Nicola Sturgeon says lack of contact from Liz Truss ‘absurd’
Scotland’s first minister has said she has still not had a phone call with Liz Truss more than a month after she became prime minister.
Nicola Sturgeon told the BBC it was “absurd” and “unprecedented” that she had yet to hear from the new PM.
She added: “I don’t know whether that is arrogance, lack of respect or insecurity or whatever it is. It’s not the right way to do government in a grown up way.
“So I hope we will see a change. I’ll do my best to work with Liz Truss as constructively as possible or whoever comes after because we can’t take anything for granted in UK politics these days.”
