Hyer's Highlights: Trump's State Visit

Last week, much of the world woke up to the news that President Trump had retweeted a series of videos posted by Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of Britain First, a political organisation from the UK which is widely recognised as an ultra-nationalist Islamophobic group.

Either he did it knowingly, in which case shame on him, or unknowingly, in which case also be ‘shame on him’ for not doing his research.


The videos feature a disabled Dutch child being beaten up, a Virgin Mary doll being destroyed by a Muslim terrorist, and an incident on a rooftop resulting in a number of people being dramatically thrown off to their deaths.

Donald Trump then hit back at Theresa May for her condemnation of the retweets, sparking a diplomatic row between the two nations.

The listeners to Benji Hyer’s show on Sunday felt that Trump's proposed state visit to the UK should now be rescinded. We cannot allow a world leader into our nation who incites hatred repeatedly. But listener Jonathan is keen for Trump to come, claiming that it's a question of "freedom of speech".

Hyer's Highlights: Brexit Divorce Bill

We have now learned that the UK has offered a larger potential divorce bill to the EU, which could be worth up to 50bn Euros, or £44bn.

This new amount has been broadly welcomed by politicians as if means that negotiations can continue, however Number 10 have been careful to play down reports that the final sum is even higher or if it has been totally decided.


This 50bn price tag has been the source of much debate this week. Nigel Farage is furious that we are paying anything at all; he’d be happy to crash out without a deal. But former Chancellor Ken Clarke claimed that the UK had to pay its “fair share” and “repudiating” the UK’s financial obligations would result in a hard Brexit, damaging jobs and investment.

Many listeners to Benji Hyer’s show on Sunday were furious, feeling that they had been scammed and duped by Brexit campaigners who promised that we could leave the EU cost-free, that we would pay nothing, and that we would pocket £350m a week.

But in contrast, Will believes that this is the fault of the hostile and resentful European Union. Listen to Benji Hyer’s response below…

Matthew Stiles on Prince Harry's Royal Wedding

On his radio show every Thursday, Matthew Stiles breaks down some of the most contentious new stories from the past week and answers the questions you can’t quite work out the answers to…

Now that Prince Harry has been announced to have gotten engaged to Meghan Markle, an American actress, the British press and journalist media are all in a flutter to bring out as much articles on the story as they can muster – from the barebones reporting of the event, to how Harry proposed, to what the Princess-to-be will be named and the conventions surrounding that.


In this segment of his show, Matt looks at whether the constant and ongoing reporting of the upcoming wedding may potentially be a bad thing, as it is used to cover up and bury potentially more important stories, as has happened before with other stories and events.

What does it say about Britain as a nation that so many journalistic outlets are running countless stories on this topic?
