On Tuesday's Backchat: we're following up the latest on the extradition bill. How should the CE respond to calls for her resignation? Why are so many young people so so wary of China? Is it time for an independent investigation of police action last week? Does our whole system of political representation need changing? How much responsibility lies with the advisers, civil servants and Executive Councillors who so misread the mood in Hong Kong? Will Beijing continue to support Mrs.Lam?
8:30- 9:30 Suspension of Extradition Bill

On Monday's Backchat, digging Kowloon Park. The government is consulting on a plan to develop 340,000 square feet of the park - about 25% of the total, with five floors of facilities, accommodating an all-weather and barrier-free underground pedestrian network. Community space, retail/food and beverage and car-parking facilities are also included in the scheme 'to address imminent needs and enhance the use of underground space'. Will it make it easier to move around the area? Do we actually need more shops in TST? What sort of disturbance will there be during construction? Will the plan disrupt the environment or enjoyment of urban parks?
After 9.20, review of EU Elections.
