      There's sod all difference between the two seats. Toowoomba North
      contains both the richest and poorest bits of town.

      It's a marginal seat for Labor, although they got re-elected this
      time.

      Before the last election the Liberals had held it for about 25 years
      or so.

      I have no idea.
