Oliver: Come, come, I will not accuse you of being naive, but every step that the UK has taken with regard to the EU, and our part in it, has been taken by British Governments. In fact it was Mrs Thatcher who signed the Single European Act, and Mr Major who got the Maastricht Treaty through Parliament. I seem to recall both were Conservatives. Whether we integrate further into the EU, if we remain in, will depend upon the UK Government of the day. Now, it seems, you do not trust the people to vote for the correct form of UK Government: Tut, Tut, and I thought you were a democrat. The 2011 Act is a substantial check on the actions of a future UK Government whatever its political philosophy. As for the European Parliament elections, the mode of election is for national governments to decide. Our present system of party lists (the D'Hondt system) is very poor, but we could switch to another system provided it was proportionate. STV for example. That is up to the Government to do if it feels strongly about it.
