Re: Reading the article
I can vote in a national election, my party may or may not win, but the winning party can be dumped out at the next election.
Remember Neil pillock sorry kinnock... twice defeated in UK elections.... suddenly hes EU commissioner for the UK.. I distinctly remember not voting for that windbag (along with a lot of other people)and suddenly he has power?
EU president? well heres a turn up.... someone nobody in europe has voted for and hes got the job by a bunch of backroom deals among the governments of the EU.. sorry that aint a democracy.
Sure you can vote for an MEP... but they're not likely to upset anything, and in any case power resides with the EU governments and the officials they appoint to be in charge of us
PS I'm not the downvoter either
