Tory ministers refused to back down when Gina Miller won a ruling that said MPs should vote on Article 50 – and the stubbornness has cost us dear.
The Tory government blew more than £1.1MILLION of taxpayer cash fighting the Supreme Court case on Brexit , it’s been revealed.
Ministers refused to back down when Remain campaigner Gina Miller won a ruling last year that said MPs should vote before triggering Article 50 – the two-year exit from the EU.
MPs got their vote in the end, but only after the government mounted a failed four-day fight at the Supreme Court to try and get their way.
Today the Brexit Department’s annual accounts have revealed the total cost of the Article 50 case to taxpayers, from start to finish, was £1.143million.
