Simple as that really.
We don't have democracy. The Parliamentary election system we have is a farce; not a system designed to represent the votes of the people.
This is actually what sealed my vote as IN. Overall, the policies of the EU have been good, progressive things that have bolstered the rights of workers and consumers. I take comfort in the fact that those things are beyond the control of our crummy government.
The fact that those in politics who want that power are (broadly) those with the views I most object to reinforces my view that without the EU the man on the street would be far worse off.
