Gina Miller on Brexit: 'there must be another vote'

BREXIT: Gina Miller says there must be another vote on Brexit

Gina Miller, lead claimant in the case challenging the British government’s ability to implement Britain’s exit from the European Union without Parliament’s final approval, has called for another vote on Brexit.

The philanthropist’s desire for another vote has been ignited by the revelations made by Shahmir Sanni, the former BeLeave treasurer.

Writing in The Guardian, Miller said: “As a transparency campaigner for more than 10 years, I have long had a sense that something was not quite right about the EU referendum.

“I warned back in November 2017 that the leave campaign seemed to be awash with dark money that may have circumvented rules designed to uphold the integrity of our democratic process.”

Sanni has claimed that £625,000 was donated by Vote Leave to his pro-Brexit referendum campaign organisation, which was supposedly independent, and from there channelled into a digital services firm with connections to Cambridge Analytica, the firm at the centre of the Facebook data scandal.

Miller, co-founder of investment manager SCM Direct, wrote: “I am now even more convinced that there must be a people’s vote on the Brexit deal, including an option to remain, or remain voters will have good reason to shout foul play.”
