On Backchat we talk about Chris Patten. The ex-Governor is back, talking about political reform, independence and the rule of law. Do you welcome his take, or is he making trouble? For some in Hong Kong he's surrounded by a nostalgic glow, for others he's an unwanted colonial hangover. Is he right to say that Chief Executives will always need to stand up to Beijing? Have we reached peak Patten, or do you think his insights are still relevant? After 9.20, illegal parking tickets.
