Brexiteers vented their fury at the BBC for allowing Gina Miller to rubbish Brexit hours before Britain officially leaves the EU. The prominent anti-Brexit campaigner appeared to demean Brexit by insisting that Britain “had never lost its sovereignty” regardless of what the Brexit campaign claimed. She also predicted the division inside the UK will get worse as people will no longer “have the EU to blame” after Brexit.
She told the BBC: “I’m hearing all these phrases about how optimistic we must be but very little detail.
“It’s not 11 months that is important, it is four months. By the end of June, if we don’t have an agreement in place with the EU, no deal is back on the table.”
Ms Miller admitted she would not be able to force an extension to the Brexit trade talks that are expected to end by December 2020.
The prominent anti-Brexit activist admitted Boris Johnson had outwitted Remainers by putting a block on extensions into law.

She said: “Some people are talking about an extension but there is no possibility of an extension unless there is a new act of Parliament.
“Having no extension is actually written into the withdrawal agreement. It is law that there will be no extension.”
Ms Miller added: “We never lost our sovereignty. I accept we are leaving. I am pleased it is legally so other countries cannot sue us.”
She went on to warn that a no deal could put Britain in a “cold, hard place”.
