Will Queensland ever get daylight saving?

Now that the dust has settled on the state election, it's time for the daylight saving issue to be resurrected.

A split time zone in SEQ would not cost the ALP any votes in regional Queensland and would boost its vote in the southeast corner given that 70% of voters in SEQ support daylight saving.

The LNP must have its hands in both its pockets over this issue given the polarised views on daylight saving of the former Liberal and National Parties.
