I wouldn't be surprised if it's true, he's done the occasional interview on subjects around the lowest paid people in the country and the politics connected to that environment and he's come across as surprisingly knowledgeable, empathic and to the point.

Yea, Danny Dyer has done a bit of a 180 in my estimations. How much of his older laddish stuff was just his character is up for debate, but he’s something of a voice of reason today.

I really, really want it to be a real quote.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Apparantly it is from his 2015 The World According To Danny Dyer: Life Lessons from the East End. He is pretty on the ball when discussing this subject to be honest. He has come a long way from encouraging young men to cut stag's faces

While both were ghostwritten, I think that Zoo column literally just put his picture at the top and had one of their writers do it all. Danny Dyer was just paid so they could use his name.

Ghostwritten autobiographies, the ghostwriter will interview the person and rewrite their answers into prose.

Dip gooseberry fool Ben Bradley gets called out for using I Have A Dream to try to "MLK said you have to be nice to me" by Martin Luther King's daughter. Hook it right into my veins.

Always kind of stunned that Ben Bradley is an elected MP.

I'm sure he'll say he was taken out of context. It happens all the time, Ben Bradley is constantly taking out of context the things Ben Bradley says or writes. It must be really upsetting to be misquoted by yourself all the time.

I think you'll find, Bernice, that you don't know as much about your father's teachings as me, the white British guy born more than thirty years after his death.
