Why would he expect to be totally denied a clearance at that or a similar level?

Its not as if it was JFK.
Reading this thread makes me feel Australian aviation has a responsibility for this accident.

Were the controllers working this aircraft pilots?

I doubt it. Had they ever experienced this scenario?

Could they appreciate what the outcome could be?

Did they help the pilot?
