September 2003 Edition.


September 2003 edition

It was probably predictable that now the ANC regime has full control over the country that SABC would devote a whole days' programmes to celebrating the 85th birthday of that godfather of terrorism, "Nelson" Mandela.

The crimes of Mandela which led to his sentence of life imprisonment in 1963 are well documented - his direct involvement in the Johannesburg Railway Station bombing which resulted in the killing and maiming of dozens of innocent people, and being caught red-handed at Rivonia with (to use his own words) "enough explosives to blow up half of Johannesburg". But what is far more damning about Mandela is what happened to South Africa after he was handed power in 1994. Law and Order broke down completely, and as a result South Africa became the "murder capital of the world". Thousands of innocent citizens died as a result of the mayhem, with non-Whites probably suffering worse than Whites. More sinister and heart-rending, however, has been the systematic terrorist-style murder campaign against the White South African farming community. Over 1600 members of the farming community have been slaughtered since Mandela was handed power in 1994, often in the most savage fashion, and often with nothing being stolen. This has accurately been described as a genocide campaign against White South African farmers, and there is much evidence to suggest that this has been orchestrated from higher levels.

There are those who claim that our detestation of Mandela is simply because he is Black. This is not true; it is purely because he is an unreconstructed terrorist. Our detestation is equally strong regarding White terrorists of the IRA and Baader-Meinhof varieties. Furthermore, in the Southern Hemisphere colonial context perhaps the closest comparison to Mandela is the 19th century Australian terrorist Ned Kelly, who of course was also White. Like Kelly Mandela developed a "chip on his shoulder" against the state in which he lived because of his own inadequacies. Like Kelly Mandela vented his hatred against ordinary upholders of law and order and innocent civilians. Like Kelly Mandela was prepared to enact the most sadistic terror tactics against those who he irrationally perceived as his enemies. Here the comparison ends however, for the Australian judiciary rightfully sentenced the terrorist Kelly to death, whereas the more liberal South African judiciary allowed Mandela to live. Many claim that by hanging Kelly the Australian authorities simply turned him into a sick cult-hero - but hasn't the terrorist Mandela also become a sick cult-hero even in spite of being allowed to live?

Few can argue that South Africa - and indeed the world - would be a far better place today if Mandela had received his just deserts for all his terrorist crimes in 1963, and a lot of innocent people who have subsequently been killed would still be alive today as a result - Black as well as White. South Africans would also have been spared the obscenity of a day's programmes on SABC spent glorifying terrorism.



At the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Springbok Club which was called last month a number of important decisions were taken.

The resignation of Mr. Robert Shipley from the Executive Committee was unanimously approved, though great pleasure was also expressed at the fact that he would remain as Chairman of the Kent Branch of the Springbok Club. Mr. Raymond Simpson was then unanimously elected to take his place on the Executive Committee.

In view of the above change certain other movements in official positions became necessary, and as a result the Executive Committee of the Springbok Club now consists of the following:-

Chairman/Organiser : Alan Harvey
Vice-Chairman : Raymond Simpson
Secretary : David Williams
Treasurer : Allan Robertson
Liaison Officer : Bill Binding
Official Translator : Ryan Kriste
Branch Development Officer : Daniel Wilkinson

A number of other decisions were then made on the matters of fund-raising, production of publicity material and branch development (with particular reference to the encouraging news about the planned establishment of a new branch in Northern Ireland).

A copy of the minutes of this EGM is available to all current members of the Springbok Club upon request.



The London (Capital) Branch of The Springbok Club will be holding a social gathering later this month. The details are as follows:-

Date : Sunday 21st September 2003.

Venue : The ORANGE TREE, Richmond, Surrey. (Nearest railway station: Richmond, on both the District Line and mainlines. Turn right after leaving the station - the Orange Tree is then on the left-hand side of the road, less than 5 minutes away).

Time : The gathering will take place informally in the pub between 12:00 noon and 14:00 hrs for drinks and convivial conversation. Afterwards, weather permitting and depending on the preferences of those present, a trip to nearby Richmond Park or along the Thames will take place, before returning to the pub for more of the same.

The London (Capital) Branch extends a warm invitation to all to attend this event, and hope and look forward to being able to see all who can make it.



In October the Springbok Club will be welcoming a high-profile expatriate South African lady as guest speaker. On 15th November the Springbok Club will be holding its annual UDI Day Dinner at which a leading member of the last Rhodesian Government will be Guest of Honour, and on 16th December the Springbok Club will be holding its traditional Day of the Vow Commemorations, when the organisation will welcome a current British MP as Guest of Honour.

If you would like to make an advanced booking for any of these events then please let us know.



The London Swinton Circle will be holding a very important meeting early next week, the details of which are as follows:-

Date : Tuesday 9th September 2003.

Time : 18.45 hrs for 19.00 hrs.

Venue: The Thatcher Suite, Portcullis House, Westminster, London SW1.

Guest Speaker : Mr. Jeffrey Donaldson MP (UUP, Lagan Valley), who will speak on "Resisting the Joint Declaration of the British and Irish Governments, and realigning Unionism."

(In view of the fact that Mr. Donaldson has recently resigned the UUP Parliamentary whip, and that at a subsequent meeting of the UUP's ruling council David Trimble only narrowly won a vote "regretting this action", it would seem that these are very dramatic times for Ulster Unionism. Mr. Donaldson's speech to the London Swinton Circle could therefore be of great historical significance.)

At their well-attended and highly successful Summer Buffet this year the London Swinton Circle were highly honoured to welcome Miss Ann Widdecombe MP, the former Home Office minister and Shadow Home Secretary, as guest speaker. She gave a very interesting and informative speech, concentrating mainly on the key provisions of the Criminal Justice Bill and the Sexual Offences Bill currently going through Parliament. During a lively question time she covered a huge range of topics, including support for the War in Iraq, the banning of fox hunting, the suitability of Margaret Hodge as Children's Minister, improving higher education, sex education, the Belfast Agreement and the Asylum-seeking crisis.



Guy Levi writes as follows:-

I have a web-site to seek a Caucasian (White) South African wife. I lived in South Africa from 1973 till 1996; well I'm sure glad I left the RSA run by the ANC and am now based in the UK. I am 37 years old and found myself without South African friends here. I live in
Folkestone, Kent, and my web-site address is :-

All are welcome to look it up and to contact me at my hotmail account, which is : I am a UK citizen and single. I would be grateful if you could tell others about my web site also. So if you know any South African ladies who would like to live in Britain, please let me know. Thank you for any assistance.

Kind regards,

Guy Levi.


Anthony Frost writes as follows :-

I wonder if you could help me - I take it that you have been keeping a close eye on all the murders of Whites by Blacks. I am trying to trace a murder that happened around May/June 1998 of a guy named Bester that took place in the Transvaal.

Many thanks,

Anthony Frost

The players were guarded by gun
So they could bowl or clock up a run
But no matter the score
There's one thing for sure
It was Robert Mugabe who won.

Philip Benwell MBE, the Chairman of the Australian Constitutional Monarchy League, is mounting a campaign in Australia, Canada and New Zealand opposing the European Constitution on the basis that it has the potential to interfere with the sovereignty of these Commonwealth countries. He will be travelling to the UK next April primarily to encourage expatriates in the UK to be vocal in opposition to the European Union. Inter alia he will be holding a meeting in this regard at the House of Lords on 21st April 2004. More details about this meeting and other aspects of Philip Benwell's campaign and visit will be appearing in future editions of the SCN.

No.58 : Mr. WALTER HOLLOWAY of Poole.

Walter Holloway was active with a number of pro-Rhodesian and pro-South African organisations in the Medway Towns during the 1970s, and was also an early supporter of S.A.Patriot after the magazine was founded in 1980. During the early 1980s he moved to Poole in Dorset and remained in regular correspondence for a few years, but then communications inexplicably ceased. We have reason to believe that he is no longer resident at his last known address in Poole (7 Symes Road, Hamworthy), but a number of former colleagues would very much like to be able to make contact with him again.



We have recently been informed of an excellent web-site established by the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland dedicated to the signing of the Ulster Covenant. Many of our readers may find it interesting to browse through the images of the various signatures which it contains. This web-site can be accessed at :-

In total, the Ulster Covenant was signed by 237,368 men (many in their own blood), and the accompanying Declaration by 234,046 women.





I had not been in South Africa for 11 years, but felt it was time to go and have a look myself once again. I am of the opinion that it is good to get first hand information, which is possibly not really possible in 3 weeks. So my report was simply what my feelings were during the trip and from what we heard.

I do not agree that all this business development had been planned already during the eighties, in my opinion it is simply a flight of established businesses and banks from the inner cities. They could not find qualified staff anymore who were prepared to work in the towns, so they closed their offices there and moved to the outskirts. Urban development in Umhlanga Ridge, just over the road from the Sharks Board down to the Freeway apparantly is mainly occupied by Indians. Huge business development as well across the Freeway from Alexandra on the Outer Ring Road is a similar situation. Industrial quarters like Kew, etc. have been abandoned as it was totally unsafe for people to go to work there. And the inner city of Johannesburg, with the exception of the financial district (stock exchange area!) which is the best protected place in the whole of South Africa, has also completely slummed up and businesses have moved to the outskirts. Two weeks ago we had friends of ours visiting who told us a few very funny stories on what is happening in some places in the north west of Randburg like Kya Sands, where even the better off squatters on their borders are teaming up with the tennants of Kya Sands properties to form vigliante guarding. Ever since they are working together the burglaries have come down by a high percentage. I am afraid that you are probably very right with your anticipation that future development will slow down tremendously to a little trinkle.

Yours etc.,

Margrit Stutz-Laube, Lengnau, Switzerland




1,500 large white crosses were placed along the N1 highway in Gauteng [i.e. the PWV area] today - to commemorate each Boer soul which has died in the Boer Genocide since 1994.

It has not been uncommon for us to receive antagonistic e-mails from those who oppose our aims and objectives, most of which come clearly from agents of the ANC and ZANU/PF regimes.

Although we hadn't received any such hostile e-mails for several months now, during this past month we've received a fresh batch of such antagonistic mailings from seemingly two separate sources - though in view of the timing and the similar styles of writing we somehow think they are linked.

The first, giving the e-mail address of, was from someone going by the name of Mwana Wevhu who claimed to be an opponent of Mugabe, but who castigated us for our support of the erstwhile Rhodesia (without giving any reason why this was wrong). When we politely wrote back to Mr. Wevhu, however, our e-mail "bounced", thus suggesting that it may have been a completely phoney set-up.

The second source was anonymous however, and the e-mail address given was Their e-mails contained a number of direct attacks on the Springbok Club and "conservative circles" in general, as well as forwarding some bizarre extreme left-wing material. In this instance our replies didn't "bounce" however, although we received no subsequent responses from the anonymous individual concerned. The weird thing about the e-mail prefix used in this case, however, was that it could be translated as "Real Tories", the slang term for the British Conservative Party - which of course is the last thing which these warped individuals evidently represent!

We wonder therefore whether anyone knows anything further about who might be behind these weird e-mail addresses?




Esmond Wright, who died last month aged 87, was one of the leading British academic experts on American History. He also won a famous by-election for the Conservative Party in the Glasgow Pollok constituency in 1967, thus proving that the city is not necessarily a "no-go" area for right-of-centre political parties as is commonly assumed.

Once in Parliament Esmond Wright formed a close bond with Enoch Powell, and not only because of their common academic background (they were then the only two professors in Parliament). Both were opposed to Britain's entry into the European Economic Community, and both were keen Atlanticists, seeing the "open seas" as a more viable and natural alternative to European entrapment.

Of more particular interest is that Esmond Wright went on to become principal of Swinton College, an institution from which today's London Swinton Circle traces its roots. We mourn the passing of this great patriot.
