So Britain’s privatised water companies have made windfall profits of more than a billion pounds.
Why? Because this Government’s regulators allowed them to charge consumers unnecessarily high bills.
Every year the companies have been allowed to jack up consumers bills well above the inflation rate.
This is where capitalism falls down.
If the water companies and the other utilities were still owned by the taxpayer, we could have regulated them properly, while paying some of the debt and the massive borrowing this Government has allowed to jack up.
But no, all the profit goes into the hands of foreign countries and profiteers who now own our utilities.
Come on, all you working-class Tories, wake up and smell the coffee. All in it together, I don’t think so.
