    US Politics - Mueller Report and Trump's Impeachment / Terror Attack in Sri Lanka

    On Wednesday's Backchat, we talk about U.S. politics. What does the Mueller report imply for Trump and his administration? Is it a vindication for the President, with no sign of conspiracy or collusion, and was the whole expensive investigation a witch hunt intended to undermine the Executive? The report though did not draw a conclusion, one way or another as to whether there was obstruction. What do you think? What has the whole report shown and who should see the unredacted version? Is the President in a stronger or weaker position now, or has nothing actually changed? Should the Democrats seek to impeach, or would that be a charge too far? After 9.20, thoughts after the mass bombings in Sri Lanka.

    Freedom in Hong Kong / "Add Oil"

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Mike Rowse

    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? 

    More or less free? Call us with your take on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk, or leave a message on our Facebook page, Backchat on RTHK Radio 3.

     "Add oil" after 9:20, the latest Cantonese phrase to be included in the Oxford English Dictionary.
