REF­ER­EN­DUM STRUG­GLES

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Queens­land will go to the polls on March 19 to de­cide on whether there should be three or four year state govern­ment terms – and the money is say­ing it’ll re­main three year terms. De­spite on­line book­maker sports­bet.com.au hav­ing the ref­er­en­dum at odds of $1.75 to pass (four year terms), a mas­sive 72 per cent of the pun­ters money is back­ing the ref­er­en­dum to fail. That fail price was orig­i­nally of­fered at $2.50 but has since been backed into $2 with Sports­bet. “The polling and our odds may say it’s go­ing to be a close call but the pun­ters cer­tainly think it’s an over­whelm­ing fail for the Govern­ment,’’ said sports­bet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
