Not being European, I tried to understand the issues. Some things that came to mind:

Globalism - the web , information flows across borders , ICT constructs involve highly distributed teams

eurozone - not benefiting everyone - bureaucrats making decisions, inequality in the banking system (Mark Blyth) - leads to challenge at the voting box [ Mark Blyth: "Austerity - The History of a Dangerous Idea" | Talks at Google; Mark Blyth--Are the Populists Threatening Democracy? ]

easier to do business across europe if grouped as EU (e.g. set up an office in London and do business in other parts of Europe) - Richard Branson, Virgin Group
