Backing Best for Britain

Section:

Gina Miller achieves 1,000% of target in less than 24 hours in crowdfunding drive to fund tactical voting initiative against hard Brexit

 

On Wednesday, businesswoman and philanthropist Gina Miller launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise £10,000 to “support the country’s biggest tactical voting drive ever and stop extreme Brexit”. Within twenty-four hours, that target was smashed and as of 10:30am Thursday morning, the total amount raised stands at £110,000.

 

Of the initiative, which will fund a group launching next week named ‘Best for Britain’, Mrs Miller told The Guardian:

 

“We want to build the biggest tactical voting effort in UK history to ensure that candidates across the country that promise to do what’s best for Britain in the Brexit process get the extra support they need to win”.

 

“If the deal the next government negotiates doesn’t match up to our current terms, MPs should do what’s best for Britain and reject it. We will be asking MPs to pledge to keep an open mind and not be bullied into giving the next government a blank cheque for the final deal”.

 

“There isn’t time to organise a formal progressive alliance. We have to do what we can in the time available. We need to re-energise people about the importance of voting tactically”.

 

“We need to have a galvanising moment. We need to have a strategy and a structure… We have to put aside egos. It is about being pragmatic”.

 

On the page itself, Miller gives further detail of how the money raised will be spent. She remarked:

 

“We will support candidates who campaign for a real final vote on Brexit, including rejecting any deal that leaves Britain worse off”.

 

“We will use the money to back candidates who pledge to support a full and free vote on the Brexit deal. We will also work with organisations with the same goals. The money raised will not pay staff salaries”.

 

Best for Britain has already appointed Eloise Todd, previously executive director of policy for anti-poverty organisation the ONE Campaign, as a campaign director. She added:

 

“We will support different parties and independents, and organisations working in this space. We are not party political. We stand for democracy in this country and a constitution that respects proper balance of powers and doesn’t railroad the country into an extreme Brexit”.

  1. I regret voting LEAVE last year and wish I had not. I will not believe Mrs May’s lies this time round and will be, for the first time, voting for the Liberal Democrats to get a Tory out.

  2. I am still not sure what the purpose of this fundraising drive is. Why not form a party yourself Gina if that is your aim? Backing the existing individuals won’t give you any control of destiny. Politicians simply go wherever the money is after all.

  3. Lock her up!!!!!!!!!!!! And lock Steeples up too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, seriously – Why are you supporting this stupidity by giving it air space??????????????????? Vote for Teresa May as she will copy Donald Trump and MAKE BRITAIN GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Deport the thieving immigrant interlopers and pull up the drawbridge!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Britain needs to fix its borders and BUILD A WALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Rod you should be locked up and the key thrown out!

    Build a wall around you. With good points of discussion you come out with crap!

    Steeples is doing fine and bring some good points for discussion.

    You are a crazy pointless racist wild animal.

    Don’t you do any research on anything, you just got a big mouth!

    People like you are very dangerous.

    Think what say! Think! Rest your mouth! With your frantic explanation marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There are good and bad people in this world. Seems that you suck up propaganda like a mop sponge gone wild with no brains!

    I pray that Britain will be wise. With people like Gina making sure things are done properly hopefully might help someone..

    I just hope that there are no more Lies or “U-Turns”! In order to gain more power from honest people.

  5. Well, I have to admire her tenacity.
    She has all kind of abuse and even death threats. Yet she still keeps going as she believes in her cause.
