What is there to not like about this idea.

It will only cost us a few trillion and will put us in debt for the next 800 years

The EU granted ā‚¬530m to Eirgrid merely to plan the Celtic Interconnector, a 500km long electricity/fibre optic cable linking Ireland and France, or over a million per km just to pencil it out on the back of a Homosexual packet. What it will eventually cost to complete is unknown but naturally it will be casually spoken of in multiples of a billion. Just how many ferries could be run for the same money as a tunnel is going to cost probably runs into the hundreds or thousands, so why not just provide free shipping instead? It will be at the merest fraction of the cost.

Edit: Had to laugh, I wrote 'Fa g' packet which got changed to Homosexual by the system. Gonna leave it as it is!

It might be useful if you want a system to pump millions of Africans into Ireland post Brexit but not if you want to go on your holiers to France from Dublin.

Am I missing something? this proposal is still only a ferry link not a tunnel.
And if the rest of Europe is going to have a highly subsidised rail system then Ireland should enjoy the same largess when it comes to providing an upgraded ferry connection.

There are people paid large sums to imagine up crack brained schemes like this, of course you need connections to land such a soft job of no economic or cultural benefit
