Some of my centre-left friendsin Australia have been talking about forcing a double dissolution election by denying supply to the Government in the Senate. 

I would if I were in the Parliament vote against Abbott's Budget of Entitlement for the Rich. 

However without a mass campaign on the streets and in the workplaces - specifically shutting Australia down - forcing a double dissolution won't of itself politicise the masses and may not see the bastards kicked out. 

The real task is to win those threatened and angry to the side of direct action. Then we can talk about parliamentary games.
