MLAs ‘thrown under bus’

| 04/04/2013

under bus.JPG(CNS): Dwayne Seymour made a startling admission Thursday that he had never supported the idea of relocating the country’s landfill to Bodden Town and that he and his UDP colleagues at the time were “thrown under the bus” by then premier McKeeva Bush over the issue. He said that he did not reveal his true feelings when the plans were revealed because he believed the situation was not unlike a “family squabble” and did not need to be aired publicly, but he was not in favour of the proposal and would not be campaigning in support of a landfill in his district. The community affairs minister said he wanted people to know he was not scared to accept responsibility but he would not support any decision on a new landfill before the best site for it had been determined.

Speaking at Thursday morning’s live press briefing, which will be repeated on the government TV station this evening, the Bodden Town incumbent voluntarily offered the information when he referred to reports on CNS that he and his runningmate, Mark Scotland, were the last two candidates supporting the landfill move.

“No one ever came to me to ask me if I was OK with a waste-management facility in Bodden Town,” he said, adding that he was part of a group that made a decision to consider the Dart proposal. However, Seymour said Bush had made the announcement to him and his colleagues without consultation, “throwing us under the bus", but, he said, "I was not happy with that."

Nevertheless, he did not resign or speak out because promises were made that it would not be a dump but a modern waste-management facility and the caucus was “encouraged to go along with it". Seymour said that it was not his decision to bring the landfill to the district and he wanted to make it clear he was not a supporter of the plan.

Support from his cabinet colleagues also appeared to be dwindling for the proposal to relocate the George Town landfill to the Midland Acres area of Bodden Town as part of the wider ForCayman Investment Alliance with Dart. Scotland said the negotiations regarding the proposed land swap regarding the landfill had stopped because government was no longer in a position to be able to move ahead, given that the election is less than seven weeks away.

Scotland implied that the situation was always merely a proposal that offered a solution to what continues to be a major issue and would now be a problem for the next administration, which he hoped they would tackle as soon as possible. Back-pedalling somewhat on his own support, Scotland admitted it was possible to fix the dump in George Town but it was the cost that was the problem. He said he was in favour of any solution that would address the issue that government could afford, as Mount Trashmore has continued to grow while successive administrations have been unable to find a solution.

The West Bay incumbent MLAs also hedged their position about the proposal. Rolston Anglin said there was “never a carte blanche approval for the facility”, adding that the people needed to be properly educated about the waste-management problem Cayman faced as many candidates were “talking garbage” about it. But whatever the next government decided to do, it had to have the support of the residents, even if that meant having to start a new site. Anglin said that, in his own opinion, he did not think it was feasible to tackle it via a waste-to-energy project on site, describing the concept of “dredging and burning” at the landfill as “foolhardy”.

His West Bay running mate, Cline Glidden, also distanced himself from the proposal and implied that the politicians were not the best people to decide on a waste-management solution because it was a complex science that may still take time to be solved, given the lack of financial resources available to government.

    The dump’s proposed location north of Breakers is actually the best place…there or east end where we have lots of land. Anyone who supports it staying in the center of the capital is crazy. One day when the methane in that dump goes off we will all be saying some politician in 2013 should have had the balls to move it. Every expert that has seen it says it’s a ticking time bomb. The residents in savannah are actually closer to the GT dump than they would be the one in Breakers. Lets think cayman.

    Most don’t know that the dump was originally under the cricket field. As crewe road was built someone said let’s move it to where we have lots of land and there is no one around it. It got moved to the back of beyond (where it is now). First they dug a big hole and starting putting garbage in it. It soon became a hill. Then came the industrial park and swamp residences and esterley Tibbetts and Camana Bay and tourist and hotels and condos. Then it became a small mountain now topping 100 feet. I understand the fishermen now use it to find grand cayman as it is the only thing they can see over 12 miles out. The logical thing to do….move it again.

    It does not matter where we live on this island this is a NATIONAL issue and we need a NATIONAL SOLUTION! And clearly leaving it as it is, where it is, is not that solution.

    This revelation tells the country nad all voters in the up coming election not to vote for UDP, PNA or ex UDP independents for none of them were actually doing their jobs of representing the people of their electorate nad the interests of the country as they blindly followed their despotic dictator and were basically lap dogs to Bush and not their people who are their employers paying their big salaries to do a job which they were clearly not doing. Mr Seymour you are an absolute disgrace in that you did not represent the will of your electorate, you did not go public with this phony revelation until now, and you did not stand up to your dictator Mr. Bush in the process. Shame on you Mr. Seymour and I sincerely hope that Bodden Town voters ensure that you will never represent them again.

    I was at the public meeting in BT on the discussion of the dump. That was a perfect opportunity for Dwayne to say his bit, however he chose to remain silent while Mark was spouting his support for the movement of the dump to BT.


    A family squabble? Dwayne, the BT voters are your family, and you said or acted how you truly felt at the time when Mac and Ellio were trying to ram the dump down our throats – you did not care, coz if you did you would have done something about how Mac and Ellio wanted to ruin BT .


    You are a wutless, lying coward Dwayne, and Mark too for quietly following Mac and Ellio in their effort to destroy BT with moving the dump there. Bodden Towners have no use for you, give up now and you will at least save yourself some embarrassment.

    Thrown under the Limo I think he means. I doubt he'd have gone anywhere near a bus while he was being a coward and supporting things he disagreed with.

    This is worse than if he supported the dump. At least then we would have known he stood up for what he believed in even when it was unpopular. Instead it seems he had zero impact in government and when the time came for him to stand up and be counted he was useless.

    Now he'll say whatever he thinks might keep him in a lucrative job for a bit longer.

    The fact that this man is willing to flip on his old party members, claim ignorance in the deal and throw McKeeva Bush down as the person who will take full blame for a deal they all had a hand in sculpting just shows you how weak he is. Weak men have weak convictions. Dwayne Seymour is the kind of man who can be best described as a piece of dirty laundry on a clothesline – he blows wherever the wind pushes him, and if anyone asks he'll say that he got that dirty from working with other dirty people.

      If everyone were to adopt your attitude of "stay home, don't vote" then no one would have the right to complain about what happens in our country. We have a civic duty and a responsibility to each other to elect the best possible candidates that are presented to us. Every vote counts, and every vote is an opinion on where the population sees our country progressing to in the future. Reactions and ideas like yours are the reason that we have such a hard time putting sensible, intelligent people in public office – now is not the time to be passive and have a 'what will be, will be' attitude. We need to stand up together, take control and make a postiive change in the future of our country before it is too late. Vote now, vote intelligently, vote for a secure future.

      Eleven charges or none, the likes of you could never and will never be able to step in his shoes. Because if you have the ability to be truthful, which is seems u don’t, you will say that he has done alot of good for his country and the people. Who knows, even you might be a big beneficiary of some of the good that he has done. Remember though, not every day will be like today. Rejoicing in what happens to the first and only Premier that Cayman has had and will ever had isn’t going to benefit you in any way shape or form. But, if it does, please be the first one to come on and report it. We might be shocked to know! So much haters in such a small lil Island is really sad. God bless you and I pray he will give you a different mind set and will help you to make the right choice in May. Do what you feel is the right thing for you to do and not because of having so much hate in your heart for one person. Remember you donot have to vote for McKeeva, but you will have to live with the outcome of the election.

    Mr. Seymour is so typical of the breakaway UDPites …Seems like none of them were ever in the room when anything unpopular was being discussed.   Truth is that Mac would tell them what he had decided and they simply towed the line and religously preached his propoganda.  

    Mac and Foolio were making fun of this mimmion on the Joey Ebanks (soon-to-be-cancelled) talk show today.  Mac also hinted that someone is a "business partner" with the person that sold DART the land for the BT dump.  Wonder who that could be? 

    The 2 UDP factions will destroy each other prior to the election and that is win-win for Cayman!

You sir are trying to make people look like idiots. Your other buddies are doing the same thing too. You were voted in to look after the people of bodden town, to be their voice, yet you kept quite. This shows me that you do not deserve to be an MLA for the people by any standards… Go and lay low.. protect your cayman vessel and begone with you, you false prophet.

    Make sure you take scotland and the rest of those idiots with you too, ie  Frederick, Arnold Berry, Theresa Pitcarin just to name a few We know what they are all about too. waste our time listening to lies empty promises.

    Damn sell outs.. This is a different year.

    You have been weighed, you have been measured, you have been found wanting…. bobo

      I am with you on getting rid of UDP and the rest of them, but in BT, I am voting PPM all the way, because I don't see any better candidates to vote for.

    Yet him, Mark and Richard Christian were still campaing to residents in Beach Bay a couple if weeks ago telling them is was still the best place to out to dump.

      It actually is the best place…there or east end where we have lots of land. Anyone who supports it staying in the center of the capital is crazy. One day when the methane in that dump goes off we will all be saying some politician in 2013 should have had the balls to move it.

      Most don’t know that the dump was originally under the cricket field. As crewe road was built someone said let’s move it to where we have lots of land and there is no one around it. It got moved. First they dug a big hole and starting putting garbage in it. It soon became a hill. Then came the industrial park and swamp residences and esterley Tibbetts and Camana Bay and tourist and hotels and condos. Then it became a small mountain. The logical thing to do….move it again.

      It does not matter where we live on this island thisis a NATIONAL issue and we need a NATIONAL SOLUTION! And clearly leaving it as it is, where it is, is not that solution.

    Flip-Flopping career politicians and ones like Cline Glidden (let me cash a dozen more paycheques before I do what I was voted in for…..make decisions for the public) are the reason we need to streamline government and get rid of our “waste” the UDP & PPM !!!

    I’m tired of the same old garbage!

      Don’t like to point out the obvious but didn’t the people of Bodden Town vote this loser in to office in the first place? Don’t we as voters have to take some responsibility for thoseWEelected in to office and then failed to march into their offices and demand accountability? Just something to think about when going to the polls this year YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE for at least part of the mess if you vote for the mess in the first place and don’t demand it be cleaned up sooner rather than later

    Oh Please, He didn't speak up before so he should remain silent now. Nothing like a back-stabber. He is just trying to get votes, what a fool this man is, if he thinks we don't see that. He could have said he did not agree but he was out voted, why elect someone to office that will not use his/her voice!

    Next all these liars will also be claiming they were against the GLF deal, the CHEC deal, Shetty's Hospital, the Business Park, and every other suggestion put forth.

    Covering their asses just in time for elections, what a pile of BS.

    One thing these Honourable liars should remember is that it's hard to remember lies when you constantly do it, so as Mac loves to say, be careful you don't fall and pop ya mout.

    So…in other words, nothing will change, the dump will treble in size in its current location and then it will be too late to do anything.

    I am going to start a tour for the the cruise shippers as its the first and last landmark anyone see's when they come to Cayman.

    I can then sell them t-shirts with the slogan "Don't go to Cayman, its a Dump".

      Agreed, I just don't get it.  The dump doesn't belong where it is and something needs to be done before it's too late.  No matter what location is chosen for the dump you will have a group of unhappy residents.  Just get it done and move it from the current location for crying out loud!!

        I just don't get it either!  Everyone seems to know that it is anenvironmental hazard that the people of George Town and West Bay Road/Seven Mile Beach deal with 24 hours every day. Every politician talks about it but so far this was the only plan that appeared to be taking it somewhere (literally).  C'mon people something MUST be done!

        Thrown under the buss?!!! If only, then perhaps I would feel better about the future of these islands with UDP/PNA gone.

        Totally agree, for God's sake, the dump needs to be moved, we talking about needing a cruise berthing facility so that we can handle more cruise ships to come here, do you know the first thing they see from the decks of the ships, a huge mountain full of garbabe. Someone needs to grow a pair and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT NOWWWWWWW!!!

      • Anonymous says:

        Do you live in West Bay? If so, maybe your backyard might be the best place to put the dump then! They only want it moved because Dart doesn’t like iit next to the Prestigious Camana Bay!

    so….i wonder if anyone heard mark scotland talking about the waste management system on the radio a few months back….you seem pretty much for it

      He was on the Rooster arguing with Alva Suckoo telling him that they had the solution all figured out and the location and the plan was perfect. I plainly heard Suckoo tell Mark that the plan was flawed and that it was only a stop-gap solution and would be a major issue within 4 years. Mark argued and argued and believed his own foolishness. Thank God people like Suckoo can see through his veil of crap and are able to take him down. Mr Suckoo you have my vote we need people like you representing BT not these jokers because they are all alike.
