The Australian Prime Minister's office accidentally sent a confidential document to a journalist instead of sending the document to its own coalition's member of parliament (MP's). The thought behind the document was to set up the Australian government's Liberal-National Party alliance members for Monday's resumption of Parliament. Instead of sending the confidential talking points its own MPs, the confidential document was sent to journalists and media outlets present in the country including Xinhua.

The email suggested the members of the party address fears of worker exploitation

In another part of the document, the email suggested the members of the party address fears of worker exploitation Down Under, after official statistics recently confirmed an all-time high number of asylum seekers have arrived in Australia by air for the past five years. The document said that Labour Party claim to be concerned about worker exploitation, yet when they were toward the end in government they decimated the Fair Work Ombudsman's funding by more than 20 million Australian (13.57 million U.S. dollars) dollars, cut their staff by 23 percent and had no arrangement to protect vulnerable workers. Prime Minister Scott Morrison is yet to comment on the matter. On the other hand, Attorney-General Christian Porter downplayed the gaffe telling international media that these types of things occur from time to time in the modern world of politics.
