You're using Ireland vs UK as an argument based on a crude GDP measure?!?!
No I have been talking about the balances of trade all through this discussion.

IMO, the UK has been actively harmed during its membership of the EU as its ability to manage its trade policy has been hobbled by the EU.
That is the point, the other countries produced positive balances of trade for the period where as the UK did not. That is why I'm saying it can't just be the EU to blame, domestic policy must play a major part in it.
