GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Lawmakers in the Cayman Islands passed a vote of no confidence on Tuesday ousting embattled Premier McKeeva Bush from office one week after he was arrested on suspicion of corruption.

Members of parliament voted 11-3 with one abstention to remove Bush as the head of government in the British territory, a major financial center and offshore home to more than half of the world's hedge funds.
