QUEENSLAND ELECTION

Tonight is an extraordinary result for Annastacia Palaszczuk and her Labor team.

 

While the final outcome is still not known, tonight's remarkable results happened against all odds.

 

Against a party with 80 more seats in parliament. Against a party with a war chest of funding for advertising. Against a government with incumbency and a Liberal Government in Canberra.

 

This was truly a David and Goliath battle - and Annastacia Palaszczuk has brought Goliath to his knees.

 

It was a privilege to campaign alongside Annastacia Palaszczuk and so many Labor candidates in Queensland this month.

 

Throughout regional Queensland and greater Brisbane, I heard people say they were sick of Campbell Newman and Tony Abbott's cuts and broken promises.

 

While Campbell Newman tried to hide Tony Abbott, the Prime Minister was front and centre every day of this campaign.

 

Tony Abbott and his Ministers refused to talk to Queenslanders - and the Liberal National Party has paid the price tonight.
