April 2017 Edition


April 2017 edition

It was surely a piece of the greatest irony that the day after the death of the SF/IRA terrorist leader Martin McGuinness on 21st March 2017 that there was an Islamic terror attack on Westminster Bridge. Rarely has the old maxim “Once you’ve paid the Danegeld you’ll never get rid of the Danes” been better illustrated!

McGuinness was of course the “Commander” of SF/IRA in Londonderry throughout the early years of “the troubles”, and by all accounts was a most vicious and sadistic “hands-on” terrorist – most of his victims of course being members of his own Roman Catholic community who opposed SF/IRA tactics. To be sure he “mellowed” during later life, but he NEVER apologised for all the pain and suffering which he caused, and he NEVER renounced the evil philosophy which underpinned SF/IRA terror – namely hate-filled Irish Nationalism. To term him a “statesman”, as sickly several commentators did following his death just because in later years he was no longer a “hands-on” terrorist, is therefore an obscenity of the highest order, and spits in the faces of all his SF/IRA terror victims.

But McGuinness hasn’t been the only evil terrorist leader from the second-half of the 20th century who has sickeningly been termed a “statesman” by the liberal chattering-classes. The vile South African terrorist leader “Nelson” Mandela was also obscenely termed in this way after he was released from prison following his conviction for the most heinous terrorist offences, and then handed power by the sellout NP government. Like McGuinness, Mandela never apologised for all the pain and suffering which he caused to his innocent victims, nor did he ever renounce the evil philosophy underpinning ANC terror – hate-filled African (or perhaps more accurately Xhosa) nationalism. In Mandela’s case, however, he didn’t “mellow” during his later years, as some of the worst atrocities committed against the White farming community in South Africa occurred whilst he was in charge of the country.

Successive British governments (with the exception of Margaret Thatcher’s) from Harold Wilson’s onwards of course continually kow-towed to the SF/IRA terrorists – the reason for this clearly being pure cowardice. In the case of ANC terrorism it seemed as if all the governments of the entire Western world were intent upon acting as apologists for their evil atrocities however. The reason for this is far more difficult to fathom, but was probably because they wished to suck-up to other Third World governments in order to obtain illusionary economic advantages. No matter what their reasons were the result was obvious – the appeasement of one set of terrorists only gave the green-light to another set of terrorists. They were shown that terrorism pays!

It has of course been an old foe of Western Civilisation – expansionist Islam, now once again resurgent – which has been most encouraged by these examples of cowardice and appeasement towards both SF/IRA and ZANU-PF/ANC terrorism. It hasn’t taken many years for the more militant Islamic fundamentalists to realise that their centuries-old ambition of conquering and subjugating the entire planet can be far more easily achieved by continuous individual acts of terror rather than by their armed invasions of the past. By surrendering to hate-filled Irish republican nationalism and hate-filled African nationalism during the latter half of the 20th century it has been the even more insidious hate-filled Koranic theology which has taken advantage during subsequent years.

But all is not gloom and doom. Stronger ad more determined Western leaders such as Putin, Trump and May have suddenly emerged, and their ascendancy throughout the West has manifested itself by the complete change in the global zeitgeist during 2016. Already President Trump has shown bravery and decisiveness by taking firm military action against the evil Islamic terrorists’ dark heartlands in Syria and Afghanistan. There is suddenly hope for the West once again.



Unfortunately delays in co-ordinating plans for the Springbok Club’s planned trip to see the University Boat Races on the Thames meant that this excursion had to be postponed for another year. Members and supporters of the Springbok Club did however manage to enjoy watching the races on television screens!


The Kent Branch of the Springbok Club is organizing a trip to the Medway Towns on Sunday 30th April. The day will start with a visit to the Woodlands Cemetery in Gillingham in order to pay respects at the grave of Lieutenant Commander Eugene Kingsmill Esmonde, VC, DSO, who won the VC whilst serving in the Fleet Air Arm during WWII. A short talk about the life and naval career of Lt.Comm.Esmonde will then be recounted. After this visit the Springbok Club party will proceed to Rochester in order to enjoy events in the annual Rochester Sweeps Festival. Assemble in the foyer of Gillingham Railway Station at approximately 12.00 noon, or if you only wish to attend the Rochester Sweeps Festival meet-up in the vicinity of the King’s Head (half-way along Rochester High Street) at approximately 14.30 hrs. For more details about both these events beforehand please e-mail:, or to co-ordinate rendezvous arrangements on the day ‘phone: 07711188430.


Later during the year the Springbok Club will be staging several most interesting activities, including a meeting to be addressed by a famous wildlife conservationist, three events featuring prominent personalities from Rhodesia’s UDI years, and a special meeting where the guest speaker will be an eminent visiting South African. Two more long-term events for 2017 have also already been arranged, firstly a trip to the WWII battlefield at Arnhem in the Netherlands over the weekend of 11th/13th August, and secondly the organisation’s participation in the annual “Raising of the Flag” ceremony in Norfolk on Sunday 10th September. We ask all supporters therefore to diarise both of these events, and to let us know if they are keen to attend by either e-mailing: or by ‘phoning: 07711188430.



Continuing failure to make contact with either Mr. Patrick O’Dwyer or with his sister Ms. Lorraine O’Dwyer/Easter concerning arrangements to finalise the formal merger between New Britain and the Swinton Circle have meant that officials of the Swinton Circle have decided to proceed with the merger between the two organization (which was agreed by Mr. Dennis Delderfield shortly before he died) unilaterally. The surprise calling of a General Election has furthermore meant that the planned merger-meeting to be addressed by a leading MEP who was closely involved in the “Vote Leave” campaign has had to be postponed until the early summer. The organisation is however planning an event to celebrate Empire Day and Bermuda Day on or around 24th May, and more details about this will be given in next month’s edition of the SCN.



A supporter still trapped in the “new” South Africa has recently sent us a most harrowing, albeit very uplifting, report about the efforts of the Karoo Donkey Sanctuary in rescuing and protecting donkeys and horses from suffering and cruel slaughter throughout the Cape Province. Inter alia this report contains the following revelations :-

“Mothers and foals re-united after a horror experience are now living a fantastic life of freedom and safety at the magical Karoo Donkey Sanctuary.

“Members of the Karoo Donkey Sanctuary in Prince Albert and the Animal Rescue Organisation in Schaapkraal Road, Ottery, Cape Town became aware of a nightmare situation brewing in Hartzwater in the Northern Cape, South Africa. Following an NSPCA report of illegal donkey slaughter for the Chinese medicine trade (similar to the Rhino Horn and Lion bone trade), the KDS team decided to attend the auction to find out more. In the meantime, ARO in Cape Town sent out an appeal for help and our ARO Champions responded. Over R250,000 was raised and used to buy and save some of the donkeys up for auction. Well done to you all and thank you so much. This massive collaborative rescue mission has brought the truth of donkey slaughter in South Africe into the open.

“Sadly though, not all donkeys could be saved. The demand for donkey skins in China is due to production of EJIAO, a substance which is created when donkey skins are soaked and boiled. Skins can fetch thousands of Rands and have become hot property, resulting in widespread theft, horrific ‘back yard’ slaughter practices and general cruelty of an outrageous nature. Reports of live skinnings and donkey bludgeoning have surfaced. It is a shameful tragedy that South Africa has not already banned this horrific trade.

“Please see the NSPCA FaceBook page for news on the donkey crisis in South Africa and Karoo Donkey Sanctuary on FaceBook for more information and updates including all the ‘afte’" pictures ~ may these rescued few be a symbol of hope for those who do not make it while generating awareness and support for the banning of this dreadful trade. The Animal Rescue Organisation has offered to shelter some of the donkeys in Cape Town (from the Karoo Donkey Sanctuary) to help re-home them to loving new homes “

On 13th March 2017 the Commonwealth Games Federation announced that it was stripping Durban of its rights to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Durban had originally been awarded these Games following the withdrawal of the only other competing city in the race, Edmonton in Canada, because of a downturn in the Canadian economy under the Trudeau Government. It soon became apparent, however, that the Durban bid contained neither the necessary financial backing nor the organisational planning to stage the Games adequately, and so the Commonwealth Games Federation was therefore forced to act.

This development should come as no surprise whatsoever to sports fans around the world. The three previous major global sporting competitions held in the “new” South Africa – the Rugby World Cup of 1995, the Cricket World Cup of 2003 and the Soccer World Cup of 2010 – all proved to be disasters to one extent or another, with lower than expected crowds, lack of infrastructure facilities, assaults (in some cases even involving murders) against visiting players, officials and supporters – and of course in the case of the 1995 Rugby World Cup the notorious poisoning of New Zealand players prior to the final!

The Commonwealth Games Federation is therefore to be congratulated upon acting so early and decisively in order to prevent a further disaster – a move which must be applauded by all true sports fans and supporters of civilized standards of law and order alike. Already Liverpool and Birmingham in the UK, Toronto in Canada and several Australian cities have expressed an interest in taking over as hosts for the 2022 Games. All of these first-world cities will undoubtedly be able to stage a successful and captivating Games, and we wish whoever proves to be the eventual winners well.



A long-standing supporter of our movement has recently sent us a copy of an excellent letter which he’s sent to the current Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow. It reads as follows :-

“Mr Speaker

“I am amazed at the numbers of people who are demonstrating against Trump’s ban on admitting immigrants from mainly Moslem countries. Apparently, you and all these people are in favour of allowing people into their country people who are adherents to an extreme religious sect which promotes and encourages:

· Thrashing women in public because they have had sexual relations with their loved ones before marriage.

· Stoning to death in public, women who have committed adultery.

· Calling for people to be murdered because they have apparently insulted their long dead leader, Muhammed.

· Condoning and encouraging marriages between adult men and young girls who are not yet teenagers.

· Strapping explosives to young girls of 13 and exploding them in public places.

· Treating women as chattels with virtually no rights.

· Practising female genital mutilation on young girls.

· Murdering groups of innocent people who have not committed any of the so called crimes listed above.

“You, like them have shown that you have twisted and strange mentalities and values. In particular, for you, as Speaker of the House of Commons, the prime law making institution of the United Kingdom, to advocate allowing Moslems into the country when they profess to set up their own laws and courts is a mind boggling example of crass stupidity. You have absolutely no right to be the speaker of the House of Commons or to profess to represent in any way the views of the vast majority of the UK population. An abject apology in public is the first thing you should do before resigning.”

“The Lucky Bean Tree” is a story of ‘trading places’; of how the Whites, once the dominant race are now chauffeuring the Blacks, and of how the African maids have themselves become ‘madams’. Good for some, worse for others, but certainly bad for Stella. How will she cope? Will a ditzy blonde, who hasn’t lifted a finger in 19 years, manage to support an ever growing household? Not only must Stella haggle with street vendors for sugar and rice but there’s the never ending gin demand. In the big bad world of Premier Mpofu prostitutes demand payment in diesel. So it’s either ‘in bed with the regime’, or it’s imprisonment and ruinous fines, (million dollar notes have been introduced to beat 230 million % inflation). The Re-development Programme (R.D.P.) has been renamed ‘the Revenge of the Dark Persons’ because nothing is re-developed. But the worst thing about the tyranny is the way it renders the crazy, commonplace. Mozepweans have grown so used to the violence that they have forfeited the ability to become shocked. It’s just normal living.

“The Lucky Bean Tree” is on Amazon Kindle UK as an e-book. The cost is $2.99 or the equivalent in £s.



No.221 – Mr. WILLIE OTTO of Durban.

Willie Otto lived on the Bluff in Durban, and was a keen member of the Conservative Party of South Africa during the late 1980s. A most friendly person, he once expressed strong support for the work of the Patriotic Forum, but alas disappeared from the scene shortly after this, and was never heard of again. It would be very interesting to learn whatever happened to him.



2017 marks the 100th Anniversary of the Balfour Declaration – the statement by the then British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour, the 1st Earl of Balfour, in support of the establishment of a national home for the global Jewish people in the Holy Land, then known as Palestine. It was a declaration which led to the ending of over 1800 years of statelessness for the Jewish people, and is therefore something which we must all be proud of. Special celebrations are being planned to mark this anniversary in November, and a special web-site has been set up for this purpose which can be accessed at :-





I believe that the “phony outfit” which you referred to in the article “Remembering Nick Fourie” (March 2017 SCN – Ed.) was the AWB, commonly known as “Afrikaners Without Brains” in South Africa.

Your efforts to excuse Mr.Fourie, evidently a good friend of yours, for his stupidity in becoming involved with this ridiculous bunch of clowns is praiseworthy, but honestly, anybody foolish enough to be taken in by such a phony and laughable outfit does not deserve all the accolades which you’ve given him.

Your report about cruelty to animals in today’s South Africa is only the tip of the iceberg. You only have to know what these creatures did to the animals of the old Rhodesia who tried to defend their masters’ houses! The whole continent should sink beneath the waves and the world would be the better for it.

I wish the world would stop glorifying them. But the news is getting out, we are making sure of that. The real “icons” of this country are the Whites (always the Whites!) who work with animals from so-called poor areas. How they do it I don’t know. I haven’t got the emotional strength but I support five animal charities to the best of my ability.

When I see that Kardashian creature with a $4million ring on her finger, and then we hear of a woman here who hasn’t got enough money to replace her car engine, then I don’t know what life is all about!

I will have a chapter in my book about these real icons and about the circumstances under which they operate. No-one in the Western world knows what Whites confront here every day, in the land they created. These creatures here are the ones burn their fellow Africans alive in the street, and then dance around the burning victim, cheering! This was their “revolution”, and Mandela never uttered a peep of criticism or asked them to stop. And the world calls him an icon?? His wife Winnie said on the stage “with our boxes of matches and our tires, we will liberate this country” (referring to the necklace method where a tire is placed on the shoulders of the victim, filled with petrol and set alight), and Mandela said nothing about that either.

She’s just turned 80 and is being feted at dinners and receptions, after having had a face-lift (by a White doctor naturally!). What a crazy world! No wonder Europe doesn’t want them and everybody hates them. Just look at the USA after 350 years!

As a British Unionist, I believe in one system of law and local government throughout the UK. As a patriot, I was absolutely disgusted at the weakness of British governments' responses to the IRA, culminating in pardoning terrorists and an absurdly undemocratic Parliament in Northern Ireland. The correct policy was to smash the IRA and fully integrate Northern Ireland into the UK.

I am even more disgusted at the way our ex-servicemen are being hounded when terrorists were let off. We should declare full amnesty for them for anything they may have done in Northern Ireland, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq or anywhere else. That they might have overstepped the mark in a combat situation while dealing with terrorists and thugs is irrelevant. They should answer to military discipline, not ‘politically correct’ army-hating lawyers.

As a point of interest, I was manager of a hotel/motel in Gwelo, Rhodesia in the early to mid 70s. One of our female employees didn't appear for work one morning. We were concerned for her as her brother worked for the BSAP. I was an interim member of the Rhodesian Front and my local member Desmond Lardner-Burke had just stepped down from his role as RF Member for Gwelo. But he was a regular visitor to our motel on a Sunday afternoon where he enjoyed a chat and some tea. As an Aussie, I always saw Desmond as a Pom in Rhodesian clothing. But he was anything but a Pom. He was Rhodesian through and through. He knew my sister was conservative and he never thought twice about telling me a few things about his country.

Getting back to the story, our female employee [Maria] was found days later, under a tree, and her face was bloodied terribly. After securing her emotions and with great difficulty Maria told us of Mugabe who personally removed her lips with pliers. Mugabe apparently was an active bush fighter when it suited him. He also had little regard for his soldiers and, as with Hani, Mugabe treated his ZANLA soldiers like garbage.

Mugabe hated Joshua Nkomo. Mugabe usually kept to the northern parts of Rhodesia, but on occasions his forces moved into typical Ndebele country until Mugabe lost patience with Nkomo, and with a regiment of North Korean soldiers, almost destroyed the Ndebele of Bulawayo and southern districts of Rhodesia.

No amount of surgery could make Maria's face human again. I lost track of her when I eventually left Rhodesia and headed back south to Jo’burg. When 1980 became the calendar date and Mugabe 'won' the election, I was already out of Africa and with disdain I watched southern Africa commit political suicide. It was only a short time later in 1985 when PW Botha spoke of the Rubicon; then we knew for sure there was no retreat from the chaos of what was surely to come.

We have recently learnt that two of the main disruptive elements which helped wreck the disastrous Swinton Circle meeting of 31st July 2015 have met with their own severe problems. “What goes around, comes around” – as they say!

Firstly we have learnt that after having been found guilty of electoral fraud by submitting fraudulent nomination forms, Mr. Steve Uncles of the “splittist” so-called “English Democrats” (who gate-crashed the notorious meeting of 31st July 2015 completely uninvited, and then proceeded to disrupt the start of the meeting by shouting out insulting comments about the Union Flag) has now been sentenced to seven months imprisonment.

Secondly the “Liberty GB” organization, whose leader was initially invited to address this meeting, only for them then to repay this act of friendship by “inviting” along some two dozen most unwelcome and poisonous political extremists without any form of authority or prior notification, now seems to be disintegrating into personal feuds. As we reported previously, one of the main trouble-makers involved, a certain Jack Buckby, seems to have left the organisation in order to establish his own weirdly-named “Proud Boys” organization. Now comes news that the apparent 2-i-c in the organisation, Dr. (we are uncertain whether his doctorate is authentic or simply obtained from a “bucket-shop on-line college”) George Whale, who of course sarcastically “congratulated” us upon organising the disastrous meeting of 31st July 2015 after it had collapsed into chaos, has now apparently left the party in order to join the vile and obnoxious Islamo-fascist so-called “London Forum”.

In addition another rogue who caused severe problems for the Swinton Circle some years earlier, Mr.Allan Robertson, has apparently hit yet further trouble in his attempts to found a rival “London Swinton Circle”. Having advertised a string of unsavoury and cranky nonentities as “guest speakers” over recent months, he at last advertised that a decent high-profile guest speaker would be addressing his group in March – only for this meeting then to be abandoned at short notice. Although he claimed that this was because of the recent terrorist outrage on Westminster Bridge, our information is that there was far more involved in this abandonment than Robertson was prepared to admit. Significantly he subsequently announced that this meeting had been “cancelled”, rather than “postponed”.




It was with great sadness that we recently learnt that Gary McDougall had died in South Africa last year. Gary McDougall was Rhodesian born and bred, and served with distinction in the Rhodesian SAS during the final years of the Bush War. He relocated first to South Africa and then to the UK after the fall of Rhodesia, and became an active and extremely popular stalwart of the Kent Branch of the Rhodesians Worldwide organisation. Alas, much against the advice of other branch members, his wife Bev persuaded him to return to South Africa a few years ago, a move which tragically proved to be fatal for him. He was apparently diagnosed with lung cancer shortly after arriving back in South Africa (he had been a heavy smoker), and although this would undoubtedly have been treatable in any first-world country if diagnosed early enough, under current South African conditions he sadly rapidly succumbed, in spite of being an otherwise very fit man only in his 50s. Our sincere condolences are extended to his widow Bev, and trust that she will somehow be able to relocate back to a safer land soon.
