April 2003 Edition.


April 2003 edition

The tyrant Saddam Hussein is no more, and his evil Ba'athist regime has been destroyed. This is reason to rejoice not only for the people of Iraq who have suffered so long under his despotic rule, but also for all of us in the West who Saddam Hussein threatened with his weapons of mass destruction, and the international Islamic terrorism which he sponsored.

Not all residents in the West are rejoicing of course. The Muslim interlopers in our midst have suffered a severe and hopefully fatal blow to their aims of undermining Western nations by subterfuge and sheer weight of numbers. Likewise the Marxist Left have seen a potential ally in their struggle to destroy our Western way of life eliminated. These two groups were of course the unlikely bed-fellows who staged the despicable pro-Saddam Hussein demonstrations in London and other Western cities on February 15th - a hideous spectre which we hope never to witness again.

Unbelievably, however, we have recently learnt of another sinister element which has opposed the just and necessary military action taken by the West to destroy the evil tyranny of Saddam Hussein. Incredible though it might seem, there is evidently a sickly clique of so-called "Right-wingers" who have openly sided with the forces of Islamic terrorism against their own kith and kin. To be sure, some of these self-proclaimed "Right-wingers" subsequently stated that they supported their troops once the the War in Iraq had actually been declared - but these are mere weasel words, as the West's War against Terrorism had actually been in existence since September 11th 2001 when Islamic fanatics (undoubtedly in collusion with the Iraqi Ba'athist regime) hijacked and crashed aircraft into the World Trades Centre and the Pentagon. Some of us, indeed, would argue that this conflict between the West and Islamic expansionism had actually begun far, far earlier.

It would be natural to expect, of course, that members of the political "Right" in the West would be the most "gung ho" in favour of military action to destroy the centres of Islamic power. They, after all, are always the first to moan about the (often wildly exaggerated) numbers of Muslim immigrants in the West. So why has this (admittedly small) clique adopted such an dumbfounding attitude towards the conflict, which is the exact antithesis of what would be expected of them? To term them hypocrites would seem to be the understatement of the century! The reason is probably far more sinister than this however, for the only conclusion that can be reached is that this small clique is comprised of total phoneys. We know from our South African experiences how the NP government set-up a number of phoney organisations and individuals in order to divide and discredit authentic patriotic opposition to their sell-out policies (the AWB outfit and the late and unlamented Brendan Willmer being the most obvious examples of this), and so is it not likely that Leftist forces in Western establishments have also set-up disruptive elements within the midsts of their opponents? We know for certain that at least one member of this sickly clique has a history of causing trouble within authentic patriotic movements in the UK.

By their own words these phoneys have revealed themselves as the traitors which they are. We have no intention of listing their names in this periodical, but we know who they are, and they will face nothing but contempt and ostracism from now onwards.



The Springbok Club staged a visit to the Royal Engineers Museum in Gillingham at the end of March, for what proved to be a truly fascinating experience. During the visit those present were able to view, inter alia, artefacts from the Zulu Wars and the silk Chinese robes worn by General "Chinese" Gordon during his secondment to the Imperial Chinese court. A trip to this museum is therefore highly recommended to everyone.

Alas the turnout for this visit was surprisingly low, but several more supporters joined for the second event of the day, which was an informal pub gathering staged by the Kent Branch in Rochester. All in all therefore a most happy and successful day.



Circumstances have prevented the planned Springbok Club activity for April, but the London Branch will be holding a most interesting meeting to which all supporters are cordially invited. The details of this meeting are as follows:-

Date : Tuesday 29th April 2003

Time : 19.15 hrs for 19.45 hrs

Venue : The MORPETH ARMS (the upstairs Function Room), 58 Millbank, Westminster, London SW1 (close to the Tate Gallery and Vauxhall Bridge - nearest tube station: Pimlico).

Guest Speaker : Mr. ROY PAINTER

Mr. Painter had a distinguished military career as a wireless operator in the Royal Corps of Signals, seeing active service in Korea during the Korean War. He stood as official Conservative Party candidate for the Tottenham constituency during the 1970 General Election, and has been an active member of the Enfield Southgate Conservative Constituency Association for many years. He has been a firm and steadfast supporter of the South African and Rhodesian causes, being an active member of a number of pro-South African and pro-Rhodesian organisations during the 1970s, and is now a highly respected north London businessman.



The Springbok Club will be holding their annual Empire Day buffet-lunch in central London on Saturday 24th May. Fuller details will be given in next month's SCN.

The Chilterns Branch of the Springbok Club will be holding an informal pub gathering in High Wycombe on Saturday 31st May. Springbok Club Organiser, Robert Shipley, will be attending, and will give an overview of his thoughts concerning the situation in southern Africa today.

During June the Springbok Club will be holding a meeting at which supporters will give report-backs on their recent trips to South Africa. The Kent Branch will also be holding their annual summer braai on the Isle of Sheppey on Saturday 28th June.



The London Swinton Circle staged a well-attended meeting last month which was addressed by David Heathcoat-Amory MP. In his address Mr. Heathcoat-Amory drew attention to the great dangers being posed by the proposed European Constitution, and stated that if, as seems likely, the present Labour Government accepts these proposals, only a national referendum would provide the opportunity to escape from this further EU entanglement.

Details of the next London Swinton Circle meeting are as follows:-

Date : Monday 12th May 2003

Time : 18.45 hrs for 19.00 hrs.

Venue : The Function Room, The Red Lion, 48 Parliament Street, Westminster, London SW1.


Mr. Delderfield is the founder and National Chairman of the New Britain Party, and also editor of their monthly journal, and for 18 years he was a member of the Court of Common Council of the City of London.

Julian Francis writes as follows:-

"I was born in Gwelo on the 23rd December 1976. In my life I have lived in many other countries, including the United States, but I currently live in the UK.

"In my travels I have found it hard to explain to people what it was like growing up in Rhodesia and then Zimbabwe, what the country and people were and are like. To that end I have decided to start collecting memories and thoughts on what Rhodesia was like with the aim of writing them up into a book that will be the memoirs of a people. I would be most grateful if you would take the time to write down your memories of what Rhodesia was like so that I can add to this knowledge.

"Every year we all get older and the memory of what things were like dim and it would be shame to let all these memories fade from the collective memory of mankind. I feel the time is right, given the situation in Zimbabwe today, for the world to listen to our story."

Malcolm Wren, the "Engelse Boer", will be doing a 150 mile walk across southern England in July/August. He will be placing 1500 ribbons - 10 per mile - for each person, each Soul, murdered in the vicious farm attacks in South Africa. The purpose of this exercise is to draw attention to the Afrikaner Genocide currently taking place.

A Canadian who understands such matters has listed the Afrikaner farmer at level 5 on the endangered list, and the United Nations has declared South Africa to be the most violent country in the world which is not officially at war. They state that you are 10 times more likely to be killed in South Africa than anywhere else on earth. They specifically mentioned that this included the gang-related warfare in Russia, and the drug-related warfare in Columbia. Furthermore, the Afrikaner farmer is 4 times more at risk than any other group in South Africa. This makes them 40 times more at risk than ANYWHERE else in the world.

Since 1994 more than 1400 South African farmers have been murdered, and 50% of farmers have permanently left farming as a result of these ongoing attacks. Murder is the only motive, as in 95% of the attacks nothing was stolen. Whilst it is not only the Afrikaner farmers who are being murdered, but also other Ethnic-Europeans as well as tribal Black farmers, Afrikaners make up more than 90% of those murdered. The actual number per capita is still increasing, and now stands at 311 per 100,000. There is strong evidence to show that these attacks are politically motivated.

The world however remains oddly silent. Maybe we are partly to blame for not showing the world what is happening? With his "Soul Walk" Malcolm hopes to alter this silence - by raising awareness.

The "Soul Walk" will start on Sunday 27th July at Avonmouth, Bristol, and Malcolm will walk approximately 13 miles each day for 12 days, ending at Gravesend, Kent on 7th August, i.e. from the Severn to the Thames - from the west to the east of England.

If there is anyone willing and able to accompany Malcolm along the route this would be greatly appreciated - otherwise it will be a Soul Walk & Walking Solo.

There was a dictator named Bob
Who had the most marvellous job.
He could murder and steal
Without missing a meal
Because he hired such a good mob.

No.54 : Mr. KEITH THOMPSON of Marlow.

Keith Thompson was one of the earliest subscribers to S.A.Patriot, and lived at Marlow in Buckinghamshire. He served in the RAF, and helped found the "Bluemax Museum" of WWII aviation at the Booker Aerodrome in High Wycombe. He was also a leading member of the "League of St.George" (a traditionalist English group) and was their Overseas Liaison Officer. We have recently been informed that he has moved from Marlow to the Southend area, but alas do not know his precise address there. If anyone could inform us of these details so that we can amend our records we would be most grateful.



We have recently been informed of an excellent site honouring England's patron saint, St.George, which has as one of its main contributors Garry Bushell, the much respected popular journalist. As St.George's Day approaches we can heartily recommend this site, which can be accessed at:-

I heard a sad story today about a South African lady who very recently visited her family in Canada.

When she returned home to South Africa she decided not to emigrate, but to contribute in South Africa. Soon after she got home she was abducted, gang raped and left for dead in a squatter camp. Her "rescuer" then repeatedly raped her as well and she died three days later. Common story; too common.

Ali Bacher is of Christian Lebanese origins and NOT Jewish. Anything other than Christians were classified in South Africans as non-White when they originated in any Middle Eastern county in the good old days.

The bloody media hone in and distort some events and give the wrong impression. One would think that the Australian public is on Iraq’s side in this coming war. The truth is that the protesters are in the minority even though the media says that they are in the majority. The figure appears to be around 65% support Howard’s stance. Obviously the protesters fall in to the following categories:

1) The Labour Party who evidently think that at long last they have a cause which might win them a few points and are busy behind the scenes organising the protests.

2) The Moslems who have now come out against Australia’s interests as I predicted many years ago. Familiar faces of their leaders are out in front on TV, and no doubt are in a coalition with the Labour party.

3) The usual rent-a-crowd who revel in civil disorder.

So take all the rat-bags out of the equation and we end up with a much smaller minority.

Yours etc.,

Nick Maine, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

I am pleased to see that you are re-enforcing the message that action against the regime in Iraq is necessary. Virgil wrote; "Beyond the lusts of man and the desire for war lies only the gates of hell." It is not us that wants this war, it is Saddam Hussein.
