The water companies and the foul stench of exploitation | Nick Cohen | Comment is free | The Observer.

I endorse much of the evidence cited by Nick Cohen but differ in that I do not blame it all on the late Margaret Thatcher’s privatization policy of the 1980‘s. My politics favors small government but effective regulation. I blame ineffective regulators in failing to enforce the public’s best interests with all the privatized industries; these are all still oligopolies. I agree with Nick Cohen that the political classes have been ineffective, especially David Cameron’s Government.

Any thoughts?
