March 2011 Edition.


March 2011 edition

International headlines over the past couple of months have been dominated by the popular uprisings in certain Arab countries against despotic regimes - though in the case of Libya even the term "despotic" probably seems too polite to describe Gaddafi and his henchmen!

Perhaps the most encouraging factor about these uprisings is that they have in the main been orchestrated the younger, more secular, more media-savvy and pro-Western sections of the population, and have not involved Islamic fundamentalist elements such as the Muslim Brotherhood. It is also a fact that these uprisings have undoubtedly been encouraged, if not actually influenced, by Western intervention to remove similar tyrannical regimes in the Islamic world, specifically in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Libyan freedom-fighters may proclaim that they can liberate themselves without any need for Western military intervention, but alas more recent developments in that unfortunate land have demonstrated that forces loyal to the madman Gaddafi cannot be defeated by internal opposition alone, and that some form of Western muscular aid is necessary.

But perhaps there is another more basic factor regarding these uprisings which has been overlooked. The discontent with the ruling regimes hasn't simply occurred overnight - there has clearly been massive opposition to the rule of the tyrants for many decades, indeed right from the moments when they usurped power. In the regard the post-WWII Western mindset is probably to blame. Had the French not abdicated power in Tunisia then the Tunisian people would not have suffered under Ben Ali. Had Britain not capitulated to UN pressure after the Suez intervention then the Egyptian people would not have been under the yoke of Mubarak (it should never be forgotten that Mubarak is the direct second-heir of the despot Nasser). Had the Italians not abandoned Libya then the Libyan people would have been infinitely less suppressed.

Even after their abdication of colonial authority the Western powers still alas acted in a most reprehensible - maybe even cowardly - manner. It didn't take long for the deranged megalomaniac Gaddafi to reveal his true colours after he deposed King Idris some 41 years ago, yet the Western powers did nothing - nothing - (except for a few ineffective bombing raids during the mid-1980s) to remove this tyrant. As a result Gaddafi's regime was able to enact the bombing of PanAm 103 over Lockerbie, murder WPC Yvonne Fletcher in London, and to supply arms to their brother-terrorists of SF/IRA. Had the West possessed leadership with courage and determination 41 years ago to intervene once the true nature of Gaddafi's evil regime became apparent then not only would the Libyan people have been spared 41 years of unnecessary suffering, but WPC Fletcher, all the innocents killed at Lockerbie and the countless innocent citizens of Northern Ireland who were slaughter by SF/IRA scum using weapons supplied by Gaddafi would all probably still be alive today.

But how does all this relate to those of us from Southern Africa? For two main reasons. Firstly Gaddafi enjoyed very close personal friendship with the unreconstructed ANC terrorist leader "Nelson" Mandela (indeed a picture of Gaddafi and his brother-terrorist Mandela hugging one another appeared in S.A.Patriot-in-Exile No.35). How much longer, we therefore wonder, before the Blacks of South Africa rise up against the tyrants of the ANC regime in a similar manner to which the Arabs of Tunisia, Egypt and Libya have risen up against their own despots? - and likewise in "Zimbabwe" and "Namibia" against the tyrannical ZANU/PF and SWAPO regimes also?

Secondly it has been extremely encouraging to observe that the Libyan freedom-fighters have not only totally rejected the plain green flag of the Gaddafi regime, but furthermore, instead of adopting some form of new flag, have eagerly reinstated the former flag of King Idris's Libya! There have been many who have cynically dismissed our own adherence to the only true and real South African flag, saying that "it will never be reinstated" - yet here now is the third example since the NP capitulation to the ANC terrorists where a country has reverted to their former authentic flags after a period of suppressive dictatorial rule - firstly in Russia (and indeed, with minor alterations, in other former Iron Curtain countries also), then in Afghanistan, and now in Libya. As far as world history is concerned, therefore, it's probably best never to say "never"!



The Springbok Club held a happy and constructive social get-together in south London last month, at which ExCo member Susan Gordon gave a most informative illustrated report-back on her recent trip back to Kenya where she was born. Unfortunately the new location in south London didn't prove very convenient for many supporters, and the turnout was therefore somewhat lower than hoped and anticipated. This was a pity, as those her weren't able to attend because of the location missed a most pleasant and convivial evening's activity.



As agreed at the Springbok Club's 2011 AGM in January, the organisation will be staging a special informal "Sports Day" in March, the details of which are as follows :-

Date  :   Saturday 19th March

Time  :   Turn up at any time from mid-day onwards

Venue :   The Bok Bar, 56 Blandford Street, London W1U 7JA (nearest underground station: Baker Street. Cross the Marylebone Road [A501] then head down Baker Street, where Blandford Street is the fourth on the left.)

Screenings of both the Cricket World Cup matches between South Africa and Bangladesh (East Bengal) and Australia and Pakistan (the North-West Frontier Districts), as well as all three Rugby 6-nation matches will be shown at this venue during the day. The location is also very adjacent to Madam Tussaud’s Waxworks, the Wallace Collection with its fine armoury, a comprehensive bookshop with a good history section at 91 Marylebone High Street, and Regents Park - so all are therefore invited to what promises to be a most enjoyable and uplifting informal day out.



In April 2011 the Springbok Club will be holding a full day's activities to celebrate Van Riebeeck's Day, which it is anticipated will include a braai and special musical entertainment.

In May the Springbok Club will be staging a trip to Hatfield House in Hertfordshire in order to pay respects at the RLI "Troopie" Statue which is now situated there, as well as touring Hatfield House itself.



Both the Kent and London Branches of the Springbok Club will be staging informal pub gatherings during Spring 2011, the Kent Branch event to be held at Canterbury. Full details regarding both these activities will be appearing in future editions of the SCN.

It is also anticipated that a get-together to re-establish the Hampshire Branch of the Springbok Club will be staged shortly.

The Swinton Circle held a most successful and enthralling meeting earlier this month which was addressed by Mr. Christopher Gillibrand MA, MBA. Mr. Gillibrand, who is a highly respected political commentator and the director of a Brussels-based pro-free market think-tank, gave a highly informative talk entitled "EU - the Final Act?" in which he demonstrated why Britain's entanglement with the EU was the main reason for the UK's current political, social and economic catastrophe. He finished his talk on a far more optimistic note however, asking the question "what will happen now, and what can we do about it?", which was a call to action to defend traditional British liberties, advocating that Britain should once more look towards the outside world (particularly the United States) rather than to the European continent for its closest relationships.

A further most encouraging development from this meeting was that a number of excellent new contacts were made, which could lead to several similar interesting guest speakers being invited to address the Swinton Circle in the near future - in addition to the MP speakers who are already scheduled for later during the year.



We have recently been forwarded the following significant media statement by the Transvaal Agricultural Union of South Africa :-

"TAU SA objects in the strongest terms imaginable to the newly-appointed Deputy Minister of Police Maggie Sotyu's statement that Whites are sentenced too light by the courts and that they should be punished heavier.

"She stepped close to the same ill-considered and irresponsible trap of some of her colleagues in the past, by making wild statements without a single fact to submit to her unsubstantiated assertion, even just to try to substantiate it.

"In fact, TAU SA is of the opinion that Whites are even more heavily punished than others. This was clear from the sentence of the Skierlik-shooter and from the fact that a rugby player gets R100,000 bail in connection with the death of a cop. Even Mr. Clive Derby-Lewis's case shows that Whites are more heavily punished and denied their rights, in contrast to the treatment of Mr. Zuma's friend, Shabir Shaik.

"'The deputy minister again creates an environment where Whites are given an unfair sense of guilt and where whites will become victims of hateful racist elements. This can lead to violence against whites, which can include farm attacks,' said Mr. Ben Marais, President of TAU SA.

"TAU SA calls on Mr. Zuma immediately to recall his newly appointed deputy minister as she has not yet entrenched in her new position, because she is blowing up racial hatred, and shows a callous disregard for the work of the judiciary, said Marais."



Kleinfontein is a community of approximately 1000 members of the Afrikaner people. We have established a settlement on property owned, controlled and managed by its members with a view to promote their identity in a safe and economically viable environment. This settlement was established in accordance with certain clauses in the South African constitution which makes provision for a form of territorial self-determination for people who share the same religious, linguistic and cultural values. The development is structured within a non-profit co-operative, is managed by mainly unpaid volunteers, is financed by its own members and consequently receives no financial assistance from the government. In view of the struggle of our people to retain our right to live in a dignified way, and government actions to impoverish our people legally by barring White persons from meaningful access to economic participation, any form of support, especially financial, will be appreciated. More than seventy White squatter camps (mainly Afrikaners) in our vicinity (Pretoria) are waging a battle to survive. The funds will be used for community upliftment programmes such as the upgrading of facilities at our home for the aged who need medical support, and our Christian primary school.

One of our supporters, Allan Banfield, has recently sent the following most telling letter to Peter Hain, the leading anti-South African demonstrator of the 1970s and former Labour minister. We do not know whether any reply was ever received from Hain :-

"Dear Mr. Hain,

"South Africa - rainbow nation - dream or nightmare?

"From your website I quote: 'Mandela ..... brought his struggle against overwhelming prejudice and fear to the eyes of the world ..... his retirement campaigns for a solution to AIDS, poverty, and human rights, and above all his humanity and compassion ......'

"The CensorBugBear Blogspot gives many examples of the reverse racism taking place in South Africa right now. Peculiarly the western media and British politicians - who were once very vocal about White on Black racism during the formal apartheid/separate development era of 1948 to 1990 - are making no public statements about this state of affairs.

"Why do you think this is so? Can we rely on you as man of integrity and fair play to remedy the situation? Is it not time that the British media and public who campaigned so tirelessly for fair human rights be informed about what has actually come to pass in South Africa today?

"This information has been taken from the website:

"The site is run by retired Dutch journalist Adriana Stuijt who has made it her mission to chronicle the daily violence (farm murders and home invasions) and reverse racism - against Whites in general and the Afrikaners in particular - prevalent in South Africa today, post 1994 'freedom', which the western media and politicians are being remarkably coy about."

Yours faithfully,

Allan Banfield

The narrative gives the reader an overview of the history of the White man in southern Africa with detailed emphasis on the Rhodesian story through the life and times of PK van der Byl, one of the major players in a political drama that ended in the accession to power of Robert Mugabe under the auspices of the British government. By his very nature PK was controversial and confrontational. This account is likely to give offence to some because it portrays him as bluntly as he was in real life. Much can be contested about PK van der Byl but few will dispute he was an extremely colourful character with a devilish sense of humour. This memoir covers his life with a full flourish while doing nothing to detract from the seriousness of the international political and military conflict in which he was engaged. The reader will glean new information on a highly controversial subject and emerge with a more sympathetic understanding of what PK van der Byl and his colleagues did and strove for. The human tragedy that has followed the removal from power of Ian Smith and his Rhodesian Front party will almost certainly force the reader to deal with some uncomfortable conclusions, of value to anyone sincere about grappling with the volatile and deeply troubling challenges that confront all Africans today.

No.148 :  Mr. DAVID OVERTON of Cape Town.

David Overton was one of the four original founders of the Save Rhodesia Campaign in Cape Town during the mid 1970s. Alas, following the internal friction which affected the organisation shortly after its formation, when Brendan Willmer staged a coup to eject his fellow-founders Stanley Deane and Bernie Foyle, David Overton initially sided with the wretched Willmer - though this was a decision which he subsequently lived to regret. He was a highly talented and extremely likeable political operative, and acted as a supremely effective press officer for the SRC during the early period of its existence. Once he saw through the phoniness of Willmer, however, he left the organisation, and is believed to have moved to Europe in order to embark upon a writing career. Willmer, and alas Stanley Deane and Bernie Foyle also, are all now dead, but we have no idea of what became of David Overton. Any further information about him would therefore be most appreciated.



To many the following YouTube video, showing as it does a protest against the genocide of Whites in general in South Africa and the Afrikaners in particular which recently took place in Israel, may come as a surprise. For those of us who were politically active in South Africa during the 1980s, and thereby knew from first-hand experience about the close military, economic and security co-operation which existed between the State of Israel and South Africa at the time, it simply confirms this ongoing friendship - indeed the only surprising thing is that following the tame manner in which the NP South African government surrendered to the ANC terrorists, and thereby left Israel more exposed to the spectre of international terrorism, that there are still those in Israel prepared to stand up in support of their former close allies.

The nail that sticks up gets hammered down, the tall trees catch the wind. The price we pay for honesty is the attacks of the dishonest, who vastly outnumber us. No doubt there are a few Blacks involved with that freebie newspaper ["The South African"] - go figure. Also, a lot of South Africans still think of "home" as it was - they are blissfully unaware of what it is like to today - like the Rhodesian "When-we's." 

Yours etc.,

Robin J. Elliott, Vancouver, Canada




You may recall that after President de Klerk repealed all the apartheid legislation South Africa was plunged into an orgy of violence. Some 12,000 people (mainly Blacks) lost their lives between 1990 ad 1994. The security forces killed about 700 trying to maintain peace in the townships. Blacks were responsible for killing about 11,000 of their own.

Question: What was it all about? Answer: To terrorise the proletariat into voting for the ANC in the forthcoming elections - which the West duly declared free and fair.

We now also know that some 3,700 White farmers in South Africa have been randomly and brutally slaughtered in the 16 years since "freedom" in 1994.

Question: Again we ask the question - Why? Answer: Look at Zimbabwe. Can you see the similarities? If anyone has any doubts about what is going on in South Africa today, and why it is happening, we only need to look at what is taking place north of the Limpopo in Zimbabwe.

We should also remember that the British Labour Government knighted Robert Mugabe whilst all this violence was being perpetrated. Similarly the British politicians and civil servants at the forefront of ending Rhodesian UDI were also the recipients of national honours.

Has the time not come for you to start informing your readers of the truth behind all the nefarious activities of the ANC? Has the time not come for the civilised world actually to make a stand and restore capable government to these previous Western allies before they fall into the opposition camp forever?

The eloquent illustrated address by Roy Bennett to the UK Parliament clearly laid out the game plan of ZANU-PF and the ANC. Is anybody going to do something or are we just going to tut-tut and continue with our 'politically correct' lives for fear of being labelled "racist"?

Yours etc.,

Allan Banfield, Hertfordshire, U.K.




When word got out that Canada granted Brandon Huntley asylum, the ANC regime put great pressure on Ottawa to have it reversed, since it 'embarrassed' the illicit Marxist regime in South Africa. Not many people know that more than 800 White South Africans have been granted political asylum in the past ten years, numerous of those being in the UK. Why the Huntley case drew so much attention is not known.

Yours etc.,

Thankfully we have received no further reports of the circulation of the vile and evil fabricated obscene pictures claimed to be of the editor of the SCN, no doubt because this disgusting smear has been reported to the Police - and the person responsible for this depraved concoction knows this to be the case!

We have however recently been informed of a very similar degenerate smear campaign which has been waged against a well-known EuroSceptic maverick (we won't name the EuroSceptic in question or the web-site on which this smear appears in other to spare him embarrassment). This attack also involved a fabricated picture of an individual in a perverted pose - though in this case with the head of the victim superimposed upon a semi-naked male body (probably by means of Photoshop software, which we were informed by an expert had obviously been used on some of the earlier doctored pictures of the editor). Although this recent fake picture claiming to be of the EuroSceptic maverick is clothed in somewhat different fetish attire to the previous concocted photographs, the body-build of the figure pictured indicates that the same male model was used in both cases.

It of course brings us no pleasure to learn that there is now another innocent victim of the evil fabricator of these pornographic pictures, but it does even so confirm that the culprit is a totally sick individual, who is in dire need of psychiatric treatment. 


Finally, if you would prefer to be deleted from our SCN circulation list then simply e-mail us with the word "unsubscribe". Alternatively, if you liked this SCN and think more of your friends would like to receive copies then please let us know their e-mail addresses!

See you again next month!
