And here we get to the crux of it. It's hard for me to imagine what it must be like to feel such self loathing for the country of your birth and its inhabitants that you're prepared, no eager in fact, to give up you own democratic rights (and theirs) and transfer sovereignty to an undemocratic and unaccountable body rather than put up with a bunch of incompetent morons for 5 years.
Undemocratic compared to the UK? Are you having a giraffe?

EU legislative governance lies with 3 institutions:

European Parliament - directly elected
European Council - democratically elected head of state of each member state
Council of Ministers - one minister from each democratically elected member state's government

The UK, otoh, has the House of Lords - part hereditary, part appointed. Plus a hereditary monarchy.
