      Yes I looked it up from Ozleft.

      I didn't get a mention. I'm very disappointed.

      Bob's seems to think that Iemma and Costa will eventually be forced to backdown on this. There's no indication of this. The only way I can see it being defeated is if there is a revolt in caucus or a revolt by Labor MPs on the floor of parliament. Even then I feel Iemma and Costa will attempt to have it passed with the support of the opposition. That would be absolutely disastrous.

      The Libs have been curiously quiet on this. I believe they support the privatisation. If Farrell had any political he'd come out and oppose it. That would really turn the heat up on Iemma and effectively drive a wedge between Labor and the Greens.

      Whatever transpires I can't see how Labor can possibly be competitive at the next state election with Iemma and Costa in their current positions. Whatever happens they have to go.

      The situation is every bit as serious as the one in Queensland in 1957 where the premier and a majority of the parliamentary party refused to implement policy in accordance with party platform.
