Mac’s revelations at conference make smallscreen

| 15/02/2011

(CNS): The speech in which the premier made a list of announcements regarding his latest proposed projects at last month’s CBO conference will be televised this evening. McKeeva Bush used the presentation to reveal his hopes for the coming year, including the construction of a channel in the North Sound, a new ‘techy’ business zone and the revelation that Dart would be tackling the old dump. Organisers of the conference also said that the panel discussion, “Things Tough! So Don’t Cut My Pay, Tax Me Less & Give Me More Free Services. And Do Something about Crime…Education…and Jobs. And What About Those Expats?”, which scored well with the audience and post event bloggers would also be aired. (Photo Dennie Warren Jr)

The show will be broadcast on CITN Channel 27 on Tuesday 15 February at 8pm, when those who were unable to attend the Fidelity’s Cayman Business Outlook at the Ritz , have the opportunity to listed to the premier’s list of announcements.

CITN General Manager Mike Martin said that covering local events was an important community service. “It is our mission as a news, educational and entertainment provider to present a broad spectrum of information to the people of the Cayman Islands. We are therefore very happy to facilitate a wider audience for the most pertinent aspects of this year’s Cayman Business Outlook in a special 2-hour broadcast to the nation,” he said.

Given what Fidelity Group chairman Anwer Sunderji said was the importance of Bush’s speech, it should be shared with a broader audience. Grateful that for the first time more Caymanians will have access to some of the important content from CBO, he said, it would make for good television viewing.

    Great job Mac! Looking forward to a good future for these islands!

    Here is a challenge to all…before you blog silly, anti-Government, anti-Caymanian things ask yourself two questions….

    WHAT HAVE I DONE TO MAKE CAYMAN BETTER TODAY?
    WHAT HAVE I GIVEN TO MY COUNTRY TODAY?

    If you can answer positively, go ahead and blog. If not, get off the computer and go out and help your community and Government make things better.

    Hope you get my point.

      Anti-Mckeeva is not equal to anti-government.  Complaining demonstrates to other people reading the amount of frustration out there, it helps galvanize people to do something.  Your expecting everyone to be a leader, otherwise put their head in the sand.

    The Premier is doing a good job and means well for these islands unlike what some of his critics portray him to be.

    THE PREMIER HAS BROUGHT US HOPE!

    The construction of a channel in the North Sound, a new ‘techy’ business zone, the revelation that Dart would be tackling the old dump coupled with the Doctor Shetty plans of medical tourism, and the upgraded Cruise Berthing Facility to come – are all good developments for Cayman’s economy and increased employment.

    I CAN’T SEE HOW ANYONE CAN SAY THIS IS BAD FOR THE CAYMAN ISLANDS, AND WILL RUIN OUR ECONOMY! THE PREMIER IS A MAN OF ACTION AND SOON IT WILL BE CLEARLY SEEN HE IS NOT JUST A MAN OF TALK! ALREADY, HE ACCOMPLISHED ALOT DURING HIS TRAVELS.

      Dear Tina, please wake up and smell the coffee.

      MORE GARBAGE AND DOUBLE TALK FROM A CON MAN WHO HAS DONE NOTHING FOR HIS COUNTRY OR HIS PEOPLE

      Please name what he has actually done in the past two years because talk is just that talk and the real facts are that he has pulled absolutely nothing off, because none of what he has said or promised has eventuated.

        Let me give you a hint ‘Anonymous 23:23’, the GLOBAL ECONOMIC SLOWDOWN. It takes great amounts of time during the many planning stages and addressing/amending issues before work on the physical aspects of each project can commence.

        Do you recall the amount of time that transpired from discussions/planning by the UDP for the new high schools (which then taken over by the PPM) to the time the physical work commenced on the two of the three sites?

        • Anonymous says:

          AHA… so it was the UDP that originated the schools that they somehow managed to blame the PPM out of existence for for bringing their own projects to fruition? A crafty bunch, I must say. And still they fully intend to take full credit for these while insisting that the PPM were wrong in moving them forward??? Yet what have THEY done for this country apart from disgracing the PPM for what EVERYONE, including and especially them, agrees are worthwhile and imperative projects? I hate to say this but most Caymanians (I am PROUD to say that I am a Caymanian) are like cows that are quite happy to go to whatever pasture that is supposed to bring them more grass without having to THINK FOR THEMSELVES.

      man of action???? have you been living under a rock for the past 2 years?

      • Anonymous says:

        You have to remember, my friend that there are different KINDS of action. There is positive action and negative action, there is ‘non’ action and ‘re’ action as well as ‘late’ action and ‘self serving’ action and ‘dissatisf’ action and and ‘satisf’ action and ‘trans’ action and ‘in’ action and ‘pro’ action and ‘con’ action and many more. Come to think of it though, he may really have been living under a rock…I believe that is called ‘subtr’ action.

    cannot believe the media has been duped by this smoke and mirrors trick…..

    at a conference where mckeeva should have been asked hard questions about the economic decline of the caymans key industries…he gets away by listing more pie in the sky ideas….

    mckeeva has been making the same big annoucements for the past 2 years…and what has got done?…nothing!

    why do the ‘journalists’ of cayman not follow up on his long list broken promises?

    • anonymous says:

      yes mac, dupe us with your many ideas to better the cayman islands. when the ppm was in they ran out of ideas and brought the country into serious debt. yes… dupe us and give us the mirror of hope, because we (the people who will vote you back in) wholeheartedly believe that all of your ideas will come to pass ;o)

        We would like to believe you have been duped, although we find it seriously hard to believe that you actually have enough brains to be duped. There we have it Cayman, a typical UDP supporter.

    • Son of Thunder says:

      It was bad enough hearing what he had to say at the conference, there is no way in hell I am going to waste my time and sit thru & listen to that garbage (& destructive proposals) again. It was sad enough the first time, & I am crying for Cayman.
