    That's why utility companies shouldn't be privatised.

    Or limit your exposure to it. Some things are cheap like harvesting rain water for toilets to use less water or insulating your home better. Some more expensive like photovoltaic panels. In theory most houses could go off the grid bar waste water which is a relatively small part of your water bill. But at the moment it's not viable for 99.9% of the population so people don't do it.

    I said this about a year ago re the post office and railways (partly done anyway), government tells us that ppl whant better service therefor ppl want it to be privatized, well NO from me. I don't want to put money in the wealthy few who end up owning it.
