Queensland Premier Anna Bligh says there will be no negotiating the government's planned $15 billion asset sell-off, despite admitting workers could end up shortchanged.
The sale of five Queensland-owned assets as a buffer ahead of this month's state budget has ignited public anger and fierce opposition from the unions, who claim it will put up to 10,000 jobs at risk.
Even Labor's members have spoken out against the privatisation, with rebel members threatening to have the premier expelled from the party for breaching ALP rules if the move goes ahead.
This doesn't seem to have been covered much in the MSM. I found this info after seeing a snippet in the TV news about Bligh walking out on the ALP State Conference, and Kevin Rudd.

What will they sell next to bail them out of their bad spending decision debt?
