Barbados Prime Minister Announces New Cabinet

OUR APOLOGIES

To Auntie Moses and others who were offended by our lack of writing skills last night.

We were a little “tired” and should not have been posting. I would like to assure everyone that none of us were driving last night as the party was nearby. BFP has now “fixed up” this article with the missing names and also removed the parts that offended Auntie and a few others judging by the emails.

Once again, our sincere apologies and we will heed our readers’ advice to go a little easier on the partying.

Sorry.

Marcus, Cliverton, and Robert

We have reservations about Thompson taking on the Minister of Finance position. In the next few days we will expand upon these thoughts.
