I think people underestimate the increased cost doing business due to overregulation coming from the EU.
And I thing you need to look at the facts! The Euro Group as a whole has increased it's positive balance of trade, Italy, considered one of the sick economies has started to produce a positive balance of trade, Spain has started to reduce it's negative balance of trade and Ireland has hit record highs in exporting. Strange how all these countries seem to be able to advance while the UK continues to produce a negative balance of trade...

The EU is just a handy excuse for under performance!
