A British National Party councillor has strongly denied making a gay porn film.

The Evening Standard claims to have a copy of a film produced and directed by Richard Barnbrook described as “Marxist gay cinema from conceptual artist Barnbrook.”

He is the London co-ordinator of the BNP, which has promised to remove homosexuality from society, deeming it ‘wrong and unhealthy for any community.”

The film, HMS Discovery, A Love Story, contains scenes of men undressing and touching each other, coupled with nudity and sexual activits, the paper claims.

The accompanying commentary in the film says, “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.

Mr Barnbrook, who won one of the 11 BNP seats in Barking and Dagenham local elections last week, told the Evening Standard, “It was an art film, not a bloody porn film.

“The only nudity in it is a couple of guys running in a river.

“This was done when I was a student. It was part of my extra education, part of my studies and that was it.

“Anything to do with my past politics or my past work, I am not interested in commenting on.

“This was sometime back in the mid-80s.”
