Considering the social issues that have arisen with the Channel Tunnel, not to even consider the structural cost overruns and engineering issues, I think the last think the UK needs is to create another tunnel - let Ireland build one and close the border.

Again, China is decades behind the world. Europe used to have its Concorde civilian airplane that  ...

But this "flying train" project has nothing to do with "planes" which is why it's called "flying TRAIN" as in a magnetically levitated TRAIN traveling inside an air-vacuum tube similar to Elon Musk's Hyperloop project.

The "flying TRAIN" is called a "metaphor" because the TRAINS are supposed to levitate magnetically across a vacuum tube. But they're TRAINS not PLANES. So your example of Concorde as a "flying PLANE" at MACH 2 speeds has no relevance whatsoever to the proposed "flying TRAIN". End-of-story.
