    You said it 0:31  we are not going to roll over and play dead.  I do hope The UK plans to treat us with the same respect we have given her over the years,  Flying the Flag and standing to attention singing God save the Queen.

    Now we the perople of Cayman will sit back fold our arms and wait and see what they will do.
