Hyer's Highlights: Who to vote for?

There are five weeks out from a general election, In the most recent local elections, the nations witnessed a flood of UKIP voters switching to May, many of whom would have voted Conservative for the first time. A stampede to the Tories, as it was described.

Equally, there are voters such who have no idea who they will vote for in this upcoming election, given that no party represents them. May is perusing a Hard Brexit, Corbyn is proving to be an inept opposition, and the Liberal Democrats would be foolish to believe that they can become the second-largest party.


Jamie wrote to say that the only choice is Theresa May, "This election is bigger than just who is going to be leading our country day-to-day, this is about the future of our country", wrote Jamie, echoing the soundbites of our Prime Minister.

Hyer's Highlights: Trump's 100 Days

Determining a Presidency’s success by inspecting its first 100 Days is a tradition of US politics. In many of his campaign rallies, Trump himself set a number of targets for the first 100 days – and now it is time to evaluate what kind of progress the US leader has made toward fulfilling campaign promises.


Trump promised to build the wall and ‘drain the swamp’ within his first 100 days, he was going to ‘repeal and replace’ Obamacare. In reality? His most notable and durable achievement is the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and he fought with Canada over milk.

Trump has signed more executive orders than any of his 12 predecessors – pulling the US out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, permitting pipeline construction and Arctic oil exploration – he has no major legislation to his name and has failed to break the Washington gridlock. There is a tremendous policy vacuum.


Listener Alex thought that Benji was being too harsh on Trump’s lack of achievements in the first 100 days as President, here’s what Benji Hyer had to say…

Hyer's Highlights: Strong and Stable Leadership

Theresa May can barely open her mouth without saying the words “strong and stable leadership”.

The Conservative slogan has been used 25 times in the Commons in 10 days, 16 times during PMQs on 26th April, and 12 times in one speech by Theresa May.


The 2017 Conservative campaign seems to be May stands up to say “strong and stable leadership or a coalition of chaos”, and the sitting back down again. No new policy and no media scrutiny; indeed, she seems to prevent media questions by either holding a campaign event in the middle of the forest in Scotland, or just answering every question with the same response about “strong and stable leadership”.

Sammy sent in a message agreeing with Theresa May’s ‘strong and stable’ message – Benji Hyer wasn’t so sure…
