June 2017 Edition.


June 2017 edition

On the face of it the result of the recent British General Election was a catastrophic disaster for patriotic forces around the West. The disaster wasn’t so much that the Conservative Party of Theresa May failed to consolidate power in the run-up to the Brexit negotiations (which was bad enough in itself), but rather that over 12 million of the electorate were prepared to vote for a party led by an evil terrorist-sympathiser. This of course is a frightening condemnation of the current state of British society – or perhaps more accurately a frightening revelation about the current numbers of alien immigrants allowed into the country! (The vote to leave the EU clearly came not a moment too soon!).

There were however two very positive developments from this election. Firstly, given the woeful standard of the Conservative election campaign (with a negative and totally uninspiring manifesto and a leader hogging all the airwaves yet failing to answer some of the most elementary questions), if the Labour Party under the odious Corbyn were unable to win under such circumstances then they surely will never be able to triumph under his leadership. The Conservative Party is therefore safely back in power, and negotiations for a “hard Brexit” can thus continue at pace. Secondly we can only be delighted that a Conservative majority is now dependent upon support from the DUP – which in reality is actually the best possible outcome which could be hoped for! The DUP are of course a more forthright party in upholding patriotic values, and also undoubtedly possess a far more virtuous moral compass, something which alas over recent decades seems to have deserted the Conservative Party (particularly their Scottish leadership!). It is to be hoped therefore that closer contact with the DUP will not only strengthen patriotic resolve within Conservative Party ranks, but will also cause the party to revert to its traditional stance in upholding decency and morality.

In spite of these pleasing outcomes, however, the fact remains that the main party of opposition in the UK remains in the hands of a leader and a close cabal of supporters who can only be described as pure evil. The Labour Party itself has proved totally incapable of ridding itself of the vermin Corbyn, McDonnell and Abbott etc. over the past couple of years, so we must therefore look elsewhere for some means of cleansing the British body politic of their poisonous influence. Happily it seems as if the unspeakable Diane Abbott has now been permanently removed from effective political life by what can perhaps be described as “Divine Providence”, but this can not necessarily be counted upon to remove Corbyn and McDonnell. It is therefore surely the task of the security services and others in authority to ensure that they are eliminated from public life by any legal means available as soon as possible, in order to protect and defend the nation as a whole. THE AUGEAN STABLES MUST BE CLEANSED!

At a meeting held last month The Swinton Circle officially merged with New Britain (having earlier merged with The 343 Group) to form The Patriotic Forum.


In order to celebrate the first anniversary of the glorious Brexit victory, The Patriotic Forum will be holding a special meeting later this month, the details of which are as follows :-

Date : Monday 26th June 2017

Time : 18.30 hrs for 19.00 hrs.

Venue : The GOLDEN FLEECE (the downstairs Cellar Bar), 8/9 Queen Street, City of London EC4N 1SP (nearest tube stations: Bank, St.Paul’s and Mansion House)

Guest Speaker: Mr. GARY CARTWRIGHT

Gary Cartwright has been heavily involved in the EuroSceptic movement for many years. In 2004 he was employed by Nigel Farage to work with the Independence & Democracy Group in the European Parliament, this being the political group that took the lead in the successful campaign against the proposed European Constitution in France in 2005. Subsequently he worked with various non-attached EuroSceptic British MEPs, leaving the European Parliament after the 2014 elections. Gary co-authored, along with Nikki Sinclaire, the petition calling for a referendum on our continued membership of the EU, which was presented to Downing Street in 2011, and the rest is history. It has been a chequered political journey, involving Russian spies, several punch-ups, and the odd court case. He also found time to publish a book, ‘Putin's Legacy'. Gary is the proud holder of two European Parliamentary records: the longest lunch-break (11 hours), and the most times thrown off the Parliament’s elementary French language course (5 times). He is not sure what he did wrong, he couldn’t understand what they were saying.

In his talk he will tell how the European Parliament is a strange place indeed, almost akin to a parallel universe. It is difficult to draw comparisons with any other political institutions known to man. It is, however, a surprisingly friendly place to work as a staff member, and particularly fascinating for one who has a great love of comedy. The EU, however, was always doomed to failure for the simple fact that the foundations were built around the wrong political model. Along the road to Brexit, valuable lessons were learned from the 2005 referenda on the proposed constitution in France and the Netherlands. The reaction of the political elite revealed the true face of the European Union, and provided us with evidence to support our criticisms of the democratic integrity of the EU. UKIP’s commitment to a referendum, however, was always questionable, and certain events that unfolded from 2010 onwards were to prove highly disturbing. Since June 23rd 2016 the attitude within the EU institutions towards Britain, and the British, has turned nasty. Even the British apparatchiks have turned against their own as they see their gravy train heading towards the sidings. As we now enter the negotiation phase of Brexit, the atmosphere has become positively malevolent.


Plans are afoot to launch a successor publication to S.A.Patriot-in-Exile which will support the new merged movement and which will be called The Imperial Patriot. All donations to assist in this new venture should be made payable to “Patriotic Press” and sent to: Patriotic Press, BM SAPAT, London WC1N 3XX, U.K. (If however you would prefer to make a donation via direct bank transfer please e-mail: and we will inform you the bank account details.)



We have recently received the following harrowing but defiant report from the founder of the Network for Animals charity :-

“In South Africa dogs are playing a vital role in saving rhinos and elephants from brutal and prolonged deaths. Brave tracker dogs sniff out and chase down poachers who are seeking to kill rhinos for their horns and elephants for their tusks

“These are loving and friendly dogs who enjoy what they do and seem to know that their work saves lives.

“Poachers shoot rhinos and elephants and while they lie helpless and critically wounded, a man with a huge knife gouges the horns from their heads or their tusks from their faces. I have seen a baby rhino that had been brutally hacked almost to death because she tried to save her mother from poachers. I have been sickened by the thought of elephants crumpled in death while jubilant poachers dance in glee as they hack out their tusks.

“Dogs hold a special place in animal lovers’ hearts. We also know that if we don’t win the war against the rhino and elephant poachers, these majestic animals will very soon be wiped out forever.

“Network for Animals has adopted a seven dog anti-poaching unit in South Africa’s Kruger Park. I am so proud of our dogs. Each day our super-dog team and the brave men who work with them hunt down poachers in the huge nature reserve, which is larger than the country of Wales. Some dogs are best at sniffing out poacher’s guns and others rhino horns and elephant tusks.

“The Kruger Park dogs are making an enormous difference in the war against poaching and make no mistake this is a war; in 2015, 1175 rhinos were killed in South Africa and the onslaught increased in 2016. Our team is out there fighting the good fight for dogs, rhinos and elephants.

“I have promised food and veterinary care for a team of seven super-dogs who are fighting to save rhinos and elephants in a war we must win if these animals are to survive. I can only make this promise because I know my supporters, wonderful people, will never let the animals down.”

Network for Animals can be contacted in this regard at:



For several years our movement has advocated and campaigned for British Lions-type teams to compete in all sports, and not just in Rugby Union, rather than the various component parts of the British Isles competing separately. It has therefore been a great joy to learn that plans are now afoot to initiate Women’s Rugby Union “British Lionesses” tours abroad in the same style as the long-established Men’s teams – and that furthermore discussions are taking place to merge British sides for future international Rugby Union Sevens competitions. We therefore congratulate the British Rugby Union authorities upon these most praiseworthy developments, and hope that it won’t be too long before other sports copy this initiative – particularly in Soccer!



It has been with great admiration that we learnt that commemorations in remembrance of all those who fought and died (on both sides) during the Anglo-Boer Wars have again been held in Tasmania, Australia, this year. Two such commemorations took place earlier this month, one at Hobart and the other at Launceston. Both Australians and South Africans participated in these events, including one ex-South African soldier who laid a wreath specifically in memory of all those who sadly died in the detention camps. We applaud Mr. Reg Watson of the Anglo-Saxon-Keltic Society for his initiative in orchestrating these estimable remembrance commemorations.

“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.223 – Mnr. PIERRE ROSSOUW of Johannesburg.

Pierre Rossouw was a friendly and affable active member of patriotic circles on the Rand during the 1980s, being a keen supporter of the HNP. He did however have a great fear of “big dippers” – as was once illustrated at the Rand Show! It would be very interesting to learn what has happened to him.



Although we’ve had some issues with The Bruges Group over the years, we must however congratulate them on an excellent analysis of why the Republic of Ireland should leave the EU which they have recently sent us.

My eye was caught by your item about John Hiddleston [May 2017 SCN – Ed.], and this brought back interesting memories from about 35 years ago.

I worked for SAP Special Branch at the time, and we were tipped off by RUC contacts (who we enjoyed friendly though unofficial links with) that he was an asset of MI6, and had been sent to South Africa to infiltrate and investigate the group who had offered a financial reward to anyone who could assassinate Joshua Nkomo. We kept tabs on Hiddleston almost from the moment that he first set foot on South African soil, but it soon became obvious that he wasn’t a very good agent for MI6 to use. He regularly associated with prostitutes, and made one girl (not a prostitute) pregnant, something which ended in an abortion. He also gained a criminal conviction for charging to see a movie on a Sunday (then a criminal offence), though we also learnt from the RUC that he had previously had a criminal conviction in Northern Ireland for stealing someone’s boat. As you know, he never held down any regular job in South Africa, yet regularly managed to travel between the UK and South Africa, but he also managed to alienate the right-wing circles which he had infiltrated and presumably was meant to spy on. He returned to the UK for the final time just before the ANC came to power, apparently when he was of no further use to MI6. Never knew what happened to him after that before reading your article.

By the way, how did he obtain the nickname of “Porky”?

Yours etc.,

“Z.Carr”, Durban, Natal, South Africa.

[ Hiddleston obtained the nickname of “Porky” following a schoolboy howler when he asserted during a school quiz that mint sauce should be served with pork! Schoolboys being schoolboys his classmates evidently wouldn’t let him live this howler down, and the nickname stuck. – Ed.]




Enoch Powell said in 1968 that our immigration policies amounted to "building our own funeral pyre." His disciple Harvey Procter warned of a potential Islamic fifth column in Britain. May I suggest that the aforementioned gentlemen both deserve an apology?

Yours etc.,

Mark Taylor, London, U.K.




What strikes me is that the townships are referred to as “informal settlements”. Where else in a developed country do people simply squat where they want? - and millions of them? Does it happen in Britain or the US, the two countries whose governments most pressured South Africa into accepting the ANC’s “democracy”?

People steal animals and then sell them at the side of the road! They also sell wildlife there as well. They have no love for animals, except in rare circumstances. The people at the Animal Rescue Organisation are the real heroes of South Africa. I couldn’t do their jobs.

Many of the animal horror stories are not reported. To whom? The police usually don’t give a jot about animals. They are simply there to be used or to make a profit from.

The Chinese are stealing and poaching our wildlife with the connivance of our ”authorities”. The Chinese steal tons of abalone. They are caught occasionally but are given light fines or sentences and get out of jail by bribing. Real third world stuff! This NEVER happened under a White government.

If a case docket is opened at the police station, the criminals sometimes pay a prosecutor’s staff member to make it disappear. A few years ago hundreds of police case dockets were found in a court officials garage. She had been paid to make them ”disappear”. The story goes on and on.

Now the national lottery which was created to help charities has cut off animal funding. There are lots of fingers in that cookie jar. It’s terrible living with these types. One is assailed with this sort of thing every day.

We are having upheavals here as our “president” is trying to take over the state’s finances. He has already ordered a custom-outfitted Boeing costing R1.4 billion while his people don’t have enough to eat. He’s nothing more or nothing less than the third world aberrations we find north of our borders. And de Klerk gave this country to them!

Yours etc.,

G.G.R., Transvaal, South Africa.



In last month’s edition we revealed the history and some of the renewed problems which we had received from a certain trouble-maker named Mark “Chi-Chi” Cotterill. We have subsequently heard from our friends at the Zimbabwe-Rhodesia Relief Fund that they have also recently experienced severe problems from this wretched individual. By all accounts his so-called “Heritage and Destiny” web-site had “advertised” the recent ZRRF meeting of 3rd May without any authorisation, and had claimed that the meeting was simply termed a “Rhodesia Group Meeting” with the aim to "Protect The British-European Rhodesian Community in Mugabe's Zimbabwe", rather than stating that it was being staged by the ZRRF with the aim of supporting everyone in that beleaguered land who were suffering under ZANU-PF tyranny. An official of the ZRRF subsequently wrote to one of our leading supporters in which he stated inter alia :-

“… the notice …. was actually taken from the far-right website Heritage & Destiny. This organization had absolutely no right to advertise this event and was advised to remove the notice as soon as we discovered the listing.

“The Fund unreservedly condemns the reported vile political ideology propounded which is understood by Heritage & Destiny and utterly repudiates any association with it whatsoever. We are a Christian humanitarian charity dedicated to helping all victims of injustice, whether they be African or European.”

Just what is wrong with this Cotterill character we therefore wonder? – for as we’ve stated in the past he seems to make unnecessary enemies wherever he goes. Hopefully somehow his disruptive antics will be put a stop to by one means or another before too long.




It was with great sadness that we learnt of the death of William Connell “Bill” Walker, the Conservative and Unionist MP for Perth and East Perthshire (later expanded to become North Tayside) from 1979 until 1997.

Bill Walker was born at Dundee in 1929 into relatively humble origins, but he eventually became a highly successful self-made man. After elementary schooling and a number of lowly jobs he completed his National Service in the RAF, a period of his life which he enjoyed tremendously. He specialized in gliding whilst serving in the RAF, and continued as a gliding instructor following his period of National Service, and retained his connection to the RAF Voluntary Reserve for the rest of his life. At the same time he embarked upon his greatly successful business career, which involved both the furniture retail trade in the Birmingham area and television production work, where he often appeared on the screen presenting his own programmes.

Politically he was a lifelong Conservative, and after an unsuccessful attempt to win Dundee East in 1974 was selected as the Conservative and Unionist candidate for the old Perth and East Perthshire constituency at the 1979 General Election, where he defeated the sitting SNP candidate easily. Having read the Treaty of Rome in full he realized that the EU (or the Common Market as it was then known) was far more than just an economic union, but was rather a political project aimed at creating a united federal Europe. He thus became an early and forthright EuroSceptic, who campaigned fearlessly for British withdrawal from the EU. Believing firmly in the free market entrepreneurial spirit and individual initiative he became a natural Thatcherite, and was also an uncompromising Unionist, both in the Scottish and Ulster contexts.

Bill Walker also accepted the position as a patron of the Powellite (but now sadly defunct) magazine Right Now! being one of few Conservative MPs to be prepared to do so, and attracting the odium of the left-wing of the Party for so doing. This was a brave move, and confirmed the true patriotic calibre of the man. He was also a man of strong moral conviction, who believed firmly in traditional family vales.

Bill Walker was the type man who used to dominate the Conservative and Unionist Party in Scotland, and made it such a strong force there. If the Party is fully to re-establish its ascendancy there then new leaders with the same attributes must arise there to replace the current unsatisfactory leadership. Our sincere condolences are extended to Bill Walker’s widow Mavis, his three daughters and his grandchildren.
