On Tuesday's Backchat, more on the 'Fugitive Offenders' controversy. 21 legal academics from the Scholars' Alliance for Academic Freedom last month initiated a signature campaign against the Government's proposed law change, worrying that fugitives would be extradited before a fair trial in the jurisdiction concerned was guaranteed. Many business organisations and foreign chambers of commerce also oppose aspects of the deal, which the CE now says will go ahead even if it is not effective in Taiwan . What's the future of the proposal?
After 9.20, a review of the Thai general election.

On Friday's Backchat, bus safety. The government-appointed Independent Review Committee on franchised bus services has released a report with 45 suggestions on making bus travel safer. They include better working conditions for drivers and shorter hours; tougher actions against passengers who argue with drivers; more seat belts, speed linmiters and other devices. Will they work, and are you happy about safety? What about the 7% fare rise too?
