POWER TO FORCEFULLY ENTER YOUR HOME AND INSTALL SMART METERS
Up to £15,000 fines and a year in prison for those who do not comply in horrific Government overreach
By Oliver May
THE Government has passed a bill allowing authorities to use “reasonable force” to enter homes and ensure smart meters are installed.
Reporting in The Daily Sceptic, David Craig, author of There is No Climate Crisis, says Britain is set to “create a totalitarian regime which will intrude on people’s lives, restrict people’s freedoms, wreck the economy and immiserate our country to fix a problem which doesn’t even exist”.
Just nine MPs voted against the bill, which appears to have been rushed through just two days after they returned from their summer break.
Cutting through the jargon of the bill, Craig has learnt that smart meters are not only going to be used to measure how much electricity we are using, but are also going to allow authorities to turn our power on and off when they decide how much we are allowed to use.
Craig writes: “All electricity and gas meters have dates by which they should be replaced. From what I have read the Bill gives representatives from energy companies the power to enter any home, with police protection if required, to replace traditional meters at the end of their lives with smart meters. Again, “reasonable force” may be used.
“The Bill gives the Government the power to force us to have energy assessments for any premises:
The Secretary of State may make regulations for any of these purposes: (a) enabling or requiring the energy usage or energy efficiency of premises to be assessed, certified and publicised;
“We can be fined up to £15,000 or face one year in prison for failing to meet any future energy performance levels any government imposes:
Energy performance regulations may provide for the imposition of civil penalties by enforcement authorities in relation to cases falling within subsection (1)(b), (c) or (d); but the regulations may not provide for a civil penalty that exceeds £15,000.
“Under the totally misleading title of ‘Energy Savings Opportunity Schemes’, authorities can force any person or company to make energy savings using the threat of criminalisation for failure to comply:
The Secretary of State may by regulations (“ESOS regulations”) make provision for the establishment and operation of one or more energy savings opportunity schemes. An “energy savings opportunity scheme” is a scheme under which obligations 30 are imposed on undertakings to which the scheme applies for one or more of the ESOS purposes.
“I could go on. But I imagine you get the picture by now. This ‘Energy Bill’ creates the means by which some puffed-up public-sector mini-dictator could gain powers to control us in ways most people would find completely unacceptable. Yet our useless MPs passed the Bill with a massive majority and the Lords are set to do the same.”
