Daniel Hannan makes a good point, and I think it not only applies to the EU but probably to all western governments styling themselves as "democracies" in one way or another.

No, not really to all western governments. The EU is unique. EU commissioners, who form the governing body responsible for developing legislation, implementing decisions, upholding the Union's treaties and the general day-to-day running of the Union, are appointed and not elected!

Unelected mandarins do not a democracy make!

Ahh looks like many of our best congressional statements, made in an empty assembly room...
I wonder no balls or not allowed to make the statement in a full house?

We have unelected bureaucrats making laws in the U.S. as well.
