Transcript of the exchange:
Pearson: “Have you been on holiday for six months? Have you?
“I think you must have had your head in the clouds, away or on holiday or reporting on a different team because if you don’t know the answer to that question, then I think your question is absolutely unbelievable.
“The fact that you don’t understand where I’m coming from. If you don’t understand that question then I think you are an ostrich – your head must be in the sand. Is your head in the sand?
“Are you flexible enough to get your head in the sand? My suspicion would be no.
"I can. You can’t.
"You’ve been here often enough. To ask that question you’re being very, very silly or you’re being absolutely stupid. One of the two. For you to ask that question, I’m sorry son, but you are daft.
“You’re wrong. You’ve been in here. I know you have, so don't give that **** with me. Please, don’t give that **** with me.
"I’ll smile at you because I can afford to smile at you.
"Now, do you want to ask a different question or do you want to ask it differently? Go on, ask it. Or are you not capable?”
Baker: “I don’t know, erm…”
Pearson: “You don’t know what, erm..”
Baker: “I don’t know how you’ve taken that question?
Pearson: “Well then you must be very stupid. See ya.”
Baker took to Twitter to give his view on the exchange.
