  • The return of Phil Burbidge

    Back in 1957, Candour and LEL stalwart Philip Burbidge gained massive publicity of our cause when he slapped Lord Altrincham for insulting the Queen.

    It appears as though Phil is returning from the dead to star in the BBC's The Crown, where he will do it all again. Details from the Radio Times are here. The Radio Times report's the slap as a "punch", and we will be contacted the RT regarding this.

    Phil can be seen on this news report from Pathe News.

    Colin Todd suffered an accident recently, and is now in hospital with several broken ribs. Rob Black is suffering with some personal circumstances at the moment, so all in all we are having a poor run of luck.

    Rest assured that Candour will return. Please bear with us. We will return in 2018.

  • Christmas Appeal

    As we approach Christmas, please do not forget our folk trapped in what is now "Zimbabwe". Please support the Zimbabwe Pensioner Support Fund .

    "The situation in Zimbabwe for the pensioners has not changed for the better. The main change that has taken place is that the shops are now quite well stocked compared to some years ago when the shops were empty.

    When the Zimbabwe dollar collapsed 4 years ago the Zimbabwe Government started to use the US $ as the official currency. What this meant was that any person who had Zimbabwe dollars was left with worthless paper. The people that had trillions in the banks or even in their homes were also left with nothing. There has never been any compensation issued by the banks or government to any of the pensioners.

    The one good thing that came out of the Zimbabwe dollar collapsing was that every person that was working was now paid in US $ or SA Rands. For the first time EVER it was no longer ILLEAGLE to have foreign currency in your possession. For a few months shops selling food would only accepting foreign currency and would not sell you any food if you were going to pay with Zimbabwe dollar. Now the situation had changed, all people working were being paid in forex and shops were opening up in all the towns. They are well stocked but 50 to 100% more expensive than the South African shops. This all sounds good BUT there is another side to this story.

    Some of the pensioners were receiving pensions in Zimbabwe dollars. With the collapse of the Zimbabwe dollar this segment of the population were left with NOTHING. If they had money in the bank it was wiped out and they were no longer receiving pensions. The situation for the pensioners is now worse than ever. Some of the pensioners have started to receive pensions paid in US $. Some of the pensioners are receiving as little as 13 US $ a month. I was speaking to a pensioner in Kadoma. Ann was crying and I asked her what the problem was. This is what she had to say. I get a pension of 40 US $ a month from Old Mutual. The bank takes 2 US $ , my rent is 35 US $ so that leaves me with 3 US $ for food. This is a fairly common situation that I come across. There is of cause the very small percentage of pensioners that are well supported by their children.

    Since 2000, due to hyperinflation and the collapse of the economy in Zimbabwe the pensioners in Zimbabwe's old age homes have been finding it more and more difficult to survive. With the era of farm invasions and the disintegration of the Zimbabwe economy, pensions and savings have been wiped out and most pensioners have been left totally destitute and reliant on outside support. Government and foreign food agencies are not supplying their basic needs and thus most were facing starvation unless someone came to their aid.

    In 2002, the Zimbabwe Pensioner Supporters Fund came into being with the aim of providing basic essential food to destitute pensioners in Zimbabwe old age homes, to enable them to survive.

    What started off as a single bakkie taking up relief to a few people in one home, has now grown to three large trucks taking up between 17 - 20 tons of foodstuff every 8 weeks and feeding over 1600 pensioners in more than 28 old age homes throughout Zimbabwe.

    The fund provides an apple box of basic essentials to each pensioner every 8 weeks. In addition, basic, non-prescription medicine, walking aids, wheel chairs and clothing are also provided.

    It is not an exaggeration to say that without this essential support many would have starved to death.

    As the support has grown, the fund has been able to take on more and more homes and is able to assist more pensioners.

    The fund's aim is to meet the needs of the pensioners throughout Zimbabwe who are not receiving support, but this is dependent on the support of YOU, the public.

    The fund is a registered non-profit organisation and other than a few full time workers, the packing, loading and delivery of parcels to Zimbabwe is carried out by volunteers who receive no remuneration for their services.

    The fund is totally reliant on donations from the public in order to sustain its operations. Donations such as foodstuffs, clothing, fuel, tyres, truck maintenance and even the trucks themselves have been donated to keep the operations going."

  • 2017 John Tyndall Memorial Meeting, Friday 6th October, Preston

    A message about this years meeting from Heritage and Destiny magazine.

    "This year’s (second) John Tyndall Memorial meeting is being organized by Heritage and Destiny magazine and will be held in Preston, Lancashire on Friday October 6th at 1pm. If you wish to attend please call our office number – 07833 677484 – for full details and directions to the venue (which will be in Preston City centre).

    Doors open at 12 noon and meeting will start at 1pm prompt. However, can you please aim to get to Preston for between 11.30am – 12 noon as we will have two re-direction points (one for those coming by car and the other for those using public transport) in operation and we want to get everybody to the meeting venue in plenty of time.

    There will be literature/merchandise tables from a number of different nationalist groups at the meeting. If you or your group would like a free merchandise table to sell your wares at the meeting please contact us ASAP as space is now very limited.

    We also need more raffle prizes, so if you have anything you can donate to the raffle (or auction) please let us know – or just bring it along on the day.

    There will be a buffet (including vegetarian); cash-bar; raffle (with some great prizes), auction and much more. So make sure you, your family and friends are free Friday October 6th and get yourselves over to Preston!

    Those of you are coming by train/coach, please book up well in advance, or else all the cheap seats will be gone. Likewise if you need overnight accommodation in Preston, book now to get the best deals (call our office for advice if need be). We understand that a number of meeting attendees are staying in nearby Blackpool this year, where there is a far greater choice of B&B and hotel accommodation, so you may want to bare that in mind. If you are flying in the nearest airports are Manchester and Liverpool, both have direct trains to Preston.

    There will be two socials – one on the evening of Thursday 5th for those arriving the day before – and one after the meeting has finished on the Friday evening. We have a great venue, which serves real ales and good food at very reasonable prices.

    If for whatever reason, you can’t attend the meeting, but would like to send a donation, to help with the meeting costs instead, that would be great. Please send cheques or postal/money orders (made payable to Heritage and Destiny) to – H&D 40 Birkett Drive, Preston, PR2 6HE, or via PayPal to – englandfirstparty@yahoo.com

    Thank you all once again for your fantastic support and we look forward to seeing and meeting as many of you fellow-nationalists as possible in Preston on Friday October 6th."
