Not many short and curlies left on my body , I've been plucked off by the attitude of most 'big businesses' these days they all want that extra pound of flesh, which is why I try to go for those that don't grab you by the bollocks.

Re: Smart Meters

Smart meters enable them to know exactly when you are making cups of tea, having a bath etc etc and they can cut your energy off without your say, for example if you can't pay the bill or the direct debit amount they want you to pay, or force you to have tariffs and so on and so forth.

There was a documentary on a few years ago that said that the tech companies of Silicone Valley (Microsoft, Facebook, Google et al) are dictating behind the scenes what governments will do, because they own all this new technology that is being brought in via the Internet and so on. Which the governments are now demanding we adopt, like smart meters. This is happening while genuine shops on the high street are going out of business because people are now using on line shops like Amazon. Also in the next 10 years Millions of jobs will be lost to robots or A.I.

Another one is the tech companies want to get rid of cash (coins and notes) and have us all using smart cards, this probably will happen once this generation of oldies who still like and use cash die out. Notice most young folk use smart cards everywhere and hardly ever use cash now.

Yet again you come on with common knowledge, trying your best to seem informed but, offering us nothing we didn't already know.
Fortunately I can still get hold of real money otherwise I wouldn't be able to drink in old fashioned pubs even though I carry my plastic for the so called modern versions, it used to be called putting it on the slate.
