    It's really a shame that people of GC think they're in any kind of position to cast dispersions on their fellow countrymen whose only "crime" is living on one of the other 2/3rds of land known as Cayman IslandS.  The west end of Grand Cayman and Georgetown has become little more than Miami Jr., especially in light of the sadly desperateclamoring for berthing facilities.  The bright, proudly vibrant colors which used to mark a wonderfully unique culture continue to fade in the bleaching of uncontrolled, money-at-all-costs, tourism.

     

    At least it hasn't affected the East End, Little Cayman or Brac so terribly.  I plainly admit that I'm an American who is a Caymanophile, travelling to GC and Brac a couple of times a year for many years now.  So my view is that of someone looking in from without.  In my time in Cayman, I've met wonderful people on all three islands.  But there's something special about Bractitude, as I call it. 

     

    At the end of the day, however, my good Caymanian friends, the rest of the world looks at you as one people.  You're all Caymanian.  Remember that and act like it.  This divisiveness is silly and baseless.

    Just imagine if we all put this much energy (anger) into stomping out crime in Grand Cayman?

    If you want to know how much ridiculous hatred there can be between the islanders just read the comments under any headlines in the News Service having to do with the Brac.

      Some attribute it to the narcissism of small differences. 

      Others just think we are bored of how much the Brac sponges off Grand Cayman in various subsidies.  If Brackers were as proud and wonderful as they say they would not want the people of Grand Cayman to prop up their attempt at an economy.

        I'm from GC and our islands' social services is greatly burdened with supporting status holders and others so if the Brac needs help then they must get it. GC also has many people receiving help from Govt.Take all the non-Caymanians and status holders off social services and the needy ones from the Brac, LC & GC would get what they deserve.  It seems that peope who come here think they are entitled to everything and Caymanians must do without.

        What a load of rubbish, we would have a better economy if it was managed by the Brac. All revenue collected on the Brac goes to treasury on Grand Cayman, then about 1/4 of it is given back for porjects on the Brac. So how can you say we are sponging off you, you obviously do not have aidea of what is going on, do some research, and stop believing what your  XXXX politicians are telling you, XXXX. Push come to shove, we can survive, like we did days gone by, on the land and sea, but not you, you will perish without the trappings of the modern life; you are spoiled and selfish, and like putting the blame of your extravagance on the Brac people, you would not even have a economy if it was not for the intellegent Brackers that started it all over there, so read some history before you open your big mouth

      Some expats like to entertain their little minds by pretending to be Caymanians or others and make negative stupid remarks, then sit back and feed their idle brains with the responses.  So my message to fellow Caymanians:don't comment when you see anything negative purporting to come from one islander to the other — you are probably just entertaining that idle xxxxxx expat who also thinks he has something to gain by this sick behaviour.  Stand proud – we are family.

    Let me tell you a secret.  It is very simple.  The Brac police know who the local thieves are so they pick them up take them in for questioning and they admit their guilt.  Simple.

    Maybe the Brac police could teach the Grand Cayman police how to fight crime.

      Maybe the Brac police should ask the Grand Cayman police about the number of crimes committed by criminals out on bail.

      We  have TV's, fax machines, satelite dishes, scan and copy machines, computer's etc, etc. And some fancy cars to boot, we just do not have the amount of thieves and murdering trigger happy criminals that you have, where ever you are from, I assume it is Grand Cayman, you should start counting the amount of people leaving that place, then you will have something to do, you  ignorant person

          Same country, different island, pity we are not seperated 300 miles instead of 120; the day will come when we will be a seperate crown colony, as your crime riddled island will soon seek independance, cant wait, you and big MAC will be  happy then, dont come running over here for peace and quiet, you will not be welcome, and there is only so much TV's to go around, especially the flat screens. Monday's news will be telling of more gun crime again on your nice GRAND CAYMAN, you only wish it was like the Brac, you should move here to experience the difference, bet you will not want to go back
