    Is Xi Jin-ping a dictator or a strong leader? / US Tariffs on Chinese Imports

    On Friday's Backchat, is Xi Jinping a dictator or just a strong leader? 'Government, military, society and schools, north, south, east and west — the party is the leader of all' according to the President, and Xi is head of the Party, State and Army. With 'Xi Jinping Thought' inscribed in the constitution has all power become centralised in one man, and is that a dictatorship or a new era? What if that leader is benign , popular and works for the betterment of the country? Are the acquisition of titles and a cult of personality, the abolition of term limits as well as a crackdown on discussion or dissent actually signs of weakness? Does China need a strongman to ensure stability, continuity and certainty? Are there checks and balances in the system? Call us on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk. After 9.20, U.S. sanctions on China.

    Future of Pan-democrats / Russian poison and ex-spy in the UK

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Paul Letters

    On Wednesday's Backchat, the future of the pan-dems. What do the results of the by-election mean for the opposition camp? Losing for the first time in head to head, and with a reduced vote share overall, plus the loss of veto in the Legislative Council, is the influence of the pan-dems set to wane? How do you account for the fading fortunes, or is this just a temporary setback? Did they filibuster too much - or simply try to keep a rein on Government finances? Are demographic changes significant? Is it down to a lack of district work, or are they being deliberately sidelined out of existence? What are the lessons for the future? Leading figures will debate the issue and you can join in by calling 23388266 or emailingbackchat@rthk.hk. After 9.20, did Russia poison and ex-spy in the UK, and what might it mean for the World Cup? .​
