Boris is under pressure as senior Conservatives back Lord Frost’s enraged critics.
Former Brexit Secretary David Davis backed Lord Frost’s criticism of Boris Johnson, insisting that the Prime Minister must “be a True Conservative” to remain in power.
Mr Davis backed Lord David Frost, the now-former Brexit Minister who resigned in December 2021 due to disagreements over the Tory-led Plan B vote.
After securing Red Wall voters’ support in the last general election, the former Brexit Secretary insisted that the focus now must be on delivering for them.

“And one-quarter complained about Corbyn’s anti-patriotism, which is related to Murray in a way, Douglas Murray.”
“They were mostly ex-soldiers who despised IRA ties and similar nonsense.”
“Obviously, getting Brexit done was a huge part of our success.”
“A second big element was the expectation that we wouldn’t raise taxes,” Mr Davis continued.
“And we’d run the economy with greater caution than any Labour Party.”
