October 2010 Edition.


October 2010 edition
We have probably been at fault - though we have not been alone in this - in forgetting the plight of Mr. Clive Derby-Lewis over the past few years.

For those who are not aware, Clive Derby-Lewis was a renowned South African soldier, businessman, Conservative Party politician, MP and President's Councillor. He was popular, charismatic and a highly articulate orator - indeed he proved the CP's most effective English-speaking spokesman, and was respected even by many of his political opponents for his charm and winning personality. It was because of his growing popularity and persuasive skills in alerting South African Whites to the realities of surrender to the ANC terrorists that he became "public enemy No.1" as far as the sellout NP administration and the incoming ANC regime were concerned during the early 1990s; they could cope with opposition from Afrikaner spokesmen, but if effective opposition spread to the British-South African community - as Clive was increasingly successful in initiating - then their surrender plans could be stymied by united White resistance. It was for this reason that the enemies of South Africa came to the conclusion that Clive had to be silenced.

Their method of doing this was cunning and sinister. In 1993 the known ANC terrorist leader Chris Hani was assassinated by a Polish immigrant named Janusz Walus. Walus was quickly identified and arrested - but astonishingly Clive Derby-Lewis, one of the most high-profile political figures in the country, was arrested as well, together with his wife, the charge against him being that he allegedly supplied Walus with the assassination weapon. The only "evidence" laid against him in this regard was that Walus (who he barely knew) had left a message on his answering machine "boasting" that he had shot Hani. In spite of the complete lack of evidence Clive (though eventually not his wife) was still charged with the murder of Hani, and after what can only be described as a Stalinist show trial was found guilty of murder and, together with Walus, sentenced to death. [It is not the purpose of this article to debate whether or not it is morally justifiable to eliminate a known terrorist leader - the matter in focus here is that although Janusz Walus indisputably pulled the trigger which despatched Hani, there was no evidence which would have stood up in any Western court of law to implicate Clive in any way.] Central to his conviction was the evidence of a certain Arthur Kemp who had turned State's Witness (an article in the "Mail & Guardian" of February 18th 1997 exposed "that Kemp, a former police security branch member, has been an informant for the NIS [National Intelligence Service]").

The death sentences against both Clive and Janusz Walus were eventually commuted to life imprisonments, but even so such a sentence imposed against a clearly innocent man can only be described as an obscenity. Our movement set out to alert the powers-that-be in the West to the injustice perpetrated against such a famous and honourable man by organising a "Release Clive Derby-Lewis Campaign" shortly after his imprisonment in the mid-1990s - even bringing out a special edition No.32 of "S.A.Patriot-in-Exile" to highlight his plight. Unfortunately, however, we were asked to abandon this campaign by Clive's family who feared that it might damage his chances of being released by appealing to the so-called "Truth and Reconciliation Committee". Although we feared that such an appeal would be futile, there was no way that we could go against the wishes of his family, so the campaign was therefore regrettably closed down. As we predicted, however, this appeal to the "Truth & Reconciliation Committee" ended in total failure, as did several other similar actions over subsequent years - with even an appeal for parole when Clive became eligible last year being turned down by the ANC regime.

Today therefore, some 16 years after his original imprisonment, Clive Derby-Lewis still languishes in Pretoria Central Prison. We have recently learnt, furthermore, that Clive is now seriously ill, having been diagnosed with skin cancer and gangrene in the left leg. It must surely be a stain on everyone's conscience - particularly among Western leaders - that there has been no sustained protest against his prolonged and unjustified imprisonment. Our sincere best wishes are of course extended to him even more intensely at this time, and we hope that all our readers will remember this true South African hero and martyr in their ongoing thoughts and prayers.


The Springbok Club/ELC was most honoured to receive a special invitation to attend the official book-launch of Mr. Graham Gillmore's new book "The Philistines" about the Pathfinder Company of 44 Parachute Brigade of the SADF at "The Rifles Club" in London last month. This proved a most spectacular and inspiring event, with a packed audience including scores of former Pathfinder Company members from around the globe, and a mesmerizing speech from Graham Gillmore himself. Many old friends were met at this event, as well as several good new contacts being made. Our sincerest thanks are extended to the 30 Degrees South UK publishing company for organising such a memorable evening, and especially for making members of the Springbok Club so welcome.



Details of this month's Springbok Club/ELC meeting are as follows :-

Date :  Thursday 14th October 2010

Time :  19.00 hrs (assemble in the downstairs bar from 18.00 hrs onwards)

Venue :  The ANTELOPE (the upstairs Function Room), 22 Eaton Terrace, Belgravia, London SW1W 8EZ (nearest station: Sloane Square)

Guest Speaker :  Mr. BERT OOSTHUIZEN

Mr.Oosthuizen is South African born and an IT specialist and businessman who was driven by seeing the injustices and true conditions prevailing in the "new" South Africa to start his own Internet blog-site which became known as "South Africa Sucks", and rose to prominence thereon as the "Uhuru Guru" blogger. As a result of this Mr. Oosthuizen was victimized and terrorized by the ANC regime, subsequently being forced into exile in the UK. In his illustrated talk he will be telling something about his own personal experiences at the hands of the ANC regime, and will also be illustrating many of the reports regarding the current situation in the "new" South Africa which initially appeared on the "South Africa Sucks" web-site.



The Springbok Club/ELC will be staging its annual UDI Day celebration in November, and its annual Day of the Vow commemoration in December. On both occasions special guest speakers are anticipated, with fuller details to be announced in next month's SCN.

During early Spring 2011 the Springbok Club/ELC will be making a trip to Hatfield House in Hertfordshire in order to pay our respects at the RLI "Troopie" Statue which is now situated there, as well as touring Hatfield House.



The Kent Branch of the Springbok Club/ELC staged a most successful and enjoyable get-together in Canterbury last month, with a small but significant increase in attendees from the previous such event. It was also provisionally agreed to hold a similar gathering at the same venue next January.

The London Branch of the Springbok Club/ELC will be making a trip to the RAF Museum in Hendon in the near future. Full details will be given as soon as they are finalised.



The Springbok Club has now installed a PayPal facility to its main web-page at so that all those who wish to help the ongoing work of the organisation may do so easily.



Unfortunately the Deputy Chairman of the Swinton Circle, Mr. Gary Cartwright, was prevented from attending last month's meeting which he was due to address because of urgent and unexpected commitments in Brussels. Happily, however, that very good friend of our movement, Mr. Bob Vinnicombe from Sydney, Australia, who was visiting the UK at the time, stepped into the breach at short notice and gave a most enlightening talk about the result of the recent Australian General Election, and his predictions about probable future developments following this outcome. Our sincere thanks are of course extended to Mr. Vinnicombe for being prepared to give such a last minute presentation.

The Swinton Circle, will be staging a special event to celebrate Trafalgar Day towards the end of the month (probably on Saturday 23rd October) at "The Yacht" public house in Greenwich (nearest station: The Cutty Sark on the DLR), at which it is anticipated that a special guest of honour will be present. Precise details will be decided upon at the October 14th Springbok Club meeting, and can be discovered by 'phoning 07711188430 after that date.

The Swinton Circle has also now finalised meetings to be addressed by sitting MPs every month from November 2010 until March 2011; full details of all these events will be included in future editions of the SCN.

We would also like to remind everyone that the Swinton Circle now has a presence on Twitter, on which news about the organisation and policy statements are regularly posted. This can be found on Twitter @SwintonCircle



We have recently received the following report from the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force :-

"Following our May report about the animals being captured in Hwange National Park for the purpose of being sold to Pyonyang Zoo in North Korea [DPRK], we are now delighted to announce that the shipment has been cancelled.

"We would like to thank everybody who participated in protesting against the removal of these animals from Zimbabwe. We do not yet have accurate information on what will now become of the animals that have already been captured but we have an unconfirmed report that the 2 young elephants will be sent to Wild Horizons in Victoria Falls for rehabilitation before being released back into the wild.

"Although we are very grateful that the shipment was cancelled, we are still concerned because at a National Parks press conference last month, the Director General of National Parks stated that there were a further 5 countries who had placed orders to buy animals from Zimbabwe. We do not know whether or not National Parks are planning to fulfil those orders."



Lara Johnston from George has informed us about a new scheme which advocates a return of South African refugees to the Netherlands. A report about this scheme can be found at :-

A supporter recently forwarded us an interesting article about the mysterious murder of Dr. Robert Smit in 1977, which alas is far too long for inclusion in the SCN. Dr. Smit was a young intellectual Afrikaner who served as South African representative to both the World Bank and the IMF, before being nominated as National Party candidate for Springs at the 1977 General Election. He was believed to be on the verkrampte wing of the NP (certainly on economic matters) before he was murdered in a most bizarre and sinister manner along with his wife on the eve of the General Election - murders which still remain unsolved. This reminded us of another mysterious death of a Right-of-Centre NP politician a few years later, namely the "suicide" (few people believed that it was suicide) of John Wiley. Does any reader have any further information or theories about these mysterious deaths we wonder, and any clues about whether they may have been connected?



The Rhodesian Light Infantry Regimental Association in the UK (part of the world-wide RLI Regimental Association) has recently had a series of films on a single DVD created which tell the story of the Rhodesian Bush War, as seen through the eyes of the men who fought in it. This is a new set of films which are not in anyway related to those that have been around for a number of years, and the proceeds are to be used to maintain our Troopie statue, smuggled out of Zimbabwe, as well as the creation and maintenance of an RLI museum.

For more details about how to order this DVD please contact Mark Pilbeam at:

Details the disasters of Mugabe's Zimbabwe, and illustrates the similarities between Mugabe's rule and that of Mandela/Mbeki in South Africa. It can be ordered on-line at:


ISBN: 978-1-920143-49-7 / paperback / illustrated
Retail price: R250.00, Web-site price: R200.00 + postage

The narrative gives the reader an overview of the history of the White man in southern Africa with detailed emphasis on the Rhodesian story through the life and times of PK van der Byl, one of the major players in a political drama that ended in the accession to power of Robert Mugabe under the auspices of the British government. By his very nature PK was controversial and confrontational. This account is likely to give offence to some because it portrays him as bluntly as he was in real life. Much can be contested about PK van der Byl but few will dispute he was an extremely colourful character with a devilish sense of humour. This memoir covers his life with a full flourish while doing nothing to detract from the seriousness of the international political and military conflict in which he was engaged. The reader will glean new information on a highly controversial subject and emerge with a more sympathetic understanding of what PK van der Byl and his colleagues did and strove for. The human tragedy that has followed the removal from power of Ian Smith and his Rhodesian Front party will almost certainly force the reader to deal with some uncomfortable conclusions, of value to anyone sincere about grappling with the volatile and deeply troubling challenges that confront all Africans today.

No.143 :  Mnr. T.J. FERREIRA of Boksburg.

T.J. Ferreira was the leader of the Conservative Party caucus on Boksburg Municipal Council during the late 1980s, when the CP-dominated council was one of the biggest thorns in the side of the sellout NP government, and spearheaded national resistance to the NP's appeasement policies. He subsequently became Mayor of Boksburg, and gave an inspirational speech to the Patriotic Forum in Durban at the time. It would be very interesting to learn where he is now, and whether he managed to escape from the "new" South Africa.



As is usual at this time of the year we this month recommend a web-site of one of the Sussex bonfire societies. Although we recommended an early site relating to the Cliffe Bonfire Society a decade ago, their official site has subsequently been considerably upgraded, and can be accessed at :-





Yes we in Africa lost all we held dear, because we only wanted peace and quiet, and to be left to get on with our lives.

This was destroyed not by the terrorists that invaded our countries, but by the extremist and fanatical western governments, who made the White rulers of Africa out to be the murderers and butchers of the peaceful Black majority who wanted nothing more than to be left alone to live their lives.

Throughout history the minority have always oppressed the majority, even in this country we the majority are subjected to the will of the minority, and we are like sheep led by the Judas goat to slaughter.

One of the reasons why the Soccer World Cup seems to be a "huge success" is the undeniable fact that only 25% of the expected international visitors actually arrived. That means this country is now flooded with "empty" hotel rooms, guest houses and beds. People that have prepared to cater for 500,000 visitors are now giving their foods away to prevent if from rotting. All the airports are reported to be "coping" with the "increase demand for seats" - surely they do, there's no visitors here! There are no traffic jams, there are no power cuts, there are no spectator mess-ups, for one simple reasons: Nobody arrived to watch this joke - and the perception is created that South Africa was "prepared" and could actually host such an event. Even the prostitutes are complaining about the lack of business!

If this country was flooded with 400,000 visitors like most other countries had when they hosted such an event the infrastructure and the existing facilities would have collapsed long ago. Now it looks absolutely grand and spectacular and fantastic - with about 175,000 visitors, if that many, who have actually arrived.

Would there be any government department willing to give us the exact figure of how many visitors this country had for the 2010 World Cup? I guess not, and the press, once again, keeps mum - under instruction from the powers that be.

Johann Marx, Roodepoort, Transvaal




I would like to thank your publication for the assistance and exposure coverage you have given to the on going genocide of Whites which is taking place in South Africa.

Since the Black ANC Government has taken over in 1994 there has been more than 45,000 Whites brutally murdered by Blacks in South Africa. 3,142 White Farmers have been brutally murdered by Blacks. Most were elderly Whites and many were horribly tortured and raped before being murdered. 50 to 160 Murders per day, 1 rape every 17 seconds, many of which are children and babies.
Black racist Julias Sello Malema and his rebellious, juvenile delinquent youth continue singing their ethnic cleansing song "Kill the Boer, Kill the White Farmer". Julias is promoting hatred, promoting Crime, soliciting murder and promoting GENOCIDE. Julias + ANCYL + ANC are an Accessory before the Act. Julias is in violation of the International Genocide Convention of the United Nations and is guilty of this crime and should be prosecuted, convicted and jailed for promoting genocide.

There is a massive blackout on crime statistics, and all statistics which are released are fraudulently altered by the ANC Police. Newspaper Journalists are threatened that if they report crime their press accreditation to the FIFA World Cup will be cancelled and they will be cut out the loop. 2010 crime is hidden from overseas tourists; there is a TV blackout on crime. Only 20% of 2010 FIFA soccer tickets were sold to overseas tourists, therefore under 200,000 actually arrived. The ANC government spent R23 Million of tax payer's money buying tickets for their family and friends to fill the stadiums. The ANC government spent more than R40 BILLION of tax-payer's money on stadiums and facilities for 2010; we will be in debt for the next 30 years!

98.5% of all convicted criminals in jail are Black. Only 5% of criminals are convicted, therefore 95% of Black criminals are walking free. On average a Black criminal commits more than 120 crimes before he is arrested for the first time. The ongoing genocide of Whites continues. South African Black criminal thugs are the most violent in the world, confirmed by Interpol and the Chief of ANC Police, Cele. Whites are definitely being targeted. Genocide of Whites continues.

Once again the "Begging Bowl" is out in the West to bail out the totally incompetent corrupt Black ANC. South Africa is always begging for money. Mandela is always begging for money. It is not the responsibility of the West to look after Africa. The Blacks broke it they must fix it. Donated money is mostly stolen by ANC government thieves. Socialism has failed because the ANC have run out of other people's money. African National Corruption has bankrupt South Africa. Don't be misled with sweet talking LIES!

In our report in the August edition of the SCN about the suicide of the late and unlamented Michael "Scruffy" Keith-Smith at Portchester Castle we ended by stating that we hoped that "the remaining members of the 'sickly clique' make a collective visit to Portchester Castle." By 'sickly clique' we were referring to those associated with Keith-Smith's defunct so-called 'Conservative Democratic Alliance', an outfit which had been waging a vicious, irrational and totally inexplicable hate campaign against our movement.

One member of this 'sickly clique' was a certain Ian Anderson (aka Anderscum) who was exposed in previous editions of the SCN as being the Deputy Chairman and then Chairman of the extremist National Front during the 1980s, before being chucked out of that party for being so obnoxious (no mean achievement!). He then tried to found his own rival "National Democratic Party" (named after the German neo-Nazi party) but this only lasted for about five minutes, and a couple of single-issue groups which he subsequently tried to establish didn't last much longer. Somehow, however, Anderscum managed to keep his hands on several of the NF's assets, including their broadsheet known as "The Flag" (no connection to the Flame Lily Foundation's far more professionally written publication of the same name), which he continued producing as a personal publication.

The circulation of "The Flag" was clearly very small, and it was full of 'moan and groan' articles - with apparently no action carried out by any government of any colour meeting with Mr. Anderscum's approval! Anderscum astonishingly attended a number of Swinton Circle meetings during the mid-2000s, but was eventually barred from attending not only because of his notorious political past but also because of his antagonistic and aggressive questioning of guest speakers - indeed Mr. Anderscum was one of the five uninvited and unwelcome trouble-makers who gate-crashed the problematic Swinton Circle meeting of 22nd July 2008 before he was asked to leave. Probably as a result of being asked to leave Anderscum carried a very nasty and indeed libellous smear article attacking the Chairman of the Swinton Circle in a subsequent edition of "The Flag" (such smear articles seem to have been Anderscum's stock-in-trade, for a similar smear attacking UKIP Leader Nigel Farage appeared in the same edition!). After being alerted to this article we ensured that one of our supporters was on Anderscum's circulation list. He reported, however, that issues of "The Flag" ceased arriving after the end of last year - but in early August he received a circular from Anderscum stating that he had been hospitalised for an unspecified "serious illness" for several months, but that the next "The Flag" would be appearing before the end of August. In spite of the fact that we are now well into October no further copy of "The Flag" smear-sheet has so far been received, and furthermore Anderscum's very primitive web-site for the publication has now disappeared.

Let us hope therefore that this means that Anderscum's smear-sheet has now followed "Scruffy" Keith-Smith into oblivion!




Andy Ripley, who sadly died in June aged only 62, was one of the greatest all-round talents that Britain has ever produced. A phenomenally successful sportsman, academic and businessman, it was said of him that he had "a brain like Einstein, a pen like Shakespeare - and could have doubled as Steve McQueen". Andy Ripley somehow managed to cram more into his action-packed life than most people would be able to do if they lived ten times his age!

Although best remembered as an outstanding No.8 forward playing for Rosslyn Park, England and the British Lions, Andy Ripley was actually a superb all-round sportsman. He took up rowing whilst studying as a mature student at Cambridge University, almost making the Varsity Eight for the Boat Race, though still proving good enough to be selected to row for Goldie whilst in his late 40s. He also excelled at athletics (reaching the semi-finals of the 400 metres at the 1978 AAA Championships), canoeing, basketball, lawn tennis and water-skiing. Not surprisingly he was also a champion triathlete, and won the BBC Superstars contest in 1980.

He studied initially at the University of East Anglia where he qualified as a chartered accountant, but returned to academia later in life to gain a MPhil at Cambridge aged 50. A skilled linguist, his French was good enough for him to become a Rugby commentator with French Television. As well as running his own accountancy training company and a company marketing Rugby equipment, he was also at various times deputy general manager of the United Bank of Kuwait and a director of a chain of London health clubs. Somehow he also found time to undertake voluntary work for a number of sports charities for the disabled, and never forsook his beloved Rosslyn Park, who he played for until he was 41 and subsequently became Club President.

He was tragically diagnosed with prostrate cancer in 2005, but devoted the rest of his life to alerting people about the disease through the Prostrate Cancer Charity and preaching total defiance - and hope and determination to overcome.

Andy Ripley is best remembered to us as a member of the British Lions squad who toured South Africa in 1974 however. All members of this squad had to make a conscious decision to tour the country in order to express their solidarity with their South African kith and kin in the face of fierce left-wing intimidation. Like almost all other players selected Andy Ripley would not be intimidated however. This present writer met him briefly at Kimberley during this tour, when he was incongruously dressed in jeans and official tour blazer! Even then he radiated an air of true greatness to a degree which few other tour members possessed.

All the time that Britain can continue to produce people like Andy Ripley then the country has nothing, NOTHING, to worry about for the future.



It was with great sadness that we recently learnt of the death of John Gouriet. After retiring from the British Army with the rank of Major in 1973 John Gouriet devoted much of his life to opposing crypto-communism. He was a Director of the National Association for Freedom, and in this position he inter alia successfully stopped the Post Office unions from blocking 'phone calls and mail to South Africa, and consistently opposed sanctions against South Africa in general. He is best remembered, however, for the decisive role which he played in defeating trade union attempts to stop the lawful operations of the Grunwick photo-processing company.

John Gouriet was also a strong supporter of the Swinton Circle. He knew about the crisis which engulfed the organisation in mid-2008 - and knew which side he was on! He had provisionally agreed to speak for the organisation, particularly about the Grunwick dispute, though he warned us that his poor health would probably prevent this. Alas this prediction sadly proved correct, and as a result we will now never have the honour of hearing this truly great man tell of his fine achievements. Our sincere sympathies are extended to his widow Sarah and to his three sons.
