March 2015 Edition.


March 2015 edition

In spite of the fact that news from the “new” South Africa seems to appear very rarely in the overseas media nowadays, two recent reports which we have received have demonstrated yet again just how dire the situation is in that beleaguered and decaying country.

The first anonymous item (which we actually received from two independent sources) reported on a recent paranoid anti-White speech made by President Zuma of the ANC regime in which he stated, inter alia, that South Africa’s problems had begun when Jan van Riebeeck landed at Cape Town. After pointing out that Cape Town didn’t even exist when Jan van Riebeeck landed at Table Bay in 1652, the anonymous writer then went on to demonstrate how everything had been built and established in South Africa purely through the White man’s enterprise and genius, whereas ever since the ANC regime were handed power everything in the advanced Western state which the White man had developed has been systematically destroyed. This article, which we re-circulated via our Springbok Special Circulation List, has generated a considerable amount of interest and praise from supporters around the world, with one supporter from Australia aptly and correctly responding with the single word “Brilliant!”.

The second report which we have recently been alerted to evidently originally appeared on the web-site, a site now sinisterly “blocked” (presumably by the ANC regime), showing that some 68,800 Whites had been murdered by Blacks in the “new” South Africa since the ANC terrorists were handed power in 1994. This of course works out at 3276 such murders a year, or almost 9 per day. Many if not most of these murders have seemingly been motiveless, so therefore clearly constitute what can only be described as a quasi-genocide campaign – of the type openly advocated by the ANC leader Mandela prior to his arrest and imprisonment for terrorist offences in the early 1960s. The strange thing about this sickening statistic is that although the total number of Black-on-White murders in the “new” South Africa is rarely if ever quoted, those specifically involving farm murders on the platteland are frequently mentioned and detailed on many sites on the Internet (over 4100 at the latest count). We honestly can’t make out why it is only these farm murders which receive so much attention, when quite clearly a far greater number of these genocidal atrocities take place in urban inner-city areas.

It is therefore quite clear from these two reports that South Africa has now reverted to the dark days of the Mandela era. We have been criticized in the past for saying that the interlude when Thabo Mbeki was in power was a relatively benign period for the Whites of South Africa – but we stand by this assessment, Mbeki’s lunatic theories about the causes of HIV/AIDS notwithstanding. Unlike Mandela, unlike Zuma, and unlike even his own father, Thabo Mbeki was never a “hands-on” terrorist; he never had any direct blood on his hands. Furthermore the realities of power certainly seemed to temper Mbeki’s action, and it was he, not Mandela (as is often ridiculously claimed in the overseas media) who was a would-be “reconciliator” in South Africa – but this of course is precisely why the ANC hierarchy were determined to depose him and to install a more Mandela-like figure in his place.

The latest news from South Africa, both about Zuma’s provocative attack on Whites and about the true murder statistics, demonstrates yet again why it is so important for all Whites who value their lives and the safety of their families to leave the country as soon as they can. Already even Zuma is being criticized for being too lenient towards Whites by certain elements both inside and outside the ANC, with the sinister spectre of Julius Malema waiting in the wings. Malema, of course, is the true successor to Mandela; he was his most vociferous praise-singer at the time of his funeral in December 2013, and openly wears a t-shirt bearing his smirking image. In a way, however, the sooner Malema and his savage cohorts can seize power the better, for that will mean that the complete collapse of the “new” South Africa will happen sooner rather than later – and thereby that the re-establishment of order and civilized rule can come about far earlier than most observers probably predict.



Alas we have heard absolutely nothing from any of the remaining members of the Springbok Club Committee about who they have elected/appointed to take the place of the previous Organiser of the organization following his resignation at the end of January – and neither have we been informed by any of them about any subsequent or planned future Springbok Club activities. Needless to say, we will be reporting on any developments in this direction in future editions of the SCN, as and when we learn about them.



Unfortunately the Swinton Circle’s planned March meeting at which the anticipated guest speaker is to be a leading member of a like-minded philosophical society has still to be finalised. Full details will of course be circulated to all members and supporters of the Swinton Circle in due course.


The Swinton Circle is delighted to announce that its book-selling arm – Swinton Books – has now been established. An Amazon Seller’s Profile upon which all books available will be advertised will be activated very shortly. All Swinton Circle members and supporters should by now have been circulated with details about this new development within the organization, so if you haven’t already received any information please let us know.


Membership fees and donations to the Swinton Circle can be made via PayPal on the organisation’s web-site home page at - simply 'click' on the line "PayPal = the safer, easier way to pay online" at the bottom of the home page; if the error message "This content cannot be displayed in a Frame" appears then simply 'click' on the line "Open this Content in a New Window".


The Swinton Circle is also happy to confirm that the organisation’s Twitter presence has now been re-activated. This can be followed on Twitter @SwintonCircle. Let’s hope therefore that we can increase the number of followers rapidly!



A supporter from Lancashire, Micky van Rensburg, has recently enquired about whether anybody knows where dart-flights with Springbok designs can be obtained? If anyone can help Micky with this information please contact him direct at:



We have recently received a most happy and encouraging report about the liberation of eight rabbits from an animal experimentation laboratory in the United States, and who have now been given a new home at the Mino Valley Farm Sanctuary. This report, which includes a most uplifting video-clip of the rabbits enjoying their first hops of freedom, can be viewed at :-



We received the following ‘end of year update’ about the situation concerning that great South African patriot Clive Derby-Lewis from his wife Gaye a short while ago, which reads as follows:-

“An end of year update on Clive Derby-Lewis’s current medical and legal positions.

“As you know a Medical Parole application was launched as far back as March 2014, and was amended and re-launched in July. Nothing was heard of since then, although certain doctors apparently from the Medical Parole Advisory Board (MPAB) examined Clive in September. No decision on Clive’s release however was forthcoming.

“We approached the court on behalf of Clive, the applicant, about this lack of action by the MPAB, and on 2 December 2014, the court ordered that the MPAB ‘consider all medical reports applicable to the applicant (Clive) on 10 December 2014 and that the applicant was to be provided with these recommendations by 15 December 2014’. Needless to say this court order has been completely ignored!

“In addition, and also as part of the court order mentioned above, the SA Communist Party is to have its submission ready by 9 January 2015. (I wrote to the SACP by way of an open letter saying that if their “submission” was to include their assertion that Clive never told the truth during his trial and that there is a wider conspiracy, then the SACP must bring the proof to backup these assertions, otherwise I’m going to lay a charge against the SACP with the police for defeating the ends of justice, which is a criminal offence.

“I can’t think what the contents of a submission by the SACP would be other than something political, such as what I mentioned above. It shows the depth of their depravity that they would try and stop the release of a 79 year old man with terminal cancer just because they hate him. No, they actually fear him! The fact that the SACP is submitting anything at all is a travesty, but then that is the state of our system that the SACP rabble can have something to say in a medical parole matter.

“It could be probable that the 9 January deadline may also be ignored.

“The onus is always on us to chase after the government and the authorities who are supposed to obey court orders. We will have to ask the court to rule on a contempt of court matter. More attorneys, more effort, more delay.

“As far as Clive’s health is concerned, he is as well as can be expected given that he will be 79 on 22 January and that he has. Inter alia, advanced lung cancer. He is still in hospital – he cannot go back to prison because there’s no care there – so things just continue as they are, with the authorities dragging their feet, scared to death of the Communist Party charlatans.

“On another front, we are launching a separate application for parole, based purely on the merits. Nothing to do with his medical position. Clive was due to be legally released on parole on 15 October 2008, but this date was ignored by the authorities. We were forced to go to court, the first of many occasions concerning parole. Clive was recommended for parole four times, and each time he was refused by the ANC/SACP minister concerned. This new application will be the fifth application for parole.

“Many thanks for your continued support. I’ll keep you posted.”



A leading member of the Swinton Circle attended the big PEGIDA march and rally in Newcastle-upon-Tyne last month, and reports as follows :-

“There is a great stirring in Europe - the ‘Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West’ known by the German Acronym ‘PEGIDA’. PEGIDA is strongly critical of the anti-freedom tenants of Islam and is skeptical about the alleged peaceful nature of the Islamic faith. After gathering crowds of up to 25,000 in Dresden it was announced that PEGIDA would finally come to Great Britain on the fine day of February 28th 2015 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The announcement attracted high-profile condemnation from Bradford West ‘Respect’ MP George Galloway and the ‘comedian’ Russell Brand who promised to organise and attend a counter-demonstration.

“By eleven o’clock on the day of the rally the wind picked up in Newcastle’s Big Market to make the Union flags flutter proudly. The clouds parted to illuminate the faces of hundreds of PEGIDA supporters from a diverse array of backgrounds: young working men, army veterans, pensioners and even Germans had come to defend Britain’s freedom that day.

“A variety of organisations were represented on the PEGIDA side. The flag of the veterans’ organisation Hope of Heroes flew from the centre of the crowd. The standard of the Taliban Hunting Club also made a brief appearance!

“In spite of claims by the counter-demonstration (which organized under the misleading title of Newcastle Unite) of extremist links to PEGIDA, totalitarian politics were clearly welcomed in Newcastle Unite’s counter-demonstration. The flag of the tyrannical failed state, the Soviet Union, flew high from the masses. The wailing of an alleged two thousand counter-protestors was drowned out by PEGIDA with a little help from the PEGIDA PA system. Our hearts swelled as we sung ‘No surrender to Taliban’ and we laughed as the Prophet Mohammed’s name was greeted with jeers of ‘Paedo! Paedo!’

“After being addressed by some stirring speakers including the young leader of PEGIDA, Matt Pope and leader of Liberty GB, Paul Weston, the event came to a proud end as ‘There will always be an England’ reverberated through the Newcastle City Centre. The supporters shook hands, wrapped up the flags and went their separate ways.

“Our small group were in high spirits as we walked through Newcastle’s Chinatown and readers can only imagine our delight when we chanced upon old George Galloway himself, passing by barely visible in the centre of his Muslim entourage. ’Go home George!’ we suggested laughingly.”



Viewers of the recent BBC series “Inside the Commons” were probably surprised to learn that the Houses of Parliament were plagued by rodents – mice and even rats. Happily we can report that the worst and most obnoxious of these rats, commonly known as “Peter Hain” will be removed from the House of Commons at the forthcoming General Election. Our only regret is that this particular venomous vermin can’t be removed entirely from society!



We believe that most if not all of our readers have been angered by the decision of the BBC to suspend the popular non-pc television presenter Jeremy Clarkson and his programme “Top Gear” from the screen, so would therefore like to sign the petition calling for his re-instatement.

The narrative gives the reader an overview of the history of the White man in southern Africa with detailed emphasis on the Rhodesian story through the life and times of PK van der Byl, one of the major players in a political drama that ended in the accession to power of Robert Mugabe under the auspices of the British government. By his very nature PK was controversial and confrontational. This account is likely to give offence to some because it portrays him as bluntly as he was in real life. Much can be contested about PK van der Byl but few will dispute he was an extremely colourful character with a devilish sense of humour. This memoir covers his life with a full flourish while doing nothing to detract from the seriousness of the international political and military conflict in which he was engaged. The reader will glean new information on a highly controversial subject and emerge with a more sympathetic understanding of what PK van der Byl and his colleagues did and strove for. The human tragedy that has followed the removal from power of Ian Smith and his Rhodesian Front party will almost certainly force the reader to deal with some uncomfortable conclusions, of value to anyone sincere about grappling with the volatile and deeply troubling challenges that confront all Africans today.

No.196 : Mr. BILLY SCHEEPERS of Durban.

Billy Scheepers ran a very successful car salesroom and motor repair garage in West Street Durban during the 1970s. A friendly, affable and highly professional businessman, he decided to move to “pastures new” during the early 1980s. It would be very interesting to learn how his new career turned out, and where he is now.



We have recently been alerted to a most estimable charity called the “Refugee Action Choice Service”, which aims to encourage and assist non-British immigrants return to their homelands. It is well worth recommending to all immigrants in the UK who need to return home, and can be accessed at :-





I remember once asking you about Owen Parvess [see Obituaries, SCN December 2014], among others. Seems he was a good bloke.

You and your followers should know that you have a lot of Russians friends who understand and support you.

The British leadership should be saved. We can see that the pro-German putrid policy in Europe fails more and more. The EU became the economical and political prison for many nations. Most Russians think that the UK, France and Italy should be FULLY independent and leave the EU.

Frau Merkel can gather weak, noisy and pauper gnomes such as Lithuania, Latvia, Georgia, Moldova, etc. They can best exist in the EU. They cannot survive by themselves. But the GREAT nations must be INDEPENDENT from the "European yoke".

Yours etc.,

Although the basic premise contained in A.B.D.’s letter [see SCN February 2015] is totally accurate, it does unfortunately contain several historical inaccuracies, which I list below :-

1) Britain did not “take the Cape from the Dutch by force in 1806”. The Cape Colony was peacefully ceded to Britain by the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1814, after the Dutch East India Company had been seriously weakened by the Napoleonic Wars.

2) “The Afrikaners” did not come to power in 1948. The National Party was returned to power in 1948, after having previously been the leading party in a coalition government with the Labour Party from 1924 to 1934.

3) The Voortrekkers did not leave the Cape in 1834 “to escape British oppression”. Relations between Afrikaners and British settlers in the Cape were basically very cordial – as can be seen by one of the first friezes in the Voortrekker Memorial at Pretoria which shows British settlers presenting the Voortrekkers with Bibles before their departure to colonise new untamed lands, and wishing them well.

4) The Voortrekkers didn’t completely abandon Natal in 1843. A considerable number remained and happily accepted British colonial control of Durban and its environs (Port Natal), particularly in the north of the province where they formed the New Republic.

5) The Transvaal was not named by the British. The very word is Dutch/Afrikaans in origin. It was only when the Transvaal and the New Republic merged that the Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek was formed.

6) The Union of South Africa did not embody a utopian dream of “multi-culturism, diversity and enrichment”. It was a merger of two former independent White countries and two White colonies. As correctly stated elsewhere in the letter in question the policy of separate development (apartheid) was de facto already in effect by that time.

7) There is absolutely no chance that “by about 2050 White, Caucasian, Keltic Britons will awake to find that they are a minority in the land of their birth”; this is simply a leftist/liberal myth circulated in order to induce pessimism and defeatism amongst Whites – and not only in Britain – and thereby to help them push their multi-culturist agenda.

It is a pity that all these historical errors occurred, because at heart this was an excellent letter warning about the dangers of further immigration and multi-culturism.

One de Klerk has a lot to answer for, but then again the sheep were induced to vote YES in a referendum and thereby a one-way ticket on the back of a lorry to the abattoir awaiting them.

See Winnie has surfaced again claiming the ancestral land. You could not make this lot up. Any White who remains there knows the risk and is prepared to sit it out in the sun. Very sad.

I read a disturbing piece in the Evening Standard a few days ago. It was about the extraordinary violence of young Blacks towards each other. Of course the term they used was 'gang members'. Reading the papers these days is like decoding Isvestia. You have to read between the lines.

Please send greetings on my behalf to the [Springbok Club] AGM from Tasmania. It is good news that the British will be establishing a new Royal Navy base in Bahrain. Here in Australia we are busy selling our souls out to the Red Chinese. Our countries are surely bereft of leadership. On the good news this coming Monday is our national birthday day, Australia Day, January 26th when the first British settlers arrived at Sydney Cove in 1788 and raised the Union Flag, led by Captain Arthur Phillip. There are those here, who find nothing good about Australia and criticise the observance of our national day. These people, while constantly negative about our land, nonetheless chose to continue to live here. So greetings from your friend in Tasmania and I wish all well for the New Year.

Yours etc.,

Reg A.Watson, Lindisfarne, Tasmania, Australia..




It was with great sadness that we recently learnt of the death of Gina Shaw, the enthusiastic stalwart of the Rhodesians Worldwide Kent Branch.

Rhodesian-born, she was baptized as Mary-Ann Reid but adopted the “nickname” of Gina at an early age, and even following her marriage she was always known colloquially as Gina Shaw. She lived firstly in Salisbury where she attended Hatfield High School, and then in Umtali, where as well as working as an administrator for one of the largest companies in the city she also became heavily involved with amateur dramatics.

She moved to the UK during the late 1990s, when she immediately became active in the Kent Branch of Rhodesians Worldwide, where she became a much loved figure, supervising the rotas and organisation for the branch’s successful monthly braais.

Gina was a “doer” rather than a member of the “all talk but no action brigade”, and exemplified everything which was great about the Rhodesian spirit. She will be sorely missed. Our sincerest sympathies are extended to her daughter Kim and to her grandson.



Most readers will recall the extreme problems which the Swinton Circle encountered during 2008 when an unsuccessful “coup” attempt was staged in order to allow a clique of neo-fascists to infiltrate the organisation. As a result of this failed “coup” three Swinton Circle members who were proved to be involved with the infiltration attempt had to be expelled. Two of these expelled members were the erstwhile Organiser of the organisation Allan Robertson and the Tunbridge Wells-based Christopher Luke. A supporter has however recently spotted a most strange and puzzling message on FaceBook which was sent by Luke to Robertson on the occasion of his 49th birthday. This message is in the public domain, so we are therefore not betraying any confidentiality. It reads as follows :-

“Many happy returns old boy! Just another fifty-one years to go before you hopefully receive a telegram from the old queen of Royal Tunbridge Wells! Best wishes today and always Allan. xx”.

What can this mean?!?
