If you live in Shepway you’ll have seen your water bills steadily rise since the supply was privatised in 1989.

The companies you’ve been paying to have changed, but the bills have kept going up. The latest company to benefit from this is Affinity Water, which took over  from Veolia towards the end of 2014. 

A quick delve into shows that this innocuously named service provider is owned by: the Prudential insurance company, global megabank Morgan Stanley and the Chinese government, with notorious water profiteer Veolia continuing to hold a 10% share.
