IT WAS  a full house at the Maroochydore RSL with Sky New anchor Paul Murray broadcasting from the Sunshine Coast.

Earlier in the day, six lucky Sunshine Coast Daily readers enjoyed a more intimate experience with the straight-talking TV star at an exclusive lunch hosted by Mr Murray and Daily editor Jenna Cairney.

The rise of One Nation on the Coast, development, Queensland Rail and the axing of penalty rates were all hot-button issues at the lunch at the Post Office Bar and Restaurant, Maroochydore and on the Live show last night.

Here is how the night unfolded:

PMLive Pub Quiz

Paul Murray asked those at the Maroochydore RSL in the crowd which leader they would support. Malcolm Turnbull got very little love (less than Pauline Hanson), while Tony Abbott was far more popular.

Steve Dickson on the defection

Member for Buderim Steve Dickson explains why he defected from the LNP to become the Queensland leader of One Nation.

"They've taken their eye off the ball, they've forgotten who they're here to represent."


Rise of One Nation


Pauline Hanson's party and its rise on the Sunshine Coast and in Queensland politics proves a hot topic.


Penalty Rates

ONLY hours after penalty rates were slashed, it's a hot topic:



Where should the Prime Minister live?
