Viewers absolutely lost the plot when Danny Dyer tore into David Cameron last night

Danny Dyer and David Cameron

On 28 June, England needed a hero. The football team had lost to Belgium, and Brexit negotiations were crashing. But cometh the hour, cometh Eastenders‘ Danny Dyer.

Speaking on ITV‘s Good Evening Britain, Dyer launched a stinging attack on former prime minister David Cameron. It sent viewers into meltdown:

“A riddle”

With a slightly bemused Jeremy Corbyn looking on, Dyer labelled Brexit a “mad riddle” before calling out Cameron’s role in creating the situation:

So what’s happened to that twat David Cameron who called it on? Let’s be fair … how comes he can scuttle off? He called all this on… he’s in Europe, in Nice with his trotters up … he should be held [to] account for it.

It’s fair to say that Twitter users absolutely lost the plot:

Cutting analysis

Yet, despite the bizarre situation:

…the consensus was that Dyer actually spoke a lot of sense:

And he completed the holy trinity:

A serious point

But Dyer does make an important point. Cameron called the Brexit referendum because he wanted to quiet dissenting voices within his own party and solidify his position at the top. And when it all went tits up, he scuttled off and put his “trotters up”:

This idea that there’s one rule for the creators of Brexit and another for the general public is not just limited to Cameron. Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg’s investment firm has been accused of setting up a fund in Ireland while warning clients about the dangers of a hard Brexit. And Nigel Farage is facing allegations he used insider polling knowledge to influence financial markets to make hedge funds millions, although he strongly denies the claims.


All in all, it was a rare moment of perfect synchronicity:

And some now say Dyer speaks for Britain:

Just don’t let him loose before the watershed.

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
