Replica Viking Ship that sailed to the Isle of Man from Norway

(CNS): McKeeva Bush, the Speaker of the Cayman Islands Legislative Assembly, has travelled to the Isle of Man to join in the 2019 Tynwald Day celebrations this weekend in the British Crown Dependency believed to have the oldest continuous parliamentary body in the world. Bush is said to be representing Cayman at the event, where he and his wife, Kerry, were invited by Stephen Rodan, the President of Tynwald, which is the island’s parliament.

The celebrations include a “shipping” theme to reflect the island’s rich maritime heritage, and a tough but successful sea journey 40 years ago to the Isle of Man from Norway.

The voyage aboard the replica of a 9th Century Viking ship, was crewed by Manx and Norwegian sailors, and the celebrations will include the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate the anniversary of the landing.

The Isle of Man is a self-governing British Crown Dependency located in the Irish Sea between Britain and Ireland.

    Dear Lord,

    I know I only ask for help when I’m in trouble, but I really need Your help today, Lord.

    Please Lord, find a way to keep Bush in the UK and prevent him from never returning to Cayman, if it is Your will.

    We have suffered enough.

      Be careful what you wish for! His expenses (front of plane, top of the class hotels) will already be high, just think how much it would cost to keep him there!
      At least you know that a quick trip there and back will be good value, say $15000 and for that you get………, actually what do you get?

      Isle of Man is as much part of the UK as Cayman is

    He scratched Alden’s back and now Alden has scratched his. This is how Cayman has always worked and always will.

    But the people of West Bay love the man so he can do whatever he wants.

    He is King for life and the people of Cayman allow him to travel the world at our expense.

    Great job if you can get it.

    It always amazes me that the man who can barely speak English, barely read and dropped out of High school is someone that Caymanians trust and allow to represent them

    The sheer embarrassment that I feel when I listen to him ramble on
