While discussing whether net migration targets should be scrapped after Brexit, Conservative MP Peter Bone told Iain Dale he has an app which shows, down to the second, when Britain will leave the European Union.
Peter Bone, the Conservative MP for Wellingborough and Rushton, spoke to Iain about whether immigration targets should be replaced with a system that ensures people coming to the UK make a positive contribution to the economy.
Mr Bone said: "What we need to have is fairer immigration and bring in the people we need and stop bringing in the people from the EU who we don't need. That will help move it towards the tens of thousands."
Iain brought the conversation round to Brexit saying: "231 days [left until Brexit]. How many hours?"
Mr Bone replied: "If you'll let me check my phone I can tell you - 231 days, 6 hours, 34 minutes, and 55 seconds."
The LBC presenter started laughing, adding: "I love that. I'm going to get that app myself, just to annoy James O'Brien."
