Re: @ Hans 1

Everyone with an axe to grind dismisses the indirect influence via our admittedly untrustworthy (but elected) government, choosing who to represent us in the institutions and more directly in the Council of Ministers. We voters are poorly represented not unrepresented. Government usurping the individual sovereignty no ordinary Briton ever really had, in Europe just like they do at home.

One thing has been consistent though, our gov consistently fights against giving MEPs more power. Any time someone claims the EU is undemocratic look to local gov for the reason. They refuse to loosen their grip on power all the while blaming everyone else. Are they frightened peace might break out or something?
