On Monday's Backchat, National Security Law legislation in Hong Kong.
The Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office said on Friday that Beijing’s move to enact a national security law for Hong Kong is "timely, necessary and very important", while the CE said it doesn't amend the Basic Law and that judicial independence will not be damaged. Pan-democrats are concerned at the plan to 'establish sound legal systems and enforcement mechanisms'; including Mainland security agencies operating in the Special Administrative Region.
Are you concerned, or relieved? Is this the end of One Country Two Systems?

On Wednesday's Backchat, the Fugitive Offenders Bill. After another chaotic meeting, the different camps in Legco are looking for a way out of deadlock at the bills committee on extradition laws. Democratic Party lawmaker James To, who the pro-democracy camp say has already been elected as chair of the bills committee, called for a tripartite meeting between his camp, their rivals and government officials. A convenor of the pro-government camp, Martin Liao, said they are open to dialogue. Is this the way forward? Is the Government hurrying unduly? What do you think of Legco's performance?
