Europe is seeing a decade long rise in Eurosceptic parties. You may disagree with their opinions, but populist movements have been growing across Europe. These include to varying degrees: France- Front Nationale and Yellow Vests, Italy- 5 Star Movement, Holland - Party for Freedom, Austria- Austrian Peoples Party, and the major parties of Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic. There is a huge squabble over immigration. Countries refuse to accept refugees as ordered by the EU and EU imposes fines.
