June 2006 Edition.


June 2006 edition

As the Soccer World Cup approaches, the attention of the whole world centres on Germany - even among those like most South Africans whose favourite sport is not soccer.

In the UK context, however, a most dark and worrying spectre has raised its ugly head. For historical reasons the various regions of the Britain Isles have always competed on an individual basis in international soccer competitions - an anomaly unknown anywhere else in the world. One would think that this would be an advantage rather than a disadvantage for Britain, as British citizens therefore have four teams to support rather than just one. Alas, however, this has not turned out to be the case in practice, and has been used by enemies of the British nation to divide the country.

During Home Internationals it is quite natural and praiseworthy to support your own particular ancestral or favourite part of the nation, so all those with Scottish connections (including this present writer) would always support Scotland against England (as also Northern Ireland and Wales against England for that matter!) - but this should surely NEVER be the case when other parts of the UK are playing foreign opposition (and we do NOT regard countries of the core Commonwealth as foreign!).

Over more recent years, alas, it has become increasingly common for a number of disloyal Scots to "boast" that they support ANY other team which plays England - and this regrettably has been most notable during the current World Cup competition, even up to the level of the so-called First Minister of Scotland. During the last occasion when Scotland qualified for a World Cup finals but England didn't (Argentina in 1978) English supporters gave their almost universal support to their brother Scots, and it was very difficult to find anyone in England who wasn't rooting for Munster rather than Biarritz during this year's Heineken Cup Final. So why therefore do so many present-day Scots evidently adopt this sick and indeed treacherous attitude?

What makes this spectre even more obscene is that apparently a particular "favourite" alternative team which disloyal Scots are supporting this year is Trinidad and Tobago - a side which doesn't appear to contain many fellow-Kelts! Scotland has produced more than its fair share of geniuses over the years, such men as Alexander Fleming, Adam Smith, James Watt, Mungo Park, John Dunlop and Robert Burns, as well a consistent line of leading British sportsmen and sportswomen, such as Jim Baxter, Gavin Hastings, Colin Montgomery, Liz McColgan, Mike Denness and David Coulthard. By supporting a third-world team rather than their English brothers this coterie of sickly Scots are surely insulting the memory of all of them.

For all true British patriots around the world there are only two teams to support in the current World Cup - England and Australia (though perhaps we should wish the United States well). In the long run, however, there is only one solution to this most worrying and retrograde development, namely that all sports should start fielding united "British Lions"-style teams in all future international competitions.



This year's Empire Day Buffet staged by the Empire Loyalist Club proved to be a well-attended and highly successful event, and confirmed that all the organisation's problems of last year are now well and truly over.

The evening began with a rousing rendition of "Waltzing Matilda" by Mr. Robin Willow, after which two most informative and encouraging speeches were given by the guests of honours, Dr Frank and Dr Amy McGrath, both of whom are leading members of the Australians for Constitutional Monarchy movement. In their talks both Frank and Amy McGrath gave clear overviews about the current constitutional position of Australia, and gave uplifting accounts of how the 1999 Referendum was won. Of particular note in this regard was the information that the leadership of Australians for Constitutional Monarchy was very young (many only in their 20s), and how the younger generation of Australians tended to be far more pro-monarchy than the middle-aged generation. The evening concluded with a sumptuous array of buffet-snacks being provided, and with good camaraderie at he bar.

The only sad note of the evening was the devastating news that Susan, the former manageress of the Dover Street Clarence who always looked after us so well in the past, had tragically died of malaria after a recent visit to Kenya. A minute's silence was therefore observed for her and for Eric Forth MP at the conclusion of the meeting.

Our heartfelt appreciation goes to John Gillon and the Hwange Conservation Society (UK) for their donation of spares for the National Parks land-rovers in Hwange National Park. The spares, valued at around ZW$500 million, arrived on British Airways two weeks ago and have been delivered to Hwange. Due to the current economic problems in the country, National Parks have been struggling to maintain their vehicles in Hwange National Park and it is impossible for them to operate efficiently without transport. They need the land-rovers for anti-poaching patrols and to ensure the regular maintenance of the pumps and pump engines. A special thanks to Christine Shields who organized a very successful Valentine's Dinner/Dance in aid of the Hwange Crisis. The money raised has enabled us to pay the duty on the land-rover spares and also covered the expenses involved in delivering the parts to Hwange. A big thank you to all those involved in this fundraiser and to all the people who supported it. There is still some money left in the kitty which we are putting towards another load of fuel for Hwange National Park. Their fuel tanks are dry again and fuel will be needed for the vehicles once they have been repaired. There is still a lot to be done in Hwange. We still need to get more pump engines and spares and fuel is an ongoing problem. If anyone can assist with anything at all, we would be most grateful. Our contact details are as follows :-

In the May edition of the SCN we carried a most inspiring report entitled "More Encouraging News From Australia", which showed that attempts by the pro-multi-cultural lobby to portray Australia as a country with a substantial multi-ethnic population was false, and that Australia was still an overwhelmingly White country. Unfortunately we neglected to give full acknowledgements in this article to our good friend and supporter Nick Maine from Queensland, who had sent us the original statistics upon which this article was based. Nick and his "New Anzac" colleagues are true heroes of the Australian struggle, and through their continuous efforts over recent years have helped to stymie attempts by the multi-cultural traitors to turn Australia into a "rainbow nation". These 2001 Census figures therefore confirm how successful the "New Anzacs" have been, which is an inspiration to all patriotic activists around the Western World.

In a way it is rather like the situation in the UK, where the pro-multi-cultural lobby also tried to exaggerate the non-White population of the country for their own nefarious reasons - though where the 2001 British census confirmed that non-White numbers were actually far less than they claimed. In this regard it is particularly interesting to recall how Muslim leaders tried to claim that their numbers in the country were some 2 million so that they could claim more influence and government handouts etc., and as a result mosques encouraged their adherents to "invent" extra family members on their Census forms. Even with all these false numbers, however, the final count showed that the Muslim population was actually about one-and-a-half million - i.e. only three-quarters of what they claimed!

"WAY OUT OF LINE" by Trisha Jackson is a novel which tells the story of the profound impact that an innocent youthful love affair has on the lives of two young lovers. The plot moves from a cult and a maximum security prison in the US to the savannah grasslands of Mozambique and Zimbabwe - this makes for adventure, suspense and melodrama. Packed with conflict and sexual tension, anyone who loves romance, passion and excitement should enjoy reading this story.

Trisha Jackson was born and grew up in Rhodesia. She immigrated to the USA with her husband and three children in 1990. She and her husband live in a unique, rural community in the Tonto National Forest in the eastern mountains of Arizona.

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.

No.91 : Mr. KEITH PINCHEN of Bulawayo.

Keith Pinchen, then only a relatively young man, helped to organise the Bulawayo leg of the tour of Rhodesia by officials of the "Save Rhodesia Campaign" of South Africa in 1978. Alas nothing further was heard of him after the fall of Rhodesia the following year, but we would very keen to learn whatever happened to him.

Once again, let me congratulate you on a superb cyber-newsletter, it's the highlight of my month receiving it in my inbox. I'm a fairly quiet supporter, I read the releases, but as I'm not located in Britain I can't attend the meetings. I like to keep up to date with the latest developments however.

Also, I've been meaning for a while to join the "Empire Loyalist Club" formally, but I've never got around to it. I'd appreciate any information you could provide.

Yours etc.,

Zuma is 64, and can be regarded as a bit of a ram. He admitted in Court that he had had intercourse with this girl, but informed the Judge that if you washed yourself in cold water immediately thereafter you were safe from AIDS. What a pity none of the thousands of doctors all over the world are aware of this simple precaution, which could only have occurred to an enlightened South African kaffir! This is the man which our much adulated president selected as his successor!

Yours etc.,

Richard Deane, Cape Town.




Congratulations upon reminding people about the leftist nature of the so-called 'British' National Party. What you could have added was that their fellow-travellers Mussolini and Mosley both termed themselves socialists before they adopted the term fascist - and that the correct name of their hero Hitler's party was the German WORKERS National SOCIALIST Party! [emphasis added]

Yours etc.,

J.H., London, UK.



Many readers will probably recall the problems we encountered from an obscure outfit calling itself the "Conservative Democratic Alliance" a short while ago. We thought that we'd heard the last from this small bunch of malcontents, but alas a supporter has recently alerted us to a further childish smear campaign which they have mounted against us on their web-site.

Why this CDA outfit should be concerned with our movement remains a mystery, for we appear to operate on totally different wavelengths. They are an overtly political organisation concerned only with internal issues, whereas we of course are a global social and patriotic movement with a specific interest in southern Africa, and with only a minor political dimension. The ideology of the CDA seems in any case to be very mixed-up and confused, advocating some very left-wing policies and other far more right-wing ideas. Here, however, may lie a clue to their renewed inexplicable antagonism towards us. Their latest smear campaign against us appears to have begun because some of their supporters took exception to our criticisms of the equally mixed-up and confused BNP fascist organisation in last month's SCN. At the time of the previous smear campaign against us one of our members described the CDA as "The BNP without the jackboots", so there may therefore be a lot of truth in this observation.

Of equal interest is the fact that the three main instigators of this current smear campaign seem to be the same trouble-makers who caused us problems in the past, namely Mike "Scruffy" Smith (who threatened to call the police after a leading LSC officials remonstrated with him concerning his previous vile smear campaign at a LSC meeting where he was most unwelcome), the certifiably insane Arabist Francis "Fruitcake" Andrew (a recent example of Fruitcake's lunacy is his laughable assertion on the CDA's web-site that we are not concerned about Britain's immigration problem!) and the revolting Gregory Frauder-Lost, of whom the less said the better.

Happily we do not seem to be alone in attracting the CDA's venom however, because they appear to have no other motivation apart from making enemies for themselves - most of them needless. They have been particularly antagonistic towards the present British Conservative Party leadership (so why therefore do they call themselves "Conservative" we wonder?), and have engaged in a particularly vicious vendetta campaign with one group of left-wing activists which resulted in a court case. This leftist grouping has furthermore now initiated their own web-site devoted to exposing the unnecessary confrontational antics of "Scruffy" Smith and the CDA. Although viewed from a very left-wing perspective, this web-site even so contains a lot of very interesting information, as well as a number of most amusing pictures and cartoons of Smith - who they nickname "Lard Brain"! It can be accessed at:-

By adopting such continuous confrontational attitudes the CDA leadership has therefore committed the classic military blunder of fighting wars on two fronts (or in their case maybe three fronts) at the same time. They will suffer accordingly.

Silly, sad and pathetic.
