April 2022 Edition.

SPRINGBOK CYBER NEWSLETTER

April 2022 edition

In the UK at least, all Covid-1984 restrictions have now been lifted, and the Boris Johnson Government has stated “Britain must learn to live with Covid-19”. We fully agree! Our only criticism is that this statement should have been made in early 2020, rather than early 2022!

It should never be forgotten of course that the Covid-19 virus is simply a variant of the standard influenza virus, and that has been with us ever since human life began on earth! It should also not be forgotten that prior to the fancy name of “Covid-19” being coined for this current variant it was simply known as “Wuhan Flu”. It may have been slightly nastier than other flu variants and somewhat more contagious, but at the end of the day it was just another strain of the influenza virus, something which mankind has lived with for millennia, without any tyrannical authorities demanding that people wear ridiculous face masks or stand 6 feet away from their fellow human-beings – let alone a closedown all facets of human activity!

A more worrying aspect of the paranoia being peddled by the authorities over the past two years has been the recent revelation following a Freedom of Information request that from the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic in February 2020 until 31st December 2021 only 6,182 people died in England-and-Wales from the virus. The much-bandied figure of over 150,000 deaths referred to those who died with Covid, not from it. These deaths include many who died from heart attacks and strokes where the presence of the Covid infection clearly didn’t contribute in any way to the death, and in at least one notorious case a death from a road accident was also recorded as a “Covid death”! This revelation of course simply confirms the observations of undertakers up and down the country that there had been no noticeable increase in the seasonal totals of deaths - in spite of all the additional deaths caused by the direct effects of the “lockdown” restrictions, most notably increased suicides.

Quite clearly therefore the severity of the Covid-19 virus has been wildly exaggerated – indeed we have been totally lied to about its danger by the medical authorities. By so doing Britain and the rest of the West have endured two years of economic disaster, and our children have been denied two years of proper education. The current cost of living crisis and increased taxation have been directly caused by all this lunacy, and this is going to take decades – if not generations – to be rectified. Those responsible for all this scare-mongering, all the way from the medicrats at the top such as “Sir” Chris “Dim” Whitty, right down to all the self-appointed “Little Hitlers” who have confronted law-abiding citizens asking why they aren’t wearing ridiculous face-masks or standing 6 feet away from their fellow human-beings, must surely one day be held to account.

Much play has recently been made of the fact that staff at No.10 Downing Street held work-related parties contrary to the lunatic Covid regulations. Unlike many we do not condemn those who participated in such parties – indeed we say “Good luck to them!”. Our condemnation is reserved for those scumbags who introduced such draconian and totally irrational restrictions in the first place. Not only do we support the rights of the No.10 party-goers, but we also DEMAND that all those who have been charged and fined for breaking the unjustified “lockdown” laws should be given unreserved pardons and awarded appropriate financial compensation!

SPRINGBOK CLUB NEWS

The Springbok Club’s 2022 AGM, held last month, proved to be quite a successful occasion, in spite of the fact that the venue had to be slightly changed at the last minute and the turnout was consequently somewhat lower than hoped and anticipated. A replacement committee member was elected following the sad death of a long-standing committee member last year, and a number of minor motions were debated and voted upon. More importantly, however, a schedule of activities for the next few months was decided upon, which are detailed below. After the business side of affairs was completed Mr. Gary Vincent gave another of his fascinating PowerPoint presentations, this one being about the history of our brother Commonwealth country New Zealand from the first voyages of discovery by Capt. James Cook until the establishment of the New Zealand Company and first colonial settlements in 1839/40.

----------------------------

On Saturday 23rd April – St.George’s/Sigurd’s Day – the Springbok Club will be staging a visit to the Museum of London Docklands, No.1 Warehouse, West India Quay, London, E14 4AL. The main reason for this trip is to pay our respects to the memory of that great British hero, Robert Milligan, who planned and financed the construction of London’s West India Docks. Disgustingly a statue of Robert Milligan was removed from its historic position outside the Museum by enemies of our country a couple of years ago, but happily other commemorative memorials to the great man still remain near-by. The Springbok Club party will be assembling at “The Ledger Building” (a Wetherspoons pub) which is situated next-door to the museum at 4 Hertsmere Road, West India Quay, London E14 4AL (nearest stations: West Ferry and West India Quay on the DLR) between 13.30 hrs and 14.30 hrs. ‘Phone: 07711188430 if you have any problems finding this location. After the visit to the Museum of London Docklands the party will be returning to “The Ledger Building” for a convivial celebration of St.George’s/Sigurd’s Day.

----------------------------

The Kent Branch of the Springbok Club will be staging a trip to the Rochester Sweeps Festival on Sunday 1st May. Assemble in “The King’s Head”, 58 High Street, Rochester, Kent, ME1 1LD (nearest rail station: Rochester) between 12.30 hrs and 13.30 hrs. If you have any difficulty finding this location then ‘phone: 07711188430.

----------------------------

In June the Springbok Club will be holding a meeting to be addressed by a prominent South African expatriate, and in July the organisation aims to hold a braai in order to celebrate Rhodes & Founders Day. The organisation is still looking for an ideal venue to stage such a braai in the Greater London area however, so if anyone can help in this regard please let us know.

In August the Kent Branch of the Springbok Club will be staging a trip to the Hythe Venetian Fete, and in September the organisation will be staging the annual “Raising of the Flag” ceremony, this time hopefully at the grave of Lieut. E.C. “Teddy” Tindale-Biscoe RN, who of course first raised the Union Flag at the site which subsequently became Salisbury on 13th September 1890.

PATRIOTIC FORUM NEWS

There has been much discussion within the Patriotic Forum committee about whether to pay the rather extortionate annual fee of £140.00 in order to renew our Zoom facility, or whether to forgo Zoom meetings and to resume “live” meetings in the London area instead. An AGM of the organisation is therefore being planned for May in order to discuss this matter and other subjects relating to future activities, and the full arrangements regarding this AGM will of course be detailed in next month’s SCN. If any supporter – particularly those based overseas – would be keen for the Patriotic Forum to resume Zoom meetings, and could help to raise the necessary £140.00 annual fee for this facility, then the details about how to make a financial contribution can be found at the end of this edition of the SCN.

------------------------------------------------------------------

THE IMPERIAL PATRIOT

Copies of edition No.42 of The Imperial Patriot have now started to be posted out to all overseas subscribers, but alas there is still a long way to go, and further funds are therefore required rapidly in order to complete this task. Perhaps the best method of helping in this regard would be to purchase a supply of back-copies of the magazine, as this would also enable you to make a small profit by selling copies to your friends and work-mates. A selection of 50 assorted copies is available for only £25.00, and details of how to pay can be found at the end of this edition of the SCN. Please e-mail us at: springbk@netcomuk.co.uk to confirm that you have made such a payment however, and also let us know whether you would like copies only of The Imperial Patriot, only of the predecessor publication S.A.Patriot-in-Exile, or a mixture of the two.

MESSAGE FROM THE FAUNA AND FLORA INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATION

We have recently received the following most important message from the Fauna & Flora International organisation about the plight of wild Lions throughout Africa. It reads as follows:-

“THE DOWNFALL OF THE KING OF BEASTS

“Panthera leo: lion. One of the most iconic animals on the planet.

“It is easy to see why they have been admired throughout history. Lions are formidable predators with extraordinary senses - their night vision is six times better than a human's; they can hear prey from up to a mile away; and they are the second fastest wild cat on Earth.

!We've fallen in love with them through some of our most famous fictional characters. Simba. Nala. Aslan. Lions are an awe-inspiring embodiment of strength, power and courage. But it’s not all magnificence and splendour. In the real world, lions are in trouble, real trouble.

There may be as few as 20,000 lions left in the wild. In fact, lions have disappeared from over 90% of their historical range.

“As the human population increases, these magnificent mammals are being crowded out of their homes - boxed in by human settlements - unable to roam as far and free as they need to survive.

And this pushes them into ever more dangerous situations.

“Where humans and lions live in close proximity, there is a risk of lions preying on livestock, which can cause lions to be tragically targeted in retaliation. It's a loss the species can't afford. This is why lions need your help.

“FFI is protecting some of Africa's crucial areas that harbour lions. With your support, we can make sure that these areas are safeguarded for the future. Safe from conflict with humans. Safe for the lions to hunt and thrive in peace.”

RUSSIA’S SPORTING SITUATION

One of the worst side-effects of the current tragic military conflict between Russia and the Ukraine has been the way in which Russian and Belarusian sportsmen and sportswomen have been victimised by many international sporting authorities – in some cases by not allowing them to compete under their national banners, and in others by barring them from competing entirely! This surely is contrary to all tenants of natural justice. It is the politicians and military leaders who are responsible for the present tragic crisis, not the sportsmen and women!

Furthermore, why is it only the Russian and Belarusian sportsmen and sportswomen who are being victimised in this way? Why not the Ukrainian sportsmen and women also? By taking such a biased one-sided stance regarding the sorry conflict the authorities in question do themselves no favours whatsoever, and indeed probably harden attitudes even further. Either competitors from both sides should be restricted, or none at all. Needless to say we would far prefer the latter!

But alas this hasn’t been the first recent example where Russia has been singled-out for sporting punishment. During the past Olympic and Paralympic cycle Russians have not been allowed to compete under their national flag and national anthem in all major global sporting competitions. This has allegedly been because Russia was accused of state-sponsored dopping violations, even though nothing more than circumstantial evidence has ever been produced, and Russian competitors haven’t exactly been producing consistent world-beating performances – certainly not in comparison to competitors from the old GDR during the Cold War!

All these irrational and unjustified witch-hunts against Russian and Belarusian sportsmen and women must cease – for if such an olive-branch was to be extended then it might go some way towards halting the current tragic conflict in the Ukraine.

PETITION SUPPORTING AFRIKANER RIGHTS OF SELF-DETERMINATION

A supporter from Pretoria has started a most praise-worthy petition campaign regarding the Afrikaner Accord of 23 April 1994 (which guaranteed the rights of the Afrikaner people for self-determination and their own territory), which the ANC regime had broken by 2001, - and nobody has had this properly investigated since! This petition can be accessed at :-

BBC PROGRAMME ABOUT MARY WHITEHUSE

The recent 2-part BBC2 programme about Mary Whitehouse, the doughty moral crusader from the 1960s and 70s, “Banned: The Mary Whitehouse Story” made fascinating viewing. Although on the face of it Mary Whitehouse was not successful, as she failed to stamp out the scourge of obscenity and sexual perversions which prevailed in the Western World at the time, as the programme vividly demonstrated she definitely came down on the right side of history!

Clearly Mary Whitehouse had the wrong image – that of a middle-class schoolmistress (which indeed she was!), and also surrounded herself with the wrong people, such as the Moors-murderess-apologist Lord Longford, the irascible Roman Catholic-convert Malcolm Muggeridge and – most sickening of all – the race-traitor and child-molester Bishop Trevor Huddleston. She also made a great mistake by linking her estimable campaigns too closely to her own Christian religion. All decent people, of all religions and of none, are of course equally opposed to the evils of pornography and sexual depravity.

But what was pointed out by this programme was that now – some 50 years later – it is obvious that the “permissive society”, which Mary Whitehouse campaigned so valiantly against, has been the direct cause of violence against women and child abuse. As she rightly argued all those years ago, pornography simply degrades and exploits women, and one sexual perversion such as homosexuality inevitably leads to another such as paedophilia.

It is strange therefore that at the time most feminists opposed and belittled Mary Whitehouse, whereas in reality she was the original stereo defender of women’s rights. If her campaigns against pornography had been totally effective then almost certainly Sarah Everard would still be alive today. We need another Mary Whitehouse to emerge today therefore – but this time with a better image and with none of her self-defeating faults.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW ?

No.281 - Ms. ROSEMARY SISSONS of Melbourne, Australia.

Rosemary Sissons ran an organisation called the National Fronts of Australia and New Zealand during the late 1970s and early 1980s, and also produced their interesting little publication. It initially seemed that their movement held similar neo-Imperialist views to our own, and so S.A.Patriot arranged a reciprocal exchange of publications with them. Alas copies of the NFANZ’s publication ceased to arrive after a while, even though we continued to honour our side of the agreement. Even more disturbing was the fact that an article in the final edition which we received seemed to suggest that they supported political enemies of ours. In spite of continuing to honour our side of the reciprocal exchange agreement the latest couple of copies of The Imperial Patriot which we’ve sent to Rosemary Sissons have now been returned to us, as she is evidently no longer known at her last known address in Melbourne. It would be very interesting to learn what has happened to her and the NFANZ therefore, and also exactly what their political position really was.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR LIFE STRUGGLE

Sir,

We must do all we can to protect and cherish our British way of life, not just from foreigners but also from our “fifth column” politicians, as well as the lackey press. Our way of life is under threat from foreign influence, in particular American. We are being weakened militarily, economically and culturally. The Johnson Government is impotent. The opposition Labour Party will continue to flood us with more Third World crap if they were ever to govern again. The Tories are a joke.

Yours etc.,

Adam Hiley, Upminster, London, U.K.

WORK IN PROGRESS

Sir,

Post Brexit Britain :-

1 After Brexit why is the government still complying with EU set targets on CO2 levels? I have just re-read Christopher Booker's Book "The Real Global Warming Disaster". In this he documents the history of the IPCC's total manipulation of statistical facts concerning global warming. it's publication of lies and untruths about global warming scenarios and its continuous rejection of views expressed by scientists with the authority and experience of their particular subjects which conflict with the IPCC's mantra of proving that AGW is a catastrophe that is about to happen. The government must abolish the mad rush to reduce CO2 levels which is totally non-achievable, un-workable, un-economic and unacceptable as soon as possible.

2 Another failure is the government's failure to delete VAT on energy prices and to close down efficient and cheap to run coal fired power stations - again, to meet EU standards.

3 Why has the government not abolished the CPC for HGV drivers? This again was introduced by EU legislation and was and is totally unnecessary as all lorry drivers are full time professional drivers. If we have 250,000 lorry drivers in the UK the CPC requirement takes 250,000 delivery weeks out of the total.every 5 years. This amounts to 50,000 delivery weeks lost every year. With 50 weeks in the year this amounts to losing 1,000 lorry drivers from the workforce. The costs of all this lost manpower to the UK public must be horrific.

There are many more examples of stupid EU rules which are still being applied by our corrupt civil service.

Yours etc.,

“Concerned”, Salisbury, Wiltshire, U.K.

LESSONS NOT LEARNT

Sir,

Following the Belgians’ overnight departure from the neighboring Congo, a large-scale cross-border invasion took place into North-Eastern area of Portuguese Angola by terrorist gangs intent on occupying the region. The area was poorly served by road communications and was thinly populated by small, hard-scrabble farms settled by Portuguese immigrants who had been enticed to Africa in the hope of making better lives for themselves. Servicing these agriculturalists were a number of [then] small towns and villages, all but the largest of which comprised a couple of general stores, a garage or two, police station and post office. Portuguese military forces in Angola at the time were relatively small and their internal and external military intelligence capability was both risible and negligent. Only the larger settlements held out desperately until reinforcements could be hastily thrown together and sent up-country. Portuguese men, women and children and their loyal African employees were butchered out of hand - typically using machetes. In one particularly shocking episode, Portuguese women were brutalized and fed through the circular saw at a sawmill. The events of the Congo and Angola can also be said to have helped to inform socio-political values among both Blacks and Whites in countries such as Rhodesia and South Africa at the time. Blacks - that violence is a viable alternative to negotiation. Whites - that anarchy and violence lurk just beneath the surface in Africa

Yours etc.,

Benny Sparrow, Durban, Natal, South Africa.

THE END OF AN ATTEMPTED REBELLION

Long-standing readers of the SCN will no doubt remember the crisis which the Swinton Circle (one of the component organizations which subsequently merged to form today’s Patriotic Forum) faced in 2008. In a nutshell, certain trouble-making extremists started attending Swinton Circle meetings and caused great problems by aggressive (and in one case totally deranged) questioning of guest speakers, and also by verbally abusing other attendees. It was decided by committee members that the three trouble-makers in question should be barred from attending future meetings, but in July 2008 all three of them turned up, and when asked to leave caused a nasty confrontation .The then Organiser of the Swinton Circle, Mr. Allan Robertson, then commenced the meeting unilaterally with the three barred attendees still present, and it subsequently transpired that Robertson was in league with them and was attempting to facilitate their takeover of the entire organisation. After this he staged an unconstitutional kangaroo court in a ham-fisted attempt to remove the Chairman and some other Committee members (see August 2008 SCN).

A fully constitutional EGM was subsequently called by loyal members of the Committee in January 2009, whereat a motion to expel Robertson and two of his close associates from the organisation was passed (two abstentions, no votes against). Robertson and his two associates – who had all been invited to attend the EGM, though none of them turned up – were however given 30 days to appeal against their expulsions, but none availed themselves of this opportunity, and so in February 2009 their expulsions became absolute (see February 2009 SCN).

There the whole unhappy matter should have ended, but unfortunately Robertson ignored the EGM decision and started to live in denial, staging his own “rival” Swinton Circle meetings, though reviving the full official title of “The London Swinton Circle” in doing so. This rebellion of course caused the official Swinton Circle great problems and embarrassment, particularly when Robertson started to invite some very unsavory and extremist characters to address his meetings. Legal action against Robertson was considered, but alas the cost of such litigation proved to be prohibitive.

Robertson however died from a heart attack in February 2020 (see March 2020 SCN), but not before one of the extremist trouble-makers (the notorious Ian Anderson) and one of his fellow-expelled associates (Christopher Luke, an overt homosexual) had also died. Through various sources we learnt that claims were being made by the remaining backers of Robertson’s rebellion that they would be continuing activities, though nothing ever happened during the subsequent two years to support this claim. Now, however, we have learnt that the web-site of Robertson’s breakaway outfit has been closed down, and so at last, after 13 years, this irritating problem has been removed!

Now however is not the time for triumphalism or retribution. Although of course the two remaining trouble-makers and Robertson’s one remaining fellow-expellee would never be allowed to join the Patriotic Forum, we know that there were several members of Robertson’s breakaway outfit who either through naivety or through ignorance of the full facts were unaware of the true situation. To these genuine patriots we extend the warm hand of friendship, and invite them to join the patriotic mainstream in the form of the Patriotic Forum. After all, as the old South African motto stated: “Unity is Strength”!

March 2022 Edition

SPRINGBOK CYBER NEWSLETTER

March 2022 edition

As readers will know, the SCN usually only concerns itself with affairs relating to South Africa, the U.K. and other parts of the British Commonwealth. The recent conflict between Russia and the Ukraine is however so catastrophic and of such global importance that it can’t pass without comment.

Our movement is of course staunchly Unionist in the U.K. context, and as such tends to support the unity, and in some cases the re-unification, of all the great European nation-states. As a result we also naturally support the unity of the Russian people – and by saying this we mean “All the Russias” as the country was termed during Tsarist times, meaning basically Russia itself, Belarus (“White Russia”) and the Ukraine.

President Putin therefore has much validity when he asserts that the Ukraine is an artificial country. The very word “Ukraine” means “borderlands” - i.e. the borderlands of Russia. Apart from a few months following the Soviet Revolution, and for three years as a German puppet state during WW2, there was never any independent country with the name of “Ukraine” prior to 1991. The Ukrainian language, being an East Slavic tongue, is little more than a linguistic dialect of Russian, written in the same Cyric alphabet; and Kiev (to use the long-standing English spelling) was capital of Russia (i.e. “All the Russias”) from 882 to 1243.

Having said all this, however, Putin’s “Special Military operation” into the Ukraine surely cannot be justified. Not only is it morally wrong – involving the slaughter of thousands of innocent civilians – but it is also clearly counter-productive. Rather than encouraging the Ukrainian people to rejoin “Mother Russia” it will have completely the opposite effect, as the trauma of the conflict will remain in the Ukrainian psyche for generations to come. The military operation of only a few days will put back the aspiration of Russian re-unification by a hundred or so years!

To be sure there are many unpleasant aspects about the current Ukrainian state which have caused genuine apprehensions within the Russian government – the rampant corruption throughout society; the strength and influence of extremist forces who idolize the German puppet-state of the 1940s, and of course the current president, who although undoubtedly an honest and decent person himself, is a comic actor by profession and clearly not qualified for such high office, resulting in him becoming a puppet of the more sinister forces in the Ukrainian “deep state”. Perhaps the most worrying aspect of the current Ukraine however is the control which the United States – specifically the Biden Administration - has over it, for Biden’s son Hunter holds great financial interests in the country. We believe however that it would have been infinitely better and more effective if the Russian Government had used the rapier rather than the sabre to eliminate these threats on their border.

But there is something more fundamental and important involved here. In spite of being termed a “Special Militaty Operation” the conflict is in reality a war – a civil war. Both sides in this conflict are Slavs, and thereby all participants and casualties are White. During WW1 a commentator observed that whilst the White nations were massacring each other the non-White nations around the world were sitting back and laughing. This alas is probably also the case now. We therefore can only entreat both sides to enter into immediate negotiations to end this self-defeating fratricidal conflict. We say this not as an enemy of Russia, but as a friend.

------------------------------------------------------------------

PATRIOTIC FORUM NEWS

The Patriotic Forum held a highly informative Zoom meeting last month, which was addressed by Ms. Kay A. Shemirani, a holder of a General Nursing Diploma (Pers Nutr), and a leading campaigner against the unjustified Covid-19 regulations and compulsory vaccinations. In her extremely knowledgeable talk Ms. Shemirani fully exposed the nature of the “Covid con” and the part played by “big Pharma” in the controversial drive for mass vaccinations.

Unfortunately this Zoom meeting was beset by technical problems, and as a result didn’t begin until twenty minutes after the advertised start time. We know that quite a number of people who wished to attend presumed that the meeting had been cancelled because of this delayed start, and so we apologise to all these people for their disappointment and frustration.

----------------------------

The Patriotic Forum has decided not to stage any further Zoom meetings until the technical problem has been fully resolved, but in any case intends to resume live meetings as from next month. Full details about all future Patriotic Forum events, both live and via Zoom, will of course be detailed in future editions of the SCN.

MESSAGE FROM THE ANIMAL SURVIVAL INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATION

We have recently received the following truly alarming message from the Animal Survival International organisation about the plight of Rhinos in the “new” South Africa. It reads as follows:-

“Please, help us provide the special foods and medications and 24-hour care that Daisy (and her three friends) need to survive!

“We have terrible news! Right now, four baby rhinos have been orphaned after their mothers were killed for their horns in the South African bush. We have been asked to help save them. Taking advantage of freak storms, poachers swooped in on a game area in South Africa’s “Mpumalanga” [South-East Transvaal] area and slaughtered every rhino they could find. These orphans need our help!

“They are the innocent victims of a poaching epidemic that has swept the country. Poachers have killed 24 rhinos in South Africa since the beginning of December, according to the Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment.

“Each baby rhino story is more heart-wrenching than the next…it’s a miracle that four babies survived!

“One baby was no more than 12 hours old when she was found lying next to her mother’s mutilated carcass with the umbilical cord still attached. Now named Daisy, she had yet to take her first steps; she couldn’t even stand. She was rushed to our partner, Care for Wild’s (CFW) sanctuary where she received an emergency blood transfusion from an older rescued rhino.

“Daisy now has intensive round-the-clock care. She is fed hourly and always has a caregiver with her. She is a tiny, tiny baby and has already lost out on receiving the nourishing colostrum from her mother’s milk that should’ve kick-started her development.

“One of the last of his species, baby Taro wandered hungry and alone for days…followed by hungry hyenas!

“It couldn’t be more important that Taro, a baby black rhino, survives because black rhino are hurtling towards extinction, with only 5,000 left in the world. Taro’s survival could make an important contribution to breeding – if we can keep him alive. Poachers used the cover of a storm to brutally kill his mother and he wandered alone in the wilderness for several days before an anti-poaching unit found him and sent him to our partner.

“For 18-month-old Taro, proper nutrition is crucial – he must eat between 20 and 30 different shrubs and trees every day as well as take special medication for the next two months if he is to have a chance.

“So traumatized by his ordeal, Aquazi had to be sedated and blindfolded before his pneumonia could be treated!

“Aquazi was found when he was just three weeks old. He’s another little miracle because he had wandered the bushveld on his own for several days and still survived, just. He was so stressed that he had to be blindfolded, given earplugs and sedated before he could be put on a drip to fight pneumonia in his body. Aquazi is now stable. He has a sweet nature and has befriended an orphaned zebra at the sanctuary.

“Shiloh was so close to death she had to be medevacked by helicopter during a ferocious storm!

“Shiloh was found lying motionless close to her mother’s body just as a ferocious storm rolled in. A rescue helicopter managed to get the baby to our partners just in time and veterinarians immediately began treating her on the helipad.

“All four babies are so stressed by their ordeals that they must be given medication to prevent the development of deadly ulcers. Without it, vets say all four would die.

“It is amazing that these defenseless babies survived long enough to be rescued. Although they are now safely in the hands of a devoted team of caregivers (in an undisclosed location – for their safety), it remains a touch-and-go situation for all of them.

“The CFW team is working in shifts to ensure a caregiver is always by the orphans’ sides – they must be monitored around the clock. The youngest calf, still only a few days old, must be fed every hour because she is not stable, and her condition is of major concern.

“All of the babies are severely traumatized and fighting for their lives. We have never before been called upon to save four baby rhinos at the same time – it is a staggering task and one we cannot complete without the help of animal lovers like you.”

THE 2022 OLYMPIC GAMES

This year’s Winter Olympic Games held at Peking/Beijing will not go down in history as one of the best organised Games ever. It was a controversial choice as host right from the beginning, not only because of the appalling human rights record of the People’s Republic of China, but also because most of the venues were hundreds of miles away from the nominal host city, and were situated in the far northern wilderness in unsuitable climatic areas which had never previously been used for international competitions.

The situation was made far worse of course by the paranoid measures taken as a result of the so-called Covid pandemic, which involved very limited numbers of spectators being allowed to view the events, all competitors being required to wear ridiculous face-masks when not actually competing, and competitors being barred from competing if they had “tested positive”, even though they displayed no symptoms!. Given that these Games took place in the People’s Republic then these draconian restrictions were perhaps not surprising! There was also the unwarranted banning of Russian competitors being allowed to compete under their country’s name and flag, allegedly because some Russian sportsmen and women had tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in the past. If all countries who had sportsmen and women testing positive in the past were to be sanctioned in this way then there would be very few national flags on display!

The organisation of events clearly lacked efficiency and expertise, which was of course most obviously exemplified by the mis-direction of Jarl Magnus Riiber in the Nordic Combined event! This of course mirrored the chaotic scenes at the start of one of the Triathlon events at last year’s Summer Olympic Games at Tokyo. It seems quite clear therefore that Asian venues and organisers are totally unsuitable for major sporting events. There are after all plenty of resorts in the Alps, Scandinavia and the Rockies eager to stage future Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games!

As far as the competitions themselves were concerned there were several outstanding performances, with the magnificent victory of Eve Muirhead’s Women’s Curling Team being the highlight of the Games for all British fans. Other notable Gold Medal winning performances which deserve hearty congratulations include those of Beat Feuz (Switzerland) and Corinne Suter (Switzerland) in Alpine ski-ing events, Quentin Fillon Maillet (France), Johannes Thingnes Bo (Norway) and Marte Roiseland (Norway) in Biathlons, Alexander Bolshunov (Russia) and Therese Johaug (Norway) in Cross-County Ski-ing, Marius Lindvik (Norway) in Ski-Jumping, and Nils van der Poel (Sweden) and Irene Schouten (Netherlands) in Speed Skating.

But what of the “new” South Africa? After the 2018 Winter Olympics held at PyeongChang in the Republic of Korea we observed that the “new” South Africa had only sent one competitor. In 2022, however, even this was surpassed, as this year the country sent zero competitors! Surely nothing can more clearly demonstrate that sorry land’s decline from First World Sporting Super-power to irrelevant Third World non-starter than this! We’ve asked in the past if anyone knows what became of the Springbok Ski Club of the 1970s, and the most delightful lady who ran it, but alas we never received any response. We ask again therefore whether any reader has any information?

------------------------------------------------------------------

A TRAITOR’S OWN GOAL

Reader’s may well remember an individual named Ben van der Merwe who made contact with the Springbok Club in 2018, expressed seeming support for the organisation, and even claimed to be the great-grandson of Frank Waring, the former NP cabinet member. Van der Merwe was subsequently exposed as a traitor when he was involved in the stealing of a Rhodesian flag at the 2018 “Raising of the Flag” ceremony, after which it was discovered that he was the author of some very left-wing articles in the Oxford University publication Cherwell!

A supporter has however recently informed us that van der Merwe has now evidently moved-on, and is currently writing for the Leftist magazine The New Statesman. The article which caught our supporter’s eye, however, was complaining that new legislation meant that some six million foreigners currently resident in the UK would no longer be eligible for British citizenship. Rather than advancing his Leftist cause by this article, it has actually proved something of an “own goal”, as it has been a great encouragement and morale-booster for patriotic Britons who have for long campaigned for an end to immigration and the initiation of an effective repatriation programme, This most interesting article can be accessed at :-

WHERE ARE THEY NOW ?

No.280 - Mr. KEITH BOLTON of Wellington, New Zealand.

Keith Bolton (he sometimes went under the name of Kerry Bolton) was a patriotic activist in New Zealand during the 1980s. He was National Secretary of a New Zealand patriotic political party called New Force and was on the editorial board of their magazine Attack!. In 1983, however, New Force changed its name to the Nationalist Workers Party, but alas this rather strange change did not prove a success, and the organisation collapsed shortly thereafter. Keith Bolton maintained his patriotic activism however, and founded a patriotic publishing and book-selling enterprise called Realist Publications. Keith Bolton and the New Force established very close and friendly contacts with S.A.Patriot during the early 1980s however, and indeed were featured in an article in the magazine’s “White Renaissance” series in edition No.20 of S.A.Patriot. Alas contact with Keith Bolton somehow ceased after the magazine was forced to relocate to the UK in 1990, although being an exchange subscriber he continued to be sent copies of both S.A.Patriot-in-Exile and The Imperial Patriot. The latest couple of copies of The Imperial Patriot sent to him were returned however, as he is evidently no longer living at his last known Wellington location. If anyone knows what has happened to him and where he is now we would be most interested to learn.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

GLOBAL STRUGGLE

Sir,

In my eyes, those behind your organisation are heroes. When so many other 'cardboard men' hurt South Africa, you exposed them and you tried to stop the disaster from happening. I really do look up to you. Overall, 98% of our values are the same. I'm a wee bit more 'flexible' on a few social issues involving marriage [mainly because of my time in Thailand], but we see the world through pretty similar eyes. I believe in civilized rule, and it's been a great honour to be part of your organization, even though I am not South African.

As for me, I've been quiet because I've been slammed with final exams. I also had a major family issue recently, and have to go through the pain of a broken heart. At age 44, I've learned that the pain of a broken heart never changes. It's just like being a teenager again; and I'm immersed right now in exposing some wrong things that Thailand's international hospitals are doing. I'm convinced that at least a modest part of it has to do with racism. This is Asia, and Caucasians have been told to be last in line for Covid care/major medical care because, frankly, of what I call Asian supremacism.

Yours etc.,

Prof. Jason Jellison, Bangkok, Thailand

TAX ADVICE

Sir,

It is high time that UK income tax payers realise that WE are the EMPLOYERS of all publicly funded personnel. The government of every hue never, ever, thinks of cutting un-necessary costs when unforeseen expenses occur. They only think of raising taxes or reducing necessary benefits. One essential reform would be to cap ALL publicly funded salaries to say, £100,000 pa. This would sort out the NHS executive salary quoted in the example below. Of course this salary cap would need some exceptions but these could be listed and published. Many council employees are also paid vast salaries which the council tax payers have absolutely no control over. Hence the non-publicly funded UK income tax payers are paying their taxes, pensions and income tax taken from their salaries.

Cutting costs means that we cannot afford HS2 and this should be scrapped immediately. The benefits paid to illegal immigrants must be minimised which should help to reduce substantially the numbers coming to the UK. We are apparently signatories to international treaties that prevent us sending them back to France. So, revoke our involvement in the treaties which overrule the rights of countries to control who can live .in their country. We the taxpayers are having to pay for all these immigrants most of whom are apparently economic migrants anyway. I understand that some treaties insist that immigrants have the RIGHT to live in any country they want to. In other words UK taxpayers are expected to fund the total world population if they all want to come and live here. Totally ridiculous. Hence UK taxpayers must combine to assert what we are willing to pay for. example, senior civil servants are often given a vast payment on retirement. This is when many UK citizens are relying on food banks to survive. The government tried to put a cap on the amount but the Civil Service Union objected and I think the craven government gave in and the cap was either removed or increased. These payments MUST be scrapped altogether.

Another bone of contention is the CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) for UK lorry drivers. This involves every lorry driver having to go back to school for a week every 5 years to keep his certificate current. This was another bureaucratic requirement legislated by the EU some years ago. Why is it necessary? The UK had a HGV driving licence system before this was introduced which must have been perfectly adequate for road safety. After all lorry drivers are all professional drivers and 35 hours of classroom tests every 5 years are an insult to their professionalism. Now assume we have 250,000 lorry drivers (includes, bus drivers etc.) in the UK. Therefore every 5 years we are losing 250,000 weeks of deliveries. That is 50,000 delivery weeks every year. Hence scrapping the CPC system would result in putting another 1,000 lorry drivers on the road. We, the consumers, are obviously funding this colossal waste of effort thanks to the EU. Now it could be argued that if our drivers do not have a CPC they could be banned from driving in the EU. Two responses to that argument:

1 Why should UK drivers who only drive on UK roads have to comply with driving qualifications imposed by another, foreign, country? Why stop at EU rules? Why not make them comply with Mexico's standards or Venezuela’s and Indian driving licence requirements? It is clearly ridiculous and is another example of where there is a problem, such as the lorry driver shortage, it is made worse by another EU imposed regulation that is at fault. The tosspots in government and the civil service are also hugely at fault for not abolishing it.

2 Secondly, if the EU bans UK lorry drivers who do not have a CPC then the UK should ban EU drivers who have not met UK driving licence requirements and qualified for a UK HGV licence. This will probably mean all cross channel goods being made in trailers which are picked up each side of the channel. Good! More work for UK lorry drivers. This also means that the UK could impose the maximum lorry size we had before joining the EU. This would reduce wear and tear on the roads and minimise huge lorries going through our cities.

There must be literally hundreds of other examples including the BBC ‘poll tax’ licence fee, climate change scam, House of Lords and Life Peers, ‘woke’ culture wasting police time etc., etc.

The problem is of course in getting the tax paying public to mass together and demand change. The only way is for a new party to take over government, but the number of new parties is preventing that from happening. They must combine together to create a force for change. Their performance in recent by-elections has been pitiful, even when their results are combined. What is needed is a recognition of the need for them to get together, combine forces and review their campaigning strategy, particularly to promote more benefits to taxpayers

Yours etc.,

VLAKPLAAS

A long-standing supporter has recently given us a copy of the book “Vlakplaas” by Robin Binckes (published by Pen and Sword Books Ltd., ISBN 978 1 526729 21 7). This book purports to tell the story of the operations of the counter-terrorism division of the South African Police during the final decade and a half of civilised rule in South Africa, when their main operating base was a farmstead called “Vlakplaas” in the south-western Transvaal.

Although written from a pro-terrorist perspective, this book gives a fascinating account of the tactics and operations employed by the SAP’s counter-terrorism division (subsequently named the Civil Cooperation Bureau or CCB), with its central character being Lt.Col. Eugene de Kock, who was Commander of the SAP’s counter-terrorism division from 1985 until the final days of the true South Africa in 1993. Lt.Col. de Kock was in reality a true hero of the South African nation and people and its struggle to maintain civilised standards, and was featured in the article “Top Policeman Framed” which appeared in edition No.33 of S.A.Patriot-in-Exile.

There are several facets of this book which make its complete veracity doubtful however. It is stated that Blacks could not own property or vote in South Africa during the days of civilised rule (they could, albeit only within their own group areas), it stated that the wretched Peter Hain was a Liberal MP in the UK when he was staging his anti-South African campaigns (he was never a Liberal MP – he was a Labour MP, but only after South Africa had fallen). There are furthermore great doubts about its claims that the SAP’s counter-terrorism division was responsible for the assassinations of both the NP’s candidate for Springs at the 1977 General Election Robert Smit and the Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme. Smit was almost certainly killed by a hit squad hired by a faction within the NP which included Dr.Nico Diedrichs who Smit had discovered were illegally transferring money out of the country into numbered Swiss bank accounts, and Palme was almost certainly killed by Kurdish militants.

In spite of these obvious flaws and falsehoods, the main thrust of this book has an air of truth and accuracy about it. The SAP’s counter-terrorism division and the CCB which it became was certainly very effective in accounting for the main controllers of ANC terrorist operations (who on the whole were White rather than Black), disrupting ANC activities overseas, and “turning” formed ANC minions into loyal citizens of the South African nation. By so doing they were actually winning South Africa’s War against Terrorism, and this War would undoubtedly have been won completely if there had been the political will to continue it to its conclusion.

Lt.Col. de Kock and all his other SAP and CCB colleagues were therefore great heroes of the South African struggle, and therefore deserve to be honoured and remembered, rather than being demonised, as this book wickedly tends to do. Perhaps the most telling revelation about the true worth and greatness of Lt.Col. de Kock comes at the end of the book however, when it tells how after he was disgustingly imprisoned by the ANC terrorist regime he was visited in jail by one of his former Koevoet (“turned” terrorist operatives) who brought his young son with him, and revealed that he had named him “Eugene de Kock” in honour of his former boss who he admired so much. This surely shows clearly that the operations of the SAP counter-terrorism division and the CCB were not aimed at Blacks per se, but at ANC terrorists, who were both Black and White!

Given all the unquestionable effectiveness of the SAP/CCB counter-terrorism operations throughout the 1980s it is therefore more dumbfounding than ever why the NP sell-outs – and more especially the na├»ve and cowardly White electorate – were prepared to surrender their country and the future well-being of their children to the ANC terrorists in the early 1990s!

February 2022 Edition.

SPRINGBOK CYBER NEWSLETTER

February 2022 edition

The British Government of Boris Johnson is currently facing great criticism for holding staff parties at 10 Downing Street. The reaction of all sensible, rational people to these criticisms is “So What! What on earth’s wrong with holding a party?”.

But Johnson’s Government does however warrant severe criticism – not for holding parties, but for introducing ridiculous legislation banning everyone from gathering together for any reason whatever! The reason why this lunatic legislation was introduced was allegedly to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus, but as anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of physics and biology knows a virus is simply a single-celled organism which is so minute and so light that it floats around in the atmosphere regardless of how many people may be gathered together in close proximity, and that all but those with low immunity (less than 0.03% of the population) can be “infected” by the virus with practically no signs or symptoms whatsoever! One is therefore left aghast as to why such unjustified and unscientific legislation banning parties and other gatherings was ever introduced in the first place!

Many have argued that as so many members of the British population “obeyed” these idiotic laws then the Government is to be severely castigated for not “obeying” their own rules. But of course most British people have a few grey-cells in their heads and did not comply with all this nonsense in private. To be sure many people were intimidated by “Little Hitlers” into complying with these draconian regulations in public, and alas all too many of them seem to have sheepishly gone along with this lunacy without thinking, when a bit more widespread defiance would have made all the restrictions unworkable. To those who meekly complied but who now complain about parties being held in Downing Street whilst they stupidly obeyed the rules, all we can say is “more fool you!”.

But there has been something far more sinister and disturbing at play here. When Boris Johnson ascended to the Premiership he did so with much goodwill from the bulk of the population, but almost immediately the high hopes which he engendered were shattered when he announced the composition of his Cabinet, which showed that we no longer lived under a British Government, but under a United Nations one! It has furthermore been the foreigners within the so-called “British” Government who have been mainly responsible for the most catastrophic measures which they’ve blamed upon the Covid-19 virus. All the largess dolled out for furlough schemes etc were very nice for the recipients of course, but this economic irresponsibility has had only one predictable result, namely financial disaster for the country, and a urgent need for massively increased taxation and a steep rise in the cost of living. One is left wondering therefore whether these foreign cabinet ministers and government advisors had a secretive demonic plan to undermine the country in which they currently reside, but which is not their own!

In spite of all the initial high hopes for Johnson’s premiership, it is now most welcome that there are so many calls from within the Conservative Parliamentary caucus for him to go – albeit that by citing the “Partygate” issue this has clearly been for the wrong reason. What the UK urgently now requires is a new Prime Minister who is British, who puts British interests first, and who appoints a cabinet and advisors who are themselves fully British!

SPRINGBOK CLUB NEWS

The Springbok Club staged a most enjoyable double celebration for both Burns Night and Australia Day last month. After a sumptuous haggis supper to celebrate Burns Night Mr. Gary Vincent gave a fascinating PowerPoint presentation about the ships which took part in the first settlement of Australia in 1788. This was then followed by a number of those present journeying on to the near-by bust of Admiral Arthur Phillip (who founded the settlement at Sydney and became the first Governor of New South Wales) in the City of London where the original version of the Australian National Anthem was sung. It was of course by that time Australia Day in Australia itself!

----------------------------

The Springbok Club will be holding a Zoom meeting to be addressed by a prominent Southern African later during February, with fuller details to be circulated to all members and supporters once arrangements have been finalised. The Springbok Club’s 2022 AGM will be held in March (to be followed by another well-researched PowerPoint presentation), and in April the organisation will be staging a trip to a London museum of great interest. Further details about both these events will of course be detailed in next month’s SCN.

PATRIOTIC FORUM NEWS

The Patriotic Forum will be holding a most interesting Zoom meeting later this month, the details of which are as follows :-

Date : Sunday 13th February 2022

Time: Join meeting from 11:45 hrs GMT onwards, meeting to commence at 12.00 noon GMT (07.00 hrs EST North America, 13.00 hrs Central European Time, 14.00 hrs South African Time, 23.00 hrs Eastern Australian Time)

Guest Speaker : Ms. Kay A. Shemirani (General Nurse Dip Pers Nutr)

Kay Shemirani is a 56 year-old mother of four young adult children. She first trained as a nurse in 1984, and then travelled the world for almost a decade as a stewardess with British Airways, before becoming a mum. In 2012 she was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, and three separate studies indicated that she had zero chances of survival past five years. This was to change her entire life, as she managed to to remain cancer-free a decade later by refusing the treatments offered by so-called experts! She began studying dietary healing and the effects of food, water, the environment and emotions on our health and well-being. This led her to work on local and now international radio stations as a health and well-being expert. The Covid “con” catapulted her to "notoriety" in the mainstream media, but her vision remains the same - a complete overhaul of the health-care system, the avoidance of chronic disease, and its reversal without the need of big Pharma.

MESSAGE FROM THE NETWORK FOR ANIMALS ORGANISATION

We have recently received the following most worrying message from the Network for Animals organisation, which illustrates how important it is for the countries of the West to re-assert control in Southern Africa to prevent further wildlife disasters :-

“Right now, Cape fur seals are in crisis!

”Thousands are washing up on the shores of the Western Cape, in South Africa - some already dead, and others sick or injured. All are emaciated. When you imagine a seal, you think of a fat, well-covered and insulated animal. These seals are just skin and bone, with no blubber at all to provide them with protection or sustenance when food is unavailable.

“They are desperate for life-saving food! No one knows what is causing this die-off, but the consequences are devastating for baby seals. They literally need to be fattened up if they are to survive. There is one small seal rehabilitation center in Cape Town, the Hout Bay Seal Rescue Centre (HBSRC), which is being overwhelmed by the crisis. There is a shortage of suitable fish to feed the seals and they have almost completely run out of food. We must source the fish elsewhere and RUSH THE EMERGENCY FOOD to the seals.

“Autopsies reveal that their stomachs are completely empty! The seals are STARVING TO DEATH!

“The sudden rapid increase in dead and sickly seals is baffling scientists and deeply worrying. The seals have been washing up on the shores for months and no one knows why.

“HBSRC Operations Director, Kim Krynauw, has been running the centre since 2019 with the help of a small team and many dedicated volunteers. They are completely inundated. Nothing could have prepared them for the tragedy that is currently unfolding. The centre has been receiving four to five sick seals a day for months - that’s over 100 sick and dying animals a month - and they have been working around the clock to treat, medicate and feed these poor distressed animals. Sadly, some have already died, but we hope that by providing more food and support to the center, we can help more of these seals to live and ultimately be released back into the ocean.

“We are committed to helping these poor creatures to survive, but we can’t do it without YOUR HELP. Seals are dying right now – will you help us save them?

“It is a race against time to find the root cause of seal deaths and we are doing everything we can to help the situation. Essential investigation, research and medical testing is currently being done to determine any underlying health concerns in the marine ecosystem, but more work is needed to bring this tragedy to an end as quickly as possible.

“We need to raise $6,000 (£4,500) to feed these starving seals. Forty seals eat about ONE TON of fish per month, and with all the seals the center is receiving, they are struggling to keep up. They are desperate for food and supplies to help feed the starving and treat the sick.

“We can’t stand to let them suffer any longer. They deserve a chance to survive, and to live free and happily in the ocean!

”For the animals,

“Brian and Gloria Davies (and Max and Flora!) – Founders, Network for Animals”

EXETER CHIEFS

When the Rugby club now known as Exeter Chiefs was founded in 1871 they were known simply as Exeter Rugby Football Club. In 1999, however, they re-branded themselves as Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club and adopted a logo and other symbols featuring Native American Redskins.

This move annoyed many Rugby fans as they couldn’t see why a club based in Devon wanted to identify with a people who lived thousands of miles away, and furthermore were a primitive people who possessed few virtues worthy of association. Surely, many supporters thought, the club could have adopted a new image associated with a member of the animal kingdom or a historical British group or entity? In spite of these objections the club retained the demeaning Native American symbolism for the next 20 years, but then, bizarrely, far more angry objections were made from an unlikely source, namely from a Native American governing body (supported by the inevitable “politically correct” trouble-makers) who complained that the adoption of the name and logo was a case of “cultural appropriation” – a terrible sin in their eyes!

After a couple of years of praise-worthy defiance to the demands of those with absolutely no connection to the club, the board has recently announce that they intend to drop all Native American Redskin symbolism later this year – but to retain the name of “Exeter Chiefs” and to associate it from now onwards with the Kings of Dumnonia, an ancient civilised Keltic tribe who ruled Devon and much of south-west Britain during pre-Roman times. Although it is always annoying when the “politically correct brigade” seem to achieve a victory, but what has actually happened is that which all British patriots and true Rugby fans really wished had happened in 1999 – and so we can therefore only welcome this development!

------------------------------------------------------------------

TONGA

Although there is obviously no ethnic connection between the British and Tongan people, there has for long been a close affinity and friendship between the two peoples.

Nobody who can remember Queen Elizabeth’s Coronation can possibly forget the presence of Queen Salote Tupou III of Tonga, who insisted that the hood of her carriage was not raised in spite of the heavy rain, so that she could then wave at the adoring crowds. Tonga also was one of the few colonies in the British Empire which did not want to lose its colonial status, and had to be forced to accept full independence by the Labour Government of Harold Wilson. Britain and Tonga of course share a common love of Rugby Football, and astonishingly Tonga is the only country in the world where Methodism is the national religion!

The recent eruption of the Hunga Volcano in the Pacific Ocean a few miles north of Tonga, which has evidently caused massive devastation in the islands, therefore has engendered more sympathy among the British people than would have occurred if the eruption had happened practically anywhere else in the “third world”. We therefore wish the Tongan people well in recovering from the volcanic disruption, and call upon the British Government to divert all foreign aid funds away from far less deserving countries and towards Tonga for the foreseeable future, and thereby to help the country restore its infrastructure as quickly as possible.

CALLING ALL FALKLANDS WAR VETERANS

We have recently received the following request from the Falkland Islands Association, which they in turn have received from the British Modern Military History Society. It reads as follows :-

“Calling anyone who was involved in the Falklands War…

“To mark the 40th anniversary next year, the British Modern Military History Society is compiling a book of memories and stories of those who served in the Falklands. The stories can be of any role, any of the services, civilians, Falkland Islanders, those based in the UK or the families of those who served. We would also be interested in any stories from the Argentine perspective too.

“All profits will go to the charity Blind Veterans UK as with our two previous Glimpses of War volumes, published this year. #blindveteransuk #glimpsesofwar

“If you have a story to tell – whether a short anecdote or a longer piece - get in touch with me on andy.cockeram@bmmhs.org or www.bmmhs.org”

HONOURING THE MEMORY OF LEE RIGBY

It was with great admiration that we recently learnt about an annual charity soccer match which has been played since 2016 between ex-Portsmouth players and ex-Rangers players at AFC Portchester’s ground as a memorial match in honour of Drummer Lee Rigby, a British soldier who was murdered by Islamic scum in 2013.

We salute all those who have organised this annual match, and all who have been involved in it. Further details about this match can be found at :-

WHERE ARE THEY NOW ?

No.279 - Mnr. W.A. FOURIE of Pretoria.

Mnr. W.A. Fourie (alas we never knew his Christian names) became a subscriber of S.A.Patriot during the mid-1980s, and remained a good friend of the magazine. He lived in the Sunnyside district of Pretoria, but alas recent editions of the magazine sent to him have been returned to us as his P.O.Box is evidently now closed. If anyone knows where he can now be contacted we would therefore be very keen to know.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

HAMPSTEAD HEATH

Sir,

I remember the incident when a person at a Swinton Circle meeting caused a scene by objecting to Richard Leakey being termed “the only White Man behaving like a White Man in Africa today” well. (See January 2022 SCN – Ed.).

The person responsible for this disruption was a certain Ray Heath: I wouldn’t call him a “moan and groan character” – more a “doom and gloom” defeatist, as he was constantly claiming that there was no hope for the White Man in this country. He was actually nicknamed “Frazer” by Swinton Circle activists at the time (after the character Frazer from Dad’s Army whose catch-phrase was “we’re all doomed, doomed”!) because of his chronic pessimism.

It has for long been my opinion that those who spread such fatalism and hopelessness in Right-wing circles are actually agent provocateurs deliberately infiltrated by the Left in order to dampen the enthusiasm of those willing to fight for their country. I heard rumour that Heath had moved from London to Devon, but then again I’ve also heard that he’s still living in south London. I therefore don’t really know where he now is – and neither do I particularly care.

Yours etc.,

A.Lawrence, Balham, London, U.K.

----------------------------

COMING TO A SHOPPING MALL NEAR YOU SOON

Sir,

Good November SCN!. Yes, there are no jobs in South Africa. I hope the misery culminates into tribal war very soon, indeed they will loot the homes and businesses of every non-Black South African. The South African Black is a lazy arrogant thief by nature and will always blame others for his chaos. I rub my hands in glee and smile, seeing as I know what’s coming; mass looting very soon. All those f*cking liberal Whites who wash the feet of the savages of the ANC then bow before their communist snake god. We told you South Africa back in 1989 what the result would be. Chaos, poverty, factional strife and mass murder is South Africa’s only future.

Yours etc.,

Benny Sparrow, Durban, Natal, South Africa.

----------------------------

CYMRU AM BYTH

Sir,

The November SCN was a good edition once again. I knew a fellow who lived in Australia, a Welshman who lived in Kenya for many years before migrating out to here. He fought against the Mau Mau.

Yours etc.,

Reg A.Watson, Bowden Park, Tasmania, Australia..

PARCEL OF ROGUES

Sir,

I agree that F.W.de Klerk wasn’t alone as a traitor - it was the rotten National Party/NGK/Broederbond establishment! Good riddance!

Yours etc.,

H.Koch, Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa.

----------------------------

TIME’S UP

Sir,

My reply to those who claim that South Africa’s woes are due to “350 years of oppression” - OK, you might have had a bad deal before 1994. You have, however, had 27 years to do something about it.

Yours etc.,

Mark Taylor, Ealing, London, U.K.

SATAN’S SERVANTS - 1

Sir,

F.W.de Kak right now is swimming round in satan’s toilet in hell - with Biko, Hani, Mandela and Slovo, fighting over who gets the biggest turd for lunch! They all were princes of lies and responsible for many thousands of deaths of innocent South Africans for decades. We in the 80s we were waiting for a 5th province to possibly happen, and we would have taken up the gun and rope to fight for it. F.W. de Kak had White spies everywhere in all groups and on every street watching and listening to Whites who wanted to create any kind of 5th province .Special Branch had even spies in Europe listening for any info’ of some group that wanted to fund such adventures. F.W.sold the future of every White child in South Africa to a Black satan communist

Yours etc.,

SATAN’S SERVANTS – 2

Sir,

I watched Tucker's superb piece on the Wuhan Flu military power grab in America. I just got back to Thailand, but from my 7 months in the USA, I can say that there is good news and bad news about removing the Biden Administration:

The good news is that the Biden Administration's policies have been so disastrous (especially in terms of inflation and economics) that it is possible that the Biden Administration will simply implode from policies which could never work and remove itself, given enough time.

The bad news is that the Biden Administration may irreparably harm America in the process and financially wipe out a huge number of families and businesses who will never recover.

Well, disastrous Presidents have disastrous results.

How sad it is that much of the American public will only figure it out when the true poverty of socialism/communism reaches and destroys their own pocketbooks, as it has in all major countries it ever reached.

...hmm. Communism in America. Well, I guess that is what I personally call "Satanism."

Yours etc.,

Prof. Jason Jellison, Bangkok, Thailand

----------------------------

GOOD TURNS

Sir,

I enjoyed reading the November SCN.

In support of what you have written about "turned" Mau Mau, I would remind you that the Selous Scounts in Rhodesia had much the same experience. If you have time, and care to do so, please watch the revealing video on the following link::-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oL8CEp8dGiU&ab_channel=JohnvanZyl

The first 75 minutes are about ZIPRA terrorist training. I recommend you start watching from 1hr.14min.52sec which deals with this man's change when he met Lt Col Reid-Daly, OC Selous Scouts.

Change of topic, I watched the ridiculous parliamentary committee's investigation into the Rafiq saga, as well as a panel discussion on Al Jazeera TV, and fully agree with your views on this subject

Yours etc.,

Johan Geelvink, Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa

REMEMBERING MIKE SKELLY

There can have been few greater heroes of the patriotic struggle in Durban during the 1980s than Michael “Mike” Skelly.

Although born in South Africa, he was brought up in Australia where his father had taken up an appointment in local government. Shortly after he returned to South Africa however, realising the affinity between those of British ethnic stock in all parts of the world, he joined and became active with the Durban Branch of the Save Rhodesia Campaign, even though he was only in his late teens at the time. He and his good colleague Hilton Spence become some of the first people to see through the notorious Brendan Willmer, who had usurped total control over the Save Rhodesia Campaign, and left the organisation to affiliate with the White Rhino Club (Mk 1). Here he became closely involved with the launching of the organisation’s magazine, S.A.Patriot, becoming one of the publication’s leading supporters and also drawing cartoons which became a regular feature of the magazine.

Following the collapse of the White Rhino Club (Mk 1) and the coalescence of several other Durban-based patriotic bodies and party branches to form the Patriotic Forum (Mk.1) during the mid-1980s, Mike Skelly proved himself to be one of the most loyal, dedicated and reliable members of the new organisation. It is no exaggeration to say that without his constant support and activism the White resistance movement opposing integration attempts by the increasingly Left-wing dominated Durban City Council would not have been nearly so dynamic.

But above all Mike Skelly was a thoroughly decent, friendly and honest person, and it is impossible to think that he ever had any enemies – even among his political opponents. He was also a great sports enthusiast, and fully appreciated the importance of active sport to the patriotic political struggle. He was an accomplished Lawn Tennis and Squash Rackets player, and was also a keen swimmer and cyclist. He furthermore was a loyal fan of all Natal sides, regularly attending Natal matches at both Rugby Union and Cricket. Although he never married he seemed never to be without a girlfriend, the closest being Anne Russell, a divorced woman a couple of years older than him who was also an active supporter of the patriotic movement in Durban, and who he returned to time and time again.

Mike Skelly was a health inspector by profession, but he was also a keen proponent of homoeopathic medicine, and resigned from his position with the Durban City Council in order to study homoeopathy at the Natal Technikon in 1989. This move, alas, was to result in his untimely death, for so convinced was he that homoeopathic remedies could cure diabetes that he experimented upon himself in this regard for his final thesis, and tragically died as a result in 1996, shortly prior to his planned relocation to the UK. He was only in his late 30s.

A fuller tribute to Mike Skelly appeared in edition No.35 of S.A.Patriot (by then re-branded as S.A.Patriot-in-Exile), copies of which are still available on request. It would however be very interesting to learn what has become of Hilton Spence (who evidently moved to up-State New York where his father was practicing as a GP) and to Anne Russell.

January 2022 Edition.

SPRINGBOK CYBER NEWSLETTER

January 2022 edition

The outcome of the trial of the vandals who toppled the statue of Edward Colston in Bristol was without doubt one of the most perverse, disgusting and obscene “verdicts” in the history of British jurisprudence.

It was not so much the fact that the self-confessed hooligans who attacked this fine piece of public commemorative sculpture were sickeningly found “not guilty”, but the fact that they tried to justify their criminal actions by claiming that they were on the side of “good”. Edward Colston was described by his contemporaries as “a wise and virtuous man”, a description which was repeated almost two centuries later as an inscription on the plinth of his statue when it was erected in 1895. If the toppling of a statue to a man who was regarded as “wise and virtuous”, who brought great prosperity to the British nation and who bequeathed schools, hospitals and almshouses to the people of Bristol, can be regarded by both the perpetrators of this diabolical act and at least two jury members at their trial as being “good”, then quite clearly – to paraphrase Marcellus in Hamlet – there is something rotten in today’s State of Britain!

But before anyone argues that jury trials are a traditional part of the British justice system, and that their verdicts must be respected regardless of any personal opinions, one most important fact should be remembered. Prior to 1972 jury members in Britain had to be property owners, ipso facto they therefore had to be British. It only needs two jury members to refuse to allow a guilty verdict to be passed, so it is therefore highly likely that the proper verdict was not passed in the trial of those who vandalised the statue of our great national hero Edward Colston only because of a couple of non-Britons, who for one reason or another harboured a hatred for the country in which they resided.

It is also important to remember that the middle phase of the Triangular Atlantic Trade system which Edward Colston, along with many other sea-faring entrepreneurs, practiced involved the purchasing of negroes from West African warlords who had captured them after defeating rival tribes, and who would have had them butchered if it wasn’t for their purchase and subsequent transportation to a new life in the New World. To be sure, their new life of enslavement wasn’t utopian, but it was obviously the lesser of two evils. In this regard it is therefore poignant to note that those negroes who were instrumental in the toppling of Edward Colston’s statue wouldn’t have been alive to do this if their ancestors hadn’t been rescued from a certain horrific death by the likes of Edward Colston. Makes you think, doesn’t it!

There are now therefore three important changes which all true British patriots should campaign for :- 1) A reversion to the pre-1972 qualifications for jury members (i.e. a property qualification which will mean that foreigners will no longer be eligible to serve on British juries). 2) The restoration of Edward Colston’s statue in Bristol to its previous position of prominence, and the erection of similar statues to other great British heroes and philanthropic benefactors in other towns and cities across the land. 3) A reform of the education system so that the true facts about British history are taught and our heroes honoured, rather than the teaching of the “politically correct” lies which are currently being spewed out in an attempt to brainwash our kids.

SPRINGBOK CLUB NEWS

Unfortunately the onset of new draconian “lockdown” restrictions meant that the Springbok Club’s Kent Branch wasn’t able to commemorate the Day of the Vow last month as originally planned..

----------------------------

The Springbok Club will be holding a joint celebration of Burns Night and Australia Day later this month, the details for which are as follows :-

Date : Tuesday 25th January 2022

Times : Assemble from 18.30 onwards. Meal to commence at 19.00 hrs

Venue : The Sir John Hawkshaw (a Wetherspoons pub), Unit 3, Cannon Street Station, Cannon Street, London EC4N 6AP.

This event will consist of firstly a traditional haggis meal and recitations. A section of the pub has been reserved for the Springbok Club party to the left of the main entrance, which will be identified by an arrangement of blue chairs. After the meal and other festivities have been completed, at approximately 21.00 hrs, the party will move on to the near-by bust honouring Admiral Arthur Phillip (who founded the settlement at Sydney and became the first Governor of New South Wales) where due respects will be paid and the original version of the Australian National Anthem will be sung. It will of course be Australia Day in Australia itself by that time!

----------------------------

The Springbok Club will be holding a Zoom meeting to be addressed by a prominent South African journalist in the near future. Fuller details will of course be given in future editions of the SCN.

------------------------------------------------------------------

PATRIOTIC FORUM NEWS

The Patriotic Forum is planning a Zoom meeting featuring a prominent Covid sceptic and anti-compulsory-vaccination activist towards the end of January, and needless to say full details will be circulated to all members and supporters as soon as details have been finalised.

----------------------------

In early February the Patriotic Forum will be holding another Zoom meeting to be addressed by a New Zealand patriot in order to mark New Zealand Day. Further information about this event will be forwarded to all members and supporters in due course.

MESSAGE FROM THE FAUNA & FLORA INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATION

We have recently received the following most worrying message from the Fauna & Flora International organisation, which illustrates how important it is for the countries of the West to re-assert control in order to prevent further wildlife exterminations :-

“Rhinos – and how humanity broke them,

“It’s made of the same stuff as our fingernails. That fact is the real gut punch that makes this crisis all so impossibly heart-breaking. But the facts are the facts. Rhino horn - the item for which the world’s rhino population has been almost annihilated - is by all scientific measures a medicinally useless substance, and yet the destruction that demand for this product has caused, and is still threatening to cause today, beggars belief.

“Every single western black rhino is dead. All but 2 northern white rhinos are dead. All but around 900 or so eastern black rhinos are dead. We must end the poaching.

“A rhino's defences against natural threats are virtually impregnable, but they’re worthless against a bullet - and it only takes a glance to see that rhinos aren’t exactly creatures who specialise in stealth.

“So faced up against heavily armed poachers, they don’t stand a chance. They need our rangers’ defences - brave men and women who are willing to check on every rhino, every week, and defend them from the lurking threat.

“With your support, we can give those rangers the equipment they need to do that. From boots, to canine support units, to scout equipment - if they have the necessary tools provided by people like you, it means they can focus on the task at hand and safely defend these wonderful animals.

“Right now, the story of what humanity did to rhinos is horrible. Absolutely horrible. But - because of people like you - we are on the cusp of turning that around. We’re on the cusp of actually saving them.”

SOLIDARITY WITH NOVAK DJOKOVIC

Novak Djokovic of Serbia is currently ranked as the world’s No.1 male Lawn Tennis player. He has won 20 Grand Slam singles titles, including winning the Australian Open 9 times. He is the current Australian Singles Champion. Yet in spite of all his achievements the Australian authorities have decided to deport him from the country, and thereby to prevent him from defending his title.

So why was this? Has he been guilty of some crime? Has he tested positive for some performance-enhancing drug? Has he been involved in some betting coup? No, his “crime” was to have entered the country without having the decreed anti-Covid-1984 vaccinations.

Novak Djokovic has proved to be a bit of a Covid-sceptic – though not as fundamentally so as many would have liked him to be, as he has alas often been photographed wearing one of those ridiculous facemasks. He has however been forthright in his opposition to compulsory vaccinations, and for this stance in favour of individual freedom he must surely be congratulated.

But there has been another most important revelation which has emerged from his victimisation. He has twice “tested positive” for the Covid-19 virus – yet he has never displayed any symptoms! Such a illogical situation seems however to have been commonplace with the vast majority of people who have “tested positive” for the virus, and as a result have been forced to “isolate”. Surely if there are no symptoms then there is no disease – and so the whole international paranoia about what is self-evidently a relatively innocuous virus has been shown to be a wild over-reaction!

Novak Djokovic is a great Lawn Tennis player, but perhaps his more important contribution to the world is that he has highlighted – albeit only in a limited manner – the entire demonic nature of all the Covid-1984 hysteria. Those who ruled in favour of his deportation have brought great shame on the great nation of Australia. Novak Djokovic’s name will however live on in the world’s Hall of Fame long after the names of those idiots who ordered his deportation are forgotten!

------------------------------------------------------------------

SUCCESS FOR PATRIOTIC FORUM CAMPAIGN

The recent government announcement that the BBC licence fee is to be phased out over the next five years represents a triumph for a long-standing Swinton Circle (now part of the Patriotic Forum of course) campaign. Initiated way back in the late 1980s by Swinton Circle/Patriotic Forum stalwart Brian Danes, the aim of this campaign was to have the BBC licence fee abolished entirely, so that the organisation would then have to pay its own way, and thereby hopefully would no longer be a vehicle for “politically correct” bias.

Brian Danes was tenacious in his monitoring of left-wing bias in BBC programmes, and of the numbers of non-White foreigners who appeared on BBC screens – particularly as newsreaders. He circulated the Fact-Sheets which he produced as a result of this monitoring widely, with the campaign gaining great publicity and influence in high places – which was confirmed when he was granted a sympathetic interview with John Whittingdale when he was Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport. Congratulations must therefore be extended to Brian Danes and other Swinton Circle/Patriotic Forum activists for their determination in promoting this campaign.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW ?

No.278 - Mnr. GERT CRONJE of Nigel

Gert Cronje from Nigel in the Transvaal made contact with us shortly after we were forced to leave South Africa and to re-establish operations in exile, and became a subscriber to S.A.Patriot-in-Exile as a result. Alas very little else is known about him, but the latest edition of The Imperial Patriot which was sent to him has now been returned as the P.O.Box in Nigel where he operated from has evidently now been closed. Needless to say, if anyone could let us know where he can now be contacted we would be most grateful.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

CONGO HERE WE COME

Sir,

When the terrorist nation “Azania” and their retarded leper voters who support this failed state starve and mass food riots start, we the expats will be laughing with glee. I just watched a Scott and Jan Lamprecht speech on Loving Life TV from Australia for 90 mins. The pre-planned crime on the White and Indian communities in South Africa is rising ten-fold. My parents must be very deluded to retire in that filthy kaffir terrorist kraal of a country. South Africa in 2021 is a case of the Congo in the 1960s.

YELLOW PERIL

Sir,

The Chinese Communist Party knows that the easiest way to defeat a country isn't with bullets or bombs. The easiest way to defeat a country is to control it from within, and it's been trying - and in some cases successfully - for many years to control Australia this way. Watch this episode of China Unscripted for more on the Australia-China relationship, the importance of Taiwan to Australia's sovereignty, and the effect China's sanctions have had on Australia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BsgaiC7Xlg

Archbishop Tutu, the poison monkey, is dead. Gone to satan’s toilet bowl with Biko and Hani. Tutu had “gay” priests and “gay” weddings at his church. Loved terrorists; Debauched pervert!

Yours etc.,

OBITUARY

RICHARD ERSKINE FRERE LEAKEY

It was with great sadness that we learnt of the recent death of Richard Leakey, the internationally renowned paleoanthropologist, conservationist and political activist. Born at Nairobi in 1944, Richard Leakey was a true and esteemed son of the British Empire. His parents, Louis and Mary Leakey, were internationally respected paleoanthropologists who had discovered many fossils and bones of early humanoids in Tanganyika, but although Richard was eventually to follow in their footsteps in this line he eschewed more formal education and was largely self-taught in the subject.

Richard’s own paleoanthropologic discoveries and the theories which he advanced as a result of them were to prove ground-breaking however, and he demonstrated clearly the fundamentally differing routes of human evolution from the apes and homo-erectus – a subject which of course was very controversial in post-independence Africa! Richard Leakey was a courageous and determined man however, and unlike most other British Imperial administrators and entrepreneurs he remained in Kenya after premature independence was granted in 1963, even though there were many threats against his life.

As well as pursuing his studies of paleoanthropology, becoming acutely aware of the catastrophic destruction of wildlife taking place in post-independence Kenya, he increasingly devoted his life to environmental conservation. Through his high international reputation and the sheer force of his personality he surprisingly managed to gain the respect of and influence over the new Black rulers of Kenya, and was appointed Director of the National Museums of Kenya and the head of the Kenyan Wildlife Service. In the latter role he had to deal with rampant corruption and inefficiency in the service, but managed to turn it around, with his most famous and praise-worthy achievement being the curtailment of the ivory trade by the widely-publicised destruction of a massive pile of captured elephant tusks.

Richard Leakey’s relationship with the Black Kenyan president Daniel Arap Moi was always frosty, but Moi and other Black leaders gradually came to realise that it was in their own and their country’s best interest to gain a good international reputation, and thus to encourage the tourist trade, rather than continuing to drive its wildlife into extinction. At one stage, however, Richard Leakey became so frustrated with the corruption and inefficiency of the Kenyan civil service that he founded his own political party, Safina (“Ark”), which in spite of being led by a White Man obtained so much popularity among Black voters that Richard Leakey was eventually appointed Cabinet Secretary by Moi. As a result Kenya undoubtedly became for a while one of the best governed countries in Black Africa, and Kenya’s prosperity rose as a result.

Richard Leakey’s unlikely successes in the political and environmental spheres in Kenya led to him gaining a very high reputation throughout the Western world – and across the political spectrum! At a Swinton Circle meeting held in London during the mid-1990s, just after the tame surrender of South Africa, it was asserted that “Richard Leakey is about the only White Man behaving like a White Man in Africa today”. Although there was disruptive opposition to this remark from one unfortunate “moan and groan” character present, it was however greeted with full approval by the meeting as a whole.

Richard Leakey was a great scientist, a great conservationist and a great human being. His memory will live on as an inspiration for all who wish to see civilised norms return to the African continent Our sincerest condolences are extended to his widow and to his three daughters.
