July 2006 Edition.


July 2006 edition

As could be expected, this year's soccer World Cup finals progressed with ultra-smooth German efficiency, with seemingly only Zidane's infamous head-butt casting a shadow over an otherwise expertly organised tournament.

But what of 2010?

Throughout this year's competition the German press has been full of articles expressing grave doubts about South Africa's ability to stage such a vast international tournament in only four year's time. Planned stadiums haven't even been begun, and other vital forms of infrastructure and communications are currently non-existent (there have even been suggestions that competing teams should be housed within Black townships!). German authorities have apparently already stated that they are prepared to "step into the breach" to stage the tournament again in 2010, and evidently both the United States and Australia have also expressed interest in becoming last-minute hosts in four years time.

The German reports haven't told half the story however. In the decade and a half since the National Party sold-out and surrendered the country, South Africa has been transformed from an advanced first-world nation to a third-world basket-case. South Africa is universally accepted as being the crime capital of the world, and has the planet's highest rate of AIDS infection. The new South African police service is totally corrupt and in many areas law and order has broken down completely. The national economy is collapsing, with companies relocating overseas and power-cuts now the norm in the larger urban areas. Administration and infrastructure have declined to other Black African levels, with unrepaired pot-holed roads meaning that driving is a highly dangerous business even without the constant threat of being hi-jacked! To continue contemplating holding the next World Cup finals in such a disintegrating society is nothing short of madness.

Alas, however, there seems little chance of FIFA averting a cataclysmic disaster by re-locating the venue of the 2010 finals. FIFA President Sepp Blatter has too much at stake - both reputation-wise and financial - to agree to the moving of the tournament away from South Africa. Other FIFA officials must therefore try to seize the initiative by demanding that the 2010 finals be moved elsewhere, for if they don't then there is bound to be a catastrophe of international proportions, with the very lives of players, officials, media representatives and those visiting supporters foolhardy enough to make the trip being in grave danger.

The 2006 Finals produced one little-reported encouraging development however. At matches involving Iran there were massive protests by those opposed to the current evil Ahmadinejad-regime in Iran. These demonstrators were proudly waving masses of the former Iranian flag from the days of the Shah. They didn't just want to be rid of Ahmadinejad therefore - they wanted to be rid of the entire Islamic ogre and for Iran to return to the Western fold. There have been those who have criticised us for our attachment to the real South African flag, but these Iranian patriots have demonstrated that it is not only us who wish to return to an earlier, better and more civilised form of government. We wish them well.



The Springbok Club/ELC staged a most pleasant and interesting meeting in June which was addressed by Mr James Lewis, a good friend of the organisation and an acclaimed and award-winning travel-writer. Mr Lewis gave a most informative account of his 25-year professional experiences of world travel, especially in relation to South Africa and Poland, and explained how Communist attempts to eradicate nation-states and national identity were being attempted far more frighteningly by the EU bureaucracy than was ever the case in Soviet-dominated Eastern Europe.



The Springbok Club/ELC will be staging the first of what are planned to be annual Rhodes & Founders Day celebrations later this month, the details of which are as follows :-

Date : Saturday 29th July 2006

Times : Assemble from 14.30 hrs onwards, main activities to start approx. 15.30 hrs.

Venue : THE CLARENCE (the upstairs function room), 4 Dover Street, Mayfair, London W1 (just off Piccadilly opposite the Ritz Hotel - nearest tube station: Green Park).

Guest of Honour : Group Captain PETER PETTER-BOWYER

Peter Petter-Bowyer was born in Rhodesia, and now lives in Norfolk. He is Chairman and Secretary of the Rhodesian Air Force Association in the UK, and generally manages the organisation. "PB", as he is best known, commenced his flying career with the Royal Rhodesian Air Force in 1957. He served as an operational pilot on a variety of piston-engined aircraft, jets, fighter-bombers and helicopters. Operationally involved throughout 13 years of Rhodesia's counter-insurgency war, "PB" was instrumental in developing a number of successful anti-terrorist techniques, including visual reconnaissance that accounted for many of the enemy's numbers. He was also the leading light in saving his country huge amounts in precious foreign currency by developing a range of Rhodesian-manufactured air weapons systems that were much better suited to both bush-warfare and the available strike aircraft than most imported weapons. As Director of Operations at Combined Operations Headquarters with the rank of Group Captain, "PB" was appointed Rhodesia's Cease-fire Commissioner to work directly with the command elements of the British-led Commonwealth Monitoring Force. Following the 1980 victory of ZANU-PF at the polls and the installation of Mugabe as Prime Minister of Zimbabwe, "PB" took immediate early retirement.

A sumptuous array of buffet snacks will be provided at this event, and the cost will be £8.00 per head for Full Members of the Springbok Club/ELC, £10.00 per head for Associate Members, and £12.00 per head for non-members. Although there is no necessity for pre-booking, it would help to gauge numbers if all those intending to attend could inform us in advance by 'phoning 07711-188430.



During the afternoon of Saturday 19th August (at 14.00 hrs) the SC/ELC will be partaking in a "Sherlock Holmes" walking tour organised by "London Horror Tours". After this event an informal reception will be held in a near-by central London pub at which a visiting Australian patriot and long-standing supporter of the movement, Mr Richard "Jock" Spooner, will be the special guest. Fuller details will be given in next month's SCN.

In September the SC/ELC is planning a special meeting at which it is hoped to welcome a leading internationally-renowned economist as guest speaker. Again fuller details will be given in future editions of the SCN.



Last month the London Branch of the SC/ELC held the first of what are hoped to be regular informal get-togethers in central London. Unfortunately problems were evidently encountered in obtaining admission by a number of would-be attendees as a result of the venue being a private members' club and not all staff-members being aware of the event. Hopefully this problem has now been sorted out for the future, but the branch would like to apologise to anybody who may have experienced difficulties along these lines last month. For more information about future branch gatherings please e-mail

Alas a recent attempted gathering by the Chilterns Branch of the SC/ELC turned out to be a sad disaster, with practically nobody turning up. The reason for this was undoubtedly because the erstwhile organiser of this branch, Mr David Williams, has been suffering from increasing bad health, and as a result was not able to circulate invitations to supporters in the region. Mr Williams has subsequently requested to stand-down as organiser of the branch, so we wonder therefore whether any other supporter in the Chilterns area (Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire) would be prepared to take over this position? If so please e-mail

The Hampshire Branch of the SC/ELC will be re-launched with a social get-together later during the summer in the Petersfield area. Any supporter in the Hampshire area who would like to become actively involved should e-mail:

The Northern Ireland Branch of the SC/ELC will be holding a special meeting on Saturday 30th September in Co.Antrim, at which the guest speaker will be Mr Alan Harvey, the current Organiser/Secretary of the SC/ELC. The theme of Mr Harvey's address will be "The similarities and differences between the Ulster and Southern African struggles".



The London Swinton Circle staged two most important, well-attended and highly successful meetings during the last month.

At the first the guest speaker was Mrs Jillian Becker, the well-known author, journalist and expert on counter-terrorism, who spoke on the subject of "Two ways of waging Jihad". Mrs Becker gave a dramatic and masterful overview of the current threats posed to the West by both "hard" and "soft" Islamic Jihad, and also emphasised why it was therefore so important that the Western powers intervened militarily in the Middle East.

The second event, which was the organisation's annual summer buffet, was addressed by Mr Douglas Carswell MP, the Conservative MP for Harwich. One of the most articulate and forward-thinking members of the latest batch of Conservative MPs, Mr Carswell made no bones about the fact that he favoured complete withdrawal from the EU, and also argued strongly in favour of more direct local democracy throughout the UK.

Alas there were problems caused at both meetings by a couple of unsavoury individuals (who we believe not to be members of the LSC) who asked highly offensive questions in opposition to the War Against Terrorism (which furthermore were most insulting to the expert guest speakers), and who at best seemed to advocate appeasement of Islamic expansionism, and at worse downright support for it! These sinister characters would appear therefore to be diametrically opposed to the patriotic ideals upon which the LSC is based, so we therefore call for them to be barred from attending future LSC activities.



A few weeks ago we re-circulated a petition which we had received from a supporter which claimed that a number of SPCA branches in South Africa were facing closure, and that the South African National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund were refusing to allocate the charity any funds. This resulted in a quite dramatic reaction, as several other supporters contacted us (as well as a representative from the SANLDTF itself!) stating that the petition was a "hoax" which had evidently been doing the rounds for several years. We therefore decided to investigate the matter further, yet in spite of e-mailing the apparent instigator of the petition, Chanel Rowan, twice we alas received no response from her whatsoever. We can therefore only come to the conclusion that this petition was indeed a hoax, initiated by forces unknown for reasons that can only be speculated upon. Certainly the petition bore all the characteristics of authenticity, and its contents totally tied-in with the known collapse of infrastructure in the "new" South Africa. Any further information regarding the origins of this petition would therefore be most gratefully received, but in the meantime we would advise everyone to cease re-circulation.

Be this as it may, we also received the following most disturbing message from Louise Joubert of the SANWILD organisation :-

"Maybe you would also consider asking your readers not just to support the SPCA financially but also ask them to write to them re the actions of their wildlife unit (NSPCA) who monitored the removal of 6 young elephants from their breeding herds for elephant backed safari training in Limpopo Province [Far Northern Transvaal}. This is not okay and in my opinion; they (the NSPCA) should have condemned it."

Regardless of the authenticity of the petition, it would therefore seem that all is not well with the South African SPCA.

We would like to add our congratulations to Jill Lambert (probably better known as Jill Baker from her RTV days) who has recently been awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for services to Zimbabwe/Rhodesian immigrants to Australia. Jill of course visited the UK in 2001 in order to promote her book "Beloved African" when she spoke at a Springbok Club meeting. She impressed us greatly as a sincere and genuine woman dedicated to an ending of the suffering of the Zimbabwe/Rhodesian people. Rarely can an award have been more richly deserved.

Claudia Ehrhardt from Mannheim in Germany writes as follows:-

"Today I write to you because I have a request hoping you can help me. A comrade of mine, 24 years, wants to go to South Africa for some time doing a safety job, for example guarding of farms. He is highly motivated and I think in today's situation there must be a lot of farmers who need someone doing this job. Some years ago I was in South Africa making the military South African parachute wings, but unfortunately I have no contacts in South Africa, Maybe you know a possibility, what we can do. I would be very glad to hear from you."

"WAY OUT OF LINE" by Trisha Jackson is a novel which tells the story of the profound impact that an innocent youthful love affair has on the lives of two young lovers. The plot moves from a cult and a maximum security prison in the US to the savannah grasslands of Mozambique and Zimbabwe - this makes for adventure, suspense and melodrama. Packed with conflict and sexual tension, anyone who loves romance, passion and excitement should enjoy reading this story.

Trisha Jackson was born and grew up in Rhodesia. She immigrated to the USA with her husband and three children in 1990. She and her husband live in a unique, rural community in the Tonto National Forest in the eastern mountains of Arizona.

Copies of WAY OUT OF LINE can be ordered from


"THE GREAT SOUTH AFRICAN LAND SCANDAL" by Dr. Philip du Toit is a vital piece of work. South Africa can do without many things, but it cannot survive without its farmers.

"OF RICE AND MEN", by Jimmy Walker

111 pages. Illustrated. With excellent cartoons by Fusilier Norman Lambert, produced whilst in captivity. Soft-back £5.00 (cover price £10.00)

An irreverent, left of centre, look at life as a POW by Jimmy Walker, who was captured by the Japanese following the fall of Singapore in 1942. Jimmy takes us through incarceration at the notorious Changi jail, forced labour on the railroad, and deportation to Japan, where the Japanese exploited the mining skills of the boys from Northumberland. Norman Lambert’s sketches are both amusing and frightening at the same time. Through the bitterness and resentment, and physical trauma of captivity shines the humour and the indomitable spirit of the British soldier. An enjoyable and educational read, with a surprise ending.

Prices include p&p. Payment can be made by credit or debit card. To order on line, log on to and enter as payment destination.

When I lived in Rhodesia the South African Rand was worth 0.86 Rhodesian Dollars and the British Pound was worth 1.87 South African Rands - and this was under the "illegal rebel regime" which created illegal employment for thousands of "oppressed blacks"!

For centuries Britain won hundreds of battles against the various European nations, but lost the war and invited them in to run this once
brave land. Then to top it all the British handed back the colonies to their "rightful" owners, and promptly invited them to join us here on our little piece of home.

Enoch I hope you are not spinning in your grave, echoes of I told you so.

Have you ever wondered how the audience in TV programmes are arranged particularly if it concerns the questioning of immigrants into Australia?

Audiences are usually well stacked giving the appearance that the ratio of ethnics to Australians in this country is in reverse to actual fact, and are given the most say.

I have been to a number of these interviews and was always outnumbered by obviously well-picked and vocal ethnics who made such statements as "this is a multi-cultural society". The fact of course is this: We were never asked via a referendum if we wanted to change the ethnic structure of our society.

This taxpayer funded multi-culturalism has now created a window of opportunity for terrorists and other creeps who are increasingly committing crimes on a racial basis, particularly rape.

Many of our suburbs are now cesspools of alien crime. Young girls have been horrifically raped for simply being Australian. Terrorist supporters have danced in the streets in support of the exploits of overseas terrorists.

How simple it now is for foreign radicals calmly and openly to buy a ticket at one of our airports, casually board a local plane, overpower the crew, and then perpetrate a similar atrocity such as occurred in the USA?

Among the boat people there were many lone women and their children. Their menfolk had obviously stayed behind to fight for terrorist causes. These woman and children should not have been allowed into Australia as this now allows them to sponsor their terrorist husbands.

Our ancestors, who were pioneers and not grasping migrants, sweated and toiled to build this great country. They had no social services of any kind and lived under great difficulties. To have racial strangers now riding on our backs claiming credit due to others while gaining all the benefits of the toil and strife of our pioneers is an absolute insult.

This was not a nation built by immigrants - it was built by hard-working pioneers under extreme conditions.

Having seen many good young men die during World War II - some in intense agony - in their effort to keep the alien from our shores, I suppose it could be said that I am biased when I say I detest those extremists who have brought this country to a state where terrorists now lurk in our midst.

The anti-terrorist war has started, courtesy of multi-culturalism. The call to Muslims has been made, and they are now mobilising in certain of Sydney's western suburbs?

Yours etc.,

Nick Maine, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.




I have just read the latest Mail & Guardian South African newspaper. There is an article about two "Boeremag" members having escaped from a Pretoria Court. Spread the word, as it is up to every White South African to protect these brave men, because our future depends on them.

The once Proud Dutch Nation, a Christian Protestant Land and Empire, which the Spaniards failed to enslave through their brutal armies, has well and truly fallen under the stranglehold of the Crescent, as if a Muslim fleet has sailed into Rotterdam and declared an Islamic State of Netherstan.

It is disgusting beyond all acceptance that a Somali-born Dutch MP, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, should often have to sleep on Army Bases because of Islamic fundamentalist thugs. It seriously makes my blood boil. This mad-house situation is just where the politics of grumble, acquiescence, surrender and cowardice have lead us to.

Just as our incompetent corrupt government desperately needs to be swept from Office, so should that in the Netherlands. It is clear as crystal that what they need is a decent right-wing Christian Protestant government which will deport all these violent Islamic fundamentalists and restore the Dutch Empire in the Dutch East Indies.

Common sense and reason must sweep away this madness and insanity.

Yours etc.,

Robert Shipley, Gillingham, Kent, U.K.



There were tears of joy rather than tears of sorrow when we learnt of the recent death of the leftist Welsh ham-actor and self-styled "documentary maker" Kenneth Griffith.

Griffith wasn't just an ordinary left-wing scumbag - he seemed to have a particular visceral hatred for his own British kith and kin. The main targets for his irrational hatred were the Loyalists of Northern Ireland and the White British of South Africa - and he openly supported the anti-British and anti-White terrorist vermin operating in both of these strategic areas of the globe. Probably his most sickening act, however, was to produce a "documentary" glorifying "Sir" Roger Casement. Casement of course was one of the most obnoxious individuals ever to inhabit this planet, being an open homosexual, paedophile, traitor and terrorist gun-runner prior to his just execution. He conducted a self-righteous vendetta campaign against the civilising Belgian administration of the Congo - only for it to be revealed later that his main interest was simply to get his perverted hands on little Congolese negro boys. He subsequently sided with Kaiser Bill's Germany against his own country during WWI, and was directly involved in the smuggling of German weapons to the infant IRA in Dublin. Without doubt Casement was therefore a most despicable rat imaginable - yet here was a piece of filth who Griffith saw fit to "glorify" in one of his self-hating "documentaries".

During his acting career Griffith more often than not played psychopaths, weidos and other mentally deficients; it would appear therefore that he was very accurately type-cast. All three of his marriages evidently failed, thus again confirming that the man was one of nature's inadequates. The world is undoubtedly a far better place following his demise.
