There are eerily familiar comparisons to be made between now and Whitlam's demise.
We have a Governor General who has been empowered by her recent political trip through Africa.
She was appointed by the Labor PM Rudd as a pair of safe Labor hands.
The Government do not control the Senate.
The National Savings have been spent in a profligate manner.
Supply may be in peril should a Senate of which Labor is a minority refuse to pass it, when we go in to a depression.
Ministers have gone off on foreign alignments without thought to National Security or propriety..... Fitzgibbon
The Defence Force is at odds with the Government of the day.
The Prime Minister has an attitude of narcissism and is doubted by his caucus more than the electorate.
It all sets the scene for a tearful end with the GG Governor-General, making a decision on the day.
