Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The UK also includes Northern Ireland and Wales.

Now the problem is that regional GDP data has been discontinued, instead, they track GVA (gross value added), and I'm not sure what everything constitutes the difference.

  • UK 2006 GVA: £1,155 billion
  • Scotland 2006 GVA: £91 billion
  • England 2006 GVA: £969 billion

From this, in Euros at £1 = €1.32:
  • UK 2006 GVA: €1,525 billion
  • UK minus Scotland 2006 GVA: €1,404 billion
  • England 2006 GVA: €1,279 billion

Now for comparison, according to Eurostat:
  • UK 2006 GVA: €1,779 billion (at the 2006 exchange rate!)
  • France 2006 GVA: €1,600 billion
  • Spain 2006 GVA: €874 billion
  • Spain 2006 GDP: €981 billion

...so England is still comfortably ahead of Spain. You forgot that much of the UK economy is not production or local services, but financial sevices in the City.
