Lord Frost has said the can still win the next general election if they focus on Leave voters who have deserted the party.

The Tory peer warned that focusing on Remainers is “surely a losing strategy”.

He instead urged to target 2019 Red Wall voters who swung from Labour to but have since lost faith in the party.

Writing in The Telegraph, Lord Frost said: “So winning back our 2019 voters makes the difference between victory and defeat.

“Get those 2019 voters back, recreate that coalition – now disintegrating but still plausibly in being just a year ago, well beyond the departure of its supposed catalyst in Jeremy Corbyn – and we can still win.

It comes after Lord Frost last month launched his bid to become a Tory MP at the next election.

The former Brexit minister confirmed that his name has been placed on a Conservative candidate list.

Lord Frost said: “I am grateful to the party authorities for accepting my application as a potential Conservative candidate for the House of Commons, the centre of our national political life.

“I have not yet applied for any seat and am considering my next steps. Meanwhile I look forward to campaigning for the party and for Conservative principles in the months to come.”

Lord Frost, who is popular on the right of the party, has previously floated the idea that he could run to become an MP despite his peerage.

If he gains a seat in the Commons, he would have to give up his position in the Lords.
