Will Barbados' BLP go the way of the PNP?

- "Prime Minister David Thompson of Barbados has reshuffled his Cabinet in a manner that clearly indicates whom he thinks is the best person to succeed him.
This is the fourth Cabinet in just under three years and, in our view, signals that he is into succession planning.
Mr Thompson who is 48 years old, is very seriously ill with pancreatic cancer. He took sick leave to receive treatment in the United States and returned to office recently but is shedding the burdensome portfolio of the Ministry of Finance while retaining the posts of Prime Minister and Minister of Defence."
