When this caller asked James O'Brien why he voted Remain, his answer was so, so powerful.

Rob in Bedford said that he voted for Brexit based on the future he saw for his children's generation and wanted to know what reasons James had for being so confident that remaining was the correct option.

And LBC listeners were very moved by James's response.

He said: "I looked at the observable reality of my life, my entire life, and decided it was better than the unknown.

"The freedom of movement that myself and my children would continue to enjoy.

"The economic growth, hopefully with a little bit more of leftish redistribution of the wealth that we generate, but the economic growth which saw us continue to punch way above our weight.

"All of the things that I voted for were, in the simplest of terms Rob, the stuff I already had."
