The AustralianÂ goes to the betting markets:
Centrebet has listed the ALP, which has a 16 seat majority, as $1.05 favourite to retain office.
The Nationals-Liberal Coalition are rank outsiders at $8.
A friend writes “When was the last time your saw odds like these?”. Sounds like Springborg and Flegg have about as much chance of toppling Beattie as the Singaporean opposition have of bringing about a change in government.
