  1. As everyone is aware, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    More will follow, and not just pertaining to these specific charges.

    I don’t know why I brought up the obvious, but what the hell.

  2. The trouble with this is that the Cayman Islands think they are the centre of the universe,funnily enough the rest of the world doesn’t. This hasn’t made news headlines anywhere we care …. No. If you vote for corruption that’s what you get!!!!!!
