Does it really matter if the Commission is elected?

As I understand it, the Council of Ministers decided which way the EU was heading. The Commission then proposed laws that sought to achieve this. These proposals were debated, amended, approved, rejected by the EU Parliament (those that turn up - thinking of you, Mr Farage), with the Council members having the power to veto stuff.

Aren't the Commission akin to our own Civil Service, who aren't elected? No-one seems to complain about their influence.
