Miller calls for Bush excuses to end

Cayman News Service
Ezzard Miller MP

(CNS): The independent member for North Side, Ezzard Miller, is the first member of Parliament to react to what was revealed in court Thursday and Speaker McKeeva Bush’s formal admission of a violent assault on a woman. Having already called for his resignation previously, Miller said it was now time for everyone else in the Parliament to stop making excuses for Bush, hold him accountable and remove him from office.

“It’s disgraceful,” Miller told CNS, pointing out that the expletive-laden and bigoted WhatsApp message Bush had sent in the wake of the assault alone would have been enough to force the resignation of a speaker in any other country.

“If this was the UK, he would not even leave his house today,” Miller said, noting that not only would Bush be leaving his own house but he would be presiding over the historic renaming of the country’s House.

“The conversion of the Legislative Assembly to Parliament is a single sterling opportunity to return the dignity and respect to the institution that has been eroded by the unchecked and unaccountable disgraceful behaviour of the current holder of the position of speaker,” he said about the historical celebrations due to take place Friday afternoon, namely the renaming of the Legislative Assembly to the Cayman Islands Parliament.

“Instead the norms and honour system of our institutions just don’t seem to apply,” he said. “This is certainly not the way to start the Parliament.”

Miller told CNS that he was torn over the desire to take part in such an important historic moment for Cayman but had decided he would not sit in the chamber during Bush’s entrance, as he intends to once again engage in his lone protest.

So far, no other MP has spoken about the situation regarding Bush. CNS has sent questions to all serving members and we will be publishing any responses we receive. However, Miller issued a direct response and restated his position that the speaker should do the honourable thing and resign.

“I have further stated that if he was found guilty and did not do the honourable thing and resign when he was charged, the members of the Legislative Assembly should remove him,” he said. “Now that the details of the speaker’s behaviour have been revealed in court, including the text… it is even more important for the sake of the dignity and honour of the position of speaker that the current speaker be removed.”

Miller had seconded a motion of no confidence in the speaker when he was charged, which had been moved by Opposition Leader Arden McLean. But that was rejected by then Acting Speaker Barbara Conolly based on the idea that the parliament could not discuss matters that were still before the court. It was therefore not placed on the agenda for the legislative business.

Miller said he was astounded by the capacity of his legislative colleagues ability to excuse and forgive the speaker’s behaviour regardless. Time and time again, he said, politicians, especially those supporting the coalition government, always had a reason to wait before they act when it came to the speaker.

“One of the many faults that I am constantly accused of is my consistency in my positions on matters such as these and my refusal to trade my principles, or go along just to get along,” Miller added.

      “You people” – being the good people of West Bay West, not everyone on Cayman. But if we are pitching rocks, lets not forget about “you people” who let him sit on the Speaker Chair – starting with the Premier, who would clearly sup with the devil if it keeps him in power, or David Wight who apparently is prepared to eat his own vomit – and each and every one of the other MPs (with the exception of Ezzard) who has stayed absolutely silent. No, not even absolutely silent – happy to smile and pose for photographs – SMH Tara Rivers, a woman who is responsible for gender affairs, even happy to shake the hand that was used to beat another woman. Sickening, the lot of them. Our MPs love to quote the Bible – how about Mathew 7:16. .

    There’s only one problem with the political system in this country, it’s not the politicians.
    It is the voting Caymanians.
    Look at the politicians that have been elected down through the years. Dinosaur homophobes along with Jon Jon jackass types.

    This is not the UK ,but be reassured fellow citizens as we have seen of late that once you go along with their whims and wishes and plans that Benefit the UK only that their representatives will willfully ignore complaints, cordone corruption and criminal behavior conspire with unsavory local & foreign business leaders who’s political and economic interests is align or isin sync with theirs, To harass or malign or persecute anyone who even mentions or challenges their complicity even in these publicly embarrassing situations. In fact even further than that in some instances usurping and using undue influence in legal matters before our courts. The two blatantly bias matters recently before our courts proves this to be the real state of affairs here in Cayman and it abundantly clear that there exist two tiers of justice one for us mere mortals and one for the political and economic Lords of George Town and Cayman Brac. Not taking any of the spotlight off this situation but what about Pablo’s finest?? and his international debut??

  20. Fair and Balanced says:

    Fellow Caymanians,

    It is a SAD day in any Country when its highest law-making body, its Parliament, is Presided over by a Speaker who has pled guilty to 2 counts of common assault and, to make matters worse, it is an assault by a man on a female.

    In any other Country on this PLANET McKeeva would have to leave that position.

    Think of how ridiculous it is that Members of Parliament have to bow to McKeeva?

    That this situation persists says two things:

    a) McKeeva thinks so much of himself and so little of others that, a lack of common decency means that he won’t resign and leave his post as Speaker;
    b) it also shows how weak the present Premier McLaughlin’s Government is, he cannot ask for McKeeva’s resignation as Speaker, for fear of his Government collapsing.

    It is truly SAD and WRONG.

    I hope Premier McLaughlin recognises that if the Opposition plays it correctly, this could become a damaging 2021 election point against the PPM – that his Government is weak, it is afraid of McKeeva and it condones wrongdoing.

    I also wonder what Kenneth Bryan’s position is now towards McKeeva, now that McKeeva has pled guilty? Mr Bryan, you still support McKeeva just because he visited the Courts when your case was being held of assaulting Police?

    What is the Official Opposition’s stance on McKeeva remaining as Speaker?

    McKeeva, in the name of God, go!!

    • Anonymous says:

      The official Opposition’s stance on Mckeeva remaining as Speaker is that he and the Leader of the Opposition and playing and planning with each other behind the scenes in the hope that he can remain Speaker and the Leader of Opposition will be the next Premier. Those many meetings in West Bay, he showing up in different cars, trying to be incognito while he is visiting Mac in WB.

      I hope the East End people and the West Bay people come to their senses in May 2021

    I don’t like Ezzard’s political views, particularity his dislike of expatriates and disparaging their contribution to the economy, but it seems he is the ONLY moral person in the house when it comes to basic ethics and and parliamentary procedure. I am an expat, and Ezzard would probably happily put me on a plane tomorrow, but I tell you, he has more cojones and basic fundamental honesty and ethics than the rest of them put together, who would sell their mothers (and Cayman) for a dollar. Sad that expats like me can see that, but apparently vote carrying Caymanians cannot.

      • Anonymous says:

        I have met Ezzard in person. I think I have a fairly good understanding of his views – that Cayman is for Caymanians, and expats are necessary to support Cayman, but their interests are subordinate to Caymanians. Even though I am an expat I can perfectly understand that, and I would probably have exactly the same perspective in relation to my home country.

        I hope one day be Caymanian, and persuade Ezzard and others that I have done the hard yards and have the commitment to be worthy of that. My disappointment, and that of any number of other long term expats with similar aspirations to citizenship I suspect, is that the country to which we feel a commitment seems less interested in holding their elected representatives to account in areas that are critical to all of our combined interests – whether expat, paper Caymanian, generational Caymanian, or hoped to be Caymanians – than we are. The captains of the ship seem to be happily partying and the ship is heading for the rocks, yet the only people who seem to care are those that dont have the votes to change who is at the helm!

    The pressure needs to be placed on the “Unity Government” and Kenneth Bryan for allowing him to remain in his role as Speaker and in his role as MLA

    Once he is removed as Speaker he should also be suspended from attending meetings of the House under Standing Order 41 Section 14 for disorderly conduct and bringing the House into disrepute and if necessary the standing orders should be amended which can now be done in the Parliament unilaterally to allow for instance an indefinite suspension if the Premier and Leader of the Opposition along with 2/3rds of the house are in agreement

    … Violence against women is a public health issue.
    … the Caribbean is one of the most violent regions in the world and experiences a deplorable level of violence against women and girls.
    Here in the Cayman Islands we are not spared the evils of gender-based violence, which by definition includes rape, sexual assault, domestic violence, trafficking in women, forced prostitution, sexual harassment and harmful cultural practices.
    This social tolerance of violence and victim blaming and shaming is unacceptable. Those who would turn a blind eye to violence or who discriminate against victims of gender-based crimes by treating them differently than they would a person who states that he or she has been burgled or assaulted are not a part of the solution.
    Government has a responsibility to keep people safe and the anti-violence legal framework in our nation is strong and progressive.

        West Bayer’s open your eyes, listen with your ears, comprehend and do justice to these islands. Stop voting for illiterate, women beaters, bar room brawlers, government credit card casino player, and bare faced hypocrite knocking down the church door o cover up sins.
        Kick the bottle to the curve and elect a representative that equates to honorable.

    IF he is not removed what does it say about being an MLA. Do whatever you like, whenever you like, and if that includes beating women, then NO problem. He is a disgrace and a total embarrassment to The Cayman Islands. He needs to be removed.

      Now we’ll see if Kenneth Bryan agrees he should be removed..

        Kenneth has a slight challenge, given his record in front of the courts. To be fair, he didn’t beat women, he just tried to sell them class A drugs.

    What are all the Members of Parliament going to do, or wish, for victim Livia Kwong, and the countless nameless other female victims of violent male privilege, drunkenness, and abuse? Why are those official statements so hard to write? Aren’t we 6 months to an election?!?

    Well said Mr. Miller, now let’s see if any of our other elected members has the gonads, ethical and moral fortitude to follow suit.

    Not holding my breath for this to happen.

    I hope that none of them return in 2021, except for Ezzard – he is the only one that stands up against wrong doing.

    The question isn’t whether Bush should resign, because we know he hasn’t and won’t; the question is whether the 17 others will throw him out, not just as a Speaker, but also as an MLA. There are also 17 official position statements that haven’t yet been issued, for whatever reason…

      His overinflated ego will never allow him to resign! 🤬 Oh well, throwing him out would be even better as it knocks him off his self-instituted pedestal and sends a far stronger statement to the public. If the other MPs are too weak to address this very obvious matter, vote them all out!

    No real arguments here but it always amused me that the ‘no confidence’ motion referred to in the story was proposed by Arden who I remember having quite a few interesting nights out in Durty Reid’s.

    Majority of those in the LA right now are women beaters, their stories are told in detail all around the Island.

    If he had an iota of dignity and respect for Parliament, he would resign and not try to run for office again, but he thinks he is God’s gift to Cayman’s politics. A disgrace is what he is.

      He bought a Doctorate in Disgraceful Behavior years ago! As if to prove the point, he still insists others use it, even after it was officially retracted by the institution!

        Got the honorary doctorate from an institution that has no authority to confer doctorates. Also refers to himself as Dr. The Hon which he is not allowed to with honorary doctorates.

        But no one stops him. Everyone appears scared of him.

        We now live in a society where wrong is right and right is wrong. God help us!

          All these honorary UCCI doctors call themselves “Doctor”, the worst are Mary Lawrence and Steve McField. Then you get sycophants like Orett Connor and Loxley Banks calling them Dr as if they were medical doctors. Its so pathetic.

          2:20 pm. You left out the most important thing, “No Justice”.
