She's a known Commie. What sewage are they spilling into the water? I haven't tasted a change in my cuppa tea.

They're not gonna spill sewage into the water, because they rely on the water as much as us peasants do. They have to drink and bathe in it just like we do.

Yes a Left
Winger.


But all she did was relay what is in the FT respected paper.

But she had a great point,
the Labour Party
are sticking with this stinking sewer
problem.
Not taking over the Water Industries

So Enjoy your Cuppa, sad Alf
as bits of sewer are hidden in your tap water

The water that comes out of my taps is only worth washing my clothes and showering in.

I'd never drink it.

Yeah I heard that ..

All water bills to be increased by over £220 per year ( extra £20 per month) ..

To pay for repairs and pipe upgrades to reduce the amount of water leaking out ..

So we will basically not get anything out of this price hike .. you just know that most of the money will be creamed off by the money men

I complained about it when water was first privatised. I just can't get behind any system where we hand off a critical service that people need to survive out to the private sector. The fact that this now includes foreign owners only interested in profit, is fundamentally wrong. If any service should be state owned, it's water. If labour or the tories put it into their manifesto at the next election, to bring water back to state ownership, they would win the election. It worries so much of the population
