Spoilsport British government won’t name $300M ship “Boaty McBoatface”

Internet users overwhelmingly voted to name the research vessel “Boaty McBoatface,” according to Josh Hafner on USA Today. Says the British government: Nope.

BBC host Nicky Campbell exclaimed that the government would “ride roughshod over democracy” if it did not go through with naming the ship “Boaty McBoatface,” which garnered 120,000 votes — four times that of the next closest choice.
