Bbc Attck Spin Of Water Companies

Recommended Posts

Recent article. Very good journalism though. Just the BBC being hypocrites (spelling)

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/5019846.stm

Basicaly saying the water companies are fidling the figures (shock horror) to panic the sheeple into saving more and to hide their own failings. Sound familiar <_<

Read whole article thought. it's long yes, but good journalism

Well of course, the water companies have realised that people quite 'happily' take the price rises in gas, electricty and council tax over and over again and they want a piece of the action. This is how the mafia operate in Scilly, they don't go for the decadent stuff, they target the essentials like the water supply or rubbish collection.

Monopolies thrive on artificial scarcity, water companies are no different from De Beers in this respect, they are local monopolies.

Governments have been using fear for a long time to make the people do what they want. Now its the turn of the oil, gas and water companies.

Government is picking up ideas straight from the mafia cookbook.

The water industry should be re-nationalised. Without compensation.

The standpipes have been installed for land supply for decades.

Never hear much comlaint about that, who gets the benefit and who gets ripped off and which companies are pushed out of the UK becuase of it.

Of course, the government can do anything it fancies, they are the biggest and most far reaching corporate monopoly in existence. Such test cases are simply to determine how supine the general public has become, once we tolerate this they will push on with new things, such as their new 'window tax' inspections.

I seem to remember working out that our friendly, non-privatised Scottish Water was in debt to the tune of 2,000,000,000; not bad for a country of 5,000,000.

There are obviously problems with some of the water companies, and, let's be honest, there are also problems with state monopolies, but I think we are more forgiving of state industries being sh1te than of private companies.

My local water company is fine, their reservoirs are at 95% however this is no doubt lost on those in Whitehall and water meters will be imposed in the interests of "fairness". The company is actually a state monopoly, it's now owned by the First Islamic Bank of Bahrain.
