How will a tunnel get rid of the problems caused by Brexit? Goods still have to cross the gap it is just the method of delivery that would be different.

Well if Alister Jack is supporting it what more can you say except...who?
Notwithstanding Brexit, the simplest and cheapest way to link Scotland to Ireland and to increase traffic is to introduce Road Equivalent Tarrif on the existing ferry routes, as is already in place on many of the island routes.

Don't be a pillock. Logical, common-sense solutions are sooo last century.

It was likened in length to the channel tunnel.

Does anyone know how deep the respective stretches of water are?

Maybe Fionn mac Cumhaill can provide some advice?

I'm just wondering how many backhanders the Tories will get from handing their mates lucrative contracts for related works without being put out to competitive tender. And since Brexit and the Pandemic have caused the biggest sudden drop in UK's GDP in history where the money will be coming from for yet another un necessary mega project. And where are the skills coming from now that EU people are no longer welcome and our own people have been wasting their time getting degrees in IT and media studies, etc.

Thanks. Dr Wiki says the channel is 120 metres - so I guess the new tunnel is approx 3 times the depth.

Gavin Williamson's neighbour sells fireworks. Maybe he can clear the ordinance?

@Aardvark - nowt wrong with IT!
