Conference - Monday Highlights

Gina Miller's Speech Gina Miller delivered an impassioned speech on the need to continue with a unified fight against Brexit.

On the topic of Brexit, she had a clear message for Jeremy Corbyn: "grow a backbone , stand up for the millions of people who voted for you and help us stop Brexit."
