No you can't have 'Boaty McBoatface'

Minister Pours Cold Water on 'Boaty McBoatface' Plan



The British government has been accused of “riding roughshod over democracy” after it suggested it would not endorse naming a £200 million ($283 million) polar research vessel Boaty McBoatface. The unseemly title was the winner of an online poll launched by the National Environment Research Council (NERC) to name its new polar research ship. The choice has to be endorsed by ministers.

Appearing to pour cold water on the plans, Science Minister Jo Johnson told BBC Radio Five Live on Monday: “There is a process now for us to review all of the public’s choices. Many of them were imaginative, some were more suitable than others.”

Asked what was unsuitable about the name Boaty McBoatface, Johnson said: “I think we were clear when launching the competition that we were looking for a name that would be in keeping with the mission.

Had a conversation with someone who claims solar cells are killing plants

And the funniest part is that he is a engineer.

This was while I was in North Carolina for work.

Bernie Sanders is really good at double speak

The qualified unqualified and the vote comments among other comments.

Always trying to claim the high road while attacking.
