Benji Hyer on Charlottesville

Charlottesville, Virginia.

Protests have turned ugly, even deadly. Despite Trump’s insistent that violence was committed from both camps; the truth was that the events of this weekend were not the fault of “many sides”, but of racists and white supremacists.

It is time for President Trump to recognise the violence, and condemn the blatant white supremacy which is still rife in the United States.

Benji Hyer did not discuss the events of Charlottesville, Virginia on his show this past Sunday – instead, here is a bonus clip with of him discussing it online.

Hyer's Highlights: North Korea and Trump

In the last week, we have seen a war of words between Donald Trump and North Korea.

On Tuesday, he told reporters that “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States” or else “they will be met with fire, fury and power like the world has never seen”: In response, North Korean state-run media reported that the country was “carefully examining” a plan to strike US Pacific territory of Guam with missiles.

The following day, Mr Trump boasted that the US nuclear arsenal is “more powerful than ever”.


As China encouraged restraint, Trump openly declared on Thursday that his “fire and fury” warning maybe “wasn’t tough enough”. Asked what would be tougher than fire and fury, he simply replied: “you’ll see”.

On Friday, he tweeted that military solutions are “locked and loaded” should NK “act unwisely”, and added that NK it should be “very, very nervous” if it does anything to the US.


The question arises as to how the United States should proceed. Listener Harry suggests that Kim Jong-Un doesn't care about his citizens; all he cares about is his own power.

Hyer's Highlights: Brexit Transitional Deal

Hyer's Highlights: Brexit Transitional Deal

Bridging the Brexit Gap: Options for Transition’. This is the name given to the report by The Institute of Directors outlining the options and recommendations for a post-Brexit transitional agreement.

The business lobby group has urged the cabinet to stop “dancing around the edges” of Brexit and start to bridge the “the Brexit Gap” between leaving the EU and setting up new trading arrangements, or else it has warned of “short-term chaotic cliff edges”.


Without any deal or transitional arrangement, havoc is anticipated in the airlines industry in particular and on the Northern Irish border.

Chancellor Philip Hammond seems to be the only one in the Cabinet mentioning the possibility of a transitional agreement, ending in 2022. An agreement of sorts seems desirable - if not completely necessary given the short time frame - despite it never been a talking point in the referendum campaign.


Benji Hyer asked listeners as to what they want to see in a transitional agreement, but listener Luke says that there’s little hope of obtaining any agreement or Article 50 extension.
