    The programme today came live from the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham. We interviewed the Home Secretary, Teresa May, about her new plans to tackle extremism. Dominic Grieve, who until recently was the Attorney General, warned that they risked being seen as 'draconian' and could have the unintended outcome of encouraging extremism. The Mayor of London and prospective parliamentary candidate for Uxbridge, Boris Johnson, spoke to us after addressing the conference and we debated whether the ongoing protests on the streets of Hong Kong fully represented popular opinion on the ground.
