Nile Gardiner, foreign policy analyst and writer for the Telegraph, made the comments on Twitter after having the “pleasure” of welcoming Lord Frost to the Heritage Foundation in Washington DC. Gardiner said Lord Frost delivered a “fantastic” speech at the event in the US capital and played a “vital” role in “making Brexit a reality”.
He said: “It is a pleasure to welcome Lord Frost to a wonderful address today at The Heritage Foundation in Washington DC.
“@DavidGHFrost is a true conservative who played a vital role in delivering Brexit.
“As Margaret Thatcher imagined, Britain is once again a sovereign nation.”
This comes as the former Brexit minister admitted he was ready to run for a seat in the House of Commons during a GB News interview with Nigel Farage.
However, the pair turned down an offer from the former Brexit Party leader to run in the upcoming Tiverton and Honiton midterm elections.
An election is expected in the summer on the Devon seat vacated by Neil Parish.
Parish resigned after being reported for watching pornography while in the House of Commons while surfing the internet on his phone looking for tractors.
Lord Frost told the former UKIP leader that the House of Lords was not a “bright place” to do “royal politics”.

“But if in the future the opportunity arises and the party wants me to do that, obviously I would be ready to step out of the chair and do proper politics again.”
Lord Frost also criticized Foreign Ministry officials who still mourn Brexit six years after the referendum.
He said: “I think it’s still there, it’s definitely been watered down since 2016, people have gotten used to the idea.
“I think what people are finding difficult now in government and public service is having to be in charge, when we were in the EU, you didn’t have to think.
“Now, all of a sudden, our fate is in their own hands, and they’re hesitating a little bit, this is probably highlighting some of the problems we have right now.”
