True Nora - and this after decades of paying over the top levels of water rates to the privatised water companies.
I remember that the reason that they were supposidly privatised was to raise the funds to updgrade the system to avoid summer drought. Now after paying ever higher amounts we get an all year drought, and even higher bills but less water as a result. Perhaps paying so much extra to so few elite who in turn have provided less service than before privatisation was not all it was dressed up to be!
The same thinking seems to be behind this 'eco' plan - giving government money into private hands for them to keep, whilst passing all the costs onto the general public for ever more by forcing them to accept loans (that may not look like loans, but exactly are loans) tied to the property for a product that they will have to wait generations to get the benefit of, but will for generations be paying back to the private interests because of.
And the public, as ever, say yes!
