July 2017 Edition.


July 2017 edition

The terrifying swarm of mainly Muslim migrants invading the European continent over the past few years – indeed actually ever since the end of WWII – has of course been a most worrying concern for all decent patriotic citizens throughout the continent. The fact that these migrants have been “welcomed” by seemingly so many European institutions and NGOs has of course heightened these worries almost to a point of despair, as it would appear that many within the European continent simply have a death-wish. All is not doom and gloom however, as there have recently been several encouraging developments occurring throughout Europe.

An organization called the Identitarian Movement has recently arisen in France which campaigns in favour of the protection of France’s European identity, and even more encouragingly this movement seems to be spreading its wings to other European countries, most notably to Italy – the country of course which is currently the worst effected by the migrant invasion. The most encouraging aspect about this movement is that they are positively in favour of their own people, rather than being negatively opposed to others. They are also youthful and have an optimistic and defiant view of the future. Recently their supporters in Italy managed to purchase a ship which they will be deploying in the Mediterranean, appropriately named Defend Europe, which they aim to use to intercept boats of illegal immigrants trying to enter Italian waters and then to tow them back to where they came from. This is in marked contrast to a number of ships operated by certain NGOa and so-called “charities” which have been assisting the boats full of illegal immigrants in their reprehensible attempts to invade the European continent. Words fail us to explain the motivations of those who seek to collaborate with those who aim to destroy their own countries and the futures of their children, but from all the news reports which we have seen these self-haters mainly seem to be – surprise, surprise – Germans.

Throughout the last century successive German governments sought to impose their dominance and control over the entire European continent, twice by armed warfare but when both these attempts were defeated by more “peaceful” means via the EU project. Now, however, following the glorious Brexit victory in the UK and increasing disintegration within the EU as a whole, the German state seems to have been engulfed by a Samson-like death-wish. If they are not to get they way and dominate the continent then they would prefer that the whole continent and its civilization be destroyed by the invasion of a totally alien culture. The current German Chancellor Angela Merkel has become the symbolic hate-figure for all European patriots alarmed by the invasions of their own countries, but she is not alone – not by a long, long way. As we have observed, most of the NGO ships actively assisting the invasion of the continent are German owned and crewed, and throughout Germany the spectre of groups collaborating with the invading swarm under the “Welcome Refugees” banner has been sick to observe. Perhaps the most poignant example of this suicidal German mindset has been the revelation that a 16-year-old ethnic German girl named Linda Wenzel (a mini-Angela Merkel if ever there was one!) had been captured by forces in Iraq having run away to join ISIS/ISIL and become a Jihadist bride!

But not all of Europe is afflicted by the same death-wish that Germany apparently suffers from – quite the reverse in fact! It is not just the Brexit triumph and the emergence of the Identitarian Movement which has demonstrated the groundswell of opposition to the German-EU project and their attempted Islamisation of Europe – there has been increasing opposition from the nation-states of Eastern Europe as well, where many states have erected their own unilateral border walls in order to keep the immigrant invaders out. Two Eastern European nations in particular deserve congratulations in this regard – Hungary and Poland. In Hungary its current patriotic Prime Minister Viktor Orban recently issued a defiant statement in which he emphatically disassociated his country from its collaboration government during WWII, and further stated significantly that this should never happen again. In Poland the current government has firmly resisted attempts by he German-dominated EU to interfere in the appointment of Polish judges – and as if to add salt into the wound welcomed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to the country and ensured that they visited one of the concentration camps from WWII in order to show them the evil genocidal excesses of an earlier German regime.

Hopefully all this will ensure that the entire EU edifice soon comes crumbling down, so that all the great European nation-states can once again control their own borders and allow into their countries only those who they choose. But what of Germany itself? Not all Germans are at heart of the same self-hating kidney as Merkel and Wenzel, and deserve a far better existence than they currently endure under the all-persuasive influence of poisonous German Nationalism. Perhaps the answer could be for Germany eventually to revert back into its pre-1870 component states.



The Springbok Club held a most enjoyable and informative historical walking tour through the City of London last month, visiting many of the sites traditionally associated with King Arthur.


The Springbok Club will be holding its annual Rhodes & Founders celebration buffet later this month, the details of which are as follows :-

Date : Saturday 29th July 2017

Time : assemble from 14.00 hrs onwards, meeting to commence at 15.00 hrs.

Venue: THE ANTELOPE (the upstairs dining room), 22 Eaton Terrace, Belgravia, London SW1W 8EZ

(nearest tube station: Sloane Square - turn right out of the main entrance, then right into the north side of Sloane Square which becomes Cliveden Place, then finally left into Eaton Terrace where The Antelope is on the left).

Guest Speaker : Mr. PETER JEWELL

Peter Jewell was born at Redditch in Worcestershire, and educated at Millfield School with the aid of a sports scholarship, after which he applied to play for Worcestershire CCC, Peterborough United FC and Llanelli RFC. He left the UK and headed for Rhodesia in 1968 in order to play Rugby Union and Cricket and to compete in the famous world ploughing match which took place in Hartley. He lived an adventurous and exhilarating life in Rhodesia during the UDI years, before moving to South Africa and then Mozambique. He returned to the UK in 1989 where he has been involved in a number of companies, mainly in management consultancy. He was a director of Worcestershire CCC for 13 years and a member of the English Cricket Board Discipline Commission for 6 years. He was a part-time Tribunal Judge for 23 years and a magistrate for 20 years and a board member and Trustee of the Magistrates Association for England and Wales. A prominent member of UKIP, he has been the party’s Justice Spokesman and Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for West Mercia, and their parliamentary candidate for Redditch (2015) and Richmond Park (2017).

In his talk Peter Jewell will tell more about his sporting and other exploits in Rhodesia and in the UK, and about his personal connections with the Hon. Ian Douglas Smith, Jack Malloch (the owner and founder of Air Trans Africa) and Nigel Farage.

A sumptuous array of buffet snacks will be provided at this event, and the costs will be £10.00 per head for Full Members of The Springbok Club, £12.50 per head for Associate Members, and £15.00 per head for non-members. Payment may be made (in cash) on the day, but in order to gauge numbers we ask everyone who intends to attend to let us know in advance if possible, either by e-mailing or by ‘phoning 07711188430.


In view of the fact that so many supporters who were keen to attend The Springbok Club’s planned trip to the WWII battlegrounds at Arnhem in the Netherlands could not make it during August, it has therefore been decided to postpone this visit until May of next year.


In mid-August The Springbok Club will be staging a special meeting to be addressed by Mr. Johnny Rodrigues of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force who, since he last addressed The Springbok Club, has experienced several appalling threats in Zimbabwe which have alas forced him to leave the country – hopefully only temporarily. More precise details will be circulated as soon as arrangements for this meeting have been finalised.

On Sunday 10th September The Springbok Club will again be participating in the annual “Raising of the Flag” ceremony at Southrepps in Norfolk. Please try to diarise this date and make every attempt to attend this inspiring and awe-inspiring event.



The first official meeting of The Patriotic Forum following its formation as a result of the merger between The Swinton Circle, New Britain and The 343 Group took place last month, when the guest speaker was Mr.Gary Cartwright. Gary Cartwright is a long-standing EuroSceptic activist who worked for over ten years for various UKIP and other non-attached EuroSceptic MEPs at the European Parliament in Brussels. In his most enthralling and well-received talk Mr.Cartwright told much about the strange workings of the EU structure, the failings of UKIP, and gave his opinions about the eventual outcome of the Brexit negotiations. It was good to see several new faces at this meeting, as well as many stalwarts from the Swinton Circle days, and it was particularly pleasing to welcome a former MEP to this event, who was also able to give a useful contribution to proceedings.


In August The Patriotic Forum will be staging a belated celebration of Canada Day with a visit to sites associated with Gen. James Wolfe in Westerham, and in September will be holding an event to celebrate Gibraltar Day. Later on during the year the organisation will be staging a meeting to be addressed by a well-known expert who will be talking about the ongoing threat that the West is facing from expansionist Islam.


Plans are afoot to launch a successor publication to S.A.Patriot-in-Exile which will support the new merged movement and which will be called The Imperial Patriot. All donations to assist in this new venture should be made payable to “Patriotic Press” and sent to: Patriotic Press, BM SAPAT, London WC1N 3XX, U.K. (If however you would prefer to make a donation via direct bank transfer please e-mail: and we will inform you of the bank account details.)



On 28th June BBC2 broadcasted a most moving documentary about Sudan the Rhino – believed to be the last male Northern White Rhino in existence. The Northern White Rhino (a sub-species of the more common Southern White Rhino) has been hunted by poachers to extinction throughout its natural habitat in southern Sudan, Uganda and the Congo, until the only a few individuals are left in western zoos. Praiseworthy efforts are being made by dedicated conservationists to rescue the species by cloning Sudan and using Southern White Rhinos as surrogate mothers, but alas this is proving to be a very difficult task. Surely nothing better illustrates the ecological disaster caused by the West’s post-WWII abdication of its duties and responsibilities to the planet than this most distressing tragedy, and the reason why it is so urgently important that civilized control and administration is re-established throughout the so-called Third World – and in Africa particularly – as soon as possible.



The recent decision by the southern hemisphere Super Rugby authorities to expel two South African teams from the competition – the OFS-based Cheetahs and the Eastern Province-based Southern Kings – was perhaps not surprising given the complete collapse of society in the “new” South Africa, and the consequent deterioration in South African Rugby standards. What has been surprising – astonishing in fact – has been the application, and subsequent acceptance, of these two South African teams to join the Northern Hemisphere Pro12 (presumably to be renamed Pro14?) competition. On the face of it this seems bizarre in the extreme, given the complete seasonal and climatic differences and the huge travel distances involved, but it does perhaps have one potential advantage. This move will clearly re-orientate one significant aspect of South African society away from its decaying Third World environment and towards its area of ethnic origins. We therefore await the outcome of this unexpected development with great interest, and wonder whether it will herald moves by other sections of South African society to re-orientate themselves back to their roots.



We have recently been informed of a most praiseworthy luncheon held in Hobart, Australia, in order to mark the 91st birthday of H.M. The Queen. This event was organised by The Council of United Commonwealth Societies of Tasmania, and was attended by Her Excellency the Governor of Tasmania, Professor the Hon. Kate Warner AM. Those behind this event are to be congratulated, for following Brexit (and indeed perhaps also the move of the two South African rugby teams to a British-orientated competition!) it clearly demonstrates a further most encouraging step towards Commonwealth solidarity!

“The Lucky Bean Tree” is a story of ‘trading places’; of how the Whites, once the dominant race are now chauffeuring the Blacks, and of how the African maids have themselves become ‘madams’. Good for some, worse for others, but certainly bad for Stella. How will she cope? Will a ditzy blonde, who hasn’t lifted a finger in 19 years, manage to support an ever growing household? Not only must Stella haggle with street vendors for sugar and rice but there’s the never ending gin demand. In the big bad world of Premier Mpofu prostitutes demand payment in diesel. So it’s either ‘in bed with the regime’, or it’s imprisonment and ruinous fines, (million dollar notes have been introduced to beat 230 million % inflation). The Re-development Programme (R.D.P.) has been renamed ‘the Revenge of the Dark Persons’ because nothing is re-developed. But the worst thing about the tyranny is the way it renders the crazy, commonplace. Mozepweans have grown so used to the violence that they have forfeited the ability to become shocked. It’s just normal living.

“The Lucky Bean Tree” is on Amazon Kindle UK as an e-book. The cost is $2.99 or the equivalent in £s.



No.224 – Mr. & Mrs. DAVE & PATTI BUCKLE of Durban

The sad saga of Sudan the Rhino has reminded us of Dave and Patti Buckle of Durban. Dave Buckle was a young high-flying manager in the Unilever organization in Durban during the late 1970s, and was a very friendly and popular character. When a group of his fellow employees spent a weekend at the Inanda Game Park during this time they arrived just after the game park had taken possession of two Rhinos for conservationist purposes – and so popular did Dave Buckle seem to be with his fellow employees that they unofficially named the Rhinos “Dave and Patti” in honour of him and his then girlfriend. Dave subsequently married Patti, but unfortunately the collapse of the “new” South Africa meant that the Inanda Game Park eventually closed down. It would however be very interesting to learn where Dave and Patti are now – both the human and the Rhino versions!



Following the merger of The Swinton Circle and New Britain the web-sites of the two organizations have now been combined to form a fresh web-site for The Patriotic Forum, which can be accessed at :-





What a revolting story about the Arab woman who was given plastic surgery treatment at an Israeli hospital after her family burned her, but was then caught trying to act as a suicide-bomber at the same hospital. Having travelled all over Israel I have witnessed just how the Mohammedans treat others there. The women on our small tour party (16) were continually assaulted, their breasts and bottoms groped, and obscenities shouted at them. Humiliation by Muslims was a price for travel and exploration.

Decent intelligent Afrikaners who spent years at university becoming a vet have to spend their time trying to save animals from the negligence and cruelty of savages.

They call them “indigent” but they are primitives, and the ones in charge in this country are of the same ilk only they wear suits. They have stopped all financial help to animal organisations which is yet another aspect of this country that has been “privatized”: taxpayers must now pay from their own pockets for security, schooling, private hospitals, a postal service, farm security, transport (because there’s little public transport in this country), sea rescue, ambulances, you name it. If the government can get away with paying for it, it will! This is tantamount to double taxation. And how do the parasites spend the money that doesn’t fund any of the above? On themselves, overseas trips, clothing, cars, consumer goods. They cannot produce anything but can they consume!!

The world’s most useless creatures!

Yours etc.,

It was with great sadness that we recently learnt of the death of Maurice Xiberras. A great British-Gibraltarian patriot, Maurice Donald Xiberras was born in Gibraltar in 1936 of Maltese ancestry. A teacher by profession, he studied and graduated at the University of Bristol where he became a lecturer in the Department of Hispanic Studies for a number of years. He returned to Gibraltar in 1964 however, where he resumed his teaching career at senior school level.

Alarmed by apparent attempts by the Wilson Labour Government to sellout Gibraltar, he joined the newly-formed Integration With Britain Party in 1967. The IWBP was led by Major Robert “Bob” Peliza (later to become Sir Robert Peliza), a man often compared to the Hon. Ian Douglas Smith because of his fierce determination to retain the British identity of his country against the machinations of the so-called British Government of the time. The IWBP swept to power in 1969 defeating the long-ensconced Left-leaning government of Sir Joshua Hassan, and Maurice was appointed Deputy Chief Minister and Minister for Labour, Social Security and Housing. In his role as Labour Minister he evidently proved a very tough negotiator with Ministry of Defence officials, who employed a large proportion of the colony’s labour force! Following the fall of the Wilson Labour Government in 1970 the threat to Gibraltar’s rights of self-determination seemed to be over, and as a result the IWBP lost power. Maurice Xiberras then became Leader of the Opposition in the Gibraltar Parliament, with Sir Robert Peliza eventually becoming Speaker.

In 1979, however, he decided to leave frontline politics in Gibraltar itself and relocated to the UK, where he not only resumed his teaching and academic career, but also worked as an active lobbyist for the Gibraltarian cause. He gained a First Class MA degree with Honours from the University of Edinburgh, and also studied and qualified as a counsellor and psychotherapist, and as a result of his entrepreneurial spirit subsequently established his own counselling practice in Surbiton. He was a keen sporting enthusiast throughout his life, and for a number of years was manager of the Gibraltar National Hockey team.

He twice addressed meetings staged by our movement, once as a supplementary speaker at a Gibraltarian-themed meeting held by The Springbok Club, and secondly as a speaker in his own right talking about the then current Gibraltarian situation at a Swinton Circle meeting. He was awarded the Gibraltar Medallion of Honour in 2009, and his name was subsequently added to the Gibraltar Roll of Honour. We mourn his death greatly, but memories of his friendly spirit and his fierce determination that Gibraltar should remain British will inspire us for ever.
