  • Basil for BARROW Errol Walton (Barrow Errol Walton)
  • Errol Barrow studied Law at the Inns of Court and Economics at the London School of Economics, concurrently, gaining those degrees in 1949 and 1950 respectively. His brebreak with the Barbados Labour Party, led by Grantley Adams, was because he felt thathat the Party was moving too slowly, not that it was moving too fast. In the 1980s, he was scathing in his criticism of the Reagan administration in the US, once referring to Reagan as "that cowboy in the White House". He also referred to Reagan as a "zombie" and as someone who "was programmed".
