Surely that means that if Labour win the stock market will fall and the cost will go back down?

Nope, because the asset is valued on nationalisation day at market rate. A labour win would for the first time in history, produce a stock market bounce in utilities, because the betting (and in this instance it would be betting) would be that the EU courts would force them to compensate at prevailing market rate at a minimum.

The rest of the market would crash because of their plans to steal progessively more of the shares and dividends from them for any listed company.
