The Conservatives will struggle to win the next election unless it does more to attract ethnic minority voters, former Tory party chairman Baroness Warsi has warned.
Lady Warsi - who resigned from the government over the Government's policy on Gaza - said the Tories were ignoring "electoral reality" by not widening its appeal across Britain.
"But the electoral reality is that we will not win outright Conservative majorities until we start attracting more of the ethnic vote."
