2. I think anti-EU sentiment is growing

The bad things about the EU are well known & most people either don't see the advantages of EU membership or take those advantages for granted.

I think UKIP may be gaining some support, although maybe not as much as the Daily Telegraph would like you to believe. They are the equivalent of the Tea Party in the US I suppose. Very right wing and tending towards xenophobia.

As to the libertarian part, "Libertarian" is a word UKIP bandy about without any understanding whatsoever of what libertarianism actually entails.
