UK energy minister rejects 'waste of money' smart meters claim

The main reason for "smart meters" is almost certain to be backhanders to some senior politicians. (If MPs tax records were public, most of them would be headed for either the Old Bailey or a lynching.)

Unfortunately for this country, the Conservative Party has an effective dictatorship for the next several years - between the loss of Labour seats in Scotland to the SNP and the joke of the current Labour leader, the chance of the Conservatives losing power in the next ten years is near zero. Ar the Conservative MPs know this, they are not now even bothering to pay lip service to what the public wants.
