Former President Lee Teng-hui yesterday trashed the joint-statement issued by President Chen Shui-bian and People First Party Chairman James Soong following their recent reconciliatory meeting.
Lee said he was not against Chen holding a meeting with Soong to restore political stability, but it was “ridiculous” and “illegitimate” for the head of state to issue a 10-point joint-statement with the “chairman of a tiny party.”[/quote]
Fearless Spiritual Leader sounds a little bitter here. I’m sure if LTH was actually a chairperson in any of the 100 or so political parties on Taiwan, he would have been more than happy to sign the 10 point agreement with his former second in command, Soong.
I wonder if his trip to Japan was timed to keep him away from the Chen-Soong deal.
[quote]The TSU has threatened to break ties with the DPP, saying the two parties would “go separate ways.”
But the DPP will not be the TSU’s only partners in the Legislature, Lo said[/quote]
Come to mama TSU. The KMT will be more than happy to speak with the Spiritual Leader. Muhahahaha, I’m sure we can dig up a KMT comfy chair from a bygone era for Fearless Spiritual Leader.
I’m sure Soong of the PFP would also love to have a secret private meeting with his ex-boss as well. Water under the bridge I hear from 2 presidential elections ago.
If the DPP would come to their sense in work with both the KMT and PFP, drop TI, they would have a majority in the LY already.
The TSU can also get a majority if they drop TI and work with the KMT and PFP. It’ll be like old time. LTH, Lien, Soong all cooperating for the greater good of Taiwan. Am I the only one getting misty eye with the prospect of this dream team?
