Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

But that has nothing to do with my point. However, if you wish to go down this route to its logical conclusion, then again, Brexit makes little material difference here. People can already raise issues to their local MP, who can, if he/she so chooses, raise it in Parliament. This won't change.
Really ??? Did you ever consider that their local MP might not be a member of the governing body (in this case the European parliament) which gave rise to the issue ???

The further away the constituency from the voter no surprise the more waste and bureaucratic absurdity takes place. In fact a similar phenomenon is a large part of the problem with socialism as Milton Friedman has often pointed out - no one spends their money as efficiently or productively as they themselves do.
