Former chiefnegotiator David Frost was last night hailed as the man who could win a key by-election for the Conservatives.
Tory MP Kevin Hollinrake led calls for Lord Frost to give up his peerage and stand in the Wakefield by-election, seen as a test of whether’s party can hold on to so-called Red Wall seats won from Labour in 2019.

He said: ‘His profile would be very helpful in terms of our electoral chances.’
The Thirsk and Malton MP also suggested that Lord Frost would soothe the party’s fears.
He said that as an MP, Lord Frost would ‘calm a lot of nerves and talk a lot of common sense. He would be the steadying influence we need. A lot of people are quite nervous about various things right now.’
Lord Frost declined to comment last night. But friends hinted that he could be happy to swap the Lords for the Commons. One said: ‘The House of Lords is not the place where you can do real politics. He still has so much to offer. It’s obvious the party needs a real Conservative.’ The friend added: ‘If anyone can win in Wakefield in these difficult circumstances, it’s someone with that sort of name recognition.’

Tory MP and ex-Brexit Minister Steve Baker has already said that the idea of Lord Frost in the Commons ‘is a tantalising possibility’.
He added: ‘Too few people know that it is possible to swap from the Lords to the Commons, and it is certainly worth bearing in mind.
‘But I wouldn’t blame Lord Frost if he chose not to do it this time round.’
However, Mr Baker said that he would like Lord Frost to be an MP ‘for many years’.
Tory hopes of holding on to Wakefield have also been buoyed after ex-Labour MP Mary Creagh, who held the seat for 14 years until losing in 2019, ruled herself out of standing in the by-election.
