MPs are linking their work emails to Apple devices. UPDATE: attorney general George Brandis de-links email from work account.
It effectively means anyone can send an iMessage to Mr Brandis, who has been leading the government’s controversial mandatory metadata collection efforts.
A list of government MPs that have emails linked to iMessage include, health minister Sussan Ley, environment minister Greg Hunt, industry and science minister Ian Macfarlane, justice minister Michael Keenan, Nationals MP Luke Hartsuyker, Liberal MP Bob Baldwin and the prime minister’s parliamentary secretary Christian Porter.
They all have their work emails linked to Apple’s iMessage app.
