WAF, the water authority which makes up water bills out of thin air, say they are following through on the promise to give away a whole lot of free water but they are asking us “to be honest” in our registration by notifying them if our “household income exceeds $30,000 at any time during the three-year period”. They say “This is to allow other families in need to benefit from the program”. What do they mean “to allow other families in need to benefit from the program”? Do they mean that there are only so many families who will receive free water and if people who earn more than the income allowed, others who should get the allowance will miss out? The whole scheme sounds unworkable because it seems to rely on honesty about income, and the amount of water provided free depends on the number of people in the house. Are they going to check the numbers in each household or assume there’s only five? Who’s going to check all the facts and how many people in the house. Are they going to check all the facts and how many people will be doing all the checking. WAF have hit people with outrageous bills in the past and then Bainimarama promised that all the bills could be reviewed. It’s all a mess and one big joke.
