To say the EU lacks democratic accountability when the UK has even less democratic accountability makes it seem like you don't know what you're talking about.

What on earth do you mean?

Well starting with parliaments one elects members using proportional representation, i.e 20% of the vote gives you 20% of the power, and the other uses an electoral district (constituency) voting system, i.e 13% of the vote can give you next to no power.

One uses qualified majority voting (at least 72% or representing 65% of the population), the other uses a first past the post system that can be unrepresentative of the population.

Moving onto the executive body, one proposes its head of state from the party with the most elected members of parliament and then that proposition is voted upon by the whole of parliament, the other has a unelected hereditary head of state. One then allows elected ministers to propose heads of departments that are then put to the vote in parliament, the other allows elected ministers to put whomever they want in the position.

This is where similarities start to break down a little but, one has an institution made up from the elected heads of nations while the other has an unelected hereditary upper house.

I've probably missed some bits 'n' peices and could be mistaken in my understanding on the working of it all but that's the general gist of it.

Also governments local enough to have at least some clue how the population feels (talking councils and such) have relatively little power.
