    Talk to me about... smart meters.

    Sorry edited my original then saw your post - As an energy policy it has a lot of good points, smoothing demand and all that, but if this is true and they have rolled out meters in peoples houses without disclosing there true purpose would you not classify that as a conspiracy?

    Talk to me about... smart meters.

    It's not based on time - it's based on demand, England in the world cup final 7pm evening = expensive, BBC2 documentary on the lifecycle of the tapeworm at 2 in the morning = cheap :). No company offers this at the moment. Conspiracies do not have to be deep and dark. As an energy policy it...

    Talk to me about... smart meters.

    Yes - but the fact is, if it's true, the government and energy industry have kept this from the public, hence its classification by some as a conspiracy.

    Talk to me about... smart meters.

    Yes - for some it would be better for others worse, If you believe the conspiracy, generally the poor would potentially suffer more. They need power when they need it and cannot afford banks of batteries to play the system like the rich would. Technology like the Tesla battery wall has been...

    Talk to me about... smart meters.

    The smart meter conspiracy is about them being used as a trojan horse to force dynamic pricing onto people in the future. i.e. you pay more when demand is high. Smart meters could enable this. They question why the government has been so keen to get people to install them, when currently they...

    Stafford Eastern Distributor Road.

    No. Climate change. new roads are now bad. Local active travel networks are the new good. Make Stafford a place you would want to go, and make it safe to walk or cycle there. Stay local, spend local - It's the future ;)

    Working hard for Stafford and Penkridge.

    mmm it appears there may be a complete U turn on the way regarding Paterson. Perhaps someone has whispered 'remember Cummings?' in the PM's ear?

    Working hard for Stafford and Penkridge.

    To be fair to Theo it must be exceedingly difficult to differentiate the stink of raw sewage from the stench of corruption oozing from the pores of herself and her colleagues after the vote to save her dishonorable friend yesterday. I guess now she has disabled her conscience and overcome the...

    Hopefully the council will approve this :-) https://www.inyourarea.co.uk/news/largest-nature-reserve-earmarked-for-heart-of-stafford/ It's at least a start :-)

    Laptop , Cloudbook or Chromebook ?

    Make sure you check that the operating system of the device you choose supports the printer/scanner you have. Having to buy / not buy a new printer can sometimes change your initial choice ;-)

    Defending the Floodplain.

    Had a quick cycle round but cannot see what they are doing from the road :-( Have you any pictures? Christine & Ray Barron have called the development in so please let them know what is going on along with Jessica Allsopp the planning officer.

    Coronavirus.

    Unfortunately, in the UK we confuse common sense with the common good. Take Cummings, he was faced with a virus spreading uncontrolled in London, his wife already had it and he suspected he had it too. He knew that the local hospital was already overwhelmed. He did the common sense thing and...

    Coronavirus.

    But that’s sort of the point isn’t it. You cannot choose what level of risk you are willing to take when a good chunk of that risk is based on the behaviour of others. If we had a society, like Sweden, where the majority of the people understand the concept of the ‘Common good’, and realise...

    Coronavirus.

    But We didn’t did we. At the point of lockdown, infection tracking had collapsed, we had no idea of the scale of infections, we had no nightingale hospitals our PPE supplies were ether faulty, out of date, insufficient or non-existent. Hospitals had already sent the old to die in care homes at...
