NI deserves quick link to families in rest of UK
Christmas is a timely reminder of the importance of families and friends across the country at large.
Never mind the very strong case for a Northern Ireland fixed link on grounds of logistics, freight and building a stronger UK domestic market. That is well-documented.
The equality of UK citizenship reasonably demands that friends and family in, say, London and Belfast are as seamlessly connected by fast train as, say, between London and Manchester.
