The Independent | Brexit: Minister appointed to negotiate Britain's withdrawal wants European Union 'wholly torn down'

The newest member of Theresa May's Brexit negotiating team has been filmed calling for the destruction of the European Union, The Independent can reveal.

In a speech to a right-wing think tank, minister Steve Baker said the EU should be "wholly torn down", before branding it an "obstacle" to world peace and "incompatible" with a free society.

Tory MPs warned Mr Baker's appointment could now risk the UK's ability to secure good Brexit terms, while Labour said it was "extraordinary" and raised a major question about the Prime Minister's judgement.
