July 2003 Edition.


July 2003 edition

On July 1st an estimated half-a-million demonstrators protested in Hong Kong against the imposition of the notorious Article 23 "anti-subversion" legislation and the administration of Tung Chee-hwa. They also voiced their anger at the decline of Hong Kong since the end of British colonial rule in 1997, and during the course of the demonstration the [communist] Chinese flag was burnt.

The clear sub-text of this demonstration was that communist Chinese administration had proved a disaster, and that the average Hong Kong citizen was infinitely better off under British rule.

Such a sentiment expressed by an Asiatic people is of course similar to the recent reactions of the Iraqi people, the vast majority of whom were euphoric in their welcome for the Western forces as the liberators which they were.

It has not only been in Asia where this clear longing for a return of civilised Western rule has manifested itself however. Ian Douglas Smith has often mentioned how he is constantly being approached by Blacks in Zimbabwe who tell him how much better off their families were when he was in power, and we have also heard of two separate occasions in Natal when BLACK anti-ANC demonstrators have proudly waved the real South African flag as an act of defiance.

Consciously or sub-consciously (probably the latter) most non-Whites around the world are aware of how much better life was under European colonial rule, and long for its return. Alas there doesn't appear to the will in most European nations to re-establish their natural and rightful duty of governing the world - though recent Western interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq and certain African countries perhaps shows that with the dawn of the new millennium the tide is quickly turning in this regard (certainly as far as some Western nations are concerned!).

Unfortunately the situation in South Africa itself seems certain to become increasing worse on its path towards Zimbabwean ruin before the nations of the West are prepared to intervene, and many more innocent Whites (and members of other races for that matter) are bound to die in the ensuing chaos. Our advice to all White South Africans therefore still remains the same, namely to leave the disintegrating country by any means possible as soon as they can, as in the immediate future the risk to their lives will continue to increase.

In the long term, however, perhaps we are at last starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel.



The Springbok Club will be staging a most interesting and informative meeting in July, which will consist of a report-back by Raymond Simpson on his recent trip back to Cape Town and the Western Cape, and to which all supporters and friends are cordially invited. The details are as follows:-

Date : Thursday 17th July 2003

Time : 19.15 hrs for 19.45 hrs.

Venue : The MORPETH ARMS (the upstairs Function Room), 58 Millbank, Westminster, London SW1 (close to the Tate Gallery and Vauxhall Bridge - nearest tube station: Pimlico).



As many readers will probably know, the summer braai allegedly arranged by the Kent Branch of the Springbok Club encountered severe problems. This braai was chaotically organised by the current Chairman of the Kent Branch, Robert Shipley, who bizarrely didn't even turn up to the event himself! Although several supporters both from the London and Chiltern Branches of the SC journeyed considerable distances to attend, the number of supporters from Kent itself who attended was negligible, and it subsequently transpired that very few of them had been contacted by Mr. Shipley to remind them that the event was taking place. Even more worryingly the patron of the establishment where the braai took place is justifiably asking for some form of financial compensation to cover his losses resulting from the unexpectedly low turnout. (Mr. Shipley had assured him that a far more people were certain to attend than actually turned up, and more staff and facilities were provided for the afternoon as a result.)

Mr. Shipley neither replied to 'phone messages prior to the event, nor has he given any subsequent explanation for the severe damage which he has caused. It may well be that Mr. Shipley has some valid excuse for his negation of duty, but until such an explanation is forthcoming the Executive Committee of the Springbok Club has decided to suspend (not expel) Mr. Shipley from all official positions within the organisation. He therefore should no longer be regarded as having any authority to speak on behalf of the Springbok Club.

It has also been decided to call an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Springbok Club during August, when Mr. Shipley's position (and a number of far happier matters!) will be discussed.



Over the past few months it has become more and more obvious that surprisingly few people in South Africa itself are aware of the activities of the Springbok Club. Those who are inevitable tell us that they are inspired and encouraged to learn of the active support which they still possess overseas during their current plight. We have therefore decided to initiate a publicity campaign aimed at our White South African kith-and-kin to let them know that they have not been forgotten, and to tell them a bit about the Springbok Club. We have the names of almost 1200 South Africans on our lists who we would like to circulate. With standard postage from the UK being almost 50p, plus the cost of printing a brochure, we estimate that the total cost for this exercise with be approximately £700. We hope therefore that you may be able to help us financially to achieve this aim.

All donations to this campaign (made payable to "Patriotic Press" - contributions in all major currencies are acceptable) should be sent to: The Springbok Club, BCM SAPAT, London WC1N 3XX, U.K.



The London Swinton Circle held two highly successful and well attended meetings during the last month. The first was addressed by the Rt. Hon. Eric Forth MP (the Shadow Leader of the House of Commons), who gave a masterful overview of the current state of the Blair government, and the dangers posed by the proposed EU constitution. The second was addressed by Mr. Ashley Mote who spoke on "Britain's Immigration Crisis" (a timely subject, as according to the 2001 Census as much as 6.8% of the UK's population is now non-White.)

Later this month the London Swinton Circle will hold their annual summer buffet which will be addressed by the Rt. Hon. Ann Widdecombe MP. All tickets for this event have now been sold, but a full report of this meeting will be given in August's SCN.



There has evidently been some confusion about the precise dates of Malcolm Wren's "Soul Walk". It is confirmed, therefore, that this will take place between Sunday 27th July and Thursday 7th August.

Malcolm, widely know as the "Engelse Boer", will be doing this 150 mile walk from Avonmouth on the banks of the Severn to Gravesend on the banks of the Thames. He will be placing 1500 gold-and-green (Springbok colours) ribbons - 10 per mile - for each person, each "Soul", murdered in the vicious farm attacks which have occurred in South Africa since 1994. The purpose of this exercise is not to raise funds, but rather to draw attention to the GENOCIDE campaign against South African (particularly Afrikaner) farmers which is currently taking place. Malcolm will be joined for the length of his walk by another good friend of the Springbok Club, Anthony LoBaido (the highly-acclaimed American journalist), and perhaps by another supporter.

We hope that as many friends as possible will be able to support and encourage Malcolm and Anthony in this noble endeavour - either by joining them for part of their walk, cheering them along their way, or simply by publicising the event. The full itinerary of the walk is as follows:-

26th July - send-off reception during the evening at the Swan Hotel, Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire.
27th July - set-off from Avonmouth (Andrews Rd/Crowley Way junction), and walk to Warmley via Bristol (A4 & A420).
28th July - walk from Warmley (east Bristol) to the White Hart, Ford, Wiltshire, via the A420, Wick, Marshfield and “The Shoe”.
29th July - walk from the White Hart, Ford, Wiltshire, to the Hayle Farm Hotel, Quemerford, Wiltshire, via the A420 & A4, Chippenham and Calne.
30th July - walk from the Hayle Farm Hotel, Quemerford, Wiltshire, to the Lamb Inn, Marlborough, Wiltshire, via the A4, Beckhampton, West Kennett & Flyfield.
31st July - walk from the Lamb Inn, Marlborough, Wiltshire, to the Ramada Hotel, Halfway Inn, Berkshire, via the A4, Froxfield & Hungerford.
1st Aug. - walk from the Ramada Hotel, Halfway Inn, Berkshire, to the Little Paddocks Guest House, Aldermaston Wharf, Berkshire, via the A4, Newbury & Woolhampton.

3rd Aug. - walk from the Pheasant Inn, Winnersh, Berkshire, to the Ennis Lodge Guest House, Sunninghill, Berkshire (B383) via the A329, Wokingham, Bracknell & Ascot.
4th Aug. - walk from the Ennis Lodge Guest House, Sunninghill, Berkshire (B383) to the Bluebell Mansion, Fulwell Park, London (B358) via the A329, A30, A308, A316 & Staines.
5th Aug. - walk from the Bluebell Mansion, Fulwell Park (B358) to the Diana Hotel, Tulse Hill, London, via the A316 & A205, Twickenham, Richmond, East Sheen, Putney & Wandsworth.
6th Aug. - walk from the Diana Hotel, Tulse Hill, London, to the Aardvark Guest House, Bexley (A220), via the A205 & A2, Dulwich, Catford, & Eltham.
7th Aug. - walk from the Aardvark Guest House, Bexley (A220) to Gravesend, Kent, via the A2 & A227, south Dartford, Bean and Stonewood.

Each day Malcolm and Anthony aim to set out at 9.00 hrs, and to arrive at their destination during the late afternoon, with an approximate one hour’s break for lunch. If you aim to follow their route on any day then simply look out for the gold-and-green ribbons each tenth of a mile to see how far they have progressed.

If you can help Malcolm in in any way, or wish to obtain more informion, then e-mail him at:

FreeUk - Join the Campaign for British Freedom

Britain today is in the throws of the greatest and direst transformation in its history. We are becoming an ideological state, a country with an official state ideology enforced by the power of the government and unelected euro-state bureaucrats in both London and Brussels. Through "hate crimes" trials we now have people serving jail sentences for political thoughts, and the Government and European Union is now moving to expand that category ever further across state and national boundaries.

FreeUk is part of a growing Campaign for British Freedom and we NEED your support. Open to all those concerned about Freedom of Speech in this age of Political Correctness in a society controlled by oppressive and dictatorial left-wing fascists. This elite has come to dominate expression in our institutions - education, the media, arts and government. It is their concerted plan to DECONSTRUCT the United Kingdom which they seek to replace and devolve to the European Super State (a new Soviet for Europe run by unelected, fraudulent bureaucrats).

FreeUK is against all forms of racism because being free in the UK applies to people of all colours and backgrounds. For this reason we seek to highlight "politically correct" racism that is directed against the indigenous people, including the concerted efforts of the Race Relations and Equal Opportunities "industry", whose propaganda is directed at whipping up "race hate" with which they hope to gain more support and power.

No.56 : Ms. JEAN CLEMENTS of Durban.

Jean Clements owned the "Blades Unisex" hairdressing salon in John Milne Road, Durban, and indeed was a former South African hairdressing champion. A highly attractive woman with a charismatic personality, she was of part French Mauritian origin. She had one daughter, Candis, who must now be in her late-teens. A number of her former friends and customers would very much like to be able to make contact with her again.



As this edition of the SCN is being written on the 12th July we thought it appropriate to recommend the official web-site of the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland in this issue. This professionally constructed and highly informative site, giving full details about the history and current position of Orangeism, can be accessed at:-





I heard an interview on our National Programme the other day with the Black cricketer Henry Olonga who wore the armband at the World Cup matches. Basically he conveyed the message that Mugabe is a bit of a tyrant. I later 'phoned the show's producer and basically asked her why that message had to come from a Black sportsman before people would finally believe it. Suffice to say we (Rhodesians) had been trying to do just that for the last 30 years - but of course, we're just a bunch of bloody racists, aren't we?!?

Many thanks for forwarding me a copy of "Why the Left Loves Osama and Saddam" [sent via the Springbok Special Circulation List]. It gave a clear explanation. What is disturbing in talking to these people is their total inability to debate, consider the facts or listen to personal experience. It is quite frightening. The paper described how they automatically embrace anyone who "takes on the US". Mandela is a "saint" and any of his misdemeanours or the excesses of his ANC team are "understandable and excusable". White farmers and their families in Zimbabwe "bought it upon themselves after years of abusing the indigenous peoples". Any hope of debate and discussion to arrive at a reasoned conclusion is, I'm afraid, a pipe dream.

I recently paid a visit to South Africa after 11 years, and took the train to Cape Town. It was not the Bluetrain or Rovosrail as that was beyond our budget. It now costs no less than R18,000.00 for a 2-berth compartment. It is much cheaper to fly or take the Shozolosa Myl, which cost us R1,800.00 for the 4-berth 1st class compartment. We only got food the McDonalds way served in our compartment, but we survived and arrived 27 hours later in Cape Town. From there we took a hire-car and drove to Stellenbosch and along the Garden Route, before we took a flight to Durban from Port Elizabeth.

As I had lived in Durban for a number of years in the 70's we spent quite a few days there, visiting the Sugar Terminal, Umgeni Bird Park and the Sharks Board, etc., and then carried on along the coast to Richards Bay, through Hluhluwe Game Reserve and Swaziland, and then finally back to Johannesburg International Airport for our trip back home to Switzerland.

Travelling intensively like this it was difficult to make an opinion on today's circumstances. What shocked me most was the state of the inner cities of Durban and Johannesburg. The result is intensive building activities at the outskirts, e.g. on the other side of the eastern outer ring road of Jo'burg just across the Freeway from Alexandra there are hundreds of new business buildings, and Umhlanga Ridge north of Durban is a similar example.

Well, I came back home with very mixed feeling. Our last house we stayed in in Robindale, Randburg, is now occupied by an Indian Family and the previous one in Blairgowrie is painted a bright yellow and the roof a bright blue, which points to an Indian family too. On the other hand friends are living behind high walls with razor wire on top, or in areas which are protected with barriers entering their suburbs and security guards patrolling day and night, AND their properties are still protected with electrical barriers. Most of my friends I talked to have been mugged, burgled, car-hijacked or worse. Generally the countryside is still simply magnificient and beautiful, if you are outside cities.

Yours etc.,

A year or so ago we were contacted by an apparent supporter from Washington in the United States who went by the name of "Pastor" Lawrence Blanchard. After he expressed specific interest in the Battle of Blood River - and accepting his bona fides - we sent him an audio-tape about this historical event which we possessed.

More recently, however, this same "Pastor" Blanchard has contacted us again to object to the pro-Western stance which we have taken regarding the War in Iraq. Quite clearly therefore this idiot has totally mistaken what our movement actually stands for, and apparently has been under the erroneous impression that Blood River was somehow a victory by the "poor exploited Blacks" against the "evil White oppressors"! Furthermore, in a more recent antagonistic message to us "Pastor" Blanchard has expressed a paranoid hatred for the State of Israel, which indeed borders on anti-Semitism.

We would be very interested to learn any further information which anyone may know concerning this crank. In the meantime we would advise all supporters to be extremely wary of him.



Sir Dennis Thatcher Bt.

Sir Dennis Thatcher, who died last month, represented everything that was best in the British race. A successful businessman and keen sportsman (being both a top rugby referee and a low-handicap golfer), but it was as the husband of Baroness Thatcher that he will be best remembered. His support for his wife was substantial and vital - though always in the background. A great friend of South Africa during the days of civilised rule, he undoubtedly influenced his wife positively in this respect. He is succeeded to the baronetcy by his son Mark Thatcher. We trust that he will be able to live up to his father's high standards.
