The Queensland Massacre

Brisbane Times

Exit polls are showing that Queensland Labor have been routed:

The Liberal National Party is on track for a landslide win in Queensland, with Labor to be left with 10 or fewer seats, two separate exit polls show.

The poll, for the Nine Network, gives the LNP 63 per cent of the two-party preferred vote, to Labor’s 37 per cent.

That’s a 13 per cent swing against the Bligh Labor government, leaving it with 10 or fewer seats in the 89-seat parliament.

The LNP’s primary vote was put at 51 per cent to Labor’s 26 per cent, with Katter’s Australian Party on 11 per cent.

Another exit poll, done for Sky News, showed a swing to the LNP of 15.3 per cent.

The LNP had 55 per cent of the primary vote, while Labor was on 26 per cent.

That swing would mean Labor would lose up to 44 seats if the swing was uniform across the state.

UPDATE: Looking worse for Bligh:

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
