Brighton & Hove Labour For the many, not the few
In a letter to The Argus, one reader notes that councillor John Allcock, in his view from this weeks Labour column in The Argus, is completely correct with his condemnation of Southern Water.
“They continue to carry out serious pollution events and the slaps on the wrists from ever-increasing financial fines do not really seem to bother them.
“They have the complete monopoly of water provision and treatment of waste in the area they operate and that is not a good thing for a private company to have.
“Lets not kid ourselves, private companies have a primary aim, to maximise profit for their stakeholders.
“Fracking for energy also has to stop. As we are told passionately by Kenny Lloyd in his letters to the Argus.
“Don’t mess around anywhere near the water table…
“No clean water, no human life.
“Jeremy Corbyn shook politics up. I liked that he did that. He just over-stretched with the promises.
“But if a political party vehemently declared in a manifesto that they would categorically nationalise all water companies, I wouldn’t need to read anything else.
“They would have my vote one hundred per cent.”
