Danny Dyer floors fans blasting Oswald Mosley’s blackshirts as ‘fascist s**gs’
EastEnders actor Danny Dyer left fans begging for him to conduct more historical documentaries after he left spectators in fits of giggles following his hilarious narrations on a recent documentary.
He certainly provided an insightful description of the Battle of Cable Street – a riot that happened not long before the outbreak of World War II.
The soap star, who plays Mick Carter, was hailed for describing racist leader Oswald Mosley as "a melt".
As well as blasting his army of thugs, who set out to cause serious harm to the Jewish community that lived in London's East End in 1936, as "fascist s**gs".
The clip that saw the BBC soap star air his colourful views has since gone viral on Twitter, racking up over 500,000 views.
His narrations formed part of the Sky Arts show Danny Dyer On Harold Pinter – who was a Jewish playwright and took young Danny under his wing.
Although the rioting happened long before Danny's time, he has a close bond with Pinter.
Pinter grew up in the Mosley's error among the British Union of Fascists, who aligned themselves with Hitler.
Reminiscing, Danny said: "My East End was full of love but it sounds like young Harold lived with hate."
Venturing through the area where the very riots took place, he added: "Everyone here knows about the Cable Street riot in 1936, when Oswald Mosley and his blackshirts – not a boy band, but a bunch of fascist s**gs – came goose-stepping down the street."
Showcasing the rich baronet in a black and white snap, Danny went on: "Here he is, look. Oswald Mosley, the melt.
"This is a big Asian community now, but back in the day it was a very Jewish area and us EastEnders, we won't stand for terrorism, so everybody came together and they gave the Nazis a good kicking.
"And then the old bill turned up and gave everybody else a good kicking."
Laughing to the camera, from behind a metal gate with iron bars, Danny continued: "I feel like I'm banged up!"
After the programme aired Twitter became awash with floods of praise for the TV hero.
One wrote: "That's a quote and half."
Another exclaimed: "He should do more documentaries."
While a third joked: "This is top tier Dyer. So much to take away here. '…not a boy band' being a particular favourite."
