Predictions, comment and analysis

Teaming up with former Queensland premier Peter Beattie is former 9 News Brisbane political editor, Spencer Jolly. They take a look back at the week and discuss what Labor would need to do to win back the strongholds.

Dr Mark Hayes: “We’re off to the polls on January 31. Calm yourselves. The LNP will win”: CanDo Newman — a losery winner in the Queensland election?

Amy Remeikis: “The first week of the Queensland election campaign ended with a sigh, not a bang, as both sides suspended their campaigning out of respect for the families affected by the Cairns tragedy”: Gloves stay on in first week.

“After landslide victories last time, the conservative NSW and Queensland governments can expect the electoral distortion to correct itself when they head to the polls soon. But if that happens, don’t blame Tony Abbott, writes Norman Abjorensen”: State elections fought on issues, not Abbott.

Peter Beattie: “Annastacia Palaszczuk is the woman who came from nowhere, three years ago, to now be a credible chance of becoming Queensland’s next premier on January 31″: Queensland election: Nothing sure in Sunshine State’s ‘holiday’ poll.
