Newly appointed Leader of the Opposition and MP for St. John, David Thompson, was impressive Wednesday before the media – but our sources say that he was even more impressive in a late Tuesday evening meeting with certain unnamed but well-funded admirers who have previously supported the government!
Does this meeting fortell advance notice of a change in the wind? Or, are certain people just hedging their bets? And the most important question of all… will Mr. Thompson (whom this writer greatly respects) remain true to the principles he so ably espoused earlier that day? Will he be able to ignore the siren call of easy money that has corrupted so many in the current government?
Whatever happens, 2006 promises to be one of the most interesting years in politics that has been seen in Barbados for at least a decade.
