The EU works differently but everyone gets elected (although I point this FACT out every time).

A few months ago I pointed out that the cabinet was not elected but chosen by the Prime Minister. You and Baldman set about telling me that this did not matter because in the election everyone had voted for a party knowing who the leader was and what their manifesto was. Now, it seems, to suit a change of direction. More contradictin and rank hypocrisy.

To sum up. The Commission of the EU is elected by 750+ representatives of all the citizens of Europe who were voted in by proportional representation (I. E. Every vote counts) and you consider that undemocratic. However, Boris Johnson or whoever will become Prime Minister of the UK through the votes of 60,000 party members and you are OK with that. Just when I thought you couldn't get more ludicrous and laughable with your contradictory arguments you manage to do so.
