WRAP UP 2.30PM: THE Bulletin readers had an opportunity this morning to put their de-amalgamation questions to the leaders of the opposing sides in the debate.
Rockhampton Mayor Margaret Strelow and Councillor Bill Ludwig spent an hour each answering questions through an online live blog on The Bulletin website.
Cr Ludwig went first, with a number of questions left in the queue at the end of his one-hour session.
The blog was set up only for readers to submit questions to the politicians, not submit comments.
A number of people submitted comments back to Cr Ludwig's responses, which were not published due to the rules of the live blog, most saying they were not happy with Cr Ludwig's response, either because they were taking too long or didn't answer the question.
Cr Ludwig responded to the comments that were published about the time it took to respond to questions by saying "Thank you and by the way it's just me and Christine McKee from the Bulletin here and I can't answer any faster then she (I) can type and spell check. To give a considered response always takes some thought."
There were also a few, not published, comments about the rule that comments would not be published.
We also experienced a slight technical issue half way through. A 'Your account has exceeded its monthly limit' popped up in front of the moderator. Thanks to the technical guru who rang around to get on the spot approval to increase the limit and ensure today's live blog kept operating.
The one-hour session for Cr Strelow ended early due to a lack of questions submitted towards the end of the session.
At one point there were 51 live readers on the live blog.
The blog reached 30 live readers by 10.15am, 40 by 11am and hovered around the 50 mark for the last 30 mins.
And the conversation even turned to rugby league towards the end.
And Cr Strelow wrapped up her session answering a question from the moderator about how confident she felt about Saturday's polling day, which she responded by saying 'not very'.
