On Monday's Backchat, are we losing our freedoms in Hong Kong? Some argue that our legislature is being neutralised, with unprecedented party bans and rule changes, lawmakers removed from office and jailed, other facing lifelong bans on standing for election at all, foreign joournalists kicked out and local journalists following Communist Party orders, booksellers snatched off our streets and the Basic Law in tatters. Is Hong Kong is fundamentally changing, and we are losing our liberty bit by bit? Or are we are still a very free society under rule of law and a clean government, welcoming to foreigners and with a boisterous press and civil society?
