What did historian David Starkey say to the BBC's Nick Robinson about Britain leaving the EU?

On the BBC's Today programme on 29 March 2017, historian David Starkey said:

"We've of course been here before. This is only the second Brexit. We had a first and much bigger one, which was the break with the Roman Catholic church under Henry VIII. And unlike the intolerably tedious conversation we've just had, they knew what they were doing, which is I think what the great bulk of the British people knew what they were doing in the referendum."

Presenter Nick Robinson said:

"We invite you on our show and you attack our guests."

Starkey replied:

"Shut up Nick and listen to somebody who actually knows something. "
