Will the EU be the death of democracy?

Will the EU be the death of democracy?

This timely, highly informative debate asks whether democracy and sovereignty can mean anything in the European Union.  We learn of the use of the EU by national governments to evade responsibility, the need for a clash of ideas, why banks must be allowed to fail in order to shake things up, the dangers of technocracy replacing democracy and more. An exceptional line up of speakers take us beyond the usual Eurosceptic versus Europhile debate and challenge us to consider what sort of Europe we want, who we are and what democracy means.  WORLDbytes volunteers are delighted to be filming and editing this series.

This is a very informative debate on the EU which has drawn many opinions. My personal view is the EU is not the death of democracy. However I partly agree with Brian as he states that a key reason there is growth in Europe is because Germany have benefited from the EU. I feel this creates a problem between countries in the EU as most other countries in the EU at the moment are suffering.
