Britain starts acting like Russia
Boris starts action on high-speed rail.
I'd been wondering if this would happen, but didn't hold out much hope. Now that the three-year Wagner opera is finished, now that the fat lady actually and surprisingly sang, Britain is starting to GET SHIT DONE. Boris is starting to act like Putin and sound like Putin, starting to build Russian-style stuff.
There was a time many decades ago when railroads were the epitome of British-style stuff. Britain invented railroads, Britain was the premier shit-done-getter. Now Russia and China are the shit-done-getters, so Britain has to re-learn from Russia and China.
