10 Minutes More (with Kup & Gurr) | The Irish Border

The issue of the Irish Border is one of the most contentious issues in the Brexit negotiations at the moment.

For decades, the UK and the Republic of Ireland have enjoyed a "soft border" - with free trade and movement between both nations. However, when the UK formally exits the EU on 29th March 2019, the border will need to be renegotiated as the UK's border laws change. Some argue that the EU are putting pressure on this issue to make life more difficult for the Brits trying to Leave... but, is the the issue of the Irish Border actually such a big deal?

10 Minutes More (with Kup & Gurr) | Sex Education

In England, from the late 19th century, a number of SexEd publications were produced - mainly aimed at helping parents enlighten their children. Now, in 2018, we see sex and relationship education is compulsory from age 11 onwards, although parents can write to their school to request that their children aren't included in SexEd classes, and only learn the scientific elements of SexEd which is in the national curriculum.

Hyer's Highlights: Plus Prices for Plus Sizes

Hyer's Highlights: Plus Prices for Plus Sizes

Fashion chain New Look is promising to review its prices after a public outcry over larger-sized clothes costing more than those in smaller sizes.

Recently, a shopper saw trousers which cost 15% more in the ‘Curves’ collection than a pair in the main collection. The issue has divided opinion over whether using more material should mean higher prices.

Some have suggested that it is reasonable to charge more for a garment which uses extra fabric. Others see it as a discriminatory “fat tax” which subliminally makes people feel like they are being told to lose weight.

On Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show he asked whether this practice is fair, or if the public outcry was justified. In response, listener Paige argued passionately that “being slightly larger” isn’t always a life choice, and therefore she and others should not have to pay more money for the same clothes.
