March 2003 Edition.


March 2003 edition

It was Enoch Powell who warned about the threat posed by "the enemy within" during the late 1960s. Rarely has this "enemy within" been presented more clearly and vividly in all its hideous and revolting form than during the pro-Saddam Hussein demonstrations staged in London and other cities of the West on February 15th.

Make no bones about it, these demonstrations WERE in support of the Islamic tyrant and terrorist godfather Saddam Hussein rather than being "anti war" as the organisers tried to portray. If the demonstrators had been genuinely "anti war" then surely they would have supported all efforts made by the West to rid the despot Hussein of his weapons of mass destruction, which threaten us all?

On February 15th we witnessed a despicable unholy alliance between fundamentalist Muslim immigrants, the extreme Left (and we mean the EXTREME Left) and self-hating Guardian-reading liberal trendies marching through the streets of the capital city of a country which they self-evidently detest and wish to destroy. The Blair Government may be praised for taking steadfast military action to rid the world of the evil tyrant Saddam Hussein, but must equally be criticised for not taking action to stop these anti-Western demonstrations within our own midsts. The demonstrators involved - or certainly their ring-leaders - should have been rounded up and either deported or imprisoned for the traitors which they so obviously are.

It goes without saying that this publication - together with all other patriotic organisations around the West - gives its full and unqualified support to the just and necessary military action currently being taken by the true leaders of the West to remove the dangerous threat of Saddam Hussein's evil Iraqi regime. It would be totally hypocritical for us to do otherwise. We haven't forgotten September 11th, Bali and Mombasa, even if others may have.

Of course if the job had been finished in 1991 (as of course S.A.Patriot-in-Exile advocated at the time!) then there would have been no need for military action today, and a lot of innocent people who have died as a result of Hussein's vicious rule would still be alive today. It is also probable that if the West hadn't shown such weakness from 1991 onwards that September 11th and other terrorist atrocities would never have occurred.

As we also accurately predicted in earlier editions of the SCN, President George W. Bush has proved himself to be a great leader, indeed probably the greatest US President of all time. Rarely has a Western leader shown such courage and resolution, and rarely has a serving politician qualified for the accolade of statesman so early during his term in office. All of us in the West are fortunate to have such an inspirational leader during these most dangerous times.

If we have one disagreement with President Bush, however, then it is that his identification of the Axis of Evil does not go far enough. As well as Iraq, Iran and the PDRK it should also surely include Gadaffi's tyrannical regime in Libya - and also, we would argue, those countries nearest to our hearts in southern Africa, those suffering under those other unreconstructed terrorists Mugabe, Nujoma, and yes, Mbeki. Once the War Against Terrorism has been won in Iraq and the Iraqi people have been liberated then we hope that the leaders of the West will turn their attentions towards these beleagured countries of southern Africa, and to initiate regime-changes in these countries as well.



At their February meeting the Springbok Club was most honoured to welcome Mr. Gary Cartwright as guest speaker. Mr. Cartwright is the London and South-Eastern representative of the National Ex-Services Association (NESA), and gave a masterful speech to a very well-attended gathering in which he outlined the work of NESA, and emphasised the present precarious state of Britain's defences. He went on detail how Saddam Hussein's rogue regime in Iraq had obtained much of the technology which they needed to develop their weapons of mass destruction from some of the former states of the Soviet Union, and how not all of the "enemy within" could be dismissed simply as Lenin's "useful idiots".



The Springbok Club will be staging a visit to the Royal Engineers Museum, Prince Arthur Road, Gillingham, Kent (a short bus journey or 20 minutes walk from Gillingham Railway Station) on Saturday 29th March, assembling outside the museum at 11.30 hrs. This museum contains a vast array of material illustrating the part played by the Royal Engineers in Britain's Imperial growth, including the silk Chinese robes given to General "Chinese" Gordon, and a number of artefacts connected with the Battle of Rorke's Drift. [N.B. there is a charge of £5.00 to enter the museum - concessions £2.50.] After this visit the Kent Branch of the Springbok Club will hold their AGM at the "Jolly Knight" public house in nearby Rochester High Street (10 minutes walk from Rochester Railway Station), which will commence at 14.00 hrs and which will be followed by a convivial informal gathering. All members and supporters of the Springbok Club are welcomed to attend either or both these events on March 29th.



Unfortunately the recent Chilterns Branch meeting of the Springbok Club was very poorly attended, which was particularly disappointing in view of the fact that a leading official of the Springbok Club made a long journey to attend and support this branch activity. On paper the Chilterns Branch has one of the largest numbers of supporters in the country, so it is a mystery therefore why this branch struggles so badly. It has been suggested that many people failed to attend this recent meeting because it fell on the same day as the England v. Pakistan World Cup match and the Wales v. England 6-nations rugby international - but those who did attend finished the evening by watching the Wales v. England match on the pub's giant video screen! If you know any supporter or potential supporter who lives in the Chilterns area please do your best to encourage them to become actively involved in the branch.

The London Branch of the Springbok Club will be holding their next gathering in April. Full details will be given in the April edition of the SCN.

We are pleased to announce that Mr. Daniel Wilkinson has been elected to the Springbok Club Executive Committee, and takes over as Branch Development Officer.

Lin Chandler writes as follows:-

I am an ex-Rhodie, and having lived in Oz for ten years was drawn back to my beloved Africa. In all the years since I left, and hearing more and more heart wrenching tales, (human and animal) I have kept saying to myself, "Why doesn't someone get up and do something?" At last something is happening!

On the 1st September I met Jay Jay Sibanda who is from Harare, now living in Johannesburg, and he is rallying support. We have had a number of meetings and I am absolutely thrilled with his commitment to make a difference. Jairos Tamangani also ex-Harare is working closely with him. On 29th October they organised a peaceful, protest march in Sandton, asking motorists who wanted Mbeki to make a stand against Mugabe to HOOT! It was deafening from 6.00 to 10.00 am! Furthermore, the demonstration was covered by the local TV station - E-TV, by CNN, by radio stations 702 and Highveld, and by various papers. On 9th November they held a rally in Hillbrow, and plan a similar event in Pretoria. Within weeks, a group of - we hope 10 000 - will walk from Jo'burg to Pretoria, with a petition to hand to Mbeki, and depending on that outcome a further walk from Jo'burg to Beit Bridge will be happening in the New Year, with a message to be handed to Mugabe.

"Reaction!" campaigns for the real Britain of traditional values, and opposes the modernist Britain of Tony Blair - a nation in name only, in which feminism, Euro-federalism and Americanisation have blurred our identity to an extent that we no longer know who we are or where we are going. "Reaction!" opposes multiculturalism and aims that people of all faiths and races should put England and Britain first. The magazine is bi-monthly and has covered, amongst other things, the following aspects of politics:

1. The dumbing down of society, education, our language and way of life.
2. Modernisation and the discarding of our traditions, design, manners etc.
3. The rise of political correctness and its threat to freedom and tradition.
4. The subverting of the Conservative Party by liberal-Left elements.
5. UKIP, its successes in promoting anti-EU initiatives, and its failure to oppose the other threats to our national life such as multiculturalism.
6. Other extra-parliamentary parties of the non-Tory Right such as the Populist Party, New Britain, the Freedom Party and the Countryside Party etc.
7. Pressure groups such as the Freedom Association, the Conservative Monday Club and the CDA, and their efforts in promoting traditional conservative policies.

We try to be as positive and even-handed towards all patriotic and anti-liberal establishment groups, and we also provide reviews and cultural analysis from a traditionalist, ecological and nostalgic point of view. Our aim is to reawaken peoples’ curiosity in the past, both recent (20th century) and historic. "Reaction!" is a cultural magazine with a special interest in the decline over the post-WWII period. We also provide listings of Internet sites and social/political/cultural groups which may be of interest to readers. In order to receive a sample copy of the magazine please write to Reaction!, PO Box 14910, London SE18 3WA, UK.



Many readers may have received postings from an outfit calling itself the "Homecoming Revolution", who are pathetically trying to persuade South Africans who have fled to the safety of exile to return to their disintegrating country. This outfit, of course, is nothing more than a thinly-veiled front for the ANC-terrorist regime (note the ANC colour-schemes on their postings), who are apparently desperate for skilled manpower to prop-up the infrastructure of the state which they have ruined. In the propaganda which they use to "sing the praises" of the "new" South Africa they resort to at least one downright lie however. They claim that the "Computicket" on-line booking system was developed in South Africa. It wasn't. It was developed by the IPC computer department in London during the early 1970s, but as it wasn't financially viable in a complex society like the UK it was sold to a South African agency around 1972. This present writer knows this to be a fact because he worked for the IPC computer department at the time!



For Zim this could be the last ditch
When Bob's team takes a stand on the pitch.
They might lose each wicket
Playing his brand of cricket
To embarrass the son of a bitch

No.53 : Mr. ALAN MOUNTFORD of Durban.

Alan Mountford was born at Stoke-on-Trent in November 1948, the son of local club managers and licensee's. He married Pat (now Pat Perfect - who of course owns the Brown Bear pub in Aldgate East where the Springbok Club often hold their London Branch meetings) and emigrated to South Africa in the early 1970s. A keen sportsman (he played soccer for Durban Collegians) he was a charismatic wit and raconteur, who rapidly become a well-known personality in the Durban area, and was always to be seen at all the best social gatherings. After his sad and unexpected divorce from Pat he re-married, but alas this marriage apparently did not last either. Pat has now unfortunately lost contact with him, but several of his old Durban colleagues would be very keen to re-contact him.

Despite all the facts that you mention in the SCN regarding Ali Bacher, there is one that you haven't recognised. All the sucking up is done with one purpose....MONEY. Ali Bacher will suck up to anyone for money. So, he is just protecting his comfortable position in cricket, protecting his pension and retirement, and protecting his share of the profits. Wouldn't you?

Cricket here is in a bit of a mess.

Percy Sonn, senior cricket administrator, gets drunk at one of the fixtures (no booze allowed for us plebs in the stands, naturally), calls a woman in one of the nearby boxes a whore and swears like a trooper - and nothing happens.

Majola somebody or other (cannot remember his Christian name), and I think chairman of the South African Cricket Board, hasn't spoken to the elected players representative for months.

On the other hand Errol Stewart of the South African 'A' Side refuses to play in Zimbabwe on moral grounds, and Majola is reported as saying that Stewart must never be selected to represent South Africa again.

Yours etc.,

Rod Baker, Cape Town



Many readers will remember the saga of young Mr. Arthur Kemp, the former so-called colleague and supporter who we revealed was working for the "new" South African security services - only then to discover that this fact had earlier been exposed by the "Mail & Guardian"!

Kemp's current apparent task is to adopt a "neo-Nazi" stance and then to associate himself with conservative and patriotic movements in South Africa - thus trying to smear them with neo-fascist connections. Kemp of course never displayed such neo-Nazi sentiments all the time we knew him in South Africa - and indeed was always quite prepared to write for S.A.Patriot at this time!

A colleague has recently forwarded us an interview which Kemp conducted with an on-line service called TightRope however. On the face of it Kemp's comments seem quite excellent, inter alia advocating that all Whites should leave Mugabe's terrorist-ruled Zimbabwe - but wait a minute, where does Mr. Kemp now live? Having escaped to the safety or rural Oxfordshire he has now voluntarily returned to ANC terrorist-ruled South Africa! Even more sinister, however, is the fact that upon closer inspection this TightRope service turns out to be connected to the overtly neo-Nazi "Storm Front" web-site!
