Our Prime Minister, Kevin Hudd. What's in a name? No Dutch treat, here!

Don’t blame the journalist. A sub-editor has obviously not had any family migrate to Australia or back-pack here.
The journalist, in Sydney, sent a perfectly fine piece to be published in the Dutch newspaper, De Volkskrant but now the good Dutch folk may be confused about who replaced Mr Howard at our recent elections.
The sub-heading on page five, of the 31 March edition, freely translated, says:
Premier Hudd does not follow the United States unthinkingly.
Later in the article the correct spelling is kept (Rudd) but the wrong one appears again, towards the end.
Once again, it wasn’t the correspondent’s fault!!
But then again, didn’t the American media get Mr Howard’s name wrong, at one stage?
