Smart Meters | Not only enforcing them but criminalising those who don't fit them

In March the coalition government amended “The Heat Network (Metering and Billing Regulations) 2014 ” to make it a criminal offence if public and private landlords do not fit smart meters in their properties if they have more than one tenant and the heat is supplied from “communal or district” heat networks.

Despite the weight of evidence now coming against the government rolling out smart meters and the government commitment “there will not be a legal obligation on individuals to have one” the government has decided to not only force smart meters on the nation but to start criminalising those who don’t fit them.

The legislation covers both the landlord and all their tenants (and sub-tenants) placing a legal obligation on all to supply “accurate billing information” with landlords having to report to the “National Measurement and Regulations Office” (weights and measures).

This means people renting in high rise tower blocks, sheltered Housing complexes, eco communities where the power comes from communal and community heating systems must have smart meters fitted by their landlords – by law – despite the government’s claim there would be “no legal obligation” to have one fitted.

Homeowners and sole tenancies are exempt, for now, with the government choosing to target pensioners and the poor in high rise tower blocks first, like benefit changes, targeting the weakest in society first who are paying higher bills than the rest of the nation.

ARE YOU AWARE OF THIS???

Smart meters can give out massive levels of microwave radiation, especially if inside a house. The power rises to reach the nearest mast! ! !
