EU membership is 'disastrous' for UK, says Chris Grayling

Remaining within the European Union under the UK's current membership terms would be "disastrous", Conservative minister Chris Grayling has said.

Writing in The Telegraph, the leader of the Commons wrote that the EU was heading towards closer integration - a path the UK "will not and should not follow".

It is being seen as the first sign of a minister preparing to campaign to leave the EU in the UK's referendum.
