"To permit is to control"
An Engluishman's Castle has spotted a little publicized report linked to Climate Change and reported in The Register. As AEC writes:
"Meanwhile, household access to electricity will be restricted - thanks to smart grids - or taken away completely, with electricity rationed via a completely automated supply. You'll do the laundry when you're told to, not when you want to."
We have known of the ability of Smart meters to regulate the supply of electricity for some time now, however a little known - and of course not publicised - other advantage springs to mind. The ability to 'ration' our electricity supply will ease the problem that the government has with the forthcoming energy provision crisis, the lack of provision capability in years to come - other than the useless and costly windmills.
The govt doesn't just want your money; they want your soul, they want control of your lives, until you are dependent and helpless. Both the last government and the present talk a great deal about freedom - but the only freedom with which they are concerned is theirs - the freedom to control us!
