  • The lucrative Water business- increasing your bill by more than inflation

    http://www.bitterwallet.com/the-lucr...nflation/53487

    "While the Government made a cull of extraneous quangos when it first took office, one group of acronyms we are all pleased to see hanging around are the regulatory bodies that make sure the once-public-owned utility services (for example) are giving us, the comsumer, a good deal for our money. In keeping with this remit, Ofwat, the water industry regulator, has today announced that charges will go up by an average of 5.7 per cent in England and Wales, yes, that’s even more than inflation, from April............."

      They probably just don't want to feel left out, given every other utility, insurer, food etc is going up in price.
      "Although scalar fields are Lorentz scalars, they may transform nontrivially under other symmetries, such as flavour or isospin. For example, the pion is invariant under the restricted Lorentz group, but is an isospin triplet (meaning it transforms like a three component vector under the SU(2) isospin symmetry). Furthermore, it picks up a negative phase under parity inversion, so it transforms nontrivially under the full Lorentz group; such particles are called pseudoscalar rather than scalar. Most mesons are pseudoscalar particles." (finally explained to a captivated Celestine by Professor Brian Cox on Wednesday 27th June 2012 )

        Apparently it's 'value for money', & for big improvement plans in the pip......er, future.


        "After all, the very same Ofwat chief executive Regina Finn said in October: “Where we have concerns about companies’ performance, we have made sure there are action plans in place to put the problem right, at no extra cost to customers.” Good job she isn’t a lying politician then."
