Newly elected British National Party councillor Richard Barnbrook admits he helped direct HMS Discovery: A Love Story which allegedly includes “long scenes of men undressing and fondling each other, including full-frontal nudity…a naked man apparently performing a sex act on another…[and] repeated scenes of flagellation in which a group of semi-naked men apparently whip a fourth semi-naked man,” but says it wasn’t a “gay porn” film.
The BNP has “has promised to remove homosexuality from society, deeming it ‘wrong and unhealthy for any community,'” according to the UK’s Pink News.
Pink News also reports on an accompanying commentary to the film, which Barnbrook says was done when he was a student in the 80’s: “A harsh scowl masks your smile, but weakens when your nakedness inspires. It bares you like a foreskin’s folds … you will make of yourself a beauty, hard as rusting trucks and slag. Fists in a toilet that smells of piss … open-mouthed, I shall dream of altar-boys.”
Yet Barnbrook, who won his seat in the BNP, the foremost right-wing political party in Britain, just last week, stood by his claims: “It was an art film, end of story. It was not a bloody porn film.”
