“Health challenges remain”, but for now the PM is back in charge
David Thompson and his family arrived back in Barbados on Sunday evening and today it was announced that he’s back in charge. Acting Prime Minister Freundel Stuart returns to his post as Attorney General.
No matter the politics, all Bajans are pleased to see Prime Minister Thompson and his family back on the island after his months away for medical treatment. As we said back in May when the story about the PM’s health broke, “Barbados Free Press joins in prayers for Prime Minister Thompson and his family. We hope his medical troubles turn out to be nothing too serious and that he will be well soon.”
Prime Minister Thompson returns to a fully boiling pot that includes an economy in trouble, the current NHC scandal and the failure of the DLP government to implement any of the major promises of the 2007 election platform.
We’ll give him a week to settle in, but then he’d better be prepared to defend his wicket.
