July 2009 Edition.


July 2009 edition

In the five months which have elapsed since Morgan Tsvangarai entered a power-sharing government with the ZANU-PF regime not much has changed in the beleaguered land between the Zambezi and the Limpopo.

To be sure Zimbabwe's worthless currency has disappeared and all financial transactions can now take place in the U.S. Dollar, the Rand and the Pound Sterling (a new form of colonialism surely - and what an opportunity the British government missed by not offering Zimbabwe a place in the Sterling area, so that the Pound Sterling could become the new official currency of the country!), and as a result goods are once more appearing in the shops, but with Mugabe's ZANU-PF lackeys still controlling all of the security portfolios the terror campaign against both the remaining White farming community and the masses of ordinary MDC supporters continues.

Tsvangarai seems simply to be following in the footsteps of Joshua Nkomo almost three decades earlier, who was prepared to kow-tow to Mugabe in order to gain some minor trappings of personal power, whilst condemning his Matabele ZAPU supporters to the tender mercies of 5th Brigade of the PDRK Army! It was not surprising therefore to witness Tsvangarai being booed from the pulpit when he attempted to address his erstwhile exiled supporters at Southwark Cathedral in London last month.

If sanity and civilisation are to return to that land between the Zambezi and the Limpopo then what is needed isn't simply a few new faces in minor government positions, but a total roots-and-branches removal of the old corrupt and tyrannical regime. A complete new start is essential, and as the very name "Zimbabwe" will always be associated with Mugabe and his hellish policies this must mean a new flag, a new anthem, and indeed a new name for the very country itself.

Meanwhile south of the Limpopo there has been much criticism of Dr. Pieter Mulder, the Leader of the Freedom Front Plus, for accepting a post as junior Agriculture Minister in Zuma's new ANC regime. Dr. Mulder's position is far different to that of Morgan Tsvangarai however, as he does not lead a major opposition party which is slating for power, but rather a party which simply seeks to protect the interests of a minority of the electorate (albeit that by so doing it seeks to help the country as a whole). With the White community in South Africa facing an escalating terror campaign of violence and murder Dr. Mulder undoubtedly believed that he had the moral duty to use any opportunity available to try to curtail the prevailing lawlessness, even though this opportunity came in the form of a job offer from a most unexpected source. We therefore fully support Dr. Mulder in accepting this position, even though, alas, we believe that his chances of exerting any significant influences under the present dispensation are negligible.



The Kent Branch of the Springbok Club/ELC staged a most pleasant and informative trip to view three ancient stone megalith structures in mid-Kent last month. This proved to be an extremely happy and successful event, with the party visiting Kit's Coty House, Little Kit's Coty (also known as the Countless Stones) and the White Horse Stone. Local members were most fortunate to be joined on this trip by John Pope-de Locksley, the Organiser of the London Branch of the Springbok Club/ELC and an expert on the subject, who was able to explain something about the origins and history of all these stone megaliths - even giving an enthralling and somewhat amusing re-enactment of what he believed ceremonies would have been like at the White Horse Stone! 



The London Branch of the Springbok Club/ELC will be organising an away trip to Crystal Palace Park later during July, specifically to see the famous Crystal Palace dinosaurs (only statues, we hasten to add!), to which all supporters and friends are invited. Details of this visit are as follows :-

Date  :   Sunday 26th July 2009

Rendezvous arrangements : Either meet at Brixton tube/mainline station between 12.30 hrs and 13.00 hrs, or else rendezvous at Crystal Palace Station itself around 13.30 hrs. (By bus, catch the No.40 from Aldgate or London Bridge to Dorset Lane Library, Dulwich, then the No.185 or No.186 to Crystal Palace).

As well as viewing the dinosaurs and the other attractions of Crystal Palace Park, the branch will also be holding an unstructured outdoor picnic in the Park, so please bring along your own snacks and liquid refreshment. A couple of informal talks about experiences in South Africa and Rhodesia will also be given, as well as an opportunity for general discussion. For more information, or to confirm attendance, please 'phone John Pope-de Locksley on : 07779691026.

The Springbok Club's annual Rhodes & Founders Day celebration buffet has unfortunately had to be postponed until August, but it is still hoped to welcome a prominent ex-Rhodesian as guest of honour.

Further details will be given in next month's edition of the SCN.



A meeting to re-constitute the Northern Ireland Branch of the Springbok Club/ELC (possibly to be re-named the Belfast Branch) will take place in late August in central Belfast, on the evening of either Tuesday 25th or Wednesday 26th (perhaps those interested in attending could inform us of their preference?).

Precise details will be given in next month's edition of the SCN.
The London Branch of the Springbok Club/ELC is planning to hold a get-together in September, when a leading expert will be giving an informal talk about Anglo-Saxon archaeology.

The Kent Branch of the Springbok Club/ELC is planning a social get-together in the autumn at which a former Rhodesian Air Force member will be giving an informal talk about his experiences in the RhAF.

For more details about all these events please e-mail: or 'phone 07711188430.



We are pleased to be able to announce that the Swinton Circle has now initiated several policy campaigns, with letters being sent to the press regarding the issues in question. One such letter was published in the Daily Mail of July 6th 2009, and read as follows :-

"Dear Sir,

"The Swinton Circle is embarking upon a campaign to suggest to Commonwealth countries that they provide subsidised holidays to British people of limited means, providing assistance with transport and accommodation in their respective countries.

"Those who currently can't afford to go on holiday, such as the old, disadvantaged children and the disabled, would benefit greatly from such a scheme. Many Commonwealth countries receive a great deal of aid from the UK taxpayer, yet we have seen little or no improvement in the conditions in these countries. A scheme of assisted holidays for impoverished British citizens would not only enrich their own lives, but would also help strengthen Commonwealth friendship and co-operation.

"In the past several other countries have provided free holidays for their poorer citizens, which have proved great successes. We therefore urge the Commonwealth to do the same.

"Yours sincerely,

"The Swinton Circle"

The Swinton Circle has also now arranged for an exciting itinerary of meetings featuring high-profile guest speakers for the remainder of the year. Full details will of course be given in future editions of the SCN.



Israel has created a precedent by submitting the world's first nationwide bill "Prohibiting the Industry of Fur". Knesset member Nitzan Horowitz proposed on March, 18th 2009 a bill to prohibit the fur industry in its entirety, including all importation, production and all sales in Israel; illuminating that his intention is "not to lend a hand to this cruelty towards animals."

In light of this bill, Israel takes a giant leap forward; from having no existing law concerning fur; to becoming the first nation on the planet to completely protect all fur bearing animals from the suffering and death inflicted upon millions of animals at the hands of the fur industry the world over.
The International Anti-Fur Coalition' thanks MK Nitzan Horowitz for his proposal and we call on all MKs to support this bill," said Jane Halevy, Director of the 'International Anti-Fur Coalition'. "We hope that Israel will inspire other countries and they too will propose comparable bills throughout the world".

Last month, a report on Israel's Channel 10, led by SPCA Israel and International Anti-Fur Coalition, had revealed that items from the top fashion chain stores to cheap toys in bazaars, that what was being sold as fake fur was indeed real fur. Lab' tests had shown that several articles taken from leading Israeli brands and sold as fake fur were made of dog and rabbit fur!

Each year millions of animals are brutally killed for their fur throughout the world. Animals live in tiny cages made only of wire, before being gassed, electrocuted or even skinned alive! Footage shows that some of them fight against death for up to 15 minutes in total anguish after being skinned alive!

The International Anti-Fur Coalition is a collective of more than 50 organizations from around the world that fight against the fur industry. This coalition, created in 2006, organizes on a regular basis international days of action against the fur industry.

We have recently received the following interesting item from a pro-Falkland Islands circulation list :-

"Clarin (an Argentine newspaper) had an Easter Sunday present for us all yesterday - a report that the Argentine 'Families of the Fallen' organisation has asked the Argentine Government to harden its stance over the Falklands and stop the weekly LanChile flight from going through Argentine airspace to the Falklands - in order to force Britain and the Islanders to allow the huge inauguration visit by 649 Argentine relatives to the new cemetery at Darwin to take place by plane.

"The article appears to doubt whether the Argentine government would actually do this as it would be a breach of the 1999 Communications Agreement, but it wonders openly about this. It mentions that it was Argentina that stopped charter flights in 2003, but also mentions the Argentine argument that a 'humanitarian' flight shouldn't be compared with commercial charter flights.

"Comment: It's ironic that the 'Families of the Fallen' should be demanding a breach of the very same treaty that established the new monument at the Darwin cemetery that they so want to make their mass visit to. But it's certainly not surprising; after all Argentina has already broken the fisheries provisions of the 1999 Agreement, and Clarin's article itself mentions that Argentina has also annulled the oil agreement. It may all be bluster to intimidate Britain and the Islanders into doing what Argentina wants. But it all goes to show how vulnerable Falklands links are with South America - and how dangerous it would be for Islanders to make themselves even more dependent on South America through a second weekly flight there."



Dr Alan C. Clifford of the Norwich Reformed Church has recently sent us the following most thought-provoking circular :-

"Labour Party MP Shahid Malik has predicted the total Islamification of Britain and a Muslim prime minister, 'Allah willing', within the next thirty years. The people of Britain cannot say that they have not been warned. The remarks were made at the October 2008 'Global Peace and Unity' conference held at the Excel London centre, but were deliberately withheld from the video coverage released of that event.

"The video speech in which Mr Malik made his remarks has now been released on the Internet - nearly five months after the event.

"But where are the protests against this outrageous possibility to come from? Indeed, too many churchmen as well as politicians are gripped by cowardice in the face the Muslim menace. One fears that the oft-stated 'clash of civilisations' will inevitably erupt with violence on British streets when expected demographic predictions reach a critical point. Irrespective of the naive incompetence of 'PC' government policies, it is the amazing and long-suffering tolerance of British people that keeps a lid on such terrible possibilities. But for how much longer?

"As a Christian pastor, I pursue a mission which seeks the conversion of Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Religiously and politically, I desire compassion for all and malice towards none. Whether people follow the dictates of a false religion like Islam or they prefer the decadent life-style of much modern British secularism, all need the life-transforming message of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

"I believe there is simply no realistic hope for the peace and stability of the UK without a revival of authentic Christianity. However problematic it is to penetrate the minds of today's White secular materialists, the Islamic threat is an altogether 'mega' problem. The relatively peaceable attitude of the Muslim majority is simply a phase on the road to eventual fulfilment of the jihadic goal of global Islam. The 'militant-moderate' distinction is ultimately meaningless. While the Government bleats about 'integration', Muslims are only interested in 'domination'. Give them time and they will achieve it. 

"From my perspective, there is only one solution. If UK Muslims will not exchange the essentially-backward and barbaric tenets of their fanatical faith for the wonderfully soul-saving and civilising faith of Jesus Christ, they must emigrate to countries that share their outlook. For their safety's sake, I urge them to follow this advice. 

"Muslims must cease abusing the hospitality of our tolerant culture and, where applicable, the generosity of our social benefits. They must take their money, their mores and their mosques elsewhere. Otherwise, the consequences of the growing crisis in the UK will prove too dire for words.

"In conclusion, I refer the reader to my two publications:

"1. CHRISTIANITY, ISLAM & BRITISH POLITICS (a lecture given at Oxford to the Campaign for UK Conservatism Conference, 2005)     

"2. ISLAM - The Current Threat to the British Isles (a lecture presented in London to The Lawyers' Christian Fellowship, 2006)

The following most revealing report about the state of preparations for next year's soccer World Cup in South Africa has been received from the Southern Cross Africa news service :-

"FIFA official Jerome Valcke, general secretary of soccer's world governing body, has expressed his concern about the low number of tickets sold for an international soccer game in Rustenburg in the western Transvaal. "We were told there were only 900 tickets out of 43,000 not sold - and yet the stadium looked half empty," he said. "No matter whether France or England play a small country or are not playing well, the stadiums are full at home." Valcke emphasized that the game 'was not a FIFA event', blaming SAFA [the South African Football Association] instead.

"As the World Soccer Cup series next year approaches, and the expensive huge new stadiums near completion, the ruling regime's soccer sport authorities are running into problems getting enough tickets sold. In what is seen as a desperate ploy to cover up the lack of interest among potential White fans on the one hand, and the unwillingness or inability to pay among Black fans on the other, the ruling regime's Local Organizing Committee (LOC) has approached private institutions and business to buy tickets in bulk."

"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.

No.128 :  Mr. "Big Hearted" BILLY McCALL of Durban.

Billy McCall hailed from the west of Scotland, and was working his way around the world when he made contact with our movement in Durban during the mid-1980s. Having previously been based in Cape Town, his next aim was apparently to move to Australia. He gained his nickname of "Big Hearted" because of his generous attitude and friendly spirit, but he also had a great sense of humour, particularly regarding alleged Scottish meanness! Very much of a ladies' man (he would invariably turn up at parties in the company of young beauties and with his own bottle of cheap wine) he was also a gifted soccer player, playing regularly for Durban Collegians (it was said that the only reason he was not made captain was because of fear that he would pocket the coin at the toss-up!). A number of old friends would like to know whether he ever finished his tour round the world.



WorldNetDaily is probably the world's premier Internet-based news service. Over the years it has gained a very high reputation for objectivity and carrying stories that other more "politically correct" news services were frightened to touch. Of late it has been in the forefront of the exposure of the fact that Barack Hussein Obama was actually born in Mombassa, and therefore not eligible to serve as President of the United States. Its home-page for its all-encompassing news service can be accessed at :-





Desmond Tutu recently stated that the 2010 World Cup should be moved to another country. This was said spontaneously in respect of the South African Government's refusing to issue a visa to the Dalai Lama. When asked to repeat what he said, he hesitated and said he would have to reconsider this.

Another ANC criminal goes free in South Africa. I am absolutely dumbfounded to hear that Jacob Zuma's criminal charges have been dropped on technicalities. This does NOT mean he is innocent it just means he got off on a technicality. The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) are obviously protecting their jobs.

They saw what happened to the Scorpions. If I was Zuma being falsely Accused and I was innocent I would have insisted on going to trial to prove my innocence. Sheik was found guilty, therefore it follows that Zuma cannot be innocent. Now that the Scorpions have been closed down by the ANC and the NPA is now under the control of the ANC it begs the question: WHO IS GOING TO ARREST THE ANC CRIMINALS? I supported and trusted the Scorpions and even referred many cases to them. The NPA are now ANC "Yes men" cowards, so who can we trust? Who do we report crime to? The Police are obviously using Robert Mugabe's instruction manual. The ANC Government in South Africa is the most incompetent corrupt government we have ever had in South Africa. Almost every ANC Municipality is bankrupt. Mismanagement, bribery, fraud, theft, kick-backs and corruption everywhere. Jacob Zuma says he is a man of GOD? All I can say is that God is watching, and so are the rest of us law biding citizens. We need zero tolerance on all criminals.

I have particularly tried to get something going which would link supportive people in all the Commonwealth Realms to counter the sort of moves that Gordon Brown is proposing to amend the Act of Settlement. I have also been in touch with associates in Canada to mount a campaign also.

The thing is to make our Prime Ministers realise that any moves towards change will meet with great opposition and even Court challenges. However the head of Australians for Constitutional Monarchy has seen fit to write to oppose virtually everything I have said. He also holds that: "The proposal for change is that the rule against the succession of Catholics or those married to Catholics is to be repealed. While this had political relevance in the 17th century, it has none today."

However, despite this lack of personal support from the one organisation that should be standing so very strongly alongside me to fight against change to the Act of Settlement, I continue to battle on and prepare for the Commonwealth Summit in November where Brown proposes to raise the issue with the Prime Ministers of the other fifteen Realms. I will be soon undertaking the horrific task of writing personally to all members of all parliaments in all Realms.

The 13th of April marked the 90th Anniversary of the Amritsar Incident. Regrettable though the loss of life was, the background of anarchy and Murder should be remembered.

For instance there was the threat of Soviet Communist subversion in India, and upon the 9th of April 1919 Miss Marcella Sherwood was the victim of a cowardly attack by a brainwashed mob of thugs in Amritsar, and of course Brigadier General Dyer was angry about this outrage.

Upon the 10th of April 1919 the banks, the Town Hall and the Railway Station in Amritsar were attacked and set on fire, with 5 Europeans being murdered. In other parts of the Punjab railway lines were cut and 3 Europeans were murdered, resulting in most of the Punjab being placed under martial law.

The Defence of India Act 1915 and the Rowlatt Act had empowered the Viceroy's Government to deal with terrorism and treason. Had not Brigadier General Dyer an Officer of the Crown taken action there may of well of been a repeat of the infamous Indian Mutiny of 1857 to 1858 with events such as the Cawnpore Massacre occurring. £26,000 was raised to help Brigadier General Dyer by the Morning Post, and he was called the Saviour of the Punjab. A 13 Woman Committee gave Brigadier General Dyer a Sword of Honour.

The Gurkhas, the Punjab Rifles, the Pathans Infantry, the Dogra Regiment and the Baluchi Regiment did their duty in serving the Crown and preventing further anarchy in Amritsar.

The ill-treatment of Brigadier General Dyer by certain traitors to the United Kingdom and the British Empire was and is disgusting, but then so was most of the terrible 20th Century which wrecked and ruined the world.

In the April and May editions of the SCN we told how we had been sent copies of some quite bizarre documents dating back to the 1980s, for no apparent reason whatsoever. We have subsequently been sent two further photocopies of the same kind and from the same era, also relating to the apparent activities of the extremist political party known as the National Front (NF).

In amongst the obscenities, distasteful anti-Semitic paranoia and split infinitives of these documents there are however some very interesting revelations :-

One of the documents states the following "We wouldn't have to do this but for Nick's stupidity. It shows lack of judgement especially in a 'Chairman'". A note underneath this document seems to indicate that the "Nick" referred to is Nick Griffin - presumably the same person who is now Chairman of the neo-fascist BNP. Does this therefore mean that this character was previously Chairman of the NF we therefore wonder - and if so what was the reason for him apparently desertion of the NF to join the even more extremist BNP?

The other document contains extracts from two apparently official NF circulars, both of which contain even more interesting references. One states "In February, a number of houses were raided [by the police] in South East England, including the homes of Joe Pearce and Ian Anderson." The other, which is written on official NF notepaper, is signed by this apparent same Ian Anderson - who describes himself as "Deputy Chairman"!

As we stated in the revelations of our May edition, we are fairly certain that the Ian Anderson referred to is the same person who in more recent years turned up uninvited and unwelcome at Swinton Circle meetings, and who caused great embarrassment at these events by circulating copies of his privately-produced controversial publication "The Flag" (no connection to the periodical of the same name published by the Flame Lily Foundation in South Africa) and asking some very aggressive and antagonistic questions of guest speakers.

Could the person who has sent us these strange unsolicited articles be trying to tell us something we therefore wonder? Certainly the more we learn about this Ian Anderson character the more convinced we become that we are wise to distance ourselves from him.


Finally, if you would prefer to be deleted from our SCN circulation list then simply e-mail us with the word "unsubscribe". Alternatively, if you liked this SCN and think more of your friends would like to receive copies then please let us know their e-mail addresses!
See you again next month!
