Remember the recent poll to name the new polar research ship?
We thought ‘Boaty McBoatface’ would have been the perfect choice, however it seems the Government had other ideas. They have now rejected the suggested unique name and have decided to name the vessel in honour of a legend we cannot argue with.
‘Boaty McBoatface’ will now be named after Sir David Attenborough, days before he celebrates his 90th birthday.
Those voters in favour of ‘Boaty McBoatface’ have not fully lost out as the name will now go to a high tech remotely operated undersea vehicle.
