth Reich or claiming that it was somehow an enemy of British interests or claiming that it was somehow dedicated to forwarding causes that were detrimental to the United Kingdom, do you think today I'd be able to turn around and just say 'Oh sorry about that, I think I might have got things a bit wrong.'"

Theresa May Has Never Been Able To Say Brexit Will Be Bad: James O'Brien
 
03:02
Theresa May Has Never Been Able To Say Brexit Will Be Bad: James O'Brien. James O'Brien pinpoints why Theresa May has never been able to admit the most fundamental truth of Brexit. The presenter said that her "innate and instinctive dislike of foreigners" was not a big enough prize or priority to endure the economic damage that she understood Brexit would bring about. "In a rational universe, the moment she became Prime Minister she should have come out and said 'it's going to be awful, but this is what you want, my job is to make it as less awful as possible'," he said. "And that's what her deal is, the least awful negotiable arrangement with the European Union." MPs are expected to reject the Prime Minister's Brexit plan when it is put to a vote in Parliament on Tuesday, but Theresa May has warned them that failing to deliver on Brexit would be a "catastrophic and unforgivable" breach of trust in the UK's democracy. In the event her exit deal is voted down, some Brexiters have argued for the UK to leave without a deal, but other MPs also object to the no deal Brexit - calling for either Article 50 to be extended or revoked, or a second referendum to allow the general public to decide the next move.
