Boaty McBoatface Wins Poll To Name Research Vessel

The polls have closed and the winner is.... Boaty McBoatface! Yay! Obviously the head of the Natural Environment Research Council has the final say but I am sure he will honor the choice of the people. wink

Forget the EU referendum. The major test of modern democracy has fallen into the hands of the Natural Environment Research Council آ– over the naming of a boat. As the polls finally closed for the naming of its new polar research ship, the NERC confirmed that the votes were overwhelmingly in favour of RRS Boaty McBoatface.
