"This Caller Speaks For Me": Listeners Hailed This Passionate Anti-Brexit Call
12 September 2019, 13:18
Shelagh Fogarty's caller got very worked when speaking about fighting against Brexit - and listeners loved his passion.
Phil in Scarborough was having a normal conversation with Shelagh when one question set him off.
He said: "We've gone from best deal in history, have your cake and eat it, £350million for the NHS.
"Now it's 10pence off gin. Someone on your show a few weeks ago said 'If it was a car crash, the UK's car will be battered, but I'll tell you what, the EU's car is going to be worse'.
"You really think that I'm going to follow you off the cliff and leave on that?
"People aren't even hearing themselves when they talk. All Brexiteers say is 'We won, we won, we won."
"What are the benefits? There are no benefits now because it was all a lie."
Shelagh was forced to tell him: "Phil, stay cool. This cannot be good for your health."
Twitter was inundated with listeners who loved Phil.
Brilliant caller ‘Phil’ in Scarborough on @ShelaghFogarty on @LBC says voters aren’t stupid but did not have all the facts. He says it started with £350m for the NHS & has ended up with 70p off a bottle of gin! Well put Sir well put.— Luddite 🇬🇧🇪🇺 #FBPE ❤️NHS #PV Citz Assemblies (@h1llbillies) September 11, 2019
