    Who is running to the rescue of those poor  Yazidis in Iraq? the UK and the US.

    If you all think that we can run these little Islands alone without any type of security, go ahead and destroy it.

    Those Kurds in the North of Iraq have lots of war implements and they are no match to the Isis militants.

    Should we go independent we will have to get Jamaica to assist us with security and protection, do you all want that? or accept some other tax based country to give us security.

    I cant understand why Caymanians hate the UK when all they did was to give us security and protection.

    I know what it is! those lying politicians blaming the Uk for their own inadequacy and incompetency,  and of course we having that  narrow minded mentality, we all fall for  the negative.

    Prestigious Chevening Scholarships ….. these are but mere colonial imperialist titbits.

    Siblings, let us not be downhearted. I put forward the motion that the entire colonial apparatus is dismantled within two weeks otherwise an emergency council meeting will be put to the vote.

    And who said Mummy never does anything for her children?? The question is, do the children want to learn Good Governance etc and then put it to use, or just carry on with the same old sh*t that ruins things for all..

      That'sexactly the reason Caymanians cant get ahead, they are narrow minded and think negative most the time.

      Some of us are ready to blame the UK and hate the queen. I hear Caymanians with the rhetoric all the time…so ugreatful.

      Most forgot that being Brititish gave us great security and stability, which caused these little Islands to succed to the position of being the 5th financial centre in the World.

      Just stop for a moment a look at the rest of the countries that would like to have our status.

      Our Sovereignn Queen is the same English Queen that told Fidel back in his conquering of Cuba, not to touch one of her British subject.

      I thank God for being British! God save the Queen!

      I would hope that Caymanians take the opportunity and apply for those educated positions, offered by the UK. God knows we need the education! and hope it will broaden their minds.

            Try going independent without the British Empire name behind you and these stooges we have for politiciaans running the show and you will see where you end up. Jamaica could do it because they ave resources upon resources but what do we have and even Jamaica messed up independence.

            Your question should be; what more do we want the UK to do for us!

            Unless you were born 10 years ago and dont have a clue about our position with the UK, then I can understand your question.

            The UK has  given us security, stability.   That so much, the rest of the World trust us to do business,and to  invest in theses little Islands, the result has cause many other nationalities, all want to live here. They have given us more autonomy to run our affairs, but of course we lack the  people with  the brain to carry it out.I

            I wont  go into that now, it would only embarrass  you. I will give you one example; The most spoken words of a politician; our hands are tied….Damn liars!!!
