Editorial: Leaving Lien Chan in the footnotes

The problem is that Lien’s latest jaunt highlights again the lack of transparency that has been the hallmark of Ma’s cross-strait policies and engagements. When so little is openly discussed and the results of negotiations so often presented as a fait accompli, the public has no way of knowing who or what to believe.

So people are left “over-interpreting” comments by politicians in and out of government — or reading tea leaves — to try and figure out what might be going on. Unfortunately, that is nothing to yawn about.
