"Get BREXIT done"

Before the risin' sun, we fly
So many roads to choose
We'll start out walkin' and learn to run
(And yes, we've just begun)

More Borisismus.

Boris Johnson says his plan for a bridge from Scotland to Northern Ireland ‘would only cost about £15 billion’

You have undoubtedly noticed that the last name of the architect contains the letters dup. Coincidence?

Does the price include costing for the border check points ?

Of course not; politicians - like software developers - only remember the middle part and not front end and back end. So a rule-of-thumb is 45 = 3X15 big ones. Never talk about estimated price with architects!

And they will need to build a decent motorway in Northumbria and Galloway and from Larne to Dundalk. The last 40 miles to Stranraer is an ordeal.

Anyways, the DUP are too late .. the train has left the station; they are in deep water.

The DUP would not be the DUP if they did not do this. Google "Cash for Ash Scandal" and their illegal budget for the BREXIT campaign on the London Underground.

Their biggest worry is to block a 50K grant to send kids to the Donegal Gaeltacht to learn Irish.
