Bernie Bush MP.

Independent Candidate for West Bay North, Bernie Bush, walked off from the Cayman Crosstalk district debates, on Tuesday morning. The debate was hosted by Barrie Quappe and Compass Media journalist Andrel Harris, and his opponent, Rolston Anglin was also in attendance.

I would like to beg you a small favor, and Mr. Anglin can have all the time to respond. Its simple, I didn’t want to disrespect you or the listeners. I didn’t want in anyway to feel that I didn’t think that this was important. But I have a principle problem with the same how when this station fired Johnathan Piercy I walked off, I could never do that to you (referring to Barrie) (…) Any medium I feel that treats Caymanians the way Woody was treated, I don’t want to promote or be apart of. (…) This is a principal problem, I accept that the way a lot of people in the public and myself feel is the way that Woody DaCosta was treated was 100% wrong, the only good about it was they got you to replace him. Nobody should be treated that way ,with such disrespect. I have a problem promoting anything that treats Caymanians that way. (…)

The hosts, who were clearly not expecting that statement from Mr. Bush, handled the situation very well, and continued the debate with Mr. Anglin.

Real Cayman News reached out to Mr. Bernie Bush for comment and invited him to do an interview tomorrow afternoon, we are still awaiting a response.

Real Cayman News has not reached out to Compass Media for a comment.

    It was quite unprofessional of Mr. Bush. I don’t always agree with the compass, but I also dont always agree with Marl road, news service, Caymanian times and indeed real cayman news.
