Water Bills set for biggest rise in 20 years – and it isn’t even clean

Last Updated: February 18, 2023By Tags: , , , ,

Enjoy the sight: this archive image shows probably the cleanest water you’ll see all year – but the price you’ll pay for this universal necessity that Margaret Thatcher privatised in the 1980s is set to rise by the highest amount in 20 years, in April.

I think it’s uncontroversial to point out that Clive Lewis was one of the Labour MPs singled out for racist abuse by right-wing factionalists who remain party apparatchiks in the Keir Starmer regime.

Rather than waste time fighting his unreasonable and dictatorial leader, Mr Lewis has concentrated on doing his job.

In the following Twitter thread, he raises awareness of the fact that the UK is the only country with a privatised water system, that it doesn’t work, and that – despite this – our bills are set to rise by the largest margin in 20 years, in April.

How about you? Do you want water to be privately-owned?

Or do you want it to be clean?

    Channel 5’s programme The Great Stink 1858 aired on 16th and 17th February, 2023 is a timely reminder of what happens when raw sewage is discharged into the river Thames! Now once again obsession with money and profiteering is reason why the greedy private water companies are destroying our rivers and coastlines by daily discharging raw sewage! The outcome is obvious – another cholera pandemic; typhoid and dysentery will reoccur and the fascist tories will claim ‘wah we don’t know this happened ‘cos its’ not our problem guv!’

    Water bills shouldn’t be increasing because we customers who would die without clean water (what a joke that is now!) don’t even have clean water given most of our rivers and waterways are now so polluted! What exactly are the greedy callous water company boys doing other than enriching themselves at our expense? Certainly not curtailing their regular discharge of raw sewage into our rivers!

    Don’t expect the NHS to provide medical care when the next cholera outbreak occurs because fascist tories have totally destroyed our public health service!

    Margaret Thatcher’s privatisation of public owned utilities was the death knell for the UK. It decimated production and took away our sovereignty of so much that should have remained with the peoples state. Now, after thirty years of privatisation and that includes the many aspects of our NHS, we have so little say on our own resources we might as well be invisible.
