October 2015 Edition.


October 2015 edition

As we have commented previously, it is not so much the current swarm of mainly Muslim migrants invading Europe themselves who anger us the most regarding this most worrying situation, but rather the self-hating Europeans who seem to be welcoming these interlopers into their own homelands with their sickening “Welcome Refugees” campaigns.

In this regard, seemingly inevitably in these “politically correct” days, it is the leaders of the Christian churches (of most, if not all denominations), who are the greatest to blame. The Pope of Rome has “boasted” about opening up accommodation in the Vatican complex itself for these mainly Islamic migrants, Angela Merkel has cited her own Lutheran upbringing as the main reason for her misplaced compassion, and it is the clergy at the Malvern Anglican Parish Church who are whipping up the campaign to pressurize the Council of this most unlikely provincial town to house far more of their fair portion of these aliens. The ironic thing about the attitude of so many Christian leaders in this regard, of course, is that these mainly Muslim invaders seek to supplant the very Christian nature of European society which they claim to stand for. The Mohammedan religion has such a fierce hold over its adherents that there is absolutely no chance of any of them converting to Christianity, whereas it has always been the duty of Muslims to conquer the World for Islam by any method possible. It is just as if the entire Christian church now has a death-wish.

This present writer recently visited Leicester Cathedral, which in spite of its supposed spiritual nature had a number of overtly political propaganda posters adorning its walls and fences advocating support for a “Refugees Welcome” campaign. Leicester Cathedral, however, was much in the news earlier this year when, after an intense lobbying campaign, it became the last resting place for the bones of King Richard III. As all students of medieval history know Richard III illegally usurped the throne from his nephew King Edward V, and then had both him and his brother murdered in the Tower of London. In order to justify their glorification of this most unworthy of all monarchs the Dean and Chapter of Leicester Cathedral now loudly proclaim that the charges against Richard III were “unproven”, without any evidence being offered to justify this preposterous claim. So according to them six centuries of historians have been wrong! Who else had the motive to murder the Princes in the Tower we therefore ask – and who else had the means? To return to the present day, is it any wonder therefore that a church which honours a child-murderer of the past should now seek to act as an apologist for the attempted murder of an entire people and culture?

As historians of the period will again know, Richard III was deposed barely two years after he had usurped the throne from his nephew. When Henry Tudor – who was to become King Henry VII, and who had an equally strong, if not stronger, claim to the crown than Richard III – landed in Wales he only brought a small group of fellow-exiles from France with him, but so strong was the unpopularity of Richard III that he quickly managed to pick up supporters to swell his army along the way, so that his eventual victory at Bosworth became a virtual certainty. Once crowned Henry VII proved a great monarch. He married Elizabeth of York, the younger sister of the murdered Edward V, and thus united the Lancastrian and Yorkist factions. Within a few years all opposition had ceased, the civil war was over and the country grew in prosperity. Henry VII’s popularity was confirmed by the fact that although he had to raise taxes substantially following the excesses of Yorkist rule his popular support barely waivered. By commissioning John Cabot to sail across the Atlantic the first English settlements were established in Newfoundland – thus heralding the start of the British Empire. With his Welsh ancestry he also placed in motion plans to unite Wales and England, which came to fruition under his son Henry VIII with the Act of Union of 1536 – thus forming the initial United Kingdom. Both his son Henry VIII and his granddaughter Elizabeth I proved magnificent monarchs and the power and prestige of England – soon to become an integral part of a united Great Britain - increased exponentially. As Britain – indeed the whole of Europe – confronts a crisis even more threatening than that which England faced under Richard III what is needed now is for another Henry VII to arise. We are confident that sooner or later such a hero will emerge, to save not only Britain but all the nations of Europe from the Islamic hordes.



The Springbok Club staged a most enjoyable and educative trip to the Victoria & Albert Museum in London last month. The main purpose of this trip was to hear a lecture being given about Capt. Linnaeus Tripe, a renowned photographer of India and Burma during the 1850s. As well as being an acclaimed early photographer, the Plymouth-born army officer Linnaeus Tripe also proved to be a true son of the British Empire, and his photographs of India and Burma magnificently captured the spirit of the Raj. Like so many great Imperial pioneers and entrepreneurs of the era, Linnaeus Tripe’s name is now unfortunately largely forgotten, but this lecture and the accompanying exhibition of his superlative photographs vividly brought his achievements back to public attention. After listening to the lecture and viewing the exhibition the Springbok Club party adjourned to the museum cafeteria for light refreshments and convivial conversations.


The Springbok Club is planning to visit a restored Georgian seaman’s house in the east end of London shortly, probably before the end of October. All Springbok Club members and London-based supporters will be informed about the precise details of this event as soon as arrangements have been finalized.


The Springbok Club’s 2015 UDI Day buffet has now been set for the afternoon of Saturday 28th November at a venue in central London, and the guest of honour will be a highly-decorated former member of the Rhodesian Army. More precise details about this important event will of course be included in next month’s SCN, but we ask all Springbok Club members and supporters to diarise the date now.


Unfortunately the planned braai to be held by the Kent Branch of the Springbok Club has had to be postponed yet again, but it is hoped that this will now be held in the Spring of 2016. During December the Springbok Club will be holding its annual Day of the Vow commemorative event, which will hopefully be held at a prestigious central London venue and will feature a prominent South African as guest speaker. The Springbok Club’s 2016 AGM will be held next January.


A copy of the speech given by the current Organiser of the Springbok Club at this year’s “Raising of the Flag” ceremony in Norfolk (as detailed in the September edition of the SCN) can now be accessed on-line at :-



Unfortunately we have still heard no word from either the Chairman or the Secretary of the Swinton Circle regarding details of the organisation’s 2015 AGM (which according to its constitution must be held in either October or November). Needless to say, details about this will be announced in next month’s SCN, provided that arrangements have been notified to us by then.


Since last month’s SCN was written a number of further most interesting and revealing facts have come to light concerning the nature of the uninvited attendees who gate-crashed and disrupted the Swinton Circle’s problematic meeting of 31st July. These revelations include the facts that :-

1) The uninvited individual who identified himself as being a member of the splittist “English Democrats” organization, a certain Steve Uncles, who initiated disruptions by shouting out insulting comments about the Union Flag (which of course always adorns on the top table at Swinton Circle meetings) is evidently not too popular within the “English Democrats” outfit itself, following revelations about a rather novel method that he used to place alleged candidates for this tinpot party on the ballot paper for county council elections :

2) The individual who it was discovered circulated all the unauthorized “invitations” to a string of odious extremist organizations, a certain Jack Buckby, is now regarded as a bit of a rogue element within the LibertyGB organization (whose leader, Paul Weston, the Swinton Circle extended a warm invitation to to address their meeting of 31st July, which alas turned out to be such a disaster) and furthermore has had a very controversial political background himself, as is confirmed by the very unsavoury characters who he is pictured with in the exposĂ© of him which can be found at :

3) The most obnoxious and unwelcome of the gate-crashers, a certain Jeremy “Jez” Bedford-Turner, a rabid anti-Semite and notorious holocaust-denier, was heard whispering that he had only attended “to see the fight” – thus confirming that the disruption of the meeting was both pre-planned and premeditated.

4) Two of the uninvited gate-crashers – including the main trouble-maker who shouted out pro-Nazi slogans – let it be known that they were Muslim converts.

5) Traces of cocaine were found in the upstairs toilet adjacent to the room where the chaotic meeting was held.

The last three of these allegations cannot be verified of course, but by the nature of the disruption which occurred and those who initiated the wrecking campaign almost anything seems possible, and we do not disbelieve the Swinton Circle member and the Swinton Circle supporter who reported these facts. If LibertyGB are serious about their desire to co-operate with the Swinton Circle, as clearly seemed to be the case before 31st July, then we would suggest that they completely distance themselves from their erstwhile trouble-making representative Jack Buckby and from the objectionable “English Democtrats” and the so-called “London Forum” outfit of Jeremy “Jez” Bedford-Turner – and also issue a sincere apology for the severe problems which they (maybe inadvertently) caused on 31st July.

Most readers will undoubtedly recall the distressing and sickening case of Cecil the Lion, a much loved resident of Hwange Game Park in what is today Zimbabwe, who was intentionally murdered by a scumbag American dentist. We have recently received some more detailed information about this heart-breaking incident from the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, which we re-print below :-

“We have just discovered the identity of the killer of Cecil the lion. His details are as follows:

Passport no: 445469954
Address: 11413 Larding Road,
Eden Prairie
MN 55347

“This would suggest that he is American and not Spanish as we previously stated.

“On or about the 6th July 2015, Walter James Palmer was taken to Hwange National Park by professional hunter Theo Bronkhorst. They went hunting at night with a spotlight and they spotted Cecil. They tied a dead animal to their vehicle to lure Cecil out of the park and they scented an area about half a kilometre from the park. Mr Palmer shot Cecil with a bow and arrow but this shot didn't kill him. They tracked him down and found him 40 hours later when they shot him with a gun. They found that he was fitted with a GPS collar because he was being studied by the Hwange Lion Research, funded by Oxford University so they tried to destroy the collar but failed because it was found.

“Cecil was skinned and beheaded. We don't know the whereabouts of the head. Walter Palmer apparently paid US$50,000 for the kill and we assume Theo Bronkhorst received this money. Cecil, who was known all over the world would have earned millions of dollars just from sightseeing. There was apparently no quota or licence for a lion to be killed in this area.

“The saddest part of all is that now that Cecil is dead, the next lion in the hierarchy, Jericho will most likely kill all Cecil's cubs so that he can insert his own bloodline into the females. This is standard procedure for lions.”



As we mentioned in the July 2015 edition of the SCN, the Springbok Club has initiated a campaign advocating that a knighthood should be granted to Willie John McBride, the Ballymena, Ulster, Ireland and British Lions lock forward who captained the 1974 British Lions tour of South Africa – “The Invincibles”. A special FaceBook group has now been created to further this campaign, and it is hoped that all readers will be prepared to add their support to this group – and to encourage as many of their friends and contacts as possible to do likewise.

We have recently been pleasantly surprised to receive a media release from the HNP. The HNP, of course, was the lone standard-bearer on the South African political stage throughout the 1970s and early 1980s opposing the National Party’s sell-out policies, and specifically in fully supporting Rhodesia. The HNP may have had its faults, but their determined and forthright stance during this period must always be admired and never forgotten. We had of course previously believed that with the advent of the “new” South Africa the party had become defunct – so this news that they were still in existence therefore came as a most encouraging surprise to us. The sentiments which they expressed in this media release furthermore seem to be spot-on. The translated version reads as follows :-

“Herstigte Nasionale Party - Media Release
“Black terrorism's attack on Afrikaner history

“Monuments and statues write the proud history of nations. Considering their glorious and proud history in the development of South Africa, the Afrikaners are poor in statues and monuments compared to their European mother countries. Therefore, what we do have is much more important for us as a nation.

“The history of South Africa is the proof of how the Afrikaner tamed and developed South Africa in the 1960s from a desert into a modern First World State. It is now being destroyed piece by piece by an incompetent regime and revolutionary followers who try to change the true history of South Africa so that a lie about who the country belongs to will eventually be believed.

“Before the surrender of political power in 1994 to the ANC by FW de Klerk and the then National Party, the HNP warned about the consequences of political power in the ANC's hands. Afrikaners are now living in a state of hateful racism against them as a people, but also against every White member of the population.

“There is no prospect that the situation can improve. The current government has neither the capacity nor the will to stop the revolutionary state. The state of racist anarchy and terrorism will only worsen.

“The Afrikaner and the White man have no future within the present political system.

“The HNP calls on every White household to further improve their personal security. The HNP has stated to every Afrikaner leader and organization that any attempt to try and find a workable solution within the current political system will not work. The hour has come for African leaders will seriously consider how the freedom loving Afrikaners can find a political refuge outside the current order. We owe it to the heroes whose images are now being broken down, as well as our unborn offspring.

“Louis van der Schyff - Vice Leader

“7 April 2015”



It was with great pleasure that we heard the news that Zac Goldsmith had been selected as the official Conservative Party candidate for next year’s London Mayoral Election. Zac Goldsmith is of course the son of the late and great EuroSceptic activist Sir James Goldsmith who founded the Referendum Party and thus put the case for withdrawal from the EU firmly on the map. He is also a good colleague of that great British patriot Dennis Delderfield, and indeed made a masterful speech at his New Britain Goldsmith Lecture (named after his late father) a couple of years ago. We therefore wish Zac Goldsmith every success in next year’s election, and hope all our readers who live in Greater London will be prepared to give him their support. We know that some of his “climate change” views may not meet with everyone’s approval, and we know also that UKIP supporters may not be prepared to vote against their own candidate, but we would remind them that in the London Mayoral election everyone has two votes – a first and a second preference – so we ask them therefore at least to give him one of their votes. The only conceivable alternative, after all, is the Labour Party candidate – and Labour has seen fit to nominate a Pakistani!



We were greatly perturbed and angered to learn the news that our very good friend and colleague Nicky Lamprecht was recently viciously assaulted at his place of work in Natal. Nicky was a hard-working patriotic activist in Durban during the 1980s, being a keen and dedicated member of both the Conservative Party of South Africa and the Patriotic Forum. He has written describing the savage assault which he suffered as follows :-

“Today at around 12 o’clock 3 armed robbers (Blacks) came into my workshop, two waving 9mm firearms and one with a dagger. They demanded my money, then my safe and keys. They took my wallet with all my money I had just collected in it and my driver’s licences in it. I was totally confused I forgot where my keys were so I got hit twice on my head with the butt of a firearm. Ah, I remembered where my keys were in the van that I spent so much money fixing. They opened my empty safe and asked where all the money was to which I told them they had all of it already. Just then my landlord came to say goodbye to me. He was pulled into the workshop and also robbed. Two of them climbed into my van and reversed, the other closed my workshop door at which time I went for my gun. I opened the door and shot 4 shots at the van – not sure if I hit anyone. I ran after them into the road and emptied the firearm. They smashed a truck, climbed out shooting back and ran away. Well I got my van back, am still alive and again am a witness to God’s protection. Now I must say this, I am very impressed with how fast the Police and ambulance reacted, and believe it or not my driving licence has already been found in a squatter camp.”

We of course wish both Nicky and his landlord well in making full recoveries from this frightening experience – but alas it simply exemplifies the true lawless conditions which exist in the “new” South Africa today. We also hope that this will act as a serious wake-up call to Nicky – and to others in a similar situation - to leave the disintegrating “new” South Africa as soon as possible (both his son and his brother have successfully managed to relocate to civilized countries in Europe). They could do far more effective work for the patriotic cause by relocating himself and joining the South African resistance struggle in exile, rather than making themselves the targets for inevitable similar future attacks by Black criminals.

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.203 – Mr. W.D. “BILL” CHALMERS of Johannesburg.

Bill Chalmers was head of religious broadcasting for the English-language television service of SABC during the 1970s and 1980s, where he compĂ©red their regular Sunday evening religious discussion programme. A man of staunch conservative beliefs, he was not afraid to attack the liberal tendencies which he saw undermining Christian civilization (particularly so-called “liberation theology”), and was often pilloried by the PFP-supporting press for so doing. He was also a subscriber to S.A.Patriot magazine, and we had the pleasure of meeting him briefly in the early 1980s when he spoke at a meeting in Durban, and were highly impressed with the man and his analysis of the problems which were then facing South Africa. It would be very interesting to learn what became of him.



We have recently been forwarded a trailer to a film which seems to highlight the current quasi-genocide campaign taking place against White farmers in the “new” South Africa. We don’t know too much about the film itself, but the trailer certainly looks very interesting. It can be accessed at :-





Eishkom! I really do feel so much for our poor cousins south of the border with these power outages. We were 'down south' recently and it was a literal nightmare. Whenever the power went off, the City of Johannesburg literally came to a standstill!

Possibly one of the worst disturbances is the lack of power at the traffic lights 'aka robots.' Most people are well behaved and go into the 'first come first served' robotic mode but this slows down the traffic incredibly, and it takes absolutely ages to get anywhere. Now we here in Zim do not have that problem because our robots seldom work at any rate, and also our car population is one hundred-thousandth of the size of that of Johannesburg. In addition the shops seem to close down, certainly the shops in the malls do, where there is no God-given lighting. We are almost devoid of malls in Bulawayo, so the shops mostly have natural light. Another drawback is the fact that all the South African transactions are electronic, so if the power goes down there are no hand written invoices like one gets in Zim!

Fortunately our electricity supply commission seldom turns off the 'ZESA' in the CBD. Now Eskom - or 'Eishkom' as it has been nicknamed - has a great app called EskomsePush which pushes out notices to mobile phones, about impending power cuts. Our fellows here in Zimbabwe don't forewarn us - they just 'do it'!! There is a semblance of order, but most of the time our power outages are haphazard, added to which the electricity supply is so antiquated, there are many power outages due to faults.

Now a word of comfort to our Southern cousins - dealing with power outages successfully and graciously does come with time. We are totally over the 'lets play monopoly by candlelight' stage; we are now just totally browbeaten! Those of us lucky enough to afford inverters, resort to games on our mobile phones, and those of us lucky enough to have generators just turn them on and 'deal with it'. I just wish I had a generator manufacturing company in Johannesburg, my goodness I would be wealthy soon.

I have made up my mind that in future I am going to be positive. For example I am going to say 'yay we have ZESA' which is most of the time, rather than 'boo hoo we have no ZESA' - which is only a small part of the time.

Yours etc.,

Maggie Kriel, Bulawayo, “Zimbabwe”.

P.S. Bulawayo gets most of its electricity from South Africa!




Interesting to read about Frikkie Strauss [“Where are they now?” SCN September 2015 – Ed.]. Seems a great oke. Trust he’s no relation to Jaco Strauss of Somerset West. Won’t say too much, but he’s one to avoid!

Many readers are perhaps familiar with the “British Democracy Forum” (sometimes referred to simply as the “Democracy Forum”), a massive on-line discussion forum which contained a whole series of sections on all political parties and aspects of current affairs. On the face of it this was an excellent enterprise, as it allowed freedom of speech on all issues to all sections of opinion in a completely neutral environment. Unfortunately, however, it also allowed for smears and hate-messages to be posted against a variety of targets with seemingly very little regulation. Our movement suffered quite significantly in this regard over a number of years, as several lies and slanders were posted smearing us from a small group of malcontents who were collectively known as “the sickly clique”. Although one particularly libellous posting was removed by the administrator after we complained about it, others alas remained in place in spite of our requests that they be taken down. Recently, however, we have learnt that the whole system has now been closed down. In spite of fully supporting the concept of free speech which this forum ideally stood for, we are afraid that we learnt this news with much pleasure – for in reality it had become a smear-mongers’ playground.
