Uncle Malcolm’s office hands out confidential email addresses

The prime minister’s department has blamed an “administrative error” for inadvertently distributing the email addresses of thousands of women who had registered on a “confidential” government database for women seeking appointment to government boards or decision-making bodies.

From the office of the man whom invented the internet (Thanks for that one Tony – it’ll never get old).

Instead of using an email distribution tool or having someone who knows how to send an email properly the PM’s office has apparently pasted in a few thousand email addresses into the “To:” field.

I have no issues with these people having access to my meta data whatsoever. /sarcasm
