On Friday's Backchat, Beijing and extradition laws. The central government's liaison office said in a statement on Wednesday that the government's proposed changes have "sufficient legal basis" , and it's reported that CPG officials have also urged the pro-Beijing camp members to voice their support for and explain the law amendment by placing advertisements and penning articles in newspapers as well as setting up street booths. Carrie Lam meanwhile says that calls to shelve the bill are “almost impossible at this juncture”. Is Beijing's increased role making things better or worse? Where does it leave the CE and her administration? Leave a message below and we’ll try and read it out on air. Or email us at email@example.com or call us on 23388266.
