The current situation isn't just a 'lazy / stupid' tax, it is also a waste of people's time. I don't want to spend hours every year checking all my contracts and using comparison sites then switching (or threatening to) if I have to. If you added up all the hours wasted by everyone in the country I wouldn't be surprised if the cost outstripped the amount overpaid.
All that effort for no overall economic gain.
The issue with these bugs is that even if your cloud VM is 100% secure, a malicious or careless user of another VM running on the same hardware can access your data. Security becomes out of your control.
Some people previously questioned the security of sharing hardware with lower security instances or 3rd parties but were constantly told there was no issue....
