Water shortages

I am sick and tired of the constant media express concern that Britain is facing water shortages when the reason for shortages has been caused by the privatised Water Companies who since water was privatised in 1989 the Water Companies have closed over 30 reservoirs and not built one new reservoir throughout the 33 years.

Research by Corporate Watch has recorded that privatised Water Companies have paid out £57 billion to its shareholders, an average of £2billion a year, whilst Water Company bosses received £15 billion in 2021 in pay and bonuses.

It's time to take back our water and invest in New Reservoirs and pay 90% of profits its received since it was privatised.
