This troll has published a thread attacking @Femi_Sorry for his video on EU democracy. I don’t like feeding trolls, but this one is getting attention for the wrong reason and his thread deserves detailed rebuttal. It’s a staggering tissue of lies and half-truths.
The EU always consults national govts in areas where it has exclusive competence. It does this through the “comitology” process - a network of committees in which member state governments advise, consult, and manage the EU civil service in its work.
When it comes to actually legislating in areas of exclusive competence, in the vast majority of all cases the Member States (Council) and elected MEPs are the legislators acting on a proposal from the Commission.
If Leave had shown some compassion, humanity, humility, strength of character after their razor-thin 'win' in the referendum then things might have been very different. But they didn't. Their response was to try to make us disappear. So they own this entire mess. 1/
We had insults ('crush the saboteurs', 'enemies of the people', 'citizens of nowhere') and lies ('the country is coming together behind Brexit'). And half the population find themselves othered, excluded, ignored, gagged, denied, disenfranchised, disempowered. 2/
"What about the 17 million?" they whine, gracious winners that they are, as if they're not getting exactly what they ordered. Meanwhile, what about the 16 million? If being ignored is so terrible and anti-democratic, how come you're so happy to ignore us?
