Boris and Coveney clash over plan for bridge in Irish Sea Tanaiste Simon Coveney has become embroiled in a bizarre war of words with former UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson over whose idea it was to build a bridge between Scotland and Northern Ireland. Speaking ahead of a major business and leadership summit in Dublin this week, Mr Johnson exclusively told the Sunday Independent the Tanaiste came to him with the idea of building a 35km-bridge across the Irish Sea.

“That is entirely a matter for Ireland and if you choose to insist on every lorry and orders coming from the UK to be checked in that way, that’s a matter for you,” he said.
