This is who will win the state election

THERE was sad, revealing moment during the election campaign this week when Annastacia Palaszczuk admitted she had lost control of her own destiny.

It happened during what she thought was a private conversation with Rick Williams, the disgraced Labor MP from Pumicestone in Moreton Bay.

HAVE YOUR SAY BY POSTING IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW

Williams recorded the conversation not long before he was booted out of the party.

He had asked the Premier when she would be visiting his electorate to give him a little support. She sidestepped the request beautifully - and embarrassingly as it turns out.

She said: "Now party office is controlling where I go. I'm not controlling where I go".

She sounded a little wretched. She sounded disenchanted. It was as if she was explaining to Williams that she was a bit player in a cheap political melodrama.

And she is.

Palaszczuk's Labor Party is pandering to the Greens whose coal economy disruption is likely to leave us with summer blackouts.

Palaszczuk's Labor Party has also been swallowed by the union movement.

So voters are turning to One Nation. What a pity. It remains a party of hootenanny miscreants and whingers who are good at complaining at about the state of the world without proposing a rational plan to fix it.

And it gets worse. One Nation's plan to direct preference away from sitting MPs will harm the LNP more than Labor.

So I'm expecting the Palaszczuk-union caliphate to be returned to power on Saturday with One Nation's help.
