Hyer’s Highlights: Theresa May is Dancing Queen

When British Prime Minister Theresa May took the stage to speak at last year’s Conservative Party Conference, it was not short of a disaster.

After prankster Simon Brodkin (also known by his stage name as comedian Lee Nelson) handed May a P45 (the name of the form you fill in when you retire), she proceeded to have a coughing fit on-site and the backdrop behind her collapsed.


In comparison, May remained unscathed at this year’s speech. She entered the stage dancing (if you can call it that) to ABBA’s iconic ‘Dancing Queen’, as a throwback to her viral moves when she toured Afirca.

In a discussion on Benji Hyer’s radio show over whether May will last as Tory leader into next year, listener Gabriel messaged that May craves media attention and therefore if she doesn’t stay in her position as Prime Minister, then she will most likely end up presenting a radio show.

Hyer’s Highlights: Kavanaugh’s Hearing

Hyer’s Highlights: Kavanaugh’s Hearing

The Brett Kavanaugh hearing was defining.

The story took over headlines around the world, and you can understand why. The US Supreme Court generally is a big deal, for its decisions have a profound impact on American society and the judges serve lifetime terms, allowing them to leave a legacy on the country.

But this case was even more significant, for three reasons. One was that it would tip the balance of the Supreme Court in favour of conservatives, potentially for decades to come. Secondly, Kavanaugh has a very lax approach when it comes to Presidential power (which is why President Trump nominated him in the first place). And thirdly, because of the astonishing testimony of psychology professor Dr Christine Blasey Ford, who claims that she was sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh in the summer of 1982.


Using a message from listener Amanda, on his Sunday radio show Benji Hyer boldly suggested that the biggest impediment to a Kavanaugh appointment is not this assault allegation, but instead his discreditable conduct during the hearing.

Hyer’s Highlights: Labour’s Confused Brexit Stance

Hyer’s Highlights: Labour’s Confused Brexit Stance

During the final week of September, Labour held their annual conference in Liverpool.

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell begun the conference by revealing a motion for the party's debate on Brexit. Essentially, the document said that if Parliament votes down Theresa May's deal and there is no resulting general election, only then does campaigning for another public vote on Brexit become an option, and the people would have to choose between a deal or no deal.


Then it was the turn of Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer, who, in contrast to McDonnell, announced that Labour would not rule out of option of Remain in a second referendum.

Later, in Corbyn's speech, the Leader of the Opposition pled for party unity and made a dramatic offer to Theresa May to do a deal providing she agreed to the UK staying in a customs union.

We ended the party conference with no greater idea of Labour's alternative plan for Brexit than we had before.


Discussing Labour’s confusing stance on Benji Hyer’s radio show, Benny was amongst swathes of Labour supporters tuning in who was left frustrated by the conference, venting his exasperation in a message which Benji read out on air.
