      Nothing matters here on Cayman, especially the law and good governance, accountability, responsibility and fiscal prudence. At least those awarded are acknowledged to buck the normal trend and have actually done good in their lives for the betterment of Cayman. It's easy to sit and criticise or pour scorn on a culture and tradition, its much harder to earn the respect needed to get that award or be acknowledged as a worthy member of society. What did you do today that has bettered the lives of others? Didn't think so.

      Jacky Backside from Oldbush. Your just jealous. Stop it and I say be nice now.   If you had gotten one your mouth would not be able to hold you teeth with the smile.  Live and let others live.

    Er, the "British Empire" no longer exists. What a load of old bollocks. (Pardon my French.)

      I wish you were right, but unfotunately it does and its current incarnation is more insidious than all of the previous versions put together.

      One of their greatest successes is convincing us otherwise, but there you have it.
