Online report in DM tonight.   Andrea Leadsome or Angela ,government minister ,has revealed problems with the new smart meters, faults aplenty, now the date has been moved to 2024 before it will be law that every home in Britain must have one, and counting....Surely our government should hold back a bit and take notice of this, it is not working and is costing billions.   For our government or to be precise the debt ridden MUA to blithely go ahead spending 16,0000 on something that is proving unreliable is madness.   Would it not be wonderful if lessons could be learned before a monetary disaster instead of the usual lessons have been learned crap that is churned out afterwards.   Well it would be a first would it not.

The phrase "lessons have been learned" must be the most popular trotted out refrain to cover asses here for as long as I can remember !

I have yet to see one occasion when lessons have been learned and put to good use!

But I guess our politicos and CS are much the same as everywhere else, when they get a bit of power they are incapable of listening to other opinions just bat on blithely until things fall in a heap!  Nothing changes.

our government love spending money on stuff that isn't fit for purpose so don't hold your breath.

You can bet your bottom dollar that  a la horse trams, we will have bought a job lot of the junk ones off a bloke at some energy supplier in the UK who saw where things were going, and we will crack on blindly, installing them against all available evidence.

After all sixteen million is not a lot when you say it quickly and it is not your own money getting wasted.
