Danny Dyer has gloriously taken down Boris Johnson & Nigel Farage over Brexit

The UK's leading political analyst speaks out

Danny Dyer has gloriously taken down Boris Johnson & Nigel Farage over Brexit
20 November 2018

All those years we spent listening to Andrew Marr, Andrew Neil, Trevor Kavanagh and the rest of the UK’s political commentators were a complete waste of time weren’t they?

Because it turned out that the person who saw most clearly in the current political fog we find ourselves engulfed in was Danny Dyer.

After the Eastenders star and general legend went viral for scalding former Prime Minister David Cameron for running off to Nice, ‘with his trotters up’, before calling him, simply, a ‘twat’, he’s been asked for his political views once again in the latest edition of The Big Issue.

This time, he’s expressed his sympathy with Theresa May, choosing instead to aim his fire at her Hard Brexit colleagues.

Under-fire PM Theresa May has Danny Dyer’s support. Sort of.

“Theresa May, bless her, just got that job by default,” he said.

“Boris Johnson running around with his stupid haircut spouting bollocks.

“Young people look and think: ‘If these are the people running the country, why shouldn’t I go and loot and riot?’”

He continued: “They just don’t give a f*ck. This us against them-type vibe has got worse.

“We are living in an age of food banks. How the f*ck did that happen? Seriously.”

He again slammed David Cameron, who called the referendum in the first place, saying:

“[Politicians] are floundering around. They have been given this thing called f*cking Brexit because of one man.

“One man. Who we voted in to be our prime minister, who purely for his own ego decided to call a referendum just to get rid of Nigel Farage.

“Farage, another prick in a suit who tapped into something - and I suppose it is that white working-class, middle-age man who lost his voice slightly.

“He tapped into what he felt maybe they wanted to say and twisted it. He got a bit of a following, so Cameron decided to call a referendum just to get him.”

“Well, f*ck you, Cameron you posh twat. Sorry. It backfired on him didn’t it? And what does he do? He f*cks off. He doesn’t like the way it went and he f*cked off.”

Hard to argue with any of it really. You can read the full thing by buying The Big Issue right here.
