'T**t Cameron is in Nice with his trotters up’: Danny Dyer breaks internet by talking Brexit
The usual breakfast show duo of Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid went on air at the later time 9.15pm, after England’s 1-0 loss to Belgium. Among the eclectic lineup of guests were former Baywatch lifeguard, model and animal rights activist Pamela Anderson and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
But it was Eastenders star Dyer who stole the show. His first move was to tell Morgan to “just stop talking” as Morgan attempted a stumbled apology about criticizing Love Island contestants - Dyer’s daughter, Dani, is on the show - but the gem that is Dyer truly shone when the topic of Brexit came up.
“Who knows about Brexit? No one’s got a effing clue what Brexit is, yeah? You watch Question Time, it’s a comedy!” opined Dyer, before describing the UK’s exit from the European Union as a “mad riddle, know one knows what it is.”

Getting down to who he deems as responsible for the current political upheaval in Britain since the June 2016 result, Dyer asked: “So, what’s happened to that t**t David Cameron who called it on?,” a reference to the former prime minister responsible for allowing the referendum to happen, only to resign and step away from politics entirely in its aftermath.
Through tense chuckles, a curious look from Corbyn and a wince from Susanna Reid, Dyer continued: “How come he’s just scuttled off?”
“Where is he? He’s in Europe, in Nice, with his trotters up. Where is the geezer? He should be held accountable for it!”
Sitting back in his chair arms folded, Dyer gave off a final call of “t**t”, cementing his status as a national treasure and as the best thing to happen to the Good Morning/Evening franchise since Richard Madeley embarrassed Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson on air.
On Friday, a spokesperson for Theresa May stopped short of defending the PM's predecessor. The only comments Downing Street would make on Dyer's "t**t" tirade was that was that the person who made the remarks was “perfectly entitled to their opinion”.
Needless to say, the social media reaction has been top-notch.
Danny Dyer saying "Brexit is this mad riddle, no one knows what it is" was actually some of the most astute political analysis I've heard in ages, until he bettered it with "What happened to that twat David Cameron?" pic.twitter.com/s4zH5awq0r— Alex Nunns (@alexnunns) June 28, 2018
What am I watching?!? Jeremy Corbyn discussing Love Island with Danny Dyer whilst sitting next to Pamela Anderson. Is this what Brexit is? #GoodEveningBritain— Amy Macdonald (@Amy__Macdonald) June 28, 2018
Can’t believe it’s been 12 hours since that slag Danny Dyer crashed into Brexit it still freaks my nut out to this day— . (@twlldun) June 29, 2018
My favourite part of this is Corbyn trying to appear neutral while inside he's like: pic.twitter.com/Eu48K3zVTn— Umar Nasser (@UmarN91) June 28, 2018
I 100% agree with him. The actual vote for Brexit is less of a problem than David Cameron running off and leaving us with Theresa and Boris.— ChrismanSpurs (@ChrismanSpurs) June 28, 2018
Think he’s got a point. And I’m a Tory.— Fiona Unwin (@fionaunwin) June 28, 2018

If Danny Dyer overturns Brexit then every satirist in the UK will be rendered unemployed overnight.— Otto English (@Otto_English) June 28, 2018
