February 2017 Edition.


February 2017 edition

Following all the fantastic victories for patriotic forces throughout the West during the magic year of 2016, many believed that such triumphs simply wouldn’t last, and that the world would revert to the “political correctness” ascendancy which seemed to prevail for the previous 25 years. The first few weeks of 2017 have shown that this most certainly hasn’t happened however, and indeed that the direction of 2016 is continuing!

The chattering classes of course predicted that President Donald J. Trump simply wouldn’t be up to the job, and even that he would resign the presidency very soon after being inaugurated – but his defiant inauguration speech showed clearly that he is a man with an ongoing mission. Furthermore he has quickly been able to adopt a presidential air and demeanour – something of course which was notably absent during the previous eight years. He has also begun his presidency with a flurry of activity in order to fulfill his campaign promises – something which is quite unusual for a politician of any political persuasion!

The visit to the United States to meet President Trump by British Prime Minister Theresa May also proved a breath of fresh air. Theresa May had already pleasantly surprised many people by being forthright in her desire to procure Britain’s exit from the European Union, in spite of the fact that she herself campaigned (albeit half-heartedly) for a “Remain” vote in last year’s EU Referendum. Her trip to Washington, during which she quickly managed to establish a friendly rapport with President Trump and re-establish the Special Relationship after a hiatus of eight years, sent shockwaves through the German-dominated EU and “third world” rogue states alike. Although back at Westminster the Speaker of the House of Commons, the flea John Bercow, made some highly inappropriate and damaging comments about the planned State Visit of President Trump to the UK, the manner in which widescale condemnation of his unacceptable statement was so quickly expressed from so many quarters, with a motion of no confidence in the flea being signed by over 150 Conservative and other MPs, again shows clearly the direction in which post-2016 the wind is now blowing.

Theresa May has also delightedly the majority of British people by a number of measures reversing some of the worst failings of he previous “politically correct” Cameron Administration, most notably by greatly reducing the number of so-called “refugee” migrants being allowed into the UK, and perhaps more significantly by abolishing the evil “Iraq Historic Allegations Team” (IHAT), which sought to victimize British troops for unfounded alleged “crimes” enacted during the War against Terror in Iraq. Even more encouraging is the fact that the main opposition Labour Party under the leadership of the neanderthal ultra-leftist Jeremy Corbyn now seems to be spiraling towards irrelevance, with two of its more intelligent MPs already having resigned under Corbyn’s dismal leadership, and with all predictions showing that Labour will lose both resulting by-elections – most significantly in Stoke-on-Trent Central where the resurgent UKIP not only seems set to win the seat, but also thereby to replace Labour as the main opposition party throughout huge swathes of the county.

But it’s in continental Europe where the greatest hopes for a continuation of 2016’s triumphs lie. In the Netherlands the latest polls are showing that the anti-immigration and anti-islamisation Party for Freedom (PVV) are heading for 19% of the vote in March’s General Election – sufficient to make them the largest party in the Dutch Parliament. It is much the same in Italy, where following the decisive defeat for the governing centre-left government at the end of the magic 2016 the anti-establishment Five Star Movement also seems set to become the largest party at the forthcoming Italian General Election. The situation in France is probably the most significant however, for at the moment Marine le Pen, the leader of the Front National, stands at 25% in opinion polls making her a seeming certainty to advance to the second decisive round. In spite of the fact that few believe she can win this second round, the fact remains that the French Left is now split in an acrimonious three-way division, and the Republican’s candidate, Francois Fillon, is engulfed in a financial scandal. If one of the leftist candidates can emerge as the opponent for Marine le Pen in the final round then it is quite possible that a surprise outcome on a Donald Trump scale could result in France.

We wish the PVV in the Netherlands, the Five Star Movement in Italy and the Front National in France every success in these forthcoming continental elections. It could therefore very much be the case that rather than simply referring to the surprise series of political results in 2016, future historians will instead be referring to the post-2016 zeitgeist. With this continuing momentum of patriotic ascendancy throughout the West it can surely only be a matter of time before Western military intervention in southern Africa to rescue our beleaguered kith and kin still trapped there becomes a reality.



The Springbok Club participated in a most interesting “Ghost Walk” through central London last moth, which revealed some very fascinating and historically significant aspects about the locality.


The Springbok Club’s 2017 AGM will take place during the afternoon of Saturday 18th February at a venue in central London, and full details have already been notified to all current members of the organization. Following the completion of the business side of proceedings, which is anticipated to conclude prior to 15.30 hrs, the meeting will consist of a tribute in honour of the memory of that great South African patriot Clive Derby-Lewis JCM, and all friends and supporters of the Springbok Club, whether they are members or not, will be welcome to attend this section of the afternoon’s activities. This tribute will consist of the reading of a translation of the funeral oration delivered to him by Adv. Paul Kruger, followed by a talk by a Springbok Club member who knew Clive personally about his experiences of the man and his achievements. For precise details either e-mail: or ‘phone: 07711188430.


In March the Springbok Club is planning to stage a visit to a place of historical interest in London, and during the following months several exciting events are being planned, including a meeting to be addressed by a famous wildlife conservationist, two meetings featuring prominent personalities from Rhodesia’s UDI years and a special meeting where the guest speaker will be an eminent visiting South African. Two more long-term events for 2017 have also already been arranged, firstly a trip to the WWII battlefield at Arnhem in the Netherlands during mid-August, and secondly the organisation’s participation in the annual “Raising of the Flag” ceremony in Norfolk on Sunday 10th September. We ask all supporters therefore to diarise both of these events, and to let us know if they are keen to attend by either e-mailing: or by ‘phoning: 07711188430.



The Swinton Circle held a most successful and enjoyable gathering to celebrate Burns Night in central London last month, and at this event the formal merger between the Swinton Circle and New Britain was formally announced. Following the Burns Night supper itself some members journeyed to the near-by bust of Admiral Arthur Phillip (the first ever governor of New South Wales and the founder of the city of Sydney) and as it was by then Australia Day in Australia itself a few words in tribute to Admiral Phillip and in support of continuing Anglo-Australian friendship were expressed. It will be remembered that the late and great Dennis Delderfield, the founder of New Britain, always staged a special event at this site each year to celebrate Australia Day, and by so doing the newly merged organisation showed that it was determined to continue with Dennis Delderfield’s traditions.

As most readers will probably recall, shortly before his sad death at the end of last year Dennis Delderfield proposed and agreed to the merger between New Britain and the Swinton Circle, but sadly died before details could be finalised. Prior to Dennis’s funeral his 2-i-c in New Britain, Mr. Patrick O’Dwyer, stated that he was in full agreement with the merger plans, and repeated this at the funeral itself, suggesting that a rendezvous with leading Swinton Circle officials be arranged as soon as possible to finalise arrangements. His sister, Lorraine O’Dwyer/Easter, another leading member of New Britain, also expressed her full support for the merger at the funeral, but alas in spite of numerous attempts to contact them both again, by ‘phone, text and e-mail, it worryingly hasn’t proved possible to re-make contact with either of them. We honestly don’t know what the situation with them now is therefore, but there have been no signs that they have decided to renege on the provisional merger agreement, nor that they have been attempting to continue with New Britain activities on their own. If anyone knows anything further about the situation concerning Mr. O’Dwyer and Ms. O’Dwyer/Easter then please let us know.


New Britain/The Swinton Circle will be staging a special buffet meeting to launch the newly merged organisation in central London during late March. The guest speaker at this event will be a leading MEP who was closely involved in the “Vote Leave” campaign. Further details will of course be given in next month’s edition of the SCN. Following this New Britain/The Swinton Circle has several other provisional events lined-up for the months ahead, including meetings to be addressed by another sitting MEP, a former Conservative MP and an acclaimed author.



We have recently received the following message from Louise Joubert of the SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary :-

“The past year and a half has been very hectic with the worst drought in our history and in our country in 85 years. Although some rain has fallen and our dams are just about full, the drought has by no means been broken and we trust and pray that our Lord will bless our country and its people with enough rain to break the terrible drought. The drought continues to impact negatively on many people's lives. Just to put it in perspective for those that do not know – one of our closest towns, Tzaneen continues to have water restrictions. Water supply to the town's businesses and homes is only available 3 times a week now.

“This is also a time for us to reflect on what we have achieved over the past year. We would like to thank all the wonderful people who make SanWild possible. Without your financial support SanWild would not be here. We try to thank everyone as much as we can, but I know that some names do slip through the cracks. Please forgive me if I have failed to thank you publicly or via e-mail. I would also like to extend a huge thank you to the regular monthly donors; you are very special to us and your understanding and love for SanWild does not go unnoticed.

“I would also like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who supported and continue to support our on-going drought relief program. Your donations have helped us to keep the SanWild animals alive and have prevented, especially grazers, dying en masse. Thanks so much once again.”

It has often been stated in the past that sport and politics don’t mix, but continuous evidence over the years has proved that these two fundamental aspects of human existence are inexorably entwined. Following Britain’s magnificent achievements at the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympics – and subsequent great British sporting triumphs such as winning the 2015 Davis Cup – it has been argued that the national feel-good factor and resulting increased self-confidence was a significant factor in the British people having enough national confidence to vote “Leave” in the 2016 EU Referendum. Last year, of course, many leading figures in Donald Trump’s successful presidential campaign stated that the Brexit victory had a significant knock-on effect upon the US Presidential election outcome – so ironically Britain’s triumphs at the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics therefore had a very beneficial effect on the land of their great sporting rivals, the United States!

During the last century our enemies fully appreciated the important links between sport and politics, and used them to their advantage by organising sporting boycotts against Rhodesia, South Africa, Israel and Serbia. Now, with the new post-2016 zeitgeist, it is surely time for us to start utilising sport for our own advantage – after all the natural sporting attributes of patriotism, loyalty and the manly virtues are also part and parcel of our political aspirations!



BBC2 is currently broadcasting a most mesmerizing series entitled “An Island Parish” each Monday evening. Set on the Caribbean island of Anguilla, the main focus of this series is on the Anglican Church on the island and its Bishop – but in spite of this it also presents a broad and most appealing overview of life and society on the island. Anguilla is one of Britain’s 14 remaining colonies (or Overseas Territories as they are now officially termed), but although Whites apparently only make up approximately 3% of the population they clearly exert a benevolent influence far in excess of their actual numbers – and the Black population are clearly grateful for this and remain totally loyal to the Crown and the colonial administration. Anguilla is actually unique in as much as it was once independent (albeit as part of St.Kitts & Nevis) but then sought and was granted renewed British colonial status, having suffered considerably from neglect by the St.Kitts & Nevis Government. There is perhaps a most encouraging precedent here, for maybe other former colonies unwisely granted “independence” during the latter half of the last century, only to suffer subsequently from corrupt, bloodthirsty and incompetent rulers, would also jump at the chance of obtaining stability and prosperity under British overlordship again. The BBC is therefore to be heartily congratulated upon producing such an inspiring series. Well worth a view!

No.219 – Ms. ANN RUSSELL of Durban.

Ann Russell was the on-off-on girl-friend of the late and great Mike Skelly during the 1980s. Previously married with a young son, Mike’s tragic and premature death in 1997 whilst still studying to qualify as a homeopathist meant that their relationship was sadly never formalised. She would however often accompany Mike to patriotic meetings throughout Natal, such as those staged by the Conservative Party and the Patriotic Forum, and indeed acted as S.A.Patriot’s unofficial photographer during the early 1980s. It would be very interesting to learn what eventually became of her.

Hearing the news tonight which just confirms the other genocide going on in South Africa, that of wildlife. It would be interesting if we could get levels of the big 5 life (lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants and rhinos) pre and post-independence in Africa to show up what can only be described as a Holocaust for African wildlife. Maybe, if we can get it, it could be sent to the media?

I have met and welcomed many White South Africans to the UK but feel angry when I hear of Blacks coming here, and how they get in is a mystery. The number of Black and backward Africans getting entry to the UK is ridiculous as they are mostly uneducated and live off the tax-payer. I am so angry with our successive weak governments allowing this to happen and also tolerating mass settlement of Islamics.

Current events show the dead-end of German policy in Europe. Merkel cannot handle the migration situation. There appear more and more anti-Merkel opposers in Italy, Greece and France. It is very possible that there will be some followers of Brexit in the future.

Most readers will undoubtedly recall the severe problems which the Swinton Circle encountered at their disastrous meeting of 31st July 2015 (which was to have been addressed by a Mr. Paul Weston, the leader of a small party called LibertyGB) which was invaded and wrecked by a group of some two dozen uninvited political extremists. More recently, however, we have learnt of some very interesting developments concerning two of the individuals heavily involved in the disruption of this meeting.

Firstly we have learnt that Mr. Steve Uncles, a leading official in the unsavoury “splittist” English Democrats party (who see themselves as the English equivalent of the SNP, and who have even allegedly sought liaison with SF/IRA), who was the first gatecrasher who started heckling and causing trouble at the problematic meeting of 31st July 2015, has been charged with seven counts of using a false instrument with intent and three counts of causing or permitting a false statement to be included in a nomination form (charges relating to the allegation that he not only forged the signatures of false nominees for election candidates for the English Democrats outfit, but even nominated fictitious candidates to stand for them!). Evidently Mr.Uncles did not turn up on the first day of his trial on these counts at Maidstone on Monday 6th February, having previously admitting himself into hospital claiming to be suffering from chest pains. Mr.Uncles did however evidently turn up two days later when his trial eventually began. The case is continuing.

Secondly we have learnt that the LibertyGB member who was named as the person who issued all the unauthorized “invitations” to attend the Swinton Circle’s disastrous meeting of 31st July 2015 (which were sent not only to members of the odious “splittist” English Democrats outfit, but also to the even more vile and objectionable anti-Semitic so-called London Forum bunch of extremists), a Mr. Jack Buckby, has now evidently cut his links with LibertyGB in order to start his own organisation called Proud Boys (no, we haven’t made this name up!). So having been instrumental in wrecking what looked like becoming a very friendly and mutually beneficial link between LibertyGB and the Swinton Circle, Mr.Buckby has now evidently betrayed his former party colleagues in LibertyGB. A very charming person this Mr.Buckby seems to be!

Somebody else who caused severe problems for the Swinton Circle some years earlier, former Committee member Allan Robertson, has also come to our attention again recently. Initially after being expelled from the Swinton Circle for gross misconduct in early 2009 Mr. Robertson started living in denial and staged meetings of his own under the misleading name of “The London Swinton Circle”. After a couple of his meetings featuring .relatively high-profile guest speakers were exposed in the media because of his toxic connections with certain political extremists (his attempted coup to seize control of the Swinton Circle in 2008 in conjunction with these extremists being the reason for his subsequent expulsion), we thought that we had heard the end of Mr. Robertson and his deceptive activities, but alas we have recently learnt that he has renewed his misleading nonsense. The speaker who has addressed two of his three meetings since his resumption of activities has been a most controversial character however, namely Ms. Claire Khaw, a Malaysian-Chinese woman who bizarrely was once a member of the neo-fascist BNP and who once caused great offence by advocating the elimination of disabled children so that they didn’t become “a drain on society”. More information about the controversies surrounding Ms. Khaw can be found at :-

We don’t know whether the fact that Mr. Robertson has invited Ms. Knaw to address his phony outfit twice during recent months means that they have now developed some form of a personal relationship – but if so we don’t know which one to feel sorry for the most!
