Reacting to another Trump victory in the race to be Republican candidate for the White House, James was particularly struck by a new poll result: 20% of the tycoon's supporters consider the freeing of slaves in the US a mistake.

"I think the time for pantomime is probably over," said James in his show opener. "Donald Trump is looking unstoppable."

On the slavery point, James shared his concern: "It is very much that flavour that seems to define Donald Trump. That howl of outrage and frustration that is not particularly articulate but is incredibly emotional.

Later in the show, a caller named Mike phoned James to question whether being "scared" was going too far. It got a bit heated:
