It is someone who does not believe in the economic model of the European Union (the EU). They believe many different things like their country is better off on its own, the EU is overly beaurocratic, it is not sustainable long term, it has too many member states etc. and many more.

A Eurosceptic is someone who does not believe that it is advantageous for Britain to belong to the European Union, or who at least has doubts about it. Many Conservative MPs are Eurosceptics, but there are many who are not as well.

Very Few, unless you read the Eurosceptic papers. The only one that many people may say is that, people from poorer countries like Poland are allowed to work in richer countries like France and Britain (Though equally British and French people can work in any other EU country as well). The people from the poorer countries are often employed as cheap labour. The big one is that Britain seems determined to be stubborn through everything, meaning it is hard for the EU to get anything done because the British block or veto them on the habit of principle and habit.

Since Slovakia is a member of the European Union it has good political relations with numerous countries of the Union, including Germany, France and the UK. On the other hand it, similiarly to their Czech neighbours, Slovakia has open relations with Russian Federation as well, despite EU sanctions against Russia. Slovakian membership in NATO and its strategic geographical position also mean that it maintains good relations with the USA as well, despite the fact that large amounts of the population consider themseleves eurosceptic and pro-Russian. Slovakia has a especially good relations with 3 of its 5 neighbours - Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary, despite certain disagreements with Hungary (especially from members of radical right) . Together these countries for a Visegrad Group, aka Visegrad 4 or V4 and cooperate together culturally but also in to their similiar foreign policies. Most recently they spoke out against immigration, multiculturalism, "Islamisation of Europe" and migrant quotas in the European Union in 2015.

Maybe.The European Union, with the passage of the Treaty of Lisbon, has already brought economic and foreign policy under the control a central European government, in addition to the creation of a European President and a European Foreign Affairs Minister. The European Union already has the three branches of government, the legislative being the European Parliament (EP) and the Council of the European Union (CEU), the executive being the European Commission (EC), and the judicial being the European Court of Justice (ECJ) and the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). There are already many instances of these joint European institutions overiding the power of the national governments of the member-states (e.g. Italian practice of putting up crucifixes in public schools was banned by the ECHR).There is still a ways to go, though, before Europe is completely united. Military matters and defense policy is still in the hands of national governments (although the Treaty of Lisbon gives the European Union the power to create a European defense policy with the unanimous approval of the member-states). There is also a growing eurosceptic movement, particularly in Great Britain, that is opposed to greater integration. However, most political analysts and speculators believe that the European Union will eventually become a European Federation or a United States of Europe. No one knows when, or if, it will happen, but the ingredients needed to make it happen are already there.
