Gina Miller caught out after plea to Brits 'who want a say' to vote – 'Irony lost on her'

0


Gina Miller faced a brutal response following her plea to Britons to register to vote ahead of the general election earlier this week. Writing on Tuesday, Gina Miller, who won a High Court case against the Government over the involvement of Parliament in Britain’s departure from the bloc, made the last ditch bid to potential voters. She wrote: “Many have fought, and even died for our freedom to vote.

“It is your right to have a say in the kind of country we will be – if you have not #Register2vote TONIGHT AT 11:59PM IS THE DEADLINE.

“Make sure friends and family over 18 are also registered.”

But, Brexit Party MEP, Christina Jordan delivered a brutal reply to Ms Miller.

She wrote: “The irony of her tweet seems lost on her…”

Despite Britain voting to leave the European Union in this historic 2016 referendum, Ms Miller has repeatedly launched attempts through the courts to try to tie the hands of the Government.

Ms Miller has also set up a tactical voting website to try to stop Boris Johnson from securing a majority in the election, as he fights to deliver his withdrawal agreement.

Miller told the Observer: “If we don’t tactical vote, what we will end up with is a Tory majority that is going to pursue a Brexit plan that is no longer theoretical.

“It is not as though we don’t know what is going to happen. We know the direction of travel.

“If you look through the withdrawal agreement, it significantly shifts accountability. Executive power increases, while parliamentary scrutiny decreases.”

Writing on the Remain United website, Ms Miller adds: “I know how difficult it may feel to be ‘lending’ your vote to a party that you might never normally vote for – in short, to vote with what has been called ‘a clothes peg on your nose’.

“But let’s be clear: this will be unlike any normal peacetime General Election. The stakes for our country, your family and you have rarely been higher.

“This is your moment to take control, to be strong and stand up and be counted.”

It comes following a critical poll which found Mr Johnson is on track to secure a huge majority in the 2019 general election.

The constituency-by-constituency estimate by YouGov, published in The Times, indicates that if the election was held on Thursday, the Conservative Party would win 359 seats, 42 more than they took in 2017.

It would also take 43 percent of the vote, and in number of seats this would be its best performance since 1987.

Labour, meanwhile, is set to lose 51 seats, falling from 262 seats in 2017 to 211 now, and taking 32 percent of the vote, a nine percentage point decrease.

The poll also suggests none of the candidates who switched to the Lib Dems in recent months will win in their constituencies.

Chris Curtis, political research manager at YouGov, said the current analysis shows the Tories have a “comfortable majority”, with seats coming their way at the expense of Labour in the North and Midlands.

He said: “As expected, the key thing deciding the extent to which each of these seats is moving against Labour are how that seat voted in the European Union referendum.

“The only silver lining for Labour is that there are still 30 seats where it is currently 5 percent or less behind the Tories. 

“If it can manage to squeeze the gap over the coming fortnight, it may be able to paste over the cracks in their so-called Red Wall. But with just two weeks to go, time is running out for Labour.”
