The backlash to yesterday’s High Court ruling from pro-Brexiters was exceptionally strong, with one of the campaigners who brought the legal challenge even receiving a string of death threats.
Gina Miller, 51, led the action against the government’s plan to commence Article 50 negotiations to leave the EU without parliament’s consent.
But Miller has received online threats, including people saying she should be “shot” and “hung”.
Earlier, chief figures from the Brexit campaign were angry Parliament will be given a vote on Article 50 – despite having long-argued in favour of parliamentary sovereignty.
Politicians who spent months promising Brits they could “take back control” of their laws and sovereignty argued fiercely that elected Westminster officials should be denied the chance to debate the biggest political shake-up in modern politics.
