Brussels cunning plan to save the EU: No more Cookie Popups

Re: We have the politicians we deserve

The point is that in Brussels, we aren't represented by people we voted for. Having a stable Civil Service in the UK (for instance) means that while political parties come and go, at least the business of government can carry on lead by (but unhindered by) whoever just won the most recent popularity vote.

In Brussels, however, the euro-parliament is a side-show to distract you from the loss of democracy. Actors (former politicians usually) playing the roles of politicians are plied with huge amounts of money and benefits and they play along with it because it's a get-rich quick scheme where the whole family can join in.
