Miller campaign calls for an end to the Brexit ‘chaos’
Gina Miller has launched a campaign to end the division and anxiety over Brexit with a new fact-checking website. Speaking at the launch event in the leave heartland of Dover yesterday, Miller said she hoped the End the Chaos website (endthechaos.co.uk) and a series of nationwide events would act as a foil to the false claims and counter-claims that characterised the EU referendum in 2016.
Miller, right, said her website would be opensource and a transparent platform for councils, businesses and academics who wanted to get their impact studies seen by the public.
“If it’s not getting into newspapers and not getting into government conversations, it will be on our site and we will push it out very proactively,” she said.
Miller said Brexit was poisoning the nation and people just wanted to hear “unspun” facts.
“We aim to provide a public service, a trusted source of information from which people can decide for themselves what they think and want for themselves and our country,” she said.
Miller, a finance industry professional, took the government to the supreme court to challenge its authority to leave the EU without a parliamentary vote. She has ruled out going into formal politics after speculation that she might be interested in running to succeed Vince Cable as Liberal Democrat leader.
Miller told supporters in Dover town hall that it would be “grotesque” if the UK ended up “disintegrating” as an “unintended consequence” of Brexit without voters’ support, and called the current state of affairs “Brex-suicide”.
