Some Time Ago,

the British Government invited the public to name a boat,

 RRS Boaty McBoatface won by a huge margin, here are the results,

RRS Boaty McBoatface - 124,109
RRS Poppy-Mai - 34,371
RRS Henry Worsley - 15,231
RRS It's bloody cold here - 10,679
RRS David Attenborough - 10,284

the British Government then did what it knows how to do best, ignore the public and back down,

but not so the enlighten government of Sweden, the Swedish rail line MTR Express had a vote for the name of a train and they are ready to go with it, "(This is) news that will be received with joy by many, not just in Sweden," MTR wrote in a statement, the train will run between the Swedish capital Stockholm and Gothenburg, the country's second-biggest city, Trainy McTrainface won 49 percent of the vote, coming in ahead of Hakan, Miriam and Poseidon, what a great idea, a government that listens to the people!
