Gina Miller is absolutely correct to have brought the court case that challenged Theresa May’s assertion that the Royal Prerogative and bypassing Parliament would be legally and morally the right path to the triggering of Article 50.
The death threats emanating from some from the Leave campaign are illegal, immoral and utterly deplorable in a democratic society and must be condemned by the Prime Minister. Or, she would be condoning similar threats to herself, which it is notable have never occurred.
We support Gina Miller’s contention that it is about remain and reform, that the UK has wounded its strength in Europe when we actually have a lot of power and influence as a reforming member, however being a departing member cripples our voice. A political strategy has to be long-term. Theresa May has suffered the same error of method that her predecessor did, short term thinking and trying to force a result rather than taking control after discussion and agreement. Instead, she has now to deal with those who would disagree because they were not consulted in the first place.
Unfortunately, the Opposition thinks that making it about “worker’s rights” will buy them votes. That is only a small part of the picture. The judges of this case have been a clearer voice of why Parliament has to examine this properly.
