Back within the UK, Liz Truss will be the fourth Conservative Prime Minister that Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will work alongside.
Speaking to broadcasters this afternoon, the SNP leader extended an invitation for Truss to come to Edinburgh.
Sturgeon said despite political differences she hoped to work “constructively” with the new Conservative leader.
Perhaps comments from earlier in the leadership contest when Truss called Sturgeon an “attention-seeker” can be swept aside?
Sturgeon wants to hold another independence referendum in the coming months, but Truss opposes the idea of another vote.
Even so, it’s hard to see how the relationship between these two politicians could get much worse than the one that existed between Sturgeon and Boris Johnson.
In her victory speech, Liz Truss said Johnson was “admired from Kyiv to Carlisle”.
Sturgeon suggested this was an “honest reflection” of Johnson’s lack of popularity north of the border.
