Queensland labor has always had strong support, and while Queenslanders were obviously looking for a change, it looks as though Labor is facing obliteration NSW style.

What has changed so drastically?

The answer is simple, Federal Labor happened, between the carbon tax lie, the pokies backflip, the boats, and the myriad of Labor policy disasters, the labor brand has the same cache as Enron, Tepco and other infamous organisations.

But the single greatest betrayal of the Australian Electorate is the broken carbon tax promise, that is going to put thousands out of work and increase the cost of living for everyone.

Queensland does not forget, and I will enjoy the humiliation of Labor on TV tomorrow.

After 20 yrs of Labor (or 'Liberal', or whatever) - I would not be surprised of any incumbent government's loss.

I'm with you SM, at last, an election won, not lost.

Don't expect much response from the labor die hards though.

Iím not sure thatís right, Shadow Minister. How strongly do people relate state Labor to Federal Labor, I wonder?

Are they really going to kick Bligh out because of Federal Laborís perceived stuff-ups?

I canít see it.

Bligh will go simply because her government hasnít performed to the satisfaction of the people, as is the case with all governments after one or two terms, except for those who implement gerrymanders a la Bjelke Petersen.

The really unfortunate thing is that Newman has nothing significantly better to offer. But that doesnít seem to matter to the Qld voters.

WA, NSW, VIC and QLD. People are slow learners but at least they are learning. Not to long to go for Illegitimate Federal Shamble.

"Don't expect much response from the labor die hards though."

Labor's own polling suggests that the attack on Campbell Newman backfired really badly, to the point of turning a loss into a rout. Not sure why the carbon tax would have much relevance.
