Water, Water everywhere…….


Well not really. Here in the sunny south east of the UK, it’s purported that there is a hose pipe ban in force. and that anyone failing to comply could be hit with a fine of up to £1,000.

But is there really a ban? If for instance you don’t watch TV news or the MSM, or local media, how would you know? I suppose that letter from your water company that dropped through the letter box would.

But wait. Filthy Engineer Towers has never received any formal notification from the thieving bastards. So how am I to know? Telepathy, Ouija board, a sign from God?

Bearing in mind recent surveys that show only a tiny minority would dob their neighbour in anyway, due to the fact most people consider the water companies are another set of thieving bastards (Tourette's syndrome at work here), by their shear incompetence in stemming leaks, over share holder profits, they could be in  for a near zero sum game.

Of course I’m a model citizen. Here is my project for the summer.



  1. Not that sure, TFE, but maybe you'd be over-committing on such a project?

    If your water company took legal action to clear the fountains and pool would you lose your marbles?

  2. One of my favourite places to savour Roman life is the Trevi fountain. Visit around 1am (in summer) when the crowds have left but a few cafes are still open and the atmosphere is unbelievably romantic.

    No hosepipe ban here. :) No Scottish politician would be brave, or stupid, enough to insist we sold off our water.

  3. My view is they haven't notified mne so I don't know if the ban effects me. Nor have they let me know what discount I will receive on my bill for the reduction in level of service :)

  4. Ignorance of the law is no excuse, dear boy!

    And my fucking neighbours would definitely take great delight in dobbing me in! (see

    Bastards the lot of them - even worse than the water companies.
