Hyer’s Highlights: A Brexit Deadlock

There appears to be no way forward on Brexit.

Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal looks dead, unable to pass through the House of Commons; the EU refuses to budge or renegotiate on the Irish border backstop, even though Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn believes he could strike a better deal; doing nothing in time to then end up with no deal at all would be economically crippling; and another referendum – the only viable remedy to this conundrum, according to some Remainers – would divide an already riven nation.

On his Sunday radio show, Benji Hyer assesses the difficultly of this second referendum option, with the help of listener Harry, who is against the idea.

Hyer’s Highlights: Trump Withdraws Troops from Syria

If you thought British politics was in total deadlock, then at least you can be grateful that it’s still actually operating, because over in America, the US government is in partial shutdown, all because of Donald Trump’s infamous Southern border wall.

The wall was the foundation of Trump’s Presidential campaign promises. But he’s now demanding $5.7bn of US taxpayer money to build it, and Democrats in Congress are refusing to provide funding.


As the government shuts down, news from the States worsened as Defence Secretary James Mattis quit in protest over Mr Trump’s controversial decision to pull US soldiers out of Syria in what has been branded a “reckless” move. The President claims that Mr Mattis “retired”, but this is very clearly a resignation born out of pure disagreement.

Furthermore, reports suggest that the Trump administration could also announce plans to withdraw 7,000 troops from Afghanistan – that’s roughly half of the remaining US forces in the country.

On his Sunday radio show, Benji Hyer highlighted the serious implications of these withdrawals, taking comments from listener Steven.

Hyer’s Highlights: A Cashless Future

Shops, restaurants and stores all over the world are starting to refuse to accept cash payments are becoming more commonplace.

Ikea in Sweden, for instance, has experimented with a cashless outlet. In fact, Sweden is the most cashless society on the planet; not even 1% of the value of all payments were made using coins or notes last year. Australia ranks not far behind, with an ever-present use of contactless for speed and ease, making cash an almost spent force, if you pardon the pun.


UK Finance, a trade association, predicts that in Britain, cash will be used in just one fifth of all sales by 2026. In the last year alone, over 4,000 cash machines have been removed. But cash remains a permanent features across the pond in the US, where a market research firm disclosd that “hard currency” will still be around “for a long time” for reasons of privcacy and security, and also because some people live in areas where poor phone coverage and electricity outages still make cash the most reliable payment method.

Listener to Benji Hyer’s Sunday radio show, Mike says he’ll always keep a stash of money because he doesn’t trust the banks after what happened in the financial crash of 2008.

Benji Hyer helps to explain what happened a decade ago.
