NERC chief has final say and faces dilemma between credibility of the organisation and burden of public opinion

I love online polls. Reminds me of the time Mountain Dew ran a similar naming poll for a new drink and “Hitler did nothing wrong” won out!

Here is the final tally for naming this ship:

RRS Boaty McBoatface – 124,109
RRS Poppy-Mai – 34,371
RRS Henry Worsley – 15,231
RRS It’s bloody cold here – 10,679
RRS David Attenborough – 10,284

I hope they honor the people’s wishes and name it that!
