(CNS): The PPM opposition member for East End Arden McLean and Edna Moyle the former speaker of the House are currently in Barbados attending the State Funeral of the Prime Minister of Barbados, David Thompson, who died last month. They are representing the People’s Progressive Movement at the late Prime Minister’s funeral who was a personal friend of the Leader of the Opposition, Kurt Tibbetts and other members of the PPM. Tibbetts said he was unable to travel to Barbados as the Third Meeting of the Legislative Assembly commences on Wednesday but he sent a personal letter to the family of his late friend.

The PPM said its relationship with David Thompson goes back even before the party was officially launched. Thompson, who was then Leader of the Opposition in Barbados, was instrumental in the creation of the PPM, providingguidance and advice to the leadership in the formative years of the party.

Over the years, he visited Cayman a number of times speaking at PPM organized events including a public Lecture on constitutional issues back in 2002 but he last visited Cayman in April 2009.
