The large signs that are posted at government offices, reminding the public that it is an offence to commit any sort of wrongdoing to a woman (sorry I dont recall the exact wording), do they not have that sign posted at the Health Ministry?

This was strictly a self preservation move by Alden he know's that he owes Ozzie for his support and winning the election although it came at the price of allowing him to control the outcome of the dump and keep it out of Bodden Town.

I am curious what this will mean for the dump, will this be used a justification for long delays. However if the new waste management facility ends up being built in Bodden Town because all other plans fall through it will save face for Ossie

I take issue with Mack's comment that the severity of his tirade had nothing to do with gender. I cannot imagine him speaking to a man in this threatening way. If this had been a male expat in this position formal charges would have been filed immediately for Workplace harassment and abuse and Ozzy knew this when he targeted this high ranking female. Caymanians are quite adept at treating their own with contempt and have mastered the art of the Saboteur motivated by jealously and a thirst for power and control. Proof positive that CIG MLA's are pure of heart Chauvinists and The lowly women in this country have no advocates!!!

I have a whole mouth full to say, but this is what I am going to say at the moment. The voters of Cayman population need to understand that when they voted last election they knew exactly what they were doing, they voted with a vengeance only to remove McKeva Bush from office alone, They did that. Now everyone is hollering about what they did and should not have done. TOUGH LUCK, I say, drink from the cup you choose.
Now my further comments are; that since Ozzie, have been relieved of his responsibilities as Minister responsible for Health service, and is now been given the time to fully deal with Community affairs, youth and sports, I should expect he will, and the three other representatives elected can eventually find the time to focus on the Bodden Town district you represent. Why are you all hiding from your people? I think it is time that you get in touch. Nothing has been achieved in two years. It is not like there is only one or even two of you; there is FOUR, all from the same party. Ozzie Bodden, Al Suckoo, Wayne Panton, and Anthony Eden. As a resident of this district, and a very good political watch dog, I believe the people would like to hear something from someone. Telling us that we do not have to wait until 2015 or 2016 on the eve of 2017 election that life will be made more comfortable for residents in this district. We want the encouragement of having these offices in this district. A class A bank, CUC, Cable wireless, Water Co. Small businesses of food etc. In the same breath, will one of the four answer WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE PROPERTY OF THE OLD CLINIC. and also WHAT IS HAPPENING AT COE WOOD BEACH PROJECT. Why are people in the district living without lights because they do not have a job. We are tired of promises and excuses, and come 2017 you all will feel the pinch on voting day.

This is a total disgrace to this country. I would not be able to lift my eyes for shame, let alone face the youth or anyone for quite a long time.

Healthcare co-pays, benefit reductions recommended

The good news, from Mr. Archer's perspective, is that Cayman has time to correct the problem.

That's not exactly correct. It is not correcting the problem - it is just shifting responsibility. The problem is non-sustainable healthcare cost. Making somebody else to pay for it just shifts costs and responsibilities. Not solving the problem. And with government trying to shift problem to individuals instead of working to solve it - expectations are bad, as if it is shifted to individuals, bargaining power will be lower and any chances of solving this problem in the future will get slimmer and slimmer...

He should step down from all of his Ministerial duties, voluntarily or not. Mr. Bodden obviously has a problem controlling his temper and staff members in the other departments which fall under his responsibility must also be anxiously awaiting the day his temper flares again. I am not attacking Mr. Bodden on a personal level. Quite the contrary. I am addressing this matter strictly from a professional (I use the term very lightly) point of view.

Mr Premier, this man has a raging temper and could be dangerous, why expose our youth to him. Our youth deserve better than that. The best place for you to put him is in charge of the dump.

If she'd said anything or wrote anything in a email to Mr Bodden that would make him think she deserved that level of beratement you can best believe that it would have already came out and he would not have put an apology in writing and even if she did it's still no excuse for his outburst of hatred. I am sure on the other hand that plenty of effort is being put into deflecting attention away from this as we speak. In short form she will be given a good deal of hush money and reassigned probably to a higher paying position to avoid any contractual issues or legal ramifications that would make it hard to sweep this under the rug. After that the light will simmer and go out as the next big issues arises.
