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:

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.
