"Is the European Union, with its unelected Commissioners and elected MEPs of the 27 member nations, really democratic or has it become, over time, more like the former politburo of the Eastern bloc communist countries with everything centralized and decision-making and diktat emanating from the group of bureaucrats and politicians at the very centre?"

"Recently I stood on a platform for 15 minutes, reading emails. I googled "is the B train running today" and there were answers, but none less than six months old. Finally a Spanish tourist politely asked me if the padlocked bar across the tracks was customary or if perhaps it might indicate that the train would not be coming today. We went upstairs."
