October 2007 Edition.


October 2007 edition

There can have been few if any previous sporting championships where the winning team received less enthusiasm from their home nation than was the case with South Africa's victory in the recent Rugby World Cup.

Most Blacks, of course, are not in the slightest bit interested in Rugby and by all accounts greeted the result with massive indifference. For the ANC hierarchy, however, the so-called Springbok side was far too White for their liking, and in spite of Mbeki and co. milking the beano in Paris for all it was worth they were really seething with anger that even after 13 years in power it was mainly Afrikaners who had given the country its biggest sporting triumph. On the other hand for South African Whites - who are daily confronted with escalating crime, collapse in national infrastructure and threats of hijackings, rapes and murder under the current ANC regime - there was little to celebrate in seeing their team win whilst sucking up to this same terrorist regime.

It seems, however, that the ANC's next move will quickly be forthcoming, and that the World Cup win will prove to be White South Africa's "last hoorah". It has been well reported that a quota system for all national teams similar to those already imposed at provincial and club level will shortly be enforced - and that the Springbok badge and name will have to be dropped in Rugby just as it has already been dropped in all other sports.

As far as we are concerned the sooner the second of these predicted moves comes about the better. It was the late, great Dr. Dannie Craven who asserted that only Whites should be allowed to represent Springbok teams - and he was right. South Africa may be a single piece of geography, but it comprises many nations, and each one of them has the right to their own national teams competing in international competitions - rather than the single mish-mash of the so-called "rainbow nation" which few can take any pride in. Under the ANC regime multi-racial sporting teams are inevitable, so let them play under a new name such as "The Proteas" or some other insipid nomenclature, rather than defiling the historic and much loved Springbok title.

Our movement will then be able to guard and hold in trust the holy Springbok name - guard and hold it in trust until such time as civilised rule is restored in South Africa, when authentic Springbok sides can once more run out onto the field with true pride and honour.



The Springbok Club/Empire Loyalist Club and the London Swinton Circle joined forces under the banner of the Patriotic Forum last month in order to host a meeting addressed by Mr. Dennis Delderfield, the National Chairman of New Britain.

Mr. Delderfield gave a most enthralling and optimistic speech on the theme of "The Commonwealth" in which he illustrated how the British Commonwealth of nations still provided a viable alternative to EU integration which was full of great potential. He further emphasised how there was still a strong pool of sentiment for closer ties with the UK around the Commonwealth in spite of the fact that so many British politicians seem to have turned their backs on their Commonwealth brother nations over recent decades, and how this sentiment was closely linked to the Royal Family. In addition Mr. Delderfield also gave most encouraging news about the great progress which New Britain has been making over recent months, and how increased support was being obtained even up to the highest levels in the land.

Alas the turnout for this meeting was somewhat lower than had been hoped and expected, which most put down to the fact that it had unfortunately been arranged for the same time as the important England v. Tonga match in the World Cup - but perhaps the fact so many people put taking pride in their national team in front of attending a meeting isn't such a discouraging manifestation! Be this as it may, a number excellent new contacts were made as a result of this meeting, and it is hoped that the SC/ELC and the LSC will be working increasingly closely together with New Britain in the days ahead.



Alas circumstances have prevented the planned guest of honour for this year's Springbok Club/Empire Loyalist Club UDI Day celebration buffet, a direct descendant of one of the most prominent original Rhodesian pioneers, from attending this particular event, although it is anticipated that he will still be the SC/ELC's guest of honour at next year's Rhodes & Founders celebration buffet.

Instead we are happy to be able to announce that the guest of honour for this year's UDI Day celebration buffet will be a prominent Rhodesian memorabilia entrepreneur, who will be showing extracts from some of the many inspiring Rhodesian video recordings which his company markets. This buffet will probably take place on Saturday 24th November, but full details will be given in next month's SCN.



The Kent Branch of the SC/ELC is planning an informal pub gathering in the north Kent area sometime during late November/early December. Again full details will be given in next month's SCN.

The London Branch of the SC/ELC is planning a trip to see the finish of the Doggett's Coat & Badge race on the Thames in July/August next year - although it is anticipated that there will be another branch function before then.



The London Swinton Circle held a most interesting meeting earlier this month at which the guest speaker was Mr. Tim Akers, the Grassroots Co-ordinator of the Taxpayers' Alliance. Mr. Akers gave a masterful speech in which he illustrated how the general burden of taxation was far too high in the UK, and advocated "flat taxes" as a solution. He also condemned the level of both Government and EU waste, and concluded that it was imperative that the UK left the EU. A strong Atlanticist, Mr.Akers furthermore emphasised how important it was that a grassroots movement in favour of low taxes was built in the UK similar to that in the US.

Details of the next London Swinton Circle meeting (its Autumn Buffet) are as follows :-

Date : Friday 9th November

Time : 19.00 hrs

Venue : The Counting House (the upstairs function room), 50 Cornhill, London EC3 (nearest tube station: Bank - leave by Exit 5)

Guest Speaker : Mr. Roger Helmer MEP (Conservative, East Midlands)

[Tickets for this event are priced £15.00 per head - which includes a buffet - and can be obtained by writing to: London Swinton Circle, P.O.Box 29208, London SE8 3ZU. All cheques should be made payable to "The London Swinton Circle".]



New Britain held a most important pro-Gibraltar meeting in the City of London earlier this month. Alas the planned guest speaker, Mr. Albert Poggio OBE, the official Gibraltar Representative in the UK, was unable to attend this event at the last moment because of an unexpected pressing engagement in his official capacity at the EU in Brussels. Instead, after Mr. Dennis Delderfield the National Chairman of New Britain had said a few words about his own experiences of the Rock, Mr. Alan Harvey, the Organiser/Secretary of the Springbok Club/ELC and current Chairman of the London Swinton Circle, gave an unscripted talk about his own experiences from several visits to Gibraltar, and about its history and constitutional position and development. This speech was extremely well received, particularly for its depth and the fact that it was prepared at such short notice.

New Britain also held their traditional wreath-laying ceremony at Nelson's tomb in St.Paul's Cathedral to mark Trafalgar Day this year, and the following day held a most well-attended Trafalgar Dinner in Weymouth. This was followed by a special Trafalgar Lunch held at the historic Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich, at which the after-dinner speaker was Mr. Robert Crouch MVO, who for 12 years had been the official Bargemaster to HM The Queen, a past Master of the Company of Watermen & Lightermen, and winner of the Doggett's Coat & Badge Race in 1958. Mr. Crouch gave a most enthralling address about the history of the Company of Watermen & Lightermen and about the history of the Doggett's Coat & Badge Race in particular, and also explained the close connection between the watermen and lightermen of the Thames and the Royal Navy, especially during Nelson's Day. It was most encouraging to see a large percentage of members and supporters of both the SC/ELC and the LSC at both these events, thus demonstrating the increasing close links between all three patriotic organisations.

[ Robert Crouch has written a most fascinating book about the Doggett's Coat & Badge Race in novel form entitled "The Coat". It is priced £12.50 (including p.& p.) and can be obtained by e-mailing Robert at: ]

There is once again a critical shortage of fuel to pump water into the pans for the animals in Hwange (Wankie) National Park which is not surprising in view of the extreme shortage of basic commodities in Zimbabwe. The park needs 20,000 litres of diesel to ensure that there is enough water for the animals to drink during the dry season (August to November) if we are to avoid a repetition of the water crisis of 2005.

We realize that with the enormous difficulties we are experiencing in Zimbabwe at the moment with simple day to day living, most people will not be able to assist the wildlife as they have done in the past, much as they may want to, but if anyone is in a position to help with either fuel or the funds to buy fuel, please contact us. We would be extremely grateful. Our contact details are below.

We have recently been sent the following most revealing news report from "Beeld" by a supporter in the Transvaal:-

"The chief of the Ekuhuleni [sic] Metro Police, Robert McBride, is scheduled to appear in court on Friday on charges of drunk driving and
defeating the ends of justice. A source close to the judicial process says that McBride has been informed that he will appear in the Pretoria Regional Court on charges of, among others, drunk driving and defeating the ends of justice, after rolling his official vehicle near Centurion [Verwoerdburg] in December last year.

"'There are other charges as well' the source said, but declined to give details.

"McBride was returning from a metro police year-end function at Oberon resort near Hartebeespoort Dam on December 21 when he rolled his blue Chevrolet Lumina.

"Witnesses told Beeld that McBride had been roaring drunk when they tried to speak to him that same evening.

"He was led away from the scene by Ekurhuleni [sic] Metro Police before any tests were done to determine his blood alcohol level.

"The metro officials also threatened to shoot bystanders if they dared to call the police.

"A decision on whether McBride would be prosecuted was postponed for months while his dossier was passed back and forth between the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and the police for further investigation.

"The process was further delayed when three of McBride's confidants, Chief Superintendent Stanley Sagathevan, Chief Inspector Patrick Johnson and Superintendent Itumeleng Koko turned against him in May and released information to the NPA.

"The Star reported recently that all three, who were expected to appear as state witnesses, said in their statements to the NPA on May 30 that McBride had drunk a large amount of whisky at the year-end function. They also said that after the crash, they took McBride to a doctor, a
relative of Sagathevan's, to be examined.

"They later also visited doctors on the East Rand in search of a false doctor's certificate and after visiting an attorney and a pathologist in
Durban, they managed to get a false certificate from a GaRankuwa doctor.

"The three were granted an urgent interdict in court last week to prevent McBride and five others from threatening them."

[It should be remembered, of course, that this same scumbag McBride was convicted of carrying out the terrorist bombing of Magoo's Bar on the Durban beachfront in 1986, when 3 innocents died and scores (including our good friends Keith Hulse and Alan Mountford - whose courageous action in rushing Keith to hospital undoubtedly saved his life) were injured. McBride, furthermore, was the grandson of the notorious Sean McBride, an evil IRA terrorist who fornicated with non-White women and who was instrumental in the UN plan to seize SWA from South Africa and to give it the ridiculous name on "Namibia". Deformed genes certainly seem to run in the McBride bloodstream therefore! From personal experience we can recall the younger McBride inadvertently gate-crashing a Save Rhodesia Campaign meeting at the Cafe Geneve in Durban with his White-trash girlfriend circa 1978, when after being confronted he made a hasty retreat down the stairs uttering some anti-White sentiments as he went. It was good therefore to learn that this filthy terrorist at last seems to be getting his come-uppance! - ed.]



Malcolm McNichol writes as follows :-

"I am researching for a book on my late father Douglas James (Pat) McNicol. He was from New Zealand and served in the SAAF in the 1930’s and worked as a flying instructor for De Havilland in Rhodesia. He met my late mother Barbara Pasker (born Barbara Sheard) at the Light Plane Club in Bulawayo. He lost a leg in a plane crash in Rhodesia approx. 1939, in an incident similar to that of 'Pat' Judson, I believe.

"I would appreciate any information that you think may help or perhaps an indication where I might look.

Sheila Blamire writes as follows :-

"Is there any association who can provide help and advice for South Africans who need accommodation - this is for my mother-in-law who is 80 years old and is dependant on family in Zimbabwe as she cannot live alone in South Africa. The situation there is now so sensitive that we feel she may have to come here and we need to try and find her accommodation and support. She is ex-South African army, and ex-Rhodesian Army.

"Many thanks,

"Sheila Blamire,"

"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.107 : Mr. JEFF TRIBE of Maidstone

Jeff Tribe was a keen member of the Roundhead Association English Civil War re-enactment society during the early 1970s, and subsequently became very active in patriotic British politics in Kent. He made good contact with our movement in South Africa during the late 1970s and early 1980s, but then alas all liaison suddenly ceased. We would be very keen to learn where he is now.



The "Deadline S.A." web-site details not only the impact of the escalating crime epidemic in South Africa, but also demonstrates how the present South African government is benefiting financially as a direct result of crime. All those still living in South Africa or who still have connections with the country should have a good look at this site, which can be accessed at :-





There was talk of the Lotto starting up again two Saturdays ago in the papers and on radio - nothing happened, and since that announcement not one word again. Makes you wonder ???

Yours etc.,

Rodger, Johannesburg, Transvaal.




Stumbled across your web-site this morning. Reading all the news articles featured is nothing new to me. I live in a suburb of Johannesburg - middle-class, nothing fancy, but comfortable. I would like to tell your readers that the news reports and personal stories portrayed therein are indeed true and there is no exaggeration of facts.

I was brought here in 1980 from the UK by my parents and consider myself South African. I have had three children here in South Africa - and time is running out! We have made the heart-rending decision to leave the country. My husband has been pressuring me since 2001 to leave, but I was a "liberal" and thought all would be good and sorted, but things are bad here and you definitely have to have major "street smarts" to survive in South Africa today. I am tired of it all now and plan to move to a first-world country where I don't have to watch my back at all times and wonder if I am going to be car-jacked everytime I pull in or out of my driveway.

To be honest and fair, there are a lot of good, decent, hard-working people in South Africa of all colours: Black, White, Indians, Coloureds, who just want peace and health and a little bit of money to keep them going. But the criminals who have, literally, this country on its knees are running rampant and unhindered and do as they please.

My children's job prospects are poor in South Africa as they are "Whiteys", and my daughter who is six has the highest chance in the WORLD of being raped, just because of the country we live in!

Good luck, and keep on bringing South African news to the world.

Yours etc.,

"Saffer", Johannesburg, Transvaal.




Crime is so out of control now, I cannot see this useless Government ever doing anything about it, or gaining the upper hand. Very depressing to us normal law-abiding citizens. Every conversation eventually leads to this subject.

As you know the Blacks are a very vengeful nation and if you say or do something they do not like they just kill you! Nobody is safe anymore.

Keep up the good work.

Yours etc.,

ACS, Durban, Natal.




The new Conservative Government of Canada has approved the flying of our traditional Red Ensign from all Royal Canadian Legion offices, and the one near me has done so - it is the original ensign with the green leaves on the crest. It looks impressive!

In the April 2004 edition of the SCN we reported how our long-standing friend and supporter Nick Maine from Australia had decided to retire from active politics. This of course was a big disappointment at the time, but it transpired that he intended to continue his political commitment by running an e-mail circulation list, and accordingly added us to this list. Although many of the postings which he circulated were very informative and interesting, they alas also contained quite a number of items of an ultra-defeatist nature, as well as some increasingly objectionable cranky conspiratorial material, so eventually by mutual consent he agreed to remove us from his list.

Shortly prior to this, however, he circulated a posting - complete with gruesome pictures - which read as follows :-

"This girl was chopped up in broad daylight in front of a crowd in Hillbrow , JOHANNESBURG , SOUTH AFRICA May 13, 2007 - A man in his 30s is set to be charged later this week in the shocking beheading of a 21-year-old woman at a mini bus depot in JHB central Monday.

"Stacy Wilson was pulled off a bus and chopped to death by a man police later identified as Samuel. Up to last night , cops here gave no motive for the horrendous murder, which happened before dozens of stunned onlookers.

"Wilson sustained several chops to her body before her head was severed along with her right hand by the machete-wielding Samuel, who held the head for a bit before dropping it.

"He was soon after nabbed by Metro Cops. He is set to be charged following a post mortem on Wilson later this week.

"(Hillbrow had been a high class suburb before Black rule)"

Accepting the bona fides of this report which Mr. Maine had sent we therefore added it to our "Latest News from South Africa" web-page - only to be informed a few weeks later by a reader that this atrocity had not taken place in South Africa, but in Kingstown, St.Vincent! - something which can be confirmed by accessing:-

Needless to say the publication of this erroneous information caused us huge embarrassment, and we apologise to all readers who may have read this report on our web-site and been similarly misled. We subsequently wrote to Mr. Maine asking for an explanation, but alas to date haven't received the decency of any reply. Mr. Maine is now an old man aged 85, so we will leave it to our readers to judge his motivation for having circulated such a misleading doctored piece of information.



Most readers will be familiar with the problems which we have been faced with over the years from Mr. Arthur Kemp, a former seemingly close friend of our movement who subsequently turned against us. Kemp currently tries to convey an overtly neo-Nazi image (even now writing for the neo-fascist so-called "British National Party"), though further information which we have received from a number of reliable sources suggests that he is actually working for the ANC regime. A colleague has however informed us about a most interesting article which recently appeared in "The Mail & Guardian" which seems to confirm both Kemp's neo-fascist connections and his links to the South African security services. This can be accessed at :-

We must admit, however, that even though we thought we knew all there was to know about young Mr. Kemp, we never realised before that he had a "supercilious sneer"!




It was with great sadness that we learnt of the recent death of Peter Whitelaw. Peter was born in Somerset in 1937, and worked in a solicitor's office before gaining a high-ranking position in the administration of the Post Office. A prominent member of the Streatham Constituency Conservative Party, Peter Whitelaw had a zest for life, and was a keen crossword-puzzler. He had been a loyal and dedicated member of both the London Swinton Circle and the Springbok Club/ELC for many years, and will be sorely missed.

See you again next month!
