EU voting cause and effect – EU elections began in 1979 and now, over 70% of British law comes from the EU, while British MP representation in the EU parliament (the amending chamber) is a mere 8%. Even worse, British voter turnout for the last EU election (2009) was only about one third of the voting population, less than the 43% average voter turnout across Europe. What’s worse – that so few people vote after seeing the EU parliamentary process in action for so long, or that so few people vote for something that is increasingly dominating their lives?
