Tories privatised them but the foreign takeovers happened under Labour. EDF took over London Electricity and Seeboard, Macquarrie took over Thames Water. Telefonica took over O2, Iberdrola took over Scottish Power, RWE took over Npower, Eon took over Powergen all under Labour. Whether Labour could have stopped it as part of the single market is a good question. Also whether they should of is open for debate as well.
