Thus proving he's 15 years old.

David Cameron, the elected head of state, chooses the Britain's EU Commissioner. Do you have a problem that the elected Tory party are able to create new legislation too? Elected MEPs are also able to block the Commissioner that Cameron has chosen.

So we've established that the process for choosing an EU commissioner is fair for Britain.

But he/she is only one of 28 other members. And the UK has no influence in who is chosen from other countries. Yet remarkably they have an influence on new EU laws which affect the UK.
"the UK has no influence in who is chosen from other countries" Please read your point "Elected MEPs are also able to block the Commissioners" - you do know there are UK elected MEPs?
