February 2006 Edition.


February 2006 edition

Ever since the Islamic terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001 it has surely been obvious to all but the most myopic that Western civilisation faces a resurgent threat from an old and insidious foe. The events which have followed have only but re-emphasised this danger, culminating in the current anti-Western hysteria throughout the Muslim world as result of some completely innocuous Danish cartoons.

In spite of all this clear antipathy towards the West and all which it stands for by Muslims throughout the world (most grotesquely by those currently resident in the West) there are still incredibly many in the West who choose to close their eyes to this threat by attempting to distinguish between so-called "moderate" Muslims and so-called "extremist" Muslims. These same shapers of opinion also go out of their way to deny that there is now a "Clash of Civilisations" taking place around the globe - but clearly there IS a "Clash of Civilisations" taking place, which only those in a complete state of denial can possibly dispute.

A simple history lesson shows everyone that ever since its inception the Mohammedan religion has been hell-bent upon imposing its repressive, expansionist and misogynous faith throughout the world. Twice previously in history - during the eighth century by the Moors, and during the seventeenth century by the Ottomans - Europe has been threatened by the invasion of Islamic forces. Although during the nineteenth and early twentieth century this danger was countered by the ascendancy of benevolent Western Imperialism, and subsequently - bizarrely - by Soviet hegemony in central Asia, there now once again seems to be a more subtle invasion of Western Europe taking place by Muslim hordes.

During the twentieth century Western civilisation faced serious threats from two more secular forms of oppressive totalitarianism - Nazism and Communism (and in this regard it should never be forgotten how the Nazis kowtowed to the Mohammedans - both in the Balkans and in the Middle East). During this era the West also alas seemed to be led by those who were in denial about the dangers posed - the appeasers of the day. Only a few brave statesmen had the intellect and courage to identify the threats posed and to speak out against them, most notably Sir Winston Churchill, Sir Anthony Eden and Brendan Bracken. What the West now needs desperately therefore is for a new Churchill to arise who is not afraid to acknowledge the "Clash of Civilisations" which currently clearly exists, and to oppose the Islamic monster which threatens us all.



Although the Springbok Club's 2006 AGM proved to be a very difficult occasion because of the need to address all the problems which confronted the organisation during 2005, it even so ended on a very positive and indeed successful note.

Following a very depressive Organiser's report, and a somewhat happier Treasurer's report, two important motions were then put forward for debate.

The first of these motions proposed that a new parallel organisation be established which would have a far wider scope and remit. After much genial discussion it was eventually agreed that the name of "The Empire Loyalist Club" should be adopted for this new parallel organisation. A similar constitution will be adopted for the Empire Loyalist Club as for the Springbok Club (with changes of name where necessary), and activities in future will be conducted under either of these two titles depending upon which is considered to be the most appropriate. Membership of one organisation will automatically entail membership of the other, unless any individual member requests otherwise.

The second motion was more technical, and proposed a number of changes to the constitution of the new joint organisation which would establish a new smaller and streamlined, and hopefully more efficient, five-person Executive Committee. This proposal was also carried, and subsequently the following people were elected to the new streamlined ExCo: Bill Binding, Alan Harvey, Allan Robertson, Robert Shipley and Daniel Wilkinson.

Following the business side of the meeting an illustrated report-back was given by those who visited Gibraltar in October in order to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar (perhaps the only unambiguously successful event of 2005!), which was very positively received, and which ended the meeting with great hope for the future.



Details of the next Springbok Club meeting are as follows :-

Guest Speaker : Mr. SIMON McILWAINE

Date : Wednesday 22nd February 2006.

Time : 19.15 hrs for 19.30 hrs.

Venue : THE CLARENCE (the upstairs Parliament Room), 53 Whitehall, London W1

Belfast-born Simon McIlwaine hails from a staunch Ulster Unionist background, but has lived in London for the past 23 years, where he now practises as a solicitor. An active member of the Conservative Party (he stood as Conservative Parliamentary candidate for Manchester Central during the 1997 General Election), and has had articles on foreign, social and economic policy issues published by both the Adam Smith Institute and the Edmund Burke Foundation. He has taken a strong interest in Israeli and Middle Eastern affairs for some time, and is a member of the Conservative Friends of Israel and Christian Solidarity Worldwide, as well as being an active member of Anglican Friends of Israel (a non-partisan Christian fellowship which stands in solidarity with the Jewish people and the State of Israel) for whom he currently acts as Co-ordinator. He made an extensive trip to Israel during 2005, visiting most parts including the Gaza Strip, where he witnessed the defiant struggle of some of the beleaguered Israeli settlers there. He will be speaking in a personal capacity at this meeting, concentrating upon his experiences during this recent visit to Israel. (Simon McIlwaine is a distant relative of Sir Robert McIlwaine, the former Rhodesian High Court judge who was knighted in 1939, and after whom Lake McIlwaine was named.)



The SC/ELC will be staging two joint meetings with the London Swinton Circle during March under the banner of the Patriotic Forum. The guest speaker at the first of these two meetings to be staged on Tuesday 14th March will be Ms. Paula Adamick, the managing editor of the London-based Canadian expatriate newspaper "The Canada Post". At the second meeting, to be held on Wednesday 22nd March, the guest speaker will be Mr. Bob Vinnicombe, a New South Wales representative of the Australian "One Nation" party.

On Saturday 29th April the SC/ELC is planning to stage a visit to the Bishops Stortford Museum in Hertfordshire, which houses an expanded Rhodes Museum in the house where Cecil John Rhodes was born, which the Springbok Club visited previously in January 2000.

More details about all these events will appear in future editions of the SCN.



The Northern Ireland Branch of the Springbok Club staged a belated Day of the Vow commemoration meeting successfully at the end of January. The branch will be holding their AGM on Saturday 4th March at Enniskillen in Co.Fermanagh. For more information please contact the branch direct at: The SC/ELC Northern Ireland Branch, P.O. Box 35, Ballymoney, Co.Antrim, BT53 7YE, U.K., or e-mail:

The London Branch of the SC/ELC is still trying to organise a meeting at which one of their leading members will be giving a talk on early Anglo-Saxon history. More details will be given in a future edition of SCN as soon as arrangements have been finalised.

It is anticipated that the Hampshire Branch of SC/ELC will be re-established with a meeting during the summer. Any supporter in the Hampshire area who would like to become actively involved should e-mail:



The London Swinton Circle staged a most interesting and well-attended meeting last month at which the guest speaker was Mr. Derek Turner, the editor of the influential magazine "Right Now!". Mr. Turner gave a most polished speech detailing many of the problems which confronted present-day Britain, but ended on a far more hopeful note by emphasising several of the more encouraging national developments, particularly regarding the growth of opposition to immigration. Perhaps the only problem at this meeting was the unwelcome presence of the absurd Gregory Lauder-Frost (aka Frauder-Lost) in the audience. Mr. Frauder-Lost was of course central to a smear-campaign against the LSC and a number of its leading officials on the web-site of the so-called "Conservative Democratic Alliance" a few months previously, so the reason why he should subsequently wish to attend a LSC event remains a complete mystery, particularly as one despicable outburst which he made during this meeting showed that he most certainly did not share the patriotic sentiments of the organisation. Mr. Frauder-Lost clearly realised that he was not a welcomed guest however, for he rapidly skulked off together with a lackey as soon as the meeting was over!

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

Date : Wednesday 1st March 2006.

Time : 18.45 hrs for 19.00 hrs

Venue : THE CLARENCE (the upstairs Parliament Room), 53 Whitehall, London W1

Guest Speaker : Mr. William Frazer of the Northern Ireland-based anti-terrorist organisation F.A.I.R. ("Families Acting for Innocent Relatives").



Thousands of elephants in South Africa’s Kruger National Park need your help.

The largest land mammal on earth, elephants are extremely intelligent, social and grieve tremendously for the loss of family members. Can you imagine these majestic creatures being herded into family groups by helicopters, and then shot in the head by marksmen?

This population control measure (cull) by lethal means is exactly what is being proposed by South Africa National Parks (SANParks) in order to protect the vegetation of the park from a perceived overpopulation of elephants. But culling is a cruel, unethical and scientifically unsound practice that does not consider the welfare implications to elephant society as a whole, which is why it has been banned in South Africa since an international outcry halted the practice in 1994.

Culling has been heavily criticised by many independent scientists, some of whom are considered to be the most reputable scientists working on elephant biology and population dynamics in Southern Africa. Very little is actually known about the impacts that elephants are having on bio-diversity in the Park. Published ‘evidence’ of the destruction caused by elephants comes from non-scientists and is based largely on observation.

There is a better way. A way that relies on nature itself to manage elephant populations and reduce any impact large elephant herds could potentially have on vegetation in national parks.

By allowing a greater migration of elephant groups between parks and countries in southern Africa, i.e. the creation of a network of connected protected areas or ‘megaparks,’ elephant populations can be managed by natural forces such as drought. In fact, Kruger is already part of a trans-boundary initiative linking it to national parks in Mozambique and eventually Zimbabwe.

We have squeezed elephants into small reserves in which, in many cases, the natural factors controlling elephant populations can no longer operate. A series of conservation networks that include differing landscapes and conditions — some ideal and some non-ideal for elephants — can restore conditions that give rise to natural mortalities. Elephants would benefit, people would benefit and so would the revenues raised by tourists wanting to view the magnificent sight of herds of roaming elephants.

No proof means NO CULL

Sound science should be informing the management of the Kruger National Park. By dealing with elephants in short-term isolation, SANParks is not considering a holistic approach to the management of the Park’s resources. A cull will also tarnish South Africa’s image as a reputable wildlife destination.

The Minister of Environmental Affairs and Tourism is due to make a final decision on elephant culling by the end of the year. That’s why we need you to send South Africa a message urging the government to reject culling elephants in Kruger National Park right now.

It is said that elephants never forget. Let’s make sure South Africa doesn’t forget why it banned the culling of elephants in the first place.

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.

If anyone knows anything about Kim Strong could they please contact Bruce Strong urgently on email


Claudia Ehrhardt from Mannheim in Germany writes as follows:-

"Today I write to you because I have a request hoping you can help me. A comrade of mine, 24 years, wants to go to South Africa for some time doing a safety job, for example guarding of farms. He is highly motivated and I think in today's situation there must be a lot of farmers who need someone doing this job. Some years ago I was in South Africa making the military South African parachute wings, but unfortunately I have no contacts in South Africa, Maybe you know a possibility, what we can do. I would be very glad to hear from you."

No.87 : Mr. TOD MYERSCOUGH of Connecticut.

Tod Myerscough was a founder member of the Springbok Club when he was based in UK whilst studying at the University of London during the mid-1990's. He was a keen and dedicated member of the organisation, and became a valued and respected friend to all involved. He returned to his native United States towards the end of the decade, and during following years remained in good and regular e-mail contact. A few months ago, however, e-mails sent to him started to "bounce", and subsequent correspondence sent to his last known address in Connecticut was returned as he had evidently moved location. If anyone could provide us with his new e-mail and/or postal address we would of course be most grateful.



The Northern Ireland Branch of the Springbok Club/Empire Loyalist Club has recently launched its own web-site. Needless to say we can recommend it to all, and it can be accessed at:-





Well done. Quite right. I like the Iranian pincers. Get snipping!

Although I understand your reasoning in giving free speech to the likes of Deirdre Fields, I feel that you did yourself no good by publishing her feeble views in the SCN.

As it is with the current situation regarding the old Union of South Africa, in my estimation the only thing that will restore civilised White rule to that land will be for the Royal Navy to arrive in Table Bay, Port Elizabeth and Durban, and then hoisting their Union Jacks besides the "Orange White and Blue". To have that happen we need to sweep from office our own traitorous government for "Operation Good Hope" to succeed. We need not worry too much about resistance because I am sure the responsible majority of ordinary people will welcome the restoration of order and sanity.

A few years ago we were contacted by a certain Guenther Zorn from Vienna in Austria, who ordered a real South African flag from us. Accepting his bona fides at face value we therefore supplied this item to him, together with a complimentary copy of a recent edition of S.A.Patriot-in-Exile. His reaction to this was incredible, writing back to us attacking us in a most arrogant and insulting manner. After a subsequent brief exchange of correspondence it became obvious that Herr Zorn's opinions concerning South Africa were diametrically opposed to our own, and contact with him then seemed to cease. A few months ago, however, he decided to re-contact us, again insulting and attacking our stance in a most pathological fashion. Has anyone else had any contact with this trouble-maker we therefore wonder, or know anything further about him?


We would like to thank the supporter from Cape Town who recently supplied us with information about the awful Capstick-Dale couple and their highly-suspicious "Corporate Image" group of companies, who deceived one of our advertisers so badly. This information could prove extremely useful in future actions which are anticipated.




Sir Freddie Laker, who died earlier this month, was a true entrepreneur who exemplified everything which was good in the capitalist system. He was by nature a gut-patriot, and a great admirer of Margaret Thatcher and all that she did for Britain. He became bitterly disillusioned with certain elements in the British government however, particularly following the witch-hunt against his Trans-Atlantic Skytrain low-cost airline, which forced his company out of business and subsequently left Britain to live in the United States. Although regrettable, the reason for this decision can certainly be understood.

There is one very significant but little known fact about Sir Freddie Laker however. During the 1970s he was approached by an old friend who he had worked with at Short Brothers in Rochester during WWII who had became very active with a then new and seemingly authentic patriotic political party in the Medway Towns, who asked him if he would make a financial contribution to this party's funds. Sir Freddie apparently made investigations into this party and discovered that certain highly-sinister neo-Nazi elements were prominent in this party at national level, so therefore declined to become involved in any way (which as a result opened up the eyes of his former friend also). This incident therefore clearly illustrates the grave dangers which result if any contacts are established with neo-Nazi sympathisers.
