Wednesday, December 18, 2019

As 2019 draws to a close, we look back at talkRADIO's most popular video clips from the year.

From Boris Johnson disclosing his love for making model buses to the ongoing Brexit saga, 2019 has kept us - and our listeners - entertained.


1. 'I make models of buses'

During the Conservative leadership race in June, Boris Johnson revealed to talkRADIO that he made "models of buses" out of wooden wine crates to relax

"I turn it into a bus and I paint the passengers enjoying themselves on the wonderful bus," he said.

2. Julia: 'I'm going to bang my head on the table'

Breakfast show host Julia Hartley-Brewer had enough after a Remain-supporting Labour activist argued that Brexit voters did not know exactly what they were voting for in the EU referendum.

"I'm just going to bang my own head on the table. We did know what we voted for. We were told we would leave the EU, leave the single market, leave the customs union, leave the European Court of Justice," Julia said.

"How many years must 17.4 million people be told we didn't know what we voted for?".


3. James Whale: 'I don't like to be threatened on air'

James Whale ended an interview with political commentator Paul Mason after the pair clashed over Boris Johnson's decision to prorogue Parliament.

"You're ridiculous and you're patronising," James told Mr Mason.

"I don't want to listen to you. I've curtailed the interview. Thank you very much indeed, Mr Mason. I don't like to be threatened on the air either."


4. Susan from Yorkshire: 'I want out'

Roving reporter Kait Borsay caught up with Susan from Yorkshire, who was protesting outside Parliament as MPs gathered for an emergency debate on a no-deal Brexit.

The Leave voter said she was "disgusted" that the EU referendum result had not been implemented.


5. Julia: 'Show some civility'

As MPs became embroiled in a heated row about the language used in the Commons, Julia said it was time they showed "civility to the electorate".

"Until MPs start showing civility to the electorate by respecting their democratic vote to Leave, I have just one word in response to your hysterical hand wringing and finger pointing. Humbug."
