September 2006 Edition.


September 2006 edition

Undoubtedly the most nauseating story to come out of South Africa during recent years has been the account of the self-abasement - some might even say racial-masochism - of former Minister of Law and Order Adriaan Vlok, who according to reports "knelt down and washed the feet of a leading Black cleric to seek forgiveness for the sins [sic] that he committed during his time in office".

One has to wonder, of course, what "sins" were involved in serving to preserve civilised rule - so that South Africa did not become the crime capital of the world, did not witness a genocide campaign against its farming community and urban population, and did not experience the wholesale rape of young children in the bizarre belief that sex with a virgin cures AIDS.

Be this as it may, Vlok's sickening stunt only proves what we tried to warn people throughout the 1980s, namely that the NP government was part of the problem and not part of the solution facing South Africa. In spite of his reputation as being a relative verkrampte, Vlok did absolutely nothing to prevent de Klerk's sell-out of the nation during the early 1990s, and in this he was joined by all the other so-called NP verkramptes such as Magnus Malan. Vlok, however, is not the first NP cabinet minister to reveal his true treacherous colours. "Pik" Botha eagerly joined the terrorist ANC even before the NNP was disbanded, and Piet Koornhof (who incidentally was the little boy who opened the door of the Voortrekker Memorial when it was inaugurated in 1938) divorced his White wife in order to marry a Coloured woman. All this only goes to confirm that the NP was rotten to the core even as far back as the days of B.J.Vorster!

Shortly after being forced to leave South Africa in 1990 this present writer was asked by British supporters of South Africa to write an article explaining the mystery of why the South African Whites so meekly agreed to surrender their country to the terrorists with seemingly no resistance whatsoever. This article, entitled "Why we got it wrong about the Afrikaners", was subsequently written, and in view of the great anger which then existed following the recent fall of South Africa to the forces of darkness, proved to be a very hard-hitting analysis. It was argued that the fault lay with the three main institutions of Afrikanerdom - the NP, the NGK and the Broederbond - all of which regarded their nationalism as geographic rather than ethnic, and the manner in which so many Afrikaners followed the increasingly liberal agenda of these three institutions like sheep (or perhaps more accurately like lemmings).

The reaction to this article was incredible, for, in spite of the fact that it was never published, a copy somehow found its way into the hands of young Mr. Arthur Kemp. Most readers will probably recall how Kemp gave every appearance of being a mainstream conservative like ourselves during the 1980s, but then mysteriously metamorphosised into a neo-Nazi crank during the 1990s, and also how significant evidence came to light to suggest that he had been working for both the old and new South African security agencies all the time, apparently with the brief of adopting a neo-Nazi image in order to embarrass and discredit the authentic forces of right-wing resistance in South Africa. Kemp then posted this article onto a neo-Nazi web-site in the United States - but mischievously and wickedly twisted the analysis to suggest that ALL Afrikaners had been condemned, rather than just the three liberal-leaning Afrikaans institutions. This twisted posting, moreover, resulted in a number of threats being made by lunatic neo-Nazi types from the United States.

Adriaan Vlok, of course, was a leading member of the NP government, a prominent Broederbonder, and - to the best of our knowledge - a staunch member of the NGK. His recent puke-invoking act of self-abasement therefore merely confirms the basic points which were made in this original analysis. One is puzzled, therefore, as to why Kemp should have gone out of his way to vilify this article so wildly - after all he claimed to be a CP-supporting opponent of the NP during the 1980s, and also an avowed atheist? Over to you Mr. Kemp ....



During August the Springbok Club/ELC took part in a "Sherlock Holmes" walking tour of central London organised by "London Horror Tours". This proved to be a highly enjoyable and informative event, and was joined by Mr. Richard "Jock" Spooner, a long-standing supporter of the movement now based in NSW, Australia. After the tour members adjourned to a Baker Street hostelry where they were joined by other supporters of the SC/ELC, and where "Jock" Spooner conveyed details of the current Australia situation at a convivial informal reception. We are furthermore happy to be able to announce that Mr. Spooner has provisionally agreed to take on the position as the Australian Co-ordinator of the SC/ELC.



As most readers will probably be aware, the planned SC/ELC guest speaker for September, Sir Alfred Sherman, sadly died last month, and a brief obituary to this great conservative thinker appears at the end of this edition of the SCN.

Alas the SC/ELC has not been able to organise any alternative attraction at such short notice at national level, but instead the London Branch of the organisation has asked the current Organiser/Secretary of the movement, Alan Harvey, to deliver the same talk that he will be giving to the Northern Ireland Branch later during the month, which will be entitled "The similarities and differences between the Ulster and Southern African struggles". Details of these two meetings are as follows :-

London Branch :-

Date : Monday 25th September 2006

Time : 19.00 hrs for 19.30 hrs

Venue : THE CLARENCE (the upstairs Parliament Room), 53 Whitehall, London SW1

('phone 07711-188430 for more details)

Northern Ireland Branch :-

Date : Saturday 30th September 2006

Time : 11.30 hrs for 12.00 hrs

Venue : Ballymoney, Co.Antrim

All those interested in attending should please e-mail nispringbokclub@hotmail.com for more precise details of the location, and in order that the necessary catering arrangements may be made. There will be no charge for members of the SC/ELC, but non-members will be asked an admission fee of £3.00 (cheques payable to "Northern Ireland Springbok Club").



In October the Kent Branch of the Empire Loyalist Club will be organising a trip to Chatham Dockyard (where of course HMS Victory was built) in order to celebrate Trafalgar Day. An informal conducted tour will be led by Mr. Robert Shipley (the Overseas Liaison Officer of the SC/ELC) who is a great authority on the Dockyard and the naval history of the area. Fuller details will be given in next month's SCN.

On Wednesday 15th November the Springbok Club will be most honoured to welcome Mr. Johnny Rodrigues as Guest of Honour at a special buffet function which it will be staging. Johnny Rodrigues is Chairman of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, a wildlife protection organisation based at Hwange (Wankie) National Park in Zimbabwe, which works to prevent poaching and other illegal killing of Zimbabwe's precious wildlife, whilst the current ZANU-PF regime seems to turn a blind-eye. Mr. Rodrigues will be giving a fully-illustrated talk about the work of ZCTF, and fuller details about this most exciting event will appear in future editions of the SCN.

In December the Springbok Club hopes to welcome a famous South African journalist as Guest of Honour for its annual Day of the Vow commemorations.



Last month the London Swinton Circle welcomed Mr. Stuart Notholt, the Vice-Chairman of the Campaign for an Independent Britain, as guest speaker. Mr. Notholt gave a most riveting address, in which he clearly detailed the threats which Britain faced through continuing membership of the EU, and why complete withdrawal was therefore so necessary in order to restore Britain's greatness.

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

Date : Tuesday 26th September 2006

Time : 19.00 hrs

Venue : THE CLARENCE (the upstairs Parliament Room), 53 Whitehall, London SW1

Guest Speaker : Mr. Edward Spalton (a former senior civil servant and businessman, and a leading member of the Freedom Association.)



Your help is urgently needed to stop a one-off sale of 60 tonnes of elephant ivory from Botswana [Bechuanaland], Namibia [South-West Africa] and South Africa. This amount of ivory is equivalent to 3,500 dead elephants. If this ivory sale goes ahead it will have a devastating effect on elephants around the world. Any legal sale of ivory will create a smokescreen for illegal ivory trade, creating a huge incentive for poachers to slaughter endless elephants for their tusks.

Ivory poachers kill more than 10,000 elephants in Africa each year to supply the illegal ivory trade. Every time an elephant is killed it brings them one step closer to extinction. Elephants never forget and neither should we. Elephants are highly intelligent social creatures that create lifelong relationships. They cry, play, and have incredible memories - but when an elephant walks by the ivory-stripped remains of a slaughtered loved one, they stop still, pausing sorrowfully to roar and mourn. Elephants can stand vigil over dead herd members for days, even covering the bones with branches and dirt.

Please help the International Fund for Animal Welfare to stop the trade in ivory by sending an e-mail to your local MP. Ask him/her to urge the UK Minister for Bio-diversity, Mr Barry Gardiner MP, to oppose the stockpile sales and any future calls to re-open the trade in ivory.



The Right Perspective is an excellent broadsheet published by a group of patriotic students opposed to the dominance of the leftist-liberal media in Britain, which has recently published an expanded third edition. To obtain a copy e-mail: tory_taylor@hotmail.co.uk

In the second edition of this publication a profound article entitled "Dealing with poverty in Africa" appeared, which read as follows:-

"The billions of Pounds that have been pumped into the continent of Africa have done nothing to prevent the famine, AIDS and war that have engulfed the continent since the demise of Empire. Countless government initiatives have failed to address the problems, like the excuse for a pop concert (LIVE 8) and the continuous cancellation of debt. It is time a new initiative was proposed to rid the continent that is a scar on the rest of the world. Under British civilised rule, no such issues existed. Wealth and food was evenly distributed between British army and government officials, and the natives. AIDS was never even in existence under civilised rule and the reasons that have spread AIDS, like homosexuality and sex outside marriage were condemned. As much as the left-wing propaganda and self-determining nuts like to believe otherwise, it is no coincidence that this has all occurred since the surrender of our African colonies to the warlords that now rule. What Africa could really do with now, is a good dose of colonisation under the paternalistic eye of us British. One makes the point very sensibly, that there is no point in ploughing money into countries where the wealth does not filter down to the people, but where a government fat-cat spends it on his wedding ceremony instead! Neither is it a coincidence, that the states of South Africa and Rhodesia are engulfed in their current situations. Since the demise of civilised rule, both countries have gone on a downward spiral. Inflation in Rhodesia peaked at 2000% and over 75% of the population is unemployed. Under British civilised rule in contrast, Rhodesia was the breadbasket of Africa, where the Whites owned the farms, and the Blacks earned a good wage working the land. There was no such disease as AIDS and certainly no famine. Similarly in South Africa the Blacks in the townships are now even poorer than they were under apartheid. Whilst it is a hard argument to make - that a nation has a Divine right to rule - the achievements of the British Empire in building nations to what they are today comes close to the phrase. Our biggest mistake, however, was abandoning these countries when we did, and not nurturing them through to full development. They were so quick to cry 'independence', but so also to come running back for aid at their point of need. The reassertion of British rule around Africa would combat these increasing problems, simply because we have done so in the past. The situation in Zimbabwe, South Africa and smaller nations highlight this point. The demise of the continent of Africa has mirrored the demise of the British Empire. To my way of thinking, there seems to be only one solution to the problem."



For several years Zimbabwe/Rhodesian pensions have been withheld, and, it is suspected, the arrears have been stolen. Zimbabwe has gone from barbarism to degeneration with only a small interval of civilization. The people mainly responsible for that civilizing interval were dumped when the British Government off-loaded its Colonial responsibilities.

Most of the pensioners are British and are enraged by the silent acceptance of their stolen pensions. Many served in the British Forces in World War II, and their fathers fought in World War I. Many were encouraged by the British Government to go to Rhodesia and help in its post-war development. They then became victims of "The Winds of Change" and the blunders of inept or deceitful politicians.

Recently, the G8 countries cancelled $3.5 billion of African debt. Now they are discussing more billions to be given as aid. A fraction of this money would settle all Zimbabwe pension entitlements. Payment of pensions and arrears at the historic rate of Z$2 to one pound Sterling should be made a condition of any future aid procedures.

Many Zimbabwe pensioners are descendants of the Rhodesian Pioneers, who were heroes of Britain's Colonial Empire. They turned bushland into the breadbasket of Central Africa and made Rhodesia the Pearl of Africa. Now the breadbasket has become a basket-case, and these pensioners are surviving on handouts from charitable foundations.

Many pensioners cannot leave Zimbabwe; they are old and frail. Their monthly pensions (paid in Zimbabwe) will buy no more than a loaf of bread. They were born there, they have no other citizenship, their British stock is not recognized - they are dying. Please help them in any way you can.

We have recently received the following media release from the Transvaal Agricultural Union :-

"The President of TAU SA, Mr Paul van der Walt has requested the [South African] President, Mr Mbeki, in writing to repudiate the Minister of Safety and Security after his utterances that people who complain about crime should rather leave the country. Mr Nqakula's remarks were irresponsible and thoughtless and he owes the country an apology. Notwithstanding wide criticism from opposition parties, stake-holders and the public, Nqakula remains as silent as the graves of victims of crime. Mr van der Walt made it quite clear in his letter that should Mbeki not repudiate his Minister in public this will be interpreted as silent approval of his stance."



The following report appeared in a recent edition of the "News from Zambia" newsletter (available from: 4 Ashurst Way, East Preston, Littlehampton, Sussex, BN16 1AG) :-

"One hundred and forty-two ex-Northern Rhodesia and Zambia residents - as well as several of their children who had grown up in the country - sat down to lunch at the annual gathering of the Northern Rhodesian Reunion Association, in the Bibury Suite of the Salisbury Racecourse in Wiltshire. The oldest member attending was Gervas Clay, 99, who was Resident Commissioner of Barotseland in the 1960s. John Coates, a member of the Northern Rhodesia Police Association and of the Zambia Society Trust, made an appeal for a joint project which supports orphans of Zambian policemen and women. He also paid tribute to John Wyatt's organisation of the excellent lunch. Mrs. Elisabeth Young - whose late husband, Tom Young, was High Commissioner to Zambia, 1998-2002 - raised £150 through the sale of greeting cards, for the Zambia Society Trust."

We recently received the following request from Stan Nisbet :-

"My youngest son, Darren, has finally landed a very good job in Durban and urgently requires single accommodation with bathing facilities at a reasonable rental, as from this Wednesday the 21st. He is married and his wife will stay with us until he finds his feet. I would be extremely grateful if you would 'put the word out' amongst your readers who may have a vacant room, out-building, caravan or whatever. Please contact Darren on his Mobile 0844285609 or me, Stan, on 0834170085, Sylvia (my wife) on 0835618715, or at home on 032-456 3856."


We have also recently received the following two requests from New Zealand via the KK organisation :-

"Can anyone put me in touch with Keith and Charlotte Kirkman formerly of Dorrington Farm, Norton, Zimbabwe. We were good friends, due to our interest in Angus cattle breeding during the late 80s and early 1990s, and I often think and worry about them and regret not having been a better letter-writer. It would be really great to renew contact; their lives must have been really disrupted. The computer age, which I have only just got into, makes contact so much easier. In hopeful anticipation, Susan Clayton [now Kain], formerly of Te Ohu Angus Cattle Stud, Dannevirke, New Zealand, e-mail; skain@xtra.co.nz"


"Please can you help me locate John and Patricia Colyer. They arrived in New Zealand from Zimbabwe either late 2005 or early 2006 from Harare [Salisbury]. We shared a container, and I have recently received two large pieces of furniture which I believe belong to them. Many thanks,
Anne Greeff. My e-mail is cherokee.mango@xtra.co.nz"

In a recent speech to the UN Falkland Islands Councillor Dr Davies explained that the Islanders are never going to give up their right to self-determination and asked the Decolonisation Committee to support this. He pointed out that self-determination isn't just for "native" people - and pointed out that the majority of Argentines aren't natives themselves, while the Falklands has a history of seven or eight generations of peaceful development, which he pointed out is longer than in many parts of Argentina. He even quoted the Argentine national anthem with its call for liberty, and asked that if Argentines value this so highly themselves then why can't they allow it for the Islanders! He said that in reality Argentina would be a colonial power if it succeeded with its claim, and ended by emphasizing that the Islanders will never sacrifice their right to self-determination "in exchange for material benefits" (clearly a reference to Argentine economic pressure).

111 pages. Illustrated. With excellent cartoons by Fusilier Norman Lambert, produced whilst in captivity. Soft-back £5.00 (cover price £10.00)

An irreverent, left of centre, look at life as a POW by Jimmy Walker, who was captured by the Japanese following the fall of Singapore in 1942. Jimmy takes us through incarceration at the notorious Changi jail, forced labour on the railroad, and deportation to Japan, where the Japanese exploited the mining skills of the boys from Northumberland. Norman Lambert’s sketches are both amusing and frightening at the same time. Through the bitterness and resentment, and physical trauma of captivity shines the humour and the indomitable spirit of the British soldier. An enjoyable and educational read, with a surprise ending.

Prices include p&p. Payment can be made by credit or debit card. To order on line, log on to www.paypal.com and enter postmaster@gcartwright.demon.co.uk as payment destination.

No.94 : Mnr. MARCEL RUTER of Hilvemsum, Netherlands

Marcel Ruter was one of the earliest subscribers to the original S.A.Patriot when we were still based in South Africa. Members of the Springbok Club were very impressed with the man when they met him in person during a trip to the Netherlands in 1999, but alas he is believed to have moved shortly after this, and recent attempts to re-contact him have proved unsuccessful. The SC/ELC Overseas Liaison Department is now very keen to learn how he can now be contacted therefore.



Following the very well-received talk given by Stuart Notholt to the London Swinton Circle last month, we thought that readers might be very keen to look at the official Campaign for an Independent Britain web-site. This can be accessed at :-






I was walking home from a Pub - not even half-a-mile from my home - late on a Friday night about a month ago, when I walked past what I thought were a group of Black men getting into their car. I was almost past them when the one bastard said "You interrupted us - we have to kill you now". I looked at them thinking this was some joke - then I realised they were breaking into the car. There were at least three, maybe four of them, and they proceeded to beat me to the point of almost death. Luckily I managed to kick the one bastard and give the hardest punch I have ever managed, which gave me enough time to scramble to my feet and run for my life. I made such a noise by that time people were taking notice, so my attackers left me.

The very next day from my flat window I saw the same people doing this to what could only be a 14 year-old boy, but this time it was early evening. I could do nothing, and then a week after that our family butchery got held-up at gunpoint.

I say VIVA death penalty!

Yours etc.,

LRN, Midrand, Transvaal




Would you attend the Soccer World Cup if it was held in Iraq right now? If the answer is "NO", why would you attend it in South Africa where more people are being killed on a daily basis than in Iraq?

Yours etc.,

Johann Marx, Roodepoort, Transvaal




I was amazed yesterday to hear on the local radio news that the South African Police have been banned from using tear gas on rioters, as this is an infringement of their human rights! I have no doubts myself as to the truth of the announcement.

Yours etc.,

Richard Deane, Cape Town, Cape Province




I hope FIFA is properly embarrassed by their decision to award the 2010 Soccer World Cup to South Africa. Imagine expecting a country run by third-worlders to host a World Cup Tournament. They haven't got a clue! They'll have to pull out all the Whites available to make it work, but they're in the process of exterminating the Whites, and those they haven't exterminated they are systematically removing from the workplace and replacing with incompetent, unqualified Blacks - all in the interests of Black Empowerment, the South African version of "affirmative action". The "Old" South Africa under the Whites could definitely have risen to the occasion, but that's all over now.

Yours etc.,

"Kendon", Amanzimtoti, Natal




It was with great sadness that we learnt of the recent death of Sir Alfred Sherman, particularly as he had agreed to speak at a future Springbok Club/ELC meeting. Sir Alfred was proud of his Jewish roots, but this did not stop him from being intensely loyal to the country where he lived and grew up. A renowned economist, he became a leading advisor to Margaret Thatcher, and was the intellectual force behind so many of the Conservative Party's successes during the 1980s, particularly the policy of privatisation. Sir Alfred was also a strong opponent of non-White immigration into the UK, and advocated a policy of repatriation, even for those non-Whites who by chance had been born in the country. In this regard he was particularly concerned about the dangers posed by the million-and-a-half Muslims resident in the UK - warnings which are of course being confirmed more and more by the day. Our sincerest sympathies are extended to Sir Alfred's grand-nephew Adrian Sherman, as also to other members of his family.



It was also with great sadness that we learnt of the recent death of the popular Rhodesian singer and comedian Wrex Tarr whilst entertaining in Cape Town at the age of 71. Wrex Tarr, the "Chilapalapa King", was certainly not a "politically correct" performer, but was greatly loved and admired in Rhodesia where his acts did so much to lift spirits during the days of the Bush War against Terrorism. Again our sincerest condolences are extended to Wrex's family.
