The Editor Speaks: Thank you Mac for the laugh of the week

Colin WilsonwebI am still laughing. Lots.

I have to thank our ex-premier (and as he likes to be now known, Cayman’s First Premier), McKeeva Bush, for making it happen.

I was with the cheerful Eastern Avenue “boys” and Mac supporters on Tuesday (19) evening at the opening of the United Democratic Party’s (UDP) headquarters on Eclipse Drive, close to the Television Centre.

Bush is quite at home now as I have seen him frequently entering the Church of God of Prophecy’s Victory Tabernacle on Eastern Avenue, just down the road from his new headquarters.

And I am so happy I went to eat, drink, mingle and chat for a short while with the excited and curious group of just over 200 who were there on this auspicious (or suspicious) occasion.

And Mac did not disappoint when he spoke. He stated the current minority government was illegal!”

“I am not going to be like the opposition that they were to me,” he shouted to us, “and cause trouble for the interim government even though I don’t know what we’ve got. However, it doesn’t matter as they will all be gone in a few months when they are voted out by the people at the election and we [the UDP] are returned to office.”

I laughed and shouted. What good fun it was. And I noticed many of his new church members there, too. “Alleluia” they screamed and I nearly joined in.

On the platform with Mac was Mike Adam, Ellio Solomon, Renard Moxam and John Foster, who MC’d the event.

John Foster, my colleague at CITN and the country’s still favourite weatherman.

And don’t wonder whether the ex TV weatherman will be running for the UDP for George Town in the May Election. Mr. Foster has already verbally confirmed to me he is.

And I am still laughing.
