    The classic ploy to enter conversation is, you may have seen the advert on TV about making your life easie rusing our new swipe cards to pay for your electricity, all you do is swipe the card and the electric will be on your meter before you can get home, they just did this today right here, BUT, never mentioned the words SMART METER, these door knockers must also realise that by having a smart meter fitted they will be putting thousands of meter readers jobs on the line, but never mention this either.
    For those who live in rented accomodation and or local authority dwellings, you must let then know in writing/signed delivery to let them know from the very outset, that you are not going to concent to having a meter or any contracts with such a company, and any forceable VIA COACTUS action of reasoning on thier behanf in your absence, that they ply toward your person, you will hold them and their seinors personally responsible for any indirect violence that is created afterwards by forceably fitting such a device in your home without concent or contract.

    You and RT have made my mind up, Thank you. Oh the random man who knocked at my door yesterday only lied to me on a couple of points, did he not think I'd read the leaflet he handed me! When something starts on a lie with me it's never very good!

  4. iamcolinedwards says:

    As a tech head and smart home enthusiast, I will NOT get a smart meter. My mother just ordered one but I’ve told her to cancel. This video was a lot of help but I did a bit of research prior and I don’t see the benefit!

    It’s joke I live in new flats and there’s there six smart electric boxs for every flat and smart in the ground floor omg where do I get help I live in the uk

  6. Kim Harding says:

    I was with OVO who tried to put in a smart meter, despite me refusing and arguing that I didn't want one. They booked me in and I sat in waiting for the engineer to come around.
    No show.
    When I contacted them the next day, they informed me that my area didn't have good coverage (I live out on the Isle of Wight so it's rural and a bit behind as far as things like mobile phone coverage is concerned.
    I felt so happy, so pleased and relieved.
    I switched energy firm straight after.
    No to smart meters!

  7. M G says:

    My college lecturer said "Old electric meters run in the consumers advantage by a few percent (new meter run to the suppliers advantage by up to 4% Legally ) "… Yet another reason NOT to have a Smart Meter!

    Oh Did you now customers pay foe the power the meter uses …ok its not a lot but do they tell everyone !

    I only ever get something if it is of some benefit to me, no matter how tangible. Until I come across any evidence to indicate that I will benefit from having a smart meter then I shan't bother. Thanks for the vid.

  16. 24321619 says:

    I am not aware that the meter can I.D. any appliance, indeed it can not even monitor what each seperate socket is doing. Also burglar alarms have a back up battery. which kick's in when the mains supply is lost.

  17. amanda says:

    If they know the time we all more or less eat and sleep they know what time to schedule their propaganda on TV, ads on the phone, anything. It's for their control. It's not free and if something from the govt is free, best believe there is a reason for the lie.
