This is the moving James O'Brien call that LBC listeners agreed with in their droves with one saying it brought tears to their eyes.

"Oh, James, James, James" was how the call with LBC listener Daryl started.

He revealed to James O'Brien that he had "wanted to talk to him for so long."

"It's as though you're talking and it's coming out of my mind," the caller revealed.

Daryl went on to explain. he had previously voted for the Conservative Party, but, he said he was "not really a Conservative."

Explaining in 2017 he voted for Ken Clake, because he was "very, very, very remain."

Branding himself an "absolute European," Daryl asked who represented him now.

He said for him things changed when Boris Johnson refused to release the Russia Report into Brexit meddling.

Using a Delia Smith analogy which raised a smile on James's face, the caller asked: "where are all the people like me? Who are sickened to death of this?"

Branding the government "dangerous" and "divisive" he said, "Brexit has broken the back of our society."

"It's not Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat anymore, it's Brexit!"

"It's Brexit that's destroyed this country."

He went on to say the UK's exit from the EU has turned family against family.

But the caller's powerful and emotional words did not just move James, LBC listeners also reacted in their droves.

"He speaks for me too." One listener said.

"Hit the nail on the head." Another.

"Daryl's call brought tears to my eyes."

But, he ended his wonderful call with James by branding the LBC presenter an "oasis of truth, in a world of lies."
