Government & Post Election Discussion

So far it seems a somewhat watered down affair.

Nothing really very controversial, quite a few welcome (IMO) changes.

"Smart Meter Bill

..... puts consumers in control of their energy use, helping them understand their energy and bills, bringing an end to estimated billing and transforming the experience of pre-paying customers

..... protects the operation of the national data and communication service to safeguard smart services at all times

..... ensure smart meters will be offered to every household and business by the end of 2020

..... introduce a Special Administrative Regime, which will provide insurance for the national smart meter infrastructure in the unlikely event that the company responsible for it becomes insolvent"

We have had our smart meter for 2 years now and thus so far we are pretty happy with it.

Re: Queens Speech (Government Plans) 2017

We maybe better off without as our solar panel export is assumed to be 50% so if we use more than that we are even more pennies in. If we use less though we are worse off, hence we use most heavy electricals in morning when panels are at max.

Re: Queens Speech (Government Plans) 2017

It's great the Corbyn and McDonnell are so pro the police, just a bit odd that they don't seem to mind stirring up tensions for 'demonstrations' like the Day of Rage in which the police are once again going to be in the front line for any violence meted our by the loony lefties. When McDonnell boasted about 'the best of our movement kicking the **** out of Millbank' during the London riots who does he think was put at most at risk I wonder. The police!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEuKBxdyy-Q

The 'best of our movement'? Angry, violent, thugs? Really? It's really quite bizarre that anyone could vote for dangerous hypocrites like this.

Sorry but they can't see beyond the ends of the noses. They hear what they want to hear.

She has better morals. Unlike you, Corbyn.... May went to the Armed Forces day service in Liverpool.

Re: Queens Speech (Government Plans) 2017

I think it's all getting a bit (more) cultish around Corbyn but can't really see what there is to object too about him going to Glastonbury (other than the cult aspect). Some are repeating the mistakes that Remain made by being deaf to the concerns of other demographics, I.e the young.

Re: Queens Speech (Government Plans) 2017

Corbyn even had the audacity to post an old picture of himself meeting with veterans whilst he was off having fun at a music festival.

https://order-order.com/2017/06/24/c...lasto-instead/

What a complete and utter disgrace to parliament this guy and his nasty cronies are.

Re: Queens Speech (Government Plans) 2017

Because he went to Glastonbury and not the Armed Forces Day? Is the latter a thing it's customary for the leader of the opposition to attend? I really don't see that as a disgrace or nasty. If he didn't turn up to remembrance day that would be something else entirely.
