Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
No, you are wrong the common market and the EU are two different things , we had a vote on entering The common market but no vote on ENTERING the EU.THE COMMON MARKET WAS PURELY A TRADING ORGANISATION. THE EU
How It Is Governed
Three bodies run the EU. The EU Council represents national governments. The Parliament is elected by the people. The European Commission is the EU staff. They make sure all members act consistently in regional, agricultural, and social policies. Contributions of 120 billion euros a year from member states fund the EU.
Here's how the three bodies uphold the laws governing the EU. These are spelled out in a series of treaties and supporting regulations:
The EU Council sets the policies and proposes new legislation. The political leadership, or Presidency of the EU, is held by a different leader every six months.
The European Parliament debates and approves the laws proposed by the Council. Its members are elected every five years.
The European Commission staffs and executes the laws. Jean-Claude Juncker is the president until October 2019.
There was no discussion or proposition on how THE UK should leave the EU.
