New Sydney ferry to be named Ferry McFerryface

New Sydney ferry to be named Ferry McFerryface

The results are in and Australians have chosen Ferry McFerryface as the official name for one of the iconic Sydney Harbour ferryboats, according to the New South Wales Public Transport Facebook page.

Boaty was the notable title Brits voted to call a United Kingdom research vessel past year, so Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said they went for Ferry McFerryface instead.

Sydney residents have been encouraged for the past year to name the six new ferries through the Name Your Ferry website and more than 15,000 responded.

Australia's most populous city is getting a new fleet of inner harbour ferries, one of which, due to an online naming poll, will be Ferry McFerryface.

The newly-christened Ferry McFerryface will join three other ferries named in the competition, called Victor Change, Catherine Hamlin and Fred Hollows.

Russia's RT America registers with DOJ as a foreign agent
While this is technically true under the law, harsh enforcements under Foreign Agents Registration Act are rare, experts say. RT was singled out in a January intelligence community report for the impact it may have had on the 2016 USA election.

The original Boaty McBoatface vote ended with the vessel being named RSS Sir David Attenborough, with a smaller submersible taking the title.

While others said the name makes a mockery of the distinguished Australians who have their names on the ferries.

The cultural impact of Boaty McBoatface has been felt across the world, with a train in Sweden being named Trainy McTrainface and a horse at Sydney's Warwick Farm racecourse being named Horsey McHorseface.

The name "Boaty McBoatface" comes from a public poll the Natural Environment Research Council put to the people of Britain in 2016 to name a $342 million research vessel.
