Dispatches reporter David Modell films a remarkable six months spent in the questionable company of Mark Collett, leader of the youth wing of the British National Party, and reveals the true nature of a party trying to reinvent itself and broaden its appeal. A rising star of the party, Collet reveals to Modell his deeply held Nazi sympathies. This despite the party’s claim it no longer has any association with Nazism.

It’s clear why the BNP want intelligent young men like Mark, a university graduate. BNP leader Nick Griffin tells Dispatches that Collett is a potential leader of the party. But Modell is interested in trying to determine what motivates a bright young man to throw in his lot with a party which will make him reviled in public.

Modell has little in common with his subject and finds himself taking an exception to some of Collett’s interests and occupations – which range through rabid anti-Semitism (’Jews aren’t white’) to explaining how he likes to “break” people, in particular his ex girlfriend.

    Mark Collett is a Nazi sympathizer.. I can’t believe his party didn’t accept his resignation.. I wonder why this is..

    • shahid

      I didn’t have a problem with Mark’s views. I have a problem with people telling other people how they should think. No. I don’t believe all of his viewpoints, but if I was a poor white, I would want someone to advocate for me like other groups have advocates. Its nothing wrong with being white.

  • loki

    the undercover rat is a jew bastard with a agenda and its obvious that this is a piece made to to smear the BNP and so what if he is nazi and proud.
    the reporter is a zionist jew.

    • Bryan

      Right, because it’s not easy to make hatred and racism look bad.

  • Vik

    He is right about one thing though, racist attacks against white people are covered up, denied and outright lied about. If two white men attack an asian man, it’s racism, if 2 asian men attack a white man it’s a random attack. I speak from personal experience. Racism works both ways.

  • John

    I think what the journalist did was a horrible thing. Regardless of what Mark Collett is; in my opinion it was a dishonest way of betraying his trust and even worse than that jeopardising his career and position within and outside of the Party.

    • Dina

      Please reconsider the learned position you are taking. If it takes betraying the trust of one (dangerous) individual in order to bring out the truth behind their political mask, it is well worth it. This is why people need journalists to do this. If no one seeks the truth, we are simply following political propaganda, opinionated “facts” and twisted agendas the way political leaders WANT us to see them. In the face of power, few men remain with only good intentions. I think it is horrible that people do not strive to be led by honest people, in the direction that they want, and instead would let a neonazi’s reputation and career take a higher place morally than what is really going on..

    After reading this I thought it was really enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this article together. Once again I discover myself spending far too enough time both reading through and leaving comments. However so what, it had been nonetheless worthwhile!

  • Grimwald

    The problem is bigotry and racism is never the answer. You alienate supporters. There’s a difference between believing in a national unified country than believing in a white, national unified country. What about all the racial minorities that buy into British idealisms and policies? Ones that don’t want Shuria law, unfair or overcompensating welfare laws. Most of those people are working class anyways.

    True equality – regardless of sex, economic status, race, religion is what all governments should enforce.

  • pocky

    wow quite revealing, I haven’t heard anything about the BNP party before, just that they were a bit mad. I’m not actually sure if that type of journalism is legal, but it certainly makes for interesting viewing. Kind of silly for someone to trust a person who is making a documentary anyway… My views are that people of all race and religion deserve the same treatment, but that as he calls them “non-whites” do abuse the race card to get things that other poor families in the area do not get. I think everyone needs to stop being held captive by Political Correctness gone mad, and treat both white and black the same.

  • Jam

    Yes, I think that BNP is generally racist and I’d never vote for it. However, what the journalist did was wrong too… how is this legal? Surely you can’t just film someone without them knowing and publish it on tv? Unless he’d signed some kind of contract first which allowed the cameras to film at any time.

  • Kate

    It’s completely legal to record someone. It’s ridiculous to think that there is anything wrong with that. He had to secretly record him to show that he was in fact a racist and neo-Nazi despite the fact that he lied and claimed he isn’t.

    Collett seems to be some kind of sociopath. Not well at all. And definitely dangerous. Not in that I think he could lead anybody – only uneducated, slow people. More so that I can imagine him attacking a minority family in their homes or something. He definitely seems the type. Good on the journalist for revealing him to the world. People can now watch out for him and keep their kids away from him.

  • Tamsin

    I do not support the BNP in any way, and based on the image I’ve always had of that party I expected him to be a lower-class, rough yob. I was surprised that he seemed intelligent, articulate and well-spoken. In front of the public he appeared quite arrogant but that’s not really unique amongst politicians. It is true that racism goes both ways but the BNP’s policies are narrow minded and will not solve the problem. Mark Collett’s intelligence could be put to a much better use than this.

    • Mike Horn

      I say shoot him. We have enough smart people in the world.

  • Till

    There are two competing interests involved here; the privacy of the individual, and the public interest to know about the political views of political figure, especially when they contrast with what the person says in public. Clearly, in this case, the second interest is more important, and the documentary was both legal and legitimate. It’s almost 10 years old now, and Mark Collett’s career in the BNP has been fascinating. The fact that they don’t seem to have found anyone better is actually quite a relief.

  • Tad Nathaniel

    What the journalist did was legal, yes. But legitimate, no !!! Legal, because there’s doesn’t seem to be a law in England against what the reporter did. Nonetheless, the interviewer’s underhanded tactics were more disturbing than what the BNP advocates (if you’re willing to take them at face value).

    Whether that kid and his buddies are Nazi’s or not, I really don’t know or even care. I do, however, respect and support anyone or any party that is against giving MY TAX DOLLARS to those who call themselves “less fortunate” or “underprivileged”. Since when has the West become Socialist? Why do we keep telling the world to come where we live and lean on us, if life is hard in their homeland? Life is just as hard for me and my family, and we don’t get any handouts. We are just not eligible. I sometimes wish we were immigrants.

    The shame in all this is that the only people who address these issues are always linked to Hitler by chance or by design, or simply by their own folly. I only wish that an upstanding political party with a proven track record will speak up for me someday. But guess what. I’m not counting on that to happen anytime soon.

    • Punksmanga

      blame governments, they give out money like candy, weather honestly underprivileged or not, a country like the UK doesnt want to be rated “third world” Imagine what the american’s would think, so yeah they enjoy having those sorts around, who they’ll behave socialist like to, its not like its their money their using…..its yours and your too dumb to locate the source of the problem.

  • Frontconan

    Yes, German nazis was nothing but
    whitetrash unintelligent evil demons. They just happened by
    coincidence to create the strongest market economy and welfare state
    and public sector ever in Europe during their time. They just
    happened to create to strongest and most advanced military force
    ever. From ashes and brutal poverty, humiliating and starvation after
    the first world war the just happened to build the most effective and
    richest superpower mankind have ever seen in a couple of years. They
    just happened to be the first with campaign against breast cancer for
    women, social security net for single parent mothers, the first to
    establish laws against animal cruelty, laws for preservation and
    protection for the environment. The first state to encourage to a
    healthy lifestyle for the citizens, erased poverty and
    unemployment. Even to this day the most complicated space technology
    is based upon what German scientist discovered during the thirties
    and forties. And so goes for road building, cars, high-tech industry
    and administration and so on and on, the list is endless. Whitetrash
    and evil German nazis are quite remarkable I must say…

    • Planet Piss

      Look, so I see your point here:  The nazi government accomplished many great things.  I would be ALL FOR the nazi party/nationalists, however all of the building-up of your ideas goes right out the window, because at the heart of your beliefs are racial superiority.  I understand that racism goes both ways.  But you have to understand that you CANNOT simply make generalizations about ANY group.  Whether that is ethnic, racial, national, gender, religious, sexual preference, etc…

       NASCAR has done a lot for the automotive, industrial, and countless other industries of the US too, but it is still supported by a ton of racist backward worthless pieces of trash. Like Nazi’s

    how the HELL is this guy making a better living than me, found the dickheads facebook anyway, most of the ignorant, disgusting comments on it, is just saying how lazy ‘blacks’ are, with his little minions feeding his bullshit. Makes me sick how he can be out in a programme like that having such a fucking small mind and now hes posing like a fucking TWAT in front of his ‘new car’ (probably rented or his hot ass sister) with the fucking door open on it like its some sort of fucking bugatti, is this kid serious?!

    They deny and they deny but in the end, all members of the BNP share the same racist view! The stupidity of some of the statements this guy was making just amazes me. Greedy Britain can only blame itself for its problems.
