QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT ASSET SELL OFF STUMBLES

Posted in Uncategorized by thecuriousmail on October 6, 2009

bligh juntaThe Queensland government’s  plan to sell off $15 billion worth of public

assets, ostensibly to correct a budget deficit and retain a AAA credit rating,

 stumbled yesterday as rumours surfaced that former government members

stand to gain hundreds of millions of dollars in ‘success fees’ if the sell off is

completed.

Despite surveys which consistently show 75 to 85% community opposition to the government’s sell off plan,

Premier Bligh has been adamant in her refusal to budge from the proposed asset sell off.

Efforts are now being made by various bodies to identify those former government members who stand to become

multi millionaires thanks to Premier Bligh’s largesse.
