Sample text

If that is not enough, then place names such as Worthing, Hastings and Trafalgar Square, with its statue of Lord Nelson, are sufficient to conjure up the idea of a tropical Tewkesbury-on-Sea. Even the local football teams carry such names as Everton, United and Spurs. However, it is in the game of cricket that the greatest resemblance lies, for herein can be learned all the gentlemanly virtues of honour, team spirit, respect for authority, grit, endurance, stiff upper lip in times of adversity, being a good loser, and doing one's best for monarch and country.

With a swelling of the ranks of those in favour of the Royalist cause, it is no small wonder that the Cavaliers of Barbados strongly resisted Roundhead attempts to diminish their independence. Even when a task force headed by Ayscue in 1652 forced their eventual surrender, they still managed to negotiate very favourable terms of agreement in what was to form the basis for the constitution of the island, with its firm guarantees of civil and religious rights. Not surprisingly, there are several commentators who view this episode as characteristic of a Barbadian spirit of autonomy, one which resurfaced time and again in disputes between governors and assemblymen, in local opposition to the hated stamp duty of 1663, in the confederation crisis of 1876, and indeed, many would argue, one which is still evident today.
