Westlake Ý 9 review Westlake describes the British invasion of the Caribbean island of Anguilla on March 19 1969 an engagement dubbed by Time as Britain's Bay of Piglets What was this tiny uerulous democracy black and white petit bourgeois all after This was a puzzlement to almost everyone particularly since the first rebel flag hoisted was the Union Jack Mainly it boiled down to an abhorrence of the paternal dictatorship of Colonel Bradshaw on the neighboring island of St Kitts nee St Chri.
