5 Star's Executive Board

John Rees-Evans

Party Leader

John Rees-Evans, Party LeaderFor many, many years – long before he understood the first thing about politics – John’s vision has been to help in whatever way opportunity afforded, to turn our nation from its present wrong course towards a beautiful, righteous, prosperous, proud, free and independent future.

JRE envisages a Britain in which the power of a corrupt, usurping élite is wrested away from our present political class and handed to the people – those that our ancient and democratic Constitution mandates are the rightful possessors of that power.
