BREAKING NEWS: Zahawi says Britain must leave the EU
" I am uncomfortable with a situation in which our laws are sometimes made by those the British people cannot throw out, while British Ministers must accept them.
"I am uncomfortable when European law takes precedence over British law, and European judges are more important than our own. I am uncomfortable when we are tied to a project determined to create a new currency that has struggled to stay afloat and has taken away yet more sovereignty and choice from its citizens to keep it on life support.
"There are some extremely unattractive figures campaigning to leave the EU, from George Galloway to Nigel Farage and it pains me to be dragged towards them on any issue.
"However the blame lies with the EU, which has fought as hard to remain blind to the chance for change, as the Prime Minister has fought to help them see."
The in-out referendum will take place in June.
