The woman who forced Theresa May to seek the Parliament’s authorization before triggering Article 50 is now taking the next step against “a hard Brexit.”
As soon as Theresa May called the June 8 snap elections, Gina Miller began a crowdfunding campaign to encourage “tactical voting” that will ensure the Parliament can reject a Brexit deal if that proves detrimental to the U.K’s national interests.
“If the deal the next government negotiates doesn’t match up to our current terms, MPs should do what’s best for Britain and reject it. We will be asking MPs to pledge to keep an open mind and not be bullied into giving the next government a blank cheque for the final deal,” Miller told The Guardian.
That is the “Best for Britain” campaign.
Within less than 48 hours the campaign raised £175,045 pounds or more than €210,000. The objective is to support candidates across the political spectrum that campaign against “any deal,” pledging support for a free vote on the Brexit deal.
A similar crowdfunding effort by another legal activist, Jolyon Maugham, launched a legal case to ensure that Brexit remains a reversible process, should the balance of power change in the British Parliament. According to the European Parliament, the process is reversible, although the British Prime Minister insists it is not.
