POINTS FOR DISCUSSION
The main talking point this week will be the likelihood of Tonybull choosing the Double Dissolution route. This may give him the satisfaction of getting rid of some senators he dislikes but in return it will gift him a completely unmanageable, independent-filled, Senate for three years.
To avoid this the proposed changes to Senate elections will need to be made before the DD. Should those proposals be fast-tracked we will have an early indication that it is on the cards. With no rushed movement in that direction we can conclude that this is just Malbott trying to be a bully.
