I seriously doubt that the Mexican government will negotiate more favorable energy rates with GOB until there is a corporate middlemen in between skimming profits. The problem is not that the faceless bureaucracy like GOB will be running things - it's more that GOB is no more transparent or open to public scrutiny than a faceless bureaucracy like FORTIS.

FORTIS already proved that they're nothing more than a bunch of thieves by charging the customers in Belize 35 mil for the power lines TWICE - for that alone they should have been put in jail long time ago and all their property forfeited. Nationalizing BEL is basically moving on and letting them get off easy.
