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.
Whatever the UK system is, it only has the UK's interests in mind, and not 27 other countries. The UK also has Parliament Act, which limits the powers of the House of Lords. It's far from ideal but far better than what's in the EU.

The EU has FIVE presidents. You cannot vote for a single one. All you can vote for is an MEP, which sit in an institution that can't legislate. EU commissioners are nominated (you can't vote for them = undemocratic) and and and.
