Condolences to St. Lucia
Cheese-on-bread extends its condolences to the Government and people of St. Lucia on the passing of their Father of Independence, Sir John George Melvin Compton. Sir John was one of the region's great political stalwarts, and will be greatly missed. His funeral has been set for Saturday, September 22.
Former parliamentarian Stephenson King, who acted as Prime Minister since April after Sir John fell ill, was officially sworn in as Prime Minister yesterday.
Good luck, PM King. I think you're going to need it....
