(CNS): Various events, projects and programmes are already underway as Cayman counts down towards the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations on the monarch’s official birthday weekend early next month. Most of the events are free with family-friendly activities, such as the commemorative exhibit that began on Commonwealth Day in the foyer of the Parliament and the Song and Jingle Competition. During the Discovery Day holiday weekend, one of the many events is the charity Auto Show in downtown George Town.

The Jubilee weekend events will be launched with the lighting of beacons on Cayman Brac at Christopher Columbus Gardens and at Pedro St. James on Grand Cayman, and end with the Queen’s Birthday Garden Party on the grounds of Government House and a fireworks display that evening.

For full more details on the numerous activities see the latest release from GIS here.

    This is the same woman and her son Charles who regularly sought advice on various issues from Jimmy Savile (be careful if you have to google him to find out who he was). And people look up to/idolise these idiots. Surprising how easily people are brainwashed by all this.

    Why are we celebrating some of the biggest social scroungers in history? Hopefully she’ll perish soon and then comes her greatest contribution to these Islands 2 or possibly 3 public holidays. What a joke the monarchy are, nobody wants to see old Sausage Fingers Charles as King and let’s not get started on old Epstein’s best buddy the sex pest Andrew. And people look up to these idiots – pathetic.

    I remember celebrating tbe Silver Jubilee in 1977 when I was in boarding school.
    Like good little automatons we were programmed with the message.
    I bought my Mum a china souvenir cup.
    As the years have passed, I have been incredibly disappointed in Elizabeth.
    Her country has been dismantled by dishonest politicians and her silence conveys assent.
    I am somewhat broken about this. As children, we are presented with role models.
    For me, Queen Elizabeth ceased to be a role model years ago.
    Fortunately I have now found my role model in a humble carpenter from Nazareth, Israel.
    He has never disappointed me, rather the other way around, but His compassion always lifts me back up.

    God speed on your journeys, fellow pilgrims. See you on the other side.

    Let’s celebrate a woman who refuses to pay the taxes her citizens pay. Mrs Windsor’s estate is exempt from inheritance tax so as “to protect the integrity of the monarchy”. And they keep their wills secret too for the same spurious reason. Her husband’s dodgy activities are unknown given the Queen asked for his will to be sealed for 90 years.

    Query, does the Crown Estate own anything in Cayman? How about her personal estate?
