March 2004 Edition.


March 2004 edition

Mbeki is very fond of talking about an "African Renaissance", a so-called "return" to a mythical era of Black-ruled progress in Africa. But what is the truth of the matter?

The world's oldest Black-ruled state is Haiti, which "celebrated" it's 200th anniversary of independence from France this year. Haiti, however, is by far the poorest and most backward nation in the Western Hemisphere, and throughout its 200 year history has constantly "progressed" from one bloody revolution followed by a tyrannical dictatorship, to another equally savage coup followed by an equally despotic ruler. Haiti's latest president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, was hailed as an exception just a few years ago when he obtained power with popular support, but in reality he proved just as corrupt, incompetent and power-hungry as all his predecessors, so that his recent overthrow became inevitable. Significantly, however, one of the few overseas leaders to visit Haiti in order to give Aristide support at the time of his anniversary celebrations was South Africa's Mbeki!

The original blame for Haiti's sorry state of affairs rests squarely with Napoleonic France, for although Napoleon Bonaparte was eager to invade practically every neighbouring White European state, he was not prepared to send troops to defend an existing and rightful part of the French Empire. How far much better the world would be today if the situation had been reversed! Present-day France has however been prepared to send troops to help restore order in this traditional sphere of French influence (which comes as a welcomed change after France's refusal to support the necessary Western intervention in Iraq), albeit in conjunction with Canada and the United States. The American assistance in this regard is particularly pleasing however, and confirms that under Pres. George W. Bush the United States is definitely prepared to "take up the White Man's burden".

Meanwhile the despot and former Catholic priest Aristide has fled, and is rumoured to be seeking sanctuary with Mbeki in South Africa. This would seem to be a logical move as the two tyrants are like peas in a pod. They deserve each other.



The Springbok Club was most privileged to be able to welcome Mr. Frank Maloney, the famous boxing manager, as their guest speaker in February. As well as being the manager of such well-known boxing champions as Lennox Lewis, Paul Ingle and Scott Harrison, Mr. Maloney is also the official UKIP candidate in the forthcoming London Mayoral Election. In a powerful speech and a lively question-and-answer session Mr. Maloney clearly outlined his visionary plans for London if he was to be elected Mayor, which seemed to meet with the full approval of those in attendance. Before the meeting begun, however, a brief moment's silence was observed for Mr. Maurice Owen, the well-known Durban-based boxing promoter, who was also a strong supporter of the Springbok Club and a friend of Mr. Maloney, who sadly died at the end of last year.



The Springbok Club will be staging a short-notice meeting at the end of March when the guest speaker will be Dr. Philip du Toit, the author of the acclaimed book "The Great South African Land Scandal". The details are as follows:-

Date : Wednesday 24th March 2004

Time : 19.00 hrs for 19.30 hrs.

Venue : The Clarence (the upstairs Function Room), 4 Dover Street, Mayfair, London W1 (just off Piccadilly, practically opposite the Ritz Hotel - nearest tube station: Green Park).

Dr. Philip du Toit is an attorney who practises in Pretoria. He completed his doctorate in Labour Law (with emphasis on the agricultural sector) at the Pacific Western University in California, and now lectures on industrial and commercial law at the University of South Africa (UNISA) in Pretoria. He shot to prominence when his book "The Great South African Land Scandal", which chronicles the Zimbabwe-style farm seizures and intimidation campaign in South Africa, was published earlier this year. This book greatly angered the ANC-regime, and various attempts have been made to suppress it. Dr. du Toit will be talking about the crisis currently facing South African farmers, and the facts concerning the publication of his book.



The Inaugural meeting of the Northern Ireland Branch of the Springbok Club (which will also act as an initial AGM) has now been finalised, and details are as follows:-

Date : Saturday 27th March 2004

Time : Assemble at 12 noon (when light refreshments will be available). The meeting itself will commence at 13.00 hrs.

Venue : The Burnside Orange Hall, Burnside Road, Burnside, Co.Antrim (exit the M2 at Junction 6, turn left onto Loughanmore Road then second right onto Burnside Road).

This Inaugural meeting is being organised by founding N.I. Branch Chairman/Secretary Nigel Owens, who can be contacted on: 079808-56105. An exciting itinerary of items has been drawn up for discussion at this meeting, and it is hoped that as many members and supporters of the Springbok Club from Northern Ireland (and from anywhere else who can make the journey) as possible will be able to attend this important event.


In view of the short-notice meeting arranged for March 24th, and the fact that the anticipated visit of Springbok Club US joint co-ordinator Ferdi Fourie to the UK still hasn't been confirmed, it has been decided to postpone the date of the informal pub-gathering of the Chilterns Branch of the Springbok Club until Saturday 11th April. This will be held at "The Bell", Frogmoor, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, and if Ferdi Fourie is in the UK at the time he will be present to meet everyone at this event.

The river trip along the Thames at Richmond by the London (Capital) Branch of the Springbok Club has now been finalised for early May. Full details will be given in the April edition of the SCN.



On Wednesday 21st April the Springbok Club will be one of several patriotic organisations giving active support to a meeting to be addressed by Mr. Philip Benwell MBE of the Australian Constitutional Monarchy League at the House of Lords, commencing at 19.00 hrs. Because of heightened security arrangements it is alas now necessary to know the names of all those wishing to attend this event in advance. If you are interested in attending then please let us know your details as soon as possible by e-mailing:



The London Swinton Circle held a very interesting meeting last month, when the guest speaker was Mr. Nigel Farage, the UKIP MEP for South-East England. In a most informative address Mr. Farage recounted the disasters which EU membership had been to the UK, and also outlined details of UKIP's plans for complete withdrawal.

Details of the next London Swinton Circle meeting are as follows:-

Date : Wednesday 31st March 2004

Time : 18.45 hrs for 19.00 hrs

Venue : The Clarence (the upstairs Parliament Room), 53 Whitehall, Westminster, London SW1 (nearest tube stations: Charing Cross and Embankment.)

Guest Speaker : Mr. David Midgley, the founder of "The Campaign against Political Correctness".



Senior officials of the Springbok Club and the London Swinton Circle were most honoured to be invited to attend a Thanksgiving Service and subsequent reception to mark the 300th Anniversary of Gibraltar becoming British. The Thanksgiving Service was held at St.Clement Danes Church in the Strand and was attended, inter alia, by HRH the Duke of Kent (representing HM The Queen), Baroness Thatcher and the Rt. Hon. Iain Duncan Smith MP. Lessons were read by Mr. Albert Poggio MBE (official UK Representative of the Government of Gibraltar), Baroness Symons (Minister of State at the FCO) and the Rt. Hon. Michael Howard MP (Leader of the Opposition). In a most inspiring address the Hon. Peter Caruana QC (the Chief Minister of Gibraltar) stated that Gibraltar wanted nothing but friendship with her neighbour Spain, but that this friendship must be reciprocated. At the reception held at the Savoy Hotel afterwards speeches were made by the Mayor of Westminster and by Peter Caruana, who emphasised how Gibraltar was proud to be part of the Great British Family, and would remain so for at least another 300 years. Good contacts were also made at this reception with a number of old and new friends, including Sir Bob Peliza (former Chief Minister of Gibraltar), Maurice Xiberras (former Deputy Chief Minister of Gibraltar), and Nathan Payas and Andrea Martin, the soloists who sang so beautiful at the Service.



Mr. Jack Loggenberg, a leading official of the Transvaal Agricultural Union (TLU/TAU), met with three leading members of the Springbok Club during a recent visit to London. This proved to be a most fruitful meeting, and close contacts were established between the two organisations as a result. It was also agreed that Mr. Loggenberg would speak at a Springbok Club meeting during his next visit to London later this year.

"GOODBYE OZ CULTURE" by Nick Maine is a well illustrated and easy to read expose of what certain politicians have done to the Australia we loved as a homogeneous and peaceful society. Several suburbs have now lost all semblance of being "Australian", whilst meanwhile the families of servicemen have been threatened by strangers in our midst.

"HEY! WAIT FOR ME" by Nick Maine is a humorous story which relates how fate kept avoiding a 17-year-old in his endeavours to join his school-mates during the Second World War. Eventually in early 1944, after having served one year in New Guinea and about to be repatriated home, one of his many applications for a transfer finally came through just as the 2/2nd battalion was arriving back in New Guinea. This resulted in the now 21-year-old remaining in action for the final year of the war.

Nick Maine was born in Newcastle NSW Australia in July 1922. During his third year his parents moved to Armidale NSW where he made many friends during his school years prior to enlisting in Brisbane. Nick served for six years during the war years and this story relates to his trials and tribulations in his attempts to get to the front to be with his school-mates which involved age misrepresentations, forged parents' signatures, three enlistments and two desertions and stowing away 3,000 miles. But on the positive side he obtained three trade groupings to become the highest paid infantry private. After WWII, being aware of the loss of so many good young lives during the war, Nick became disgusted with scheming politicians who were betraying these young men who had given their all to keep the alien from our shores, so during the mid 1950s he formed a political union. At 81 Nick is still involved with politics in his attempts to expose corruption in politics - but that's another story!

The compelling story of what really happened in a defeated Japan following the end of World War II.

Merchant seaman James Mackay, whilst travelling in the east, started to hear stories of massacres and other atrocities committed by Japanese forces, not just against enemy troops, but against innocent civilian populations. His subsequent investigations revealed reluctance amongst Allied governments to discuss these incidents that seemed to amount almost to a cover-up. Why would the Allies want to overlook the crimes of a former enemy, especially when the leadership of another former enemy was being liquidated at Nuremburg?

Using his own research, as well as material prepared by Australian Army war crimes investigator Capt. J.G. Goodwin, Mackay exposes the cover-up and names the guilty.

Not only were the Japanese keen to sweep the past under the carpet, but the US government of the time also had its own reasons for preserving the political and industrial elite in Japan. A provocative book, which calls into question the morality of US policy towards Japan after WWII.

Although originating from the UK, Danny Grant became a leading jockey in Rhodesia, riding at both the Borrowdale and Bulawayo courses. After the fall of Rhodesia he first centred himself in Natal, before moving to stables at the Bloemfontein track. Nothing is known of him since then, but a number of old contacts would be pleased to meet up with him again.



The Livingstonia organisation is a very interesting and intriguing movement which seeks to unite all those "British Africans" with roots in, inter alia, Kenya, Northern and Southern Rhodesia, Natal and the Cape. It is therefore an organisation which we feel has an extremely useful role to play, and may be contacted at:




I want to tell you, as a South African living in Moscow for four years, that the Russians
are not interested in South Africa anymore. They hate Black people with a passion. We
heard a rumour that the South African ambassador's wife had a cigarette stubbed out on
her chest when in public once. At least two South Afrcan ambassadors have been mugged,
once was mugged twice. Most Black people are too frightened to go out in public. The Russians are probably the best racists on earth. This is so ironic considering the impact that the Soviet Union once had on South Africa's destiny. What they really wanted was the wealth of South Africa and other African countries. They now know that their country is probably the richest country in the world with regard to oil and mineral wealth - so why bother with South Africa? They have plenty of problems of their own before they can start thinking of expansion - that was a Brezhnev dream. The sooner Black people in South Africa know that the Russians are not and never will be their friends, the better for everyone involved.

Yours etc.,

M.S., Moscow, Russia.



Francis Andrew, golly you really do get some odd characters don't you? - and teaching little Arab boys English, and a Roman Catholic attached to an odd group and not supporting the Iraq War! You may have had some doubts about the War, but once your own troops are involved you should keep quiet.

Yours etc.,

T.D., Southampton, U.K.



I've lived in Folkestone since I left the "new" South Africa joke. I have spent 2 hours reading your web-site and it is the only truth about the "new" South Africa I have found in years. I do get the monthly SCN from the Springbok Club. I think there are many White South Africans who live in Britain looking for partners from South Africa. Maybe you could help? Also this could help White South Africans to start a new life in Britain away from the hell the ANC has created for Whites in this "new" South Africa.

Yours etc.,

Guy Levi, Folkestone, U.K. (



Alas we must report that Mr. Francis Andrew, the bachelor who now resides in Jordan where he teaches litle Arab boys to speak English, continues to bombard us with infantile and insulting e-mails - many of them of a deranged lavatorial nature - in spite of constant requests by us to cease all contact.

We have recently been informed, however, that Andrew is involved with the "Conservative Democratic Alliance" web-site (an organisation, incidently, which is neither Conservative nor Democratic, and which contains several characters of a similar obnoxious anti-British nature as Andrew himself), where he likes to send very long and boring extracts from the Bible or other early Christian writings.

As we said in the previous edition of the SCN, Mr. Francis Andrew is certainly a lunatic character who we advise everyone to avoid at all costs.
