I wouldn't worry so much about some 2012 scenario. It all speaks for itself. Our water companies being privatised were sold off to all unsundry.
To my knowledge those affected most like the Thames water district are owned in part by both an Aussie Bank and the Chinese. Just look at our water
rates per year. We pay extortionate fee's to these companies to the tune of billions thus far and not one of them can be arsed to upgrade their
systems or even deal with leaks adequately. They just rake in the cash and throw it at their shareholders.
Allegedly the torrential rain we have had for the best part of April is simply the wrong rain, odd that, they should tell that to my garden that's
having no probs sucking up all that lovely rain. The trouble we have stems from these firms selling off many smaller reservoirs and treatment plants
to build housing on.
It seems that all reservoirs are now at 100%, it's just the underground ones that are struggling due to this "wrong rain". It's laughable if
anything else, rivers have burst their banks left right and center. Tewksbury is already badly affected, which is no surprise since I was at the
Ironbridge Gorge last weekend and the river looked ready to go there, helped heaps by all the water running down the valley. Parts of York ended up
looking like Venice. We are up to our eyes in mud, water and marsh land flooding.
People are starting to kick up a stink about it. A proper evaluation is being demanded. This is likely to go down in history as the biggest load of
bollocks anyone has ever seen.
