PS We should all have water meters too!
Your a right bundle of fun today.
Isn't there a direct link between transport use and cost in the price of fuel. The more you use it the more you pay.
With regards water meters why not stick the knife in to hard working nuclear families whilst your at it. Mum and Dad both have to work to make ends meet. And they have a couple of kids at home that need showers everyday and lots of clothes to be washed. When the parents can actually afford those things because the kids have flown the nest they don't need to pay the bills. Lifes always a struggle with kids. Its just made a bit easier when you can use modern gadgets (Cars, washing machines, dishwashers) to get everything done.
Funny how Global warming has fallen off the agenda at the moment.
