Danny Dyer has had it with people "who all went to the same school" running the country.
The Eastenders actor told BBC Breakfast that "we need some working class people" in power, rather than a string of "people who went to Eton"; 20 British prime ministers attended the school – which currently charges £43,000 a year in tuition fees – including Boris Johnson and David Cameron.
Dyer told the BBC:
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.
I feel we need some working class people that have lived a real life, people who are in touch with what's going on in reality, to maybe come to the front now and start getting involved in how this country's run.
Dyer was praised for "talking sense".
Danny dyer is spot on. Going to a posh school means nothing. If u can’t get in touch with reality, run the country… https://t.co/Ruie3vJvk2
