Can Italian or Greek MEPs vote and influence the Commission in a similar way? NO! If ALL (100%) of MEPs voted a motion of 'no confidence' in the European Commission they do NOT have to hold elections as they are 'appointed' by the 'European Parliament'. If a 'no confidence' motion is passed in the HoC Dok suggests we should NOT call elections as it's perfectly ok to appoint a dictator if the MPs agree. Is a win win for the MPs and the appointee! He promises them more perks and what have you abd he stays in power... a 'state of emergency' is called and elections 'delayed' and they are all happy changing constitutions (now happening in Italy: A constitutional amendment is foreseen for the elimination of one layer of government, i.e. Provinces.).
You realy want to try to tell me this is democratic? With all due respect if Britain ever goes this way I'd be the second Catholic in our history to try to ignite the Houses of Parliament and I'm sure I wouldn't be tried for treason.
