Having begun as a coal and steel trading bloc, the EU has expanded vastly over the last century. This expansion has meant less representation for UK voters and less accountability for EU officials.
Regulations and legislation emanate from the European Commission, which is entirely unelected.
The European Parliament has substantially less authority than the Commission: it cannot propose new legislation. While this institution is directly elected, only 73 of 751 of its members represent UK voters. UK voters have very little influence over decisions in the European Parliament.
In the Council of Ministers, consisting of government ministers from each member state, just one in twenty-eight has been elected by UK voters.
The British people have shown in both General and European Parliament elections that they place more faith in and importance upon our Westminster Parliament.
When we leave and take back control, elected Members of Parliament in Westminster will again have the freedom transparently to decide all aspects of UK law, for which UK voters will be able to hold them to account.
For the change we need, vote to Leave on 23 June.
