The Editor Speaks: More shocks and a meteor has hit me

MORE people voted for the Party system than the Independents. 60% to 40% – do the maths yourselves. And Tara Rivers is no part of that so called Independent gang so don’t count her 530 odd votes in the equation. She will not sit with them. The first shock I had was the deal between […]

The Editor speaks: Shocks, shocking and shocked

Even though I was expecting some shocks after yesterday’s election I was right there were. The shocks were not where I expected they would be. I knew Kenneth Bryan was going to be tough. He had been campaigning for over a year, He had even spoken to me but I told him I had now […]

The Editor Speaks: Cayman Islands goes to the polls

I am NOT going to advise anyone on who to vote for. I pray you vote wisely and not just because the person running is family and/or a friend. Vote for whom you truly feel is the best person to run our beautiful country. THERE IS NO ROOM FOR SENTIMENT THIS TIME!! At no time […]

The Editor Speaks: There was little good nature in Progressives motorcade clash.

The Progressives put on a very Impressive motorcade last Saturday (20) that started at West Bay and went around Grand Cayman and finished up in Savannah in the backyard of one of the Progressives candidates, Heather Bodden.

When leader of the Cayman Democratic Party (CDP), McKeeva Bush, announced he would not be attending, McLaughlin, along with […]

The Editor Speaks: Sharon sizzled

I was asked to speak last night (Wed 17) at Candidate for George Town East Sharon Roulstone’s Yard Meeting. It was nothing big. Just a few words and a prayer. The prayer was very specific. It was not just for Sharon but for ALL the candidates standing in the May 24th Elections. After a small […]

The Editor Speaks: LOUD!!!

Have you noticed nearly every advert you hear on the radio is loud? You have something that I believe is music (a very poor imitation of it to be sure) playing in the background at frantic speed comprising crashing drums, cymbals, guitars, etc. and loud. Above this mess is a voice shouting so as to […]

The Editor Speaks: Government schools

The commencement of the statement took great pains to refute media and social network reports that […]

The Editor speaks: What is a mother. What isn’t a mother – MOAB

When we think of a mother do we really think she is someone who gives birth and nurtures a being to bring destruction and death? “A mother gives life and this one gives death, and we call this device a mother. What is happening?’ This was said recently by Pope Francis who criticised the naming […]

The Editor Speaks: Corruption

In more than one of our stories today there is a hint of corruption, and it is the banking sector again that the finger has been pointed. Nothing proved but there is a smell that something bad lurks at the bottom (or in these cases maybe the top). In another story today FIFA, itself tainted […]
