    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.

    Pedestrianization and Walkability / UN Sanctions and North Korea

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Anna Fenton

    On Thursday's Backchat, pedestrianization. These days of severe air pollution are a good opportunity to think again about extending car free zones around town. Carrie Lam seems set to launch a new consultation in the Policy Address next month, so how are schemes like Des Voeux Road and Sai Yeung Choi Street working out? Where are other possible places? What about other ways to make walking more comfortable like covered paths, wider footways, more crossing facilities, escalators and elevator systems to tempt us off roads? Is it feasible for cyclists and pedestrians to share areas? Call us with your thoughts on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk. After 9.20, sanctions and North Korea.
