    If the PM left Sydney sudenly on his way to Canberra, we should think about this. I don’t like the PM would break with tradition and call an election without visiting the GG in Canberra (even if the GG were in Sydney).

  2. Sacha says:

    What if the GG said, “no”? (Apparently the NSW Governor refused a requrest by John Fahey for an early election in 1993, althugh that might have been because of the fixed term legislation, I don’t know).

    I half-expected tonight’s news being led by John calling the election and allowing Parliament to sit for a week.
