There is a serious democratic deficit in the EU (Re: David Owen 11/06/12).
None of the MEPs we elect are answerable to their own national parliaments. Instead of spending a costly and absurd week every month
in Strasbourg, MEPs should have to return to their own national parliaments to give an account of themselves.
Before we move to a referendum here and a referendum there, let us lead European thinking and bring forward reforms which make the EU fit for purpose.
