Water, Water Everywhere!

Recommended Posts

Incredibly naive article in the telegraph today with Dickie explaining away the hopeful (for them/thames water) £29 price increase.

People can't afford their water rates and are falling in to arrears so jack them up £16 to cover the shortfall!!!

Only (property ramp) rich foreigners can afford to buy in London so Thames Water must acquire all this prime building land at whatever cost as prices can only go up. Of course cash strapped indigenous proles won't be buying property and the evil, transient renters thst they are they won't be paying their water rates either so add anoither tenner, may as well round this up to thirty quid call it essential upgrades when what the board really want is more cake) then knock a quid off so they can fool the customer into believing they are reakly trying to keep costs/increases down.

Suck it up southerners butnot the water as thats a rare commodity they'll have you know.

Also London water tastes like someone has just had a bath in it.

My personal experience is that water North of the river tastes a bit second hand and flat. South of the river and further east it tastes better, but is hard.

It's all about old mud. Land prices are rising because of Govt policies - so many policy errors that yet again we are heading towards an unsustainable period of phoney growth with consequences. There are real signs down south that the speed of house sales is actually frighteningly fast in some cases. Its not a good sign - not when nothing has been done to sort out social housing; wages are often stagnant or falling AND borrowing multiples are rising.

Everything has got to go up and up........think of the pensions, the dividends, share price, the ceos......the customer can stuff it because they know they have no choice but to pay it and pay for all those who can't or won't pay.....companies that make high profits and pay no corporation tax.....what a great business to have they can't lose, a monopoly supplying something we all need to live. ;)
