Eurosceptics raising their profile with scandals

Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker must face a no-confidence vote in the EU Parliament on Thursday in the wake of the Luxembourg Leaks affair. Although none of the large parliamentary groups are behind the motion tabled by far-right groups, they must be more wary of the Eurosceptics, the online portal euinside warns: "The big groups take their majority too much for granted. They don't want to admit that the Eurosceptic, xenophobic and nationalistic parties are still on the rise and that they could even achieve a majority in the next EU Parliament. ... That would pose an enormous problem because these parties don't offer any alternatives. They're simply against everyone and everything. But  they rely on scandals and in contrast to the traditional parties this helps them get the media on their side."
