On Monday's Backchat,, we're talking about the latest developments in the extradition bill controversy.
An uneasy sort of calm broken out this weekend, with Carrie Lam silent and invisible, but senior officials promising the administration will learn from its mistakes, and urging people to look and move forward together.
In fact the DAB is suggesting that the Government to completely withdraw the extradition bill, although the FTU disagrees. There are also growing calls for an inquiry into police action, and then there's the question of how police should respond to the unprecedented 15 hour siege of their headquarters on Friday.
As another working week starts, where do we stand? Will nothing much happen until the G20, and perhaps July 1st? Are calls to retract the bill meaningless, as Legislator Tam Yiu-chung says, or meaningful? Will there be any resignations or reshuffles? Do you accept the apologies and trust that something will change?
We'll be joined as usual by a panel of guests. But as always we also want to know what you think. Leave a message here and we’ll try and read it out on air. Or you can send us an email at email@example.com, or call us on 23388266.

Government plans to amend the extradition laws that will allow hand over fugitives to mainland China, Taiwan and Macau, are being criticised by pan dems and pro-business forces.
