Shock claim: GINA MILLER is 'the woman who SAVED Brexit'

ARCH-Remainer Gina Miller might have inadvertently helped save Brexit as it is only thanks to her battle for a "meaningful vote" in Parliament at the end of the negotiations that MPs will have the opportunity to vote down Theresa May's Brexit agreement.

Brexiteers might have to thank the prominent anti-Brexit campaigner for the opportunity to stand against Theresa May's Brexit agreement as her battle for Parliament to have the final say on the agreement gives them the chance to object to the Prime Minister's draft deal reached with Brussels on Wednesday. The active campaigner won a case in early 2017 that provided the UK Government would not have the right to decide on the future relationship between the UK and the EU without Parliament's consent.

Sutton Coldfield Town Councillor Manish Puri tweeted: "So if it wasn't for Gina Miller... a meaningful vote in Parliament Theresa May could have rubber-stamped this dog's breakfast of a Withdrawal Agreement without another thought."

One wrote: "I still think Gina Miller scored a massive own goal by going to court to get parliament to vote for Article 50.

"I don't think parliament would vote to revoke it right now whereas if the Government had triggered it, they could revoke it without parliament."

And another: "Amazing to think that without Gina Miller's court case forcing Parliament to have a meaningful vote we would all be waking up this morning having to stomach Theresa May's #BrexitDogsDinner as a done deal."
