It is of course important to remember that the EU legislation in question has been through all the standard pre-proposal consultation mechanisms, and been adopted under the co-decision procedure by the European Parliament and the Council, with elected British members in Parliament voting on the proposals in question, and Ministers in Council (mostly elected, although some come from the House of Lords) deciding by qualified majority after receiving the opinions of the relevant scrutiny committees at Westminster. And in this field, as in so many others, the UK has until now had a decisive role in shaping the legislation in question.
