Another article [website seems to be temporarily down] in today's Daily Telegraph about water bills going up in order to upgrade Britain's "antiquated sewerage network". (Actually, a good deal of it works rather well but one does not expect a mere hack to know that.)
There is a great deal of toing and froing about prices and how much more we shall have to pay and how high our water bills are already so why is the money not being used for .... blah-blah-blah. Guess what is missing from Harry Wallop's article.
Yes, that's right, there is absolutely no mention of the European Union or of the various water directives, now all united in the Water Framework Directive or about how much money water companies have had to spend to implement those often pointless rules. Do they do this on purpose or are they really this dim?
