John Rees-Evans has been involved in the Welsh arm of UKIP for some time, working behind the scenes and producing many of their party political broadcasts. He is here in Cumbria on Friday 18th November. John is a former Parachute Regiment soldier from a fairly normal family background. He has lived and worked all over the world and one of his interests is his company Team Kilimanjaro which runs climbing expeditions. He resides in the Rhondda with his wife and children.
John believes in giving power to UKIP membership through direct democracy – harnessing the members to drive and approve policies for UKIP, rather than have the leadership dictate to us what policies they want.
As well as supporting all the key UKIP manifesto policies, he also believes passionately in free speech, liberty of conscience and vastly reducing the power of the controlling nanny state.
He recognised that the organised hustings was not going to areas that he wanted to reach, which is why he has organised his own tour.
