Danny Dyer believes that ‘people who went to Eton’ private school shouldn’t run the country because they failed in doing so during the coronavirus pandemic.
Appearing on Wednesday’s BBC Breakfast, the EastEnders act said the ‘little group’ who attended the boarding school, near Windsor, have had their chance in power.
The 43-year-old, who appeared on the programme via video link with his daughter Dani, thinks it’s now time for ‘working-class people’ who have ‘lived a real-life’ to be given responsibility for how the UK is run.
Danny launched into a rant after he was asked by the host how easy he was finding it to obey Covid-19 restrictions.
‘It’s very confusing. It’s almost perfect to break rules really because it is hard to understand what the rules are,’ he began.
‘Just keep them simple and then people will abide by it.
‘We want to get out of this as quickly as possible but as confusing as it is, it just makes it so difficult.’
The soap star went on to add that, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and David Cameron, who were both pupils at Eton have had their chance in running the country.
He continued: ‘My one rant would be that we must learn now that the people who went to Eton can’t run this country.
‘They’ve done it, they’ve tried to do it and this little small group who all went to the same school in the same class, it doesn’t work.
‘So I feel we need some working-class people, people who have lived a real life, people that are in touch with what’s going on in reality, to maybe come to the front now and start to get involved in how this country is run.’
When asked whether he would consider going into politics full-time, Dani chipped in: ‘Oh imagine.’
To which Danny simply replied: ‘No, darling, I’m too busy.
‘I have got a game show on at the moment, I’ve got another podcast with my daughter, and of course, I am in the greatest soap that has ever been, so I am all right for the minute.
‘So let’s just watch the Government unravel themselves, I think.’
‘Let’s just try and stay safe and try and not catch this thing, and on the other side I’m sure we are all going to be better, stronger, more considerate people for it,’ he added.
Following Danny’s appearance, lots of BBC Breakfast viewers took to Twitter, to agree with the actor.
One tweeted: ‘Danny Dyer is spot on, they’ve had many years to improve the country for everyone but only they and their rich friends reap the benefits of our hard work. Come on in Etonians, you’re time is well and truly up.’
While another commented: ‘Danny Dyer out here talking more sense than the politicians.’
‘Consistently spot-on analysis from Danny Dyer,’one added.
Danny has previously shared his views on politics on the talk show Good Evening Britain.
He appeared on the panel alongside Pamela Anderson, Ed Balls and Jeremy Corbyn.
During that appearance, the actor didn’t hold back as he labelled David Cameron a ‘t***’ for calling the EU referendum.
