Hyer’s Highlights: Theresa May’s Dancing

This summer, the UK government has been busy stockpiling goods in anticipation for a potential no-deal with the EU come March 29th, when Brexit takes place.

Whilst some people begin to panic, one woman was having a wild time abroad.

On her trade tour of Africa, Prime Minister Theresa May took part in a few cringy boogies, which have been subsequently been parodied and hilariously dubbed online.


Amidst the widespread mockery of May’s mortifying dance moves, economists attempted to grapple with how he UK exports to all of the African continent will not, in any way, account for the loss of exports to the EU. However, Brits were more focused on tweeting about how May should be signing up for Strictly Come Dancing.

Discussing this on Benji Hyer’s Sunday radio show, listener Roberto sent in a metaphor comparing Theresa May’s dancer to her leadership, which Benji agreed was an accurate illustration of the Prime Minister’s poor governing style.

Hyer’s Highlights: Does lying help Trump? (Part 2)

On his Sunday radio show, Benji Hyer broke down President Trump’s ‘firehose of falsehood’ strategy – a technique where fear-mongering leaders bombard people with more lies than they can handle (find out more here).

In a feisty hour of debate on-air on this technique, listener Calvin messaged in suggesting that “smart politicians” lie for advantage, whereas “Trump lies for sport”, and “his followers are sports fans, enjoying watching the tennis match of comments going back and forth”.

Listen to Benji Hyer’s response – and how he compares Trump to a professional wrestler.

Hyer’s Highlights: Does lying help Trump? (Part 1)

During the 2016 election, researchers released a report warning about a particular propaganda technique.

The report was primarily about Russia, but the lessons that can be learned from it show how a powerful leader in any country, including the US, can actually benefit from telling porkies.


The technique referred to is known as the 'firehose of falsehood', which highlights how if you bombard people with more lies than anyone can handle, then they can ultimately turn out to shape public opinion in your favour.

On his Sunday radio show, Benji Hyer took a few minutes to evaluate how this is the case in regard to President Donald Trump, and other fear-mongering demagogues.
