In 2018 the SNP proposed this and were keen on the idea:

In 2019 the DUP suggested this, and the SNP were open to it, but thought there would be issues.

In 2020 Boris has suggested it, and the SNP believe it to be "an unsubstantiated vanity project".

Consistent policies there from the SNP. :lol:

It's not technically feasible. Not by any rational or realistic metric.

He's a buffoon
why not?

there are quite a few bridges over water that are about long already, this would just be another one.
if there is an actual reason it can't work, maybe the weather, then fine. just telling me something is crazy don't mean anything.


edit: i searched but what i found from national geographic says it is possible, in multiple locations, https://www.nationalgeographic.co.uk/science-and-technology/2019/09/bridge-between-scotland-and-northern-ireland-what-would-it-be

What National Geogrpahic have done there is found a single engineer to explain how, in theory, it is possible. Meanwhile every other engineer is saying it is of course theoretically possible, but in no way practically possible. It's like saying we can theoretically build a structure twice as large as the Burj Al Khalifa, but practically speaking there are too many unknowns, and not realistic or necessary tight now. Too many challenges that no other construction like it has faced, namely the depth of sea bed.

I'm going to hang out with a porn star later this evening. She's a good friend of a coworker who just went out on surgery and she's staying with her while she recovers. Wife and I are going to stop by and pay a visit. She's fine as fuck too.

Who the fuck do you think you are? You know the rules as well as anybody, seeing as you’ve been on boxing forum lounges for 15 years or so. Sort yourself the fuck out and leave a pic, or at least a name.
