Journalist Carole Malone had a few words for a Remain caller on Jeremy Vine’s Channel 5 show. The panel were talking about Boris Johnson’s recent misadventures in Luxembourg. Before a joint press conference with the Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, very loud protesters were spotted attending.
The British Prime Minister decided to forgo the whole thing entirely.
However Mr Bettel continued with the press conference with an empty lectern placed where Mr Johnson would have stood.
Many are debating whether the Prime Minister deserved to be humiliated in that way.
Anne from Buckinghamshire called into the Jeremy Vine show to say that Boris Johnson “just humiliated himself”.
Carole Malone: "Are you joking?!"
She also said that there was “no reason at all” why we have to deliver the 2016 referendum.
Ms Malone furiously snapped back: “That was the biggest democratic vote this country has ever had.
“And you say we should just forget about it? Are you joking?”
Anne replied: “Absolutely, it wasn’t a democratic vote.”
The caller also took the opportunity to attack the Prime Minister.
She said: “He’s been playing the affable fool ever since he’s been around.
“He’s become PM, he thinks he can get away with playing the affable fool, but now he’s surrounded by sensible people and the sensible people aren’t so easily fooled.”

Ms Malone shot back: “Anne, do you think the people who were shouting and swearing at him yesterday were sensible people?”
Anne said: “Yes, I do, actually."
I do think they are sensible people because those are the people living in Europe who want to keep their right to healthcare, their right to travel among Europe, their right to live in Europe.
Ms Malone pointed out: “They’re not going to lose their right to live in Europe, Anne.
They’re not going to be chucked out of Europe when we leave the European Union.”
