NIGEL Farage and Danny Dyer have become embroiled in a bitter war of words.
Dyer, who plays Mick Carter in Eastenders and has appeared in many films such as Human Traffic and The Business went off on one and launched an extraordinary tirade in an interview with The Big Issue magazine during which he ‘blessed’ Theresa May who apparently became Prime Minister by “default”. Not quite sure how that happens but never mind. It’s perhaps not the most fulsome praise.
Turning to Boris Johnson he said: “Boris Johnson running around with his stupid haircut spouting b******s. Young people look and think: ‘If these are the people running the country, why shouldn’t I go and loot? They just don’t give a f***. This us against them-type vibe has got worse.
He said that David Cameron backed an In-Out Referendum to ‘get’ Nigel Farage: “[Politicians] are floundering around. They have been given this thing called f****** Brexit because of one man. One man. Who we voted in to be our prime minister, who purely for his own ego decided to call a referendum just to get rid of Nigel Farage. Farage, another p***k in a suit who tapped into something – and I suppose it is that white working-class, middle-age man who lost his voice slightly.”
Cool as a cucumber, Farage invited Dyer to talk politics on his LBC show but warned people may not take him seriously: “If you’ve really got some strong views on Brexit, and the players involved, we’d love to talk to you about it here on LBC. But if you’re going to swear all the time it isn’t going to work or impress anybody.”
