May 2019 Edition.


May 2019 edition

After the British people voted decisively to leave the tyrannical European Union at the 2016 Referendum the UK should have left this alien entity entirely on 29th March of this year, and as a result there should have been no EuroElections taking place in the UK during 2019. As we know, however, the machinations of various anti-democratic forces have meant that Britain’s complete withdrawal still hasn’t happened, and so the UK is still going to be lumbered with the expense and inconvenience of holding such elections – even though in reality they will be totally useless and irrelevant.

There should however be one very useful side-effect to these elections, namely to confirm that support for Brexit has consolidated even further since the 2016 plebiscite. Alas, however, this outcome has been put in jeopardy by a split in the pro-Brexit vote caused by the emergence of a breakaway party from UKIP called “The Brexit Party” led by a former leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage. Whether this breakaway has been deliberately engineered by pro-EU forces, or whether it was simply founded as an ego-trip by Farage is uncertain, but the end result is the same in either case – namely to split the pro-Brexit vote.

Farage’s track-record is troubling. Since UKIP won their first three European Parliamentary seats in 1999 there have been a total of 39 UKIP MEPs, but during Farage’s tenure as leader 18 of these either resigned or were expelled from the Party! It would seem therefore that the closer people get to Farage the less they like and respect him! Furthermore Farage’s choice of candidates for his breakaway “Brexit Party” doesn’t seem much better, for inter alia they include Claire Fox, a former member of the Revolutionary Communist Party, Joel Chilaka, a one-time Black militant, and candidates with the names of Adefolajimi Ogunnusi, Mehrtash A’Zami and Ajay Jagota – not exactly the names which one would expect from sons and daughters of the British soil!

As we’ve also noted in the past, some of Farage’s pronouncements have given great cause for concern. During the morning after the 2016 Referendum he stated that he thought the “Vote Leave” campaign had narrowly lost, even though the famous victory had long been obvious to all other observers, he founded his “Brexit Party” with the purpose of contesting this year’s EuroElections long before such elections were confirmed to be taking place in the UK, and once even stated that he supported the idea of a second referendum! All this of course suggested that rather than being a firm supporter of Britain leaving the UK he was actually more concerned with retaining his MEP’s salary and the other perks which go with it. Even more disturbing, however, have been Farage’s statements opposing Western action to remove the evil Islamic dictator Gaddafi in Libya and in order to prevent an escalation of the civil war in Syria. As recent history has shown, the over-hasty withdrawal of Western forces from Libya and the total lack of Western intervention in Syria has led directly to the invasion of Western Europe by swarms of Islamic migrants. The only conclusion that can therefore be reached is that either Farage is a total ignoramus when it comes to understanding the dynamics of international geo-politics – or else he secretly supports the idea of Islamic expansionism into Europe!

Farage’s record should however be compared to that of Gerard Batten, the current leader of UKIP, and the other leading members of UKIP who have stayed loyal to the Party. They have all remained steadfast in their determination to ensure that Britain leaves the EU as soon as possible, and have furthermore proved equally determined that Islamic expansionism into the West should be defeated. Gerard Batten has proved to be very popular and greatly admired by all those close to him, and furthermore has reached out to a new younger generation of British patriots who possess masses of charisma, vibrance and courage. We therefore have no hesitation in advocating full support for all the lists of UKIP candidates at the forthcoming EuroElections.



Earlier this month the Springbok Club staged a most enjoyable trip to the traditional annual Rochester Sweeps Festival. It was whilst visiting this festival in 1994 that the famous Rochester Declaration which pledged “continuing determination to work for the re-establishment of White control in the African continent” was conceived and initiated.


In June the Springbok Club will be visiting a place of significant historical interest in east London, and in July will be holding a meeting to be addressed by a most interesting guest speaker with strong Southern African connections. More details of both these events will be given in next month’s SCN


As some readers may be aware, a nasty smear article attacking the Springbok Club appeared in the ultra-leftist newspaper The Guardian following the organisation’s most successful double-celebration meeting last month, which was then unfortunately picked up both by the Norfolk local paper The Eastern Daily Press and by the South African-based on-line news service News24. This smear not only contained several lies and misrepresentations about the organisation, but also one particular untruth which could be considered as libelous. Steps are currently being taken to initiate action to rectify the lies involved, though we consider it best not to go into detail about the action involved at the stage. We trust however that none of our readers will have been taken in by these lies. A YouTube video counteracting this fake news has however now been produced, which can be viewed at :-



The Patriotic Forum held a most enjoyable event to celebrate the 77th anniversary of Malta being awarded the George Cross last month. This involved a trip to the Blackheath and Charlton areas of south-east London visiting the house where Lt.Gen. Sir William Dobbie (the Governor General of Malta during the early part of WWII when the colony was awarded the George Cross) lived in at Blackheath, before taking a pleasant stroll past historic Charlton House and through the picturesque Charlton Park, before paying respects at the grave of Lt.Gen. Sir William Dobbie in Charlton Cemetery. Following this trip the Patriotic Forum party adjourned to a hostelry in Blackheath where a short informal talk was given about Malta’s recent history and the current sentiments on the island towards its relationships with both the EU and the Commonwealth. A YouTube video featuring Lt.Gen. Sir William Dobbie’s return to the UK following his tour of duty in Malta can be viewed at :-


In late May the Patriotic Forum will be holding a special meeting in order to mark Empire Day. Unfortunately the forthcoming unexpected EuroElections have meant that the planned guest speaker will not be able to address the organisation this month after all, but plans are currently being made to finalise an alternative attraction, and full details will be circulated to all members and supporters in due course


In early July the Patriotic Forum will be staging a special event in order to celebrate Canada Day, and in August the organisation will be holding the first of an annual series of meetings in honour of the memory of the late, great Dennis Delderfield under the theme of “Keep the United Kingdom United”.



We have recently received the following most revealing report from the Network for Animals organisation regarding the plight of donkeys in the “new” South Africa. It reads as follows :-

“We are fighting to stop 50 donkeys from being slaughtered. These 50 donkeys, who live in South Africa, were saved from the Chinese-led donkey genocide that is sweeping Africa. Jonno Sherwin, a kind-hearted South African outbid a Chinese syndicate that wanted to illegally slaughter the donkeys and send their skins to China to be boiled down for use in phony medicine.

“Now Jonno is desperately trying to find homes for them because he simply doesn’t have the money to feed and care for them. That’s why Alan, we urgently need your help.

“Donkeys are being wiped out by the insatiable Chinese demand for their skins. African people use donkeys as transport in tasks like fetching water. They are simple people and easily persuaded to sell their animals by Chinese buyers who offer hard cash. They don’t realise that in Africa, donkeys are worth more alive than dead because in places of poor roads and poverty, donkeys offer tremendous support to local communities.

“In South Africa, if people won’t sell their donkeys, the Chinese arrange for them to be stolen. Then, the poor creatures are led into the bush where men, often drunk, wait to slaughter them. First, they are clubbed and when they fall to the ground, they are often SKINNED ALIVE! Yes, that’s the level of barbarism we are dealing with here.

“We have promised to fight for the 50 doomed donkeys and are desperately trying to raise the funds to keep them fed, housed and alive until loving homes can be found for them. We really, really need your help to do so. Please, if you possibly can, give generously to Network for Animals today so we can save these poor creatures from being skinned alive.

“For the animals,

“Brian and Gloria Davies (and Max) founders and CEO.

”P.S. We have instructed our team to persuade the South African government to stop the donkey genocide by banning the export of donkey skins. It may sound incredible, but as I write this, South Africa does not even have a Minister of the Environment; when the last one died, they did not replace her. That won’t stop us, with your help, we will find a way.”

During a recent interview shown on Sky TV’s cricket channel Duanne Olivier, the former Knights (OFS and Griqualand West) and South African fast bowler, revealed that having been signed by Yorkshire he had now decided to turn his back on the “new” South Africa and to settle permanently in the UK – with the long-term ambition of being selected to play for England. When it was suggested that he was only doing this for the money he strenuously denied the allegation, saying unambiguously that his motivation was to secure the safety and well-being of his family.

By so doing Duanne Olivier is of course to be congratulated. He actually follows many other South African sportsmen – and other White South Africans from all walks of life - in taking this step, as they realise (albeit rather belatedly!) the extent of the disintegration and destruction of their once beautiful country under the tyranny of the ANC regime All White South Africans should of course have done their best to relocate to a civilised part of the world for the sake of the safety and well-being of their families many years ago, but for those who have so far survived it is not too late, as Duanne Olivier has shown,

Our only disagreement with Duanne Olivier is his ambition to play for England. With his clear Afrikaans surname and accent we would suggest that his future cricketing aspirations should lie in representing the Netherlands, and thus to guide the land of his ancestry towards Test Match Status. International Cricket clearly needs more national sides of the highest standard from civilised parts of the globe, thereby decreasing the necessity to play in decaying “third world” countries.



Our friends from the New Zealand National Front have informed us that the protest rally held in Auckland opposing New Zealand’s signing of the UN Migration Compact (which aspires to allow free movement of migrants across national borders around the world) [see April 2019 SCN] was not actually organised by them, but that they supported the demonstration with about 150 supporters. The NZNF and those who organised this protest are therefore to be congratulated not only for this action in itself, but also for alerting others throughout the West to the dangers entailed in this UN Migration Compact, for it evidently applies to all countries, not just New Zealand!

[ N.B. We have been asked to point out that the New Zealand National Front has no connection to the UK extremist political party of a similar name.]



We have recently been informed of an excellent informative article which appeared on the “Conservative Woman” web-site (the official site of the UK Conservative Party’s Women’s Section) highlighting the terrible plight currently being endured by the farming community in the “new” South Africa. Written by Karen Harradine and entitled “Africa’s most endangered species – the White Farmer”, it can be accessed at :-



A campaign has recently been initiated in Gibraltar to procure a seat in the UK Parliament at Westminster for a representative from Gibraltar. A petition with over fourteen thousand signatures calling for this was recently delivered to the House of Commons and to Number 10 Downing Street. A group of six delegates from the Representation in Westminster Movement were joined by the highly-respected EuroSceptic Conservative MPs Andrew Rosindell and Craig MacKinlay as they presented this petition, which can be viewed at :-

No.246 - Mr. DAVID “DAVE” MARTIN of Durban

Dave Martin was a friendly, likeable and laid-back ex-pat on the fringe of the Roper Set (see August 2016 SCN). He played soccer for Durban Collegians, usually in goal where he vied for selection with “Pinetown Pete” Jefferson-Green (see May 2009 SCN) and “Dead-Eyed Dick” Gilmore (see April 2018 SCN). It would be interesting to learn where he is now – as also other members of the Roper Set!



Dave Williams (no relation to David Williams of Durban – see October 2014 SCN) was an active member of the Springbok Club before increasing frailty meant that he was unable to travel. He was also a keen family historian and wrote a magnum opus concerning the ancestral history of the maternal side of his family, the Hinwoods of Wiltshire. Of particular interest to South Africans is the final chapter in this book, “The Hinwoods of South Africa”. This book has now been placed on-line, and can be accessed at :-





I have just read and recommend "Dictatorland" by Paul Kenyon. It deals with the history of Africa over the last sixty years and confirms my long held view that we did retreat from Empire too early under the pressure of liberal bigots, Communists and self-seeking African politicians. Compare and contrast Rhodesia and Zimbabwe-Southern Rhodesia's non-racial qualified franchise should have been the role model for the whole of Africa. "One man one vote" is a sacred cow and like all sacred cows should be questioned.

Yours etc.,

Mark Taylor, London, U.K.




I would surely have loved to come over and seen the sights of Blackheath associated with “Dobbie of Malta”, a Christian British army officer, having a “personal” connection with his cousin, Captain George Staples Dobbie MC, who was the Chairman of the Congo Mission Council of the Africa Evangelists. Our great historical and Christian heritage!

Appreciate all your good work and loyalty to our great Christian and national heritage.

Yours etc.,

Alex Knox-Wylie, Bath, Somerset, U.K.



We have recently come across a letter written to us by Keith Jowsey way back in the mid-1990s. Keith Jowsey lived in Devon and was a keen, dedicated and hard-working British patriot who was active in a number of patriotic organizations, most notably the Campaign for an Independent Britain (CIB). Although he had no direct South African connections he even so was a great and long-standing supporter of his kith and kin in Southern Africa, and as a result gave his support to the infant Springbok Club. His love of his native land also entailed great interest in and respect for the country’s wildlife, and as a result he was a keen badger-watcher. A more decent and genuine man it would be hard to imagine.

In the letter which we have re-found Keith stated: “The CIB here in Devon are plodding along at pace. Since the Maastricht ratification (treason) our membership has increased somewhat – by people who never thought that Parliament would go ahead without a national referendum on the issue. Now it is a matter of waiting to see what develops within the ranks of the ‘rebel’ patriots. We are in touch with one or two of them”.

Unfortunately Keith Jowsey was the victim of a vicious and infantile smear campaign conducted by the notorious Mark Cotterill (see June 2011 and June 2017 SCNs). We too of course have suffered severely from the antics of the grudge-bearing Cotterill, as also have many other individual patriots and patriotic organizations. In his letter Keith writes about this trouble-maker as follows: “Now I think is as good a time as any to clear up one or two points about that Cotterill creature. First, as you yourself know, he can be quite persuasive – both of us fell for his various assurances, and so as it happens did others. However I consider he is a very dangerous person, he wanders here and there in his nomadic pursuit of finding someone or some organisation to latch onto, giving the impression to one and all that he is the best thing which ever happened to them, when his sole intention is to promote himself to such a position where he can fleece one and all. Perhaps you will be interested in how he happened to settle here in South Devon – we may as well have everything out in the open. As you probably know, I myself came down here from Birmingham, and still have many friends and contacts up there. Cotterill’s exit from the Midlands was, to say the least, very fast. He had been in some sort of partnership with another person, and apart from getting out with a considerable amount of money, left his unfortunate partner with a mountain of debts to settle. Did you ever consider how it is that he is able to travel at will here, there and everywhere, always with plenty of money to spend. The man has a great capacity for finding money, particularly if it belongs to someone else. Then we come to his trip to America. It just so happens that just previous to this event one of our supporters had sent through cheques of £50.00 and £150.00 for the election campaign. This was found out just before I exposed Cotterill. These cheques along with many, many others went into Cotterill’s personal NF account. As I said in my earlier letter, he is a liar, a thief and a parasite, and should be treated as such.”

Sadly Keith Jowsey died in 1998, and thus was not able to witness the glorious Referendum victory 18 years later, which he had worked so hard during the barren years to achieve. Keith’s name should therefore always be remembered and honoured, whilst that of the wretched Cotterill – if it is remembered at all – should only be recalled with ignominy. All the time that Britain can produce sincere and dedicated patriots such as Keith Jowsey then the nation has nothing to worry about for the future – and Keith produced two fine sons!
