One Nation's Queensland leader Steve Dickson was a minister in the former Newman government and says LNP leader Mr Nicholls hatched the plans to sack 14,000 public servants and offload public assets.

"It was Tim Nicholls who made that decision, because he was the treasurer and he drove that point. And he also drove the issue relating to asset sales in Queensland," Mr Dickson has told ABC radio.

"I was in the cabinet room. I was a minister. I sat directly opposite Campbell Newman and I remember his position very, very clearly when asset sales were put on the table. He said you will rue the day you did this. And he was right."

Mr Dickson said he felt sorry for Mr Newman, who'd been left with all the blame.

"Campbell Newman was a good leader. I think it's very unfair that he's condemned wholly and solely for those decisions."

Before the Newman government was elected in 2012, the LNP assured public servants they had nothing to fear from the LNP.

Mr Nicholls said Mr Dickson was "completely untrustworthy" but again took responsibility for what occurred when he was treasurer.

"I took my responsibility in that role very seriously because it's a very important thing that we have (a) competent government which we don't have at the moment," he said on Tuesday.

"The people of Queensland spoke, we've accepted that decision and I've made it abundantly clear - no asset leases, no asset sales."
