December 2015 Edition.


December 2015 edition

The recent diabolical multi-terrorist attack in Paris must surely have sickened and outraged all decent human beings around the world. It must also have shown all but the most myopic that a war is currently being waged in the name of the Mohammedan religion against all who do not agree with their theology – after all the similar attack in Bombay during 2008 was not aimed at Western culture. Sadly and predictably, however, the parrot-cry has once again been squawked out by liberal elements claiming that the terrorists only comprised a small minority of “Jihadists” and were not representative of Muslims as a whole. With every further atrocity which has occurred since 9/11 (and indeed before that) this argument becomes more and more threadbare.

More than for any other reason the Islamic terrorists have been emboldened by the perceived weakness of the West, and specifically by the anti-War fifth-columnists who sickeningly seem to command influence way beyond their numbers. All this probably began when the First Gulf War in 1991 wasn’t finished to its proper conclusion by continuing the military offensive to Baghdad itself after the liberation of Kuwait, and thereby failing to eliminate the evil Ba’athist regime of Saddam Hussein before they could engineer and bankroll the rise of al-Qa’eda and the Taliban. The Second Gulf War was furthermore started far too late giving the Ba’athists of Iraq time to move a considerable amount of their WMD material to their fellow-Ba’athists in Syria, and of course even after Baghdad finally fell many of the leading Ba’athist officials and military leaders were allowed to escape, so that they could subsequently co-ordinate the establishment of ISIS/ISIL.

But, as we imply, the most despicable enemy of all which is good is not the actual Islamic terrorists themselves, but rather their vile appeasing fellow-travellers of the anti-War movement. As has been accurately observed, the “Stop the War Coalition” is in reality a “Let’s help the other side to win Coalition”. The authorities are of course seriously at fault in allowing such a subversive organization to flourish. After all at the start of WWII one of the first actions which the British authorities took was to intern all the leading Mosleyites, and during an earlier evil terrorist onslaught SF/IRA was effectively banned for many years.

The most worrying manifestation of the success of these vile fifth-columnists has of course been the election of the unspeakable Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the British Labour Party. The fact that one of Britain’s two main political parties is now led by such a detestable creature is a terrible stain on the name and the reputation of the British nation. Thankfully, however, he does not enjoy the support of all his party, as there has proved to be widespread resistance to his poisonous leadership by ordinary decent Labour Party members and MPs alike. Perhaps the most surprising of those who have been brave enough to stand up to the intimidation of the “Stop the War” subversives has been Hillary Benn. His speech during the Parliamentary debate on (albeit far too limited) British military intervention to destroy the evil ISIS/ISIL Islamo-fascists was undoubtedly the greatest Parliamentary speech of recent times. Our movement may not have agreed with several of the points which Mr. Benn made during his inspiring speech, particularly his commitment to socialism and internationalism, but notwithstanding fundamental disagreements about economic and social policies we even so must salute his courage in so forthrightly opposing the demonic common enemy threatening all of mankind – as indeed we must salute all those 66 brave Labour MPs who risked personal threats in order to side with the forces of good.

The Prime Minister was of course quite correct to describe those opposing military action against the ISIS/ISIL evil as “Terrorist sympathisers” – indeed we would go further and say that many of them are clearly pro-terrorist! Perhaps nothing more can be expected from certain extreme-left elements in the Labour Party or from the loathsome SNP (accurately termed the “Scottish Ba’athist Party” during the Second Gulf War), but it would have been reasonable to expect that no genuine Conservative Party representative would ever dream of sucking up to the ISIS/ISIL terrorists, particularly so soon after the Paris atrocities – but alas this was not the case. Seven alleged Conservative MPs voted against taking military action to oppose the Islamo-fascist filth, namely: John Baron (Basildon & Billericay), David Davis (Haltemprice & Howden), Philip Hollobone (Kettering), Julian Lewis (New Forest East), Stephen McPartland (Stevenage), Andrew Tyrie (Chichester) and Gordon Henderson (Sittingbourne & Sheppey). Their infamous names should be noted and remembered.

But all is not gloom. The Paris attacks seem to have galvanised opposition to Islamic terrorism around the world. The Front Nationale has made significant electoral advances in France, Donald J. Trump’s campaign for the GOP Presidential nomination in the United States now seems to be unstoppable, and PEGIDA is gaining increasing support not only in Germany but throughout Europe. The momentum is now clearly with those Western resistance forces who are directly opposing both the ISIS/ISIL terrorists and their “Stop the War” fellow-travellers. Our solidarity is fully with the French people after enduring such horrific terrorist atrocities. Citizens – to the barricades!



The Springbok Club celebrated UDI Day last month with a most enjoyable gathering and buffet in central London. Although the numbers in attendance were somewhat disappointing (due partly to delays in finalizing arrangements and partly, we believe, because of the heightened security situation in all Western capitals at the time), those who did attend enjoyed a really splendid occasion. Talks were given by two leading Springbok Club officials, one about the life and career of the Hon.Ian Douglas Smith and the other about the inspirational effect which the declaration of UDI had among patriots in the UK at the time. A truly sumptuous array of buffet snacks were laid on which were eagerly consumed by all those in attendance, and informal and fruitful discussions took place about proposed activities to be conducted by the organization during 2016.


As it has alas proved impossible for the Springbok Club to book any adequate function room during the busy month of December for their annual Day of the Vow commemoration, the Kent Branch of the organization has stepped into the breach and will be organizing a dinner in the Canterbury area on Saturday 19th December. All those wishing to join this gathering should e-mail: or ‘phone: 07711188430 for more precise details. Orders and payment for food will simply be made individually on the day, and after the meal a short talk will be given about the historical significance of the Day of the Vow by a leading expatriate South African.


The Springbok Club’s 2016 AGM will be held next January. Following the business side of affairs the organization will be welcoming an interesting guest speaker who will give a key-note talk about their experiences of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. The Springbok Club’s planned itinerary of events for 2016 will also be discussed and finalized at this meeting.



Following the collapse of the Swinton Circle in its original form, those Committee members who have remained loyal to the organization have now been approached by leaders of two other patriotic organizations with a view to future co-operation and/or mergers. Formal discussions will be held between the leaderships of all three bodies during the Spring, and needless to say the results of these talks will be announced in future editions of the SCN.



We have recently received the following most well-argued article from the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, which is particularly relevant in view of the recent horrifying killing of Cecil the Lion. It reads as follows :-

“We often hear of trophy hunters claiming to be conservationists and we find this difficult to understand. If this is the case, then there are 2 types of "conservation".


“There is the breeding of wild animals for hunting. This industry is supported by the hunting fraternity and animal breeders. The animals are bred en masse for the purpose of being inhumanely shot or hunted. Once these animals are captured, they can never be released back into the wild. In the case of lions, they are captured when they are cubs and at first, are sometimes used for customers to ‘walk with the lions’. Once they get too big for this, they are moved to another enclosure where they are offered to hunters to be shot. They are drugged and the hunter then shoots the lion. This is not really hunting because the lion doesn't have a chance to escape. Some of them are used in canned hunting as well.

“Landowners have gone into biodiversity, utilizing the land which was previously used for growing crops, for breeding these wild animals. They claim to have the right to give life to these animals by breeding them but in the end, they are shot with a rifle or a bow and arrow. To breed these animals and ‘play God’ by giving life and then taking life away is cruel and inhumane especially in the case of the cat family, elephants and rhino. They are kept in cages and have no freedom. These so-called conservationists claim this industry is sustainable but it only benefits the land owners and trophy hunters, most of whom are millionaires.

“They claim that once the animal has passed its breeding age, it's no good and should be shot. This is the wrong conception. Humans are over-populating the world but when they are old, do we shoot them or do we look after them? Life is like a big chain and each species is like a link in the chain. Each link has a purpose and a job to do. When you start killing the animals, the chain gets shorter and shorter and this interferes with the circle of life.


“Our National Parks is where the real conservation should be taking place. The animals should be free to roam and tourists can come and see them and photograph them. Hunting should be banned altogether. We, as humans, rely on some of the animals for medicines etc. The elephant is a mobile manure factory, helping to germinate seeds, some of which are used to make medicines. Every species has an important part to play and this is why hunting should be banned.

“The local people who live around the wildlife areas should be stakeholders in the industry. They should be given a percentage of the money earned from tourism in exchange for taking care of the animals. At the moment, these people don't get anything. We should be able to co-exist with the wildlife without the cruelty and inhumanity.

“Animals can take care of themselves as they always have. When there are too many of one species, the predators kill them for food. This is the way it should be. They don't need our help to keep their numbers down.

“We have heard that some Americans teach their children to hunt as young as seven years old. This is a horrifying concept. When the child is annoyed at school, they could possibly shoot someone because they have been brought up that way. We appeal to children all over the world to please write to their governments to ask them to stop hunting. We have received some letters from children and these are very important to us.

“Money talks - guilty walks.”

The British Davis Cup team must be congratulated upon winning the 2015 tournament – the first time that Britain has triumphed in 79 years! The Murray brothers must be congratulated particularly in this regard of course, and their eager Union Flag-adorned celebrations clearly gave the lie to the claims by the odious SNP that they somehow supported Scottish “independence”!

Full congratulations must also of course be extended to the Belgium team who “punched far above their weight” (just as Belgium did during the great age of European global Imperialism!) in reaching the final, and providing such defiant opposition therein.

Both nations have something in common however, namely that they are both subjected to attempts to split and destroy their countries by the German-dominated EU. In this context it was therefore most encouraging to see the overwhelming displays of both the Union Flag and the Belgium Flag among both sets of supporters, with hardly the sight of any regional flags (not that we have any objections to regional flags in the right contexts!) anywhere to be seen! Long live a united Britain – Long live a united Belgium!

[ It should never be forgotten of course that the first nation to win the Davis Cup outside the “big four” was South Africa in 1974 – and this of course was still during the days of civilized rule in the country! ]



A most worrying controversy has recently erupted concerning this year’s BBC “Sports Personality of the Year” competition, specifically concerning the nomination of the Heavyweight Boxer Tyson Fury for the award.

Fury recently won the Heavyweight Championship of the World by defeating the Ukrainian Vladimir Klitschko, thus becoming the first genuine British Heavyweight Champion of the World since Bob Fitzsimmonds. One would have thought that this would have been a reason for universal celebration by all British sports fans – but alas not all people were evidently happy with his achievement. The reason that Fury has attracted so much sinister opposition has nothing to do with his sporting prowess however, but rather because he has voiced forthright opposition to homosexuality, paedophilia and abortion on demand. Now of course most moral and decent people of all races and religions will have supported Fury fully in his condemnation of these perversions and evils, but to the liberal “politically correct brigade” this has proved anathema! The world champion long-jumper Greg Rutherford initially announced that he was going to withdraw from the competition, apparently because of pressure from certain members of his family, but when he subsequently showed great bravery by reversing his original unfortunate decision he also attracted the odium of the “politically correct brigade”, and so must be congratulated upon his courage in this regard.

We know that there are several other contestants highly deserving of this award, most notably Lizzie Armistead, Chris Froome, Andy Murray and Adam Peaty – as well as Greg Rutherford himself. But there is an important principle of freedom of speech at issue here. We therefore urge everyone to vote for Tyson Fury.

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.205 – Cllr. Lew Phillips of Durban

Lew Phillips was a long-serving and highly regarded Durban City Councillor who represented the Montclair/Woodlands Ward of the City. He also served as an NRP Natal Provincial Councillor for a while. Being true to the patriotic principle’s of Jan Smuts’ United Party by joining the NRP re-alignment after so many of the Party had left to join the ultra-leftist Progs, he consequently became something of a hate-figure for the PFP-supporting faction on Durban City Council – a situation which was intensified by his forthright opposition to integrated beaches and other multi-racial proposals. He was an early supporter of S.A.Patriot magazine, and indeed we gave him much favourable publicity in the first few editions of the publication. He however dumbfounded and disappointed his supporter-base greatly by inexplicably coming out in favour of P.W.Botha’s sellout policies at the time of the 1983 Constitutional Referendum, and as a result direct contact with him then ceased. He continued his fierce opposition to Prog attempts to push ahead with their unauthorized integration ideas however, and for this he continued to be admired. As he was not a young man when we knew him during the early 1980s we therefore doubt very much whether he is still alive, but even so it would be interesting to learn what happened to him and to his delightful and totally loyal wife.



With the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire Primary now only weeks away, patriots around the Western world have become increasingly electrified by the growing support being shown for the nomination of Donald J. Trump as the GOP Presidential candidate. Those who wish to learn more about his campaign and what he stands for should have a look at his web-site, which can be found at :-



TEST CASE – Part 2


I wrote an unpublished letter to the Daily Telegraph pointing out that, while people like Clive Rice’s sporting careers were ruined by the boycott, the likes of Mandela were able to resume their political careers after it. Didn't this prove the boycott to have been unfair? And, whatever one's views on apartheid in sport or anywhere else, the documentary on Basil D'Oliveira some years ago did point out that he'd played for South Africa's non-White eleven. They were, I believe, perfectly free to play internationals against anyone willing to play them - hardly their fault that other countries like the West Indies weren't.

I was recently severely threatened by a man, he vowed that he was going to break every bone in my body (this amounts to a death threat in my mind). I was in the company of witnesses who were prepared to validate the occurrence.

I reported the incident to my Police station and a docket was opened and I was told that the Investigating Officer would contact myself and my witnesses. After several weeks I approached the Officer in Command of the Investigating Officer informing her that no-one from her division had come back to me on this. A while after this I was in the company of friends at a scenic lookout point at the edge of a gorge where I noticed this same man who had threatened that he was going to kill me, sitting in a parked vehicle. He had moved to this area prior to the first time he threatened my life. I rarely visit this area as it is far from my suburb, We just happened to end up at the gorge on that day. As the man spotted myself and my friends alighting from my vehicle he said to me that he should just push me over the edge of the cliff and into the gorge, it sent shivers down my spine. I reported back to the Police station the next day and told the Investigating Officer about my encounter of the previous day and told her that I was again threatened in the presence of witnesses.

Nothing has come of my complaint to the South African Police, I have not as much as received any indication as to whether my complaint will eventually dealt with. All this has happened months ago.

Most South African citizens are in agreement; we have zero faith in the South African Police or the justice system. We live in fear and see lawlessness all around us.
God help South Africa, we do not want to be wiped out!

M.H.P., Pinetown, Natal, South Africa.




Thank you for publishing my last letter [September 2015 SCN – Ed.]. It was interesting to read the letter from “A.G.” about Mr. Robin Willow in the same issue, and also to learn more details about this man in the next issue [actually the November 2015 SCN – Ed.]. Why was Mr. Willow ever allowed to hold two leading positions in the Swinton Circle simultaneously, Chairman and Treasurer, when he was clearly incapable of performing either of them properly? I’ve done a bit more investigation into him and have discovered that he’s married to a Chinawoman, and have also found a number of other worrying factors about him which I feel it best not to mention. The fact that he has now apparently disappeared without accounting for all the Swinton Circle’s funds is a matter for great concern. Surely this should be a Police matter?

Yours etc.,

George Freeman, London, U.K.



Several readers have expressed surprise at the fact that we reported that two of the gate-crashers who invaded the disastrous Swinton Circle meeting of 31st July were not only neo-fascists, but also revealed themselves as being Muslim converts – including the worst disrupter of this meeting. But is it so strange that neo-fascists should also be Mohammedans?

In spite of the popular conception that the German Nazis were total racialists, their racism in reality consisted of little more than a paranoid and irrational hatred of the Jewish people, the Slavs and the Gypsies. They established a powerful battalion of the Waffen-SS among the Muslim population of Bosnia-Herzegovina (as well as one among Hindu Indian nationalists incidentally!) and also enjoyed a close working relationship with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. Indeed the cry of *Hitler in this world and Allah in the next” was a popular clarion call among Nazi sympathisers in the Middle East.

More recently, however, the overtly neo-fascist “British National Party” – although it claimed to be patriotic – failed to support Britain and the rest of the West against Islamic expansionism in both Gulf Wars and in the War against Terror as a whole. The so-called “BNP” now appears to be defunct however, and we do not doubt that the main cause of their demise was their totally hypocritical stance whereby they claimed to be pro-British yet at the same time opposed their own country in wars against the insidious Islamic threat!

Hillary Benn, whatever his other faults, gave a masterful Parliamentary speech during the debate on Air Strikes in Syria against the ISIS/ISIL terrorists, in which he clearly asserted that these Islamic terrorists were fascists, and the heirs of the evil German Nazis who Britons and other Commonwealth citizens of all political persuasions fought so bravely against during WWII. We may believe that Mr. Benn is terribly wrong on many political issues, but history and indisputable facts confirm that he is totally correct with this comparison.

This brings us back to the subject of the invasion and disruption of the notorious Swinton Circle meeting of 31st July by a group of uninvited trouble-makers. It has now been revealed that these wreckers were more than just neo-fascists as we first believed, but contained at least two individuals who were clearly ISLAMO-FASCISTS! History, both dating back to the German Nazi era and more recently, has clearly demonstrated the symbiosis between Nazism and Islam, so rather than being unexpected as received wisdom would have us believe, this connection is in actual fact simply the confirmation of reality.

We would still be very keen to learn the names of those uninvited gate-crashers who invaded the meeting in question – particularly the name of the main black-shirted disrupter. If anyone can help in this regard we would be most grateful, and can assure everyone that all information will be treated with the utmost confidence.
