I'm assuming the ferry operators are well behind this abortion of an idea.

This utter fucking bullshit idea being rolled out again.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/feb/14/rail-bosses-revive-plan-to-build-tunnel-from-scotland-to-northern-ireland

Is this just something someone has to propose in February now?

February 2022: Cable car from Scotland to Northern Ireland. £20m spent on consultants to look into.
February 2023: Star Trek style transporter at both ends, with £1bn given to a firm recommended by a Tory MP to look into this.

Great takedown of why this is such a stupid, impractical idea here (and most of the rest of the thread):

It's just Boris trying to make the Unionists feel better and trying to keep Scotland aboard.

Any such crossing would be better going Holyhead to Dublin, as discussed last year in this thread. :)

Boris Johnson’s plan to build three tunnels under the Irish Sea connecting in an “underground roundabout” beneath the Isle of Man has been described as “batsh*t” by Johnson’s senior aides

Getting more and more desperate with his distractions from his COVID performance. Either that or he's planning to build a whole world under the Irish Sea.

It doesn't make any sense as a unionist ploy anyway. We have an actual land connection with England and that's not helping any so why would a tunnel help? Just a zany distraction I guess.

Maybe he's hoping to find Thomas The Tank Engine's homeland of Sodor. Frankly, who knows?

Can't Elon Musk do a tunnel? Surely all nations could join up to shout pedo at him and forget our differences.
