According to the Telegraph, Lord Frost claims the only way Boris Johnson can save his premiership is if he changes the government’s current high tax economic policy.

Lord Frost states, the only way Boris Johnson will save his premiership and the government is if he reverses his high tax economic policies. 

After being asked, if Boris Johnsons vote of confidence win is enough to save his position as Tory leader, Lord Frost says, “Yes. I think actually both sides need to respect the result.”

“The Prime Minister’s opponents have got to accept the fact that he won and his supporters and the Prime Minister himself I think have got to accept that a change of policy is needed, that the vote last night, when nearly 150 of your own MPs vote against you that is a sign of a big problem and I think the big problem is that we are delivering an economic policy that is not going to deliver prosperity and wealth and if we can change that, if he can change that then he can get onto a different path and save the premiership and the Government.”

“I would. I think he should. I think all the tax rises that we brought in and the corporation tax ones that are due to come in soon ought to be reversed.”

“It is not Conservative to be raising taxes and it is undermining growth and prosperity.”

“We need to improve productivity and investment, not weaken it, so I think that is the path he should be going down and there are quite a few other things too.” 

“The Government’s economic policy particularly, though not only that, has drifted away from where the core of the supporters and voters and membership want to go and we need to get back to it.”
