Britain is 'one of most undemocratic countries in Europe'
This is a classic Mail story- another chance to have a pop at Britain and also a chance for its readers to link it to EU membership- with a comment from our favourite councillor from Tamworth too.
A salutory reminder that even supposing if by some miracle we ever manage to get out of the EU, this country still has a diseased democracy (the one that pushed us into the EU in the first place) that is going to have to be tackled. And anybody who thinks that can be done with the paramaters of the three parties that grab all the power in this country really don't understand where or how the problems all began. No good having an English Parliament, or any other fiddling with the democratic system, if the same parties hold all the power.

Of course we don't live in a democracy! We just spent the last 13 years under a Labour dictatorship!

So how do you explain the fact that they left government when they didn't win the last election? Twit.
Britain is now RULED by the UNDEMOCRATIC EU. I could not agree more with this headline.

That's why we want to quit the E.U., so that we can restore the sovereignty of the British Parliament to safeguard our democracy.

Obviously these people haven't realised that the top three countries in the survey- Denmark, Finland and Belgium- are all in the EU as well, which kind of suggests that EU membership is not the cause of our problems here. Although critical thinking isn't really displayed by these sort of people. Only one person has got it:
And the EU, is even MORE undemocratic, treating it's citizens, with contempt & like IDIOTS, which we are NOT as the only IDIOTS are the EU, as they do not make any SENSE,, which we all HATE & NEED OUT NOW. - Mr Very Very Angry, Sutton in Ashfield, an AWFUL place to live, dreaming of moving to CANADA., 02/2/2011 14:30 Are you a propagandist trying to deflect attention away from the failings of British MPs and government? I ask because the 3 most democratic countries all seem to be in the EU.
