As a part-owner of Western Power, I am totally gobsmacked that, with the single stroke of a pen, the regulator can destroy half a billion dollars worth of equity in this State-owned business. Who in their right mind would invest in a business where a regulator can spontaneously turn a dollar worth of capital into 50 cents? Is it April the first today?
