The EU will not be a democracy until ..
The EU (or Eurozone or Europlus) will not be a democracy until there is a federal income tax (US style).
Until then the richest people (via their national governments - "paymasters") demand a bigger or almost total say in EU affairs. That would not fly in a real "European Union". It does not fly at national level of course (although some try it at that level too).
