Her rant against Prime Minister Theresa May's shock decision to call a new general election on June 8 spread like wildfire across social media and newspapers, who said her comments summed up the mood of the nation.
With Mrs May needing the support of 434 MPs - two thirds of all seats in the House of Commons - some 522 voted for the early election, with just 13 against.
Speaking at Prime Minister's Questions in the Commons shortly before MPs vote on her plans for a June 8 poll, Mrs May denounced her Labour rival Jeremy Corbyn as "not fit to lead".
The early election is the latest twist a turbulent year in British politics, which was plunged into turmoil when the country unexpectedly voted to leave the European Union last year. Former Prime Minister David Cameron has characterized him as a "terrorist sympathizer".
Kirsty Blackman, MP for Aberdeen North, said: "The day job has been well and truly abandoned by the Prime Minister who has thrown Brexit negotiations into the air for her own party political gains".
"If we're negotiating at a point that is quite close to a general election, I think the Europeans might have seen that as a time of weakness when they could push us", she said.
She added: "Make no mistake, if the SNP wins this election in Scotland, and the Tories don't, then Theresa May's attempt to block our mandate to hold another referendum when the time is right, will crumble to dust".
She knows that as the terms of her hard Brexit become clearer, the deep misgivings that so many people already have will increase and grow.
"Every vote for the Conservatives will make me stronger when I negotiate for Britain with the prime ministers, presidents and chancellors of the European Union".
She added: "It is only with the Conservatives that you get the strong and stable leadership that this country needs to see us through Brexit and beyond".
Ms Miller said she wants this campaign to be the biggest tactical voting effort in United Kingdom history, adding: "The election will be more important for the future of Britain than any in living memory; how people decide to vote is vital".
In a preview of her election strategy, Mrs May said: "I will be taking out to the country in this campaign a proud record of a Conservative government".
Osborne says he's stepping down to focus on his new role as editor of the London Evening Standard.
"Had the election been in 2020, we would have been coming up to the most crucial part of the negotiations at the end of the negotiations in what would be starting to be the run-up to a general election", she said. "A prime minister who can not be trusted".
She said on Tuesday she had "reluctantly" come to the decision to call for an early election because of political division in Westminster, criticising opposition parties for trying to thwart her plans for leaving the EU.
Even though the party looks set to lose many seats, some of Corbyn's internal party opponents welcomed May's election call, seeing it as an opportunity to get rid of the leader after the predicted collapse.
