Channel 4 on the British National Party

I had forgotten that Channel 4 had produced a fine documentary on the BNP in 2002.

It is still relevant, Young, Nazi and Proud, isn’t available on their site at the moment, but can be found across the web, including here.

Mark Collett was a chairman of the Young BNP and Director of Publicity for the BNP, so he was not on the fringes of the party rather at its very heart.

Searchlight had a good piece on Collett and the BNP:

“The man tipped to become the next leader of the British National Party has admitted he is a nazi sympathiser and is inspired by images of German nazis “sieg heiling” in the streets.

Mark Collett, leader of the Young BNP and a member of the party’s ruling Advisory Council, made the admission to Channel Four last month. In a revealing documentary, he boasted of his support for Hitler’s Germany, said he would prefer to live in 1930s Germany than in many cities of northern England today and declared that he could not understand why people should find images of German soldiers giving nazi salutes upsetting.”

In the BNP, he’s not alone.
