Each level of bureaucracy just takes the sovereignty away from the people. they are just a way to cover up corruption and undemocratic, centralized power.
The Commission is made up of 27 unelected officials that represent the EU and has the sole power to propose laws, it’s 28th member is the President, elected by the parliament, but like, with Juncker his was the only name on the ballot when he was elected.
The parliament can’t propose laws or make changes to laws once passed by the Commission. And each member state only has limited veto power when it comes to the Eu Council which can be made of unelected “ministers” and might not even have member states represented while in session.
The problem is when that the lobbyists in Brussels are representing powerful monetary interests to unelected bureaucrats and none of them have any responsibility to the people,
they’ve used the power to strip the people of wealth like with forced austerity and bail-ins to pay vulture investment banks that had made bad loans. The people of Greece or Cyprus are being impoverished to bankers for the next century just to make sure they always get their profits.
The people voted to Brexit and they’ve been held in limbo for years because the EU and pro-EU MPs won’t let it happen w/out huge penalties … essentially punishments on the people.
The Undemocratic EU Explained – It Will Never Change
Matthew Ellery 21/03/2016
The EU’s law-making process is fundamentally undemocratic. Power is vested in the unelected and unaccountable elite who make laws – in secret – to preserve the status of large multinationals at the expense of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Multinationals achieve their preferential status by spending enormous sums of money on lobbying. They create a complicated regulatory framework, which only large companies with their Human Resources departments can comply with. This drives small competitors out of business, destroys competition and encourages monopolies, forcing the consumer to pay a higher price for poorer quality goods and services.
There are four key institutions of the EU: the European Commission, European Parliament, European Council and the Court of Justice of the EU. Each institution supposedly represents separate interests. The Commission represents the EU, the Parliament represents the people, the Council represents the Governments of each Member State and the Court interprets the law. However, these institutions do not do this in practice, as they all represent large multinationals and an integrationist agenda, as the intention is to create a federal United States of Europe. This new country already has a flag, a Parliament, an anthem, Presidents, currency, a legal system, legal status and a navy – to name just a few.
The EU Commission is the guardian of the treaties and enforces EU law. More importantly, this means it is the Government of Europe which has the sole right to propose the laws which increasingly encroach on our lives here in Britain.
The Commission is made up of 28 unelected commissioners, who cannot be held to account. Each commissioner has a specific policy area in which to create laws. The Commission has a President (currently Jean-Claude Juncker); unlike the other 27 commissioners he is personally elected by the European Parliament, however his was the only name on the ballot paper, not exactly democratic. The Commission is advised by the Directorate General, which along with the Commission is heavily lobbied. Once the Commission proposes an EU law, this proposal is taken to the Parliament.
