Gina Miller challenges the government over Theresa May’s DUP deal as ‘Parliament had not approved the deal’


Could the government be toppled?

Gina Miller has accused the British government of “acting above the law” over Theresa May’s controversial DUP ‘confidence and supply deal’, costing British tax payers £1bn.

Miller has said the £1bn DUP deal that May did after her majority defeat over the General Election is not valid, as Parliament had not approved the deal.

Ms Miller and the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain who launched the legal challenge received from government lawyers, who wrote that the deal, “will have appropriate Parliamentary authorisation.

However, “no timetable has been set for the making of such payments.”

Miller took the government to the high court and won this year over the Brexit legal challenge, said: “It’s going to be very difficult to get the deal through Parliament because they don’t have a significant majority and many people are not happy about this payment.

“If they start to lose bills, and lose votes the toppling of this government seems to be a possible outcome.”
