Dr Frank appears at PPM rally

| 08/05/2012

dr frank ppm (251x300).jpg(CNS): Former UDP Cabinet minister Dr Frank McField received a warm welcome when he appeared as a surprise guest on the platform of a PPM political rally in Savannah on Monday night. The controversial character called for his former party colleague’s resignation and condemned comments made recently by Ellio Solomon that if the premier had done something wrong in connection with the Stan Thomas affair and land re-zoning, then the rest of his Cabinet colleagues did too. McField said that it was McKeeva Bush not the other Cabinet members that wrote to the developer demanding money as he called for a return of integrity to politics.

McField offered his appreciation and support to the opposition leader for inviting him to the PPM meeting. He said he welcomed McLaughlin’s move to reach out to a broader coalition of people that would be able to take the country back “to begin a new phase of honesty and prosperity for the Cayman Islands,” McField said.

The former minister for sports, gender and community affairs in the UDP’s first government accused Bush of forming the UDP as a tool merely to ensure he would remain as leader until he decided to retire, because clearly he “had no use for a political party”, McField said. He said that up until a few months ago he continued to try and offer the premier advice on how he could solve some of the economic and social challenges we have in the island but to no avail.

Although the premier is consistently blaming others for Cayman’s economic stagnation, McField said, the real reason for the country’s economic woes was down to politicians putting their own interests before the interests of the country.

“It’s these actions that cause people to become suspicious and trigger off investigations, that cause people to believe politicians are benefitting from deals being made,” he said. McField pointed to the dock, the hospital and other projects where he said people now had a feeling that had become entrenched that the politicians were looking after themselves and making something from the deals while the considerations of the country came long after.

He explained that when the Stan Thomas land came to Cabinet for re-zoning it was passed to facilitate plans for a resort to create jobs and boost the economy but none of the other Cabinet members asked him for money. “None of us wrote any letter to any developer demanding any sum of money for that particular act,” McField said, referring to himself, Gilbert McLean, Juliana O’Connor-Connolly and Roy Bodden, who were the elected Cabinet members at the time alongside Bush. “Nobody should have profited from that …”

McField said he has already called on his former party colleagues in the UDP to ask the premier to retire as leader of the party and as leader of the government because it is “their responsibility under the party constitution to make sure that he is disciplined and dealt with” and allow the party constitution to function.

“But nobody there seems to have the courage,” he said. “Nobody there seems to have the courage to stand up against Big Mac.”

McField’s surprise appearance was well received by the PPM party faithful at a meeting, which attracted around 300 people. Among others that lined up on the PPM platform was Woody DaCosta, who is one of seven new recruits that has expressed an interest in running on the PPM party ticket at the next election, if selected by the party membership.

He said it was time for people to unify and come together to address what he said would be grim times ahead. Da Costa said the new constitution provided new opportunities for more autonomy but it was being abused. The petition on one man, one vote showed that the people had a voice and should not accept being ignored. 

The potential West Bay candidate said that although the odds were stacked against the referendum after it was hi-jacked by government, it was still not impossible, as he urged everyone to come out and vote. However, he said that if the referendum day was lost, the people could hold government accountable in May 2013.

    Let me put it in a nutshell. The sad fact is that by inviting “Dr” McField to speak, the PPM has shown in one move that it so lacks judgment that it is as unqualified to govern as the UDP is. This is a truly worrying situation. There is no party worth voting for. What the hell do we do?

      As I understand it Frank McField invited himself to speak, but I agree that it was bad judgement to let him.

    You people need to releaze that UDP can't exist without PPM, and PPM can't exist without UDP. They need each other to make themselves known. It is an ego-power struggle with the poor people in the middle. Do you ever hear of POLITICAL PROPAGANDA?!  Get use to it, because the two-party system is just that.

      Has this Dr. Frank explained how he was shot?

      Or did he shoot himself?

      Was the gun licensed?

      Was the gun used in other gang crimes?

      I really dont think this is the type of person PPM should have speaking at their Rally – next they will have some notorious gangster up there.

      How desperate are you when your guest speaker is a rejected politician who was recently shot and can't tell the Police who shot him or even who carried him to the hospital?

    Such a suck-up that Dr Frank is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did he come to tell the public who shot him?

     Why in  the God's world would PPM want a man like that to join their platform?

    How can anybody possibly trust the PPM and Dr Frank working together.? 

    Alden needs to put one of the biggest band-aids he can find over his mouth. His mouth is forever going blah blah blah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and saying nothing.

    PPM did nothing when they were in power but waste our funds and cant stand to see someone else trying to make a bad situation a little better for the people of these islands.

    Well I could tell one thing for sure that PPM couldn't buy my vote if they paid me all the money that the wasted when they were in power much less me giving it to them so they could get back in and finish crippling us.

    Most of the people that are siding with them if they got back into power they wouldn't give you the time of the day much less rescue from any distress you are in. They are USERS.

    I feel like my feeble and misplaced hopes for a strong oppostion have finally been dashed to pieces in a miserable heap of hypocrisy, implied insults to the intelligence of the electorate, and a complete lack of political judgement. I feel sick and I feel abused. And I  feel sad, truly deeply sad. We deserved so much better.

    I understand Dr. Frank was invited to speak, he came and expressed his concern on the issue at hand. Individuals from a cross section of the island attended the meeting which shows me that many people are troubled over the way this country is heading. When something is right, Dr Frank will support it and when something appears wrong he will show his concern regardless of who is being investigated.

      22.34. You're completely missing the point. In this case the medium was the message. What people will remember is that the PPM thought it appropriate to have Dr Frank, with so many serious and unresolved issues hanging over him like a cloud from a factory chimney, address their members on matters of corruption and integrity,  issues on which he might well claim to be an expert, I fully agree. The political judgement involved here is so inept, it necessarily casts a long shadow over the whole PPM enterprise. You only have to read these blogs to see how this has been seen by some  PPM supporters, who are feeling desperate now.  We all know politicians can make perfect sense when they want something, but a surer indication of their intentions lies in their track record.

    • Dred says:

      We can always say what we want to say about people but Dr Frank (when not off the deep edge) does speak very intelligently and with great knowledge of the UDP machine.

      I see nothing wrong with allowing him to speak on his knowledge at the meeting. It's not like we are granting him a humanitarian award. We are requesting that all of this STOPS HERE AND NOW. Hell I believe if we had a current UDP member who wanted to speak as to why the leader shoudl step down he would be allowed to do so.

      What you fail to GET is the fact that this is no longer about UDP, PPM or INDEPENDENT this friend is about OUR COUNTRY. You think this recession was anything? Wait til you see the UK running us.

      We need this to end. We need the UDP members to see the LIGHT. No one really wants the whole UDP team to step down. All that is being asked is that the PREMIER step down and the UDP can maintain running the government.

    Let's be clear. Dr. Frank did NOT appear at that meeting as a future candidate. His appearance was simply about him explaining the part he did not have to play in the whole Stan Thomas deal as Elio insinuated on Crosstalk last Friday morning that all cabinet members at that time were party to McKeeva's shenanigans.

    • Anonymous says:

      Yes, well the PPM should have left Frank to the call in shows to give his explanations there. It was incredible that someone thought that giving Frank air time at the PPM launch to show ‘new faces ‘ was a good idea! Besides who cares about his explanation in not being involved in the Stan Thomas affair? If he wants to explain something tell him to explain who shot him and dumped him off at the GT hospital! Come on Alden, time to up your game, not lower it!!

If this is a dream, someone please dont bother me cause I am enjoying the laugh. I too am no supporter or fan of the UDP- however they (UDP) must be rejoicing with this shenanigan! Is this real? CNS are you sure (and I know the story is correct) that you reporter heard correctly and reported the facts. LOL……….this is politics at its best. So guess what, the PPM are now just as discredited as the UDP, when they (PPM) can associate themselves with someone who refuses to talk to the Police- the same thing they are lambasting McKeeva for not doing. Frank McFiled was shot in the leg and to this, as far as we know has not been forthcoming to the RCIPS. So I say to the PPM, STOP the tirade on Big Mac and demand the same answers now from you apparent new member. Oh by the way, where was Wayne? XXXX. In closing, I have heard that Lucille and Fonso wants to join the UDP in George Town. Any credibility to this????

    For Dr. Frank to seriously desire to reenter the public arena he must get honest with the circumstances around his shooting. It is beyond belief that any voter would or could simply overlook that serious incident. 

    Until there is a public airing of the incident negative speculation will abound and his future in public service is unlikely.

      Let  us get one thing straight, Dr. Frank McField will never be a PPM candidate in any electoral division. He only spoke because he is so ashamed of the way that Mac is abusing the office and position of the Premier of the Cayman Islands. For Alden to give Frank that opportunity to speak at that meeting, is a brave gesture of selflessness, from a modern leader, nothing more! Nothing less!

Tell you the truth, in these trying times I'm double-tea bagging on Earl Gray every morning to try to calm my nerves, and I guess I'm getting pretty wired up as a result, along with my imagination, hence the wild suggestion about Dr.Frank cleaning his Beretta at 2 o'clock in the morning whilst sat in his DB5 (and maybe toying with the idea of hitting that gear knob button even). One thing's for sure, whatever mission Dr.Frank was on that night must have been pretty top secret for him to have remained so tight-lipped on the matter.

    You know, I have been reading Dr. Frank's comments and listening to him on Rooster lately and he has some valid, intelligent points, observations and ideas.  I say to the voting public, please do not condemn Dr. Frank just yet, he may have and has had some personal issues, but that does not warrant total condemnation.  I know he had a raw deal with the housing when he was UDP, but he did a heck of a job with the Prison system, as he is a Socialist more than anything.  Everyone deserves another chance, like Bill Clinton's and Mckeeva's had many chances.  How many chances have you given McKeeva?  Think about that!  Dr. Frank is no worse than Mr. Bush, trust me on that.  George Towners you decide, Ellio or Dr. Frank?  May you, Dr. Frank on the otherhand, make those changes and learn from your past mistakes, same to all the PPM candidates too.  You guys were over ambitious with the schools, the CIG Building, the Roads, the Boxing Gym, the new Licensing Dept, but you were only proceeding according to the figures that the Financial Secretary was giving you.  Next time, by all means continue to strengthen the infrastructure, get ALL of the Government books audited from 2001 upwards, to current and then proceed.  I think the figures after 2009 was more like $18mio deficit than $81mio deficit, but that is yet to be proven.  Do not blame, just get on with the job at hand. I know it will be a tangled web to clear up, but steadfastenly proceed.  Stay humble PPM, stay straight and only collect your salaries.  No briberies, no favours for money and most of all, put Country first over self. May God guide you all deligently.

    Isn’t it interesting to see Frank and Alden in bed together, under the political covers, in a warm embrace of convenience; Is Alden not the one who accused Frank of corruption, from status grants to housing, and is it not Frank who complained so bitterly that the PPM destroyed his political carrier after Alden and others had him investigated for some 4 years. He complained how the police came to his house and seized his computer etc. I remember this quite clearly. The revelation is, PPM is all about power, and when you are hungry for power anyone will do. I consider this a marriage of desperation, PPM desperate for power and Frank desperate for attention.

He did alot of good for his people when he was in, and he used some of the best on his comittee etc etc. But thats how it go Bo Bo they put you in and they take you out , its not for ever. But nobody should under estimate Dr Frank because he is going to be a winner this time regardless of which side he is on. People dont forget the help given by him during the Ivan Hurricane and after. Frank could be seen on the back of trucks taking stuff as far as West Bay. Go for it Frank, and Beulah you can be a winner too.

          Bo Bo! Bo Bo must be the cry of a haunted man. No worries, the 2009 election numbers of Dr. Frank should wake you up from that nightmare and bring you back to reality, the reality that his chances of getting re-elected is indeed a shot in dark at best, to say the least. Also FYI: Dr. Frank’s back of the truck rides was no display of humanitarianism but use-my-power-to-help-myself entrepreneurism at best, afterall those trucks were his, compliments of the same Italian group he used to build cheap metalic affordable homes, yes, imagine that, waste millions of tax payers dollars on over-priced sardine cans and then give yourself a contract to clear trash after the worst natural disaster that these islands have ever seen, now thats what I call a double whammy display of how to capitalize on the people’s suffering. THAT was grounds for an investigation and as some may say “he is shooting from the hip” or “it takes one to know one”. So who’s gonna get elected again Dr. Who? Dr. Frank? oh no Bo Bo.

      Arden Mclean (East End PPM) continues to come out with joint statements with Ezzard (independent) including one where they were going to London together to complain about the government. In a subsequent interview the PPM leader (Alden Mclauglin) admitted at that point he had not even been asked to go to London and that he was not sure what it would achieve.

      The East End MLA is certainly acting in ways that are embarrassing to the PPM leadership whether they admit to it or not.  Maybe Arden is still upset he did not get the leadership position. I cant see him getting the Deputy leader of the PPM now either.
