The UK and the EU.. Better together.
The EU is not 'undemocratic'.. Shock, horror!
Why do Brexiteers present the EU Commission and EU Council as complicated and obscure, when they are not?
On the subject of democracy, many Brexiteers claim to prefer the UK system for electing British Members of Parliament at Westminster, which are run on a 'First past the post' system.. however as demonstrated below, the current UK system, is actually less democratic, than the Proportional Representation voting system, used in the UK, for electing our European Members of Parliament (MEPs). ..and that is before we get to the archaic, undemocratic House of Lords and a Prime Minister, chosen by his party, instead of a directly elected Senate and President.
The Conservatives and Liberal Democrat parties appeared to deliberately undermine the entire issue of electoral reform and re-engaging with the electorate, during the last UK government, by hiding behind the fact it was a Coalition and engineering a so called 'Referendum', which merely gave a choice between the existing 'First past the post' system.. and a PR system, which offered to re-enforce a 'First past the post' process, by adding secondary votes to the primary one.
There was NO offer of the genuinely democratic, proportional representation, British voters have in the EU.
To take a current example:
Under the supposedly 'undemocratic' EU system of PR voting, UKIP would have had 83.. that's right, EIGHTY THREE Westminster MPs, after the 2015 UK general election.
Odd how Brexiteer champions of 'democracy' are so keen on the 'First past the post' system, as opposed to a genuine PR system.. some might surmise, it is not PR's 'democratic' merits that are really being measured?
