    To be honest I think an absolute monarchy is preferable to the twat in power and the twat that's going to be in power come the next election. Yeah they call it democracy but we all know who's going to be voted in.

    This. It's not even worth going to vote when it comes round - not that I know of a better alternative.

    What does it matter who you vote for, the EU commission (which drafts all the legislation)is - unelected

    The EU is an expensive, undemocratic, corrupt load of bollox!!!

    I voted UKIP out of protest.

    Because they're not corrupt - three of their MEPs got downed for fraud and embezzlement.

    I guess your political choice is as correct as your idea of the EU.

    Oh sorry please tell me the last time the EU Auditors were able to sign off the EU accounts...

    ...at least those responsible for fraud in UKIP were kicked from the party.

    Please enlighten me which of these points is incorrect - Expensive, undemocratic, corrupt?

    2008 - check their latest annual report

    Also check this - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euromyth

    There is accountability in the EU as well - I remember some people were turned down after applying for Commissioners last time, mostly to do with conflict of interest or incompetency.

    All 3 of them? I would tend to agree that say the EU Commission should be elected rather than haggled over by national governments, but that's the reality of having 27 nations doing something together.

    Firstly the EU Auditors have not signed off the EU Accounts for the last 14 years

    Here is a quote from the Annual report you linked

    However,as in previous years, the Court found too high levels of errors of illegality and irregularity in areas of the EU budget accounting for the majority of expenditure.
    link here http://www.europeanvoice.com/article...ain/63002.aspx

    Note* - please do not use wikipedia as a valid source as it is open to anyone to edit.

    Secondly - Expensive - the EU costs the UK approximately £40 million per day - this is not including the cost of stifling regulation.

    You say that it IS democratic - when the poeple who draft the legislation are unelected?

    Do more homework b4 posting plix
