February 2016 Edition.


February 2016 edition

The fact that attempts by malcontents to have the statue of Cecil John Rhodes removed from the entrance to Oriel College Oxford, and to eliminate other memorials and references to him at Oxford University, have failed is of course reason for great rejoicing. The aspect of this dispute which has not been so pleasing, however, has been the reasons given for opposing these disgraceful attempts.

The University authorities have invariably stated that their refusal to surrender to intimidation on this matter was because it would be a piece of historical vandalism, and that the life and work of Rhodes should be viewed in the context of his time. But the achievements of Cecil John Rhodes should not only be viewed as phenomenal and praise-worthy in the context of the time when he lived, but rather should be regarded as glorious and laudable in the eternal passage of time! The reason why his statue must remain should be clearly stated as being because he was an unarguably great heroic figure who should always be admired.

Cecil John Rhodes was undoubtedly the greatest Briton of the past 200 years – and arguably the greatest Briton ever. It is no wonder therefore that the enemies of the British nation and of our entire Western civilization should wish to remove all memories of this truly great and inspirational man. His achievements therefore should not only be viewed in their historical context, but as a continuous example of British global greatness, a source of good for all of mankind.

The son of an Anglican clergyman from Bishops Stortford, Cecil John Rhodes was therefore born into a very modest environment. In spite of poor health he however proved academically brilliant (hence his lifelong association with Oxford University), and also possessed superb entrepreneurial skills, which enabled him quickly to identify the economic potential of Southern Africa’s mineral wealth, and to exploit it for the benefit of all. But it was his overwhelming patriotism which was the main driving force of his life, and rather than using the wealth which he obtained by his astonishing commercial acumen for his own personal aggrandizement as most successful entrepreneurs would have done, he instead used it to expand the boundries and power of the British Empire. It is said that Alexander the Great had some 70 cities and settlements named after him – but Cecil Rhodes had two entire countries named after him! Has there ever been a man of such greatness and achievement in modern times!

Alas, however, Rhodes made one big mistake at the end of his life, though given the healthy state of Western society at the time of his death he should not be blamed for failing to foreseeing how the world would change for the worse during the following 100 years. This mistake concerned alterations to the beneficiaries named in his Will. In his original Will he left all his vast wealth for the establishment of a secret society to advance the cause and interests of the British Empire – a truly visionary aim which befitted a man of such patriotism and genius. Sadly, however, this planned stipulation was watered down over the years, so that by the time of his death his bequeathal was specifically to endower a number of scholarships at his beloved Oxford University for leading scholars of British kindred from Southern Africa, North America and Australasia. In the 1900s, when British universities acted as powerhouses for producing Imperial administrators and innovators, this was a noble ideal indeed, but alas as the 20th century progressed the universities of the West were slowly but steadily usurped by socialist and multi-cultural academics, so that by the end of the century they had become hotbeds for those who stood for the complete antithesis of Rhodes’ ideals. As a result therefore we have recently witnessed the obscenity of some lesser-breeds being allowed to benefit from the scholarships which Rhodes had intended only for his own kith and kin. Even worse moreover, it has been one particular negro “Rhodes scholar” selected by the “new” South African authorities who has hypocritically initiated the attempts to have the statue of his own benefactor removed!

Quite clearly as we advance into another century a new sea-change in Western society is urgently needed – and to achieve this what is clearly needed is for a second Cecil John Rhodes to emerge. We are confident that such a man or woman will eventually come to prominence, and indeed we believe that he or she may already be alive today. When they do, however, it will be essential that they stay true to the aims of Rhodes’ first Will and make sure that their inheritance remains in the hands of those who fully and genuinely share the same beliefs, and not to let control pass to transient and contrary leaders of academia.

[ The Springbok Club aims to stage a visit to pay their respects at Rhodes’ statue in Oxford later this year, and it is also believed that a speech about his life and inspirational achievements will feature in this year’s “Raising of the Flag” ceremony.]



The 2016 AGM of the Springbok Club was held earlier this month, at which the current Executive Committee was re-elected in full. After the business side of affairs was completed Mr.Gary Vincent gave a most fascinating and captivating talk about the Battle of Isandhlwana during the Anglo-Zulu War, which he illustrated with both models and a PowerPoint presentation. All those members and supporters of the Springbok Club who did not attend therefore certainly missed a treat! In his talk Mr.Vincent emphasized the bravery displayed by Lt.Col. Henry Curling during this battle, an unfortunately mostly forgotten hero of the British Empire. [The Kent Branch of the Springbok Club now intends to stage a trip to the grave of Lt.Col. Henry Curling, which is in Ramsgate, to pay their respects in the near future.]


On Saturday 27th February the Springbok Club will be staging a trip to the “Artist and Empire” Exhibition at the Tate Britain Gallery in Millbank. Assemble between 13.45 hrs and 14.00 hrs in the foyer of the Gallery (enter via the west-side Atterbury Street entrance). There will be a small admission charge of approximately £14.00 (depending upon status) to visit this exhibition.


On Sunday 27th March the Springbok Club will be organizing a trip to see the University Boat races. Arrangements to view the races from an excellent vantage point on the River Thames are currently being finalised, and full details will be given in next month’s SCN. In April the Springbok Club will be staging a special meeting in order to celebrate van Riebeeck’s Day, at which it is hoped to welcome a leading member of a fraternal expatriate organization as guest speaker.



Although the Swinton Circle is currently in a dormant state until the organization can be re-constituted, hopefully later this year, it was contacted by the PEGIDA UK movement a few weeks ago and asked to support their “Silent Walk” in Birmingham on February 6th. In view of the fact that the Swinton Circle has always supported unity among all genuine patriotic organizations it was therefore most pleased to circulate all its database of members and supporters with information about this event, and indeed it is believed that a number of them did actually attend. Interestingly we have noted that the leader of PEGIDA UK is now quoted as being Mr. Paul Weston, who was previously Chairman of the “LibertyGB” organization. Mr.Weston was of course the Swinton Circle’s planned guest speaker at the disastrous meeting of 31st July, which was invaded and disrupted by a motley group of neo-fascists, Islamo-fascists and splittists. One of our supporters who was at this chaotic meeting but who sat at the front and was therefore able to listen to Mr.Weston’s address without interruption, has recently told us that he made an exceptionally good speech. If he has now cut all links with the apparently “LibertyGB”-linked trouble-makers who wrecked the notorious meeting of 31st July then the re-established Swinton Circle would certainly like to invite him to address the organization again – but next time with no disruptions so that everyone in attendance can hear what he has to say!



We have recently received the following report from the ZCTF, which gives some most disturbing news about the killer of Cecil the Lion :-


“It is with great regret that we announce that the Zimbabwean authorities have decided not to prosecute Walter Palmer for killing Cecil the lion. According to them, all Palmer's paper work and documents were in order so he didn't break any laws. We don't agree with this at all and we intend to try other avenues to have him prosecuted.


“The rate at which elephants are being killed in Zimbabwe is truly disturbing. Last week 14 were killed - 3 in Matusadona and 11 in Hwange National Park. 16 were found dead in Lupande and 10 in Chakabvi in Nyamatela. Many of these elephants have been poisoned with cyanide. 14 tusks have been recovered but the other tusks were taken by the poachers. The problem with the cyanide poisoning is that other animals are dying as well. 2 vultures were found poisoned after eating the carcass of one of the elephants and an eland was found snared. A packet containing 1 kilogram of cyanide was also found by the authorities. 36 carcasses were found near Sinamatella in Hwange National Park in the Dzivanini area. This totals 76 elephants killed in the past 2 weeks.


“A huge elephant with tusks weighing 122 pounds was killed in Gonarezhou by a German hunter. We suspect this elephant may have come from Kruger Park. His tusks were so big that they dragged along the ground when he was walking.

“The most disappointing thing is that when a local Zimbabwean kills an animal for food for his family, he is sentenced to between 5 and 15 years in prison but when a wealthy foreign hunter comes in and shoots an animal, he gets away with it. What message are we giving the people?”

A supporter has recently written to us saying how much he admires the interest and backing being displayed towards the England Rugby team by members of the Royal Family – particularly Prince Harry. Although we semi-agree with these sentiments, it should always be remembered that the Royal Family represents the whole of the United Kingdom, and indeed all of the core Commonwealth countries also. It is surely unwise therefore for prominent members of the Royal Family to give overt support to just one component part of the realms which they represent. Yet another reason we therefore believe why a united British Lions-style team should always compete in international competitions – and not only in Rugby!



We have recently received the following circular message from Philip Benwell, the National Chairman of the Australian Monarchist League, in which he describes how in spite of the regrettable ousting of Tony Abbott as Australian Prime Minister by the wretched Malcolm Turnbull, the AML is as a result re-doubling its efforts to counteract the cancer of Republicanism. We certainly encourage all our Australian supporters to give their full backing to the work of the AML :-

“The events of the past few months, firstly with the election of the media celebrity Peter FitzSimons, as head of the Australian Republican Movement and then with the ousting of the monarchist Tony Abbott and his replacement by the former head of the Republican Movement, Malcolm Turnbull, has meant that the Australian Monarchist League must also increase its activities so as to counter attempts to make us into a republic. We expect that this will begin by initially dumbing down all knowledge of our system of constitutional monarchy and then by moving towards a plebiscite after the 2016 election, whoever may be PrimeMinister.

”Our new website will soon be online and combined with our social media arms will be one of our major stratagems both in opposing republicanism and in promoting our safe and secure system of constitutional monarchy in Australia. Our current media website:, which has details of our current media spokespersons, will be integrated into our new website.

”The Australian Monarchist League will be conducting intensive training sessions on dealing with the media in October and November. These sessions will take place on a Saturday all day in Sydney. However, we will also be arranging evening sessions in certain cases.

”There is no obligation either way and the sessions will give candidates an opportunity to see what is involved and will give our training staff an opportunity to get to know those who attend.

”Should anyone wish to make application to be involved, please do so to: giving your name, age or age group and contact details and we will get back to you.

”Applicants must be financial members of the Australian Monarchist League. If you are serious about applying and are not yet a member, you can ascertain membership details at:”


A supporter still based in the “new” South Africa has recently sent us the following item relating to predictions which she made at the time of the release of the terrorist leader Mandela. It is remarkable how totally accurate her predictions have turned out to be! :-

“Herewith something I wrote in February 1990 just after Mandela was unbanned/released. Being prescient has its ups and downs and being ultimately right doesn’t mean you win. Pik Botha kept this clipping and gave it to Theresa Papenfus and she put it in a book which she wrote about him. I wonder why he kept the clipping?

“Thanks for your query regarding my reference to you in the biography of Pik Botha. In the chapter “Paper Jets” in Pik Botha and his times (p. 645) I quoted from your letter published in The Citizen of 6 February 1990: The paragraph reads:-

“In the diverse political camps these announcements were received variously with delight, suspicion or shock. The wife of [a leading] ultra-conservative, laid this turnabout by the conservative de Klerk at the door of Pik Botha, ‘that perennial eminence grise of government policy making’.South Africans, she wrote, could expect the following of the new dispensation: ‘Their children’s school curricula will be changed, their municipalities will come under control of the Third World; there will be no such thing as White residential areas; they will be ordered to employ Blacks in their businesses even if they have ample staff; they will be taxed into total penury to accommodate the fastest growing birth-rate in the world, they will watch Third World television, see their economy collapse and see their community life destroyed’.”

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.

Recent editions of the SCN have been returned to us from both Mr. Wayne Barr and from Mnr. J.Hartzenberg as the latest e-mail addresses which we have for them are evidently no longer operative. Wayne Barr first contacted us because he wished to trace an old colleague from Rhodesia, and we believe that J.Hartzenberg is the nephew of Dr.Ferdi Hartzenberg, the former Leader of the Conservative Party of South Africa. If anyone could let us know their new e-mail addresses we would be most grateful.



As mentioned earlier, the Swinton Circle was recently contacted by the PEGIDA UK movement and asked to support their “Silent Walk” in Birmingham on 6th February, an event opposing the Islamization of Europe which we fully supported and which received considerable media publicity. PEGIDA UK’s estimable web-site can be accessed at :-





Cecil Rhodes was Prime Minister of the Cape, not of South Africa as erroneously stated in certain section of the media. The Union of South Africa was only founded some years after his death. He was also a great man, one of my personal heroes, and it was a tragedy that he died so young. It would have been great to see him Prime Minister of Great Britain, co-operating with the great Theodore Roosevelt in an alliance that would have changed the world entirely for the better.

Bob Young’s letter “Inside the Swinton Circle” [SCN, January 2016] was spot-on. I understand that the Swinton Circle’s former Chairman/Treasurer Robin Willow disappeared with all the organisation’s funds. Has he re-surfaced yet, and has he returned the money?

When we were still based in South Africa itself and were publishing the original S.A.Patriot we were contacted by a mysterious character named Jim Saleam from Australia who professed full support for our aims and objectives and claimed to be involved in an organization with similar patriotic ideals called Australian National Action. To be candidly honest we were always very puzzled by Mr.Saleam’s strange surname, but presumed that it was southern European in origin, so as he and his organisation were evidently very much on our own political wavelength, and indeed as he asserted firm support for the White South African cause which we were fighting for, we therefore accepted his bona fides and started to work together and to exchange publications.

Contact with Saleam and his ANA suddenly ceased during the late 1980s however, and at the time we couldn't understand why. The next we heard of Saleam's name was well over 10 years later in the early days of the Internet, by which time we had re-established operations in the UK as the Springbok Club. We appointed a supporter from NSW as our Australian co-ordinator circa. 2000, but having sent him a full list of all our Australian contacts dating back to our South African days, this Australian supporter told us that he was shocked and concerned to see Jim Saleam's name appearing on this list - though without explaining why!

A couple of years later, however, Saleam himself made e-mail contact with us, and despite the previous worrying reaction which we'd received from our would-be Australian co-ordinator we expressed great pleasure in re-making contact with him after so many years, and placed his e-mail address on our SCN circulation list. We were dumbfounded, however, to receive a critical response from him to one edition of our SCN shortly after this, when he attacked us for siding with our own Western forces during the War against Terror in Iraq - but bizarrely ended this message by sending his best wishes to all “White South African exiles”! How anyone could support terrorists from the Middle East attacking White nations in one breath and then to express support for Whites in another part of the world facing similar attacks from the international terrorist brotherhood in the next breath simply defies belief! Mixed up and confused seemed to be an under-statement! We then received another most strange e-mail from him in which he asked us what we knew about a whole “alphabet-soup listing” of alleged UK political organizations. One of these set of initials we knew fairly well, another was a neo-Nazi outfit which we wouldn't touch with a bargepole, but the rest were completely unknown to us. Quite clearly therefore he had simply made up all these other set of initials, or else they were - literally - just "two men and a dog" fruitcake organisations! Although we wrote back to Saleam politely telling his what we knew (or more accurately didn't know!) about these alleged organisations, we informed him unambiguously that as he apparently supported the Islamic threat posed to the West whereas we as White patriots were of course firmly opposed to this insidious danger, it was probably best if all contact between us should cease - and indeed we've had no further contact with him ever since!

A few weeks ago, however, we were contacted by another Australian supporter who has managed to answer a lot of unanswered questions concerning the sinister Mr.Saleam. In an article which he sent us disturbingly entitled: “Nazi Bunker Exposed - Dr.[sic] Jim Saleam salutes Colonel Gaddafi” (which came complete with a photo apparently of Mr.Saleam wearing a swastika arm-band!). It reads :-

”In a ‘world exclusive’ Australia First Party leader Dr.[sic] Jim Saleam is busted in a Nazi bunker with fellow Australia First members saluting terrorist Colonel Gaddafi. The revealing video proves beyond a doubt that Jim Saleam allegiance still lies with the failed Islamo-Nazi ideology, despite his untruths saying otherwise.

”The video footage was apparently bought for a six-pack of imported beer from a disgruntled former member of Australia First. It seems there isn’t too much loyalty among the arm raising comrades of Jim’s bunker. The video reveals the group’s shindig celebrating the life of Colonel Gaddafi. Among some nationalist circles Colonel Gaddafi is seen as a Libyan nationalist who fought for his people and nation but Colonel Gaddafi lost all credibility when he funded the Palestinian terrorists who were responsible for the bombing of Pam Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988, which resulted in the murder of 270 innocent people.

”In the video Australia First members give speeches praising Colonel Gaddafi for funding Marxist, Fascist and Palestinian terrorist groups. One of the speakers talks about the ‘situation’ saying ‘Since I’m in a pro-Axis milieu’ as evidence of the Nazi flags hanging in the background, meaning the party-goers are bona fide Nazis. Another member yells out, ‘Kill the Jews’. The video starts and ends with Australia First members saying ‘Seig Heil’ and in the closing seconds of the video, one member praises Adolf Hitler for having ‘balls’.

”Normally, we would not stoop to such lows in revealing the darker side of Saleam’s weird and zany world but we believe it is in the interest of the patriotic movement and general public to know the truth about Jim’s allegiance to a struggle that doesn’t belong to us. Over the years, the remnants of Adolf’s fan club have caused tremendous damage to the patriotic movement. Jim has also maintained a dedicated and nasty campaign against Party for Freedom for years writing extensively on Party for Freedom sprouting malicious lies and jealous on-line rants.

”For many decades Jim Saleam has been a pimple on the backside of nationalism due to his dedicated and nasty campaigns against Patriots and Nationalists alike, so it is indeed refreshing to see the whacky wheels turn and reveal the truth about the enigma of Jim. More recently, Jim has been referred to as the ‘father of halal nationalism’ due to his alleged connections and admiration of Islamic groups.

”During Jim’s teenage years in the 1970s, he was a member of the National Socialist Party of Australia. Jim was also photographed wearing a ‘swastika’ armband posing in front of a war memorial with other ANSP members during a party rally.

”In 1982, Jim Saleam co-founded National Action. The party was well known for its violent street activism and was a regular in the print and television media. National Action eventually imploded due to Saleam’s criminal actions, which included property offences and fraud in 1984 and also for his role in organizing a shotgun attack in 1989 on Eddie Funde, which was carried out by two National Action members. In 1991, Saleam was sentenced to 3 years gaol for his role in orgainising the attack alleging it was a Police set-up. He also served time in gaol for the property offences and fraud.

”Jim Saleam formed a branch of the Australia First Party in Sydney in 2002. Jim was the secretary of the newly established branch, however he moved quickly to consolidate his base further after the party was deregistered. Jim became President, and eventually gained enough members to re-registered the Australia First Party. More recently, the Australian Electoral Commission deregistered the Australia First Party in early 2015.

”The patriotic movement in Australia has grown significantly over the past few years due to many factors including the maturity of new patriotic leaders and activists entering the political arena. Fortunately, Nazi relics like Jim Saleam have been rejected and exchanged for a more sustainable and appealing Australian nationalism
that is relevant to today’s struggle against the corrupt political establishment.”

So there we have it then. Mr.Saleam wasn’t a fellow White patriot as he claimed when he first made contact with us during the 1980s – but rather was a closet neo-Nazi nutter, or perhaps more accurately an Islamo-fascist scumbag of the type which we described in December 2015 Edition of the SCN! (Maybe this explains his rather strange surname, which perhaps is Arabic in origin?). Furthermore we now know why contact with him suddenly ceased during the late 1980s – he had been arrested and was awaiting trial for fraud and attempted murder! How on earth do we ever come into contact with such weird, deranged and indeed evil cranks such as Mr.Saleam?
