This caller took the information coming from the Welsh Government as worrying, noting that the lockdown imposed on the nation is killing business.

"We're only two days into the lockdown and the Welsh Government are already saying we may need another one" David reminded Maajid Nawaz. He worried that authorities are "laying the ground already to shut the country down again."

"I think Wales is becoming a very sinister place to live at the moment."

He attacked the Government's controversial crackdown on non-essential goods, asking Maajid "since when did clothing become a luxury."

Maajid sided with the caller, telling him that his own worry is where the restrictions will stop.

"It's being called a firebreak but in effect it's a full lockdown again," the dejected caller pointed out.
