HELP: Australian light wiring confusion

Long time reader, first time writer!

I’ve bought a new place and it’s a Sunday morning I accidentally smashed a light. Ducked up to Bunnings to try and replace he glass part but they don’t have anything similar so the Bunnings fellow convinced me that this DIY light fitting was easy. I used to do electrical studies at school and remember basic circuitry so I thought it would be fine but it wasn’t what I was expecting.

I thought I was undoing line earth and neutral and then feeding those back into the holes on the new light. Unfortunately this light has 2 neutrals going into separate holes on the light and this new light only has one neutral.

Before I blow something up can anyone give me advice on what to do with the second neutral?
