Australian federalism is under serious threat, with a Commonwealth government intent on exercising the full scope of Commonwealth power. That power may have been there for some time, but the political will to exercise it has been absent. With a majority in both Houses, all is aligned for a potentially deadly attack against what remains of the Federal system.
