In contrast to Bob's experience with United Utilities ( good things etc. ).
Lead water piping feeding the house has compressed and now we need new plastic piping from the house to the mains supply, a distance of 12 metres. Cheapest quote £1200, ok its got to be done.
Because the rear of the property is a private road, United Utilities are charging a little less than £900 to say the jobs a good'un the new pipe can be connected to the mains supply. 12 months ago it would have cost nowt and if the supply was beneath an adopted road it would have cost nowt or on a public highway cost nowt. £900 a shufty, I'd love to inspect their stopcocks with a size 10 hoof and then charge the cunts for the honour of delivering it.
You robbing bastards United Utilities, a fucking big cockpunch to your cunting flanges.
