    I actually laughed out loud at many of the other suggestions in that link. 'RRS What Iceberg?' was my favourite suggestion though.

    I echo the comment 'This is the kind of thing that makes me swell with unaccustomed patriotic pride'!

    This is exactly the sort of thing that makes Britain great! No wonder New Zealand voted to keep their flag the same...

    In addition, I'm pretty sure the Daily Mail will have gone into indignation meltdown over this story, so it's a 'win-win' as far as I'm concerned.

    The chap who came up with Boaty McBoatface was on TV the other day and IIRC he said that he got the idea from another suggestion that was McBoaty. But apparently, the tedious ships owners (NERC) will probably veto most, if not all, of the suggestions.

    The eu referendum will be the same.
    The government like the boat owners will not like the answer and choose the outcome. *watch this space*
