Time and time again, we have pointed out that the commission rules only through and with the permission of the parliaments of the member states, and with the connivance of their governments. It is not the brooding presence of a Soviet-style politburo but our own governments and MPs who conspire together to foist the rule of the EU upon us.
As for a politburo, the nearest thing is the much-misunderstood European Council, comprising the heads of states and governments of the member states. They are the people who hold this construct together and it is they who manipulate and exploit the system to circumvent our democratic structures and lines of accountability.
Sound. It is too easy just blaming Brussels for all the dangerous madness forced on us because we simply find ourselves alongside the political class which also uses Brussels as scapegoat. Our fire should be on all our own politicians and it will need a public crusade headed by UKIP and all other eurorealists. The Tories are as culpable as the Lib/Lab.
