Is there any point in having a Chancellor?

with one comment

If the EU decides Darling’s budget, then why even bother having a Parliament?

God their lack of real democracy does my head in, the issue (about cigarette and tobacco duties) is neither here nor there, the principle is paramount. No taxation without representation!

The decision was taken without discussion.

So nice of them!

The Commission appears to decide the Laws, administers the Laws, and in some cases judges the Laws, the Parliament spews hot air about the Laws and the Council rubber stamps everything, the President gets paid more than Barack Obama and we get the bloody bill.

If such laws are to be used as community wide regulations then what is the point of having nation states where Parliaments are nothing more than a branch office of the EU? Why bother electing a government if every law that it makes needs to satisfy the EU? Why bother having a Cabinet, why bother having a Chancellor to produce a budget if half of it is predetermined in Brussels?
