Watch: your water company getting splashed after 29 years of privatisation

Water companies getting splashed

16 July 2018

In real life, it’s not a fair fight between us and the profiteering water companies who rip us off for providing the most basic essential of life.
But at our SplashMob event to mark the 29th anniversary of privatisation, they got totally soaked! Watch the video:

Interesting thought you might like to consider.

I own a medium sized detached house in Nottingham and pay my water rates to Severn Trent Water.

I pay £29.46 per month which works out at around £350 per year.

The chief executive of Severn Trent gets paid £2,450,000 per year.

That means that my water rates and those of around 7000 other households are needed to pay his salary alone!!

Disgusting!! What does anyone do with £2.45 million - what on earth does he do with £2.45 million EVERY YEAR!!!
