A far-right figure who identifies himself as a Rebel Media writer and researcher is helping run the campaign of the “extreme” anti-Islam activist seeking to lead the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP).
Jack Buckby has been working for The Rebel’s U.K. operation since early July, writing teleprompter scripts and fundraising emails at the same time that he has been helping steer the leadership campaign of Anne Marie Waters, the bookies’ favourite to win the UKIP leadership contest concluding at the end of the month. Other current and former Rebel personalities have also been actively aiding the campaign by Waters, a co-founder of Pegida UK, about whom The Times has asked “Is Anne Marie Waters too extreme even for Ukip?” and who the New Statesman called “too extreme for Nigel Farage.”
