“Nothing can stop us now”

“No 10 aides”, to the Sun on Sunday

August 11, 2019

Claim

The Sun on Sunday reported: “REMAINERS threatening legal action to block a No Deal Brexit were warned last night: ‘Nothing can stop us now.’” The newspaper said remain activist Gina Miller had “too little time” to prevent Boris Johnson proroguing parliament to force through no deal.

Facts

The Supreme Court ruled on 24 September — more than a month before the Brexit deadline of 31 October — in favour of Miller that Johnson’s prorogation of parliament had been unlawful. The prime minister was forced to recall parliament.

Verdict

Anonymous “No. 10 aides” misled Sun on Sunday readers.
