The pundits are reluctant to place bets on who will win Queensland’s November 25 election. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Opposition Leader Tim Nicholls both carry a good deal of baggage.

A lot of attention is focused on Pauline Hanson’s One Nation, which has been polling strongly and might end up holding the balance of power in the new parliament.

The Adani coal mine project has been centre-stage early in the campaign, with the Labor government saying it would veto any financing from the federal Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility for the venture’s rail line.

During two days in Brisbane, Michelle Grattan spoke to Griffith University political scientist Anne Tiernan, Deputy Premier Jackie Trad, Shadow Treasurer Scott Emerson, Queensland One Nation leader Steve Dickson, and The Courier-Mail’s national affairs editor Dennis Atkins.
