England's water got privatised, because that was where most of the money needed to be spent. Along with Wales's, but then it got into power and hotels and leisure and then got bought and sold it's water arm back to the government for £1 (and some lovely debt) and is now a not for profit. Scotland and NI are under different legal regimes - which is why their Water Regs are slightly different - and everything happened differently.
