    The ESV final report on smart meter safety at http://www.esv.vic.gov.au/About-ESV/ESVs-reviews-into-smart-meters responds to all current safety concerns (EMR separately) but is marred in parts by lapses in both editorial control and clear writing possibly due to compressed timescales during preparation.
    One example is the incorrect referencing in paragraph 1.2 which uses the term “criminal damage” and references a Jemena source (3) which itself uses the term “sabotage”. The two have quite different meanings in the Victorian 1958 Crimes Act. Consequently, I can not decide whether the Pascoe Vale meters were tampered with before, or after, installation. Jemena language tends to suggest after, but with no published meter installation dates we can not be sure. I will have to suspend judgment on this matter until the media reports on the current Police investigation and/or subsequent Court transcripts—Is the Police report out yet?

    “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” (In conversation with Humpty Dumpty)

      I think Jemena are just a pack of liars out to discredit customer complaints in any way they can… hence the ‘sabotage’ claim. Complete nonsense, far as I’m concerned.

        Hi,wellaware, My posts sometimes let brevity get in the way of clarity. I meant to say that sabotage after meter installation is one thing, but some time before is quite another. Had ESV complied with the requirements of their own corporate plan, http://www.esv.vic.gov.au/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket…tabid=36&mid they would have saved many Victorians the needless worry that their existing installation might already have been sabotaged. It only required a prompt, clear, authoritative statement that tampering with all meters had occurred after installation.

    The Anti-smart meter Movement is gaining Momentum. No-one wants these highly dangerous devices in their neighbourhoods, let alone on their homes. Victoria, Keep saying NO! The rest of Australia is watching… hoping they wont have to go down this disastrous road! The Energy Distributors have it ALL WRONG, so do the Government: Never underestimate the Power of the People! Everyone has the Right to Privacy and Health… Speak Out, Protect Your Loved Ones!

    Is there a group meeting near Sunbury or Moonee Ponds area?

    • Alex says:

      Hi Joyce from Sunbury this is a 30 minute drive down the Ring Rd and then exit on Plenty Rd, not too far at all.

      • Pam says:

        Alex – I posted a “comment” for your Local Leader paper. Hope it gets printed. Congratulations on taking a Stance against these darn SMART METERS. Hope your Meeting went well. The more publicity we can get the better……Cheers Pam 🙂

      Hi Joyce,
      There was one in Glenroy just a couple of weeks ago which was really well attended. Unfortunately an announcement was posted here only a few days before the meeting.
      Hope you have your signs up and meter locked. Best of luck.
