And EU Commissioners, like cabinet ministers are appointed not elected - you boorish lout.
Why should that be an issue in Europe?


Why oh why Jom do you always miss the point and always end up comparing apples to oranges???

The role of EU Commissioners cannot be compared to the role of Cabinet Ministers in any national government. Member states appoint Commissioners to the EU Council of Commissioners, in a national government cabinet ministers, most of whom have already been elected as members of the representative body, although in the UK members of the Lords can be appointed as Cabinet Ministers, but all Cabinet Members are appointed by the Political Party that has been elected to govern the country.

Now Kenny B assured us all that it was a fact that all EU Commissioners were elected MEPs they are not - that is fact.

He also tried to tell us {paraphrased} that in the UK the 'unelected' Civil Service dream up whatever legislation is put before Parliament - that is not true and nothing could be further from the truth.

Before Kenny B makes a point of it, who is this character Peploe who complained? You cliché ridden archetypal leftie-wanker - as you seem to be in the name calling mood {Thanks again Michael - you are a gem}
