This is the remarkable moment a Leave voter cried live on air after admitting to James O'Brien he was wrong to back Brexit.
Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab and Work & Pensions Secretary Esther McVey have resigned, saying they can't vote for Theresa May's EU Withdrawal Agreement.
Bill called James O'Brien to admit that he was wrong to vote Leave during the EU Referendum.
And he sobbed as he asked: "What have I done to my country? I'm so sorry."
But James told him: "Bill, there's 17.4million people. You can't take all the blame on your own shoulders.
"Look at the effort. These people are billionaires. They own The Ritz, they own the Daily Telegraph.
"They wouldn't have spent all that money and put all that effort into trying to act against your own interests if they didn't think it was plausible.
"I'm not going to let you blame yourself, Bill. No.
"Blame them, Bill, blame them. Do not blame yourself. Don't be sorry, be angry. And if you're not angry yet, I'll be angry on your behalf.
"That right there is why I've been doing what I've been doing for the last two and a half years."
Listeners were so touched by Bill's call.
Bill, who voted for Brexit, crying down the phone to @mrjamesob “What have I done to my country? I am so sorry!”— Damon Evans (@damocrat) November 15, 2018
I don’t blame you, Bill. I blame those who lied to you and promised you the Earth and everything that’s in it.
the apology calls on @mrjamesob from Leave voters are, in equal measure, heartbreaking and infuriating. How are the people who’ve peddled complete lies simply able to walk away from this?— Elliot Newstead (@ejnewstead) November 15, 2018
