You've probably read a lot about the state of Australian politics lately. Well, get ready to read a whole lot more, because things are just getting warmed up.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says he will call a double dissolution election on July 2, if a special sitting of parliament on April 18 does not pass a controversial set of industrial relations laws.
Those laws would re-introduce two things: the Australian Building and Construction Commission and the Registered Organizations Commission.

Still confused? Don't worry, because some Aussies feel the same.
As Jake Byrne posted on Facebook: "Can someone tell me what a double dissolution election is and why it's a huge deal? And then, if there's such a thing as a single dissolution and what that is as well? Thanks in advance."
And Dayan Warna asked, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, in a post: "Government passes senate reform legislation. Government threatens double dissolution. WHO SAW THIS COMING?"
Well, a few people did.
The two pieces of legislation have already failed to pass the Senate, and the Opposition and independents have renewed their pledges to not to pass the bills.
Under Australia's constitution, if the Senate rejects the same bill twice, the Prime Minister can request that the Governor-General to dissolve parliament.
