Start Counting Down : We Are 75 Days Away From An Election

Australia's senate has handed Prime Minister his double dissolution trigger by falling to pass the government's policy to introduce it's construction watchdog.

We now appear to be heading for July election with the defeat of the bill and it's likely it will be Saturday July 2nd.

Senators Bob Day, Dio Wang, David Leyonhjelm and Nick Xenophon voted for the bill which was rejected by the opposition and remaining cross-benchers.

With the Prime Minister's popularity falling, he has one saving grace, the budget which will be handed down in May, he can't afford for it bomb.

Mark your diaries, Australia! It's going to be a long 75 days.
