Hyer's Highlights: Trump For Brexit Negotiator

Boris Johnson has criticised the UK government’s Brexit talks strategy, saying it lacks “guts”.

He was caught on tape claiming that Donald Trump could do a better job at negotiating, saying: “he’d go in bloody hard. There’d be all sorts of breakdowns, all sorts of chaos. Everyone would think he’d gone mad. But actually you might get somewhere. It’s a very, very good thought.” Boris Johnson has apparently grown increasingly admiring of Donald Trump.


On his Sunday radio show, Benji Hyer asked whether Trump would be a better Brexit negotiator. Listener George felt that Trump’s ‘America First’ mantra translated into a pro-Britain stance would serve the UK well, yet Benji points out that the President’s recent economic tactics will backfire.

Hyer's Highlights: Israel / Gaza Border Conflict

Hyer's Highlights: Israel / Gaza Border Conflict

Clashes on the border of Gaza and Israel have resulted in the deaths of 62 Palestinians at the hands of the Israeli army, with 1000's more injured.

The number of casualties instigated international outrage, with the United Nations declaring that Israel had used disproportionate and excessive force.

Despite what many are claiming, the Gaza protest wasn’t linked to the untimely US embassy move on the same day. Rather it was a part of the last 7 weeks of protests leading up to Nackba Day, commemorating the 750,000 Palestinians that left or were expelled in 1948, when the state of Israel was established.


Israel describe the protests as a Hamas-led military campaign, reportedly funded by the Jewish state’s nemesis Iran, and designed to turn the border area into an active combat zone, allowing terrorist operatives to break through the security fence, enter Israeli territory, and carry out attacks against soldiers and civilians, potentially in the form of kidnappings and massacres. Palestinians, on the other hand, assert that the protests are civilian uprisings by a population that is occupied, besieged and oppressed, with one of the highest unemployment rates in the world, which is rapidly heading toward a man-made and wholly preventable humanitarian crisis.

On his Sunday radio show, as Benji Hyer struggled to get to grips with each sides’ valid contentions, listener Oliver was insistent that Israel has done a disservice to itself by using live ammunition against protesters.

Interview with Keir Giles

Interview with Keir Giles

Russia is notorious for its use of military hard power as part of its foreign policy.

The common stereotype is that Russia relies on hard power to maintain its status on the international stage – be that through the preservation of nuclear weapons, the invasion of sovereign territory, or alleged chemical weapon attacks on foreign soil.

But in past years, and in particular since the 2016 US Presidential election, analysts have noticed a shift, with soft power becoming a crucial tool for the Kremlin to obtain influence and undermine the West. Some of Russia’s greatest recent foreign policy achievements have come through the exploitation and efficient use of soft power.

Leading expert on Russia security issues, Keir Giles joined Benji Hyer on One-To-One with Benji Hyer, on Thursdays on W!ZARD Radio Station to discuss Russian soft power, cyber-warfare, propaganda, social media, and the impact they are having on democracies across the world.
