Another concern about smart meters, not addressed in Tom Fletcher’s column, is the fear that someone far away can arbitrarily control the appliances in your home. To this I say, “Bravo.”

If the closed-circuit TV camera hidden in your smoke detector shows you are about to irradiate Mr. Hamster, having a bureaucrat in Ottawa turn off your microwave oven is a pretty good thing.
