Matthew Stiles | Innocent Until Proven Guilty

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…

The principle of innocent until proven guilty has been a staple of Western legal culture for hundreds of years, acting as the underpinning of our entire legal system.

But, in recent years we have seen a disrespect for this principle, jumping on bandwagons and instigating witch-hunts at the drop of a hat.

In this segment of the show, Matt looks at the idea that we don’t respect the principle anymore and discusses whether this is a problem here to stay, or a sweeping up of emotion caused by more recent news.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.

Hyer's Highlights: Trump's Government Shutdown

Hyer's Highlights: Trump's Government Shutdown

The failure of the US Senate to pass a new budget has meant that the United States government has literally gone into shutdown.

The Republicans were seeking funding for border security – including 'the wall' – and immigration reforms, as well as increased military spending. The Democrats, on the other hand, in return demanded protection from deportation of more than 700,000 undocumented immigrants who entered the US as children.


This is the first shutdown in US history which has taken place when the same party, in this case Republicans, controls both parts of Congress and the Presidency. The last government shutdown was in 2013, and lasted for 16 days. Back in 2013, the then businessman and 'deal-maker' Donald Trump, interviewed by Fox and Friends at the time, laid the blame for the shutdown with the President, Barack Obama. He claimed that “the problems start from the top and have to get solved from the top”, and that “the President is the leader, so he’s got to get everybody in a room and he’s got to lead.”

Though this time, Trump did not admit responsibility, instead accusing the Democrats of being “far more concerned with illegal immigrants than they are with our great military or safety at our dangerous southern border”.


On his Sunday radio show, Benji Hyer, said that the responsibility lays with the President, and he was the only one who had the ability to resolve this. However, listeners Charlie and George highlighted how the Democrats are the ones acting as ‘professional obstructionists’.

Interview with Nicky Morgan

Some would call Nicky Morgan an arch ‘Remoaner’ following the Brexit vote, some may call her a staunch defender of democracy – but whatever you think of her, she is one of the country’s most prominent members of Parliament.


Nicky Mogran is a British Conservative Party politician who has been the Member of Parliament for Loughborough since 2010, and previously served as Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities until 2016. She now chairs the Treasury Select Committee following the 2017 General Election.

She does not shy away from expressing her views on Brexit. Morgan supported the 'Remain' campaign in the 2016 referendum. Following Cameron's resignation, she announced she was considering running for the Conservative party leadership, although she backed Michael Gove instead.


Nicky Morgan joined Benji Hyer on One-To-One with Benji Hyer, on Thursdays on W!ZARD Radio Station to talk Brexit, the Conservative Party, Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn, and the future of the nation.
