First it was the Boris Bridge - a planned engineering wonder which appears to have lost ground recently over understandable concerns that the finished product might have to be closed for around 100 days a year due to inclement weather (Only 100 days?),

Now there's the Boris Burrow - a proposed underwater tunnel which would connect Scotland to Northern Ireland, boost trade, encourage tourism and get around (literally) that unfortunate border in the Irish Sea.

It would 'only' cost £10bn to build, would be about 25 miles in length and would facilitate cars, trains and HGV traffic. What could possibly go wrong?
