British business person and activist, Gina Miller joins us to talk about her life, work, and famous legal challenges. Miller challenged Theresa May’s government in the supreme court for invoking Article 50 without consulting Parliament. And three years later, she took on Boris Johnson over his unlawful proroguing of Parliament. But Miller’s activism predates all this In 2012, she founded the True and Fair Campaign in order to put an end to financial misconduct in investment and pensions and in 2014, she founded MoneyShe.com, a female-focused investment brand. In October 2017, Miller was named by Powerlist as the “UK’s most influential black person” – but she suffers more than her fair share of online abuse. Do join us for a lively discussion.
