Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The odd thing about Euroscepticism is that it's often the most aggressively Eurosceptic who are most keen to take advantage of the benefits of being in the EU.

Take (please), the Costa Brits with their depreciating Spanish villas and loud wails that their failure to learn Spanish in the five years they've been living there puts them at a disadvantage in the local job market.

Or the UKIP voting (I think) GP next door who plans to retire to Germany for the better health care.

I honestly don't know how to start negotiating with mindsets like that.
