security blues

So we received a confidential submission from ASIO on our latest discussion paper. They had marked it 'confidential', which in terms of a discussion paper just means "don't put it on your website" (it's not like I'm telling you any secrets here, though you're welcome to think that I am if it makes your day seem more exciting...)

However, they also sent it with a despatch advice for classified matter...why I'm not sure. This is the point at which we discover that, with all the recent changes, not one of our team has the right security clearance to receive this document. Um, yeah...

So officially we haven't received that yet. Or opened the envelope. Or seen it even. What submission? What are you talking about?
