February 2015 Edition.

SPRINGBOK CYBER NEWSLETTER

February 2015 edition

Last month witnessed two important anniversaries which reminded us all of the facts, triumphs and horrors of World War Two. The first was the 50th anniversary of the funeral of Sir Winston Churchill, and the second was the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Sir Winston Churchill can probably be regarded as the greatest Briton of all time – indeed he won a nationwide poll for this title run by the BBC just a few years ago hands-down. Rarely has one individual managed to pack so much achievement into one lifespan. He excelled in the military during his early life, as a politician in his middle-age and as an inspirational statesman in his latter years. To be sure he made some mistakes, but these were far fewer and less important than the mistakes made by most human beings during their lifetime. The disastrous Gallipoli/Dardanelles Campaign, initiated when he was First Lord of the Admiralty, is often quoted as his most serious mistake, but the fact of the matter is that the strategy behind this campaign which Churchill devised was undoubtedly brilliant – the disaster was caused however by flawed military tactics on the spot. Churchill however did the honourable thing and resigned from the Government as a result of this failure, an act of self-sacrifice and pure decency that was typical of the man. Rather than retiring to the backbenches of Parliament or into quiet retirement he instead proved his great courage and patriotism by re-enlisting in the Army for the final years of WWI. Here he was able to witness firsthand the fiendishness of the Germans on the battlefield, which as a result made him realize that Germans simply couldn’t be trusted. This personal experience convinced him during the following two decades that Germany remained a serious threat to the rest of Europe, when other political leaders of the period who had not fought themselves on the frontline foolishly believed that Germany could be appeased. Churchill was not only proved right of course, by his ascent to power in 1940 totally inspired the British nation and Empire, and it is no exaggeration to say that without his leadership evil would have triumphed, and the whole of the Western world would have been plunged into a new dark age, the true satanic nature of which we were reminded about at the anniversary ceremonies commemorating the liberation of Auschwitz. It was not surprising therefore that at the time of his funeral in January 1965 the whole of Britain and the Commonwealth – indeed the whole of the civilized world – mourned his passing with an outpouring of grief which had never been seen before or since.

In view of the above it was quite strange therefore that there were a number of quite critical comments about Churchill expressed in the media at the time of the anniversary of his funeral. Many condemned the great man because he was a “racist” and an “Imperialist”. The term “racist” can be interpreted in many different ways of course. If it is used to mean someone holding an irrational hatred of any particular ethnic group then not only did it most certainly not apply to Churchill, but instead it applied to the very German Nazis who he so courageously fought against! If however the term “racist” is used to describe someone who recognizes and respects the racial differences between peoples then not only was it an accurate attribute of Churchill, but it was further something to praise – for surely it applies to all but the most fanatical egalitarians! There is no ambiguity about the term “Imperialist” however, and furthermore it is a worldview which is sorely needed today. There can surely be little doubt that the great European Empires of the 19th and 20th centuries – and the British Empire in particular – were the greatest forces for good which the world has ever seen. They brought an end to savagery, primitiveness and disregard for the earth’s environment. Had Churchill been re-elected in 1945 then Britain would not have surrendered India, and the whole subsequent sell-out of Empire – ending obscenely with the destruction of civilized rule in South Africa – would probably never have taken place, and the world would therefore now be a far better state than it sadly is. Churchill should not be condemned therefore – indeed what Britain and the Western world as a whole needs so desperately is for a new Churchill to arise. We are confident that in the days ahead such a new and inspiring Churchillian figure will emerge!

SPRINGBOK CLUB NEWS

The Springbok Club held its 2015 AGM last month whereat, in spite of an unexpectedly low attendance, a new Committee for 2015 was elected, including some quite refreshing “new blood”. After the business side of the meeting was concluded the Organiser described the 2014 “Raising of the Flag” ceremony in Norfolk, an event which he had attended and had given a keynote speech at. It was further agreed that the organization would give their ful support to the 2015 “Raising of the Flag” ceremony, when hopefully far more of their members and supporters would be able to attend.

----------------------------

Unfortunately the Springbok Club’s trip to the Saracens v. Northern Transvaal Blue Bulls match turned out to be an complete debacle. In spite of having been given a very generous discount offer on tickets by Saracens RFC, the organization was not able to raise the sufficient number of attendees in order to take advantage of this offer. This not only resulted in financial hardship for those who did try to attend the match, but also huge embarrassment and humiliation for the organization both in the eyes of officials at Saracens and of the wider expatriate South African community. This must never be allowed to happen again.

----------------------------

As a result of the debacle at the Saracens v. Northern Transvaal Blue Bulls match, and a number of other disappointingly poor attendances at Springbok Club functions which he had tried to organize, the Organiser of the organization decided that as he was proving incapable of motivating members and supporters the only honourable thing to do was to resign from all official positions within the Springbok Club. It is hoped therefore that whoever is elected or appointed to take his place will prove to have far greater ability in motivating and inspiring members and supporters. Full details about future Springbok Club events will of course continue to be detailed in the SCN as soon as we learn about them from this successor.

SWINTON CIRCLE NEWS

The Swinton Circle gave its full support to New Britain’s annual Australia Day celebrations in January.

----------------------------

The Swinton Circle is planning a very interesting meeting towards the end of February at which the guest speaker will be a leading member of a like-minded philosophical society. Full details will be circulated to all members and supporters of the Swinton Circle in due course.

----------------------------

REPORT FROM THE ZIMBABWE CONSERVATION TASK FORCE

We have recently received the following report from the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force (ZCTF) concerning the capture of wild animals for export to China. This is a very disturbing development, so if anyone can alert any relevant authorities around the world to what is happening in order to put a stop to this practice it would be most appreciated by all :-

“BABY ELEPHANTS ABDUCTED FOR EXPORT TO CHINA

“We have received some very disturbing reports of animals being captured in Hwange National Park for export to China. Tourists and visitors to Hwange have complained about this.

“Apparently, China has ordered a certain number of animals, amongst which are 30 lions. So far, 34 baby elephants, 7 lions and about 10 sable have been captured and are being held at Mtshibi Capture Unit, 7km from Main Camp. The elephants are between 2 and a half and 5 years old.

“Our investigators have seen the animals and tried to take photos but were not allowed. The security there is very tight. They were told that the animals will be sent by container trucks to Maputo in Mozambique where they will be transferred to a livestock sea freighter and sent on to China.

“Why is Zimbabwe stealing from the future generation's natural resources? The baby elephants quite likely won't survive the trip and the only crime they have committed is being born in Zimbabwe. They are now being sentenced to a life of inhuman treatment. This is very traumatic, not only for the baby elephants but also for their families. Elephants don't forget and this is very dangerous for future visitors to Hwange.

“We have to try and stop this export from taking place.”

The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force can be contacted at: galorand@mweb.co.zw, on FaceBook at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/ZCTF-Zimbabwe-Conservation-Task-Force/246013052094585 or via their web-site at: www.zctfofficialsite.org.

LATEST NEWS CONCERNING CLIVE DERBY-LEWIS

The latest worrying report about the condition of that great South African patriot Clive Derby-Lewis which we have received from his wife Gaye reads as follows:-

“Clive Derby-Lewis simply shook his head as he listened to Justice Minister Masutha give his reasons for refusing him medical parole. Clive’s comment: par for the course.

“After the 1993 assassination of Chris Hani, Nelson Mandela stated that ‘in this case, we will not recognize indemnity for the murderer of Chris Hani’. This was followed by F.W.de Klerk who said ‘there will be no political amnesty for the persons who killed Chris Hani’. In December 1993, the ANC declared that it was determined ‘that whatever deal is struck about amnesty must not benefit Janus Walusz or Clive Derby-Lewis.’ In June 1994, Nelson Mandela again reiterated that ‘this case (the Derby-Lewis case) will be addressed in a different way’. Thereafter numerous ANC cadres from Robert McBride, Tokyo Sexwale, Geraldine Fra er-Moloketi, Matthews Phosa, Cheryl Carolus and none other than the then Justice Minister Dullah Omar expressed a similar opinion. Even the perennial Max du Preez said they shouldn’t be freed because it wouldn’t be ‘in the interests of reconciliation’. So the die was cast years ago with regard to Clive Derby-Lewis going free under the law. The politicians had decided.

“With regard to the Minister’s reasons for refusal:

1. There is nothing in the Act that says the granting of medical parole depends on remorse.

2. The Minister says Clive used a nom de plume on entering the hospital after he was stabbed in March 2014. There was a lot of media interest at the time which worried the Department of Correctional Services (DCS). In his judgment, the minister ‘bemoans Clive’s conduct’ with regard to the other name used. But it was DCS the Minister’s own department that insisted Clive use a nom de plume because of security reasons and the proximity of the press near the hospital. DCS was worried about the media getting into Clive’s ward so they CHAINED HIM TO HIS BED. The Minister clearly doesn’t know what happened in this regard. He should have checked WITH HIS OWN DEPARTMENT for the reasons for the different names.

3. The Minister also said he had not received the affidavits signed by both oncologists who treated Clive (Dr. van der Lingen and Dr. Fourie) to the effect that the nom de plume (du Plessis) belonged to Clive Derby-Lewis. These affidavits were handed to the Advisory Board’s Dr. N. Ndamase on 16 January 2015. She took them from the hospital and it is assumed she gave these affidavits to the Ministry or their representative. If the minister didn’t receive these affidavits, it’s not Clive’s fault. We are obtaining copies of these affidavits.

4. Dr. M. du Rand Clive’s physician said that the PET scan of Clive’s lung showed that the cancer had spread. Also, Dr.Fourie, the oncologist, declared that Clive’s cancer is already ‘inoperable’. The Minister declared that Clive could not be released until these two conditions were present but they are already present!

“We will be taking the Minister’s decision on urgent legal review.”

We trust that all readers will continue to keep Clive’s plight constantly in their thoughts, and if anyone can help in any way to procure his release we hope that they will do the best they can.

DUTCH ORCHESTRA WALKS OUT

We have recently received the following most encouraging report from a supporter in East Anglia :-

“When the most liberal leftist country in Europe pulls the plug on Islam, the world is beginning to see the light....

“The Dutch Orchestra walked out on a concert directed by a Muslim who made his personal beliefs known to Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands. Now that took courage. You can watch the walkout at the web-site quoted below.

“Well done to the Dutch Orchestra! This Dutch Orchestral Concert was staged on Friday 9th May 2014.

“Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands attended this Orchestral Concert. The Conductor, who just happens to be Muslim, proceeded to give the Queen a lecture on the ‘beauty’ of Islam. Then the members of the Orchestra stage a walkout!

“Great to see Dutch people with the courage of their convictions!”

"P.K. VAN DER BYL - AFRICAN STATESMAN" by Hannes Wessels

ISBN: 978-1-920143-49-7 / paperback / illustrated
Retail price: R250.00, Web-site price: R200.00 + postage

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.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW ?

No.195 : Mr. KEITH STEELE of Durban.

British-born Keith Steele was the group manager for the Gooderson’s hotel chain in Durban during the 1980s. An expert hotelier with a high reputation for efficiency, he was also a most affable personality at social gatherings. He acquired the nickname of “Keith Stalin” – only because “Stalin” was Russian for “Steel” we hasten to add, and not because of any political or dictatorial leanings on his part! It would be very interesting to learn what happened to him.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

ROUND OF 74

Sir,

The Sunningdale agreement was brought down by the 1974 strike, not the 1977 one as you stated in the obituary to Lord Bannside in the October edition of the SCN. Also surely British Unionists like you and me should have been in favour of ending Stormont and having the whole country under one system of government -including county councils in Northern Ireland?

Yours etc.,

Mark Taylor, London, U.K.

[ Yes, we unfortunately made a mistake about the date of the successful UWC strike! We accept that ideally Northern Ireland – like all parts of the UK – should be governed directly from Westminster, with local government being devolved to county council and district council levels, but such were and are the specific circumstances relating to Northern Ireland that historically the Stormont Parliament was necessary in practice. – Ed.]

----------------------------

VOICE OF RUSSIA

Sir,

We in Russia are still waiting for the great British leaders like Sir Winston Churchill or Margaret Thatcher. Unfortunately, there is nobody who can really lead your nation today. We do not call the British to love Russia. We would like to see leaders who will think about the BRITISH interests, not dragged by Frau Merkel or American president, or barking European ‘lilliputs’ (Lithuania, Estonia, etc). Ukraine can be compared with some African colony that will be ‘eaten’ by the new Russian Empire. Democracy is false. The UK could be a friend of the Russian bear and ‘have some prey’ too, or protect very dubious gnomes in Ukraine (who will be eaten sooner or later). Note the craftiest Italian and German (plus Serbian and Greek) businessmen fight for Russia's trade orders and for their gain. They will ‘eat together with the Russian bear at the common table’ and the British lion will feel hungry and offended. Can't the British leaders see the activity in Italy, Greece and Germany? Only the officials support Merkel and Obama, business owners do not support governments. They can ruin the EU faster than ‘Russian tanks’. .

You know that I am an admirer of the British Empire. It is a pity that the Chinese dragon will skim the Russian milk. Russia will survive despite any sanctions, Ukraine will be destroyed, but Europe will lose all its profit for China...

Yours etc.,

Boris Grig, Kaliningrad, Russia

----------------------------

FLASHER’S DUSKY HALF HOUR

Sir,

The latest rumour on the south coast is that the women who Anthony [Tony] Hancock was caught exposing himself to were Asian. So much for the great scion of the “Racial Preservation Society”!

Also I asked you to use the name “Sussex Democrat” with my last letter which you published, not “Sussex Patriot”!

Yours etc.,

“Sussex Democrat”, Shoreham, Sussex, U.K.

[ Yes, you indeed did! Sorry about the error. – Ed.]

----------------------------

EXTREME MOVE

Sir,

All over the world we get the same news: all Muslims are extremists. If they hate the West so much, what are they doing in Western countries?

All Islamists currently residing in the West must be repatriated. Remember to repatriate Obama as well.

Yours etc.,

Heinrich Koch, Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa.

NATIONAL REVIEW

Sir,

The 1913 Land Act was NOT the beginning of apartheid. Apartheid is a British creation which began with their taking of the Cape from the Dutch by force in 1806
True, it was not called apartheid, but it was an institutionalisation of their class system now predicated on race. This is what the Afrikaners inherited when they came to power in 1948 and named the existing status quo “Apartheid".

The real beginning of antipathy between Black and White in South Africa started in February 1838. The Boere/Voortrekkers left the Cape in 1834 to escape British Oppression. They reached Natal in 1838 and entered into negotiations with Zulu King, Dingaan. Territory was agreed in principle and when Piet Retief and his delegation arrived to ratify the agreement they were massacred. This was followed up with massacres of the the Voortrekker laagers at Bloukrans between Estcourt and Ladysmith. The Voortrekkers faced the Zulu down at the Battle of Blood River on 16 December 1838. They conquered the Zulu but did not occupy their territory and rule them. This was a marker: Leave us alone. You can’t be trusted. We want nothing to do with you.

The Boer republic of Natalia [Pietermaritzburg] was short lived for the British showed up in Durban and started imposing themselves on the Boere/Voortrekkers once again, so they abandoned Natal in 1843, trekked back across the Drakensberg again and established their republics of Orange Free State 1854 and Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek 1856 [later renamed Transvaal by the British].It was the British who then went to war against the Zulu, conquered them and annexed their territory, Zululand, to Natal [1870s]. This was after the British had conquered the Xhosa and annexed their territories to the Cape.

This process of “might is right diplomacy” was continued by the British until all 9 Black tribes and the two Boer Republics were conquered by 1902. The Coloured and Indian ethnic groups did not have a military capability and so posed no threat to the British. They were controlled by the simple expedient of hanging on to their jobs.

In 1910 this melting pot was consolidated into a unitary state - the Union of South Africa. This was beginning of the utopian dream of “multi-culturism, diversity and enrichment” that people like Michael Portillo rave on about. Britain’s day of reckoning is not far away. Predictions are that by about 2050 White, Caucasian, Keltic Britons will awake to find that they are a minority in the land of their birth. Like the Swedes (right now) the British will discover that ethnicity will trump nationality every time and that the immigrants will not assimilate and adopt the British way of life. Why should they? The are simply following the British example who imposed their will on all the people they conquered

There are interesting times ahead. The British chose to ignore the warnings of Enoch Powell etc. .Now Labour, the Tories and Lib-Dems are running scared as Nigel Farage mobilises the true conservative/class conscious/racist Brit into a political force. We will shortly see their true colours - dressed in very eloquent pc language.

Yours etc.,

A.B.D., Hertfordshire, U.K.

PLATTER-LAND

Sir,

This is what the “new” South African Government does to keep “apartheid” as alive as possible…..in the minds of millions of school children….

This is very important for our government to do - because the moment “apartheid” (which means “separate development”) dies they will have no excuses, or arguments, or explanation for their inabilities and lack of potential. They won’t be able to explain why they need “Black Economic Empowerment Laws” to force white-owned companies to appoint them in position they will never be able to achieve of their own accord. So they “punish” companies that do NOT employ (useless) Blacks in their top management structures, by forcing them out of the lucrative “tenderpreneur” and government-contract opportunities.

If “apartheid” dies they won’t have anything to blame for their inability to get an economy to grow, people to achieve, labourers to work, children to achieve, sports teams to do well, and maintaining a fully functional country with excellent infrastructure which they received on a platter in 1994…..

So they will do anything possible go keep “apartheid” alive - but they don’t have the conviction to “fully reverse” apartheid and move the remaining 4 or so million White people into the formerly TBVC-states (Transkei, Bophutatswana, Venda & Ciskei) known as the “home-lands”, force them to get a “permit” or “dompas” if any of them wants to “work” in the “new” South Africa,.and treat them exactly like the Blacks were treated by the previous government, and exempt all the “home land dwellers” of any form of “Income Tax”!

We are good enough to be discriminated against on just about every level of daily life,.but our taxes are good enough to fund a lifestyle we can only dream of!

Yours etc.,

J.M., Randburg, Transvaal, South Africa.

----------------------------

DARKEST AFRICA

Sir,

The South African postal strike has been suspended until sometime in January, unless the Government sorts out the problem, along with rolling blackouts from Eskom and massive funding of SAA!

Yours etc.,

Glenn MacAskill, Johannesburg, Transvaal, South Africa.

ROGUES GALLERY

Around April 2013 we were contacted by an individual named Andy Kimber who claimed that he supported the global patriotic ideals of our movement. Accepting his bona fides we of course gave him a warm welcome at meetings of both the Springbok Club and the Swinton Circle – in spite of his rather slovenly dress and unkempt appearance! After the Springbok Club’s Rhodes & Founders celebration meeting in July 2013, however, Kimber accosted this present writer at the bar and castigated him for allegedly “supporting South African nationalism and Rhodesian nationalism, but rejecting British nationalism”. Needless to say this altercation surprised us greatly, for not only did our movement consistently oppose the sell-out Nationalists in South Africa, but we were also unfamiliar with any organisation in Rhodesia which termed themselves “nationalists” – apart of course from ZANU-PF! We were also uncertain whether what Kimber referred to as “British nationalism” was the regional “nationalism” of the SNP/PC/SF-IRA variety, or the neo-fascist BNP variety – though subsequent investigations into Kimber have strongly suggested the latter. Kimber then went on to antagonise all members present by disparaging the 2012 London Olympic Games, thus showing that his original claim to be a patriotic Briton was completely false!

To give credit where credit’s due, Kimber subsequently apologised for alleging that we had supported the sell-out National Party in South Africa (and presumably the terrorist ZANU-PF in the erstwhile Rhodesia as well), claiming that he was unfamiliar with precise political terminology. We of course accepted this apology from Kimber, but in view of the fact that his apparent opposition to the 2012 London Olympics proved that he most certainly didn’t agree with our patriotic aims and objectives, we decided that the best action to take was to remove his name from our circulation lists. Shortly after this, alas, we learnt that he was aware of and was making reference to certain perverted pornographic pictures allegedly featuring this present writer. These pictures of course, as most readers will probably recall, were proved by Police investigations to have been circulated by known ANC sources, and have subsequently been revealed to have been concocted by the notorious PhotoShop expert, Holocaust denier and Police-cautioned indecent exposer the late Anthony “Tony” Hancock. How Kimber ever became aware of these fake photographs is unclear, but we thought it necessary to send him a lawyer’s letter warning him that if he was ever to allege that these fabricated pictures were authentic then we would sue him for libel.

Here we thought that this entire unsavoury episode would end, but unfortunately we have recently received an unsolicited e-mail from the wretched Kimber in which he claimed that we were accusing him of circulating nude pictures of one of our leading lady supporters! There was of course not a scintilla of truth in this bizarre and totally unsubstantiated allegation of Kimber’s, the nature of which strongly suggested that the man has severe psychiatric problems. We would therefore warn everyone to avoid all contact with this trouble-making character.
