If your property is in the way of something important, or standing on land needed for the ‘common good’, the government can force you to sell it to them with a ‘compulsory purchase order’. What about doing something like this as a solution to the power companies? Today, looking at domestic fuel price-hikes, alongside massive profits, people are finally beginning to nervously debate a windfall tax.
But fuck that, what about a compulsory profit reclaim? Or better still, let’s just renationalise the fuel companies and remove the profit element altogether from what is a basic essential? Then our fuel bills would just be running costs, with any surplus being plowed straight back into the system. This would also remove any need for corporate heel-dragging on greening their systems. Just a thought.
