January 2019 Edition.


January 2019 edition

Ever since the end of WWII one of the biggest obstacles facing any patriotic party or organisation throughout the West has been the existance of closet neo-Nazis within their ranks, or attempts by those who harbour neo-Nazi sympathies to infiltrate their movement. This has inevitably provided much easy ammunition for leftist forces opposed to any expression of patriotism or national self-determination.

A classic example of this occurred in the UK during the late 1960s and early 1970s, when an originally authentic patriotic party called the National Front rapidly rose to prominence. Although the vast majority of the members and supporters of this party were true and loyal British patriots who were proud of their country’s contribution to the defeat of the scourge of fascism during WWII, a fatal mistake was made by the leadership of this party by allowing certain individuals to join who had well-documented neo-Nazi pasts. This clique of fascists somehow managed to usurp control of the party, which gave the leftist media a field-day in smearing the party by publishing pictures of the usurpers wearing full Nazi regalia, with the clear implication being that this extremist mindset was typical of all National Front members. Even though a sizeable body of members then resigned from the party to form the authentically patriotic National Party of the UK the same smear was easily applied to them because of their past association – even though the very reason for their resignations was their loathing of the neo-Nazis who had taken over their former party! (A full account of the history of the National Party of the UK can be found in the middle-page spread article of S.A.Patriot-in-Exile No.37).

The problem was alas much the same in South Africa – though here of course the resulting outcome was fatal. The notorious Brendan Willmer, who usurped control from the other founding members of the Save Rhodesia Campaign before establishing the South Africa First Campaign with financial backing from the Department of Information, had been an active member of an overtly neo-Nazi organisation in the UK before emigrating, and when this was exposed in the South African media – complete with pictures of him in a Nazi uniform - it of course catastrophically damaged the reputation and effectiveness of the campaign. More famously and even more disastrous for the future of the country was the pantomime AWB outfit, which with its clear neo-Nazi imagery and rhetoric gave the liberal media in the country the easiest of tasks in smearing all those who had foolishly associated with it. At the time of the vital 1992 Constitutional Referendum the size and influence of this bunch of clowns was of course exaggerated out of all proportion, with the result being that the “No” campaign lost votes in the tens of thousands. The rest, as they say, is history.

Elsewhere in the West from the end of WWII until the turn of the century the situation was much the same, with the presence of those with well-documented neo-Nazi sympathies – and in some cases actual Nazi-era affiliations – in otherwise genuine patriotic organisations provided the easiest justification to smear these bodies. With the advent of the new millennium and the fading of the Nazi-era into history such smearings have become far more difficult however. The 5-Star Movement in Italy and Fidesz in Hungary have managed to rise to power with no hint of neo-Nazi connections, and both the PVV in the Netherlands and the Sverigedemokraterna in Sweden have similarly managed to make strong electoral advances. Even Marine le Pen in France has seen it advantageous to distance herself from her father who was often smeared for alleged neo-Nazi sympathies, with resulting electoral triumphs far greater than her father ever managed to achieve.

In Britain UKIP constantly eschewed all membership applications from anyone with even a hint of previous neo-Nazi connections – often going overboard by so doing and thereby losing much potential support. As a result, however, UKIP managed to obtain electoral success far greater than the National Front could ever have dreamed of. Now however a new breed of young patriotic leaders such as Tommy Robinson and James Goddard, plus an increasing number of female activists, have arisen in the UK who have no neo-Nazi connections whatsoever, and who are too young to fall under the influence of those beguilded by the false imagery of the Nazi-era. The new UKIP leadership has wisely decided to work closely with this new breed, and as a result the party has now been re-galvinised.

As we imply, this scenario is much the same throughout the West, most notably by the Gilets Jaunes movement in France. The new generation of patriotic activists are well aware of the evils of Naziism and the fakeness of Holocaust denial, and have rejected both forms of lunacy. Instead they have become increasingly influenced by the glories of the past achievements of their own nations – particularly by their technological and entrepreneurial achievements and their triumphs during the great age of European Imperial expansionism. They therefore have no need for the fancy-dress fantasies of the neo-Nazis – and furthermore all anti-Semitic paranoia can now be left to Corbyn’s vile Labour Party!



On Thursday 31st January the Springbok Club will be holding its 2019 AGM..All current members will of course be informed of the full details of this event in due course, so if you wish to participate and aren’t currently a member then you better forward your membership payment as soon as you can! After the business side of affairs has been concluded Mr. Gary Vincent will be giving “part 2” of his illustrated talk about the Battle of the Falkland Islands (see the Patriotic Forum News section of the December 2018 SCN), to which all supporters, whether members or not, will be welcome to attend. For more information either e-mail: springbk@netcomuk.co.uk or ‘phone: 07711188430.

In February the Springbok Club will be staging a visit to the Brunel Museum in London, and later during the year the organisation will be hosting a number of interesting meetings featuring several eminent guest speakers. More details about all these events will of course be given in future editions of the SCN.



On Friday 25th January the Patriotic Forum will be holding a double celebration. This will include a traditional supper to be held at a well-known establishment in the City of London in order to celebrate Burns’ Night, and a short ceremony at the bust of Admiral Arthur Phillip (the founding Governor of New South Wales) behind St.Paul’s Cathedral in order to celebrate Australia Day (well it will be Australia Day in Australia itself at the time!). Following this double-celebration the Patriotic Forum will be celebrating New Zealand Day in early February by staging a trip to certain sites in central London associated with the founding and colonisation of New Zealand. If you are interested in participating in any of these celebrations either e-mail: swinton@netcomuk.co.uk or ‘phone: 07711188430 for more details.

On “Brexit Day”, March 29th, the Patriotic Forum is planning a special celebration. Although the original intention was to join in the festivities which will take place in central London, a more intriguing and fascinating suggestion has recently been made, and that is to go to Brussels in order to witness the ceremonial last lowering of the Union Flag outside the EU headquarters (which has evidently already been arranged by the EU authorities), and to cheer. Regardless of the final decision, full details will of course be given in next month’s SCN.

We’ve recently received this further harrowing report from the Network for Animals organisation regarding appalling conditions for dogs in the “new” South Africa, which gives great cause for concern. It reads as follows :-

“In ‘Freedom Park’ in Cape Town, South Africa on a recent rescue mission we were warned by police to leave because our lives were in danger from gangsters.

“’Freedom Park’ is a crime-ridden slum where gang-related, drive-by killings are commonplace and we’ve been shot at before. But the hundreds of dogs there are in such desperate need that we thanked the police and got on with our work.

“Not even risking our lives will deter us from helping these poor dogs who are sick, hungry and routinely abused.

“Starving, sick and abused animals lined the streets as we cautiously drove in search of a semi-safe area from which to base our rescue operation. As we drove, we were besieged by people asking for dog food and care for pets.

“They brought scrawny puppies, led old, sick dogs to us for help and pleaded with us to give them dog food.

“We found a starving pit-bull called Passion. She was living in the mud, cold and wet, with open sores on her body. Passion was so scared she urinated in fear when we approached. We could not leave her so we persuaded her owner to let us take her. She will join hundreds of others at the Fallen Angels shelter, where she will be loved and nursed back to health.

“There are so many dogs in distress in South Africa that we are constantly overwhelmed. We need your support to help these dogs.

“There is a deep underlining problem that desperately needs attention in Mitchells Plain and my NFA team is committed to providing it.

“We want to start a vitally important education programme to help people understand that just like you and me dogs feel fear and pain – and that man has no right to cause them to suffer just because he has the capacity to do so.

“For the animals,

“Brian, Gloria and Max, Founders and CEOs”

Margaret Court was undoubtedly Australia’s greatest female Lawn Tennis player ever, winning 24 Grand Slam singles titles. It was therefore no surprise when the Australian Lawn Tennis authorities decided to name one of the two main arenas at the new Australian Open Complex in Melbourne after her. Following her glittering Lawn Tennis career Margaret Court entered the Christian ministry, becoming an ordained minister at the Victory Life Centre Church in Perth, and also became a fearless moral crusader campaigning against perversions in society such as homosexuality and pedophilia. This unsurprisingly did not go down well with the homosexual lobby, and calls were made by them (headed by Margaret Court’s former rival player from the United States, Billie-Jean King, herself an admitted lesbian who had deserted her devoted husband) to have the arena in Melbourne named in her honour re-named. Happily the Australian Lawn Tennis authorities have so far rejected this disgusting request, and should be saluted for so doing. For all her victories on the Lawn Tennis courts around the world, Margaret Court’s greatest triumph will undoubtedly be in trying to protect children and society in general from the ravishes of sexual perversions by her moral crusading.



A supporter from Australia has recently forwarded us a message which he has received from Katie Hopkins, the courageous British journalist who has taken a strong interest in the quasi-genocidal farm murder epidemic currently taking place in the “new” South Africa, and has been prepared to publicise these atrocities. It reads as follows :-

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be emailing you to let you know that our documentary - *Plaasmoorde: The Killing Fields* – is now all yours, for you to watch and share.

”Many of you will have seen clips and columns, from my time in the country, but this is the full story. For my new friends and our brothers and sister in South Africa, I really feel it is important that you watch it.


”Plaasmoorde literally means "farm murders" in Afrikaans, and this documentary follows my journey through South Africa, meeting the White farmers being systematically cleansed from the land.

”There are the heartfelt accounts of the victims like brave Bernard, whose own father was bludgeoned to death on his driveway. His young sons confide their wish to end their lives to be with their grandfather.

”The Black gangs shot at Bernard’s little son, and missed. But the bullet hole in the wall of his family home is still there - a daily reminder of their terrible past every time they go through their front door, and a visible scar, unlike the mental scars now suffered by his wife and sons.

”All of the Rebel Media team (including the burly security team) were left in tears on the grass as he told his story in his front step, overlooking his farm. And in quiet moments I think of him and his family often.

”This documentary is a tough watch, but it's an important one too. There are truths from serving police officers and distinguished academics which clearly counter the lies we are told in the mainstream press; that there is no problem in South Africa, that this is all some terrible figment of my imagination.”


Another item sent to us by another Australian supporter indicates an intriguing means by which South African farmers could escape from this terror. This article can be accessed at :-




2018 marked the 50th anniversary of John Enoch Powell’s epoch-marking and prophetic “Rivers of Blood” speech, in which he warned of the dire consequences to the British nation should continuing numbers of unassimilatable immigrants be allowed into the country. Although his warnings were taken notice of for a while, the problem arose again during the 1990s, accelerated considerably by Britain’s membership of the Common Market/EEC/EU - another great mistake by post-WWII British governments which Enoch Powell constantly warned against. A supporter from Sussex recently informed us about two YouTube videos featuring this famous and heroic speech of Enoch Powell. With Brexit fast approaching so that at least one of these national mistakes which Enoch Powell warned against will soon be rectified, it is probably a good time to be reminded of the other great problem which he highlighted which still faces the British nation These YouTube videos can be accessed at :-

No.242 - Mrs. INA BURSEY and Mr. LES BURSEY of Rhodesia.

Ina Bursey was the President of the Rhodesian Action Party (which campaigned in favour of continued resistance and national self-determination) during the final dramatic days of the Rhodesian nation during the late 1970s. Her then youthful son Les was also a strong supporter of the party and campaigned alongside his mother in favour of a “No” vote at the decisive Rhodesian constitutional referendum of 1979, and joined the tour undertaken by officials from the Save Rhodesia Campaign of South Africa around the country in order to advocate a “No” vote. It is doubtful whether Ina Bursey is still alive, but Les almost certainly will be, so it would therefore be very interesting to learn where he now is.

There was nothing in the obituary to Les Hompstead which you published (see September 2018 SCN – Ed.) which could possibly suggest that he wasn’t modest, nor was there anything in it which any reasonable person could possibly object to – as his daughter Sheila Ayling, apparently speaking on behalf of her two siblings as well as herself, evidently did! (see December 2018 SCN – Ed.).

I have a theory about what caused this inexplicable reaction from her however. Les Hompstead was a great man who achieved great heights in life. None of his three children have done anything of note in life however, with both daughters entering into inappropriate first marriages which both inevitably ended in divorces. Could it be that his children are simply jealous and embarrassed by their failures to live up to their father’s high achievements?

Yours etc.,

H.K.H., Gillingham, Kent, U.K.

[ I think some of the comments expressed here are a little unfair. Although never ascending to the dizzying heights of his father, Trevor has still enjoyed a very happy and successful marriage and family life, and Sheila herself has also enjoyed a far better and long-lasting second marriage, founding a very successful jewelry business with her second husband in Fareham. – Ed.]




I believe Sir Winston Churchill to have been the greatest Briton. I also believe him to have been right about many things - helping the poor before the First World War, Communism, Nazism, immigration (wanted to control it in 1954), the Common Market (he was against Britain joining) and the British Empire.

I am an "Empire man" and proud of it - we should be teaching the good things about the Empire rather than digging in the dirt like Yasmin Alibhai-Brown and Jeremy Corbyn would have us do. For instance, Britain took the lead in the fight against slavery when she certainly wasn't forced to. The term "concentration camps" did not have the pejorative meaning in the Anglo-Boer War that it has now - it was used to describe POW camps in the First World War. The Anglo-Boer War ones were meant as protected villages set up to provide the Boers of assistance, shorten the war, and save British lives. The land in Africa did not "belong" to anyone until Europeans established title to and cultivated it.

Finally a suggestion. How about teaching the history of Africa after its over-hasty decolonisation?

Yours etc.,

Mark Taylor, London, U.K.



In the November 2018 Edition of the SCN we praised the BBC series “Empire”. We are afraid, however, that we can’t do the same regarding the BBC’s subsequent historical series “Invasion!”, which was presented by Sam Willis.

This series set out to show that Britain had been “invaded” several times since the Norman Conquest of 1066, but then even more unjustifiably tried to assert that Britain was a “nation of immigrants”. Both of these claims, however, are not only controversial, but are also false.

The term “invasion” always implies a movement by one group of people into the territory of another which is unwelcome, usually (though not exclusively) by means of armed force. Although such moves against Britain were planned by the Spanish during the late 16th century, Napoleonic France in the early 19th century and the Nazi Germans in the mid 20th centuries, none of these plans ever came to fruition. The two “invasions” quoted in this series which did include the movement of armies into Britain, the expedition of Prince Louis of France during the 13th century and the Glorious Revolution of 1688, were actually a result of invitations from the existing British authorities in order to remove unpopular monarchs, so therefore can’t be regarded as “invasions” at all! The first of these was of course terminated by mutual consent almost as soon as it had begun, and the second resulted in the cheering of the Williamite forces all the way from Brixham to London. Some “invasion”! As for the other examples given by Sam Willis, such as the Dutch bombardment of Chatham Dockyard in 1667 and the French landing in Pembrokeshire in 1797, these were simply raids with no intention of ever remaining permanently. All these examples of so-called “invasions” were therefore wild, wild exaggerations.

But it was Simon Willis’s claim that Britain is a “nation of immigrants” which was the most alarming distortion of history. This has been an unsubstantiated claim made by liberal egalitarians ever since the 1960s in order to justify their misguided dream of a multi-racial society. The fact of the matter is that ever since the evolution of humans all lands throughout the world have been subject to the movements of people – but those territories which are islands or isolated peninsulars, such as the British Isles, the Scandinavian peninsular, Japan, Australia and the Pacific islands, have been less subject to such movements than most. Furthermore, when we refer to waves of immigration we are inevitably talking about movements of people only since the advent of recorded history, i.e. only during the past 3000 or so years. The truth of the matter is that prior to the Windrush disaster of the late 1940s all the immigrant numbers who moved to Britain were not only relatively small, but were also exclusively White, and in all but one case since the Roman invasion of some 2000 years ago were of Nordic racial stock. The first homosapien inhabitants of Britain were the Nordic Kelts and Picts, who were followed by the Nordic Anglo-Saxons and Jutes after the Romans had left, and then by the Nordic Vikings and Normans (whose name literally meant Norse-men!). After that immigrant groups were small in number and consisted almost exclusively of other Nordic people from north-west Europe – the Flemish, the Dutch and the French Huguenots. All these peoples were therefore not from a different racial group, but simply different tribes of the same Norse race. The only immigrant group of any significance who were not Nordic were the Jews – but they to their eternal credit never tried to assimilate or inter-marry with the host population, but rather kept to themselves and maintained their own distinctive culture. Apart from Scandinavia the British Isles has thus proved to be the most racially homogeneous place in Europe, and prior to the Windrush invasion the population of Britain was undoubtedly about 99% Nordic in composition.

The BBC therefore did a great disservice to their licence fee payers by broadcasting such a blatant and dangerous piece of fake information.
