O'Brien On The Group Of Leave Voters He Feels Saddest For
James O'Brien on why he feels sorry for some Leave voters.
James O'Brien doesn't hold back in this storming analysis of why he feels very sorry for some Leave voters in the final days of the Brexit campaign.
"I think the people I feel sorriest for in this whole country at the moment are the people who want to leave the European Union and hate racism just as much as all the self-congratulatory right-on characters n the Remain side hate racism as well," said James.
The LBC presenter explained how some of his closest friends and his own late father would likely vote to leave the EU and "deplore racism with every iota of their being".
"Who spoke for them during this debate?" asked O'Brien.
"With a real sense of frustration and anger, who spoke for all the people who don't like xenophobia, who don't like racism...but who also don't like being the European Union?
"I feel so sorry for you. I really do.
"You must feel rotten at the moment. Rotten. Rotten, betrayed, dispossessed and unrepresented."
