Hyer's Highlights: The UK's Brexit Crisis

Just over a year until the UK officially leaves the EU (and over 1 year since Article 50 was triggered), the British Government has claimed to have reached a "collective agreement" amongst the 26 Cabinet members as to it's proposal to the EU for it's post-Brexit relationship.

The agreement was allegedly reached during a tense 12-hour meeting at Chequers.


Benji Hyer discussed this on his Sunday radio show - but within 24 hours of the show being broadcast live, both Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned from their respective positions, turning an embarrassing and difficult situation for the Prime Minister into a full-blown crisis. It is unknown whether the government or their Brexit plans will survive in the coming turbulent months ahead.

With just over a year until the UK officially leaves the EU, there are calls of frustration and regret that Theresa May should have only triggered Article 50 now, having just decided Britain’s stance on negotiations - especially considering that her new-found stance has caused such instability in the government.

Benji Hyer discussed this on his show - and listener Harry messaged in expressing his anger over why it has taken so long, and Benji agrees that the strategy was totally disordered.

Hyer's Highlights: Trump's UK Visit

Hyer's Highlights: Trump's UK Visit

With Trump’s impending visit to the UK, Benji Hyer asked listeners what sort of reception the President should receive in the UK: protests, or Brits turning their back and not giving him the light of day?

Opinion was split, but there was at least a degree of consensus that we should not be paying Trump the slightest ounce of respect. However, one listener, Kelly, was insistent that the people of the UK should pay attention and show respect to the US the President, which inspired a rant from Benji about how Trump would not be at all deserving.


Trump is due to attend a black-tie dinner on Thursday at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, before spending the night at Winfield House in London. On Friday, he will travel to Chequers in Buckinghamshire for talks with Theresa May, before meeting the Queen in Windsor and then flying to his golf course in Scotland for the weekend.

Hyer's Highlights: Refugee Crisis

Hyer's Highlights: Refugee Crisis

The refugee crisis is still very much ongoing.

A highly under-reported story this week is that approximately 100 migrants and refugees are missing and feared dead after their boat capsized off the coast of Libya. The International Organization for Migration describes the route from Libya through the Mediterranean Sea as the world’s deadliest. Last year, over 3000 people tragically died trying to cross from North Africa to Europe.


Politicians are left with a difficult decision of choosing whether to welcome refugees or control the increasing flow.

On Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show, listener Mackenzie – whose Dad works in British border control – gives listeners an insight into what’s happening at the English Channel.
