Mac heads for Venice

| 22/03/2011

(CNS): The premier is beginning another overseas trip this week, which will include a trip to the famous Italian canal city of Venice. According to Mckeeva Bush’s press office, he will be visiting the historic city in order to look at a dam built by GLF, the developers who are currently poised to construct the cruise berthing piers in George Town. The premier will begin his travels, however, in Washington to meet US treasury representatives, before heading to New York for tourism strategy related meetings, then to Venice before heading to Dubai to promote the development of the planned technical economic zone.

During the premier’s travels to Italy, aside from reviewing the dam built by GLF to prevent the flooding of Venice, demonstrating the firm’s engineering capabilities, he will also meet with Italian tourism and airline officials to discuss tourism matters, including the possibility of Alitalia code sharing with Cayman Airways.

On Bush’s first port of call on Wednesday in Washington DC he is scheduled for talks with the US Treasury, accompanied by Attorney General Samuel Bulgin, CIMA Chairman George McCarthy, Deputy Chief Officer, Financial Services Samuel Rose and accountant Dan Scott. Next on the agenda will be New York, where, accompanied by MLA Cline Glidden, the premier will attend the Department of Tourism’s Global Marketing Strategies meeting.

After Venice, Bush will head to the Arabian Gulf and Dubai, where he joins the developers of Cayman Enterprise City to promote the special economic zone that is proposed by Hon Development Company. “The premier will participate in a news conference and meet with potential investors, including members of Dubai’s royal family, to discuss the possibility of setting up business in the Cayman Islands,” the press office stated.

While the premier is away, Deputy Premier Juliana O’Connor-Connolly will be acting as premier.

    I’m telling you, if you want this to stop… just start showing up at the airport to ‘welcome’ him back

    If the people of Cayman truly wanted to put an end to this, it wouldn’t be all that difficult.

    He will probably take a taxi over to Monte Carlo to check out Madoff mega yatch.He may also be trying to buy one for himself and get her outfitted, before bringing her home through his North Sound Channel. Watch and see.

    Mac’s lavish wasteful foolishness has to STOP!  If the Premiere needed to personally visit a GLF project, he did not have to go any further than Tampa Florida! Cayman Airways flies there. To punctuate McKeeva’s foolery, the Tampa project – a ship berthing facility at the Port of Tampa – compares far better to the proposed local GLF project than does a dam in Venice for godssake!

    What in the hell is this man thinking? Is he thinking?

    Has Bush no self-control? No conscience? No sense of right and wrong? Obviously not. People of this land are hurting financially and this man has made it abundantly clear that he quite obviously does not give one paltry damn. No wonder McKeeva is the most popular butt of jokes and criticism in the country today.

    Why is this so-called leader wasting our cash-strapped country’s money so he can enjoy a first-class all-expenses-paid stay in Venice? If Mac absolute had to go to Venice to see a GLF project, one would think he would visit one of the many GLF projects at the Port of Venice. (Or does that make too much sense?) I mean after all we are talking about a port-related project here, right? Am I missing something or is this latest antic not the straw that broke the camel’s back?

    We the people of the Cayman Islands are pathetic fools if we continue to stand idly by like impotent ninnies while Mac continues to slap our faces like this! I for one have had more than enough! Am I the only one?

    I am giving consideration to starting my own grass-roots protest movement to try and put a stop to things like this, NOW. Is anybody with me on this? Or will we continue to allow this man and his administration to exercise free and unaccountable reign in wasting the country’s money with his "Who-cares? Let them eat cake" mentality?

    There is power in numbers; broad non-party-affiliated organisation at a grass roots level is a very potent way to bring about change.  Do any Caymanians here love this country enough to leave politricks behind and band together to put a stop to this seriously misguided administration? I am beginning to have grave concerns about the true state of Caymanian’s love of their land. Hearing Caymanians singing "Beloved Isle Cayman" is beginning to sound like mere lip service to me!

    A starting point would be formation of a blog or forum where we can band together ideas for demonstrations, protests and political strategy to end this now. And of course we will make jokes aout Mc – lots of jokes. The PPM could be more effective; but Alden and the PPM, for all their "big dog" growling are just pathetic little "rubber squeaking toys", as Mr. Haig was fond of saying. The PPM play politics, and playing is all that it is – nothing the PPM have done thus far has caused Mac to alter his course even a fraction of a degree.

    Toppling a horrible government seems well beyond the PPM’s capability, or maybe they just do not care. So we not need them or their games. Ok PPM’ers: care to weigh in on this one? What’s the deal here?

    The people can do better without either the UDP or the PPM controlling things. But first things first: the people must see to it that Mac is booted out of office. The sooner the better. The next scheduled election is way too far off. Why is the PPM is not really doing anything about this situation other than talk? My sources have it that the PPM thinks that capitalising on the growing anti-Bush sentiment will be PPM’s strongest card in the coming election. This may be a compelling strategic reason the PPM are reluctant to try to get rid get rid of Mac now: the PPM fears that without Mac as the main point to rally against, the PPM may not form the next government. Using this as a political football is shameful, but why else is the PPM doing nothing more than talking a big game?


    It is "Time for a CHANGE!"

    Who is with me?

    PS: Keep the McKeeva jokes coming!  Here’s my contribution:  "Cayman’s Premiere is on the next leg of an extended trip overseas. In a speech during his visit to Venice, Premiere Bush vowed to do whatever it takes to keep the Cayman Islands on a path to intelligent politics and economic recovery. In fact he said that he will stay out of the country for as long as necessary."

      • They cant do anything, no Vavoos, remember how Macjindejab walked in and took over from them 10 years ago. Thats why I dont have faith in the PPM, a lot of talk butno action.

        Its proven Alden cant run the country, Macjinedab is screwing it up, so its time for the elected members to step aside and let some other young blood in, at least if they screw it up we can blame it on inexperienced people, right now its egotistical boys trying to do a man’s job.

    We want to thank the people of Cayman for electing us 2 years ago. In that time we have traveled many many miles to all of the world’s famous destinations (can’t remember them all). Though we promised we were attracting investments in Cayman we have not been able to find investors. On the bright side we have really enjoyed the 5 star hotels and living the high life. Oh what wonderful memories we have from an African safari to Hong Kong and all in between. Its grand to see the sights of the world and not have to worry about the cost.
    Thank you also for all of the perks we enjoy at home too. Having walls built, homes refurbished, new wardrobes, security ( Cayman is dangrous now), travel companions and all the other nice things that we can think of.
    We know that we cost Cayman but we are confident that you all are happy for us and you would not want your leaders to live any other way.
    A special shout out to the civil servants for taking a pay cut to support our life style. We are so happy that you did not expect us to pay cut. It would have been impossible for us to live on a smaller pay check.
    For the remaining 2 years we will continue to travel if we can find any where that we have not already been.
    Not to worry when election time comes around again we will be giving out the usual tokens of our appreciation. West Bay: appliances, driveways & special favours. Cayman Brac: Water tanks, parking lots and private rooms in the Hurricane Hilton. Of course if you have a special friend that needs status let us know.
    If you will re-elect us in 2013 we promise to stay in Cayman more and try to do something here if we have time.

    Again Thank you

    Maybe he is travelling to Venice not to check out the dam but to check out how to build a city on water . Maybe when then North sound is channelled and the island is flooded we can create our own Caribbean Venice and have gondolas instead of taxis on West Bay Road.

    The Premier needs to address the legitimate issues being brought up by your readers not only with the MLA’s but with his people.  CNS can you provide a platform for the people of the islands to put forward their specific concerns (consultancy selection, FOI, travel justification/efficiency/effectiveness, CRIME, etc..etc…etc..etc….), log votes similar to regular articles,  condense and forward to the leader with invitation to a press conference?  Even a refusal will in itself send a message to the people (possibly that Mr. Bush has reconciled himself to this final term).

      What I find strange is why he is going to Venice to talk to an Engineer / Firm that built a dam to prevent Venice flooding…yet the water level rises every year in Venice and it is inevitable that it will flood?

      Secondly, would it not make sense to fly the team in Venice out here so they could actually see what they plan to do frist hand?

      Three, it does not take a genius to figure out that if you are trying to attract business, bring them out here to scout the place, Going there with a group of people led by an illiterate person, first class to sight see in my mind does not promote anything. Anybody can do that.

I also heard him say that he would not run again he must have forgotten. Maybe that’s why he sacked Anglin as number two.

      The bigger question is, however, how can the othe members of the Government, in particular Mark Scotland, Mike Adam, and Rolston Anglin, who are purportedly intelligent people, continue to sanction this type of behaviour? Are they too spineless to say to fearless McDredge to stop this squandering of money? Do they subscribe to the absulutely shameful behaviour on TV night before last?

      I hope they realise that they are being painted with the same briush and that when the time comes, Cayman will simply not forget. Let’s just hope and pray that the time for their elimination from power is soon. Egypt did it. Why cant’ we?

        "Order of the Caribbean Community

        From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

        The Order of the Caribbean Community is an award given to

        "Caribbean nationals whose legacy in the economic, political, social and cultural metamorphoses of Caribbean society is phenomenal"

        The award was initiated at the Eighth (8th) Conference of Heads of State and Governments of CARICOM in 1987 and began bestowal in 1992. Decisions as to award are taken by the Advisory Committee for the Order of the Caribbean Community

        The Insignia of the O.C.C. set in gold and the Ribbon of the Order are presented to those honoured.

        Privileges and entitlements

        There are some privileges and entitlements invested upon the recipients. Some of these are the follows:

        • The award confers the styling The Honourable upon the recipient and Post- Nominals O.C.C.
        • Members of the Order are accorded the privilege of free movement among Member States of the Community and are issued with a travel document  which is assigned similar status to a diplomatic passport.
        • The right to reside in and be gainfully employed in any Member State, as well as the right to acquire and dispose of property, as would citizens of Member States, is entitlements granted to Members of the Order.



        I don’t see his name on the list, I don’t think he’s the son of English aristocracy, and so surely this is another example of self-grandeur that the Cayman people don’t need to tolerate?

Somebody made a big screw up with what money the PPM gov. left, looks like they left a whole lot more than this gov. say that was left, for they can really travel up and down, to the farest parts of the world, and they have to have a lot of company to take along. Have mercy on us dear God you are our only hope now. PPM wake up and take your country back NOW.

    I’m getting ready to build my house and want to use GLF too, can the people of Cayman pay for me to go so I can view the dam as well.  Pictures and internet just won’t do. Besides didn’t you know a dam is so much like my house and a cruise berthing pier, because it’s on the water.

      We will all be near water soon – trouble is when the North Sound Channel is finished – we will be under it -no need for a dam!

    well at least, he gets a vacation break from the pressures building against him on the North Sound Channel. I watched News 27 and although he was a bit frustrated from callers, they were some who showed him no respect as well. I guess time will tell of the value of this project. Like Mac said, if the environmental study says NO, then he will say NO to contructing a channel – simple!

      You really believe that BS! When the poor Constitutional Commissioners can’t offer a suggestion, you tell me who can tell him no? You crazy? To do that is the unpardonable sin. You lose your job for that.

      Only when the West Bayers become smart enough to stop voting him in and the rest of the island stop voting in his "party favors" in the other districts. I challenge you all to make a difference and lets get these people out of office before the next election. By 2013 it will be too late. XXXXX, we will all be jobless and destitute and holed up in our homes from crime and they won’t give a monkeys behind. They probably won’t even be here! Put them out now! I say get rid of the wimpy governor and chief of police as well and lets start this over and see if we can get it right. England you must be able to do better than this???? This island is becoming a disgrace of a territory.
