November 2002 Edition.


November 2002 edition

The result of the recent Gibraltarian referendum, when 98.97% of the voters rejected any form of joint sovereignty and sell-out to Spain, brought great joy and encouragement to all patriots in Britain and South Africa, and indeed throughout the West.

This near unanimous vote by an entire people demonstrated the unity, defiance and determination of the people of Gibraltar, and compared more than favourably to the Rhodesian referendum of 30th January 1979 (when only 14.6% of the electorate voted to continue the struggle) and the South African constitutional referenda of 1983 and 1992 (when on both occasions only about one-third voted for their nation to survive). At least the Rhodesians fought for 13 years in defence of their country, and then seemed to have little alternative other than to surrender when "stabbed in the back" by John Vorster's South African NP government, but the results of the South African plebiscites remain as inexplicable now as they did at the time.

As was stated during one of the recent pro-Gibraltar demonstrations in London: "Gibraltar is the new Rhodesia", and indeed many of those present at this demonstration had also been keen supporters of pro-Rhodesian activities 30 years earlier. Furthermore the enemies that are faced today who wish to sell-out Gibraltar are the same as those who wished to sell-out Rhodesia during the 1960s and 70s - and in the case of the odious crypto-terrorist Peter Hain one and the same person!

The result of the Gibraltarian referendum would seem to confirm that there is a completely different zeitgeist around now at the start of the 21st century than there was at the tailend of the 20th. The tide has turned.



The London Branch of the Springbok Club held a successful meeting in central London last month, which was addressed by Mr. Allan Robertson, the Deputy-Chairman of the Springbok Club and Chairman of the London Swinton Circle.

In a well-researched and reflective speech Mr. Robertson told how his interest in the nations of southern Africa had been ignited when he joined the "Scottish South Africa Society" which opposed sanctions against South Africa during the 1970s and 80s. He then went on to give an overview of southern African history, emphasising how the region had been subject to political manipulation a century ago just as it is today. He praised the work of Louis Botha and Jan Smuts in co-operating closely with Britain through the British Commonwealth, but then added that South Africa had no choice but to leave the Commonwealth following MacMillan's notorious "Winds of Change" speech, which heralded an awful descent into barbarism right across Africa.

He also reminded everyone of how South Africa, Rhodesia and SWA had been bulwarks for the West against the spread of Communism during the era of the Cold War, yet conversely it was sinister elements in this same West who worked for the destruction of Western civilisation in Southern Africa during the same period. Finally Mr. Robertson called on the Springbok Club to form alliances with other similar organisations both in South Africa and throughout the West to defeat the subversives in our midst.



There are still a few places available for this year's Springbok Club UDI Day Dinner. Once again the details are as follows:-

The dinner will be held at a venue in central London on Saturday 16th November 2002. Assembly will take place from 18.00 hrs onwards, with the dinner itself commencing at 19.00 hrs.

The guest of honour at this function will be a leading Zimbabwe human rights campaigner who has been a leading organiser of protest demonstrations in London against the current tyrannical regime in Zimbabwe. We have decided not to disclose his precise identity at this stage as he still has family living in Zimbabwe.

The price for this dinner, which will consist of a three-course meal, will be £19.50 per head. As places will be limited they will be allocated strictly on a "first come first served" basis. All payments (which should be made payable to "Patriotic Press") should therefore be forwarded to: The Springbok Club, BCM SAPAT, London WC1N 3XX, UK, as soon as possible. All those who wish to attend are also asked to select their menu options in advance, which consist of:-

1st Course : Smoked Chicken Salad or Melon Wedge.

2nd Course : 2 Grilled Rainbow Trout or Roast Loin of Pork and Apple Sauce Seasoning.

3rd Course : Treacle Sponge and Custard or Fresh Fruit Salad and Cream.



The next meeting of the Kent Branch of the Springbok Club will take the form of an informal pub gathering, and will be held at the "Jolly Knight" in Rochester High Street (10 minutes walk from Rochester Railway Station) during the afternoon of Saturday 30th November, from 14.00 hrs onwards. Although this will be an unofficial gathering it is hoped that the branch committee for the forthcoming year will be elected on this occasion. In order to discover where the gathering is assembled look out for the Springbok Rugby jerseys, or alternatively ask at the bar.

The London Branch of the Springbok Club will be holding a social during early December, and full details will be given in the December edition of the SCN.

The next meeting of the Chilterns Branch of the Springbok Club has been put back until early next year in order not to clash with other SC activities.

As was mentioned last month, the problems caused by an original supporter of the Lancashire Branch of the Springbok Club pulling out are still unfortunately handicapping the official launch of this branch. It is anticipated that the branch will be officially inaugurated early during 2003 however. All those in the Lancashire area (or who know people in the county who might be interested) should contact the branch direct at:-



The Springbok Club will be holding its annual Day of the Vow Commemoration in central London during the evening of Monday 16th December. Buffet snacks will be available, and it is hoped to welcome a very high-profile personality as Guest of Honour. Full details will of course be given in the December edition of the SCN.

The 2003 AGM of the Springbok Club has been provisionally planned for Thursday 23rd January. Supporters are reminded that only paid-up members of the SC will be entitled to attend this meeting, and only Honorary, Life and Full Members will be entitled to vote. Membership rates are still £500.00 for Life Membership, £20.00 for annual Full Membership (reduced to £12.00 for students and senior citizens) and £5.00 for annual Associate Membership. All membership payments should be made payable to "Patriotic Press" and forwarded to: The Springbok Club, BCM SAPAT, London WC1N 3XX, UK.



The London Swinton Circle held a highly informative and well-attended meeting in the Houses of Parliament last month, which was addressed by Lady Winterton (the former Ann Winteron). She spoke under "Chatham House rules" which prevent any reporting on what was said, but we can confirm that the message which she gave was both positive and encouraging.



The latest pro-Gibraltar demonstration in London, which was held in Whitehall opposite Downing Street on the day of the Gibraltarian referendum, proved to be a great success. Many Springbok Club members and supporters were present among the large crowd, as well as many Gibraltarians who were in London at the time, and with whom good contacts were made. Once again there was almost unanimous support from passers-by, which greatly boosted everyone's morale. A letter addressed to the Prime Minister was delivered to Downing Street by Mr. Dennis Delderfield, in which the government was called upon to respect the wishes of the Gibraltarian people.

Don't forget Namibia!

A very interesting article appeared in the London "Sunday Times" recently regarding the Black racist SWAPO terrorist Sam Nujoma.

Will Namibia's Whites be the next to be forced to flee as the world looks on and does nothing?

White South Africans have learnt nothing of the history of Africa, and the traitors many of whom live abroad now (THANKS!!) gave the country away.

Yours etc.,

Last month my dad sent me a book from America, it just didn't arrive - and that's the second time the same book has been stolen.

When I complained to the post master (a "new" South African) he said I must go to the post office and complain. When I told him I was at the post office he looked at me sheeply and said nothing.

Sometimes I wish they would extend "affirmative action" to monkeys in the zoo, because I am quite sure a baboon could do a better job than most of these cretins can - as I am 100% convinced they are more intelligent.

The post office in this country boast that "90% of all mail arrives at its destination, it's just us doing our bit for you". I don't see how they can boast about that figure because if a million mails are sent in a day, that means 100,000 letters aren't being delivered because they have been stolen, and that in my book is a lot!

Yours etc.,

A supporter from South Africa has recently sent us the following most interesting press report concerning young Mr. Arthur Kemp. Kemp, it will be remembered, originally gave the impression of being a strong supporter of "S.A.Patriot" during the 1980s, but he subsequently turned State Witness at the trial of Conservative politician Clive Derby-Lewis, and then, after we revealed information which tended to prove that he was in the pay of the "new" South African security services, initiated a childish smear-campaign of lies and innuendoes against us. Although now five years old, this article from the Mail & Guardian would seem to confirm - if any further confirmation was needed - that Kemp did indeed work for the National Intelligence Service.

Hani's flight of `coincidence'
Mail & Guardian Date: 21 Feb 1997
by Stefaans Brümmer

Flight SA 232 from Johannesburg to London on February 6 1993, two months before Chris Hani was assassinated, had three passengers of note the South African Communist Party leader himself; right wing journalist Arthur Kemp, who was later arrested in connection with his murder; and Inkatha Freedom Party militarist Philip Powell.

This "coincidence" was discovered by the Mail & Guardian amid allegations that Hani's assassination had been part of a plot that went beyond right wing politician Clive Derby Lewis and Polish immigrant Janusz Walus.

Kemp gave the tip off about the South African Airways passenger list to a London Sunday paper a number of weeks ago during an attempt to sell new evidence on Hani's assassination. The flight details were verified by M&G.

Kemp was not charged with the murder, but was used as a state witness in the trial he had supplied address details for the "hit list". This week, he remained mum, saying only: "I have a story to sell. I am prepared to negotiate the price."

In a letter to the M&G this week, Kemp invited the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to revisit the assassination claiming it would find nothing new as "there is nothing to hide".

Kemp, now resident in London, also denied he had been associated with the old National Intelligence Service (NIS), as claimed in the M&G last week. The allegation that he had been a source for the NIS had been confirmed by members of the police and the new National Intelligence Agency before publication. He did not deny he had earlier been with the police security branch.

SACP deputy secretary general Jeremy Cronin confirmed Hani had been on the flight, saying he had been with a delegation en route to Cuba.

Powell confirmed he had been on the same flight, saying he was on a holiday to London. He had encountered Kemp at Johannesburg International Airport before boarding, and had only realised Hani was on the same flight when he saw him at passport control in London.



It was with much sadness that we recently learnt of the tragic death of Mrs. Jan Hunter, the wife of Andrew Hunter, the Conservative MP for Basingstoke.

Since entering Parliament in 1983 Andrew Hunter has proved to be a consistant friend of Ulster and, during the days of civilised rule, South Africa. During all this time his wife Jan acted as his personal secretary and was a tower of strength to him in all his work.

Our sincerest sympathies are extended to Andrew Hunter and his two children at this most distressing and traumatic time.
