Mac remains defiant

| 15/12/2012

_DEW4940-web2(3).jpg(CNS): The Cayman Islands premier returned home from Jamaica late Friday night insisting that he would remain in office regardless of his arrest this week. McKeeva Bush, who is now on police bail until February, once again accused the governor of being “vindictive and petty” as he insisted his arrest and the police investigations were a political witch hunt as a result of his standing up to the UK. Despite his determination not to step down, Bush may be forced out of office as speculation mounted Friday that cracks were appearing in the caucus loyalty. It is understood that some of the UDP parliamentary group are preparing to ask him to resign from both the party leadership and Cabinet. 

Since the revelations last year that the premier was the subject of three police probes, his party colleagues had thrown their support behind their leader. However, the rest of the UDP’s elected officials have remained silent since the short statement from the deputy premier’s office Tuesday morning, a few hours after Bush's arrest at his home in West Bay. The UDP members of the Legislative Assembly said they recognised the gravity of the situation and they were in discussions and that a statement would be released in due course.

That due course has stretched across four days, and after another closed door meeting all day Friday the party has still not made any public comment about the situation the party now finds itself in.

There are a number of scenarios that could now unfold but it will be a matter for the eight UDP parliamentarians to make decisions on who will replace Bush as premier and who will take up his ministry if he returns to the back bench. However, if the party is not in agreement in its opposition to Bush remaining in office or in supporting him in the top job, the UDP benches will split, leaving government in disarray.

If the UDP cannot maintain a majority then it could seek to form a coalition with the independent or opposition members, which is an unlikely outcome. The most likely scenario if the eight members of the UDP cannot stay united either in support of or against Bush will be the dissolution of parliament by the governor and early elections.

The opposition leader filed his no confidence motion with the speaker of the LA, Mary Lawrence, Friday, along with a letter requesting thatshe call an emergency meeting of the House in order to force the UDP to take a position one way or the other.

    So three years and months later, Still PPM to blame. Alden what did you do, Kurt, Arden, what is it that you done so bad that every thing is still your fault. Some PPM must have spiked Rolly KoolAid while he was having his meeting at the bar. Miss Ju Ju, must have been tied on top of the roller on the driveway by the PPM, Elio  now that is another whole different ball game  suitation. Mike, you were such an example of a fine Gentleman before you loss all your pride, gave up country first to the Big Mac, but that is PPM fault. Mark, Its PPM falut for it all. So the PPM has nothing better to do than try to oust Mac from office so they are responsible for this mess. Come on guys, even at this hour , is it really PPM fault.? Even Dart has already set to vote PPM , all the UDP had to do is grow a pair and use them when it was obvious. An anader ting, but that is for another day. UDP Give me a break. Mr. Governor, where are your cahoons or are you watching and waiting for the obvious to happen, then you can easy say that "those natives" dont know how to handle their own Island affairs?, Come on now, use that fancy pen, LA is locked shop for the year and until next election. Lets get a new election date, this is the perfect time to do so. can we agree on Febuary 14 2013.?Holiday and Love and Elections all together, Wat  ta deal.

      It scares me that Dart will now use its influence (read money) to sway the PPM and C$C.  All the "For Cayman Alliance" should be stopped until after the next election.  The people MUST have a say not just the MONEY.  and only an election can decide it.

      What makes 'God's laws' so easy to break is that they aren't real laws. Sunday may be a traditional day of rest for Christians, but there are other religions who don't observe this. Also, in this economy, I'm sure that people are taking work where they can and when it is offered to them; regardless of what day of the week the work falls on.

    Hint to UDP members:  You don't "ask" this man to do anything. You don't "consider" either under these circumstances.  You sit yourselves down like adults. Look at the situation. Can you see it?  YOUR party leader has been arrested. Granted no charges have been laid yet. But  also what are the optics if you don't INSIST on his stepping down until possibly being cleared of those charges?  Group suicide politically. As you may have noticed.. this is one stubborn individual. Whoas well is frequently arrogant as well as antagonisitic. Ask yourselves also if he really cares who goes down with his ship if it gets blown out of the water.  XXXXX Do you seriously believe all those trips were on official business?  Would you like to buy some Florida swampland? To be blunt: If you DON'T insist he LEAVE NOW you don't stand a hope of being re-elected. There may be a few muddled-headed voters in West Bay who can't see the forest for the smoke. But the vast majority of voters have had enough of this horseplay.

        Only one of those questions is relevant:

        "Should he resign if he is not guilty of any crime?".

        Answer: Yes, of course. Resignation is not an admission of guilt, it is putting country before self -something Bush claimed to recognise in 1997 when he resigned from Cabinet although he had not been arrested for, let alone charged or convicted of any crime. In any other democratic country an elected official in Bush's position would have resigned long before it came to this and the reputation of the country was dragged through the mud. With a criminal prosecution possibly looming Bush cannot focus on the affairs of state.

    Im a young Caymanian….right now im a full time college student and part time employee, i dont see much future with good governance for this country 2 years from now…..we need a change ASAP. i know it has to get bad before it gets better…..but all the excessive spending for foolishness that this government (UDP) has done is over rated.
    I dont really get it….you gave civil servants the percent from their salary back once then took it back…..what sense did that make?? After so many dripping were taken between the cut and given back one…..you know how much money the government could save.

    You best option right now is to step down….you are making you self look bad much less the country. If anyone in their right mind who had "COMMON SENSE" who so-called claim to be wrongfully assused or innocent would still step down.
    Right now you have sold your soul…dont take the entire country down with you because i aint standing by your side for nothing….not even for 2dollars. Remember money doesnt buy happiness for long…you have forgotten your roots of where you come from…Caymanian are the ideal hard working people but people who shouldnt forget where they come from.

      Anonymous 23:29, You wrote a good comment, but I doubt the Mac takes anyone's advice. However you have some spelling errors, which would have made your comments better if spelt properly, and the next time you post, do what I practice doing, stop and preview to make sure I spelt all my  words correct, and that the comment have no ( CAPS) in the middle of the sentences like the above example.

       

      #1. Assused ( X ) Accused ( Correct )

       

      # 2. If anyone in their right mind who had "COMMON SENSE" ( X )

      if anyone in their right mind, who had common sense ( Correct )  for it's not a quote.

       

      #3. (Lie#1) ( X ) Jibberish. ( Correction ) #1. ( Lie ) now the Parenthesis can be used, you can use the Colon symbol after it if you wan't, and then your sentence.

       

      #4. i aint standing by your side for nothing….not even for 2dollars. ( X )

      I ain't standing by your side for anything, not even for 2 Dollars ( Correct ).

       

      #5. Caymanian are the ideal hard working people but people who shouldnt forget where they come from. What!!! ( X ).

      Caymanian's are known to be hard working people, but they shouldn't forget where they come from.

       

      These are just a few areas you could have taking a little more time with, to make your comment more appealing to the eye's of the reader's, so they don't have to go back and spell the words properly in their head, to make sense of your comments.

      Despite this, nice comment, but the Mac is not listening, that's why he's going to fall harder when the time comes.

        You wrote: 'spelt all my words correct.' You should use an adverb to qualify a verb, ie 'correctly.'

        You wrote, 'Caymanian's are known…'  Why use an apostrophe with a plural noun? The apostrophe signifies posession.

         

         You wrote: 'These are just a few areas you could have taking a little more time with.'

         

        This doesn't even make sense. You must mean, 'These are just a few areas you could take a little more time with'.

         

        You wrote: 'to the eye's of the reader's'. The plural of 'eye' is 'eyes', not the possessive 'eye's.'

        You wrote, 'Colon', 'Dollar' and 'Parenthesis', all starting with capital letters, which is incorrect.

        Criticism can be good, but it should be based on the correct facts.

    A political witch hunt, as a result of him STANDING UP TO THE UK.

    Hold it Mr Bush, all the UK are asking you to do is abide by standards common throughout the democratic world. That means that in all your dealings on behalf of government, you are clear and transparent in what you do, so that your people can see you are acting in their best interests.

    So, if you are STANDING UP TO them, that means you are avoiding transparency, that isnt a good thing to claim, it isnt desirable for Cayman, it definitely shouldnt be a reason for the islands to support you, if you are confused about that you are neither Honourable nor fit to run the jurisdiction!

      A few weels ago I made a comment on CNS that the reckless & insulting comments by the premier (& his questionable behavior) was a deliberate ploy by him knowing what was to come, so that when the inevitable did happen he could turn around & say it was happening because he was standing up to the UK. On Tuesday last week the premier was arrested & questioned for almost 2 days. On his return to Cayman on Friday night what does he say? He accused the governor of being "vindictive & petty" as he insisted his arrest & the police investigations were "A POLITICAL WITCH HUNT AS A RESULT OF HIS STANDING UP TO THE UK"!!!!!!! What did I tell you? Just as I said. I said that the premier was deliberately acting the way he was, attacking & insulting the governor & the FCO just so as to be able to use it as a reason why they are now doing 'these things' to him. It was so obvious all along. But it will not help him, we know the truth, & it is all coming to light. More to come.

  24. Adult fiction says:

    Let's assume, for the moment at least, that the Premier is correct and that this is a politically motivated as he says, "witch hunt."  His response, justifiably, has been to remain in office because of that. The public then is being asked in a round about way to await the results which he claims will clear him of all allegations. That being said, forget the so-called accused, or the investigators, what about the public?? Lost in translation is the fact that this is their country and possibly their immediate futures at stake.  We care very little for the future of the accused because they have obviously gotten themselves into a mess politcally motivated or not. Also, and as often happens in these cases, no one is privileged to give them any more details. Because of "Ongoing investigations", or "The matter is before the courts", or, "We will allow the investigation to run it's course". Or some such comment. We have heard that numerous times. But Hold on Here!! Rewind this tape. 1. Why is all this so secretive? 2. Are we not entitled to see the evidence… from both sides? 3. Who's real interests are at stake here? 4. Further if anyone at all has the obvious right to know what is going on….isn't it the public?  If you have evidence to the contrary about your professed innocence Mr. Bush it should be readily available. And you have an obligation to let the public in on it. The same would apply to law enforcement. We refuse to be treated like children!  "I'm the parent….listen to me!!" "Don't open that present 'til Christmas!!….it's from Santa."

    On another matter I remember O J Simpson carrying out an investigation of his own too. The thing is as I understand it – once he had examnined all of the evidence the only conclusion he was able to come to was that it had to have been him that did it…

    Then I believe he wrote a book titled 'if I Did It'

      I know he feels betrayed by his party. I truly feel saddened for the premier who has done so much for these islands, to now be treated with such disrespect.

      For those of us who support him and love him, that will never change and we will forever have his back.

      Those UDP members who vote against him must already have another party to join because they will no longer be wanted in the UDP.

      In West Bay, all is up for grabs because those MLAs who voted against the premier will not get the needed votes from the public to win the 2013 election.

      If the West Bay politicians vote against him I hope they scramble to put together a campaign committee to help get them get elected because the members of the existing committee will not support them any longer. And it is the committee who has helped them win the elections.

      CG won't care because he is not running anyway, but Rolston and Captain had better think carefully about their decisions as to wheter they are going to betray the Premier.

      The Bodden Town MLAs need to be wary as well because thier committee will no longer want to work for them.

        Have you ever asked yourself why you blindly follow someone like you apparently do?? The other folks don’t have to worry about your UDP committee because you are not going to win anyhow even with this pathetic attempt to scare Rolstan, mark etc.

        Maybe ‘the committee ‘ is not a good thing for cayman. Maybe you shouldn’t be threatening people with ‘the committee.

           Think again.

           Keke's fallen out of favour after trying to 'smear' the integrity of certain Upstanding Caymanian Families and business merchants. 

           In fact, he has took a swipe at no less than FIVE (5) Caymanian Families at once when he basically called them all 'Liers' after their meeting with him to "withdraw the Expat Tax".

           "Sorry for mawga dog, him turn round and bite you".

           NOT THIS TIME BOBO !!

        Bodden Town MLA's will know better than vote against the premier.  All of them including Anthony Eden know that the Premier is a good man.  I dare any of them to say anything different.  All the other wasters that are running for Bodden Town will be wasting time and money come 2013.

        Poor you.  Those two Bodden Town members are doomed anyway.  They should have left him a long time ago and in the sight of Bodden Towners they would have been heros and worthy of re-election.  Instead they stuck with him and now they are doomed to the same fate that Roy and Gilbert suffered some years back. 

        Let's get something straight here, Bodden Towners not on welfare, are not dependent on one Jackass for a ride and are not so easily brain-washed.  We expect a hire standard of our representatives and we won't hesitate to change them when they follow idiots.  Mark and Duane are both educated and to allow themselves to be led by someone who says they are not only not using their education, but they are not using their common sense.

        So, talk about their committee not wanting to work for them, their committee probably looking for someone else to work for!  Embarrassment killing them.

        it is obvious that you are more concerned about McKeeva and the 'Politics' of the country than you are of the welfare of our country.

        It is truly SAD and SCARY that the fate of so many countries are hinged on the decisions/VOTES of the Gullable, very Foolish and Ignorant electorate(illiterate) no need to mention the dirty, greedy and corrupt portion of the population, which by the way is no doubt the Larger Percentage of the population of every country' on this Forsaken Earth, 

        People, We can only do the best we can do to survive this ATROCITY repidly unfolding before our very eyes.

        May God bless our Souls.

      Knot so smart, good name they gave you.  Why should the Premier not do his own private investigation?   Then in so doing he will get to the bottom of the Culprits.  I support you Mr Premier  SPEND MONEY, HIRE PRIVATE DETECTIVES AND DIG OUT ALL THEM SHO WANT TO HANG YOU.

        So the title of this movie will be: 'Madea Investigates the Investigators'?

        Knot so Smart I do hope he remembers to get a legal Aid Lawyer to defend him also.  Government has to pay out of the peoples pockets for his lawyer.  Very good, so all the political hipocrites cannot even think of getting a raise in the next 20 years.

        As long as he is spending his own money, investigate away. Will he ask for a refund if his investigation show him guilty?

    Ok all you people what next for the country. Anyway anyone stop and think do you care who run the country as much as you care who will lives up to there words and do the right for the country?, who remember jamaica PNP when norman manley was stepping down everybody say fresh prince. The Jamaican get 8 years of what they call a down fall yes they go on and lived still, but there was change needed again after that 8 years everyone start crying only to know they go JLP yet the Jamaican had prob with the JLP again after 4 year they went back to PNP now they all say the PNP not doing well. My point is what we really want do you think about a long term situations and come together and run small cayman all as one more than fight to reach the be at the top and better them selfs for the future and leaving half of the country fighting to better them self. If you should look at justice is the same for most of the people on the island only some people may get justice some cant the bottom line for that is money get justice.
