Charles Grant, director of the Centre for European Reform, reported in June after a visit to Paris speaking to officials that "British-French relations are still dire".

"All French fed up that Johnson, Truss and their briefers keep saying 'French soft on Ukraine' when in substance UK and France have [the] same position," he tweeted.

"Truss treats the diplomatic world as if it were the Tory party conf [conference], always playing to the gallery," he quoted one diplomat as saying.
