Under new management

It was clear from this morning's various statements that head of the Scotland government Nicola Sturgeon will be taking the baton for those parts of the UK that wish to remain integrated with the EU (she pointedly mentioned that she'd spoken to the London mayor about her plan). In particular, Nicola was clear that she wants to be sitting as an equal in the British government discussions about the managed exit, while keeping on the table a second independence referendum. Since Northern Ireland is stuck with cynical DUP veto power on its government, and significant parts of England besides London also disenchanted with Leave (e.g. Liverpool), she will have a big constituency.
