    Whitlam knew that his left wing policies were unpopular and he would loose at a general election. Therefore he tried to hang on to power in anticipation that the opposition will give up the demands for a new election. As a result he bankrupted the country. The opposition had no other choice but to force a double dissolution and new elections. Whitlam lost miserably.PS: Just give a few more months to Kevin 07 and he will do the same.
