THE European Union is facing a growing bloc of eurosceptics from within its own ranks who are happy to challenge the Brussels elite as they fail to act to solve the continent’s problems.

Italian MEP Marco Zanni, who represents the Europe of Nations and Freedom Group, predicted a growing tension within the bloc as its leaders fail to deal with the economic, migration and internal security woes it faces.

The European Union has long been criticised for acting in the interests of its bigger western members – such as Germany and France – the likes of Greece and Italy have suffered.

Mr Zanni, speaking on France 24, said there is a growing bloc within the European Council willing to vote against Brussels to highlight the plight of the project’s smaller members.

He said: “The governments of Poland, Hungary and maybe the Czech Republic, in the future, could create a bloc inside the Council which will oppose and create a convergence in opposing some EU policies, for example, immigration.

“It’s a clear possibility, and it’s a sign that European people are switching to the so-called eurosceptic parties because they are proposing that are creating response to the three major crisis that European people are living – the economic crisis, the immigration crisis and the internal security crisis.

“To me, that is the main reason why people are voting for and giving support to eurosceptics.”

Brussels is facing a huge backlash with southern European countries leading the charge against the European project.

Italy, Greece and Cyprus are now the leading hubs of euroscepticism, according to the ‘Parlemeter’ survey carried out by the European Parliament.

In total 27,881 EU nationals were asked during face-to-face interviews: “Taking everything into account, would you say that your country has on balance benefited from or not from being a member of the EU?”
