With Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak campaigning doggedly in the face of Mr Johnson’s resignation last month, his former adviser Baron Moylan – formerly Daniel Moylan – said: “The civil service has got to be an organisation which embraces change, especially Brexit. “And it isn’t – it’s brought up to embrace keeping everything the way that it is.

“It’s been very happy doing that, as well as taking its directions from Brussels for 50 years.”

Brexit Opportunities minister Jacob Rees-Mogg this week launched a wide-ranging review to investigate whether civil servants were implementing the decisions of ministers properly, to be chaired by ex-Trade Minister Lord Francis Maude.

Lord Moylan added: “Jacob is completely right. I haven’t got a clue what the solution is, but then Jacob is paid to find solutions, not me.”

    Boris Johnson is “not letting up” to ensure that Britain benefits from Brexit and trade deals up to the final day of his Premiership, sources have revealed.

    The revelation comes as representatives of Morocco met with officials from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) to help work out a pre-trade deal between Britain and the North African monarchy.

    The talks were said to be part of Mr Johnson’s desire that Britain moves as quickly as possible to maximise the benefits of Brexit and does not relax while a successor is chosen.

    A senior Conservative source told Express.co.uk: “The PM wants no let up in delivering on Brexit opportunities and getting trade deals in place.”

    Blob STILL plotting to derail Brexit, warns Johnson ally

    Britain’s incoming Prime Minister will have to face down recalcitrant plotters within the Whitehall “blob” who are STILL focused on derailing Brexit, an ally of current PM Boris Johnson has warned.

    With Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak campaigning doggedly in the face of Mr Johnson’s resignation last month, his former adviser Baron Moylan – formerly Daniel Moylan – said: “The civil service has got to be an organisation which embraces change, especially Brexit.
