Midland BNP candidate’s tribute to Nazi terrorist • Wednesday April 30, 2003

Sunday Mercury (England), Apr. 27, 2003

A Midland British National Party election candidate changed his name as an homage to an American Nazi terrorist he idolised, the Sunday Mercury can reveal.

Mark Payne, 35, changed his name by deed poll to Mark Matthews to celebrate his Nazi hero Robert J Matthews after the white supremacist was shot dead by the FBI in 1984.

Mr Payne, who is set to contest Coventry’s Woodlands ward, also runs an extreme right-wing book club from his small suburban home in the predominantly Asian area of Radford in the city.

According to anti-fascist magazine Searchlight, The 14 Words UK produces racist literature urging people to fight for white rights.

The 14 words that gave the company its name are: ‘We must ensure a future for the white race and also for our children.’

It also distributes videos including interviews with jailed American terrorist David Lane and members of Robert Matthews white supremacy group called The Order.

Robert Matthews was a leading right-wing intellect who urged his supporters to spark a race war in the United States.

His numerous works inspired people like the Brixton nailbomber David Copeland and his message was preached by the paramilitary racist group Combat 18.

Matthews was eventually shot to death by FBI agents on an island of Washington state in 1984.

A spokesman for Searchlight said: ‘Mark Payne is a sinister character who is extreme in his right wing views even for the BNP.

‘They were reluctant to have him but the party was desperate for election candidates.’
