BREXIT FORCES RALLY TO PROTECT FREEDOM OF PRESS, TO CROWDFUND OWN LEGAL REPRESENTATION IN SUPREME COURT APPEAL


UK Prime Minister Theresa May has defended the freedom of the press after their criticism of the decision by three High Court judges to block her triggering Article 50 without a Parliamentary vote while Labour MPs have pledged they will not block a Brexit.

Leave.EU is also planning a “crowd fund” campaign to pay for barristers to represent Leave supporters in the court action and challenge claims made by Remain supporters and even the Government.

Speaking during the flight to India Theresa May said: “I believe and value the independence of our judiciary, I also value the freedom of our press.

“I think these both underpin our democracy and they’re important. Yes of course the judges would look at the legal arguments, I believe we’ve got, as a Government, strong legal arguments for our case.

“As I say, two court cases have been taken on this matter, have come to different decisions, the Supreme Court will now decide.

“I also reiterate that Parliament voted to give this decision to the British people in a referendum and I think for MPs and peers they should remember that the British people gave their view and the majority said we should leave the EU.”
