Hyer's Highlights: Refugee Crisis

The refugee crisis is still very much ongoing.

A highly under-reported story this week is that approximately 100 migrants and refugees are missing and feared dead after their boat capsized off the coast of Libya. The International Organization for Migration describes the route from Libya through the Mediterranean Sea as the world’s deadliest. Last year, over 3000 people tragically died trying to cross from North Africa to Europe.


Politicians are left with a difficult decision of choosing whether to welcome refugees or control the increasing flow.

On Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show, listener Mackenzie – whose Dad works in British border control – gives listeners an insight into what’s happening at the English Channel.

Hyer's Highlights: A Brexit No-Deal

It looks to be the case that England’s defeat to Belgium in the World Cup won’t be the only triumph Brussels will be having over Britain.

Over two years after the Brexit referendum, and with only a matter of months left until the UK officially leaves the EU, European Council President Donald Tusk issued a “last call” to the UK to finally “lay the cards of the table”, or else a Brexit deal will not be completed before the Article 50 deadline in March 2019.


In his statement, Tusk claims that the “most difficult” issues have been left unresolved and that “quick progress” was therefore urgently needed if agreement was to be reached.

On Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show, listener Sophie nervously pointed out that “the fact we haven’t made any progress in a year since then is quite shocking”. Benji agrees, with a scathing attack against Brexit Secretary David Davis.

Hyer's Highlights: Legalising Cannabis

Hyer's Highlights: Legalising Cannabis

The government has announced that the use of medicinal cannabis is to be reviewed, which could lead to more prescriptions of drugs made from the plant.

The decision was prompted by recent cases of children with epilepsy being denied access to cannabis oil to control their seizures. Cannabis contains different active ingredients which experts claim could be therapeutic for certain patients.


Former UK Foreign Secretary William Hague has boldly suggested going further and fully legalising marijuana for everyone.

On his Sunday radio show, Benji Hyer responds to listener Scott, making the controversial case for legalisation, arguing that smoking it in moderation would be no more dangerous than consuming alcohol.
