Whenever nationalized industries are sold off, "our people" in the city make a lot of money, from the very first privatization under Mrs T right up to the bargain-basement fire sale of Royal Mail.

Don't forget Nationalised Industries were riddled with job protectionism, over staffed, junk unionism, inefficient, and costly, privatisation was the only way. You criticise 'people in the city' , but you overlook there were millions of ordinary working people that made a lot of money from the discounted shares that were offered.

Given the widespread inefficiency that prevailed, the union's grasp on working methods, the bullying then went on regarding voting for the union's measures, job protectionism and the £millions lost each and every DAY as a result, the nationalised industries were not worth a carrot. Once taken into private hands, new measures were taken including lots of voluntary (Fully subscribed incidentally) redundancies. Then and only then did their values increase.

Here is a link to the Environment Agency Thames Region Strategic Action Plan for Water Supply. As you can see it is a detailed and considered document (some might say tedious!) which goes into the existing situation and problems, future population growth, possible climate change, future action etc etc. There will be other such documents for other Enviroment Agency regions and SEPA for Scotland.

'The Plan' indicates the relevant government policy framework, in this case from DEFRA (Dept of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) .
