28. The question should be "should water be paid for from general taxation and free at point of use"?
Edited on Sun Aug-17-08 01:17 PM by Donald Ian Rankin
Or, at least, should it be paid for for the poorest by the state?

If the answer to that question is "yes", then the other becomes irrelevant.

If the answer is "no", then yes, water should probably be cut off if someone doesn't pay - saying "you should pay for this, but we'll give it to you even if you don't" is silly, but I would say that the answer to my question is probably "yes".
