Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On the official figures, it's still more than 1M difference by the way, the French economy is not the mainland France economy.

You have a point, however, look at the regional data at INSEE:

  1. the €1,792 billion final total quoted by FT seems to cover DOM-TOM incompletely,
  2. using €1.32 = £1 (the current price is even below that), Metropolitan France's €1,762 billion total for 2006 equals £1,335 billion, still well ahead of the UK's £1,304 billion.
