Rivers dismisses Bush criticism over no-quorum action

Opposition Leader McKeeva Bush told Cayman 27 West Bay voters won’t soon forget his fellow West Bay representative’s antics on the LA floor last week.

Mr. Bush is, of course, referring to MLA Tara Rivers.

“As you know, many of them are long livers. They live long. I’m not fooled by this, and Tara has not convinced me that this was not a gimmick,” said Mr. Bush.

Last Wednesday (13 April), Minister Rivers was the sole presence from the government bench at that morning’s special session of the LA.

She called attention to the lack of quorum, and per standing orders, the meeting had to be adjourned.

Mr. Bush called her actions shenanigans, but she told Cayman 27 West Bay voters are savvy enough to separate truth from fiction.

“You know, West Bay voters are very discerning voters,” said Ms. Rivers. “And they certainly know how to make sense out of nonsense as it relates to what they hear and what they see.”

The LA special session is adjourned until 9 AM on April 25th, and it will have to dispose of two motions into police matters before continuing to its regular business, scheduled for 10AM  the same day.
