    Mark Collett Arrested for Threatening Nick Griffin

    The BNP has confirmed it has sacked its head of publicity after he was arrested on suspicion of threatening to kill the leader Nick Griffin.

    British National Party bosses have accused Mark Collett, 29, of trying to launch a coup against Mr Griffin.

    Mr Griffin confirmed that he had contacted the police claiming to have received death threats.

    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." (Continues)

    I feel saddened by this story. I am fully aware that the BNP stand no chance at the next election but a strong result with maybe a couple of MPs elected would send a strong message to Parliament that the indigenous population have had enough. This kind of publicity is the last thing we need right now. The recent fight with the Equalities Commission is taking its toll, which as we all know is exactly what they wanted.

    Collett was never good at anything and how he reached such a 'high up' position in the party is something I can't understand (and neither could many other people - there were rumors that he must have 'dirt' on Griffin, as the only explanation why he was still there). Others also said he was the anti's 'best friend' with his dumb comments and actions...

    Hopefully he won't heard from much anymore...

    Yes, there appeared to be always something shady about Mark Collett. He has evolved little from his young student days in terms of maturing his mode of presentation and behaviour, and would appear to have been more of a liability than a gain in the past few years, the idea that he be attracting fellow young people to the BNP didn't quite work out either. I doubt he'll be much of a loss to the BNP, tbh.

    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    I thought Collett's days in the BNP were numbered when he was caught running his mouth on that exposé a few years back. This type of publicity could not come at a worse time, but it is the party's own fault for giving such a loose cannon any type of influential position.

    Exactly my thoughts, Collett is far too extreme and immature to be anything but a liability anyway. I remember hearing lots of BNP members stating that they wouldn't vote for him when he was first selected; because of his past.
    I'm quite glad he's gone now, plus he would have never got elected anyway.

    I suspect that some of these gentlemen aren't great thinkers or philosophers, lol

    Interestingly, the BNP appear to be playing down the death threats on their website and focussing more on the "financial improprieties" that Mark Collett was (allegedly) involved in. Here is an excerpt ...

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The special meeting was given details — including a tape recording — of serious potential offenses committed by the former publicity director of the party, Mark Collett.

    Amongst the details revealed were serious issues with regard to the pricing of leaflets and a series of front companies which appear to have been set up with the intention of skimming off printing bills, and a short snippet of a recorded conversation with Mr Collett.

    The meeting decided unanimously to appoint a four man strong subcommittee to listen to the entire tape recording and report to the crowd on its full contents and implications.

    Councillor Michael Simpkins, a former RAF police officer, then reported back after a break that the tape was genuine and was of a conversation between Mr Collett and party treasurer David Hannam.

    Mr Simpkins said it was clear from the tape that the police would be able to investigate a number of potential crimes including threats to murder, assault, fraud and falsification of accounts.

    The meeting was informed that the police were in possession of a copy of the tape which had formed the basis of the arrest and subsequent questioning of Mr Collett last Thursday.

    The meeting agreed unanimously to leave the matter in the hands of the police.

    A message from former party manager Emma Colgate was read out by Mr Griffin in which she warned that fake Facebook and YouTube accounts were being set up in her name with the obvious intention of sowing confusion.

    All of these fake accounts should be reported as fraudulent so that they can be closed down, Ms Colgate said.

    My thoughts exactly, he was too cocky and immature. The BNP has a habit of losing just the right people.
