    Greater Bay Area Development Plans / Legacy of Karl Lagerfeld

    On Friday's Backchat, more on the Greater Bay Area. Thursday's symposium, Co-organised by the People's Government of Guangdong Province, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the Government of the Macao Special Administrative Region provided more details on plans for the GBA, but also raised more questions. And how will businesses and ordinary people be engaged in the plan? What difference will it make to our everyday lives - and is that a good or bad thing? How can we integrate with integrity?

    After 9.20, Karl Lagerfeld, the most famous designer in the world dies.

    Andy Chan’s Election Petition / Blood Donation

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Andrew Work

    On Wednesday's Backchat we talk about the ruling on pro-independence activist Andy Chan Ho-tin's election petition. The Legco hopeful was barred from standing for election in 2016 as the returning officer judged that he was not sincere in signing a pledge to uphold the Basic Law. His party had been widely reported to not recognise the Basic Law or One Country Two Systems.  What do you make of the judgement, and what are the implications for other related cases where people have not been allowed to stand - including in the forthcoming by-election?  After 9.20, blood donation.
