On Monday's Backchat, the National Security Law.
Guangdong official Zheng Yanxiong, who handled the Wukan protests of 2011, has been appointed director of Hong Kong's powerful new national security agency, while liaison office chief Luo Huining will be Beijing's adviser on the national security committee. Does this lessen the power of the CE?
In what ways will the new legislation address the political problem in Hong Kong? Will the timely enactment of the law for Hong Kong boost business confidence?

After a long break, Kevin Lewis is back on Sunday nights on Radio 3 from 14 June. As usual the focus is on new music; crafted, chilled and soulful sounds ideal for late night on Sunday. Kevin's been busy collecting some fine new albums to feature, and here’s a selection of what's planned for the next few weeks.
The British R&B and jazz singer Tony Momrelle is one of the current lead vocalists of the very excellent acid jazz band Incognito. “The Best is Yet to come”, his latest solo offering, follows up his 2015 “Keep Pushing” which was featured heavily on Sunday Late.
Trinidadian bass guitarist and songwriter, Tony Wilson was best known for his time with soul and funk band Hot Chocolate. This rare 1992 collection, issued before he passed away in 2007, features less well known solo material and tracks that Tony wrote or produced with other artists.
Kandace Springs is an American jazz and soul singer and pianist. This is her third album, released in March, and follows up “Soul Eyes” and “Indigo” both of which were featured on Sunday Late in 2018.
Jhené Aiko’s third album, “Chilombo” was recorded in Hawaii, and inspired by the island's natural landscape and features traditional singing bowls. The album featured a range of guests including rappers Nas, Ty Dolla $ign and Future, as well as R&B singers John Legend, Miguel, and H.E.R..
You can enjoy all this and much more in the coming weeks with Kevin on Sunday Late (10pm - 2am).
