PM must rule out 'politicisation of civil service" and a "league of mini-Cummings"


Mark Sedwill is being scapegoated by the Prime Minister for the disasters of the last few months.Responding to reports of Mark Sedwill's departure and possible replacement, Layla Moran MP has called on the Prime Minister to rule out a politicisation of the Civil Service.

Commenting, Layla Moran MP said: "Mark Sedwill is being scapegoated by the Prime Minister for the disasters of the last few months.

“These include the awful handling of the coronavirus crisis, the faltering Brexit deal talks and the failure to discipline Dominic Cummings. Rather than facing up to his own failures, the Prime Minister is blaming the Cabinet Secretary. 

"All this bodes very badly for a potential politicisation of the civil service. The Prime Minister must urgently rule this out. Many people are deeply fearful of a league of mini-Cummings', placed throughout the civil service, which could ruin it forever."
