Speaking during his LBC radio show on Monday evening, Farage invited Dyer to come onto the show by claiming ‘we’d love to talk to you about it here on LBC’ – but only if he doesn’t swear.
“Now Danny Dyer, who plays Mick Carter in the BBC one popular soap EastEnders, he’s got a lot of political views and he’s very upset with David Cameron. He said that ‘we voted him in as PM but for his own ego he called a referendum to get rid of that Nigel Farage’,” said Farage.
“He then goes on: ‘Farage is another’ can’t pronounce it it’s too rude ‘in a suit. Boris goes around talking’ too rude, can’t pronounce it.
“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. I’m not just saying that because you said rude words about me, I don’t really care.”
Dyer’s strong words were published in December’s issue of The Big Issue. Among other things, he said Boris Johnson had a ‘stupid haircut’ and claims Farage has ‘tapped into something.’
“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 and riot?'” Dyer said.
The EastEnders actor continued: “They just don’t give a f***. This us against them-type vibe has got worse. We are living in an age of food banks. How the f*** did that happen? Seriously.”
“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.”
