How to ensure other people make the rules


EUThe constant criticism of Eurosceptics such my MEPs Diane James, Nigel Farage, Ray Finch (all members of UKIP) along with Janice Atkinson (no longer allowed to be a member of UKIP) and Daniel Hannan (Conservative) that too many of our laws are decided by other people who we don’t elect seems to be an accurate reflection of the voting record of all of the British MEPs including those five who between them participated in just over 85% of the votes in the European Parliament in the period 1st July 2014 – 17th December 2015. To be fair that is not the worst voting record in the EU (an accolade granted to Latvia, Bulgaria and Greece in that order). However to come 4th from bottom of 28 states when we claim to be the mother of all democracies is pretty shameful! It seems time to find some better representatives who are prepared to ensure our voices are heard!
