Yeah. I had a chuckle too. Maybe the big 3 in the Commonwealth!

I'm thinking he meant Big 3 that speak English and have white skin.

I think he meant the main three countries that have a Parliament-style government.

India is a republic, therefore doesn't fit the traditional Westminster mode.

But it is considered to be a Parliamentary system. The President being elected by the Parliament and is essentially (by convention) just acting as a figurehead like our Governor General.
It is the kind of model many Australian 'republicans' would like to see in place here.

And, Bangladesh has a parliament and is a much bigger country, in terms of population.

The "Big 3" all depends on your perspective.

Which will be the first to fall though - UK, Canada or Aus? I can't see how any of the permutations being discussed here at the moment being particularly stable for any length of time.

Sadly our Tory minority government has hung on since 2006 (with an election in between)!

India is most certainly a Westminster nation.

The outcome of the Australian election is still in doubt.

I do hope it's the UK.  But they seem to be getting along ok (mostly).

It's been more fun watching the knives come out and old scores been settled in the Labor party post election than the election campaign itself, which was such a dull affair.

I can't see any govt lasting long, even with support of the independents, the party forming govt will likely only have a majority of 1, 2 at best. I don't know why they are all saying the most important thing is stable govt. To me, that sounds like more of the same. If the Australian people had wanted that we would have voted in one of the major parties. What we what is a shake up, someone to rattle the cage, someone to be fair dinkum and actually put forward policies, argue their case.
