Monday Forum - What else might go wrong for the Abbott Government? An exercise in risk analysis.
Above New England .The caption reads:
"Featured on Channel 10's Eye Witness news this image was taken the first and last time my wife came storm chasing with me. As we headed over the hill on the Grafton side of Glen Innes I felt something big was about to happen so as my wife drove I put the camera out the window opened the shutter and a moment after BOOM a crossover CG (cloud to ground) bolt hit not 100m from us........needless to say my wife wanted to go home while I was screaming and fist pumping with excitement in the passenger seat . That moment I thought, "I could never capture another lightning bolt in my life and I'd be a happy man" I'm going to be sharing images over the next few night of lightning so please like our page (link above) and share this post to see more"
The photo sets the scene for today's Forum topic.
Each week, it seems, another disaster strikes the Abbott Government. Last week it was Operation Fortitude. The fall-out from that will continue this week. Then the Age reports that the Cambodia refugee deal has fallen over. If so, it is likely to get a fair political run. To top it all off, Justice Heydon announces on today whether he will continue as Royal Commissioner. Again, whatever the decision, this will attract controversy.
Now for my question. It seems to me that just about every week in recent weeks something has gone wrong for the Federal Government. What else might go wrong? This is a professional, not political question. I want to tap your views.Think of it as an exercise in risk analysis.
