A businessman who runs a heating and insulation company told James O'Brien that Brexiteers "haven't got a clue" about the realities of leaving the Customs Union.

James O'Brien was inundated by calls from small business owners who consistently told him it would be calamitous to leave the Customs Union.

But the most terrifying call came from Nick from Greenwich who runs a multi-million pound heating and ventilation business that imports equipment from Europe.

He told James: "At the moment we have no idea of what's going to happen. How are we going to get our stuff into the country to be able to fit these jobs? It's so up in the air at the moment.

"I work with these people - we are a laughing stock in Europe at the moment. They look at us like we're idiots.

"They have not got a clue. No one is listening.

When the LBC presenter asked Nick how his business would be affected by a No Deal Brexit, Nick replied: "If I don't get my stuff into the country, I can't get put my invoices in. How do I pay my monthly salaries? Come on Rees-Mogg tell me!"
