The problem is there is a lack of people taking personal responsibility for their action – first and foremost the premier, who is claiming that he signed “under duress”. It must be remembered that he gave not just his word but, as our leader, the word of the Cayman people that he would carry through on the undertaking. He is now backing down on that, breaking not just his word but, by default, the word of the Cayman people.
Our elected UDP members, who are turning a deaf ear to the desires of the people who elected them, are not taking personal responsibility. They were elected, not to do what is best for the premier, but for the people. They are not doing so and will be held responsible by the people for blindly following the premier’s lead with no consideration for what is best to save our country.
The Cayman public is also not taking personal responsibility. In the comment section here on CNS and comments on the Compass website we have hundreds of people giving their opinions of what should be done. People are calling for the premier to step down, for the UK to take over, for the UDP members to deal with it, and all the while doing it under the guise of “Anonymous” and other hide-behind-names. How can we expect to be taken seriously if we are not willing to take personal responsibility for our beliefs and comments?
Maybe I can start a trend.
I, Len Layman, believe that the premier should step aside. I believe that if he doesn’t, the other UDP members should force it. If neither of these things happens, we should not blame the UK for the outcome. I believe a large majority of Caymanians believe as I do.
Agree with me or disagree with me but please stand up and do it openly. We can make a difference if we do.
I believe if we all take personal responsibly we can change things for the better.
Just my opinion
