    Chris Patten's Visit to Hong Kong / Illegal parking on the rise

    On Backchat we talk about Chris Patten. The ex-Governor is back, talking about political reform, independence and the rule of law. Do you welcome his take, or is he making trouble? For some in Hong Kong he's surrounded by a nostalgic glow, for others he's an unwanted colonial hangover. Is he right to say that Chief Executives will always need to stand up to Beijing? Have we reached peak Patten, or do you think his insights are still relevant? After 9.20, illegal parking tickets.

    Hiking Safety / UK Election

    On Thursday's Backchat we're talking about how to keep safe when out hiking. More and more of us are taking to the hills to enjoy the trails -- and in many cases going off the trails -- making the most of one of Hong Kong's great advantages, the closeness of the country parks to the city areas. But there've been renewed warnings about safety, with five people reported to have died in hiking-related incidents since the start of the year, already exceeding the total for 2016. So we'll be talking to some experts and asking what more needs to be done to promote awareness about how to avoid difficult situations, or how to deal with them if they do happen.  After 9.20, the UK set for a general election on June 8.  (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email backchat@rthk.hk or text 6393 5925)
