Q: Danny Dyer speaks plainly about Brexit

If you can view the 45-second clip of Danny Dyer on Good Evening Britain, I recommend it. I'm hoping it might be a turning point, where regular Brits get tired of the Brexit lies and manipulations.
He's a plain-speaking Brit, and he just voiced a valid criticism or Brexit that pierced through the lies.

From the Guardian:
Danny Dyer became an unlikely remainer icon on Thursday night when he launched into a diatribe calling David Cameron a “twat” and demanded to know why the former prime minister was able to relax in France “with his trotters up” while the rest of Britain dealt with the consequences of Brexit.

Speaking in front of Jeremy Corbyn and Pamela Anderson, the EastEnders actor criticised Cameron for resigning after the Brexit vote and poured scorn on the apparent hypocrisy of him holidaying in Europe. “So what’s happened to that twat David Cameron who called it on?” Dyer asked the panel on Good Evening Britain.

Co-host Piers Morgan reproached the on-screen hard man and said “I think you’re referring to our former prime minister,” but that only served to spur Dyer on. “How comes he can scuttle off?” Dyer demanded to know. “He called all this 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 account for it.”

As the conversation moved on, Dyer called Cameron “twat” once more for good measure. Advertisement Videos of Dyer’s pithy analysis were shared widely on social media, with a number of tweets of his performance being retweeted thousands of times.

The BBC presenter Jeremy Vine suggested that “the second TWAT from Danny Dyer is everything”, while the Guardian’s Aditya Chakrabortty said that “in all my life, I have never felt so close to Danny Dyer”.

It was unknown whether Cameron was indeed in Nice on Thursday evening. He famously spent £25,000 on a shepherd’s hut for his garden so that he could write his memoirs in serenity and tranquility. However, he has reportedly been suffering from writer’s block and its publication has been delayed until next year.

The former Conservative party leader has been spotted meeting politicians and journalists around Westminster recently, fuelling speculation he may be angling for a return to politics.

Dyer also provided ITV viewers, shortly after England’s final World Cup group game with Belgium, with a refreshingly lucid analysis of the Brexit negotiations.

“No one’s got a clue what Brexit is,” he declared. “You watch Question Time, it’s a comedy.”

When asked by co-presenter Susanna Reid if Corbyn’s explanation of the era-defining political issue had made him any the wiser, Dyer said: “No, I haven’t got a clue. No one knows what it is; it’s like this mad riddle that no one knows what it is, right.”

The moment was the popular highlight of Good Evening Britain, a spin-off of Morgan and Reid’s morning show, Good Morning Britain. The programme as a whole was less well-received, with one critic complaining: “Not content with serving up Morgan for breakfast, ITV are now force-feeding him to us for supper too.”

We voted to exit the EU. That is democracy. Just because you don't like the result, that doesn't mean it is wrong. I thought the SNP had a monopoly on wanting democracy when it suits them. Then we had this vote and it seems everyone who wanted to remain has suddenly forgotten how democracy works. You can't change the result just because you don't like it. Stop bitching and moaning and accusing this person or that of lying about Brexit and throw your weight behind our country for a stronger tomorrow.

Disregard the word Advertisement up there. Where it says "Advertisement Videos were shared...". It was actually an advertisement that got included in the text copy-paste, the videos are not adverts.

If I try to edit questions, it's always a formatting disaster. So I won't try.

If I remember "Nice" was a victim of a truck attack on Bastille Day or some holiday last year, interesting choice for tranquility to write a book.

The referendum is basically a form of contractual trickery against the people. These creeps got a slim majority of people to sign the "contract", now it is claimed the referendum result has signed away the people's right to a further say in the matter.

And regular people are starting to catch on!

ambivalentmace:

So that would mean regular people are stupid, don't know any better, and elites need to guide them, run their life and basically take care of them. I have heard this story some where before.

You talk in hyperbole, and I think on some level you know you're being dishonest in your interpretation. You put words in my mouth, distracting from what I actually said. Read it again, and try to understand what is actually being said, don't angrily bark without listening.

And, if a conservative were to imply that regular people are stupid, your reaction would be "I know, right?". But when a non-conservative suggests it, it's a prelude to a communist takeover, oh God panic! Somehow, I'm not convinced by your alleged high regard and protectiveness, for average people's intellect. Haha.

Oh contraire, I say live and let live, if you let a stupid person have a microphone, it's great to show the world what they actually are, no problem, look at California, give it to Mexico, it's already a lost cause. People get what they ask for, I LOVE DEPLORABLES FROM THE LEFT OR THE RIGHT. SCREW THE ELITES.

Au contraire mon ami, Trump claims he is more elite than the elites, among other things because the people of North Dakota, just like him, have nicer boats.

The best thing about elite Trump is you know exactly what your getting.

 

He would never walk pass a camera or a microphone without molesting the damn thing. I do love watching the main stream media losing control of quote "free speech" in most countries. They used to control the narrative and now there crying the blues, one day one of these great developed countries is going to require political thought on you tube and other social media commentators to have a journalism degree to try and bring some control. Mark my words, they are going ape shit at losing control. Trump has more twitter followers than all of the news viewers of all the cable and network news shows combined.

You are fucking deluded from your last comment. Stop bitching about it and get on with your life.

 

Another one of those conspiracy morons.

coineineagh:

Take note of the anger on display. He who takes offense at a reproach, admits that it is deserved. Your precious Brexit is just another populist-flavoured scam to save corporations a bit of taxation, consequences be damned. Some people saw it straight away, for others, the prospect of looking dumb for believing the trickery, is more and more evident, forcing them to get more and more angry. Fucking deluded, or fucking obvious, you tell me, fuckface.

The problem I saw with Brexit as an outsider with no skin in the game as the black savior of the world so elegantly pontificated when he was screwing America, was the perception of a bunch of educated urban metro-sexuals were telling working class and countryside folks to shut the hell up and that the policy of the EU were in there best interest and they were just too stupid to understand this fact. I don't know why people still think browbeating and condescension is the best way to get cooperation and compromise, but you would think somebody would figure this shit out, but left or right, the other side has to be humiliated and shamed into oblivion to win an argument and then when the tide turns, you get it back in spades.

Booberry:

^ So true

 

I would basically you say you nailed it on the head to be honest. Actually as an American it was basically the  silent majority that won the game. I think the left (and of course the right) nowadays think the best way to convince someone to join their cause is to blast the f**k out of them telling them how much of a chav/redneck they are becuase they don't agree with your views.

 

"Yeah I love my free speech but I will NOT allow anyone else to go against my views or else they must be a facist Nazi" 

 

It's fucking boring now and as I don't agree with everything Trump is doing I would LOVE someone from the UK to have some F**cking balls and not be an overally PC withered Hag.

At the dawn of man, a clan of hunters in the Serengeti was following their leader on a hunting trail. They walked towards some bushes. Suddenly, the leader cried: "There's a lion in the bushes!"
All the clansmen scuttled behind the brave leader, as they all backed away from the bushes. All of them save one.

"Hang on a minute." said the last clansman. " You always say there's a lion near these particular bushes. And you always walk to these bushes every night. I think I know where our missing food has gone."

All the other clansmen were confused, unable to understand the connections their peculiar clansman drew from these bushes. They waited for guidance from their leader.

The clansmen asked: "Leader, are our clansman's strange ramblings a sign from the spirits? Can he guide us to our lost food?"

The leader was a shaman as well, he could interpret messages from the spirits for his clansmen. "No", he said, "this clansman has been possessed by an evil spirit. We must kill him to drive out the spirit!!"

The free-thinking, open-minded, progressive clansman was put to death, and the clan never found out where their missing food went. But none of the conservative clansmen ever fell out of favour with the spirits.

Nevertheless, every generation, new progressive clansmen were born, slowly changing their clan bit by bit, whenever the domesticated, conservative clansmen were not yet ordered to kill the progressives.

May should step aside.

 

Corbyn should have went as soon as the ref result was announced. He lost. Or did he win? We dont know. Is he for or against... we don't know. I dont know. Corbyn is fucking the whole thing up.

 

Did he fight that I am allowed a vote? Nope. I passed the 15 year rule... no vote.

 

It's a total fuck up. Only the SNP stands united against brexit.  And only the scottish conservatives are united pro brexit. Both of them.

 

It needs another referendum. Without a fucking doubt.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
