Wont be long after the first bill hits the letter box and the energy regulator will put the prices up.This is the same regulator who is suppose to represent the public when bord gais and the esb look for their regular price increases.Yet every year sactions price increase in double figures.

So every september we can look forward to a high price increase in water due to the high price for oil, as it requires energy to clean and supply it,then there is the pay offs to the local authorities for handing over responsibility to provide water,then there is the inevital bill that will follow on for the disposing of .treating of waste wate…The money in the national pension fund will be exhausted.We will probaly have a seperate CEO recieve another obscence salary as is the norm in the semi state bodies…Cause we do have to attract the best talent out there to sit on their arse for 52 weeks of the year doing nothing except look for price increases.

Anybody who believes this or any government will repay the loan to the national pension fund is deluding themselves..People forget that when rates were abolished vat was introduced in its place.

Not to worry we can always instal rain barrels and collect our own untreated water….no difference to the water that has been delivered to some regions in the country…who remembers pictures on tv of people in galway purchasing bottled water… The IMF guinea pig continues to comply
