Britain’s government threatened with legal action by anti-Brexit campaigner

Vastavam web: Britain’s government has been threatened with legal action by an anti-Brexit campaigner and a union over the deal Prime Minister Theresa May struck with a Northern Irish party to keep her Conservatives in power after her botched election last year.Ministers have been sent a legal letter warning that 50 million pounds of funding for the province, part of a 1 billion pound deal agreed between May and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) – was unlawful because it was made without parliamentary agreement.

“It beggars belief that this government is once again putting itself above the law and seeking to undermine the normal constitutional and legal processes,” Miller said in a statement.“Spending public money requires proper parliamentary scrutiny and accountability – and the making of these payments is no different.”May called a snap election last June but lost her parliamentary majority and now relies on support from lawmakers in the small DUP to govern.
