UK energy minister rejects 'waste of money' smart meters claim

"Seems to me that the main disingenuity here is that many non tech aware people will think that a smart meter will automatically save them money."

Exactly. No, wait, I'd like to tweak it a bit:

1) Replace 'many' with 'nearly all'.

2) Take into account that nearly all of the people making the decisions are 'non technical people', too.

Wait again - I've just had a brilliant idea! If a smart meter saves me money, I'll have them install two! I'll save twice as much!
