Anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller has admitted defeat, but said Remainers’ next battleground will be to campaign to make the UK’s exit from the EU as soft as possible.
Businesswoman Gina Miller — who launched legal action against Prime Minister Boris Johnson for suspending parliament earlier this year — admitted defeat as the Conservatives won an 80-seat majority in the House of Commons last week.
She told the BBC: “This is very much a decisive win for the Conservatives, and very much gives them a mandate to pass their deal which I think will happen very quickly.
“I think the Withdrawal Agreement will go through by Christmas. And then it’s law, and it’s ratified in January.
“Once that bill is passed, it’s passed. We have got nowhere else to go.”
As Breitbart London reported Monday, passing the withdrawal agreement and leaving the EU by January 31st, 2020, is not the end but the beginning of another process. The UK will then be in an 11-month transition period with the EU where negotiators will work on a trade agreement for a future relationship. The UK will not leave EU institutions properly until the end of that time on December 31st, 2020.
