Internal debates BNP-style

The BNP have sacked their head of publicity, Mark Collett, after he alleged made death threats against Nick Griffin. There have been rumours about a possible coup within the BNP for some time now, and it is thought that Mr. Collett was amongst those who was unhappy with the current leadership, and his support for the Nazis had been damaging the BNP’s attempts to rebrand themselves. He has also been arrested:

Humberside Police said a man had been arrested “on suspicion of making threats to kill” and later bailed. In a statement, police said: “A 29-year-old man was arrested on Thursday 1 April on suspicion of making threats to kill.

“He was interviewed by Humberside Police detectives and has been released on police bail pending further inquiries. This investigation was initiated as a result of a complaint by a member of the British National Party and inquiries are ongoing.”

    You were expecting witty rhetoric?

    Or pistols at dawn.

    Feeling slightly happier than I was before hearing this. On the whole this is good news. The BNP is a snake-pit? Not a surprise, but nice to have it evidenced and open. Again.

    Actulol. See, this is how REAL MEN ‘stage a coup’, not like those arch-Blairites. ;-)

    Seriously though, there is something of the deeply ironic here. A BNP member has pretty much been arrested for… being a BNP member.

    Have I been spam filtered?

    What surprisingly good timing by the BNP! I suppose that’s what you employ heads of publicity for :-)

    perhaps the part of their PR messaging strategy on being the victim has gone awry somewhat

    Hahaha Douglas.

    Heh KJB.

    It is a happy thread.

    Persephone:

    Nick Griffin was the victim in this case.

    On the documentary “Young, Nazi, and Proud” (C4, 2002) Collett declared his admiration for Adolf Hitler and UDA terrorist Johnny Adair, and has described gay men as “AIDS Monkeys”, “bum bandits” and “faggots” (Re:Brand, C4, 2002). How’s Collett’s public image supposed to be better than that of grotesque Griffin’s?

    Yakoub,

    I think you have answered your own question.

    Rumbold @8

    Yeah I know. My cryptic comment meant that they (BNP/Collett) had confused themselves over being victims in that rather than outsiders victimising them the victimisation came from within
