Hyer's Highlights: Trump's Impeachment

There have been many strange and unexpected weeks since Donald Trump became President, but few matched the past seven days for human drama and political dysfunction.


Trump’s presidency was plunged in to crisis this week after continual blows to his healthcare policy and a White House civil war between Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, resulting in new communications chief Anthony Scaramucci's obscenely expletive-laden interview, during which launched a scathing attack on senior officials.

This was all followed by the shocking firing of Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.


The question on everyone’s lips is impeachment. Caller Peter, from Canada, had his say on how long Trump will last in office.

Hyer's Highlights: Brexit Negotiation Strategy

We find ourselves at the end of the second week of Brexit talks.

It has been months since Article 50 was triggered. Yet the UK and EU are still at odds over the first items on the agenda, and little progress is being made.


EU negotiator Michel Barnier said the UK had not been clear enough about where it stands on these issues and this was frustratingly hampering progress. Barnier has requested clarification and details, something with the UK negotiators are noticeably lacking.

We’ve essentially ordered Brexit, but have no demands or plans set out, and Downing Street remains quiet.


Listener Dean messaged the show saying that the issue with Brexit is that nobody who campaigned for it can deliver it. Here’s what Benji Hyer had to say...

Hyer's Highlights: BBC Salaries

A BBC annual report has revealed the salaries of 96 of its best paid stars, with Chris Evans and Gary Linekar topping the list with wages of around two million pounds annually.

The main controversy was the gender pay gap; there was a £1.5 m difference between the highest paid man and woman.


The debate about whether revealing BBC pay was the right thing to do has split public opinion. Former Culture Secretary John Whittingdale argued that “if somebody is earning the equivalent of 1,000 households’ licence fees put together, then the licence fee payer deserves to know.”

Yet the counter point is that this being made public knowledge will only serve to inflate wages further, and this will act as a poacher’s charter, taking talent away from the broadcasting corporation.


Listener Maximillian feels the public deserves more transparency and talent should be paid less, here's what Benji Hyer had to say in response.
