Hyer's Highlights: Donald Trump's IQ

Donald Trump has shown himself to be devoid of empathy, integrity, honour, humility, moral rectitude and decency. He is also devoid of intelligence.

Several comments he made in the last week alone – regarding global affairs, the economy, the media – go to show that he would arguably come out second best in an academic battle with a class of Grade 4 students. Despite his evident lack of knowledge on key issues, he challenged his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to an IQ test after he called the President "a moron".


However, contrary to Benji Hyer’s views, listener Rich feels that Donald Trump is actually a smart man simply overwhelmed and unprepared by the responsibility of office.

Hyer's Highlights: Organ Donation

Hyer's Highlights: Organ Donation

Theresa May has announced the intention to launch a new opt-out system for organ donation for England, following Jeremy Corbyn’s lead in backing a change in the law for life.

In 2016. there were 1,169 deceased organ donors and 3,293 transplants in England. Whilst this was the highest ever rate of organ donation, there are still more people waiting for transplants than there are organs available.


It means some people die before a suitable organ becomes available. Currently anyone who wants to donate their organs after death has to “opt in” through the donor card scheme; but in a new system, it will be presumed that an adult’s body can be used in transplants in the absence of express permission. That means if you die and you haven’t opted out, your organs will be automatically be transplanted.

Government consultation found that 82% of people were in favour of this change. However, on Benji Hyer’s listener Georgia was worried about creating a stigma about opting out, writing that it's someone's “personal choice and preference.”

Matthew Stiles on Gun Control

Matthew Stiles on Gun Control

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

This week, a listener sent in the question: After all of these mass shootings [in the USA], why has no President succeeded in implementing gun control policies?


The US has suffered another tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas, which left 50 dead and hundreds injured.

But in the wake of the attack, the gun control debate has resurged, with many gun advocates refusing to contemplate changing legislation on who can own guns, how many, what kind, and how easy they are to get. To many outside the US, this attitude seems confusing.

Matt argues that to understand the gridlock US presidents and politicians face when seeking to tackle any constitutional issue, especially gun control, one must examine both the history of the US that created the gun culture, but also the birth of the US constitution, and how things got to the point where changing a law is a herculean task - in the end, it seems like a clash between values seen as ‘traditional’ and how they stand up to a modern interpretation.
