With the possibility of a no-deal Brexit looking increasingly likely, James O'Brien summed up the "five stages of Brexit" in less than three minutes.

With Theresa May in Ireland for Brexit negotiations, the LBC presenter questioned how much progress has actually been made since the referendum result two years ago.

And he broke it down into the "five stages of Brexit."

James said: "The idea everything was going to be great, then the fear that we didn’t have a plan began to bubble but they dealt with that by saying, of course we have a plan - we just can’t tell you what it is yet… then Mansion House made it impossible to have a good plan… and then when the Chequers deal was put together everyone realised there never had a plan.

"There was no plan."

The LBC presenter continued: “So then you move to the next stage of denial and guilt, which is to say, well it wasn’t our job to come up with a plan.”

"This is what they've done to Britain right now... they've pushed responsibility further down the road. All of these lies are just multiplying... and they just continue to lie and people continue to swallow it. It's quite incredible."
