Some kind of pre-vote testing should be brought in

You mean an IQ test?

What's the criteria? +120 and not racist?

In the EU commissioners are faceless Eurocrats, accountable to few and wont be pushed out if the electorate dont like what they are doing. Without looking one up, name a commissioner. I cant. 

Most people in the UK can't even name one of their local councillors - so not being able to name a Eurocrat hardly seems relevant?

 MPs are the ones helping instigate primary legislation, not councillors. Wrong comparison.  You can vote out a councillor.

As mention in previous replies - they can instigate primary legislation, but it can't become law without a vote in the European Parliament. Who do you think helps "instigate primary legislation" for MP's in Westminster? Un-elected Private Secretaries and their civil service departments. Granted, the euro commissioners do have some extraordinary powers (to enforce existing laws), but they cannot impose laws on the British people that have not already been passed in the elected chamber - any more than a British civil servant can do.

The Euro MPs dont need anything except a big rubber stamp for laws not of their making. If UK legislation encounters problems suiting all parts of the UK, times that by 27 for the EU. Impossible.

I just don't get how you think that UK legislation is aimed for the benefit of ordinary people anyway. Many of the important protections we have as individuals come from EU legislation. To my mind one set of idiotic wankers counter balances the other. The thought of a Tory government being able to do whatever it wants is scary indeed.

If anyone thinks an MP in London gives a flying fuck about Dave the plumber from Stockport they're deluded.

Fucking hell the Tories are even dithering about getting rid of May, no wonder they can't run the country. If they do eventually decide to get rid we should have a general election, I've never liked this business of replacing the PM just because the PM's party are pissed off with their leadership.

I am now as clear minded as I ever was. Confusion Theory reigns.

Abstract
Used the method of reproduction to measure the illusion generated by that Muller-Lyer figure with obliques directed inward. In Exp. I, the angle between the obliques and the shaft of the figure was varied. The illusion decreased with increasing angle of the obliques. In Exp. II, length of obliques was concomitantly varied with angle size so as to keep distance between opposite obliques constant. 34 undergraduates were used in both experiments. Exp. II showed no effect of the angle of the obliques, indicating that the Muller-Lyer illusion results in part from confusion of the shaft length with the distance between the ends of obliques. In Exp. III with 44 undergraduates, the distance between ends of obliques was varied along with the angle size in a factorial design. The results indicate a strong effect of the distance and an interaction between the 2 variables. The latter effect is also explainable by the confusion hypothesis.
