CIG will function normally, says governor

| 11/12/2012

Throne Speech  Governor.jpg(CNS): The Cayman Islands governor, Duncan Taylor, has said that he is committed to ensuring the normal function of government, regardless of the arrest of the premier this morning. Taylor said the whole of the the Cayman Islands Government would ensure its effective functioning and the continued efficient delivery of services to the public. The governor further stated that he had confidence in the police commissioner to carry out a robust and fair enquiry. The statement was released in the wake of the arrest of McKeeva Bush Tuesday in connection with the misuse of a government credit card and the importation of dynamite.

The governor said, “The conduct of criminal investigations in the Cayman Islands is a matter for the police commissioner.  If evidence is brought to his attention which leads him to suspect that an offence or offences may have been committed, I expect him to carry out a robust, fair and comprehensive investigation, regardless of the individual concerned.  I am confident that the police commissioner will ensure that this applies to the ongoing investigations involving the premier.”

    I think he means the government will function as it did before, ie not very well.

    That's fine, but I wish someone would use the word "speedy" instead of "robust".

      Everything’s “robust” nowadays. It’s meaningless PR jargon and the Governor should know better. Leave it to the muppets at the Chamber of Commerce to overuse if they must.

      “Robust, fair and comprehensive”. God help us: just say “full” if you have to say anything.

      A tip for all you illiterate PR people: drop the adjectives and adverbs. They make you look like you’re trying too hard. Which of course you’re not.

    Hear that? Curruption & Mis-appropriation of Funds, Incompetence & Copious amounts of unwarranted (& Exorbitantly Costly) Travel WILL be maintained by our present Government.
    The more things change, the more they remain the same.

    CIG will function normally????? That'll be a first. If true it's the only good thing that's come out of this mess so far.

      I don't want CIG's actions to be normal.  I would like them to be efficient and productive.
