    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.

    Public Transport Strategy / Review of UK Election

    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 backchat@rthk.hk or text 6393 5925)
