July 2015 Edition.


July 2015 edition

It was of course with great joy and relief that we recently heard the news that our good friend and great South African patriot Clive Derby-Lewis had been released from prison, albeit only on parole and with conditions which basically amount to house arrest. The message which we received from Clive’s wife Gaye informing us about this welcomed development reads as follows :-

“Clive was released on 5 June on medical parole, after a monumental court battle where the judge called the minister (who refused the medical parole application) dishonest and irregular, among other condemnations. What a vengeful, vicious bunch is the South African Communist Party neanderthals, right out of the politburo (but of course they enjoy the fruits of capitalism to the fullest!) Albert Schweitzer was right!

“So to keep him ‘buried’ they have sentenced him to house arrest. This is not parole of course. He’s not allowed to leave the house – can’t even attend church.

“However, Clive is at least out of prison and enjoying the sunshine and the QUIET. Nobody knows what it’s like in a South African prison. There is noise ALL THE TIME. They shout and they call and they play their music ad infinitum. So now after 22 years he has peace and quiet.

“He is bearing up well to his treatment.

“He will have his computer up and running soon so he can correspond with you himself.

“Thanks once again for your continued support and the support of your members and associates.

“Rest assured South Africa will slide down the slippery slope as we predicted. Why weren’t people listening?

“Anyway we take each day as it comes and Pretoria is such a beautiful place, we have wonderful indigenous trees and hibiscus and date palms in our garden, so it’s a real pleasure to enjoy a cup of tea on the grass and a chat with friends.

“Lots of love,


Clive Derby-Lewis was of course convicted of the murder of the terrorist leader Chris Hani - although not even the prosecution tried to imply that he was directly involved in the elimination of this known terrorist, only that he allegedly supplied the weapon which was used to kill him. The evidence which was presented to convict him in this regard was however so flimsy that it would never have stood up in the courts of any first-world country. So why was the ANC regime so keen to incarcerate and thereby to silence the highly-respected former Conservative MP Clive Derby-Lewis? The reason is that he was by far the most articulate and popular English-speaking spokesman for the White South African opposition, as he constantly confirmed by his powerful oratory and non-stop dynamism opposing the NP’s sellout policies throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. The ANC regime could live with opposition from the Afrikaner community (and there were – and still are – many able and articulate Afrikaner resistance spokesmen), but if the Afrikaner opposition could be united with their British-South African brothers in a display of White Unity then the ANC’s hold on power could well be threatened. Clive Derby-Lewis was of course the most likely person to be able to galvanize this united opposition. This is why he had to be silenced.

Our movement has constantly tried to highlight Clive Derby-Lewis’s plight, and indeed were instrumental in trying to establish a “Free Clive Derby-Lewis Campaign” during the mid-1990s. We were however asked by his family to abandon this campaign as it was feared that it might damage their attempts to have him released through the courts. We of course complied with this request immediately. Since then, however, we have tried the best we could (though we must admit that at times we may have somewhat neglected his plight as other aspects of the struggle became more dominant) to remind everyone about the terrible ongoing persecution which he was experiencing, as several past editions of the SCN and S,A.Patriot-in-Exile will confirm.

We of course extend to Clive every good wish both for a happy and successful life free from captivity, and hope that both his health can improve and that the draconian conditions of his release will soon be relaxed. We would also like to extend to him our apologies for the fact that we never tried harder to try to ensure his release.



The Springbok Club gave its full support to New Britain’s Canada Day celebrations earlier this month, a full report about which appears in the New Britain News section below.


The Kent Branch of the Springbok Club aims to hold a braai to celebrate Rhodes and Founders Day later this month. All fully paid-up members of the Springbok Club and all supporters of the Kent Branch will be informed of the precise details of this event in due course, but if any other supporters would like to attend please let us know by e-mailing


On Tuesday 25th August the Springbok Club will stage a meeting in central London which will be addressed by a visiting guest speaker from a well-known South African family. In September the Springbok Club has again been invited to participate in the annual “Raising of the Flag” ceremony in Norfolk, whereat the Organiser of the organization has once more been invited to deliver one of the keynote speeches. In October the Kent Branch of the Springbok Club will be staging an interesting conducted tour of some of the historic sites in the Medway Towns, and in November the organization will be holding its annual UDI Day celebration, when the guest of honour will be a prominent ex-Rhodesian..



The Swinton Circle was most honoured to be able to welcome Mr. James Lockwood as guest speaker for its June meeting, who gave a most riveting and eloquent talk about the life and career of Lord Carson (Sir Edward Carson). During the following questions and answers session Mr. Lockwood also told something about his experiences on the BBC Mastermind quiz programme, where his specialist subject had been the life and career of Lord Carson. We would therefore like to thank Mr. Lockwood for giving the organization such and informative and indeed inspiring talk about this great British patriot.


The details of the Swinton Circle’s July meeting are as follows :-

Date : Friday 31st July 2015

Time : 18.30 hrs for 19.00 hrs.

Venue : The Morpeth Arms (the upstairs “Spying Room”), 58 Millbank, London SW1P 4RW. (nearest tube station: Pimlico)

Guest Speaker : Mr. Paul Weston - the Party Leader of LibertyGB

Paul Weston was born in London and is currently leader of the increasingly prominent patriotic and EuroWithdrawalist party LibertyGB. As a highly respected writer for the Gates of Vienna web-site, he contributed many acclaimed articles highlighting the threat posed to the West by expansionist Islam. Mr. Weston stood as UKIP candidate for the Cities of London and Westminster constituency at the 2010 General Election before founding LibertyGB, for whom he stood as candidate in the South-East England EuroElection constituency in 2014. He also stood as their Parliamentary candidate for Luton South this year. He gave a highly impressive performance when interviewed by Andrew Neil on the BBC’s Daily Politics programme shortly before the General Election, and his speech following the recent PEGIDA march and rally at Newcastle-upon-Tyne was regarded by observers as a masterpiece. He rose to national prominence when he was arrested on the steps of Winchester Guildhall for quoting a passage from Sir Winston Churchill’s book “River War” which was highly critical of Islam – a ridiculous arrest which quickly resulted in no charges being leveled. Apart from politics he takes a keen interest in most sports, and enjoys a broad range of reading.

The title of his speech will be “The Threat from the Left”, though he will also touch upon the Islamic threat to British and European identity.


The Swinton Circle is delighted to announce that its book-selling arm – Swinton Books – is now fully up and running, with an Amazon Seller’s Profile upon which all books available are advertised now having been established. For more details please e-mail

New Britain’s Canada Day reception, held earlier this month, proved a most enjoyable event, and New Britain’s National Chairman, Mr. Dennis Delderfield, deserves full credit for organizing these pleasant celebrations. This event comprised of a Canadian-themed quiz (which was won by this present writer!), a brilliant speech about the recent history of Canada given by Ottawa-born Paul Griffin, the reading of a message received from the Canadian High Commissioner in London, and the playing and singing of the Canadian National Anthem by members of the Heroes Band whilst the Canadian Flag was raised and dipped by Linda Dopston. Wine was also served to attendees, and letters of fraternal support with the Canadian people were signed to be sent to both the Canadian Prime Minister and the Canadian High Commissioner.


Details of New Britain’s forthcoming “Keep the United Kingdom United” pageant are as follows :-

Date : Monday 27th July 2015.

Time : 19.00 hrs.

Venue : St.Selphulcre’s Church Hall, Holborn Viaduct, London EC1 (diagonally opposite the Old Bailey).

Professional singers and dancers from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales will be performing at this event, and the guests of honour will be Alderman Andrew Parmley (Sheriff of the City of London) and Mrs. Suzy Webb (Mayor of Spelthorne 2014/15).

Tickets cost £5.00 (which may be bought at the door), and for more information ‘phone: 020-72472524.


New Britain is also initiating a campaign advocating that the Republic of Ireland should rejoin the Commonwealth, and is encouraging all people of goodwill to write to the President of the Republic of Ireland, His Excellency Michael D. Higgins, at Phoenix Park, Dublin 8, asking him to consider taking such a step.



We were greatly delighted to hear the news that Gareth Edwards, the great Wales and British Lions scrum-half, had been awarded a knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List. Sir Gareth Edwards took part in probably the two greatest British Lions touring sides of all time, those to New Zealand in 1971 and to South Africa in 1974. He is universally accepted to have been not only one of the greatest scrum-halves of all time but also a fine sporting gentleman – and furthermore it must always be remembered that in order to take part in the 1974 tour of South Africa he had to withstand and defy a tremendous amount of intimidation and threats from the political Left. Sir Gareth Edwards is not the only Rugby great from that era who we believe richly deserves a knighthood however, as Willie-John McBride who captained the “Invincibles” during the 1974 Tour surely also deserves such an accolade. A campaign to encourage the awarding of a knighthood to Willie-John McBride is therefore shortly to be launched, and the details will be announced in a future edition of the SCN once the campaign begins.



We have recently received the following most disturbing report from the respected Network for Animals animal welfare organization. We ask all our readers to do the best they can to highlight this appalling situation which is being allowed to continue in the “new” South Africa :-

“The rhino-poaching catastrophe in South Africa is continuing without pause, as evil gangs slaughter rhino for their horns, using everything from machetes to assault rifles. The South African government is refusing to reveal the latest statistics on rhino poaching but experts say as many as ten rhinos are dying every day.

“One reason rhino are being slaughtered are people in Vietnam, who wrongly believe that rhino horn powder is a magical cure-all. As we well know, it cures nothing but the greed of the poacher, and then only until their next brutal kill.

“The work we do is usually not glamorous or headline grabbing; we work with the authorities to help them make sensible laws and improve anti-poaching abilities. We assist orphaned rhino, help anti-poaching efforts, and we lobby for sanity to prevail. We need worldwide bans on the trade in rhino horn to be implemented, maintained, and most importantly: enforced.

“If we are unable to act with conviction, our grandchildren may think of rhino as we think of dinosaurs: A facet of history, never to be seen again.”

We would like to thank our supporter who forwarded us copies of the “missing” three editions of our SCN which we initially were not able to download onto our SCN blog-spot, as reported in the April 2015 edition of the SCN. Needless to say, all these three “missing” editions have now been added to this blog-spot, so that all issues of the SCN from our first ever edition in August 1998 can now be viewed on-line at :-

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.200 – Dr. COLIN BARLOW of Rhodesia.

Dr. Colin Barlow, a dentist by profession and a keen amateur golfer, was a leading member of the Rhodesian Action Party who opposed what they saw as the sellout tendencies within the Rhodesian Government during the late 1970s. Together with other great Rhodesian patriots such as Owen Parvess he founded the Rhodesia Movement which proposed a last-ditch federal solution to save the country, and in this capacity he toured South Africa under the auspices of the Save Rhodesia Campaign during late 1978 to encourage Rhodesians living in South Africa at the time to vote “NO” at the vital Rhodesian Constitutional Referendum of 30th January 1979. He gave a highly inspirational speech at the Fonteinebleau Room of the Blue Waters Hotel in Durban during this tour, and gained many admirers for his determined and forward-looking stance. It would be very interesting to learn what subsequently became of him.



A supporter has recently forwarded us these most enlightening video-recordings presented by The Order of the Blue Sword, which although produced during the 1970s still accurately highlight many of the immigration problems which have re-surfaced during the post-Thatcher years. We believe that this will be of interest and will provide much useful background information for many of our readers, and can be accessed at :-





I once had a letter published in TNT magazine defending Julius Malema's right to free speech in the face of prosecution by the South African government. I trust that he will not object to my exercising mine in this respect and saying that the man is one or more of the following - a demagogue, economic illiterate, race baiting, fool. I was a passionate supporter of Ian Smith and Rhodesia in the 1970s and consider myself to have been vindicated for the last few decades - and this maniac wants to bring his policies down South? Compare and contrast Rhodesia and Zimbabwe!

As the BRICS nations fall out of favor with the West over the next decade it will be possible for a new nation which has mineral wealth and a good sea harbour. (Richards Bay should do it I think) to arise. In the meantime I believe TB, HIV/AIDS, Ebola and a whole host of other nasty illnesses will spread far and wide amongst the Bantu rabble that proclaim the RSA “Azania”, and their lands will prove “no farmer no food” as they take the farms by force. The Bantu are an idiot race of criminal thinking people. You know the Swedish government and their doctors have proved that criminality and people who commit senseless crimes are really just mentally ill. This sums up Mandela and his nation of murdering Ubuntu idiots quiet well. The ANC terrorised South Africa with bombs, murders and burning people alive in public till they got the retards to vote for them out of fear. The ANC gangsters will probably be in power for another 25 years, then the masses of Bantu youth by the million will rebel quiet violently and chase them out of government. By this time South Africa will be in total ruins while another blood-thirsty mongrel climbs over thousands of burnt corpses to the top just like Mandela did with his crime syndicate the ANC.

The April edition of the SCN was an excellent issue!

I have Peter Griffith's book "A Question of Colour" published in 1966. It's a pretty good read. Why doesn't the Church speak out over the grooming of British girls in Rotherham by Pakistani men?!

There is no underestimating the fact that those Whites remaining in South Africa are now in the cross-hairs of the Black majority. It is my belief that the political restraint exhibited towards Whites has ended.

As many readers may be aware, our movement and certain of our leading members have recently been subjected to a malicious and vindictive Internet harassment campaign. This all begun when one of leading lady officials contacted us warning us to beware of a certain Mr. Jack Sen, who had evidently initially been a UKIP candidate at the recent General Election, but who had subsequently been suspended by the Party, and was now apparently trying to latch onto and to ingratiate himself with the expatriate South African community. We therefore investigated Mr. Sen (or “Sennapods” as he subsequently became known), and discovered that he had indeed been suspended from UKIP membership – the reason being because of a number of repulsive anti-Semitic comments which he had uttered, specifically some of a more personal derogative nature which were directed at Ms. Luciana Berger, the Labour MP for Liverpool Wavertree, which were the subject of a Police investigation.

Sure enough, just a couple of days later we were contacted by Mr. Sennapods as pre-warned, though mysteriously he stated that he had been referred to us by a certain Mr. James Scrymgeour (Mr. Scrymgeour had previously attended a couple of Springbok Club and Swinton Circle meetings over the past 18 months, and indeed had always appeared a most friendly and genuine supporter – though significantly he had declined to join either organisation, and had objected to text messages being sent to him). Needless to say, we politely but firmly informed Mr.Sennapods that we did not wish to have any dealings with him. This was not only because of the unsavoury nature of his anti-Semitic stance which we had discovered, but also because he had openly stated that he was connected to an organisation called “The London Forum”. We had previously learnt something about this enigmatic outfit when they contacted us out of the blue towards the end and last year, but when we investigated them we discovered that in spite of their innocuous name they were in fact an overtly neo-fascist and indeed Holocaust-denying organisation, so we therefore of course declined their request for us to provide a speaker for one of their meetings!

The reaction of Mr. Sennapods to this rebuff can only be described as hysterical. He sent us a couple of abusive and threatening messages, in which inter alia he threatened to post smears about us on various unnamed American Internet forums which he claimed had large readerships. Sure enough, a couple of days later Mr. Sennapods sent us a copy of a defamatory item attacking us which had evidently been posted on an American web-site – but rather than being “large” this proved to be a totally obscure forum, and indeed was clearly of a rabid anti-Semitic nature! As one of our leading officials commented when he saw it, it was actually a “badge of honour” that we should be attacked by such vile people! The most bizarre aspect of this smear was the claim that our movement was not concerned about the plight of the Whites still trapped inside South Africa, and furthermore claimed that we denied that a genocide campaign against Whites was taking place! Such claims of course are the complete antithesis of the truth, as can so easily be disproved by examining all the documented records about our aims and activities over the past two decades! Anyone who could seriously believe and circulate these ridiculous lies must therefore be regarded as totally deranged! These disgusting smears however bear all the hallmarks of originating with the ANC regime, as we’ve known in the past that they’ve been spreading other similar such lunatic lies in order to try to discredit our movement with those still trapped in the “new” South Africa.

Shortly after Sennapods’ smear posting first appeared we started to be inundated with attacks both by e-mail and on our FaceBook page – but although initially very upsetting something very suspicious soon became obvious. The phraseologies used in all these attacks were very similar, and indeed in some cases the wording was totally identical. Quite clearly therefore they all originated from one source, though dozens of “sock puppet” names had evidently been used. This theory was further confirmed when after we had informed Mr. Sennapods that we would be contacting the Police to complain about his Internet harassment (something which we actually subsequently did) all these “sock puppet” attacks ceased just as quickly as they had begun!

The position of Mr.Scrymgeour in this whole sinister episode remains totally unclear, but what is clear to us is that just as was the case with the earlier evil smear campaign which we endured four years ago there seems to be a weird tie-up between the ANC regime and neo-Nazi cranks. At first though such a connection might seem highly unlikely, but both entities glory in the term “nationalist”, and of course both share a common paranoid hatred for the Jewish people. In view of the fact that we have reported Mr.Sen’s Internet harassment to the Police it is probably best not to comment at the moment about his suspected true intentions and motivations. All we will add is that what dumbfounds us most isn’t the fact that he was suspended by UKIP, but the fact that they ever selected him as a Parliamentary candidate in the first place!
