Default Would you accept to be solely under the jurisdiction of the ECJ?

Would you accept this without any qualms or, if not and it was imposed anyway as a condition to live in the EU, what would you change in your life?

What do you mean by 'solely'? If you live in any EU country then you are under the jurisdiction of the ECJ.

If you lived in Liverpool why would you be subject to Parliament rule without any qualms......?

Which ever country you choose to live in you live by their rules and regulations not one's which you wish your native one had.

Are you in the UK and are thinking of moving to France? If not, then a question in the general Europe section below would get more response.
As it is, we in France are governed by French and EU legislation, and I don't see where "qualms" come into it. You either take it or leave it....

Well, if you're still a british citizen then you are also under the jurisdiction of the UK government, hence the question.

I haven't heard of anyone proposing any alternatives or even care. No similarity there.

Unless you have diplomatic immunity then you are under the jurisdiction of the legal system of your country of residence. Your citizenship is irrelevant.

I don't understand the question. Do you mean, abolish national legal systems? But how on earth do you think the ECJ could possibly deal with every court case in every EU state, if the whole of Europe was under their sole direct juridiction with no national legal systems in place to enforce the law in their own countries?
