Danny Dyer just summed up Brexit better than anyone else so far

And David Cameron is in the firing line

Danny Dyer just summed up Brexit better than anyone else so far
29 June 2018

Step aside Dani, the real Danny is back, and it turns out he’s, er, actually quite politically astute.

Clearly fed up with his daughter and namesake hogging the headlines as the by-some-distance-nicest-one on Love Island, the part-time actor and full-time geezer waded into the debate on Brexit with spectacular results.

The EastEnders star appeared on Good Evening Britain, the new spin-off of Good Morning Britain (bet you couldn’t work that out on your own) and, while guests including Jeremy Corbyn looked on, described former Prime Minister, and the man responsible for the Brexit vote, David Cameron as a ‘twat’. Twice.

Dyer told hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: 

“Who knows about Brexit? No one’s got a fucking clue what Brexit is, yeah. You watch Question Time, it’s comedy.” 

When asked whether he was any clearer after Corbyn had explained it, he replied:

“No, I ain’t got a clue. No one knows what it is, it’s like this mad riddle. No one knows what it is, right. 

“So what’s happened to that twat David Cameron who called it off? Let’s be fair. How come he can scuttle off? He called this on. Where is he?” 

“He’s in Europe, in Nice, with his trotters up. Where is the geezer? I think he should be held accountable for it!”

Before signing off with, undoubtedly the best bit of the entire tirade: a single, urgent, vociferous: “TWAT.”

While Corbyn and fellow panelists Pamela Anderson looked on with serious faces, former shadow chancellor Ed Balls could be seen laughing.

When Dani wins Love Island and Danny is rightfully elected Prime Minister when the government collapses with No Deal and a general election is called then the Dyers will truly have captured the hearts and minds of the UK people.

It’s just a matter of time now. Get your trotters up and start demanding it.
