Gina Miller, the pro-EU campaigner who mounted a successful court challenge against Article 50, has established a crowdfunding page in a bid to prevent an ‘extreme Brexit’.

Ahead of the General Election on June 8, Mrs Miller has established a GoFundMe campaign to ‘back candidates who pledge to support a full and free vote on the Brexit deal.’

The crowdfunding campaign has now raised over £89,000 in a single day, putting it on course to smash the initial target of £100,000.

On the page, Mrs Miller pledges to ‘fight to make the Brexit deal process transparent, honest and democratic.’

The page comes ahead of an official launch for a new pressure group called Best for Britain that she will launch next week.

Describing the campaign, she said: ‘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.’

Mrs Miller previously secured a High Court victory in January, after it was ruled that Brexit must be approved by parliament. The subsequent vote was held in March and the Lords voted in favour.
