YEUO 5pts UK has been very succesfull in lobbying for many EU legislations within trade and liberalizations etc. and have benefited alot from it. I would say no country in EU has a more developed lobbying than the UK. It's a litte bit of a shame that Open Europe now lift migration as a big issue, aligning with many other right wing radical political Groups in EU. The challange we all face in the developed Europe is the deomgraphics, with oldering population and lowered work force. It's clear facts that asian economies got their injections and growth from a very young work force; the same might happen in Africa. A cloosed, oldering europé has small chances to remain competive in the global economy.
