Refugees name baby Philip Ruddock

According to this ABC News piece, a family of Iraqi refugees detained in Papua New Guinea have named their newborn baby Philip Ruddock, after the immigration minister, undoubtedly condemning their son to a lifetime of playground beatings and ceaseless mockery. The story goes on to say that the family, who are still in detation, wrote a letter to Ruddock expressing their gratitude, and talks about the successful refugee policy; which all sounds like a propagandistic press release. I gather that Senator Alston's political purge of the ABC has been thoroughly successful then.
