September 2007 Edition.


September 2007 edition

Like all other people with any shred of common decency, we heard the news that a statue of the evil terrorist leader 'Nelson' Mandela was being erected in Parliament Square, London, with outrage and astonishment.

In order to express the feelings of all decent citizens - both British and expatriate South African - regarding this offensive development the Springbok Club circulated the following letter to a number of national newspapers, though unfortunately none of them seem to have published it (such alas appears to be the continuing persuasive influence of 'political correctness') :-

"Dear Sir,

"It was with great anger and disbelief that we read of the unveiling of a statue of Nelson Mandela in Parliament Square.

"Mandela was convicted of terrorist offences in South Africa in 1964 and sentenced to life imprisonment. At a time when the western world is engaged in a War against Terror, and British, American and other Western troops are being killed daily in the fight against international terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is highly offensive in the extreme that a statue 'honouring' this terrorist leader should be erected in London. Mandela's ANC has been responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent people of all races both prior to and after being handed power in South Africa - over 2100 innocents have been slaughtered in terrorist-type attacks on South African farms alone since the ANC regime gained control of the country in 1994.

"We therefore call for the immediate removal of this offensive statue, and for its replacement by a memorial honouring the victims of international terrorism and those who risk their lives combating this evil.

"Yours sincerely,

"The Executive Committee of the Springbok Club"

It was significant in this regard that Britain's new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, saw fit to praise and 'honour' the convicted terrorist Mandela personally. How utterly hypocritical therefore that just a few weeks later Brown should lambaste Mandela's brother southern African terrorist leader Robert Mugabe and to state that he would refuse to attend an international conference in Lisbon if Mugabe was present. Mandela and Mugabe are of course like two peas in a pod. They both only gained power by means of terror and violent intimidation, and once they obtained control of their respective countries they both presided over descents into primeval savagery and lawlessness. To praise Mandela but to condemn Mugabe, as Brown has done, is rather like saying that Ronnie Kray was a jolly good fellow but that Reggie Kray was an evil rogue.

Our condemnation of both Mandela and Mugabe has nothing to do with the colour of their skin. Our revulsion towards White terrorists such as Adams and McGuinness is just as strong.

With the growing rejection of 'political correctness' around the Western world we believe that it won't be too long before this hideous statue to the terrorist Mandela is dismantled - and hope that the resulting scrap metal may be put to far better use in the manufacture of weapons to fight against the curse of international terrorism!



The London Branch of the Springbok Club/Empire Loyalist Club held a small but highly enjoyable get-together at a Thames-side pub earlier this month. More work still needs to be done to establish the London Branch on a firmer footing however, so if anyone is keen to become more actively involved in the administration of the branch please e-mail:

Since 2001 we have been collecting information from private game ranches around Zimbabwe. The information we have been endeavouring to obtain from individual game farms is:-

Wildlife populations prior to the land invasions, broken down into species.
Number of animals killed during land invasions, broken down into species.
Last known populations.
Number of snares recovered.
Length of fencing stolen.

Of the 62 farms studied, 59 reported wildlife losses of 42,236.

33 of the 62 farms reported removing a total of 155,204 snares.

8 of the 62 farms reported a total of 931km of fencing stolen to make wire snares.

This is not to say that the other farms didn't find snares or have any fencing stolen. All of them reported finding snares and having fencing stolen but many of them didn't keep records.

In order to estimate the percentage of wildlife lost on private game ranches, we chose 17 of the 62 farms studied. We chose the farms that had kept proper records and supplied us with the most up to date statistics. In the cases where the last information received was in 2002 or 2003, we used the statistics only when most of the wildlife had been wiped out by then because if we had been able to obtain more recent figures, they would have been much the same at best. We based the estimations on the fact that we believe there were 620 private game farms prior to the land invasions and according to our records, there are only 14 left today.

The total population of wildlife on the 17 farms prior to the land invasions was 16,772, an average of 986 animals per farm. If this figure is extrapolated out to 620 farms, we estimate that there were 611,320 animals on private game ranches prior to the land reform.

The total number of animals lost on the 17 farms between 2000 and 2007 was 15,704, an average of 923 animals per farm. If there are only 14 game farms left, it can reasonably be assumed that the 606 game farms that were confiscated suffered heavy losses. If the average loss figure is extrapolated out to 606 farms, we estimate that the total losses amount to 559,338 animals. This is a loss of 91% on private game ranches only.

We took conservancies separately, over and above the private game ranches. According to our records, there were 15 conservancies prior to the land reform and now, the only one left of any consequence is Save Valley Conservancy.

We obtained the following information regarding wildlife losses on conservancies:-

Debshan Estates had 17,394 animals in 2002. By Dec. 2002, they had lost 8955, a percentage of 51. We have had no figures from them since 2002.
Gourlays Ranch had 6348 animals in 2000 and by Dec. 2006, they had lost 6050, a percentage of 95. Amongst the animals slaughtered were 24 black rhino.
Gwaai Valley Conservancy reported a loss of 80% of their wildlife by June 2002.
Chipizi Ranch reported 100% loss by 2003.
Bembezi Safaris reported 100% loss.
Save Conservancy had 13,370 animals in 2000 and by June 2002, they had lost 4718, a percentage of 35.
In the absence of further information, we based our estimates on these 6 conservancies. The average percentage of animals lost is 76.

The average percentage of wildlife lost on the private game ranches and conservancies together is therefore estimated to be 83.

We have not been able to obtain figures on animals lost in National Parks so if we conservatively estimate that only 10% has been lost, this brings the loss over the whole country to 59%. In view of the fact that since the collapse of the economy, National Parks has not been in a position to carry out anti-poaching patrols effectively, we don't believe that 10% is an unreasonable estimation.

Although the wildlife is still fairly abundant in Hwange National Park and Mana Pools, we receive regular reports from tourists that they are very lucky to spot any game in Gonarezhou and Chisarira.

We are not claiming to "know" how much wildlife has been lost. We have just tried to make the most accurate estimate possible with very limited data to work with. If anyone has reason to believe we have overestimated the losses, we would be very grateful for further information so we can update or correct our records.



Many readers will undoubtedly remember Cliff Saunders, the leading SABC news presenter from the 1980s. Although not without his detractors, Saunders conducted a remarkable interview with PW Botha shortly before his death, which sinisterly SABC reneged from broadcasting. We carry below extracts from a most revealing letter which Saunders recently wrote to "The Star" newspaper of Johannesburg:-

"Dear Sirs,

"Your Editorial: 'It's time to own up, FW' refers.

"Your demand that FW de Klerk should now accept 'responsibility for his role' in perpetuating what you call 'this country's Dark Ages' is silly, if not ridiculous. Should the joint holder of the Nobel Peace Prize now suddenly come to the fore and admit to bearing responsible for the atrocities of the apartheid era it's logical that he should also condemn the presentation of the Peace Prize to him as a 'mistake and a farce' and distance himself from the event. He will not! After all to have a 'perpetrator of atrocities' holding such a prestigious Prize would be to disgrace the entire idea behind Nobel's initiative and ruin FW's carefully nurtured image.

"Rather I would prefer hearing FW de Klerk and the likes of Pik Botha apologising to the Whites of this country for the role they played in engineering a switch-over of government whereby the new ANC government rapidly replaced 'racist apartheid' benefiting the Whites with 'racist affirmative action' benefiting the Blacks. We were promised a non-racist society!

"As for the reference to PW Botha as a 'lost cause, a dinosaur coddled in senility' - such a remark can come only from a person who has not seen the last interviews with PW Botha which are now out in the public domain (under copyright!) via DVD and VHS recordings. 'Senile' PW was not! Would SABC have offered R200,000 for the English interview alone had they regarded him as a 'senile dinosaur' incapable of coherent thought and speech?

"PW Botha displayed remarkable clarity of mind and memory and analysis during his two-hour-long interviews in English and Afrikaans - and it is that which the ANC wishes to keep from the public domain.

"Yours sincerely,

"Cliff Saunders."

"WAY OUT OF LINE" by Trisha Jackson is a novel which tells the story of the profound impact that an innocent youthful love affair has on the lives of two young lovers. The plot moves from a cult and a maximum security prison in the US to the savannah grasslands of Mozambique and Zimbabwe - this makes for adventure, suspense and melodrama. Packed with conflict and sexual tension, anyone who loves romance, passion and excitement should enjoy reading this story.

Trisha Jackson was born and grew up in Rhodesia. She immigrated to the USA with her husband and three children in 1990. She and her husband live in a unique, rural community in the Tonto National Forest in the eastern mountains of Arizona.

"OF RICE AND MEN", by Jimmy Walker

111 pages. Illustrated. With excellent cartoons by Fusilier Norman Lambert, produced whilst in captivity. Soft-back £5.00 (cover price £10.00)

An irreverent, left of centre, look at life as a POW by Jimmy Walker, who was captured by the Japanese following the fall of Singapore in 1942. Jimmy takes us through incarceration at the notorious Changi jail, forced labour on the railroad, and deportation to Japan, where the Japanese exploited the mining skills of the boys from Northumberland. Norman Lambert’s sketches are both amusing and frightening at the same time. Through the bitterness and resentment, and physical trauma of captivity shines the humour and the indomitable spirit of the British soldier. An enjoyable and educational read, with a surprise ending.

Prices include p&p. Payment can be made by credit or debit card. To order on line, log on to and enter as payment destination.

She married in Gulu, Uganda, where she ran the local Hospital, dealing with surgical cases never before described in textbooks.

"THE RAPE OF ZIMBABWE" by Ricky Wilson - which tells it like it was (and is)!

Rhodesia was once a prosperous and thriving country, and the story of the author's enterprising and entrepreneurial spirit in that land, followed by his desperate escape from the country when, as Zimbabwe, it became ruled by a tyrant, imparts a realistic perspective of the present desperate plight of many exiles from a country that was once a paradise and the breadbasket for so much of Africa.

You have probably heard about the strike goings on here? Not good, but a 6.5% increment is ridiculous and 12% is too high to meet. We are living in frightening times with this sort of threat and with the increase in crime - didn't know it could get worse. This Saturday we are actually joining a "March for Peace". We have been asked to wear black, and if you have been effected by crime to wear flowers, or something on your sleeve to show in what way you were effected. The latest modus operandi by thieves is to rob and attack people in restaurants. A week ago 7 Blacks went into the St.Tropez restaurant, assaulted and robbed the staff, then onto the customers. They went upstairs to continue the raid and apparently there was a sound of breaking glass from downstairs, so the robbers starting shooting. Someone had just arrived to celebrate a double 30th birthday with a large table of family and friends, but was shot dead while walking up the stairs, and two others received serious wounds. Since then there have been a couple more restaurant robberies with patrons held up. We have had shops hit in malls etc, and it happens a lot in the Johannesburg area I understand. It's extremely worrying. Truthfully, this place is fast approaching Zimbabwe status - I just want to GO.

Yours etc.,

Rose, Natal.




Great interview at Assertive but not aggressive, patriotic and proud, but not racist. A difficult balance to achieve. Well done!

I recently read information regarding the disgusting waste of £400,000 on a 9 foot statue to Nelson Mandela. When Britons are "existing on fresh air" it is disgusting to have a statue in Parliament Square to a man who was convicted of terrorism - why not one to Pol Pot as well? Let £400,000 be spent on British people who need it, and not statues to Nelson Mandela. Let the politicians behind it just resign.

Yours etc.,

Robert Shipley, Gillingham, Kent.




I too am now in a pissing contest with [Derek] Partridge, and have blocked his e-mails. He is propounding the conspiracy theory that 9/11 was done by the U.S. Government and that they blew up the Twin Towers and it was not the aircraft that did it! I find it disgusting and contemptible and told him so.

Yours etc.,

The following report appeared on the BBC News web-site of 17th August :-

"An MEP for South-East England has been convicted of 21 charges of fraud. Ashley Mote, 71, had started claiming income support and benefits after his business collapsed. But Portsmouth Crown Court heard he had failed to notify the authorities when he began earning money again and had received thousands in benefits. The father of two was elected in 2004 as a member of UKIP which threw him out when they discovered the charges. He then served as an independent MEP. Mote was found guilty of eight charges of false accounting, eight of obtaining a money transfer by deception, four of evading liability and one of failing to notify a change of circumstances. The four-week trial heard Mote ran a successful business which collapsed during the exchange rate mechanism crisis on Black Wednesday in 1992. He then began to claim income support, housing benefits and council tax benefits but failed to notify the benefits agency when he began earning money through various enterprises including spread betting on currency markets. Yet between February 1996 and September 2002 he received £73,000 in benefits. The court heard he used this money to pay off credit card debts which he had run up funding an 'extravagant lifestyle' such as restaurant dinners, private health care and holidays to the US, France and the Caribbean. Responding to the verdict, UKIP leader Nigel Farage said in a statement 'We are pleased that finally justice has been done. Mr Mote lied to UKIP on his application form to be an MEP candidate. If we had discovered just 48 hours earlier that this case was pending he would never have been elected an MEP. Subsequent to our discovering the truth Mr Mote was immediately removed from the party and never took his seat as a UKIP MEP. UKIP and the voters of the south-east have been defrauded for three years by Mr Mote'. A UKIP spokeswoman said the party would be contacting the European Parliament on Monday to clarify whether Mote now faces an automatic ban as an MEP after being found guilty of a criminal offence. She said 'We want him disqualified as an MEP'."

Mr. Mote has in the past spoken at London Swinton Circle meetings, though on the most recent occasion this met with the extreme displeasure of several LSC members who were also UKIP members, who were incensed by the fact that, although elected to the EU Parliament on a UKIP ticket, he had subsequently been stripped of the UKIP whip once it was discovered that he hadn't revealed the truth about his forthcoming criminal prosecution, and yet had refused to do the honourable thing by resigning his seat so that another authentic UKIP candidate could take his place. Furthermore, it seems as if Mr. Mote had been using certain provisions of the EU - which he claims to be totally opposed to - in order to safeguard his own position in the EU Parliament and to attempt to escape from prosecution.

Following the withdrawal of the UKIP whip Mr.Mote joined the "Identity, Tradition, Sovereignty" group in the EU Parliament (widely perceived to be neo-fascist in outlook), and rumours persist that he has sought nomination from the neo-fascist so-called "British National Party" (BNP) for the next EU elections. It is also interesting to note that although Mr.Mote has been happy to speak on LSC platforms in the past he has also apparently enjoyed close relations with the so-called "Conservative Democratic Alliance", an obscure outfit which for long has been waging an irrational and inexplicable hate campaign against certain leading officials of the LSC on their web-site discussion forum (see SCNs passim).

Needless to say, Mr.Mote is highly unlikely ever to be invited to address the LSC again!

Meanwhile the September 2007 edition of the anti-fascist journal "Searchlight" revealed that young Mr.Arthur Kemp - who is believed to be in close contact with the so-called CDA outfit (see "The Plot Thickens", August 2007 SCN) - has been handed the BNP’s "Excalibur merchandise outlet" (whatever that might be) and put in charge of their ideological training of 'voting members' (whoever they might be!) as part of a plan to build a new elite within the party loyal to the present leadership of a certain Mr.Nick Griffin. All we can say is that from what we know about Mr.Kemp and what we have heard about Mr.Griffin they are welcome to each other!

Finally, in the "Rogues Gallery" column of the March 2007 edition of the SCN we revealed how the American-based publication "Juluka", which claimed to be a magazine for the expatriate South African community, was in actual fact nothing more than a toadying rag for the ANC terrorist regime. Subsequent to this we have received a circular from this "Juluka" outfit in which they openly advertise the so-called "Home-Coming Revolution", which is widely believed to be merely a front for the ANC regime's pathetic attempts to persuade Whites to return to the murder and mayhem which is the "new" South Africa! Surely something to be avoided like the plague!




It was with much sadness that we learnt of the recent death of Vice-Admiral Sir Ian McGeoch, aged 93. Sir Ian enjoyed a distinguished career in the submarine service of the Royal Navy during WWII, gaining the DSO for his exploits when as commander of HMS Splendid he sank two enemy destroyers and two enemy anti-submarine vessels. Although subsequently captured by the Germans his subsequent escapes became the stuff which legends are based upon. He continued his RN service after he conclusion of WWII, rising to the rank of Vice Admiral. After retirement he pursued an academic career but retained a strong interest in all things nautical, becoming editor of "The Naval Review". He was also a strong "Empire man", and expressed great support for the aims and objectives of the new Empire Loyalist Club - though alas his advanced age prevented him from any active involvement. Our sincerest condolences are extended to his wife Somers and the rest of his family.
