What it all really boils down to is...

A democratic vacuum, earlier today.

‘agreements must be kept’. It is a basic principle of civil law and international law.

Thanks to that rule we were able to create a society a civilization that was formed by this simple principle. To make sure of that lets try to imagine any group of people, a community, or a society where nobody respects any agreement. As you can imagine it would be impossible to create any relationship between people as what we need to build it is a minimum of trust. The question is then, where to find trust if nobody respects any agreement, when nobody honours what he promised?

I can't fault one word of it. If you can't keep faith on one thing, why the hell should anyone believe a word you say on anything else? If you have laws, you stick to 'em, if you plunge yourself into contortions, shenanigans and chicanery to evade your own rules there's no point in whining about 'democratic deficit' you stupid, stupid EU bastards.
