  1. David – I listen to you on LBC when you’re on in the mornings – and just wanted to thank you for presenting a positive and upbeat approach to the recent Brexit vote. In a mire of naysayers, doom mongers and harbingers, you are a breath of fresh air.

    Brexit was always a mid-long term play – and I truly believe our kids and future generations will be thanking us for making such a difficult decision- if everyone could only get themselves out of the tailspin they seem to have got themselves in.

    Just wanted to say thank you.

    Couldn`t agree more! I have been a DB “fan” for a good many years. He is a pragmatist and always talks sense. I was lucky enough to bump into him on the Tube once and was so pleased to discover he was as nice and polite as he appears on screen. Now if only we can find a way to get him to run the country………..!
