There is no scarcity of water in most parts of the country, in fact many post-industrial areas have a surplus of supply now the factories have closed down. This is the most contrived crisis if ever there was one.

Same goes for other moral crisis of our time, such as the carbon emission permits which soley benefit the nuclear industry, nice.

The committee said that our water is too cheap, and we should get used to paying more for it.

How does this work? Since the privatised water companies already make massive profits, how can it be too cheap, and why should those companies make even greater profits?

Artificial scarcity is the basis of monopolistic capitalism, we've been over this before.

Essentials will become luxuries, you tax what everybody needs, in the future everything will be in private hands and 'metered' in some way, it's already the case for water and utilities, in the future it will also include the road network, heathcare or your child's education, they will all be in private hands. You will never own anything, but simply 'hire' or subscribe for as long as you can afford to, this is already the case for housing but nobody really appreciates it. Your life will be like iTunes.
