Remain campaigner Gina Miller, who rose to prominence after winning a legal challenge against the Prime Minister on Article 50, has threatened a new court case against ministers over the deal with the DUP to spend an extra £1billion in Northern Ireland.
She claims the government failed to follow the proper process when it signed a confidence and supply deal with the Ulster party, claiming there should have been a Commons vote.
The campaigner sent a letter to ministers last year warning she would contest any payments without a vote.
On Sunday, Ms Miller told ITV’s Robert Peston she had learned two chunks of cash have been allocated to Northern Ireland without a decision by MPs.
I wonder why Ms Miller never challenged Gordon Brown’s signing of the Lisbon Treaty without holding a referendum first. What about all the laws that the EU passed – will she be doing something about that because our Parliament didn’t have a vote on them either?
Originally she demanded Parliament ratify Brexit, then when they did she changed her mind and said she’d lost faith in them, and that the people should be asked to ratify the final deal in the form of a referendum.
The aim here is not to be open and fair but to bring about the collapse of the government and secure a second EU referendum. It would seem that her concerns are not for the good of ordinary people.
