Who: EU Parliament, Business for Britain
"9.5% MEPS are British (73/751 seats)" (1)
"The UK’s representation in all of the EU’s bodies has declined dramatically. Since 1973 the UK’s voting power in the Council of Ministers has decreased from 17% to 8%, in the European Parliament it has decreased from 20% to 9.5% and in the European Commission it has decreased from 15% to 4%." (2)
THE CASE FOR A #FREEBRITAIN
"We are ruled by an unelected president that is Mr Juncker, a commission who once again are unelected and a parliament that doesn't have the power to initiate legislation, making it a faux parliament. If we left, we would have our MP's who are democratically elected, they would be beholden to us, the electorate. We wouldn't see this huge democratic deficit we see in the European Union. It's time to regain our democracy. It's time to leave."
Steven Woolfe MEP
