    Compulsory Smart Meters. 21st Jan 17 at 4:23 PM
    On behalf of mum!

    She came home to a letter, from Eon, saying she had to have a smart meter fitted.

    Des she have to?

    Also how big are they as this seems to be her biggest concern.

    Thanks

    It's in the Labour manifesto, so maybe you should switch side.

    The only side I'm on would be the Monster Raving Loonies... I would happily stand for them on a ticket of free gas and electric for everybody, except for anyone earning over 100k a year.

    They could but only foolish are going to vote for the unelectable, whole election was called because it was a free lunch, virtually guaranteed to extend ConGov for 5 more years.

    Ah, but does it qualify as 'news' - if its just a reprint of the 1983 edition?

    Sorry, couldn't resist. I don't think any of the parties currently offer anything that voters can really get excited about. This election may go down in history as the most boring protracted one ever... which is hardly surprising a year on from the Brexit vote.

    Michael Foot's 1983 manifesto was right wing compared to this 2017 effort. Foot, like Corbyn, was/is patently sincere, but led Labour to their lowest share of the Vote since World War One.

    At least Foot resigned, I wonder if Corbyn will do the same?

    It is only for the ConGov to lose and it would not be the first time that happened.
