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.
"The EU has FIVE presidents." One is president of the central bank who like the head of the UK Bank of England is not elected and another is head of the eurogroup which is about the euro so of no interest to the UK.
In the UK you have the PM, the Leader of the House of Commons, the Leader and members of the House of Lords who are all not elected.

Like EU commissioners, UK Cabinet Ministers are also nominated.
