'@Juhani' North Korea does not have free elections, direct or otherwise. The EU most certainly DOES. At every level the "shadowy cabal of leaders" is ultimately answerable to votes by citizens, even if it's threaded through an MP that selects a PM that selects a representative.

But this has already been explained and ignored. Screaming "the EU is not a democracy!" is just chaff, a red herring to avoid actual, rational discussion.
