Water should be managed and charged the same as other essential services such as Electricity, roads, etc. All these have dedicated charges so it only makes sense to charge for water as well.
The fact that we were bankrupt and had to close our budget deficit as a condition of our bailout forced the timing of this.
The discussion as to whether we should have signed up the bailout/guaranteed the banks etc is definitely another topic.
