A few weeks ago I wrote about the British Government’s shortsightedness in deciding NOT to name their new £200 million research ship, Boaty McBoatface.
As was expected, they went with ‘Sir David Attenborough’.
However, in a bid to appease popular opinion, they decided the onboard sub, would be given that name.
No seriously, read this …
Now while we could sit back and celebrate a small win for the people, the fact of the matter is:
+ The momentum for Boaty McBoatface has gone, which means so has the potential for this boat to help solve environmental conditions rather than just report on them.
+ Surely it should be called Subby McSubface?
Which all goes to show, the Government we elect – or should I say, the majority elect – don’t give a fuck about us, happily treating us as fools by giving us ‘small wins’ to occupy us as they destroy everything that helps the majority of society cope, hope and function.
Jesus, this is waaaaaay too political for a Monday morning.
On the positive, I’m off to Tokyo and LA this week, so this will be the last post till Friday.
[George, Pete, Baz … prepare for me to demand dinner. On your dime]
I know I’ve said that before and then haven’t been able to resist writing something in-between, but I’m actually going to be super-busy.
Oh god, why am I writing it, it’s not like anyone cares. Or even reads what I write.
Till Friday then …
