Anti-Brexit activist Gina Miller tells GB News criticism she is facing is 'misogyny'
Gina Miller launched new political party True and Fair Party yesterday
Anti-Brexit activist Gina Miller has launched a new political party aimed at opposing what she calls the “elective dictatorship” in Westminster.
At the sparsely attended launch of the True and Fair Party at the QEII Centre on Thursday, Ms Miller said it was time for change, hitting out at both the Tories and Labour.
And she promised to clean up politics and push for a constitutional overhaul.
Speaking on GB News, Gina Miller discussed the response to the launch of her new political party True and Fair.
She said: "The misogyny towards me, if I was a man launching the party yesterday I doubt people would have been talking about my hair or what I was wearing.
"It was nothing about the speech whatever, the fact that we talked about real economic issues.
"I'm not under any illusion in this still feeble environment, such a shame for our country.
"We've still got to come together and think about this country. And that is my focus. I don't expect it to be an easy ride. But I have to try. It's my civic duty."
Ms Miller, who has brought legal cases over Brexit, said there had been an “erosion of trust” in the political system.
And she said: “It is time for a new approach to politics. I hope that many people around the country will want to join the True and Fair Party to bring real and meaningful change.”
Ms Miller said polling had found 66% of people would consider voting for a new political party.
And she said her new party “champions greater transparency, accountability, competency than existing political parties provide”.
She added: “Whatever people may say about me – and they’ve said quite a few things over the years – I get results.”
