A Nation Mourns
Prime Minister of Barbados, the Honourable David Thompson, has passed away.
According to reports, the Prime Minister died at his private residence in St. Philip at 2:10 a.m.
He was diagnosed in September with pancreatic cancer after undergoing medical tests since May.
At the moment, Cabinet is in session and we await word on who will be sworn in as the next Prime Minister of Barbados, more than likely DPM Freundel Stuart.
On behalf of Cheese-on-Bread, I wish to extend deepest condolences to the PM's family, friends, colleagues and to my fellow Barbadians at this difficult time.
