Hyer's Highlights: Brexit Resignations

In the last eight months, the Government has been rocked by seven Cabinet resignations.

The most recent are Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, which followed the departure of his colleague, Brexit Secretary David Davis just hours earlier, both in reaction to Theresa May’s compromise on the UK’s negotiation stance after a long meeting at Chequers (the Prime Minister's country house).


Although this brings further instability to the government, on Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show, listener Carly feels that if the UK “can now go in with a pro-active, strong negotiator with a plan”, then this could be a positive outcome for Theresa May. Benji agrees that if the Prime Minister sticks to her guns, them she could emerge from this turbulent week even stronger.

However, since the show aired, May has caved in to Conservative hard-line Brexiteers by agreeing to their recommended changes to her negotiating stance. Critics argue that accepting these amendments now means that her trade proposals are officially “dead in the water”.

Alec Feldman live from the Trump protest in London

Many people think that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day... but Friday 13th July 2018 actually was for many people.

President Donald Trump made his visit to the UK to visit Prime Minister Theresa May as well as the Queen amongst others for what was a very high profile - and controversial - trip. For the President's first time in London since being made President of the United States, the British people came out in force, rallying and protesting against him.


Those protests included over 250,000 marching on the streets over the weekend, as well as a giant balloon depicting President Trump as a baby (which was approved by London Mayor and Trump enemy Sadiq Khan!).

Whilst James Gilmore was presenting his Friday radio show, he spoke to Alec Feldman on the phone whilst Alec was at the Trump Rally in London. Listen below to hear Alec's description of the protest!

Hyer's Highlights: The UK's Brexit Crisis

Just over a year until the UK officially leaves the EU (and over 1 year since Article 50 was triggered), the British Government has claimed to have reached a "collective agreement" amongst the 26 Cabinet members as to it's proposal to the EU for it's post-Brexit relationship.

The agreement was allegedly reached during a tense 12-hour meeting at Chequers.


Benji Hyer discussed this on his Sunday radio show - but within 24 hours of the show being broadcast live, both Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned from their respective positions, turning an embarrassing and difficult situation for the Prime Minister into a full-blown crisis. It is unknown whether the government or their Brexit plans will survive in the coming turbulent months ahead.

With just over a year until the UK officially leaves the EU, there are calls of frustration and regret that Theresa May should have only triggered Article 50 now, having just decided Britain’s stance on negotiations - especially considering that her new-found stance has caused such instability in the government.

Benji Hyer discussed this on his show - and listener Harry messaged in expressing his anger over why it has taken so long, and Benji agrees that the strategy was totally disordered.
