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.

On Friday's Backchat, transport policy. A public transport Strategy Report this week included 67 proposals covering buses, light rail, taxis, trams and ferries. The Government is mulling over revamping the light rail services in the NT West, refining the bus fare adjustment mechanism, developing premium long-haul bus services with guaranteed bigger seats and fewer stops during peak hours, adding more bus priority lanes, and introducing 600 premium taxis, but ruling out Uber. What do you make of the ideas - what others would help us getting round town? After 9.20, UK elections. (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 6393 5925)
