The Editor Speaks: Two years is two years too long

The one thing that I can agree with, that was oft repeated in CITN-Cayman27’s “The Panel” programme on Tuesday (1), was why it has taken two years of police investigations into a letter supposedly sent by Mr. Bush to Texan developer Stan Thomas back in 2004 asking for $350,000 to settle a matter relating to […]

The Editor Speaks: The Cayman Islands press is unfair

It is astounding that politicians, government officials, et al, blame the Cayman Islands press for speculation and actually having the temerity to actually publish the news that according to The RCIPS Commissioner, David Baines, is “not fair.” “Whilst I appreciate that there will inevitably be a high level of interest in these investigations the continuing […]

The Editor Speaks: No confidence vote looks doomed

With at least one UDP cabinet member publically stating he will be supporting Premier McKeeva Bush despite the three police investigations surrounding him, the opposition’s no confidence motion is doomed. Health Minister Mark Scotland said that all of the UDP members of the LA would be voting against the motion and will not be asking […]

The Editor Speaks: Almost unbelievable

On Wednesday (25) Austin Harris on his radio talk-show “Cayman Crosstalk” with co-anchor Gilbert McLean, made the almost unbelievable announcement that the Hurley’s group had been “held hostage” because of the show. “The deal is fire Gilbert and Austin and you’ll get what you want,” Harris revealed saying, “Infinity Broadband Ltd, which is a sister […]

The Editor Speaks: Thank you Mr. Bush for giving me something to write about.

It is a hard job writing a fresh editorial every day of the week. It has been relatively easy recently with our premier McKeeva Bush in pole position. Thank you Mr. Bush. There is even a morsel concerning him today because he has left the country. He is in Curacao attending the First High-level Caribbean […]

The Editor Speaks: If the port faces a re-tender, I have the perfect solution

There is much talk throughout the media of the George Town cruise facilities having to go out for a re-tender, as there is strong doubt that the present negotiations with China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) will meet the UK’s expected “standards of good governance”. Our lead story today spells out the concerns UK Minister for […]

The Editor Speaks: Well done Alden

It is an unusual event for me to applaud our leader of the opposition Hon. Alden McLaughlin for at last ending his comparative silence on serious governmental matters, allowing the single independent North Side MLA, Ezzard Miller, to do all the talking. After receiving the draft bill for the referendum, Mr. McLaughlin said the draft […]

The Editor Speaks: Please sir, it wasn’t me.

The shocking news that has hit us regarding the Cayman Islands Premier, Hon. McKeeva Bush, illustrates my point in my weekend editorial about persons in glass houses should not throw stones. Little did I know then that an explosion has happened the size of one that could emanate from the dynamite that is the subject […]

Please sir, it wasn’t me. The shocking news that has hit us regarding the Cayman Islands Premier, Hon. McKeeva Bush, illustrates my point in my weekend editorial about persons in glass houses should not throw stones.

Mac knows nothing and Arden cleared

“People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones” is an old and often used proverb that means: “Those who are vulnerable should not attack others” and in other words, “don’t gossip about people if you have secrets of your own.” When Premier, Hon. McKeeva Bush reported East End MLA and former Cabinet Minister, Arden […]
