Gina Miller has been named Britain’s most influential black person

Anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller has been named the UK’s most influential black person, making it to the top of the 2018 Power List.

The list of 100 people recognises those in the UK of African and African Caribbean heritage who are rated on their “ability to change lives and alter events”.

Guyana born Gina led the successful legal challenge which forced Theresa May to get Parliament’s approval before triggering Article 50 in March.

She has since spoken out about the racist and sexist abuse she received as a result of her campaign, which ended in a Supreme Court judgement against the Government in January.

 

Other nominees included boxer Anthony Joshua and musician Stormzy.

Gina now joins big names such as architect David Adjaye and Baroness Patricia Scotland, who have both previously topped the list.
