As Al Murray would say

If we had no rules where would we be? France!
If we had too many rules where would we be? Germany!

My take on it

If we tell stupid jokes and have the ability to laugh at life where would we be? Hopefully still the UK

Apparently the bloke who came up with the suggestion was mortified that it topped the list. Did it as a joke, but jokes are a dangerous thing with the viral machine that is social media watching everything posted on the interweb. Monsieur Le Grenadier

I think Boaty McBoatface is a fantastic name for a vessel.

Who here honestly even knew we had these ships before this poll?

It has caused a huge surge of interest particularly with the younger generations which will hopefully one day convert into more students going into sciences and technology.

If the name of a boat helps then I'm all for it.

Much better than some dusty dreary old name which is totally irrelevant and doesn't capture the imagination of youngsters.

Lets face it, its not a war machine its not meant to sound imposing, adult scientists probably don't care what the name or even colour of the ship is as long as they have the facility to have one! Running Restoration Thread http://www.defender2.net/forum/post323197.html#323197

Of your last sentence, as far as the first point is concerned I always find it weird that the Navy feel a ship needs an imposing name. Surely the guns and rockets are imposing. If it makes the Sailors and the Navy happy and feel tougher, well who am I to complain?

As far as the second point, I think antartic scientists are happy if they have a beard, a good woolly pully, and some ale. Not to mention some Jesus Creepers when they're back on ship, worn with socks of course. Whistle Monsieur Le Grenadier

True but HMS Pointy Stick doesn't sound quite as battle ready as HMS Daring.

Having said that, most of them are named after rivers or Dukes so actually that point makes little sense Laughing

Good points! Thumbs Up Running Restoration Thread http://www.defender2.net/forum/post323197.html#323197

I did a short exchange visit on HMS Beaver, 'back in the day'. Shocked We army types did have a chuckle. What the Americans would make of this little ship pulling alongside the Nimitz with a name like that, I have no idea.... Rolling with laughter Monsieur Le Grenadier

HMS Defender....presumably breaks down a lot. And if anything like the leaking on the land based version, must be a full time job to prevent her from sinking... Whistle Monsieur Le Grenadier
