April 2019 Edition.


April 2019 edition

Britain was due to have left the hated European Union on 29th March 2019. The 17.4 million Britons who voted for this national salvation – by a massive majority of one and a quarter million – were understandably very annoyed and unhappy by the subsequent delay. When the revised of 12th April was also put back by a monstrous length of six months this annoyance turned into extreme anger, and as a result there is now a real danger of violent protests erupting in the streets.

There are many people and sections of society who are to blame for this current Brexit shambles. Most notably of course there in the Prime Minister, Theresa May, and her clique of supporters, both within the cabinet and in the civil service. The withdrawal deal which she brought back from Brussels was clearly flawed and totally unsatisfactory, and its unpopularity was emphatically demonstrated by its massive historic defeat in the House of Commons. In spite of this clear demonstration of its unacceptability – particularly concerning the Northern Ireland “backstop” clause - Mrs. May subsequently stubbornly and pig headily refused to go back to Brussels and demand the necessary alterations, and neither has she threatened a “No Deal” withdrawal if such amendments are not forthcoming. In spite of all the goodwill which Mrs. May enjoyed at the start of her premiership she now stands condemned by the majority of Conservative Party members and the nation as a whole.

The second group who must be criticised are the “absolutists” in Parliament. Of course they were completely correct in opposing Mrs. May’s flawed deal during its first vote in Parliament, and perhaps also for the second, but once it became obvious that Mrs. May and her clique were not going to budge and that the alternative to her deal was not going to a “No Deal” exit but rather an indefinite remaining in the hated EU (thanks to vile Corbynite Labour Party support as it subsequently turned out!) then they should have voted tactfully and supported the lesser of the two evils. The most important matter, surely, should have been to ensure that Britain left the EU as soon as possible, for once a sovereign nation again then it would be far easier to alter Mrs. May’s awful deal unilaterally, and perhaps even to refuse to pay the draconian £39 Billion “divorce settlement” demanded by the EU!

The third group who must be criticized are Mr. Nigel Farage and his clique of sycophants. At the current dangerous time it is surely important that a united front of opposition to continuing membership of the EU is presented, particularly as elections in the UK to the EU Parliament are now after all expected. Rather than returning to his old party, UKIP, Mr. Farage and his supporters have instead decided to establish their own anti-EU party, the so-called “Brexit Party”. The only result of this of course will be the splitting of the anti-EU vote at a time when it should never be more united. We have actually had increasing doubts about Mr. Farage for some time. We remember well how he bizarrely claimed that the “Leave” vote had narrowly lost the 2016 Referendum well after the fact that it had actually won a decisive victory was obvious to all other observers, and even more worrying was his sinister calling for a second referendum. Mr. Farage, it would seem, is now simply on an ego-trip, and his primary aim appears to be to protect his own EU parliamentary salary and other perks. We therefore call on everyone to reject his splittist “Brexit Party” and to give full support to UKIP at any Euro Elections which may be forthcoming.

All these developments alas remind us strongly of what happened in South Africa during the 1980s. The “absolutists” within the HNP refused to countenance any co-operation with the Conservative Party of SA because they didn’t regard their policies as being 100%, and as a result opposition to de Klerk’s sell-out treason was divided between the HNP and the CP of SA at a time when it never should have been more united. As a result of this “absolutism” and refusal to form a common front, South African patriots thereby lost their entire country. This should therefore be an object lesson for British patriots currently fighting to regain their national independence. The same mistakes should not be made again.

But what is now the most likely means of ensuring Brexit comes about, badly delayed though it already is? The most important action which must be taken by the Conservative Party hierarchy and membership is to ensure that the intransigent Theresa May is removed as party leader as quickly as possible. Once this happens then we must all hope that the Conservative Parliamentary caucus includes Mr. Alexander Boris Johnson as one of the two names to be submitted to party members – for among the membership he will almost certainly prove to be the most popular candidate. Once installed as Prime Minister he must then call a General Election as soon as possible for, as Mr. Tony Blair the former New Labour Prime Minister has observed, Mr. Johnson is so charismatic and popular that he is bound to trounce the divided and despised Corbynite Labour Party. At this General Election the anti-EU parties – both UKIP and Farage’s ego-tripping “Brexit Party” – must concentrate all their energies on unseating Euro-fanatic Conservative and Labour candidates, and not oppose any members of the ERG or other Brexiteers. With a then probable EuroSceptic Conservative landslide victory Mr. Johnson’s new government could set about arranging for a proper Brexit to take place almost immediately, even if it means a “No Deal” departure!



The Springbok Club held a most enjoyable and successful double-celebration buffet-meeting earlier this month, to celebrate not only Van Riebeeck’s Day but also the 100th Anniversary of the birth of the Hon. Ian Douglas Smith. The guest speaker at this event was Mr. Stuart Agnew MEP, the UKIP MEP for the East of England, who delivered a masterful talk about not only his own time living and working in Rhodesia, and also gaving a most informative report-back on his recent trip to the “new” South Africa as part of an official European Parliamentary Delegation which were tasked with investigating the facts concerning the current endemic of farm attacks and murders in that beleaguered land. Also present at this meeting were Mr. Robert Phillips (whose family knew the Hon. Ian Douglas Smith and his family well, and who brought along a memento of the great man to show to everyone) and Mr. Neil Farnell (who initiated the famous 1976 Rhodesian Tour), both of whom said a few words about their respective experiences. At the end of the meeting Mr. Alex Knox-Wylie led the singing of both the Rhodesian and the British national anthems, and full thanks are therefore due to all these people – and others – who helped to make the whole event such an outstanding and memorable success.


On Saturday 4th May the Springbok Club will be staging a trip to the popular traditional Rochester Sweeps Festival. Assemble at or in the vicinity of The King’s Head, 58 Rochester High Street, between 13.00 hrs and 14.00 hrs. ‘Phone: 07711188430 if you have problems finding the rendezvous point.


In June the Springbok Club will be visiting a place of significant historical interest in east London, and in July will be holding a meeting to be addressed by a most interesting guest speaker with strong Southern African connections. More details of both these events will be given in next month’s SCN



On Saturday 20th April the Patriotic Forum will be holding a special event to celebrate the 77th anniversary of Malta being awarded the George Cross. This event will consist of visits to both the house and the grave of Lt.Gen. Sir William Dobbie in the Blackheath area, after which an informal talk will be given about Malta’s recent history and current sentiments on the island towards its positions in both the EU and the Commonwealth. (Lt.Gen. Sir William Dobbie – aka “Dobbie of Malta” - was the Governor General of Malta during the early part of WWII, and the letter accompanying the award of the George Cross to the colony from King George VI was addressed to him). Rendezvous in or outside The Crown, 49 Tranquil Vale, Blackheath (which is a short distance away to the left of the main entrance to Blackheath Railway Station) between 13.00 hrs and 13.30 hrs. ‘Phone: 07711188430 if you have any difficulty finding the rendezvous place.


In late May the Patriotic Forum will be holding a special meeting in order to mark Empire Day at which a very prominent personality will be guest speaker. Fuller details will be given in next month’s SCN

We have recently received the following further most harrowing report from the Network for Animals organisation regarding conditions currently pertaining in the “new” South Africa. It reads as follows :-

“Every day in the poorest areas of South Africa, we and our partners at Fallen Angels witness harrowing cruelty to innocent dogs.

“On a recent search and rescue mission in Wellington, a poor farm area in the Western Cape, we were tipped off about abuse so bad, we could barely believe it.

“A drunken and incredibly twisted man had tied up two dogs in his backyard and was deliberately starving them to death – all for his obscene entertainment.

“When he was drunk, he took pleasure from kicking the helpless dogs who were so weak from hunger, they collapsed.

“We rescued these pitiful dogs and renamed them Germaine and Susan. The innocent creatures were in very bad shape, terrified, starved and skeletally thin. Just looking at them brought tears to our eyes. They had sores all over their painfully thin bodies and needed to be rushed away for immediate medical treatment.

“Germaine and Susan had only ever known beatings, kickings and viciousness from humans and were so petrified that they cowered away in abject fear when we came near to help them. The only love they ever had was from each other. Their devotion to each other was so beautiful.

“They say true love is selfless and Germaine proved it. When we picked up Susan, Germaine fought desperately to ‘protect’ her, clearly willing to die for her.

“Germaine and Susan are now safe at the Fallen Angels shelter we support with the kind help of animal lovers like you. They are slowly and tentatively learning to trust humans and we hope they will find forever homes together. Please, if you possibly can, donate today to Network for Animals so we can help Germaine and Susan and so many other innocent abused dogs.

“For the animals,

“Brian and Gloria Davies (and Max) founders and CEO.”

On Wednesday 10th April Rugby Australia terminated the contract of their current full-back Israel Folau. This termination of contract had nothing to do with anything that Folau did on the pitch, nor was it because of any crime or act of violence which he had committed. No, it was simply because certain people within the Rugby Australia hierarchy and their main sponsors, Qantas, the national airline, objected to a posting which he had made on Instagram. This posting made by Folau, a devout Christian, read: “WARNING Drunks, Homosexuals, Adulterers, Liars, Fornicators, Thieves, Atheists, Idolaters, HELL AWAITS YOU. Repent! Only Jesus Saves.”.

So what was the objection of the Rugby Australia and Qantas managements to this posting? Was it the criticism of Drunks – eh, no. Was it the criticism of Adulterers - eh, no. Was it the criticism of Liars, Fornicators, Thieves, Atheists or Idolaters – eh, no! It was purely because of Folau’s criticism of homosexuals! This reaction has undoubtedly been because of fear of the homosexual lobby, which is evidently very strong in Australia. This cowardly acquiescence to a minority pressure group of course denies Israel Folau both his rights of free speech and his religious conscience, and is therefore not only sad but also very disturbing. Their stance is furthermore not only morally wrong, but also very bad business sense, for there are undoubtedly far more Christians in Australia than there are homosexuals – and don’t forget also that it is not only Christians who regard homosexuality as morally repugnant!

Voltaire, the French philosopher, once said: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”. [Voltaire of course made this comment in French, but this is the most widely accepted translation]. The Rugby Australia and Qantas authorities should remember this maxim of Voltaire’s. We wish Israel Folau well.



A supporter from Australia has recently informed us about a very encouraging YouTude video of Senator Fraser Anning of Queensland addressing a rally drawing attention to the quasi-genocide campaign currently being waged against Whites in the “new” South Africa. It can be viewed at :-



The New Zealand National Front has recently informed us of a rally which was held Aotea Square in Auckland on Saturday 2nd February which they participated in, which was in protest against the UN Migration Compact that seeks to take over the control of New Zealand's borders.

They informed us that: “Included in the Compact deal is: 1) New Zealand media not being allowed to report negatively on Mass Immigration, and 2) Children required to be taught in schools that Mass Immigration is good (much the way that diversity is taught today)”

and they add that: “If this deal goes through the way the UN wants then the New Zealand we know will be lost forever”.

We congratulate the New Zealand National Front on their efforts in alerting people to this worrying situation, and wish them every success.



In the May and June 2018 editions of the SCN we reported upon how a Canadian lady journalist by the name of Lauren Southern had been doing sterling work in writing articles and creating YouTube videos informing the wider world about the ongoing quasi-genocide campaign against Whites in the “new” South Africa. We were subsequently informed that Ms. Southern had been barred from entering the UK, which we couldn’t understand and indeed initially didn’t believe. A supporter from the United States has now however forwarded us a YouTube video of a press conference which was recently staged in Brussels which not only confirmed that Ms. Southern had indeed been barred from entering the UK, but also explained the disputable reasons for this. This YouTube video can be viewed at :-

We of course not only congratulate Ms. Lauren on all the excellent work which she has been doing in highlighting the plight of our kith and kin in South Africa, but also fully support her rights of free speech. Furthermore our wider movement will shortly be initiating a campaign to try to have her barring from the UK overturned.

No.245 - Mr. GERARD DE WOLF of Hacienda Heights, California.

Gerard de Wolf from California in the United States was a good friend of South Africa during the days of civilised rule, and an early subscriber to S.A.Patriot magazine (though we never knew precisely how he ever obtained his first copy!). He worked as a pensions advisor, and is believed to have been many times married. He visited South Africa during the early 1980s and made contact with us in Durban, and proved to have a most friendly and out-going personality. It also turned out that he was a good personal friend of Aida Parker, the esteemed South African patriotic journalist, and indeed he took out a subscription to S.A.Patriot on her behalf (though unfortunately we never received any direct contact from her as a result). Gerard maintained written contact with us throughout the 1980s, but alas after we were forced to re-locate to the UK this contact seemed to cease. It would therefore be very interesting to learn what became of him.



Jani Allan, the famed and popular South African journalist now based in the United States, has recently informed us of an excellent and extremely well-researched article which she has written for The Epoch Times detailing the facts about what is really happening in today’s “new” South Africa. This article has now been placed on The Epoch Times’ web-site, and can be accessed at ;-





Thanks and once again a great SCN [January 2019 Edition – Ed.]. Yes, Margaret Court, a gentle women, has been receiving a great deal of flack from the nasties. She needs our support, but she is a strong woman as well.

Yours etc.,

This year has seen Ian Smith's centenary. Looking at Rhodesia then and Zimbabwe since, may I suggest that a lot of people owe him a posthumous apology?

What a horrible letter you received from Mrs. Sheila Ayling! [see March 2019 SCN – Ed.]. The unpleasant tone of this letter only seems to confirm my initial observation about this woman and her two siblings which you published earlier [see January 2019 SCN – Ed.], namely that their antipathy to the original glowing obituary which you wrote praising their father Les Hompstead caused them severe jealousy and embarrassment because none of them had achieved anything near the high achievements in life which their father had obtained.

One further perhaps darker factor is probably involved here. I believe that Mrs.Ayling and her two siblings were cousins on their mother’s side to the notorious hoodlum and delinquent Michael Tull, who was involved in much trouble in the Medway Towns during the 1950s and 1960s. Perhaps there is a genetic malfunction involved here?

Yours etc.,

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

[ Although Michael Tull was legally the cousin of Sheila Ayling and her siblings Trevor and Joy (their respective mothers Dorothy Norman/Tull and Peggy Norman/Hompstead were sisters), he was actually an adopted child, and therefore not a genetic relative of the Hompstead siblings. See tail-piece article “The Nature versus Nurture Debate” – Ed.]




The deal struck by Donald Trump is not a submission or a defeat, it is like the calculated retreat from Dunkirk. Donald Trump is Winston Churchill and Nancy Pelosi is Hitler.

For decades there has been a fierce debate within scientific circles about whether nature (i.e. genetic origins) or nurture (i.e. up-bringing) has the more dominant effect upon an individual’s, behaviour, intellect and character. Although all logic and common-sense suggests that the former is the most important, and although most well-conducted scientific experiments have confirmed this, there have alas been those with a biased ideological agenda who assert that the latter is more important. Recent correspondence in the SCN regarding the Hompstead family has however reminded us about one individual who provides classic confirmation that nature (genetic origins) is far more important – Michael Tull.

Michael Tull was adopted by his adoptive parents John “Jack” Tull and Dorothy Tull (née Norman) in 1948. His birth name is uncertain, but it is known that he was the illegitimate son of an Italian-American airman stationed in the UK after WWII and a local East Anglian country girl. His adoptive parents were both staunch Methodists who were fanatical – and we mean fanatical – supporters of the Temperance Movement, and to them not only alcohol but also tobacco were verboten. John “Jack” Tull was an intelligent man who was a fully qualified naval architect, but he was captured by the Japanese during WWII and was a prisoner-of-war for several years. This terrible experience only intensified his Christian faith however, and he became far more austere and humourless. Whether his imprisonment made him impotent is not known, but the fact remains that after his liberation he and Dorothy were not able to produce any children of their own, so they applied to adopt a child and Michael was allocated to them.

They showered Michael with love, but also insisted that he share their own strict Methodist faith and all the puritanical restrictions which went with it. In spite of this upbringing, however, Michael proved to be an uncontrollable tear-away, and even at infants school he started vicious fights for no reason, with on a number of occasions his victims being almost strangled. As a result of his uncontrollable violence he was placed in a special school, but even with all the extra individual attention which this entailed he proved to be an academic failure, and left school with no proper qualifications. His one keen interest turned out to be nature (and here his natural instincts rather than his upbringing clearly came to the fore) and because of this he was sent to an agricultural training college. After only a short period there he was expelled however, the official reason being because “he failed to look after himself”, but quite clearly there was something far more sinister involved here. After this disaster he joined the Army.

The military discipline proved to be exactly what he needed however, and his 22 years in the Army proved to be the only really happy and successful period of his life. He was posted to a cavalry regiment and trained to become a farrier, an occupation which he evidently loved and excelled at. He married late in life, and after retiring from the Army his military commanders helped him to establish his own farrier’s business in the Forest of Dean. Alas as soon as he left the Army his old demons – or as we would prefer to say his natural instincts – came back to haunt him. He got into fights and became subject to substance abuse – whether this was alcohol, tobacco or something stronger, or possibly all three, is not known – but when his puritanical Methodist upbringing is remembered it becomes quite clear that it was his natural genetic instincts which were dominant in his character and behaviour, and not the way that he was nurtured as a child. He died in the late 1990s aged barely 50, and although his death certificate states that he died of pancreatic cancer it was substance abuse which was clearly the underlying reason.

Apart from his years in the Army Michael Tull’s life was sad and pitiful, and on the face of it his existence was practically worthless. If however his life can be shown as an object lesson confirming that one’s genetic make-up – one’s DNA – is far more important in shaping one’s personality than one’s upbringing, and if society can learn these lessons and adjust accordingly, then his life may yet prove to have been worthwhile.
