Following England’s World Cup football game against Belgium last night (28 June) Danny Dyer appeared as a guest on Good Evening Britain, sharing his views on Brexit, and the former UK prime minister David Cameron.

Appearing on the show alongside Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Pamela Anderson and Ed Balls, the actor aired his frustrations with the process of leaving the EU, and called David Cameron a twat.
“Who knows about Brexit? No one has got a fucking clue what Brexit is, yeah. You watch Question Time, it’s comedy,” Dyer said, responding to a question about Love Island contestants discussing Brexit. Dyer’s daughter, Danni Dyer, is currently on the widely watched show.
“No one knows what [Brexit] is – it’s like this mad riddle that no one knows what it is, right?” Dyer added. “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. Yeah? Called it on. Where is he? He’s in Europe, in Nice, with his trotters up, yeah? Where is the geezer? I think he should be held to account for it. He should be held to account for it.”
“Twat,” Danny Dyer added.
In light of the EastEnders star’s comments, Lena Dunham has voiced her support. Speaking to journalist Caitlyn Moran on Twitter, the Girls creator claimed she thinks about Danny Dyer “on average 4 times a week”.
“Let’s let him loose on America,” she added.
My obsession with Danny Dyer is real and I think about him on average 4 times a week- let’s let him loose on America

Other fans on social media have joined Dunham in praising Danny Dyer’s straight to the point rant.
The comic timing of Danny Dyer’s second “twat” should be taught in drama schools.

According to The Guardian political correspondent Peter Walker, Danny Dyer’s “twat” remark was discussed at today’s No10 press briefing, with the prime minister’s spokeswoman issuing a statement on the matter. “She hasn’t seen it and so I haven’t asked her about it,” she apparently said.
First time to my knowledge today that Danny Dyer gets a mention at the regular No10 press briefing. Also probably also the first time PM’s spokeswoman is asked if Theresa May also believes David Cameron is “a twat”.
