February 2008 Edition.


February 2008 edition

Few pieces of news can have delighted the hearts of all decent people more than the recent demise of the unspeakable Peter Hain.

Hain's despicable history has been well detailed in these columns before, and showed a consistent demonic hatred for his own kith and kin. It all started with his leadership of the evil "Stop the 70 Tour" campaign, which sought to deny people in Britain and South Africa innocent sporting pleasure simply because Hain and his fellow kill-joys didn't like the form of democracy then in existence in South Africa. Many of the actions of this vile campaign - such as the scattering of tin-tacks on rugby grounds, the hi-jacking of a player's coach and threats to shoot off cricket bails with sniper rifles - can only be described as quasi-terrorist operations. Such is the background of the repulsive Mr.Hain.

Incredibly the socialist windbag Neil Kinnock allowed the controversy-plagued Hain to enter Labour's parliamentary ranks, and to their eternal shames both Blair and Brown gave him ministerial rank. Once he got his dirty hands on the levers of power Hain was able to give substance to his hatred for his race and the British nation. As a junior Welsh minister he deviously orchestrated devolution in Wales (a necessary pre-cursor to our enemies' hoped-for break-up of the United Kingdom), and then after being promoted to become a junior Foreign & Commonwealth minister was heavily involved in the attempted sell-out of our loyal colony of Gibraltar to Spain - an attempt which was expertly stymied by Gibraltar Chief Minister Peter Caruana's clever ploy of holding a decisive referendum confirming the Gibraltarian people's overwhelming desire to maintain their current constitutional position.

Most disturbingly the trouble-making Hain was then promoted to cabinet rank by the crypto-Catholic Tony Blair, and unbelievably given the position of Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, where his task was apparently to enact the final sell-out of the loyal province of Ulster to the RC-dominated Republic of Ireland. Happily Hain's evil machinations were once more stymied, this time by the loyalist people of Ulster who voted the hard-line DUP into power, who were then able to out-manoeuvre both the Blairite and RoI governments to maintain Northern Ireland's position within the United Kingdom.

Although Gordon Brown retained the wretched Hain in his cabinet, he at least moved him away from any position where he could attempt further constitutional damage. But for Hain-the-pain even worse problems were to follow. Arrogantly he decided to stand for the Labour Party Deputy Leadership, yet in spite of obtaining more money than all the other five candidates put together (as subsequently revealed) he only managed to come an ignominious fifth out of six. Furthermore the campaign exposed the level of contempt and hatred which the rank and file of the Labour movement evidently has for the poisonous Peter Hain.

Hain's recent demise, however, has had all the hallmarks of divine retribution. Once irregularities in his campaign financing had been detected (ironically only becoming illegal as a result of legislation introduced by the present Labour government!) he was quickly deserted by all his cabinet colleagues - thus confirming that it wasn't just the lower ranks of the Labour Party who detested him. An incident which occurred when the wretched creature read out his resignation statement on the steps of his former ministry was perhaps the most telling however, for it was
reported that building workers on a site across the road loudly booed him. These building workers couldn't have been particularly concerned about irregularities in his campaign financing, nor familiar with the intricacies of his attempted constitutional betrayals in his previous ministerial positions - no, what these building workers were aware of and what angered them so much was undoubtedly Hain's earlier violent anti-South African campaign. In this these building workers spoke better for the true people of Britain than anyone has done for many years.

As the old saying goes "He who laughs last laughs longest"; it may have been a very long time coming, but this only means that Hain's demise gives even more reason to rejoice. Let us hope that he crawls back to the sewer from whence he came never to emerge again.



The Springbok Club/ELC was most pleased to be able to welcome Mr. John O'Brien as their guest speaker for their January meeting. Mr. O'Brien, who is Chairman of the Newbury Branch of Rhodesians Worldwide and a former trustee and National Chairman of the Rhodesians Worldwide Assistance Fund, was a leading organiser of the official UK memorial service in honour of the Hon. Ian Douglas Smith which was held in Berkshire during December. He gave a marvellous account of the memorial service - brought to life by pictures shown on his lap-top computer - which made all present feel that they had actually attended the event. After this he gave a most interesting and informative report on the important work of not only the RWAF, but also the M'dala Trust, a charity which was very close to the Hon. Ian Smith's heart during his final years.



Details of the next Springbok Club/ELC meeting are as follows :-

Guest Speaker : Professor CHARLES MULLER

Date : Tuesday 26th February 2008

Time : 19.00 hrs for 19.30 hrs.

Venue : THE ANTELOPE (the upstairs function room), 22 Eaton Terrace, Belgravia, London SW1W 8EZ (nearest tube station: Sloane Square).

Orange Free State-born Charles Humphrey Muller, MA (Wales), PhD (London), DLitt (OFS), DEd (SA), was Professor and Head of the Department of English at the University of the North in South Africa for ten years, and Senior Lecturer in English at the University of South Africa before that. He is the author of numerous academic textbooks and literary studies published by Oxford University Press and McGraw-Hill, and was editor of Unisa English Studies and Communiqué, literary journals of the University of South Africa and the University of the North respectively. In 1988 he left his academic career to move to the UK where he bought a small hotel, the Kenmore Bank Hotel in Jedburgh, Roxburghshire, to devote more time to creative writing. He has since written a number of novels ("A Twist in Time", "The Cage and the Cross", "Wheel of Fortune" and "Continental Drift"), and with his wife Joanne has co-authored two novels ("Rapture at Sea" and "Spirit of Ecstasy" by 'Carolyn Charles'). He wrote the inspirational work "Have Anything You Really Really Want", and served as editor for his wife's 'self-help' book "So You Want to Buy a Small Hotel!". After he sold his hotel in 2000 he established his own editing and publishing business, "Diadem Books", moving to the Grea Glen. Altogether he has published over 200 books in various categories. At present he lives in Clashnessie on the wild north-west coast of Sutherland, but spends summers at his home in Nova Scotia. The latest and perhaps greatest work published by "Diadem Books" is "Winston Churchill by his Personal Secretary", a biography of Sir Winston Churchill's wartime secretary Elizabeth Nel (who married a South African WWII serviceman and subsequently moved to Port Elizabeth), and this will form the main topic of Mr. Muller's talk.



The Springbok Club is planning to hold a special day-long celebration to mark Van Riebeeck's Day on Saturday 5th April in Stepney, east London. This will feature braai facilities, a bar, musical entertainment, South African-orientated videos and the presence of a number of prominent personalities. More details will be given in next month's edition of the SCN.



The Kent Branch of the SC/ELC is planning an informal pub gathering on the north Kent coast on Sunday 2nd March.

The London Branch of the SC/ELC will be staging a trip to see the finish of the Doggett's Coat & Badge race on the Thames in July/August.

A member of the ExCo of the SC/ELC anticipates being in Belfast during August, when it is hoped that the Northern Ireland Branch of the organisation will be re-constituted.

Anyone interested in attending any of these events should 'phone: 07711-188430 for more details.



As can be seen, the Springbok Club/ELC hopes and plans to advance quite rapidly in the months ahead, but in order to do this we must start obtaining substantially more funds on a regular basis. In particular we need to obtain better photocopying facilities very quickly - as all those who have received invitations to our latest activities will fully understand!

Donations should be made payable to "The Springbok Club" and sent to: The Springbok Club/ELC, BCM SAPAT, London WC1N 3XX, U.K.



The London Swinton Circle was most honoured to welcome Mr. Peter Bone MP, the Conservative MP for Wellingborough and Rushden, as guest speaker last month. This proved a very successful and well-attended event, with Mr. Bone (a leading member of the "Better Off Out" group) giving a most inspiring speech detailing how many of the problems facing today's Britain could be rectified by a future Conservative government, particularly in relation to the UK's continuing membership of the EU.


Details of the next London Swinton Circle meeting are as follows :-

Date : Monday 25th February 2008

Time : 19.00 hrs

Venue: Committee Room 2 of the House of Lords (please check at Central Lobby of the Houses of Parliament for the definitive location of this meeting, as Committee Room allocations are sometimes subject to alteration at short notice).

Guest speaker : Lord Stoddart of Swindon, the Independent Labour Life Peer and former Chairman of the Campaign for an Independent Britain, who will speak on the theme "The Lisbon Treaty Bill and the erosion of our liberties."


On Thursday 27th March the London Swinton Circle will be welcoming Mr. Tom Wise MEP, one of the UKIP MEPs for the East of England, as guest speaker. Fuller details will be given in next month's SCN.

New Britain staged their traditional ceremony at the bust of Admiral Arthur Phillip (the founder of Sydney and the first Governor of Australia) in the City of London on Australia Day (January 26th), where a floral tribute was laid by Mr. Dennis Delderfield, the National Chairman of the organisation. The Australian National Anthem was then sung, which was followed by a march headed by an Australian flag-bearer to the near-by St.Katherine Cree Church where a special service to mark the occasion was held. Throughout the day special Australia Day celebrations were also held at the Australian-themed Walkabout pub near Temple which was attended by an estimated 2000 people - most adorned with the REAL Australian flag! The Australian National Anthem was constantly played throughout the evening - as well as the New Zealand National Anthem at the end of the night. Apart from masses of expat Australians and New Zealanders, there were also a number of Brits, South Africans and at least one South-West African present at this crowded event - thus confirming the continuing friendship and unity between the pan-British people around the globe.

New Britain also held a ceremony to mark New Zealand's National Day on 6th February at the statue of Capt. James Cook in The Mall, which was followed by a special New Zealand-themed lunch and talk about the country.

The National Chairman of New Britain, Mr. Dennis Delderfield, is planning to stand for election for Mayor of London this year under the slogan of "Stop the Waste of Public Money". If elected Mr. Delderfield vows not to accept any salary and to do his best to abolish both the post of Mayor of London and the Greater London Authority. He also plans to visit Cardiff on St.David's Day, 1st March, in order to take part in a special event to mark the Welsh patron saint's day.



Our biggest concern is the fate of the rhino in Zimbabwe. In the past 3 months we have lost 11, which is totally unacceptable. We cannot stress enough, the importance of protecting this gravely endangered species, not only for Zimbabwe but for the world as a whole.

Everybody has now heard about the Imire tragedy, where 3 black rhino were gunned down by men in military uniform. If you count the foetus that was only a week away from being born, we actually lost 12 rhino in the past 3 months - that we know of. A substantial reward has been raised for information leading to the arrest of the perpetrators of this atrocity. The reward will be paid to the informant by National Parks once the criminals have been apprehended, so if anyone has any information please contact either National Parks on 792731 or the ZCTF on

I did not go to a first class school in Rhodesia
But Rhodesia gave me a first class education

I had no right to vote in Rhodesia then
But Zimbabwe gave me a right to vote for devils

I was brought up to hate you Mr Smith while young
But as a man I grew up to hate your enemy

I actually angrily believed then that Rhodesia will never have Black rule in a thousand years
But I can now happily say I will never again live under a Black majority rule in Zimbabwe in a thousand years

I am not White and never took you to be my Prime Minister then
But I am Black and would rather have had you as my Prime Minister now

You were right but had to leave government
But I was wrong and chose to leave my country

I am not a poet;
But these are my thoughts;

I am proud of what I have become
But you are the man who led a country that made me the person I am!

On behalf of the many Black faces who dare not say;
If ever you were hated, you were honestly loved more

R.I.P. Mr.Smith

"WAY OUT OF LINE" by Trisha Jackson

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.

Copies of "Way Out of Line" can be ordered from

The compelling story of what really happened in a defeated Japan following the end of World War II. Merchant seaman James Mackay, whilst travelling in the east, started to hear stories of massacres and other atrocities committed by Japanese forces, not just against enemy troops, but against innocent civilian populations. His subsequent investigations revealed reluctance amongst Allied governments to discuss these incidents that seemed to amount almost to a cover-up. Why would the Allies want to overlook the crimes of a former enemy, especially when the leadership of another former enemy was being liquidated at Nuremburg? Using his own research, as well as material prepared by Australian Army war crimes investigator Capt. J.G. Goodwin, Mackay exposes the cover-up and names the guilty. Not only were the Japanese keen to sweep the past under the carpet, but the US government of the time also had its own reasons for preserving the political and industrial elite in Japan. A provocative book, which calls into question the morality of US policy towards Japan after WWII.

No.111 : Mr. JOHANNES LOUW of Durban

Johannes Louw was the son of that great friend of our movement Adv. Martin Louw, and the grandson of Dr. Eric Louw, the former South African Foreign Minister and Minister for Economic Affairs. No less of a genius himself, Johannes Louw graduated in Media Studies at the University of Potchefstroom vir CHE, and was a regular contributor to S.A.Patriot. Alas contact with him was broken when we were forced to relocate our operations to the UK, but we managed to re-make contact with him via e-mail at the start of the Internet age, when we learnt that he was working in the press and public relations department of the SAP. Unfortunately contact with him again ceased a few years ago when we believe that he was foced to leave the re-constructed SAPS, but we would be very keen to learn where he is now.

The left are so stupid; they are now making out Smith was the cause of Mugabe - like blaming Churchill for Hitler.

I am afraid that I couldn't attend the Memorial Service to the Hon. Ian Smith, but I hope the event went well. He was a good man and it was my privilege to have met him.

I know that Ian Smith had been recommended for a DFC and DSO and was blocked. Have you heard this?

He was very intelligent and may have been targeted by the Abwehr early on - it's a classic German tactic, talent-spotting and blocking the talent. They think long. Heath's MBE was pushed for example by German assets in the War Office. We know the Air Ministry was penetrated, hardly surprising with buffoons like Kingsley Wood as Air Minister!

Might be worth a closer look. I am thinking in terms of a posthumous award, exceptionally, if it turns out his medals were blocked for political reasons. I am sure he earned them.

Yours etc.,

Michael Shrimpton, Buckinghamshire, U.K.



A supporter has recently given us a copy of the January 2008 edition of the anti-fascist magazine Searchlight, which details in depth the recent internal friction and split within the neo-fascist BNP.

Normally, of course, such matters wouldn't concern us in the slightest, but evidently the person mainly being blamed for these internal problems by one of the factions involved (by all accounts the more democratically-orientated faction) is none other than young Mr. Arthur Kemp - who apparently has now left his wife and children in South Africa to become the de facto No.2 in the neo-fascist organisation!

Arthur Kemp is very well known to us of course, as has been detailed in many previous editions of the SCN, and from our own experience those involved have every reason to be very suspicious of this young man, who they evidently term "the South African spook". Kemp seemed a good friend of our movement during the 1980s, and indeed wrote regularly for S.A.Patriot under the pseudonym of Adrian Kotze, but we were warned to be very wary of him by sources in the Transvaal because he was allegedly working for the South African intelligence services. Shortly after we were forced to leave South Africa and the ANC regime came to power in the early 1990s Kemp suddenly changed his political stance radically, turning from a mainstream centre-right patriot like ourselves, to becoming an off-the-edge neo-Nazi nutter. He then irrationally turned on his former friends and bizarrely claimed - without any foundation whatsoever - that it was us rather than him who had changed political views (one only has to read through copies of successive editions of S.A.Patriot/S.A.Patriot-in-Exile and the SCN to see how ridiculous this claim is!). It was then revealed both by The Mail & Guardian and subsequently by Searchlight that Kemp was working for the "new" South African security services (having apparently simply been handed-over as an "asset" by the previous NP administration to the incoming ANC regime) where his job was apparently to adopt an extremist neo-Nazi image and then to infiltrate authentic opposition organisations in South Africa in order to smear and embarrass them by association. His usefulness to the "new" South African authorities now being over it would appear that he has simply been handed-over to their British equivalents.

We would actually disagree with Searchlight on two of their observations about Kemp. They criticise him for having worked for the NP intelligence apparatus, whereas our condemnation of him is for seemingly willingly being handed-over to the incoming ANC security structure with apparently no objection whatsoever. They criticise him for being involved in the assassination of the ANC terrorist leader Chris Hani, whereas we condemn him for turning State's Evidence against that great South African hero Clive Derby-Lewis. It would be interesting to make contact with the more democratically-orientated faction of the BNP in order to compare notes about this young man.




It was with much sadness that we recently learnt of the sudden death of Norman Reeves towards the end of last year.

Norman Reeves enjoyed a distinguished service career with the SADF, serving as an officer with both the Parabats (the Parachute Battalion) and the crack Recce Commandos. He was also for a time very active with the patriotic movement in the Durban area, being an early supporter of S.A.Patriot and giving the magazine good publicity in the "freebee" newspaper which he then ran in Pinetown. Alas he disappeared from the scene during the mid-1980s, and apparently decided to remain in the "new" South Africa, but he subsequently re-surfaced a few years ago running his own private security company, CombatSecurity, which became a thorn in the side of the ANC regime because - unlike the SAPS - they proved very efficient in combating crime in Natal.

Norman was in rude health and only in his early 60s when he died suddenly of a heart attack - something which many people regard as suspicious. Our sincerest condolences are extended to Norman's widow Tersha.
