Today Qld goes to the polls to decide who will lead the great state for the first time, next 4 years .
It will be a tight race and many variables will come into play. Qld has reintroduced compulsory preferential voting for this election which at the time was widely tipped to help labor. One Nation whom are rightly regarded as rabid right wing ratbags by many never the less cannot be ignored. They have a strong following in rural and north Qld and could well be a thorn in the side to the major parties. Katters mob will also be in the mix.
It will be a closely run election but for what it’s worth I am tipping a labor win with a very small overall majority governing in their own right.
Annastasia Palaszczuk has repeatedly said she will not do any deals so a complete victory it will have to be for Labor.
The LNP. won’t win outright.
Nicholls isn’t well liked because of his time as treasurer with Neumans government as well as he is boring as batshit and like all libs. a arrogant tosser.
One nation will probably pick up 2 or 3 seats in north Qld. and out west and the Katters will hang on to their 2 seats.
Should be a interesting day with a celebratory drink after a Labor victory tonight.

The ATO wants us to stop paying tradies in cash because we are allegedly robbing our fellow Australians by doing that.
How about they stop howling about ordinary citizens paying someone cash to fix their taps or mow their lawns and instead decide to do something about the real tax dodgers, the 732 big companies that pay no tax at all.
This media release from the ACTU, includes a link to the whole data base, if you want to pour through a couple of thousand entries.
732 companies pay no tax, cost Australia $13.4 Billion
More torture – leading these men to believe they will be resettled when it may never happen.
Manus Island: 60 refugees to be moved to Port Moresby for US interviews

You can’t take your eyes off this government, if you do they come up with something appalling.
Yesterday. while everyone was watching the Reps, the Senate spent most of the day debating the Social Services Legislation Amendment (Welfare Reform) Bill 2017.
It’s nasty. If you want all the details –
Social Services Legislation Amendment (Welfare Reform) Bill 2017
Or you can just read Doug Cameron’s speech, here –
The government wanted it passed last night, because some of the nasties were to come into force on 1 January. It hasn’t passed, debate has been adjourned until the next sitting day. That will be 5 February.
I hope Leonie isn’t choking in the smoke that’s billowing off the 8700+ hectare bushfire in the coastal scrub just north across the river from her. The fire was 6000 hectares this morning, at latest reports it was 8700+ and its a fire that picks up in the afternoon.
I was choking last night, but today is much better. Whatever is happening there isn’t affecting this part of town much. I found ash all over the car this morning.
So far 8741 hectares have been burnt and the fire is still going. The fire is said to be ‘contained’.
The RFS worked all night on backburning, to get everything clear ahead of the expected southerly wind change. That change seems to be about to happen now. We are about to have a storm and/or some rain, so that will help, if it falls in the right places.
The High Court could decide for itself to look at s44 for all mentioned.
Wouldn’t that be fun?!
Turnbull knows he would lose a few MPs if they were to reveal all, and his government would fall. That’s why he allowed his people to treat the whole declaration process as a joke by arrogantly refusing to provide documentation. Don’t tell me there was not stack of collusion involved.
I think the High Court will agree that the Labor pollies in question really did take all treasonable steps possible to renounce dual citizenships if they can provide the paperwork to show when they submitted forms and paid the necessary fees. If that happens Turnbull will be under a lot of pressure. Pyne’s decision to make no referrals to the High Court was only ‘for the time being’, because he and Turnbulll know they just don’t have the numbers to get those referrals. They are obviously waiting for Alexander to return after a triumphal (?) win in Bennelong, then they will intend to crucify as many Labor MPs as they can.
I hope Alexander loses, even if it’s by a whisker, because that loss will totally ruin Fizza’s Christmas.
This could be interesting on Tuesday
