    Hi Glenn, I enjoyed your article, on issues in common, clarifying and demonstrating sound logic. ‘Dumbed down knowledge’, often form utility and supplier organisations, is often quite disappointing and an inefficient use of effort. It is like looking at a watch and saying its about a quarter passed; rather then saying its 18 minutes passed; which could make all the difference. Your topic is pertinent as utility prices increase; it seems regardless of carbon tax amendments. Finally, please continue to provide us with your informed observations. Cheers Peter

    Water is something I claim should have been investigated years ago as soon as the merchants of perks and pleasures got hold of it, we have all sorts of charges that don;t even relate to any residential household, but they do relate to the 6 figure incomes, with perks and pleasures, that is nothing more than frauldent to the average, hoping to work citizen, ( fat chance these days ) being able to pay their way, ( don’t even think of the pensioner )……….. The powers to be, may be a academic of some description, BUT! what is painfully obvious is the total lack of common sense, in relation to the responsibility of the position they hold………….Ah, yes, the common sense to run a a state, that is a level playing field, people are told the truth, and justified cost to the reality of supply, and consumption, not perking the till, or should I say people’s pockets, I look at mine, and find they are not platinum, as Turnbull thinks, & treasury wants, the G.S.T. at 15%, neither one has any idea what the hell is really happening in Aus. or the ladder effect if the increase goes through, it spreads, effecting many, and much needed essential service requirements, unless you and the family have to sleep under a bridge on the grubby Yarra, you have no worries, except how to die so who exactly, is running beyond fantasy land, on a fools errand, it is definitely not John & Joan Doe, with their pockets being pillaged….Did I hear someone say they have the phone No of God.
