On Friday's Backchat, law and order. Legco President Andrew Leung has blocked five legislators from a high-profile vote on co-location. The day before they had been removed from the Legco chamber amid scuffles with security guards and police were called. What actually are the powers of the Legco President when it comes to controlling members? Can he remove or block anyone he determines is disrupting proceedings? Is there any recourse for them? Police have been called on a number of occasions recently, and charges laid against Legislators - is this legitimate, or an abuse of Legco privilege? Has the President gone too far, or is it the Pan-Dems who are causing chaos? Call us on 23388266 or email email@example.com. After 9.20, a final call to save Central's Post Office.
