Australian candidate has trouble with own policy

As the Australian general election campaign begins to gather steam, Liberal party candidate Jaymes Diaz has endured a cringeworthy TV interview after having trouble answering questions about his own policies.

During an interview with Network Ten, Mr Diaz says that the coalition government has a six-point plan to stop the flow of boats carrying asylum seekers.

But when asked to outline the six points he appears to have difficulty in remembering any of them.

Lynton Crosby who works for the Conservative party in Britain, was the former campaign director for the Australian Liberal party.
