It was a massive victory for Gina Miller as the Supreme Court has given a ruling giving the Parliament the right to approve the start of Brexit.
Addressing journalists outside court after the judgment, Gina Miller thanked her supporters for the steadfastness.
“In Britain, we are lucky – we are fortunate to have the ability to voice legitimate concerns and views as part of a shared society” she said.
“I have therefore been shocked at the levels of personal abuse that I have received from many quarters over the last seven months for simply bringing and asking a legitimate question.”
“I sincerely hope that going forward people who stand in positions of power and profile are much quicker in condemning those who cross the lines of common decency and mutual respect.”
The UK Supreme Court ruled that Prime Minister Theresa May must get parliament’s nod before the commencement of Britain’s formal exit from the European Union based on Gina Miller’s stance. In doing so, she became a target for nationalists who claimed it was intended to stop Brexit.
“There is no doubt that Brexit is the most divisive issue of a generation, but this case was about the legal process, not politics” Miller said Tuesday.
She said the ruling went “to the very heart of our constitution”, confirming that “only parliament can grant rights to the British people and only parliament can take them away”.
The government is now expected to bring forward emergency legislation authorising it to trigger Article 50–the EU mechanism starting Brexit negotiations–by the end of March.
