Scotland goes independent. NI joins Ireland.

Bridge solidifies link between S and I/NI.

There is already a land link to Boston.

The Italians would fight that.

Boston was the most Leave place in the UK.

Why not a regular submarine service to Rockall

Cross the bridge. And get radiation poisoning at the same time.

But I'd be interested in seeing what realistic blueprints for construction an engineer can come up with given the notoriously unpredictable weather in the Irish sea.

Mebbe the whole thing is just a bit of attention seeking in order to get Musk to pitch for building a tunnel instead

to pitch for building a tunnel instead



Through 50 years worth of nuclear waste.

Maybe it will be adorned with Joanna Lumley's lady garden ideas.

It's a giant dead cat.

He might fall off it during the opening ceremony.

dead cat

Bozo keeps slinging them.

He should be mopping up West Yorkshire.

An end to end boring tunnel with an underwater edit floating tube bridge over Beaufort's Dyke?

edit Hire the Norwegians.

How about a cable car? He’s got form for those.

Monorail!

nemo75 - 10 Feb 2020 14:29:13 (#18 of 196)

Oooooh!

StakludKar - 10 Feb 2020 14:36:10 (#19 of 196)

China has a big long bridge so Scotland and Ireland should have one.

Isn't Ireland drifting away with plate tectonics though

SinnerBoy - 10 Feb 2020 14:36:18 (#20 of 196)

Moonrail, surely?
