Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

As @BorderIrish remarked, it would be funny if one day, that bridge ended up joining two EU countries at the UK"s expense.

No doubt he will then try to sell us the bridge, in the form of taking over some proportion of the UK national debt. Good luck with that.

But this is a typical Johnson "dead cat" strategy.

Stop people talking about what you would rather they didn't discuss (a N. Ireland only Backstop) by throwing a dead cat on the table and saying: "Oh look, a dead cat! Let's discuss that instead!"

A Bridge from nowhere in Scotland to nowhere in Ireland has about as much chance of becoming a reality as Johnson has of reviving a dead cat, when the whole point is that it is dead in the first place...
