So we have some directly elected (clue: I just gave you the phrase you have failed to use along the way) representatives in the EU and thus have the democracy you so love at that point. In the EU Council we have national government ministers so 2/3 of the institutions running the EU have directly elected officials. It is the other third you complain about. The Commission. They are chosen, initially by national prime ministers, then by the President of the Commission then election by the Parliament. Not the democracy you seem to crave but nonetheless democracy.

How is the House of Lords decided and, since you complain about the EU President as 'head of state' can I ask where I vote for the UK head of state.
