Gina Miller Poking her Nose in again !!
So, Arch Remainer, Gina Miller says she has now changed her mind over a second Referendum on Brexiit. When she was previously accused that this was her sole intention, she flatly denied it, her excuse every time was...." I am in no way trying to subvert the will of the people and turn back the result of the Referendum," arguing instead she campaigns to ensure democratic principles around "How we leave the EU".
Now, however, this interfering nobody wishing a second stab of 15 minutes of fame, no doubt backed by Remainers with deep pockets, as she reportedly was to the tune of tens of thousands of pounds by Richard Branson, another Arch Remainer, in her original campaign in the Supreme court - now says that she is convinced a second Referendum should take place on the final deal and is preparing a new legal challenge in the Supreme Court, this time using The European Union 2011 Act as a defence, because in her words " The people should decide on whether to accept the final deal, refuse the final deal or remain in the EU" Why?........because she says she does not like the approach of the Government and its evacuation tactics from the EU!
Some Legal minds are saying that any withdrawal agreement and any future trade agreement, will effectively replace the existing treaties - and therefore under the terms of the 2011 Act, this will require another Referendum.
Other Legal minds state however, that the EU 2011 Act does not appy to a new set of arrangements between the UK and the EU. They also state that even if true, the 2011 Act created a requirement for a second Referendum, which could be avoided by repealing the Act.
That would mean both Houses of Parliament voting to repeal the Act, but it need not necessarily be particularly difficult.
Or could it?
These questions would be tested in a Court of Law.
Well, we can guess whose side most Judges are on, can't we? They all have vested interests in the EU in one way or another. I wonder what a poll would reveal if taken, solely by Judges,,, Remain or Leave? I would certainly place a bet on that one!*
Is it any wonder many Leavers loathe this self-proclaiming poster girl for Remain, who is quite adept at the pretence of democracy when it is she herself who is eroding our democracy by interfering in a legitimate vote taken by the people of this country.
