James O'Brien hears from a caller who says that the Brexit referendum "took his rights away".
James O’Brien heard from this caller who said that the Brexit agreement had “taken his identity away”.
He said: “Before 2016, I wasn’t involved in politics - I haven’t stopped since the referendum. “They took my rights, they took my citizenship away.
“The European Union is the only thing that fits.”
The call comes after, appearing on BBC's Newsnight on Monday, Nigel Farage said: "We're regulating our own businesses even more than they were as EU members. Brexit has failed."

He continued to tell James: “I haven’t got a country anymore…I haven’t got anything!”
James said: “You do. I mean it’s our country.”
He quickly replied: “Just because I’ve got a passport, I don’t feel I belong here!”
He went on: “I’ve been fighting for seven years on this. You, know, we’ve got to do something!
“We’ve got to get these Brexit pushers, they’re like drug dealers!”
