Little is rarely as simple when stats are quoted very selectively. It simply distorts wider reality. If one looks at the broader evidence, then UK still does extremely well here by overwhelmingly supporting most EU laws & directives. To the best of my knowledge, most of the relatively few laws UK typically voted against relate to various financial regulations that have sought to rein in free market excesses. For eg. various tax-dodging loopholes & sensible limits on director bonuses. Perhaps well done to the EU in that case. - GL.
This bit seems germane from link, to quote:
"According to fact-checking organisation Full Fact, Britain is outvoted more than any other EU country, but it still doesn’t happen very often.
Official EU voting records show that the British government has voted ‘No’ to laws passed at EU level on 56 occasions, abstained 70 times, and voted ‘Yes’ 2,466 times since 1999.
In other words, UK ministers were on the “winning side” 95% of the time, abstained 3% of the time, and were on the losing side 2%.
This is counting votes in the EU Council of Ministers, which passes most EU laws jointly with the European Parliament."
