I defer to your more up to date knowledge, although I’m not sure what difference it makes in this situation. The scenario you describe would be an internal loss regarded as usage by the water supplier, (although it should still be picked up using measurement regimes) and the responsibility of the user to ensure their own systems are secure.

It would be a mammoth management failure if the user ignored the problem as far as even a five-figure loss, never mind the sums being reported. If my gas or electricity meter readings started to spike, I’d first of all get the meter checked, and then look internally. Same goes here.

Also, I can’t imagine the water supplier would continue to supply beyond the situation where there was a outstanding bill in the tens of thousands – although I can’t say for sure whether they would or not.

My overarching point though, leaving technical nuance aside, is that theft of water is difficult to effect and easy to detect. I just can’t see how it could happen in this situation.

A major bone of contention when Celtic moved to Hampden was that despite paying a very high rent, they had zero access to hospitality and stadium catering. The only matchday spend Celtic had access to was tickets and programmes.

Celtic had no negotiating power at all because they were told by the SFA that they could not stay at Celtic Park and rebuild in a phased manner. Therefore they had no other choice but to accept the deal on offer.

When it came out in the wash later on, Fergus McCann accused Ernie Walker of  ‘misleading’ him with regard to the regulatory need to relocate.

However the fact remains that the lease only allowed access on matchdays. Celtic had to provide stewarding, cleanup, and of course policing. The SFA and Queens Park kept the revenues from catering.

I suspect the TDs are not from SFM folk (remember the ratings are available to all manner of trolls). It is a disgusting world-view if made in earnest. A shocking way to score a point if not.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone noticed that Ernest no longer posts since we went to the trouble of creating a whole new thread for him?

Was pretty sure he wasn’t a troll too. Render me disappointed 🙂
