Supercars confident of new Pukekohe deal

  Supercars confident of new Pukekohe deal Supercars is confident of inking a fresh three-year deal to race at Pukekohe, despite the lack of an official announcement this weekend. With the circuit listed on the calendar for next season, and this the last year of the current three-year deal, there were suggestions that a new deal between the track and the series could be confirmed this weekend.While that has proved not to be the case, Supercars CEO James Warburton reckons there are no surprises on the horizon, and that a new deal – in line with the three-year deal with sponsor ITM announced earlier this year – is just weeks away.

But that would not prevent some backlash from LNP Liberals, particularly in the south-east corner, who could face soft, small-l liberal voters' dissatisfaction with any One Nation deals . Senator Pauline Hanson with ex- LNP One Nation recruit Steve Dickson.

LNP candidate at the election,” he told Channel 7. Did he almost say LNP - One Nation there for a moment? The LNP leader answered: “There are no good choices when it comes to preferences there’s no deal , no coalition, no room at the Cabinet table”.

Is it time to fix your power costs?

  Is it time to fix your power costs? Few moments can induce greater sweaty-palmed terror in householders then approaching the letter box and finding inside a bill from the power company. Depending on which state you live in prices rose up to 20 percent on the first of July. And this at a time when wages are increasing at less than two percent on average.No wonder our greatest worry as a nation is power prices.But there is a little-used option to keep your power prices locked in. Fixed-rate energy plans mean you pay the one rate for power over the life of the contract.

One Nation 's presence during the last two state elections has kept the WA Liberals and Queensland LNP out of office. We have all been here before. Yet the Coalition appears to be wracked by differences about how to deal with One Nation .

As Labor looks likely to win the Queensland election, some former conservative MPs are blaming in part the merger of Queensland's Liberal and National parties, and their favourable preferencing of One Nation .

Liberal National Party Leader Tim Nicholls has refused to commit to accepting One Nation's support if the minor party holds the balance of power after the Queensland election.

One Nation is polling strongly in individual electorates across the state, and could find itself in the position of kingmaker if it picks up a predicted handful of seats in the November 25 poll.

Mr Nicholls has repeatedly ruled out forming a coalition with One Nation but on Monday again refused to address such questions, claiming "regular Queenslanders" weren't interested in "political games."

"I've been asked that question plenty of times, my position has always been that we are going into this contest to win," he told reporters.

"We are focused on delivering majority government and the LNP is the only party that will be able to bring about majority government that will bring about the change that Queenslanders want."

Further evidence emerges in relation to claims about discussions of a private deal between One Nation and the LNP ahead of the next Queensland election.

Labor has ruled out any deal with One Nation which is shaping as the party which could hold the balance of power if the ALP or the LNP cannot win government in their own right. "We're in this to win it

Mr Nicholls also refused to name the six seats he believed the party could pick up to reach the magic number of 47 seats which would grant him a majority in the new 93-seat parliament.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk repeated her concerns on Monday that a vote for One Nation was a vote for the LNP and vice-versa.

"If you want chaos, vote for One Nation and Tim Nicholls together. If you want stability, you're looking at it," she told reporters in Townsville

The opposition leader travelled to the Sunshine Coast on Day 16 of the campaign to announce $215 million to build the Sunshine Coast Hospital Link Road.

Mr Nicholls said the previous Newman government had committed to building the link, but the Palaszczuk government hadn't picked it up over the last three years.

The link road will cost $430 million in total, with the federal government to pick up the difference, and Mr Nicholls insisted his federal counterparts were "keen" to support the project.

Mr Nicholls earlier apologised again to Queenslanders for his actions while treasurer in the Newman government, which saw 14,000 public servants sacked.

Asked on ABC radio if he had a personal credibility problem, Mr Nicholls said he'd made amends.

"I've apologised and admitted and taken responsibility for my role in the previous government, as I think I should," he said.

Monday also marked the official start of voting, with pre-polling opening, which traditionally favours conservative parties.

But Mr Nicholls said it wouldn't affect the way he campaigned.
