Channel Tunnel makes a profit

The Channel Tunnel is finally profitable, although it’s been a long hard slog. I’m happy the Anglo-French boondoggle is starting to stand on its own two feet: despite the opportunity costs of the billions of taxpayer pounds that went into it, and its questionable impact on the northern European economy, I love that tube under the sea. It’s carried me between capitals a hundred times or more, and it’s an utterly stunning piece of infrastructure that makes me proud to be human.
