This is the moment in 2021 when Shelagh Fogarty took issue with a caller saying that Boris Johnson lies with "every word" that comes out of his mouth.

LBC will be with you across the festive period with a range of special shows and guests - you can listen live on Global Player.

Speaking of Boris Johnson, caller Simon told Shelagh: "Everything, every word, every sentence, every noise that comes out of that man's mouth, in my opinion, is lies."

In response, Shelagh said: "You can't say someone is a liar with every utterance in your opinion.

"If you're going to do that - name the lie [and] prove the lie, like the one I did in the House of Commons the other day."

Shelagh went on to say: "But you can't just say somebody always lies as soon as their mouth opens without proving it."

Thank you for listening to LBC through the year. Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.
