Friends, family greet Mac but no sign of UDP caucus

| 15/12/2012

(CNS): There were no members of the UDP parliamentary group to greet the premier on Friday night when around 100 friends and family members turned up at Owen Roberts International Airport on his return from Jamaica. Cayman 27 reports that Bush told the small crowd that he has no intention of stepping down and the allegations against him are politically motivated. In his first public appearance in Cayman following his arrest Tuesday morning at his home in West Bay, the premier made it clear he was not going voluntarily. Meanwhile, it is understood that a number of the UDP government and backbenchers have asked Bush to resign.

Bush was returning home after flying out very early Thursday morning to Jamaica, where he gave the commencement address on integrity at the University College of the Caribbean on Thursday night. He was scheduled to receive an honorary doctorate from the college but the UCC hadpostponed that award.  Bush told the group at the airport that it was decided he will receive the doctorate here in Cayman, the local news channel reported.

    Well ole Mac, Bobo, it look like they love and respect you more in Jamaica, there were all sorts of pictures and broadcasts messages of your motorcade and thousands of supporters who greeted you at the airport in Jamaica.   Why did you even bother to come back and without that Doctorate?  shame on them for letting you go all that way to speak on integrity, what none of them know anything about and then to let you down easy.  Poor ole humpty dumpty, fell soft but still splattered !!

    I am a bit confused here…the UCC postponed the issuing of his honorary doctorate there in Jamacia and Bush told the group at the Airport that it will happen here in Cayman…I guess he will issue it to himself just like how he will start his own investigation into himself…Lord help us! …maybe during his investigation he will be taken back in time and get a reality shock as to what it really happening to him! I am sure he wil have less supporters than when he arrived back from his trip to Jamaica… the UCC just confirmed that he has not been honorable in anything he has done. They could not have made a better decision than to postone it…maybe they should postpone it indefiniately!

      I wonder how many (giving some the benefit of the doubt) of his entourage paid for the trip?

      Some familiar faces seem to continue at the trough……it soon run dry though!!

    Does bush really think anybody believes his comment that it has been decided that the Jamaican honorary doctorate will be awarded to him in Cayman ? There always has to be a made up story to soften his embarressment – talk about being in denial.

    Rolston offered to pick him up and drive him home, but Big Mac declined.

    We really did miss an opportunity there. The other 52,460 of us really should have down up to kick his fat ass back on the plane.

    100 friends and supporter meeting him at the airport represents .006 of 1% of the electorate which equates to 99.994% of the electorate not supporting this madman dictator. This shameless man is so ridiculous that he does not have the intelligence to know how stupid and unprofessional he really is as he is the absolute laughing stock of not only Cayman but the world who follows his antics.

      Yep – using the criteria set by him for OMOV, he is gone.

      How intelligent is it to take the fact that about 100 people showed up at the airport as the basis to conclude that 99.994% of the electorate do not support Mr. Bush?

      Do you understand what is wrong with your type of thinking?

        It is the same thinking that Bush used for the OMOV referendum where he treated a non-vote as a vote against. He called for the people to come to airport to show their support for him but only 100 (or less) could be bothered.

      Sorry Guys! I was at the airport to meetsome friends coming in on the JA flight and there was a lot of us meeting friends & family.

      the supporters for MAC was about 50 or less. please do not include us who was meeting our friends and family as his suppporters..

      CNS: please retrack your comment of 100 or more supporters as that is incorrect.

    Down to 100 hard core supporters. Not a single MLA in attendance. Speaks volumes for the lack of support for Big Mac.

      Mac still strong in his district of West Bay, its CG and Rollie who have to worry about whether they will win another election if they go against him in a no confidence vote.

      BTW, how was it that the media knew so quickly that the premier was arrested? Looks kind of orchestrated to me.
