Rewriting The Hong Kong Story / Patrick Ho’s Bribery and Money-laundering Case & Arrest of Huawei CF 00:59:00 2018-12-07
On Friday's Backchat, rewriting the Hong Kong story. A new book 'No Third Person' by Christine Loh and academic Richard Cullen says that Hong Kong must first and foremost accept the People's Republic for what it is today and work towards national betterment. A new narrative, according to the authors, needs to explain and portray a compelling future, and neutral political space can be created for policy dialogue, whether full universal suffrage is achieved or not in the medium term. What do you think of the idea of a fresh future, informed, but not constrained by the colonial past? Is this giving up? Is it realism? Is it a window for hope? What part should Beijing play in writing the story?

After 9.20, the former Home Affairs Secretary Patrick Ho's bribery and money-laundering case.
