Pole and wires

Ed,
After hearing so much about private enterprise not costing us more, with the sale of the poles and wires and retail sections of the electric suppliers, we find that we are to be charged $200 plus for by the retail section of the electrical companies, with possible flow ons of up to $700 further down the track. I don’t believe that they will charge $700 but I think that we can look forward to of a rise of $300 – $400 by the “poles and wires section and the power suppliers.” Even though they are trying to cut the wages of the power station workers, which is in the courts at this time of going to press.
