The Brexiters have been banging on about the lack of democracy in the EU, despite the fact that the supreme body of the EU is the European Parliament, a body of 751 MEPs that are directly elected from the 28 countries of the EU. It has full legislative power, and the European Commission is accountable to parliament.
However, in the UK, we have the peculiar institution of the House of Lords, a body of 800 unelected people who have the power to veto legislation passed by our democratically elected House of Commons. And as icing on the cake, 26 of these are "lords Spiritual", meaning bishops of a religion that therefore has an automatic say in the laws that atheists must obey!
I want democracy.
I want my country back.
I want the House of Lords to be elected.
