Of course it could change.

We'd just need to remove or make the Commission democratically accountable to the European electorate directly.

There'd be no appetite for that from the individual governments though.

The heads of the individual countries could have sat down before the referendum and decided to hand everything over to the parliament or a larger commission voted directly by the people, not selected by some old boys secret handshake.

That would have knocked most the wind out of the Leave campaign.

This out of touch from the people attitude is a clear sign our democracies have gotten stuffy and unfit for purpose, no more so than in the UK with it's layered crust centuries of tradition which has served to insulate those in power. Sooner or later the crust will all that's left holding it up, and when that cracks, the results will be nasty.
