......... Not sure why, when your council tax pays for the supply of water, that they can get away with providing so many people with water they don't like, can't drink and don't like having to wash their socks in. ........
Down here our local Council (East Lindsey District Council) are unable to even tell us what the Water Rates were before it was privatised so Anglian Water are getting away with charging water rates that are about 300% above inflation!
Also, any profits that they make (literally millions of pounds per annum) are mainly used to swell the coffers of Australian and Canadian Pension Funds!
BTW, in the UK it's becoming almost traditional for the management of bigger firms to rob the Pension Funds of their workers; and all our Government does it to wring its hands, agree that it's a total disgrace and then do nothing about it!
Robert Maxwell (famous for stealing the Mirror Group Pension Fund) died back in 1991 and yet as recent as this year (27 years later) there have been similar frauds ...
... and we worry about the state of our brewing water?
