The "Ignorant" Brexit Text That Knocked James For Six

As James talks about the chances of Northern Ireland leaving the UK because of Brexit, a text comes in that stops him in his tracks.


As it's revealed that Northern Ireland could leave the UK in order to retain EU membership as part of a reunified Ireland, James O'Brien gets an offensive text that he has to respond to.

James was discussing the letter from the Brexit Secretary that states that the terms Good Friday Agreement mean the six counties could rejoin Ireland in order to stay in the EU - and the British goverment wouldn't be able to stop it.

"I'm one of those people who struggles, really. I toss a coin if you want me to describe myself as having a British heritage or an Irish heritage," said James. "I just find the idea of the United Kingdom being smaller than it was a year ago really sad.

"More British military blood has been spilled on the streets of Northern Ireland than anywhere else in the United Kingdom. And if, as a result of Brexit, they vote to up sticks and and throw their lot in with the Republic of Ireland, you look the families of those dead soldiers in the face and tell them it was all worth it."

Just as James put the question to his listeners, he interrupted himself to read a text: "Hey! Look! Here it starts."

He read the text: "You are lying through your teeth, scaremongering - and guess what the kicker is on the end of that text, this is the country we're building, this is the country we're creating - typical Catholic, it says."

James responded: "You've already heard anti-Scottish sentiment growing...this incredible, breakneck rush towards the fragmentation and insularity we thought had been rendered a thing of the past.

"Now you'll see it happening with the Irish...what the hell are we doing? What are we doing?"
