Clive Bull had this incredibly calm response to a raging caller who insisted Theresa May was not capable of negotiating a better deal with the European Union.
Adam told Clive Bull that the draft Withdrawal Agreement was "not Theresa May negotiating a deal" but instead was "thrust upon her by the EU as a take it or leave it scenario".
"They don't understand the meaning of negotiation," he said.
But whenever he asked Clive a question, he got increasingly angry with the answer.
He left Clive bewildered when he tried to compare Brexit to selling a house, and later to selling a car.
"Have you never done a negotiation?" Clive asked.
Adam replied: "If you come to buy my car and you offer me X amount of pounds, I might come back with a counter offer."
But Clive had the final word: "How many times in a car negotiation does someone say 'that's my final offer', of course people say that all the time. Maybe we just weren't as good at it as the EU."
