Really, Britain? Is this the best you can be?

The evidence here just goes to show how gullible people are; how quick to judge others; and how wrong their reactions can be.

Firstly, Gina Miller is not a “traitor to democracy”. It would have been undemocratic to allow Theresa May to plan whatever she, personally, wanted for the UK’s departure from the European Union and then present it to the rest of us as a fait accompli. That’s undemocratic. In fact, it is despotism.

If you oppose Gina Miller’s court action, you oppose democracy.

To those complaining that she is a foreigner telling the UK what to do: Would these sheep-in-human-form rather have Theresa May dictating what will happen to them? This Writer is happy that someone pointed out that the Tories were going about Brexit the wrong way. I wonder who put them up to this abuse?

As for rape and death threats – these are criminal offences and it is to be hoped that the culprits will be found and prosecuted.

The businesswoman whose court action led to three judges ruling that MPs must authorise the start of the Brexit process has spoken of the “hatred and anger” she has faced on social media.

Gina Miller was bombarded with rape and death threats from abusive trolls following the ruling, with one Facebook user commenting “I hope she gets shot”, while another said “she should be hung as a traitor to democracy”.

The Guyana-born investment banker was also subject to a stream of racist abuse, with comments such as “why doesn’t she f*** off back where she came from”, while another added “we’ve had enough foreigners telling UK what to do gina miller [sic].”

The campaigner today pinned the blame for the angry reaction on “irresponsible” UKIP leader Nigel Farage and the tabloid media.

“Yes there has been a deluge of hatred and anger but this is because people were lied to in respect to the EU referendum, and because (of) irresponsible figures like Farage and tabloid media who lack any understanding of parliamentary democracy and the rule of law that is the bedrock of our civil society”, she told the International Business Times.
