Hyer's Highlights: This election is all about Brexit

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has announced plans to call a snap general election on 8th June, despite stating categorically time and again that there won’t be one. She claimed Britain needed certainty, stability and strong leadership following the EU referendum. It was thought that she intends to take advantage of her poll lead over Corbyn’s Labour, and give herself a greater mandate for governing the nation during EU negotiations.

This election, whether we like it or not, is turning out to be an election fought along the grounds of Brexit. But one listener doesn’t want there to be the opportunity to overturn the referendum outcome.

Hyer's Highlights: Trump pokes North Korea

"We’re prepared to respond to an all-out war with an all-out war. We are ready to hit back with nuclear attacks of our own style against any nuclear attacks". Strong words by Choe Ryong-hae, the man believed to be the North Korea’s second most powerful official.

Even if North Korea doesn't yet have nuclear capabilities, they have an intention to achieve them, and something must be done before that, or else it'll be too late. Their leader is not a petulant baby crying for attention in the corner; however irrational the man, he carries a threat.


Kim Jong-Un's monumental flexing of muscles in his military parade, followed by that failed missile test, is a show of strength that comes amid mounting tensions, with Trump simultaneously sending a US aircraft carrier group steaming towards the Korean Peninsula and threatening pre-emptive unilateral action.

But Ben, a listener, says we needn't panic...
