Smart meter benefits even crappier than originally thought

sorry, what?

Oooh, I bet that Smarts!

I, for one, would happily forego the "benefit" of so-called Smart Metering and actually pay that extra 7p a day just for the peace of mind that some passing twonk can't hack my energy supply at my meter.

Being a weak point well away from the supply generation side of things, I'm convinced the energy providers won't be all that fussed about trying to sort out such hacks (as long as they still get some money from the poor consumer).

Especially after the gov forces them to spend so much of our hard-earned cash, sorry "their well deserved profits", on the metering programme.
