Labour MP Gisela Stuart: UK should leave European Union

Help

A Labour MP said the UK should leave the EU as the union's core members were set to bind closer together to save the euro, meaning the status quo was "not sustainable".

German-born Gisela Stuart said the EU has "changed and it keeps changing", adding that "something will give over the next few years and we [had] better starting thinking about it".

The Birmingham MP claimed German leaders were "throwing good money after bad" to keep Greece in the euro ahead of Germen elections in 2013.
