Brexit campaigners have slammed "disgusting" leaflets created by a satirical group which mock murdered Fusilier Lee Rigby.

The leaflets, produced by 'satirists' Al-Zebabist Nation of OOOG, cruelly mock the soldier, quoting him as saying: "Gobble gobble leave the EU gobble gobble gobble."

The 25-year-old was brutally murdered by Islamist extremists Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale near the barracks in Woolwich in 2013.

Rigby's family have stressed on several occasions in the past that they do not want far right groups to use him as a campaigning tool.

UKIP Thanet, LEAVE.EU and GetBritainOut were described as "in partnership" with the party in the leaflets, distributed in Thanet, Kent.

All three organisations have dismissed any relationship with the party, with LEAVE.EU describing the pamphlets as "absolutely disgusting" and UKIP branding them "offensive".

The posters created by the Al-Zebabist Nation of OOOG.

LEAVE.EU spokesman Jordan Ryan said: "We are quite shocked at this obviously disgusting leaflet and have absolutely nothing to do with it.

"We would never use disgusting imagery such as this and it is difficult to tell if this is just someone playing a vile joke.

"It has not been done with our permission and anything we produce has to have a publisher's name and contact number on, which this doesn't."

The leader, who refers to himself as Prophet Zebadiah Abu Obadiah, the Al-Zebabist Nation of OOOG, came last when taking on Nigel Farage in the 2015 South Thanet general election, with just 30 votes.

The party has been described as "satirical" and "weird" in the past.


UKIP South Thanet chairman Martyn Heale said: "It is absolutely nothing to do with us.

"Anyone with any sense will realise it's the usual claptrap. Quite frankly I find it offensive.

"They have no right to use our party logo and we will speak to them and advise them to withdraw any references they have to do with UKIP.

"They may have their own reasons for wanting to leave the EU but we want nothing to do with them."

The Apostle Khalid Zulu Shabazz, of The Al-Zebabist Nation of OOOG, claimed any offence was "misplaced" and "unjustified".

He said: "Our allies in UKIP, Leave.EU and Get Britain Out have been closely involved in every phase of this campaign - from deciding on content and layout to advising on distribution methods."

When asked about the Lee Rigby image, he said: "The quote from Lee Rigby comes directly from a recent conversation with the Prophet Zebadiah Abu Obadiah, that took place in the realms of Zell.

"Our allies in UKIP were also very keen we use the quote from Dr Rigby, pointing to the curious authority attributed to him by the British people."

Britain First previously came under fire for using Lee on social media and on ballot papers.
