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!

Yes, online polls. People being so human.
Boaty McBoatface for president!
May be better than some of our current options. More utilitarian.
