Renationalise the water companies, and we'll get our clean rivers back.

More profit over the health and wellbeing of their customers water.

I heard an article on Radio 4 about this.
Water should be firmly in the hands of the people so the government should nationalise it.
You need profits to run things but all that should be ploughed back into what is a necessity for us.

I hate pollution in all its forms.

From dropping litter to big ones like polluting our drinking water.
It's time these companies had proper ways of dealing with things or risk being forced to sell to another firm more competent.
