[Cross-strait Express Comment No. 533]
The Taiwan compatriots have won the long-term Chinese New Year overtime flight, and finally got the consent of Taiwan. According to the website of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, the cross-strait aviation authorities have recently responded to the 2020 Spring Festival overtime issues and specific arrangements. The two sides agreed that the two sides of the straits airlines can arrange for Spring Festival overtime from January 11 to February 8, 2020, and There is no limit to the total amount of overtime.
2020 cross-strait Spring Festival overtime flights can be described as ups and downs , because the Spring Festival of the Year of the Rat is earlier than in previous years, January 24 is New Year's Eve, and January 11 is the polling day for the election of leaders in Taiwan. Therefore, the National Taiwan Enterprise Federation as early as this year Zhang Luo started the matter in September. They negotiated cross-strait airlines to provide preferential fares, and immediately received a goodwill response from Continental Airlines, but got stuck in the Taiwan authorities.
First in November, the Taiwan civil aviation authority explicitly rejected the Taiwan businessmen ’s request for an extension of the overtime flight during the Spring Festival in 2020. Then, in early December, the DPP authorities once again stated that the Taiwan compatriots ’request for" voting charter flights "had once again stated "No." The Taiwan authorities' simple and rude refusal to facilitate the return of Taiwan compatriots has caused public opinion on the island to question: What is Cai Yingwen afraid of?
Is it because most of these Taiwan compatriots who invest and work in the mainland " invest in blue but not green "? Is it because of the majestic reason that "the charter plane should be left to the market to decide"? Are the "democracy" that the DPP is proud of, and those words that speak loudly to the people, all just gimmicks?
Maybe it can't bear the pressure of public opinion and public opinion, or maybe it's because the election is about to be close to the people ... In short, the DPP authorities have now agreed with the request of Taiwan compatriots for the overtime flight, which made this piece not originally Things that need to go through such twists and turns have had a relatively satisfactory result.
However, behind these bright surface efforts, compatriots on both sides of the strait look at it, but it is the farce that "Taiwan 31 must pass the" reverse osmosis method "" that Cai Yingwen is forcibly advancing on the island. If this "law" is passed, then the mainland will be Taiwan's "quasi-enemy country." Those Taiwan compatriots who take charter flights during the Spring Festival and often travel to and from the two sides of the strait are high-risk groups regarded by the DPP as "communist treason."
For the Taiwan compatriots, the Spring Festival charter was originally just a very ordinary and normal trivial matter of people's livelihood, but under the repeated manipulation of the DPP authorities, it has a pungent political smell . Just like this quote from the Taiwan media: "The DPP has almost hypnotically made Taiwanese people overly proud of having democratic elections, but is not assured of mainland Taiwanese businessmen who have grown up in Taiwan." The ugly face of the DPP's "false democracy" We have long seen no surprises. We just hope that in the future, if there are any issues involving people's livelihood, the Taiwan authorities will be more sincere and less routine.
