I'm presenting it as an opinion, which is what the OP asked for. Are you presenting the cost of water as being a significant hard fact cause of debt that outweighs the factors I mentioned? or are you opining? I have seen no evidence about it.

I find budgetary problems to be a bit laughable, because no person in this country with a pair of brain cells can fall into debt for basic needs if they don't waste their money. It's simply impossible.
Be it working on the minimum wage or receiving benefits, it's not possible. Adjust your lifestyle, sure. But if a Sky subscription supersedes your needs for water, not sure why it's being pushed onto society as a dilemma.
I would be very open to being convinced otherwise with a clear example of such an individual/household, who is not able to afford basic needs, despite saving on non-necessities and without making stupid prior decisions like taking out a payday loan.
Why have kids if you can't afford to give them water?
