BREXIT: Unelected and unaccountable

editorial image

I write with reference to a letter in reply to Jack Gebhard by the self-proclaimed Angels For Europe (Morpeth Herald, October 26).

It seems ironic that they see their role as ‘exercising their democratic right to express their view’. After all, they chose to disregard a democratic vote to leave the EU to support 28 unelected commissioners, which has a president whose name was the only one on the ballot paper.

This is fundamentally an undemocratic power of unelected and unaccountable elite, who make laws in secret that seem to preserve the status of large multi-nationals.
