He already has the design worked out:

This will definitely happen, just like the airport on the Thames estuary, the 'oven-ready' Brexit deal, the world-beating track and trace, the check's in the post, I won't come in your..

And under Douglas Prom. Apparently.

If the roundabout is under the IOM, presumably it’ll be subject to Manx jurisdiction, including rules on isolation.  I imagine our plans for this are well advanced, with day 1, 6/7 and 13 covid testing while drivers are held in a circulating holding pattern until either being released to NI or signposted back to Liverpool.

It's a brilliantly dopey idea.

But why build the roundabout under the island? That makes no sense. Why not above ground?

Because if it was above ground the DOI would turn it into a race track or insist on laying horse tram tracks or turn it into 57 mini-roundabouts or build the entire thing in Chinese granite or decide not to have a speed limit but to use sleeping policemen instead.

Don't give them ideas with a horse tram to Heysham.

Poor things'd be knackered by the time they got there.

this fucking idiot is getting exactly what he wants, using his buffoonery to distract the DM reading voters from whatever bullshit he's going to spout tomorrow.

Well it's knocked "Isle of Man Covid free" off the top of the search engines.
