On Thursday's Backchat, privacy laws. A video featuring celebrities Andy Hui and Jacqueline Wong filmed kissing inside a taxi has sparked a range of responses. Many companies, and even government agencies, have released adverts slyly alluding to the incident, and Andy Hui's tearful press conference. But its still not clear if anyone has broken the law - the taxi driver who filmed the couple, and then reportedly sold it to Apple Daily? The newspaper for posting the video online? Are such cameras allowed in any case? Should there be guidelines on filming inside taxis? Are the memes just a little cheeky, or bad taste exploitation of a marital crisis? After 9.20, how to restore Notre Dame in Paris.

On Monday's Backchat, a free economy. The Heritage Foundation has ranked Hong Kong the world's freest economy for 25 consecutive years. What does that mean though, and how do you judge freedom? What about indirect taxes, and inequality? What about the monopolies here in some fields? With free education, public healthcare and extensive public housing are we more socialist than capitalist? Are we a model for the world, or a warning? And will integration into the Greater Bay Area, run on a top-down approach, mean the end of our freedom? After 9.20, what to do with electronic waste?
