I know, the bridge/tunnel was crazy. Northern Ireland uses a different rail gauge to the rest of the UK; the tunnel would need to be electrified - but the railways on either side are not electrified; and the line linking the SW of Scotland to the main arterial routes is little more than a branch line. God only knows what the total cost of this boondoggle would have been.
And all the time, the Republic is building new infrastructure to link its ports directly to the EU without having to transit through the UK. And good luck to them.
Frost’s speech will have done wonders for the case of uniting Ireland. I just hope that the dinosaur-denying nutters in the DUP will haemorrhage support for their denial of reality - and that the majority of that support moves towards the centre rather than to even more extreme ‘unionist’ parties who are still umbilically-linked to terrorism.
