Mark Collett makes Queen's evidence threat

In January 2006 Collett threatened to turn Queen’s evidence against Nick Griffin at the first 'Free Speech Trial' if Griffin made him apologise to the then Head of BNP Security Warren Bennett for threatening to have him killed.

Nick Griffin now laughs it off and says it was because Collett was under pressure at the time, but it lead to Mr Bennett and his security team quitting on the eve of the trial.

Martin Reynolds was one of the witnesses in the room and though he’ll tell you in private that Mark Collett meant his threat he refuses so say so publicly.

Why does Nick Griffin defend a man who threatened to lie about him in court just so he wouldn’t have to apologise to somebody else?
