    I think it will be the middle of next week before a final outcome is known.
    But it looks very likely with well over 80% of votes counted that the eventual result will be
    ALP 44 seats.
    LNP 42 seats.
    OTH 3 seats.
    In that situation only the ALP could realistically form government with the support of at least one of the Others, which they now have.
    So in a week's time Queensland can expect to have a minority ALP government.
    FWIW I will lose my bet on an LNP win, but will get that back plus a bit more because of winning a small wager on a hung parliament which offered quite good odds. I expected a hung parliament but with the LNP scraping back into power.
    Many members of this new government are also new to parliament and hopefully will be a breath of fresh air.
    The new unlikely Premier, who is probably still in shock, has made the right noises so far about broad consultation and moving slowly with legislation.
