Katter’s Australian Party MP, Shane Knuth has had his seat scrapped and could move to One Nation.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has priced Knuth at $3.00 to defect to Pauline Hanson’s One Nation.
Knuth’s seat of Dalrymple was one of the casualties in the sweeping changes made to Queensland’s electoral boundaries.
KAP is $7.00 to de-register from the ECQ and $11 to merge with One Nation, by 2018.
Also affected by the changes is Labor’s Kate Jones and Steven Miles, along with the LNP’s Scott Emerson.
In pre-selection Jones is $1.15 for Cooper and $5.00 for Maiwar, while Emerson is $1.15 for Maiwar.
Knuth is $1.87 to contest Hill, $4.00 for Traegar and $3.00 any other electorate.
September, this year, is the $3.00 favourite option for the next Queensland election.
“It’s a massive shake-up for Queensland politics and Pauline Hanson could be the big winner out of the redistribution. One thing it does confirm is that an election is likely to be sooner, rather than later,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
