Mr Truss also visited the White shipyard in the East Cowes – the same business visited by Boris Johnson in 2019 when he was in the same position, competing to become prime minister.

As well as Wight Shipyard being one of the island’s commercial success stories, there is no doubt that the huge iconic Union flag as the backdrop played a role in selecting the location for both voyages.

During Mr Johnson’s visit he had promised to consider the Bob Seeley’s Island deal – but the deal has yet to be done.

There is no word yet on whether Ms Truss will make a similar pledge.
