This caller to James O'Brien started by saying he'd never heard of him - and just got angrier and angrier.

Christopher called to defend Boris Johnson, following the former Foreign Secretary's article in the Daily Telegraph in which he lays out his six-point alternative Brexit blueprint.

He started the conversation with the antagonistic line: "I think that you're attitude is quite condescending. I've never called to your programme. I've never known who you are."

From there, things just go downhill.

After a short, terse conversation, James told him: "I'm sorry if you think I'm condescending, but I'm starting to think it's not my fault."

Christopher got angrier and angrier trying name Boris's greatest achievement shouting down the phone: "My opinion is different to yours. It's a subjective question."

James ended the call amid the yelling, saying: "Christopher, I'm very happy that you've discovered me. Now, if you could discover camomile tea, it would be the day of days."
