January 2020 Edition.

SPRINGBOK CYBER NEWSLETTER

January 2020 edition

The result of last month’s British General Election of course brought us great joy and excitement. It not only meant that Brexit can now proceed speedily and unhindered, but it also meant that the failed ideology of socialism, which surprisingly re-surfaced under Corbyn’s ascendancy in the Labour Party, had been overwhelmingly rejected by the British people, hopefully never to arise again.

There were however two most worrying aspects which emerged from the General Election, namely the results in both Scotland and Northern Ireland. Although the SNP did not “sweep he board” in Scotland as many commentators inaccurately claimed (they won only 48 of Scotland’s 59 seats), their increase of support from the 2017 General Election when they appeared to be on the wane, was a source of great concern. The SNP’s percentage of the vote was only 45% however, meaning that the combined pro-Unionist vote stood at 55% - in other words the Unionist/Nationalist split in Scotland was almost exactly the same as it was at the 2014 Referendum. In Northern Ireland the result was even more worrying however, as the decline in support for the DUP, caused in large-part because of their “absolutist” attitude towards the Government’s Brexit proposals we believe, has meant that Nationalist parties now hold more seats than Unionist parties, with Sinn Féin/IRA candidates even gaining a seat. A close examination of the voting figures shows that the percentage of votes for the pro-Unionist parties (DUP, UUP and TUV) hasn’t declined all that much, and when it has then it has gone mainly to the wishy-washy appeasing Alliance Party. Quite clearly therefore greater Unionist co-operation is vital in the future, and the Alliance Party must be shown to be the dangerous irrelevancy which they actually are. A subsequent development of great concern has been apparently increasing liaison between the SNP and SF/IRA, in spite of the latter’s clear connections to terrorism. It must therefore be a primary priority of the strengthened Conservative Government to counteract support for these two poisonous parties, and in the long-run to arrange for the abolition of both the Holyrood and Stormont quangos (the latter certainly in its present “power-sharing” form).

But there are many other important matters which the rejuvenated Government of Boris Johnson must address as a matter of urgency as well as taking steps to strengthen the Union. Immigration by those not of British ethnic origin must be halted and steps must be taken to repatriate those already here. Closer links with the core Commonwealth and the United States must be pursued in the post-Brexit environment, and Defence spending must be greatly increased. Environmental safeguards and animal welfare must also be given high priority. Perhaps most importantly, however, the insidious influence of Leftist forces within the media must be tackled, and “political correctness” in general has to be eliminated from national life – and this means that the token non-Whites within the Government must be removed.

The British General Election result hasn’t been the only dramatic development since last month’s SCN was published however. The elimination of the Iranian terrorist commander Qassem Soleimani by US forces has been another event of great significance which can only engender great encouragement and satisfaction around the Western world. In the November 2019 Edition of the SCN we were highly critical of President Trump for withdrawing US troops from Syria and thus causing greater instability in the Middle East which could only result in even more unwanted Asian immigration into Europe. His action in ordering the removal of Qassem Soleimani – which was accompanied by a return of US forces stationed in the area – has more than made up for his earlier mistake however. Just as we were critical of President Trump in November, so now we salute his latest actions.

SPRINGBOK CLUB NEWS

Alas it must be reported that in spite of great efforts throughout the year the Springbok Club was unable to organise any “Raising of the Flag” ceremony during 2019. This means that we failed to fulfill our promise to Peter Sladden that we would ensure the continuation of this ceremony for posterity, which we made to him before his death in 2017 – though it does mean that we are more determined than ever to ensure that the ceremony is resumed from 2020 onwards! We do now have a potential new venue lined-up for 2020, but in case this does not prove feasible we ask all supporters and readers if they could possibly assist us with finding a new venue? The most important attribute is of course that the venue must have a fixed flag-pole, but ideally it should also have good indoor and outdoor facilities for catering with a fairly large crowd. Any financial assistance which could be given would also be most useful.

----------------------------

The Springbok Club’s 2020 Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday 22nd January 2020 in central London, commencing at 19.00 hrs.

All fully paid-up members of the Springbok Club are entitled to participate at this meeting, though only Honorary, Life and Full members will be allowed to vote or to stand for office. Associate members will however be allowed to attend and to participate in discussions.

The agenda will be as follows :-

1) Organiser’s report for 2019.

2) Treasurer’s report for 2019.

3) Election of officers to the Executive Committee and other appointments for 2020.

4) Motions for debate (if any).

5) Any other business.

All nominations for office and motions for debate must be proposed and seconded by Honorary, Life or fully paid-up Full members, and must be submitted in writing or by e-mail to the current Executive Committee at least 48 hours prior to the meeting.

Following the business side of proceedings (which should conclude at approximately 20.00 hrs.) there will be a special PowerPoint presentation given by Mr. Gary Vincent in order to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the 1820 Settlers. This presentation will include details about how the Settlers were selected, descriptions of the Settler ships Chapman and Nautilus, and the role played in the colonisation of the Eastern Cape by Sir Rafate Donkin – after whose wife Port Elizabeth was named. [Any supporter who is not a member of the Springbok Club but who would like to attend this section of the meeting should e-mail springbk@netcomuk.co.uk in order to be informed of the precise details.]

----------------------------

An itinerary of Springbok Club events for 2020 will be decided upon at the AGM, but provisionally they will include a museum trip in February, a celebration of van Riebeeck Day with a special South African guest speaker in April, and hopefully the “Raising of the Flag” ceremony in September.

------------------------------------------------------------------

PATRIOTIC FORUM NEWS

The Patriotic Forum was most honoured to welcome Major John Browne, the former Conservative MP for Winchester, as their guest speaker last month. Unfortunately a combination of the fact that this meeting had to be held on the same day as the General Election and the inclement weather that day meant that the turnout for this event was disappointingly low, but those who did attend certainly had a treat, as Major Browne gave a most captivating speech. In his talk he not only recalled his experiences in Parliament under the premiership of Margaret Thatcher (most particularly during the time of the Falklands War) but also gave his optimistic views about Britain’s future outside the EU, especially regarding the opportunities which this presented for closer UK/US relations and co-operation.

-----------------------

All donations and membership fees to the Patriotic Forum should be made payable to "Patriotic Press" and sent to: Patriotic Press, BM SAPAT, London WC1N 3XX, U.K. Membership rates currently stand at: £12.00 per annum for Annual Membership and £200.00 for Life Membership. Our bank account details in order to make direct bank transfer payments are available upon request.

-----------------------------

The Patriotic Forum will be holding a special meeting in order to celebrate New Zealand Day in February 2020, but rather than celebrating Australia Day as is traditionally done in 2020 the Patriotic Forum will instead hold a special Australia-themed event in April 2020 in order to commemorate the 250th Anniversary of Captain James Cook’s landing at Botany Bay. Further details about both these activities will be given in future editions of the SCN.

MESSAGE FROM SANWILD WILDLIFE SANCTUARY

We have recently received the following message from the SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary :-

“Dear SanWild friends,

“My apologies for being so quiet. Things have been hectic and seeing that we are only a handful of people at SanWild, the workload has been a lot.

“We might have some very exciting news coming along soon, but for now please hold thumbs and send prayers our way! This will secure the future of SanWild and many more animal rescues where animals will find their forever home. All will be revealed in due course.

“As always, I really do not like asking for donations but I am going to admit SanWild is in heavy financial strain at the moment and we would appreciate any help, no donation will be too small. Donations will be allocated to our daily running costs from animal feed to diesel for the pumps to the maintenance of the security fences.

“On Saturday poachers breached our fences (first time in a year) and tried to poison our lions. It seems they only got to one of our lions but with the quick response of the team on the ground a vet could pull her through, so she is fine and not harmed.

“Some more uplifting news is that Mala that came all the way from AERU - African Elephant Research Unit is doing very well and Rebecca and Mala have become inseparable and you can see the love on both faces!

“At SanWild we even cater for the smaller gritters, so meet some new squirrel friends.

“I am really hoping to inform you all of amazing news with the next mail-out. In the interim, we would really appreciate your help, and please remember no donation is too small. Every donation helps.

“Lots of love to everyone, and thank you to everyone who has not given up on SanWild.

BT SPORT EXCUSES TERRORISM

All decent people must surely have been totally sickened by the recent documentary screened by BT Sport entitled "Stop the Tour". This was an account of the extreme left-wing disruptions of the 1969/70 Springbok Rugby Tour to the British Isles and the planned 1970 Springbok Cricket Tour of the UK. The long-term aim of the sinister forces behind these disruptions was not only to prevent friendly sporting contacts between the British and South African people, but rather to overthrow the civilised structure of South African society and to replace it by a terrorist regime. The tactics used by the disrupters themselves could furthermore only be described as quasi-terrorism, featuring as they did the sprinkling of tin-tacks on sports fields, the hi-jacking of a team bus and threats to use firearms to shoot off bails at Cricket matches. Although this programme didn't openly support terrorism, it was however sympathetic towards those who employed these quasi-terrorist tactics, and should therefore be condemned out of hand. Most sickening of all was an interview with a certain Peter Hain, the creature who organised the entire anti-South African subversion. The word "evil" is perhaps often over-used, but there seems to be no other word than "evil" which accurately describes Hain and his aims. He is an individual with apparently no redeeming features whatsoever, and for BT Sport to provide him with a platform to try to justify his violent actions is surely inexcusable. We therefore call upon everyone to protest to BT Sport about the production and screening of this highly offensive documentary. BT Sport should furthermore be severely criticised for hardly mentioning all of the pro-South African counter-demonstrations at the time. Those who took part in these counter-demonstrations can testify that they were far larger in support than the numbers of Hain's disgusting thugs - though alas, as they were peaceful and pro-democratic, they did not receive nearly as much publicity.

MORAL CRUSADER THREATENED

Caroline Farrow, the Campaigns Director for the UK and RoI for the CitizenGO pro-morality organisation, is currently facing a criminal prosecution and possible imprisonment as a result of a vicious and vindictive hate campaign being waged against her by pro-perversion activists. A report about her plight which we have received from the CitizenGO organisation reads as follows :-

“Caroline earned the hatred of the transgender lobbies in March of last year when she faced investigation by her local police force after describing the sex-reassignment surgery performed on a 16-year-old boy as ‘castration, mutilation, and child abuse.’

“Caroline was criticizing the decision of Susie Green, the leader of a radical UK transgender lobby group, to have this foolish surgery performed on her son on his sixteenth birthday. Mrs. Green had planned to take her son to Thailand because the surgery was illegal in the UK but, as a result of the publicity, Thai authorities were so shocked that they then banned the procedure for children under 18.

“That was the first time Caroline was dragged into court.

“Even though the police decided to drop the charges against Caroline, another aggressive transgender lobbyist, Stephanie Hayden, decided to target her and directed a campaign of abuse at her across several social media platforms.

“Caroline began to receive a huge volume of aggressive statements across many platforms. Countless blogs were written about her containing violent and sexual threats, which also threatened her family and young children.

“Many of the comments were openly violent, and most were obscene and vulgar.

“But the revenge campaign did not end there.

“Caroline’s family began to receive offline harassment, such as unordered food deliveries coming to her house as many as eight times a day, and online confirmations for goods she hadn’t ordered. Of course, businesses wanted Caroline to pay for it all.

“Then her husband was anonymously reported for "abuse" of their five lovely children. Police and bureaucrats came to the home demanding to interview the young children -- a nightmare for any parent, though it was quickly determined there was no harm being done.

“The activists got hold of her family’s phone numbers and email addresses and caused havoc in their lives, including hints of harm to the children.

Terrified they might carry out their threats, Caroline stood up to her bullies on social media and pleaded with them once again to leave her alone.

“The transgender activist, Stephanie Hayden, then arrived at her house to serve a lawsuit on Caroline for alleged harassment in an attempt to use the legal system to bully her.

“Two days later, after having had little time to find lawyers and prepare a defense, the judge decided to believe Stephanie Hayden, who expressed concern that Caroline had mis-gendered him, which he called offensive. The judge banned Caroline from mentioning this transgender again.

“But lies are part of the enemy’s weapons.

“Stephanie Hayden is suing Caroline for as much as £100,000 and is attempting to set a precedent in case law to make mis-gendering illegal.

“Not content with attempting to financially ruin Caroline’s family, Stephanie Hayden is also attempting to have our Director put in prison, falsely claiming that she has broken the terms of the injunction and is in contempt of court over an innocent joke Caroline made about a pork pie!

“Our brave campaigner, Caroline Farrow, should not suffer this harassment and persecution just because she told the truth.

“But the reality is, she is now facing staggering legal fees just to defend herself from these vicious attacks.”

INTERESTING SCRIPT DIALOGUE IN BBC DRAMA

The current BBC1 serial “The Trial of Christine Keeler” is a most interesting and entertaining drama reminding everyone about the notorious Profumo Scandal of the 1960s, and revealing many hitherto little known aspects about the saga. The serial is however of particular interest for the manner in which it accurately conveyed the commonly held social attitudes towards Negro immigrants at the time. In an early episode a lady passer-by openly shouts out “disgusting” at the whore Christine Keeler when she sees her consorting with a Negro, and characters portraying both a policeman and Keeler’s own mother use forthright terms to express their opposition to the immigrants who they regarded as having invaded their country. Although such attitudes were both natural and widespread at the time, the advent of various pieces of anti-free speech “race relations” legislation by the Wilson Labour Government of the late-1960s meant that people were increasingly cowed into silence rather than being prepared to express their true opinions overtly. Intimidation by the “race relations Gestapo” remained high throughout the 1970s, 80s and the “politically correct” 1990s of course, but increasingly since the turn of the Millennium their dominance seems to be on the wane. This refusal to be intimidated any longer has been clearly shown by escalating vocal opposition to foreign players competing in Soccer matches, fearless criticism of Prince Harry’s unsuitable wife because of her ethnic origins – and of course by this current realistic dialogue in TV dramas.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW ?

No.254 - Mr. JOE VERMAAK of Durban

Joe Vermaak came from an Afrikaner platteland community, but moved to Durban in order to advance his career. He was a highly skilled computer programmer, and worked for Unilever during the late 1970s. He lived at an Afrikaner hostel whilst staying in Durban, and eagerly joined in their many social activities. He was a quiet man, though with a somewhat impish and self-effacing sense of humour, and was also very much of a ladies’ man – though in the best sense of this term! It would be very interesting to learn where he is now.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

VOICE OF THE WHITE WORKER

Sir,

I live in South Africa and am coming to the UK soon.

The company I worked for has literally been forced to close down as the owner is White. So I’m jobless and wasn’t the best time for me. So struggling

I can only thank God that I have a British Passport, but there are millions of White South Africans struggling. Actually scratch that, there are millions of South Africans struggling. The poorest of the poor are eating sand now. A real case study of how corruption and African tribalism can ruin a democracy, with clear cut Africanist stupidity

Groups must be set up to help White South Africans to enter to the UK. Hardest workers you will ever find

Yours etc.,

N.Smith, South Africa.

----------------------------

RECOGNISING THE ENEMY

Sir,

Re. the editorial in the October Edition of the SCN - George Soros is not popular ANYWHERE!

Yours etc.,

Heinrich Koch, Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa.

IDENTITY TEST

Sir,

To anyone unsure of their gender-look below the waist!

Yours etc.,

Mark Taylor, London, U.K.

----------------------------

STORY OF AFRICA

Sir,

The news given in the Transvaal Agricultural Union (S.A.)’s Press Release about the ANC regime’s expropriation without compensation plans is, of course, terrible news. I fear for the lives of Whites in South Africa and, if history in the region is indicative of the future, there will be a blood bath. I pray for the Afrikaners.

Yours etc.,

Stephen Gassaway, Virginia, U.S.A.

PRINCE STARKEY

Sir,

So Prince Harry likes a bit of Black. Nothing wrong with that. But you don’t MARRY them!

ROGUES GALLERY

Ever since our movement was re-established “in exile” we have been subjected to several attacks and dirty-tricks campaigns aimed at disrupting our activities, but in practically all cases these have been proved to have emanated from the extreme “off the edge” Right of the political spectrum – the most damaging example being of course in 2015 when the two-faced infiltrator Paul Griffin was involved. More recently, however, we have suffered from an infiltration and disruption plot which has clearly been from the extreme Left of the political spectrum.

In mid-2018 we were contacted by an apparent would-be supporter who gave his name as Ben van der Merwe and who claimed to be the great-grandson of Frank Waring, the great South African cabinet minister under Dr. Verwoerd and John Vorster. Whether this relationship was true or whether van der Merwe made it up simply in order to ingratiate himself with us we honestly don't know. He turned up at a Springbok Club event shortly after first making contact and seemed a very decent, friendly and supportive person, though he brought along a colleague with him who a couple of people sensed was a homosexual. Van der Merwe subsequently attended a Springbok Club meeting, and again didn't do or say anything which aroused suspicion, nor which indicated that he was other than fully supportive of our aims and objectives. He then attended the "Raising of the Flag" ceremony at Bath in December 2018, and it was here that the first problems from him were experienced. He again turned up with his colleague, but this time his appearance was even more disturbing and indicated even more strikingly that he was a sexual deviant. Just as the ceremony was about to begin, however, van der Merwe and his colleague mysteriously disappeared, and when everyone returned to the house where the ceremony took place it was discovered that one of the historic Rhodesian flags on display had been stolen! Although this flag was later left at a café in the centre of Bath completely undamaged, the whole unfortunate incident understandably upset the hosts considerably, and they have subsequently asked not to be contacted again - so our movement has therefore lost a very good couple of supporters as a result of the antics of the wretched van der Merwe.

At first we put this whole childish episode down to "student sky-larking", but then it was discovered that there was something far more sinister at play here, for we found that van der Merwe was a leading writer for the Oxford University student magazine Cherwell - and furthermore that the articles which he had written were of a very Left-wing and pro-homosexual nature! Following this it was revealed that van der Merwe wrote for the extreme Left-wing and anti-patriotic organisation "Hope not Hate", an outfit which we have in the past been advised to be very wary of - something which we now can see was very good advice! It is quite clear to us now therefore that we were totally "conned" by van der Merwe, and that his sole intention was to infiltrate our movement in order to discover more information about us and then to write smear articles about us to cause more trouble - as indeed he subsequently did with a very nasty article which he wrote for the "Hope not Hate" web-site attacking us following the Springbok Club’s double-celebration meeting in April of last year, and which was then picked-up by both The Guardian and The Eastern Daily Press who published further smear articles criticising both the guest speaker and the Springbok Club as a whole! If the wretched van der Merwe really is the great-grandson of Frank Waring - a prominent member of the National Party governments of South Africa when the system of separate development was fully in force - then his great-grandfather must now be turning in his grave!

We do not seem to be alone in being the victim of van der Merwe’s infiltration and dirty-tricks campaigns however, for we have recently been alerted to a most interesting exposé of him and his true nature which appears on the following web-site :-

December 2019 Edition.

SPRINGBOK CYBER NEWSLETTER

December 2019 edition

The forthcoming British General Election is probably one of the most important in history. This may sound like a cliché, but it is true nevertheless. It is not just that the speedy culmination of the Brexit process is at stake at this election – it is also because the prospect of such a despicable character as Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister is simply too ghastly to be contemplated.

Make no bones about it, Jeremy Corbyn is evil personified. He refers to the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists as “his friends”, he acts as an apologist for SF/IRA terrorism, and he calls for the massive nationalisation of British industry – in other words theft! He quite clearly hates the nation which gave him birth, not only by refusing to respect its National Anthem and by none-too-subtle attacks against the Royal Family, but even more damningly by refusing to support his own country in the Wars against Islamic Terror. One is therefore left wondering why on earth he ever wishes to lead a country which he so obviously hates – unless it is simply in order to try to destroy that country!

To be sure, the only conceivable alternative as Prime Minister, the present Premier and Leader of the Conservative and Unionist Party Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, is not perfect, and we have a particular disagreement with him concerning the ridiculously high number of foreigners who he has appointed to his cabinet (as we criticised in the editorial of the August 2019 Edition of the SCN), but all his faults shade into insignificance when compared to the vile and treacherous nature of Corbyn.

We therefore have no hesitation in advocating full support for the Conservative and Unionist Party at the forthcoming British General Election. There may of course be certain seats in former coal-mining areas which the Conservative and Unionist Party has never won in living memory where support for UKIP or the Brexit Party is the better option, and many may also believe that in constituencies where the Conservative and Unionist Party has unwisely nominated foreign candidates or those who are openly sexual deviants where they cannot be supported, but such constituencies only make up a very small minority, so the general rule should still prevail.

In Northern Ireland, however, the situation is a lot more worrying. Unfortunately the DUP have taken a far too absolutist position on Brexit without seeming to realise that once Brexit has been achieved and Britain is once again an independent nation then all previous agreements with the EU can be altered – and as a result they have apparently lost the support of many more moderate Unionists. The only conceivable alternatives to the DUP are however either the SF/IRA terrorists themselves or their appeasers from the so-called Alliance Party, both of which are just as unacceptable as Corbyn is on the mainland. In spite of our criticism of the DUP’s absolutist stance we must still advocate full support for them in the Northern Ireland context therefore.

With hopefully a decisive victory for Boris Johnson on 12th December a glorious new dawn will then beckon for the British nation and its global diaspora. Once Brexit is completed, with no possibility of a “border down the Irish Sea” in reality, then further important matters should and must be tackled fast. The immigration/repatriation issue must be addressed in full, and the undemocratic bias displayed by both the judiciary and the media eliminated. Following this then a new golden age of British global destiny can once again be contemplated!

------------------------------------------------------------------

SPRINGBOK CLUB NEWS

The Springbok Club held a most enjoyable and enthralling meeting last month which celebrated the 54th anniversary of Rhodesian UDI. The guest speaker at this event was Mr. Neil Farnell who had initiated the famous 1976 Tour of Rhodesia by five (then) young British patriots who wished to show their solidarity with their Rhodesian kith and kin. Mr. Farnell gave a most riveting talk, which he illustrated with pictures and documents from the time, and in which he explained why from an early age, even though he had been born and brought up in a northern industrial town, he had felt strong empathy with the Rhodesian people and their struggle, and had wished to help them. He explained that he was in no way unique in Britain at the time in this respect, and that it had therefore not been difficult to gather together a touring party and to organize the trip. He then went on to give an account of the tour itself, telling how the tour party visited the Rhodesian Parliament where they met the Hon. Ian Douglas Smith, the Rhodesian Front HQ where they met “Boss” Lilford, and were interviewed by Harvey Ward on RTV. He also told a number of amusing anecdotes about their stays at Mrs. Timms’ Guest Houses, their trip in a ferry down Lake Kariba, some near-death experiences which they encountered in Hwange National Park, and their visit to “The Republic of Enkeldoorn”! Most importantly, however, he told of their most inspiring visit to the grave of Cecil John Rhodes at the Matopos, where due homage was paid.

----------------------------

Unfortunately it has not proved possible to stage a full “Raising of the Flag” ceremony this year as hoped, though it is planned to hold a symbolic “Unfurling of the Flag” ceremony in East Kent towards the end of December. We are still determined to stage the “Raising of the Flag” ceremony in its full traditional form during September 2020 however, so if anyone can help us by suggesting a suitable venue with an outside flagpole and both indoors and outdoors facilities then we would be most grateful.

----------------------------

The Springbok Club’s 2020 AGM will be held in central London towards the beginning of January, and full details will be given in next month’s SCN.

MESSAGE FROM THE NETWORK FOR ANIMALS ORGANISATION

We have recently received this following most harrowing message from the Network for Animals organisation, illustrating yet again the appalling conditions which now exist in the “new” South Africa. It reads as follows :-

“As you know, Network for Animals (NFA) works around the world to improve the quality of life for animals living in impoverished communities.

“In South Africa, NFA, with our partner Fallen Angels, rescues hundreds of dogs from lives of misery, hunger, and illness. Our rescue missions are frequently in dangerous gang areas. Often, we can’t take good photographs of the poor creatures because we need to get them to safety before the gangsters find us.

“One day recently, we rescued three dogs and photographed them in a studio – so you can better see the poor souls we help. Denzel, Vanessa and Chopin are classic examples of why.

“Denzel was found starving and badly affected by canine scabies (mange) while attempting to escape nasty children who were throwing stones at him. We rescued him and are paying for his care.

“Vanessa was rescued from an abusive home in a slum area. The owners had crushed her paw, and that of another dog so they couldn’t run away. We confiscated several animals found at the house.

“Chopin was dumped at the side of the road. We rescued him, are paying for his medical care and will help find him a good home.

“The areas where we found the dogs are extremely dangerous – our team has been threatened and shot at while rescuing dogs, but we will NEVER stop saving lives.

“There are now 350 dogs who live at the Fallen Angels shelter in South Africa’s Western Cape and we care for them all. As many as possible are re-homed.

“We really hope you will find it in your heart to make a donation to Network for Animals today, so that we can continue our vital work.

“For the Animals,

“Brian and Gloria Davies (and Max and Flora!) - Founder and CEO.

“P.S. Denzel, Vanessa and Chopin were all rescued on the same day and they are just three of the tens of thousands of dogs who need our help in South Africa. Thanks to friends like you, we were able to save them.”

ISRAEL FOLAU IS VICTORIOUS!

In the April 2019 Edition of the SCN we reported upon the fact that Israel Folau, the Australian Rugby Full-Back and a devout Christian, had had his contract terminated by Rugby Australia simply because he had made a posting on Instagram in which he had condemned eight groups of people who he considered sinners. Of these eight groups it was evidently only one which was objected to by Rugby Australia – homosexuals. Like many other commentators we registered our condemnation of Rugby Australia in this regard as it quite clearly infringed upon Israel Folau’s rights of free speech and religious conscience.

As a result Israel Folau took legal action against Rugby Australia for religious discrimination, and an out-of-court settlement was recently agreed upon involving an undisclosed damages payment and an assurance from Rugby Australia that Israel Folau would be eligible for selection for the national team once again. Together with all other supporters of free speech – be they Christians or not – we of course welcome this outcome, and trust that it will make sporting bodies around the world appreciate the widespread revulsion which exists regarding any pandering towards pro-perversion lobbies.

Following his earlier forthright comments condemning homosexuality Israel Folau has subsequently stated that he believes that the recent bush fires sweeping through eastern Australia were God’s punishment for Australia’s legalising of same-sex “marriages”. Although, to put it mildly, we do not exactly agree with Israel Folau about the cause of these bush fires, his theory is however perhaps a little more likely than some of the wilder claims made for their cause by certain man-made climate-change fanatics!

WHERE ARE THEY NOW ?

No.253 - Mr. DAVID STEAD of Durban

David Stead lived on the Bluff in Durban and had a distinguished career in the South African Air Force. He was a good supporter of the Save Rhodesia Campaign during the late 1970s, and following the formation of the Conservative Party of South Africa he joined the party and stood as their candidate at the Durban Municipal Elections of the early 1980s for one of the wards on the Bluff, though alas he was not victorious. He mysteriously disappeared from the scene shortly after this however, so it would therefore be very interesting to learn whatever happened to him.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

CORRECT MARK

Sir,

So, Faf de Klerk decides to be photographed wearing a pair of ANC-flag underpants after South Africa’s fluke victory in the Rugby World Cup. Given the brown mark which will inevitably be appearing at the back of these underpants, I cannot help thinking that this is a very appropriate comment on everything which this flag represents.

Yours etc.,

A.Davison, Durban, Natal, South Africa.

----------------------------

GOOD OLD SMITHY

Sir,

I suppose Mugabe's living to be ninety-five is indirect proof that the good die young. As a former member of the Anglo-Rhodesian Society, may I suggest that British governments and various liberal progressives were on the wrong side and that Ian Smith deserved an apology? Even with sanctions at their worst, he avoided both famine and hyper-inflation.

Yours etc.,

Mark Taylor, London, U.K.

----------------------------

NEW RULERS, NEW RULES

Sir,

The SAPS and prosecutors are very quick to react against a White person using "hate speech", which now includes the "gratuitous display" of the previous national flag of South Africa (and probably flags of the pre-1902 Boer Republics too). I have such a flag on the rear window of my car bought in 1987. In 1994 I placed the current South African flag alongside it. I wonder if I will be prosecuted if I'm stopped at a police road block and accused of displaying "hate speech" on my car? We are yet to see just ONE Black person being prosecuted for using "hate speech", although multiple examples have been cited and published in the media.

Derogatory terms for Whites, especially White farmers, such as "mabunhu", go unnoticed and unchallenged.

Yours etc.,

Johan Geelvink, Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa

------------------------------------------------------------------

“BUMLER” – 20 YEARS OF “GOOD RIDDANCE”

This month marks the 20th anniversary of the death of one of the biggest ever rogues who was active in Southern Africa during the latter part of the Twentieth Century – Brendan Joseph Willmer, aka “Bumler”.

For those readers who cannot recall the wretched Willmer we suggest that they read the article “The Save Rhodesia Campaign – Why it failed”, which can be accessed at :-

http://www.springbk.org.uk/speech4.html

But the neutering of the Save Rhodesia Campaign was not to be the only damage which Willmer caused to the patriotic movement in Southern Africa. Following the fall of Rhodesia in 1979 and the subsequent disbandment of the Save Rhodesia Campaign, Willmer tried to keep alive the South Africa First Campaign, even though by then the “Info’ Scandal” had been exposed and his funding from the Department of Information had dried up. In January 1980, however, it was discovered that the SRC/SAFC office in Cape Town had closed down and that Willmer had completely disappeared. Even more significant was the fact that all of the financial assets of both campaigns had disappeared with him – including the funds raised for a R100,000 reward to be offered to anyone who could bring the terrorist leader Joshua Nkomo to justice! A further disturbing revelation soon followed when it was revealed that Willmer had extorted over R10,000 (a considerable amount of money in those days) from a Mrs. H.H. Goodhind of Somerset West, and that her family were taking legal action to have it recovered!

It was subsequently discovered that Willmer had moved to Durban where he had taken a job working as a salesman for a controversial company which marketed car windscreen coating. The following year, however, Willmer re-entered politics by announcing that he was re-launching the South Africa First Campaign, though he soon changed the name of the organisation to the Civic Action League in order to concentrate upon local community politics. In so doing he shunned all those who he had previously worked with in Durban through the Save Rhodesia Campaign, and in spite of all his well-publicised financial misdemeanours in Cape Town he managed to obtain the support of many people who should have known better. Ever since the demise of the SRC the patriotic movement in Durban had coalesced and grown in strength around the local branches of the HNP, the White Rhino Club (Mark 1) and the magazine S.A.Patriot, but Willmer’s sinister emergence in the city establishing his own rival structure only served to split the local patriotic movement down the middle.

The most dumbfounding aspect of Willmer’s re-emergence was that the majority of his supporters seemed to be little old ladies of the “religious Right”, yet his own rampant homosexuality had become more and more overt and blatant – hence his nickname of “Bumler”. He would constantly be seen with his effete lover Johannes Blumenthal (who he euphemistically referred to as his “ward”), and if anyone was to say anything witty or profound in his company he would flick his wrist and say “Ooh! Get you ducky!” – surely a dead give-away for a homosexual! This however didn’t stop a certain Pastor Johan Smit falling under his spell. Smit ran a small charismatic church preaching quasi-British-Israelite theology on the Natal south coast, and indeed several of the little old ladies who followed him tended to be of similar British-Israelite persuasion. Such affiliations by Willmer were not altogether surprising however, as even during his SRC days he had peddled some very wacky conspiracy theories, which indeed had meant the loss of support of many campaign members who simply wished to do something active in the Real-World in order to help save Rhodesia, and not to be associated with any crazy conspiracy theories about “international finance” being the cause of all the world’s ills! The terrorist enemies of Rhodesia were after all backed by the communist Soviet block they argued, not by the capitalist West!

At the South African General Election of 1981 Willmer’s message to his gullible supporters was “Trust in Treurnicht, vote Nat’, and everything will be all right”. The HNP had originally planned to field two candidates in the Greater Durban area at this election, Piet van Rensburg in Umlazi and Owen Parvess in Umhlatuzana, but the withdrawal of support by Willmer’s supporters meant that Piet van Rensburg was not able to stand after all. Yes, Willmer had done his job extremely well!

The following year Dr. Andries Treurnicht finally broke away from the NP and founded the right-of-centre Conservative Party of South Africa. It was therefore with complete astonishment that it was announced that Willmer, in spite of all his well-documented financial chicanery of the past, had not only been admitted into membership of the new party, but had even been appointed to the national executive of the party! Inevitably this couldn’t last of course, and following “the case of the missing receipt book” (when it was suspected that he had collected far more funds for the party in Durban than he had revealed) he was dismissed from the party. He then went back to running his Civic Action League outfit, this time not only in rivalry to the HNP/S.A.Patriot, but also to the Conservative Party.

In 1984 a dramatic development occurred however, for it was discovered that Willmer was in South Africa illegally, he never having applied for South African citizenship and his temporary work permit being out of date, and after several appeals and much palaver he was eventually deported back to the UK. This outcome was of course greeted enthusiastically by mainstream patriotic activists in Durban, with much champagne literally being consumed in celebration. This joy certainly did not prove to be misplaced however, for almost immediately supporters of the HNP and the CP started to work together and to liaise increasingly closely. A new umbrella organisation, the Patriotic Forum (Mark 1), was formed to allow the two parties to operate on a common ground in Durban and indeed in Natal as a whole, and a new vibrant campaign, Action White Natal, was founded in order to oppose the KwaZulu/Natal Indaba sell-out proposals, which held a massive rally at the Durban City Hall and attracted nationwide media publicity. Even Arthur Morris, who had taken over control of the Civic Action League following Willmer’s deportation, started to co-operate well and to establish friendly links with the patriotic mainstream - though alas this was not the case with his wife Peggy who was one of Willmer’s little old ladies.

As the NP’s sell-out plans gathered pace during the late 1980s the patriotic movement in Natal grew in strength, probably at a faster rate than in any other part of the country in percentage terms. The Patriotic Forum gained increasing publicity and S.A.Patriot grew rapidly in readership and influence. Then alas disaster struck, for astonishingly the South African authorities granted Willmer citizenship and allowed him to return to the country! He immediately took over control of the Civic Action League again and all co-operation with the HNP and the CP once more ceased. More ominously he attempted to sue Patriotic Press for libel, and although this ridiculous action eventually came to nothing it did of course cost the organisation a tremendous amount in both time and money in order to defend themselves – and this at a most vital time in South Africa’s history when all efforts should have been concentrated upon opposing de Klerk’s treasonable plans. At a time when patriots should have been more united than ever before, opposition forces were thus alas totally divided once again – all due to the machinations of Brendan Joseph Willmer!

Following de Klerk’s notorious “Red Friday” speech of February 1990 those behind Patriotic Press decided that the best action to take was to relocate operations to the UK where they could operate with more freedom and hopefully with more effectiveness “in exile” – but Willmer apparently decided to embrace the new dispensation and remained in the “new” South Africa. Even more incredibly he attempted to stand to become a councillor in the newly multi-racial Durban City Council, but of course given the new dispensation he was predictably soundly defeated.

Brendan Joseph Willmer died from AIDS in December 1999, just a few days short of the Millennium. The world has now therefore been a far better place to live in for the past 20 years!

[ An article entitled “Brendan Joseph Willmer – the Career of a Political Phony” was published in the late-1970s/early-1980s, but alas we haven’t been able to locate a copy. If any reader possesses such an item we would of course be very keen to obtain a copy if possible.]

November 2019 Edition.

SPRINGBOK CYBER NEWSLETTER

November 2019 edition

This publication was of course very supportive of the candidature of Donald J. Trump during the 2016 US Presidential Election contest, and expressed great joy when he was victorious. During the first couple of years of Donald Trump’s Presidency we had nothing but praise for his policies and actions, notwithstanding his apparent willingness to appease the DPRK and certain other third-world tyrannies.

In particular we were highly delighted with the manner in which he pursued his election promise of building a wall along the Mexican border in order to keep out illegal Hispanic immigrants in spite of concerted efforts to frustrate this policy by Democratic Party and other liberal/leftist elements, and also by the fact that he was not afraid to tell certain foreign-descended Donkey Party congresswomen that they should go back where they came from! He has also been one of the few world leaders to at least acknowledge the current quasi-genocide campaign taking place against White farmers and inner-city dwellers in the “new” South Africa – even though he has alas taken no accompanying meaningful actions to remedy this situation.

In April of last year we were further heartened when Donald Trump appointed John Bolton as his National Security Advisor, as he had been greatly admired for his work and influence in the administration of President George W. Bush. This admiration for John Bolton was subsequently further heightened when it came to light that it had been he who had influenced the Trump administration to speak out against the quasi-genocide campaign taking place in the “new” South Africa, and furthermore by the revelations that he was advocating far less conciliatory stances in relations with the DPRK and threatening Middle-Eastern states.

Alas, however, over recent months all this seems to have changed, and the Trump Administration seems to have gone in a completely different direction. Last month he dismissed John Bolton as his National Security Advisor for no apparent reason, and shortly after this an even worse development occurred when he announced that he was withdrawing all US troops from Syria. Notwithstanding the fact that he subsequently sanctioned the elimination of the ISIS/ISIL terrorist leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, this gave all the wrong signals to anti-Western forces not only in the Middle-East, but indeed throughout the third-world. It meant a return to the terrifying bad old days of the Obama administration when non-intervention against threatening terrorist forces was the order of the day, and the resulting international instability meant that swarms of non-White migrants invaded the West.

When he took office Donald J. Trump promised to “Make America Great Again”, but alas this recent decision to withdraw US troops from Syria, and thus to allow ISIS/ISIL and their terrorist allies to flourish once more, has “Made America Puny Again”, not only in the eyes of the third-world minions, but also with his erstwhile friends and allies in the West. Already many leading GOP representatives have spoken out against this retrograde move, most notably Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. It is hoped of course that President Trump will be persuaded to reverse this neo-Obamaite policy of his, but if not it must be hoped that somehow the GOP manages to find an alternative Presidential candidate for 2020 who will be strong and forthright in standing up for the interests of the US and the West in general. There is already such a man waiting in the wings of course: John Bolton.

SPRINGBOK CLUB NEWS

Albeit a few days late, the Springbok Club will be staging a special meeting in order to celebrate the 54th anniversary of UDI Day later this month. The details are as follows :-

Date : Friday 15th November 2019

Time : 19.00 hrs. for 19.30 hrs.[N.B. The function room has only officially been hired from 19.30 hrs onwards, but it is believed that it should be available by 19.00 hrs. Please assemble in the large ground-floor bar if it is not available when you arrive therefore.]

Venue : The Hoop & Toy (the downstairs smaller function room), 34 Thurloe Place, South Kensington, London SW7 2HQ.

(The Hoop & Toy is adjacent to South Kensington underground station on the Circle Line. Upon exiting South Kensington Station turn right into the arcade, then bear slightly to the left into Cromwell Place. This road then bends round to the right and becomes Thurloe Place, with the Hoop & Toy being on the immediate right. Please do not confuse with the near-by Thurloe Street).

Guest Speaker : Mr. Neil Farnell

(Neil Farnell was born and educated at Nelson, Lancashire, though he has lived in Greater London for many years. He has enjoyed a very successful career in advertising, and is also a popular freelance writer and broadcaster, having written many acclaimed articles on global events, political science and national identity. It was he who initiated the famous Rhodesian Tour of 1976 when five [then] young British patriots and members of the Anglo-Rhodesian Society toured Rhodesia in order to express their solidarity with their Rhodesian kith-and-kin. In his talk, which will be illustrated by several items relating to the Rhodesian expedition, he will tell something about the tour, and also why he believes that the Rhodesian struggle should not be forgotten and still has relevance today.)

----------------------------

It is still hoped that the Springbok Club will be able to obtain another suitable venue whereat to stage the annual “Raising of the Flag” ceremony in December. More precise details will of course be given in next month’s SCN if successful.

------------------------------------------------------------------

PATRIOTIC FORUM NEWS

The Patriotic Forum participated in the big pro-Brexit march and rally which took place in Westminster on Thursday 31st October. This of course was the re-scheduled date for the UK’s final leaving of the hated European Union, but alas of course this departure still did not take place on this day – so the march and rally therefore acted as a demonstration of the anger and frustration increasingly being felt by the British people. It did however prove to be a most encouraging and inspiring event, and several new supporters of the Patriotic Forum were obtained as a result.

----------------------------

On Thursday 12th December the Patriotic Forum anticipates holding a special meeting at which the guest speaker will be a famous former Conservative MP. It is realised of course that this will now be General Election day, but alas this is the only date which is convenient for the guest speaker. This meeting will however start somewhat earlier than usual, and it will be ensured that it finishes by 21.00 hrs. Fuller details will of course be given in next month’s SCN..

-------------------------------------------------------------------

THE IMPERIAL PATRIOT

The third edition of the re-branded The Imperial Patriot (formerly S.A.Patriot/S.A.Patriot-in-Exile) is now very close to completion. Further funds are however still required in order to pay for the printing and postage costs. If you can help in any way in this respect the best method of doing so would be to purchase batches of back-copies of the magazine. These are available at £15.00 for a batch of 25, £20.00 for a batch of 50, £35.00 for a batch of 100 and £60.00 for a batch of 200.

MESSAGE FROM THE POLITICAL ANIMAL LOBBY

We have recently received the following most alarming message from the Political Animal Lobby organisation, illustrating yet again the appalling attitude taken towards animals in both China and on the African continent, particularly in the “new” South Africa. It reads as follows :-

“If the insatiable demand in China for donkey skins is not banned, donkeys could be extinct in four years.

”It’s that simple and that frightening. The Chinese use donkey skins to make a phony medicine called Ejiao and they want TEN MILLION SKINS A YEAR to do so. You do the maths: In four years, all the world’s donkeys could be gone. The Political Animal Lobby is trying to stop it and we need your help to do so.

”Right now, the trade is centred in Africa. Like vampires, Chinese traders have fallen on unsophisticated rural people - buying and stealing donkeys on an unprecedented scale, often slaughtering donkeys while they are still alive and then shipping their skins to China.

“The donkey genocide that is taking place is not only a massive tragedy for animals, it has a devastating effect on children. In Africa, people are poor and public transport is rare, so the people use donkeys to fetch water and wood and to take their children to school. If there are no donkeys, then the children can’t get to school and instead are used as child labour, carrying wood and water to remote villages.

”Yet this tragedy is being virtually ignored by many African governments. Kenya has even LEGALISED the trade and set up donkey slaughter-houses, where thousands of donkeys die each month. When donkeys are wiped out in one area, the slaughter-house closes and moves to another. Recently, a smuggling trade has erupted bringing donkeys from Ethiopia to Kenya.

”In South Africa, where lawlessness is common and police are corrupt and inefficient, the donkeys are bought on public auction and led into the bush, where impromptu, illegal slaughter-houses are set up and men, often drunk, hack the donkeys to death, while skinning them in their death agony.

“The only way this can be stopped is if enough people publicly condemn the Chinese donkey skin trade and persuade African governments to ban it. There are two important ways to do this :-.

“Firstly please if you possibly can, make a donation to the Political Animal Lobby today. We will use your donation to pressure governments relentlessly in every way we can, to ban the trade. We know that if we can bring enough pressure to bear, we will win, but we can’t do it without you.

“Secondly, please sign our petition to the South African government today. The trade is particularly vicious there because of the extreme cruelty that is often involved in donkey slaughtering. Because it is so cruel, we will spearhead the African campaign in South Africa.

“You can help save the world’s donkeys by both donating today and signing the petition. We will see it gets to the right people.

“For the Animals,

“Andrea Matthee - Lead Campaigner,Political Animal Lobby

“P.S. As shocking as this situation is, it is also deadly serious. If the Chinese are not stopped, the world’s donkeys could be extinct in just four years. Your donation is desperately needed. but equally important is your signature on our petition. The more names we can collect, the more influence we will have when pressuring the government officials who can BAN this despicable trade. Please, please help us in this fight!”

RUGBY WORLD CUP DISASTER

The outcome of this year’s Rugby World Cup was not only surprising – it was disastrous!

Having been soundly beaten by the All Blacks in their first match of the tournament, and then having had a very easy run of matches up until the semi-final, the subsequent triumph by the “new” South African team can only be described as greatly unexpected. We are not trying to say that there was any skullduggery involved such as that which occurred in 1995, when several members of the All Blacks side suffered food poisoning shortly before the final, simply that because of the fixtures schedule it was a fluke.

Make no bones about it however, the “new” South African team represented the ruling ANC terrorist regime and not the country as a whole. They played under the flag and symbols of the ANC regime (indeed one player even grotesquely wore an ANC flag pair of underpants!) and they stood to attention for the nauseating ANC anthem – and as a result you can bet your bottom dollar that the ANC regime will milk this triumph for all the propaganda value which they can get!

All observers who take a close interest in South African affairs know that the country is now a basket-case and the crime capital of the world. A quasi-genocide campaign is being enacted there against White farmers and pensioners trapped in inner-city areas; corruption is endemic, and all forms of national infrastructure have collapsed. It has been difficult enough for overseas friends of South Africa to alert the powers-that-be to the true appalling conditions which now pertain in that sorry land, but now the inevitable response which they will receive when they try to explain what is actually happening there is “How can the situation in South Africa be as bad as you paint it when the country has been able to win the Rugby World Cup?”. All those who played for the “new” South Africa team (whether or not they wore ANC flag underpants!) and all those who supported the team should therefore be ashamed of themselves. It was like spitting on the graves of all those innocents who have been killed under ANC rule.

LATEST AUSTRALIAN NEWS

The Tasmania Branch of the Australian National Flag Association staged a splendid luncheon at the Parliament House in Hobart during September in order to celebrate the 118th anniversary of the Australian Flag being officially adopted. The guest speaker at this dazzling event was Senator Jonathon Duniam, the Assistant Minister for Forestry, Fisheries and Regional Tourism. The increasing growth and activism of organisations such as the Australian National Flag Association demonstrates clearly that patriotic sentiments and pride in their British heritage is firmly on the ascendancy in Australia.

HNP DEFIANTLY MAINTAINS STRUGGLE

Although the age of meaningful White politics in South Africa is long since over, the HNP, which valiantly opposed the steady sell-out and surrender of South Africa by successive NP governments throughout the 1970s and 80s, has still maintained a functioning structure. In spite of the popular conception that the HNP was anti-English because of its “Afrikaans first” policy when it came to official languages, it was our experience when we were still based in South Africa that the party fully supported White unity, and indeed we received nothing but friendship from them during the early and mid-1980s. In a recent Media Release which the party issued blasting the ANC regime’s attempts to ban the real South African flag – “die Oranje, Blanje en Blou” – they gave their full backing to the continuing use of the real flag, a flag beloved to both Afrikaners and British-South Africans alike. We salute the HNP in this brave and noble stance, and wish them every success in their continuing struggle under such extremely difficult circumstances. The HNP web-site can be accessed at :-

LATEST SWEDISH NEWS

An article in The Daily Telegraph of 4th November states that the Sweden Democrats party is “within a hair’s breadth” of becoming the biggest political force in Sweden. Our very good friend and supporter from Sweden, Lars Karnestam, who sadly died earlier this year (see obituary in the September 2019 SCN) was of course a founding member of the Sweden Democrats and remained a keen supporter of the party until his untimely death. Lars told us a few years back, however, that he was very keen to forge links with another patriotic centre-right party in Sweden, the Christian Democrats, and it was thus of extra interest to read in the Daily Telegraph article that “a working lunch” had taken place between the leaders of the Sweden Democrats and leaders of the Christian Democrats. It seems therefore that all of Lars’s great efforts over the years are now bearing spectacular fruits, and it is just a tragedy that he isn’t still alive to witness them.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW ?

No.252 - Ms. P.K. WALTERS of Durban

Ms. P.K. Walters came into contact with Patriotic Press and the original Patriotic Forum when we were still based in Durban during the late 1980. Only knowing her initials through correspondence we presumed that she was male – until she came along to one of our meetings and we realised our mistake! She was a relatively young woman and seemed very keen, but alas before we could really get to know her we were forced to leave South Africa. She lived in the Greyville area of Durban, and it would certainly be good to make contact with her again.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

BY GEORGE!

Sir,

Your obituary to George Hazelden in your August 2011 Edition was admirable, but I fear that the praise which you gave him was very misplaced. As you accurately stated, Hazelden had earlier been a stalwart of the National Front in Great Britain, a party which at the time (before the neo-fascists took over) was best known for its pro-British and pro-White-solidarity policies – firmly opposing non-White immigration and advocating friendlier ties with our kith-and-kin in Southern Africa. Hazelden furthermore stated that his intention in emigrating to South Africa was in order to do his bit to support the South African struggle to preserve civilised rule and the system of separate development which was then operating – as indeed was the intention of many other National Front activists who similarly emigrated to South Africa at the same time.

I have however recently come across an article about Hazelden entitled “Back to the Wall” which appeared in the Sunday Telegraph Magazine of 4th July 1999, which concerned his scheme to create a “walled city” just outside Somerset West called Heritage Park. In this article Hazelden is quoted as saying about his desired residents of Heritage Park: “The only colour we care about is the colour of people’s money”, and furthermore refers to an ANC terrorist leader as “a wonderful guy”. He also evidently subsequently invited an ANC official to open the first phase of Heritage Park and was grovellingly obsequious towards him!

Quite obviously therefore Hazelden was either a phony when he was active in the National Front during the 1970s (and don’t forget that he wasn’t just an ordinary member, he was Branch Chairman of one of the most dynamic branches in the country and stood as NF Parliamentary candidate for Rochester and Chatham at the October 1974 General Election), or else he became a complete turncoat. In either case he proved to be a complete traitor to the cause which he claimed to espouse. His name should therefore be remembered – if it should be remembered at all – with complete odium.

Yours etc.,

H.K.H., Gillingham, Kent, U.K.

[ Following the featuring of George Hazelden’s first wife Jane in the “Where are they now?” section of the December 2017 SCN we received information about her own e-mail address and that of her son Mark. We e-mailed them both as a result, but alas never received the decency of a reply from either of them. – Ed.]

----------------------------

END OF THE BEGINNING

Sir,

I entirely agree with your last sentence: “We must all work together to ensure that Brexit takes place in its entirety - then immediately to focus on the next stage of the struggle - the immigration/repatriation battle!”. My sentiments exactly!

Yours etc.,

Richard Highthwaite, Nottinghamshire, U.K.

ROOI BOERE

Sir,

There have also been marches in Australia in support of South Africa. I notice Russia has taken 12,000 South African farmers.

PENSION PLAN

Sir,

The government of Southern Rhodesia donated the assets of the Public Service Pensions Fund to the UK government at the end of WWII to assist their recovery. In doing so, government undertook to pay pensioners from public funds. Zimbabwe government public service pensioners are now paid as and when it suits the government. The last payment to some Zimbabwe government public service pensioners in South Africa was made in November 2017 (after Mnangagwa replaced Mugabe as President). The next payment was only made in August 2019, when forex was allocated by the Reserve Bank.

Yours etc.,

Johan Geelvink, Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa

THE SPEAKING TOUR OF SOUTH AFRICA BY AN ANTI-COMMUNIST RUSSIAN

Around 1989/90, when we were still based in South Africa, we were contacted by a lady who we’d had no contact with previously who was orchestrating a speaking tour of South Africa by an Anti-Communist Russian, who asked if we could organise for the Durban leg of this tour. The lady in question sent us an audio-recording of a talk given by this Russian and we were highly impressed (particularly by his opening remark when he greeted everyone with the phrase “My fellow Capitalists!”), and so we readily agreed to help, booking a venue in Durban for him to speak at accordingly.

Unfortunately, of course, this was the time of de Klerk’s final sell-out of South Africa, and we were suffering badly accordingly – both financially and personally. As a result when the date of the scheduled Durban leg of this speaking tour came we were in absolutely no position to be able to assist as we had originally hoped and promised. We did however see by adverts in the Natal press that the Durban leg was definitely still taking place.

Needless to say, the fact that we had to let this lady down so upset us badly and made us feel extremely guilty. Following our enforced re-location to the UK shortly thereafter we alas could find no trace of the name or the contact details of this lady – nor even the name of the Russian speaker. Once we were able to re-establish ourselves fully a couple of years later we tried to discover her name and address through colleagues still living in South Africa so that we could write to her to apologise, but alas to no avail.

A short while ago we were reminded about this speaking tour however, so we thought that we would therefore ask readers of the SCN if anyone knew who this lady was and how she could now be contacted. In spite of all the years which have elapsed we would still very much like to write to her to explain all the problems which had befallen us which meant that we had to let her down so badly. If anyone can help in this regard so that we can get this embarrassing memory off our conscience then we would be most grateful.

October 2019 Edition.

SPRINGBOK CYBER NEWSLETTER

October 2019 edition

The British people voted decisively to leave the European Union on 23rd June 2016. It was not a narrow result as pro-EU sycophants try to claim, but was by a massive margin of over one and a quarter million! A victory margin of over one and a quarter million is not narrow!

Those who supported the Vote Leave campaign then expected Britain’s withdrawal from the EU to be quick and easy. It turned out, however, that there had to be a formal application by the UK Government to trigger Article 50 (which is the official mechanism for any nation to leave the EU), but for some unfathomable reason the then British Government of Theresa May took over nine months to apply for Article 50, only doing so on 29th March 2017. As there then had to be a statuary further two year delay in order to negotiate terms for withdrawal this meant that Britain was only due to leave the EU on 29th March 2019, i.e. almost three years after the original decision by the British people to leave had been made. In view of all the bureaucratic rigmarole involved this was acceptable – just. Unfortunately, however, the saga didn’t end there. The final exit date was postponed to 12th April 2019, and then to 31st October 2019 – and at the time of writing even this latest planned date doesn’t seem to be totally certain.

So what therefore has been the reason for this delay after delay? We are not conspiracy theorists, and dismiss all of the wacko conspiracy theories which alas abound in the crankier fringes of society with the contempt which they deserve – but we are not talking about a conspiracy theory here. We are talking about a conspiracy fact.

In February 2018 a report appeared in the Daily Telegraph stating that George Soros, the notorious American-based Hungarian financier who had made a multi-billion dollar fortune by currency-speculating on, inter alia, the fall in the value of the pound at the time of the “Black Wednesday” exit from the Exchange Rate Mechanism, was financing and orchestrating a campaign to prevent Brexit happening. He openly stated that he had contributed £400,000 to this campaign to thwart the democratic will of the British people, but the actual amount which he has ploughed into this campaign is believed to be far, far higher.

To call George Soros controversial would be an understatement. He is detested in his native Hungary to such an extent that the governing party in that country used his spectre to demonise the opposition, and then won a massive general election victory as a result. He is also greatly reviled in the United States – and not only by fruitcake conspiracy theorists, but more importantly in mainstream GOP circles.

Events which have happened since Soros’s announcement that he would be bankrolling an anti-Brexit campaign have been sinister in the extreme. Firstly a previously unknown foreign “businesswoman” named Gina Miller mysteriously had the wherewithal to mount a legal challenge to the government’s Brexit preparations in the courts, then massive pro-remain demonstrations occurred in London featuring masses of EU citizens, many of whom had been specially flown in from the continent for the occasion; this was then followed by the defections of several MPs who had been elected as Conservatives under the party’s 2017 Manifesto which promised to enact Brexit, who thereby robbed the Government of its Parliamentary majority, and then finally the unelected High Court took the unprecedented step of making a political decision and thereby over-ruling Government policy.

The hand of George Soros’s wealthy anti-Brexit campaign can of course be seen behind all of these recent most worrying developments. Happily, however, in spite of all the efforts and financial resources of this campaign, they do not appear to have triumphed, for at the time of writing the final enactment of Brexit seems to be unstoppable. When that joyful day arrives and the UK once again obtains complete independence and control over all the laws of the land two important steps must be taken as a matter of urgency. Firstly legislation must be passed to prevent foreigners such as Soros and his puppet Miller from interfering in internal British domestic affairs, and secondly, if the judiciary insists upon taking political decisions, then they must be elected rather than appointed.

SPRINGBOK CLUB NEWS

The Springbok Club staged a most enjoyable, and indeed inspiring, trip to the annual “Salute to the Forties” festival at Chatham Dockyard last month. This event, which featured musical acts and other attractions with a 1940s theme, proved to be extremely well attended, with many of those in attendance coming dressed in period costume from this most patriotic and optimistic era in Britain’s recent history (and indeed that of all of the Commonwealth Dominions – including of course South Africa and Rhodesia at the time), even though most were of course far too young to have been alive at the time. It was also particularly encouraging to note that practically everyone in attendance seemed to be British, even though the Medway Towns apparently has quite a high immigrant population nowadays. The Springbok Club party managed to make some good and friendly contacts with several of the performing artists, and also remembered their sadly recently deceased member from Sweden, Lars Karnestam, by saying a few words in his honour and toasting his memory.

----------------------------

The Springbok Club will be holding its annual UDI Day commemoration meeting in mid-November, at which the guest speaker will be a member of the famous 1976 Rhodesia Tour party. More precise details about this event will be given in next month’s edition of the SCN.

Plans are still afoot to obtain another suitable venue whereat to stage the annual “Raising of the Flag” ceremony later this year, and fuller details will of course be given in future editions of the SCN.

------------------------------------------------------------------

PATRIOTIC FORUM NEWS

The Patriotic Forum held a highly successful trip to Greenwich last month as a belated celebration of Canada Day. The Patriotic Forum party visited several sites in the area associated with General James Wolfe, including St.Alfege’s Church where he is buried, Churchfields and Macartney House where he lived during his youth, and the statue to him which overlooks Greenwich Park. The day culminated at a near-by hostelry where a leading member of the organisation gave a report-back about his recent trip to Newfoundland, detailing the historic places which he visited and emphasizing the friendliness and continuing very British nature of this distinct province of Canada.

----------------------------

The Patriotic Forum will be holding a special meeting in honour of the memory of the late, great Dennis Delderfield at the end of October, which it is hoped will be take place on Thursday 31st October so that all those in attendance can then go on to join the celebrations in Parliament Square to mark Britain’s anticipated final departure from the European Union – a cause which Dennis Delderfield devoted so much of the final years of his life in trying to achieve.

In December the Patriotic Forum anticipates holding a special meeting at which the guest speaker will be a famous former Conservative MP.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

THE IMPERIAL PATRIOT

Work is now well under way towards the production of the third edition of the re-branded The Imperial Patriot (formerly S.A.Patriot/S.A.Patriot-in-Exile, which will be numbered No.40 for continuity purposes), and it is anticipated that this will be published before the end of the year. Back-copies of the magazine are available price £1.00 each, or £20.00 for a batch of 50 for re-distribution to friends and colleagues. Cheques should be made payable to “Patriotic Press” and sent to: Patriotic Press, BM SAPAT, London WC1N 3XX, U.K. (Bank account details if you’d prefer to pay by direct bank transfer are available upon request).

-------------------------------------------------------------------

MESSAGE FROM THE NETWORK FOR ANIMALS ORGANISATION

We have recently received this following further most harrowing message from the Network for Animals organisation, illustrating yet again the appalling conditions which pertain in the “new” South Africa. It reads as follows :-

“Three times we planned to visit Hillview in South Africa to rescue street dogs. Three times our security company refused to let us go because of the danger from gangsters. On our fourth attempt we made it. Nothing can stop our mission to save animals.

“In 20 nervous minutes, we filled a rescue truck with dogs desperately in need of medical care. We had to leave so many behind.

“Hillview is a squalid settlement of shacks in one of the poorest areas of Cape Town. Until now, dogs have had absolutely no help there, because gangsters use its narrow alleys to hide from police and view any outsider as a threat to be dealt with.

“This was our first visit and with the help of our partner TEARS, we have started to make a difference to the lives of the hundreds of dogs who scavenge for a living there. Everywhere we looked, we saw injured and sick dogs; truthfully, we didn’t see a single healthy animal.

“We rescued a dog who had been run over by a car. We rescued dogs infested with ticks, dogs with mange and hungry, sick dogs. All iin just 20 minutes.

“It was pouring with rain that morning and the dogs were sodden lumps of misery. We hated to leave a single one behind, but we and TEARS have limited budgets, that’s why we earnestly implore you to donate generously to Network for Animals today, so we can extend our work in this terribly poor place, where the need is so great.

“To make things even worse for the animals, (if that is really possible) a devastating fire has swept through the area destroying many shacks. The local council is helping rebuild the dwellings, but we are the only hope for the dogs. All the dogs we rescued are now at the TEARS shelter, a place run by caring volunteers who provide them with food, medicines and love. Hopefully, all these dogs will be adopted and find forever loving homes.

“Network for Animals has been working in South Africa’s shanty towns for several years, doing all we can to help suffering creatures. Our team is tough, but we were shocked by what we saw in Hillview and we simply have to do more for the animals. We need your help. The poor dogs need your help. Please help us by donating generously today.

“For the Animals,

“Brian and Gloria Davies (and Max and Flora!), founders and CEOs

“P.S. The government says it will take many years to solve Hillview’s problems, but the dogs can’t wait – we must help them today! Please give generously if you possibly can.”

THE 2019 WORLD ATHLETICS CHAMPIONSHIP

Perhaps in this year more than ever the preponderance of sporting mercenaries taking part in the World Athletics Championship was obvious for all to see. It was no longer only Western European nations with strong colonial histories which have “poached” Black athletes from African countries, but also practically all Western and Central European countries, Arab states from the Gulf, the United States and Canada – and even Japan! It cannot be argued that Negroes do not have a physiological advantage over Whites and Asians when it comes to basic physical abilities such as running, so therefore it is not a “level playing field” to allow Blacks and Whites to compete against each other. We have argued for decades of course that there should be separate sporting competitions for all the different racial groups – as was the case in South Africa up until the 1980s. As “political correctness” declines in influence so we hope that in the not too distant future there will be at least three separate World Athletic Championships for the basic differing racial groups, so that like can compete against like.

As it was, however, it was interesting to note that the “new” South Africa obtained precisely – eh – zero medals this year, thus showing that under the present ANC regime Black sporting success has now sunk to the low levels which White sporting success declined to several years ago. Perhaps the “new” South Africa should therefore start to think about entering a man in a woman’s event in order to obtain some form of success!

------------------------------------------------------------------

EXCELLENT NEW VIDEO FROM LAUREN SOUTHERN

Most readers will hopefully remember the name of Lauren Southern, the Canadian Internet-journalist who has produced some highly praised YouTube videos highlighting the quasi-genocide campaign currently being enacted against the remaining White population still living in the “new” South Africa, and which we featured in the May and June 2018 and the April 2019 editions of the SCN. We’ve now been informed of a further excellent YouTube video featuring Lauren Southern in which she turns her attention to the threat posed to the whole of the European continent by unchecked mass immigration from the third world. This eye-opening YouTube video, entitled “Borderless”, can be viewed at :-

SACRILEGE AT THE LAST NIGHT OF THE PROMS

The annual “Last Night of the Proms” concert has for long been a rarity among BBC Arts broadcasts (indeed a rarity within Arts circles in general) as its ethos has traditionally been one of pure patriotism. The liberal “arty” establishment has of course for long hated the “Last Night of the Proms” because of its overt patriotism, and following some most praise-worthy displays of EuroScepticism in the “Last Night” audience during the early 1990s, orchestrated by activists from the Campaign for an Independent Britain and New Britain etc., the liberal-left hierarchy within the BBC Arts Department evidently decided to act, and from then onwards ensured that EU flags and those of its various component countries were equally visible on display. This situation continued for the next couple of decades, with a string of EU national flags being strung across the front of the audience being a notorious “red rag to the bull” as far as most patriotic music-lovers were concerned. With the Brexit triumph of 2016 and the extreme set-back which the egalitarian arts establishment thereby suffered, they then evidently looked for an even more objectionable form of sacrilege to enact at the “Last Night” in order to anger patriotic attendees and viewers – and sure enough this year they managed to do just this, for the openly “queer” [her own word] American soprano who they engaged to sing Rule Britannia finished her rendition by sickeningly producing a rainbow flag of the queer movement and then waved it around!

But this was not the end of this year’s “Last Night” manifestations. As reported above, the Springbok Club staged a trip to the “Salute to the Forties” festival at Chatham Dockyard last month, and at the close the days festivities the performers gave their own “Last Night of the Proms” rendition – a hearty singalong of Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory by the assembled artists and audience alike! At this finale there was only one flag seen being waved – the Union Flag! No EU flags, and certainly no hideous queer flag! This of course was the true spirit of the British people asserting itself, and this is the spirit which in post-Brexit Britain will become more and more triumphant, no matter what the egalitarian arts establishment try to do to stop it!

WHERE ARE THEY NOW ?

No.251 - Ms. PETER McGOWAN-VAN HEERDEN of Kempton Park

Peter McGowan-van Heerden was a patriotic activist in South Africa during the 1970s, being a early member of the Save Rhodesia Campaign. He was well-known for his spidery hand-writing, which alas often meant that addresses could not be interpreted and his letters were therefore not delivered! As he had British as well as Afrikaner ancestry he became particularly interested in British patriotic politics, and during the early 1970s joined the British National Front (then still an authentic mainstream party). He also however became a good friend of Harold Soref (the Monday Club and very pro-South African Conservative MP) who he met and liaised with during his many trips to South Africa, and followed his advice by leaving the National Front (which by then had been taken over by a clique of neo-fascists) and joining the British Conservative Party instead. Although based in the Transvaal, Peter visited the Save Rhodesia Campaign office in Durban whilst holidaying in the city in 1978, but alas, in spite of clearly being a relatively young man, it became obvious that he was very unwell, and the speculation was that he was suffering from cancer. Sadly very little more was ever heard from Peter McGowan-van Heerden, and it was feared therefore that he must have died shortly thereafter. It would however be very interesting to learn what did actually happen to him, and whether any of his family still survive.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

GLOBAL RECOGNITION

Sir,

Just letting you know the latest edition of The Imperial Patriot has arrived and what (once again) an edition it is. Thank you for sending it to you. I have been following the situation with Tommy Robinson. It is clear the decision made against him had been planned behind doors, long before his trial. Who are the guilty ones?

As a matter of interest regarding Hong Kong, I had a young chap staying with me with his wife overnight, both Chinese and from Hong Kong. He told me that the older people of the city wish the British never left. I also asked him what do you think of the future of Hong Kong. He answered that he was not confident. An interesting comment and revealing. Wonderful SCN again

MARRIAGE PROBLEM

Sir,

I’ve just read the very interesting article “Whatever happened to the three Addington trainee nurses” which appeared in the July Edition of your SCN.

I’ve done some checking, and can’t find any record of “Nutty” ever marrying Jenny – let alone divorcing her. I’ve also heard rumour that he once got into trouble for trying to import some hard-core pornography. If this is true then one wonders what his true motivation was in training to become a gynaecologist!

YESTERDAY’S MEN

Sir,

I was interested in the comments on Sir Geoffrey Howe (July SCN – Ed.), as well as Chris Patten! It was Sir Geoffrey Howe who first started "stabbing" Margaret Thatcher "in the back", in a speech in Parliament! As the Shadow Chancellor during the 1970’s, when replying to the 10 minutes slot budget speech of the Labour Chancellor, Dennis Healey, who lectured us by saying, "We need some more national pride", Sir Geoffrey Howe stated, apologetically, that "Of course, we need some more national pride"!

After Dennis Healey went to the IMF for a loan, I heard a very good "nationalistic" response from the so-called "Left wing" Labour Party Cabinet Minister, Tony Benn, at a private Labour Party meeting in Barton Hill in Bristol! "I don't like us having to crawl on our hands and knees to the IMF for a loan. We still have the capacity to defend ourselves"! He stated further, "That's a gut reaction"! I clapped and cheered him from the back! He had a "sheepish" look on his face when we saw each other later, like a "naughty boy" found out!

On a previous occasion, after another meeting, when I wasn't feeling cross with him, like a previous occasion when I gave him a "piece of my mind", I asked him: "How would you react if someone came to you and said that you are a misguided British nationalist who needs to be re-educated and liberated from this oppressive class consciousness"! He looked very upset and replied "We can talk about it next time"! Well, we didn't need to, did we?!!!

ULSTER-SOUTH AFRICAN LINKS

In an episode of the BBC4 series “Spotlight on the Troubles: A Secret History” broadcast on Tuesday 8th October, mention was made of the fact that various Ulster Loyalist paramilitary groups received weapons and ammunition from South African sources during the 1980s in order to defend their communities against Sinn Fein/IRA terrorism. Something which was not mentioned, however, was that the South African “sources” were of an official nature, and that in return Ulster Loyalists were able to supply the South African government of the day with valuable anti-terrorist equipment and knowhow obtained from sympathetic elements in the British security forces.

Such links between South African and Ulster patriots were not surprising of course, for not only were there strong ethnic and religious connections between the two communities, but also because the South African nation at the time faced similar terrorist threats from SF/IRA’s close allies and brother-terrorists, the ANC. As the programme pointed out, however, the arms supplied to the various Loyalist paramilitaries enabled them to defeat the SF/IRA terrorists militarily, and although Ulster’s struggle has still not been completely won, the province still remains an integral part of the United Kingdom as the clear majority of its citizens wish.

There were of course many Ulster Loyalists who visited and indeed emigrated to South Africa and Rhodesia during the 1970s and 1980s in order not only to assist with mutually beneficial liaison and co-operation, but also to fight voluntarily on the frontline in the struggle of their Southern African kith-and-kin for national freedom (and we do not include the rogue John Hiddleston in this category!). For obvious reasons we will not mention the names of any of these true patriots who are still alive, but one leading figure who we had the honour and privilege of knowing personally during his short stay in South Africa was Robin “The Jackal” Jackson, who sadly died in 1998 (see S.A.Patriot-in-Exile No.35). Robin Jackson was a true hero of the Ulster cause, who was not afraid to put his life on the line in order to safeguard his country and his people. His stay in South Africa, which also included a trip to South-West Africa, during the early 1980s was relatively short and it is not certain what his precise role was, but it is believed that he offered vital counter-terrorist expertise and personal advice to his Southern African counterparts.

We therefore salute the memory of the brave and dedicated Robin Jackson, and also to all those other courageous Ulstermen who made selfless sacrifices in order to show their solidarity with their Southern African kith-and-kin. It is just a tragedy that those South Africans who they sought to defend and support weren’t prepared to display the same degree of courage and resolve to resist the evils of international terrorism and thus to save their country.
