January 2007 Edition.


January 2007 edition

The execution of the monster Saddam Hussein at the end of 2006 undoubtedly made the world a far better place. Regardless of whether or not one supports the death penalty in principle (though most members of our movement certainly seem to believe that the death penalty is both necessary and morally justifiable) few can mourn the demise of the evil mass-murderer Saddam Hussein, who through his quest to develop Weapons of Mass Destruction threatened us all.

Shortly after hearing the pleasing news of his execution one of our supporters texted to say that for 2007 he hoped "Mandela [would be] hanged a la Saddam". Although we can of course sympathise with these sentiments, the fact remains that the convicted terrorist Mandela is now a senile wreck who has long since done his worst. What we would say, however, is that had he been sentenced to death after being found guilty of planning terrorism in 1964, rather than merely being sentenced to life imprisonment (the death penalty was then still on the South African statute book), then a lot of innocent people (of all races) would not have died during his despotic period of power from 1994 to 1999.

Mandela may happily have drifted from power, but there are still plenty of equally evil tyrants in power throughout the so-called third world. Be think immediately of Ahmadinejad of Iran and Chavez of Venezuela of course, but our main concern still remains Africa, and Southern Africa in particular - and here there is surely no more evil unreconstructed terrorist killer still in power than Mugabe of Zimbabwe.

It is therefore our main hope for 2007 that not only will Mugabe be swept from power, but also that he receives the same fate as Saddam Hussein. The world will then be an even better place to live in.



The Springbok Club's annual Day of the Vow commemorations in December proved to be a most successful event, although the numbers in attendance were perhaps a little lower than had been hoped and expected. Proceeding commenced with appropriate opening devotions conducted by the Rev. David Braid, and were followed by some excellent musical entertainment from Mr. Robin Willow. As alas the planned guest speaker was still out of the country at the time, Mr. Peter King (a member of the Executive Committee of the Springbok Club/ELC, and a leading light in the rejuvenated London Branch of the organisation) stepped into the breach at short notice and gave a most well-researched and captivating talk on the history of the Afrikaner people, and the Battle of Blood River in particular. We are grateful to all three of these gentlemen for their great help and support in making this event such an encouraging success - and also to the management of the venue where this function was held who not only provided such a succulent array of buffet snacks, but who also went out of their way to assist us in other respects.



The 2007 AGM of the Springbok Club/Empire Loyalist Club will take place on Tuesday 23rd January. Only fully paid-up members of the SC/ELC will be allowed to attend the business side of this meeting (which will commence sharply at 19.00 hrs), and only Life, Honorary and Full Members will be entitled to vote or to stand for office. All fully paid-up members of the organisation should have been officially notified of the precise details by now, but if any member still hasn't received such notification please e-mail Following the business side of the AGM the meeting will be addressed by Mr. Michael McGough, the Chairman of the City of London Branch of the Freedom Association and a member of the National Council of that organisation, who will give a brief talk about the Freedom Association's history, aims and objectives. Any supporter who wishes to attend this phase of the meeting (which will commence at approx. 20.00 hrs) should again e-mail in order to obtain further details.

In February 2007 the Springbok Club/ELC anticipates welcoming a leading national security lawyer as guest speaker, and in March 2007 the SC/ELC will be joining forces with the London Swinton Circle to stage the first of three joint meetings planned for this year. The following two joint meetings will be held in April, to mark the 25th anniversary of victory in the Falklands War, and in May to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the First Act of Union. The SC/ELC will be holding its traditional Empire Day celebrations later on during May (at which it is anticipated that a leading colonial figure from Hong Kong will be guest of honour), and it is still expected that the famous South African journalist who was originally expected to address last December's Day of the Vow events will now address the organisation later during 2007.



Details of the 2007 AGM of the Northern Ireland Branch of the Springbok Club/Empire Loyalist Club are as follows :-

Date : Saturday 31st March 2007

Time : 10.30 hrs for 11.00 hrs

Venue : Finvoy Orange Hall, Finvoy Road, Ballymoney, Co.Antrim (the Finvoy Road runs between Ballymoney and Rasharkin, the Orange Hall is located almost at the half way point in the road, beside a small petrol garage and lay-by).

The Northern Ireland Branch of the SC/ELC of course experienced some minor difficulties last year, all of which now happily appear to have been successfully overcome. Unfortunately, however, the current Chairman and stalwart of the branch, Pastor Nigel Owens, will be taking up a three-year overseas teaching appointment in May, so therefore needs to hand over the Chairmanship of the branch to reliable hands at this AGM. In view of these two factors we would like to encourage all members and supporters in Northern Ireland to make every effort to attend this important meeting, and that anyone who is able and willing to stand for office will do their best to support Nigel in this respect. For more details please e-mail

The Kent Branch of the SC/ELC will be holding an informal social gathering during February, probably in the Medway Towns area. Fuller details will be given in next month's SCN.

It is anticipated that the next activity to be staged by the London Branch of the SC/ELC will be a meeting addressed by a well-known personality in March.

We are hopeful that the dormant Chilterns, Hampshire and Lancashire branches of the SC/ELC will all be revitalised with new branch structures very shortly, and that new branches in Sussex/Surrey and Essex will also be established soon. If you live in any of these areas and would like to become involved in branch activities please e-mail:



Details of the LSC meeting to be addressed by Mr. David Davies MP, the Conservative MP for Monmouth, have still to be finalised, but is anticipated to take place in late January or early February. More precise details will be notified in due course.

We are very sad to have to report that Mr. Sean Pearson has recently decided to resign as Chairman of the LSC, though happily he aims to continue an active involvement in other ways. Although even his best friends would probably tell Sean that he did not prove to be the strongest of Chairmen, he even so proved a most sincere and reliable holder of the office. We wish him well for the future, and trust that he will continue to play an active role in the broader movement in the days ahead.



As they have been doing for several years, the New Britain party will again be holding special celebrations to mark Australia and New Zealand Days later this month. This event will take place on Saturday 27th January, assembling at the statue of Admiral Arthur Philip (the founder of Sydney) in Watling Street at the rear of St.Paul's Cathedral at 14.00 hrs (though many people taking part in these celebrations will be lunching in the Crypt of St.Paul's Cathedral beforehand). Following the laying of a wreath at the statue of Admiral Philip (who was born in the City of London) a short march will take place to St.Olave's Hall in Mark Lane, where a special reception will take place, at which the guest of honour will be Sir Michael Savoury, the Lord Mayor of London in 2005. At this reception special messages of greetings and support to be sent to the Prime Ministers of both Australia and New Zealand will be on display for signing by all those in attendance. For more details please contact New Britain officials either by e-mailing or 'phoning 0207-2472524.



We have recently been sent the text of some most encouraging comments recently made by Australian Prime Minister John Howard :-

Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: "IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the 'politically correct' crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Australia. However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand. This idea of Australia being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle. This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language! Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right-wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture. We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us. If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like 'A Fair Go', then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. By all means, keep your culture, but do not force it on others. This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'. If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted."

A group of local and international journalists have witnessed the killing of seal pups at Cape Cross on Namibia's northern coast, the Namibian Press Agency has reported. Invited by the director of resource management in the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources, Burger Oelofsen, the group arrived at the seal colony one morning to watch the culling of 296 pups by the concession holders, Seal Products. Eighteen of Seal Products's employees herded the seals into groups of 20 to 40 along a narrow pathway, where the pups were clubbed and the adults allowed to return to the ocean. After being clubbed, the pups were stabbed with long knives through the heart to ensure that they were completely dead, Nampa said.

...... but in 2006 this is surely no longer justified. As Namibia's 2006 baby seal slaughter draws to an end on November 15th the question remains, will this just begin again the following year? To visiting journalists 'the controlled show' might have seemed somehow acceptable - that 296 baby pups were separated from their mothers and 'orderly clubbed' to death in one morning. But then this was just one show-day, the reality is something entirely different. Three sealing concession holders send in over 40 club-welding sealers every morning into two mainland seal colonies, which consists of 75% of the population. Each day they will smash their way through 600 to 1000 baby seals, causing the entire seal colony to flee to the safety of the sea, and return the next day, and the next, until their 85,000 baby seal pup quota is reached or, as has been happening since 1990, there is not a single baby seal pup left to club to death. This can take anything between 85 and 150 days. Whilst sealers earn just R15 (USD $2) per slaughtered pup, Seal Alert-SA is forced to pay thousands of Rand in the hope of saving some of these innocent victims of today's sick Southern African society. Whilst the world screams global warming - sealers and baby seals, scream KILL, KILL.

The following empirical article has recently been sent to us by Cliff Bradshaw :-

"Let us not forget to remember those who gave their live in the First and Second World Wars, nor those in the smaller wars of the last sixty years.

"Let us not forget to remember those who have died in the Third World War (The Terrorist War), those who lost their lives in the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon and for those who lost their lives in the underground bombings in London.

"I am a Rhodesian, one of many I am sure, who mourns the vast number who died or were physically or psychologically maimed at the hands of terrorism in Rhodesia, when terrorist were called 'freedom fighters'. Just as I mourn for and with the many who have died or lost loved ones at the hands of terrorism in America and London.

"It is terrorism and not 'freedom fighting', it is the need for world power not 'liberation', it is the greed and guilt of governments that call them 'freedom fighters' one day, and terrorists the next that give the terrorists their power.

"On each 11th of November who will stand for those who gave their lives in the early days of the fight against the terrorist beginnings, when terrorists were called 'freedom fighters'.

"Who will stand for the soldiers, the missionaries, the farmers and the Black and White civilians who gave their lives to fight the terrorists in Rhodesia. Those who saw the alliances and ambitions of the likes of Mugabe, Gadaffi, Arafat and Bin Laden and died bravely resisting it, when a weak world condemned them for their insight.

"Who will wear a poppy (maybe a green and white one) for those who gave their lives at the beginning of the Third World War - The War against Terrorism.

"Each 11th of November I will mourn those who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars, and the other smaller wars that have ended in the last sixty years.

"But mostly each 11th of November I will stand proudly and remember those who gave their lives in the Rhodesian Bush War. The pioneers in the War against Terrorism, and the true allies of the western world.

"Each 11th of November REMEMBER WITH PRIDE. God bless Rhodesia and God bless Rhodesians wherever they may be."

"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.

"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.

Rhodesia was once a prosperous and thriving country, and the story of the author's enterprising and entrepreneurial spirit in that land, followed by his desperate escape from the country when, as Zimbabwe, it became ruled by a tyrant, imparts a realistic perspective of the present desperate plight of many exiles from a country that was once a paradise and the breadbasket for so much of Africa.

No.98 : Mr. EUGENE MARAIS of Stevenage

Eugene Marais contacted us a year or so ago and expressed great interest in becoming actively involved in the Springbok Club, specifically in the Chilterns Branch. Alas, in spite of being notified regularly of all events, he was never seen at any activity, and the latest invitation which was sent to his last known Stevenage address was returned as he is evidently no longer resident there. Does anybody know where he can now be contacted?



The "Why South Africa Sucks" blog chronicles the slide of a once magnificent, thriving First World country into that of a crime-ravaged, Stalinist third world hell-hole. It can be accessed at :-





I have observed in horror as the world's biggest terrorist Nelson Mandela has been lauded as the country disintegrates into a bloody violent lawless mess. There is a website set up to warn the world what awaits them if they are foolish enough to visit South Africa for the 2010 World Cup. It truly is too horrific for me to post to you, a website with stories and photos of how the Whites are being murdered in the most horrific way. It highlights the fact that the famous liberal White South Africans who advocated Black majority rule now live in any other country except South Africa. Yes, those White South African liberal-types who wanted Black rule now live in Britain, New Zealand and Australia.

Yours etc.,

Val, Sussex, U.K.




I see in the South African Times (UK) that Janet Suzman is complaining about the high crime rate and AIDS in South Africa, and that Judith Todd is complaining about the state of Zimbabwe under Mugabe. I couldn't keep a straight face!

Whilst still based in South Africa our movement seemed to enjoy good fraternal relations with a group of apparent Australian patriots called "Australian National Action", particularly with one of their leading members who had the unusual name of Jim Saleam. Accepting their bona fides that they shared our own pro-White and pro-Western policies we exchanged publications, and indeed published a number of articles written by ANA members in the pages of S.A.Patriot (though in retrospect perhaps we should have read one particular article a little more carefully before publishing it).

Following our forced relocation to the UK contact with ANA seemed to cease, but in 2001 we were able to re-make contact with Jim Saleam via the Internet. Shortly after this, however, we were warned by the erstwhile Australian Co-ordinator of the Springbok Club to be somewhat wary of Mr. Saleam. It did not take us long to discover the reason for this, for Mr. Saleam himself subsequently admitted that he had served four years imprisonment for a shotgun offence (though to be fair, he denied all involvement in this incident).

More suspicions concerning Mr. Saleam soon followed however. Firstly he made reference to an entire "alphabet soup" of initials of alleged UK political organisations, some of which referred to completely "off the edge" outfits which we wouldn't touch with a bargepole, but others which we had never heard of - and indeed still haven't heard of from any other source to this day! Secondly, and far more disturbingly, he revealed that in spite of still claiming to be "opposed to Moslem immigration to our societies" (and indeed signing off with the phrase "with best wishes to all South Africa expats") he then went on to state that he opposed the West's War against Terrorism in Iraq - using the classic ultra-leftist phraseology of "the criminal invasion of Iraq" to describe it! Subsequent e-mail correspondence revealed that not only did Mr. Saleam hold the totally ambiguous opinions of opposing Islamic expansionism in one part of the globe (Australia) yet apparently supporting it in another (Iraq), but that furthermore he seemed completely incapable of grasping the total logical inconsistency of such hypocrisy! At this stage we thought it best to drop all contact with the confused Mr. Saleam.

A few months ago, however, we received information about a so-called "6th Sydney Forum", which was apparently being organised by Mr. Saleam. Although many of the speeches advertised for this "Forum" were those which we could fully identify with (regarding Australia's immigration problems and the curse of "political correctness"), others showed that Mr. Saleam was still apparently suffering from acute political schizophrenia. Not only was he due to speak himself under the sickening theme of "Imperialism, Zionism and The Criminal War Against Iraq" (no, we're not making this up!), but the main speaker was announced to be Tamman Sulaiman, the Syrian Ambassador to Australia - and don't forget that Syria is a fully paid-up associate member of the Axis of Evil!!!

What is the cause of Mr. Saleam's total ambiguity of apparently supporting Australia's struggle to maintain its Western identity in one breath, yet opposing the Western struggle to counteract Islamic fundamentalism in another area of the globe in the next breath? A clue probably lies in Mr. Saleam's own identity, for, as his unusual surname may suggest, he is - er - actually of Lebanese origin. One part of the poor fellow therefore apparently identifies with his Australian background where he lives, yet another part of him still sides with his Arab ancestry. If ever there was a good concrete example to demonstrate the problems caused by miscegenation and multi-culturalism then surely this is it!
