Re: Just Say NO To Smart Meters!

I thought I'd have a look at the commissioning of this service and the contracts to run it. Capita has been awarded the operating licence :

What I'd be interested to see is a position where some providers insist on our having a smart meter whilst others permit us to decline having one.

I think we'd see many more people changing suppliers!

You should count yourself as fortunate if you don't have one at present and no-one in your block does either.

My sentiments exactly.
We also led the world in aeronautical engineering in the 1950s.

I'm afraid that all of those leads in technology have been either sold, given away or allowed to wither on the bough by no-one other than our glorious leaders. Who else?
