    Boris's Latest Distraction Wheeze : A Bridge across the Channel ?


    5 Not allowed!
    BBC going big on Boris's latest idea of a bridge built to France. We can't seem to build a by-pass round Worthing or get HS2 moving so how the hell will we do this when the country is allegedly skint ? Boris has form for grand ideas that cost a packet and don't get made, see The Garden Bridge and Boris Island for examples, what a pillock.
    I had run 17 miles from Grayshades before the school leopard caught me.....

      The BBC are reporting it wrong. As if he'd be stupid enough to want to build a bridge to France, over one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.

      No, he actually wants to build a bridge to Russia, via Brazil, because these are the countries we'll be doing much more business with now that we're on our way out of the EU.

      The Channel is the busiest waterway in the world, with massive container ships passing through every day, and he wants to build a bridge! It couldn't be used when it's windy, because of the height, and security would need to be tighter than at Eurotunnel.

      He has also said, there is only one rail line to France, which is incorrect, as there are three tunnels. Northbound, southbound and the middle safety tunnel.

      He is a buffoon.

      There actually isn't any direct quote of Boris saying this. A report about his musing in private really isn't the same as a policy statement. Typical BBC bias reporting.

      Anyone seen reported that the NHS are now saying that the winter crisis is going and they coping well? It's tucked away at the end of their online report on flu, but instead of headlining it like they did when it started it doesn't even get a mention in the news.

      Just think, if built, it'll generate more personel for the bridge navy!

      Brexit means Brexit though and the Dover MP thinks it's a great idea too - Dual The A2, Lorry parks off the M20, a lower Thames crossing and now a bridge to France! Who needs fruit farms and pesky migrant farm workers in Kent when there's all that going on.

      Each to his choice, and I rejoice the lot has fallen to me
      In a fair ground-in a fair ground -
      Yea, Sussex by the sea!

      Far be it from me to stand up for the BBC, but it was mentioned on the Ten O'Clock news last night, with an interview with an A&E doctor.
