    Crisis in the Commonwealth
    -A Prisoner of Westminster No More-

    As the Cold War raged on against Red Europe the Commonwealth became more integrated and more centralized in Westminster.
    All Anglo political parties had alternating love/hate relationship with the union depending on whether they were in power or not.
    The Australian Labor party had been out of power for quite some time and had a growing tendency of Commonwealth-skepticism which blamed the increasing restriction of liberties on the long Conservative held Westminster.
    By the late 1960s the Coalition government was on its last legs resulting in a near loss in 1969 but was kicked out of power in 1972 under Leo Mckern.
    Mckern a prominent member of the Labor Left rose through the party due to his connections and oratory skills and intially got into parliament after being fielded when Grayndler former MP Daly defected to the DLP.
    Once in power Mckern announced that Australia would work to leave the Commonwealth and strengthen ties with America and Asia.
    Such efforts were hastened when the Lavender Affair occurred.

    Seizing on the momentary fascination with PR, here's it implemented here.
    PoD - Joh stays out of the '97 campaign.

    MAYHEM DOWN UNDER

    1983-1991: Bob Hawke (Labor)

    1983 (majority) def. Malcolm Fraser (Liberal/National Coalition)
    1984 (majority) def. Andrew Peacock (Liberal/National Coalition)
    1987 (majority) def. John Howard (Liberal/National Coalition) [1]
    1990 (majority) def. Andrew Peacock (Liberal/National Coalition), Janine Haines (Democrats) [2]
    1991-1993: Paul Keating (Labor)
    1993-19??: Paul Keating (Labor Minority with Democrats and Independent) [3]
    1993 (minority) def. John Hewson (Liberal/National Coalition), Janine Haines (Democrats)




    [1] With Peterson staying out of the election Howard makes gains as opposed to OTL, he however still is toppled by Peacock.
    [2] The Democrats' push for the lower house works out and Haines seizes the seat of Kingston.
    With this success they also aim to force the major parties for PR voting reform.
    [3] Labor's growing unpopularity looked like it was going to completely topple them but with
    a few slip ups from the opposition they ended up in the most opportune position when a hung parliment occurred. Negotiations for support from Haines and one other independent would entail the lessening of
    cuts to the budget and the implementation of Proportional Representation.

    ~I strolled up to my local bookstore looking for a good read and then I found one~


    -BRITAIN INCORPORATED-

    The best-selling Frederick Forsyth novel now being made into a film.

    A devious plot is set in motion to bring the industrial republic under the control of international corporations but one mercenary stands in their way.



    Utterly obscene, an affront to our democracy.

    Beyond Beazley and Latham

    After the 2004 election turns out slightly better for Labor Beazley doesn't secure enough votes from independents in the Labor caucus resulting in a near loss.
    With such a public loss attributed the Labor right the left starts making moves to oust Latham,
    coalescing behind Lindsay Tanner. This prompts the Labor right to get behind the soft-left faction lead by Martin Ferguson to ward their socialist left colleagues off.
