Hi and Welcome To JA.

Following are main disadvantages of the European Union:

Too many rules and regulation. Too many regulations and directives for countries to implement.

Uncountable to its citizen. As decisions are taken far away from citizen's countries, its bad for democracy.

Concentration of power. The EU has taken away political and economic power from its members and main power is located at Brussels. Too big to hear small voices from far and away.

Speed of integration. The EU is expanding at phenomenal rate thus giving no deep thought to new policies and studying results of directives already implemented in different member states.

Loss of national Sovereignty. Probably the biggest touching point for member states is they have to give up national sovereignty, which has become a popular reason for nationalist to persuade people to say "NO" to European Union.

Inequality among bigger and smaller states. France , Germany and UK hold separate meetings and are trying to suppress smaller states. It is yet to be seen, if it is the Union of equal Partners???
