MLA critical of ‘opposition for opposition’s sake’ politics

Recent changes in party affiliation have changed the face of the Legislative Assembly, giving the Progressives-led government a smaller majority to start the new year.

George Town MLA Winston Connolly told Cayman 27 he’s proud to be independent.

He said amid the alphabet soup of the differing political factions, UDP, PPM, etcetera, the greater good of the country can sometimes take a back seat to the back and forth of the two party system.

“One of the reasons why I don’t want to join a party is what I’ve seen in certain instances, the behavior between the two parties. To be opposition just for oppositions sake, to be adversarial on every single point, it doesn’t help the country. Why can’t we just sit down as grown men and women and really say, let’s be heading in the same direction,” said Mr. Connolly.

Mr. Connolly is critical of the ‘credit taking’ culture that exists today. He said a bi-partisan road map is needed for Cayman’s future.

He pointsed out that governments may change every four years, but the problems facing everyday Caymanians tend to stay the same.

    You Think ?, This is one of the biggest reason why nothing get done or if it does at such a slow pace and over priced. One party back peddles of everything the last administration started because it doesn’t help their agenda. Screw the country..

    These two Alden and Bush in general have been playing Cayman like their own little chess board for how many years now? Decades?
