On Tuesday's Backchat we talk about US politics. Donald Trump announced a deal with Democrats on debt that surprised everyone. Now he seems to be compromising on immigartion, through DACA, and possibly returning to considering the Paris Climate Accord. Some Republicans are angry, some Democrats think they're getting the best of the President. With Bannon gone, is Trump shifting political ground? Is this the Art of the Deal? Can Trump keep left and right happy? Call us on 23388266 or email email@example.com. After 9.20, facial recognition technology.

On Wednesday's Backchat, open space. A report from Civic Exchange suggests that nearly two million of us in Hong Kong are living with less than the planning standard of two square metres per person. In cities like Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai and Singapore, residents get between 5.8 and 7.6 square metres. This is outdoor space managed for recreational purposes - mostly urban parks and sitting out areas. Is it reasonable to expect more? What are the benefits of open space? Will we get it on the Central reclamation, in West Kowloon and Kai Tak? After 9.20, electric cars and the budget. (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 6393 5925)
