Some people say:

  • The European Commission makes the laws but none of the Commissioners is elected.
  • Most of our laws are made in Brussels and we have little say in them.
  • EU laws take precedence over national laws the European Court of Justice decides in the case of dispute.
  • Brussels makes lots of stupid laws such as whether Women’s Institutes can re-use jam jars.

Not quite. Let’s check the facts.
