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.

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...
