UK RESIDENTS RED ALERT! IMPORTANT – KNOW YOUR RIGHTS! – Go
To:- http://stopsmartmeters.org.uk/faq/

It is not possible for your Power Company or Water Company to claim they have
the right to install a surveillance device on your house. Smart Meters are no
different from wire-tapping devices.

Tell the utility company they cannot change your meter (by recorded letter – see
below for detailed instructions), otherwise they think they have your ‘implied
consent’ to ‘upgrade’ your safe meter to a meter which emits cancer causing
radiation, and spies on you.

IN YOUR LETTER to the Utility Companies you tell them they may not install a
Smart Meter or any other surveillance device on your house. By doing this, this
negates their ‘implied consent’ and therefore you are sending a clear message to
the Utility company.

Keep several copies of the letter and post by recorded mail.
In the UK, Water Utility Companies (like Thames Water currently) are fitting
‘Smart’ Meters first before the Electric and Gas companies (it seems perhaps
because Water Meters are located in the pavements and they do not need to
gain access to your property?) – Later in 2016 you will likely be getting
threatening letters and/or phone calls and probably personal visits by ‘Customer
Engagement Teams’ to ‘upgrade’ your Electricity and Gas meters to a ‘Smart’
Meter, but YOU HAVE THE RIGHT NOT TO LET THEM INTO YOUR PROPERTY TO FIT
A ‘SMART’ METER! – BASED ON:-

1. THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION has given a rating for microwave
radiation as being a CLASS 2B CARCINOGEN, which these ‘Smart’ meters
emit real-time AND

2. YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO PRIVACY IN YOUR OWN HOME – ‘Smart’ Meters SPY
ON YOUR USEAGE by sending details real-time wirelessly back to the
Utility company who can then sell your data to any Third-Party companies
for marketing! Therefore if you are away for a few days holiday, the Utility
companies (and who knows who else) will see you are not at home! This
is a serious breach of privacy, so state the above facts in your letters to
your Utility Companies.

Official – D.E.F.R.A. confirms smart water meters are NOT compulsory:-

(See this letter for yourself)
Goto:- http://stopsmartmeters.org.uk/official-defra-confirms-smart-water-meters-are-not-compulsory/

(Extract):- The Parliamentary Under Secretary for Water,
Forestry, Rural Affairs and Resource Management, (DEFRA) – Dan Rogerson MP
has confirmed in a letter to Nicholas Soames MP that “no water company is ever
required [by the Government] to introduce compulsory metering, even in areas
of severe water stress” and that any decisions to introduce metering should
“be done in consultation with customers”.

Over recent months, we have received several reports that certain utility
companies are taking a heavy-handed approach in trying to enforce
their corporate Smart Metering agendas – with at least one company
insisting that they have legislative powers to force people to accept a Smart
Meter.)

BE ALERT TO THIS SCAM! Thames Water are trying to use the excuse
“Their region is in an area of severe water stress” in reply letters/emails to
complaining customers. (See Dan Rogerson’s comments – above link – clearly
states the contrary)… YOU MUST WRITE LETTERS TO YOUR UTILITY COMPANIES
BEFORE THEY INTEND TO FIT A NEW ‘SMART’ METER (ESPECIALLY WATER
METERS!) WHY? BECAUSE THEY HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR WATER METER IN THE
PAVEMENT WHILE YOU ARE AT WORK, OR NOT AT HOME. ALSO KEEP COPIES OF
YOUR LETTERS.. IMPORTANT! – USE STOPSMARTMETERS.ORG.UK website
for ALL the help you need… Useless action to be phoning Utilities (LIES, LIES,
LIES, and MORE LIES! and Deception).

STOP PRESS! – William Mcnally of Thames Water Confirms you can have your
own NON-Smart Water Meter installed.

REMEMBER: KNOW YOUR RIGHTS, NOW – BEFORE THE EVENT. READ, and REREAD THESE NOTES.

REMEMBER: YOU WILL BE LIED TO ON THE PHONE

REMEMBER: YOU WILL BE LIED TO BY EMAIL MESSAGES FROM THEIR
‘CUSTOMER SERVICES’

REMEMBER: SOON THE ELECTRIC AND GAS COMPANIES ARE GOING TO HASSLE
YOU, BY PHONE OR BY REPEATED LETTERS TO ‘UPGRADE’ YOUR METER (OR
SUCHLIKE – I have evidence of this already) BUT KNOW YOUR RIGHTS IN
ADVANCE (SEE ABOVE), AND DO NOT LET THEM INTO YOUR HOUSE. WATCH MY
VIDEO NOW! >>>>>>> https://youtu.be/VK7xWIJGwBM <<<<<<<<

and also I recommend videos by minivanjack on YouTube. – a good place to start
is https://youtu.be/9WeDtQ7sXHU

He explains whenever they (Utility company) threatens you, or visit
your property to try to fit a ‘Smart’ meter you simply show them or
send them (in the post, recorded mail) a copy of the letter you carefully
worded and had sent recorded mail originally to the Utility… THIS IS
WHAT WE NEED – SIMPLICITY – A SIMPLE ACTION PLAN; OUTLINED
ABOVE.

> SEND RECORDED LETTERS IN ADVANCE. DO A DRAFT LETTER TODAY. REWORD IT LATER AFTER YOU VIEWED VIDEOS/LINKS.

> YOU HAVE A VOICE – AT LEAST FOR NOW, AS LONG AS YOU DON’T LISTEN TO
LIES FROM THE UTILITY ‘CUSTOMER SERVICE’ WHO HAVE NOW PROVED THEY
CAN BE AGGRESSIVE TO CUSTOMERS BY PHONE. SEND ALL YOUR UTILITIES A
CAREFULLY WORDED LETTER SENT BY RECORDED POST, AND KEEP SEVERAL
COPIES, AND A DIARY OF EVENTS, OR FOLDER FOR FUTURE…

This is your plan of action. Hope this helps everyone! Remember
YOU have rights IN YOUR OWN PROPERTY not to have a surveillance device fitted
against your will, or one which might give you cancer long term, or ringing in the
ears (tinnitus), depression, headaches, sleep disorders, damaged DNA Proteins in
your body (and brain), mental confusion, loss of vitality for life!

 

UPDATE ON THAMES WATER 1ST MAY 2016

My letter from Thames Water signed by Freena De Braganca – Customer Services Agent – smart metering team 0800 316 0989 – sadly she does not give her direct line otherwise I would add this to my comments.  The letter is 5 pages long and here is what I think of it:

RUBBISH!

In the first paragraph I am told the smart meter fitted despite my objection will NOT be removed.

Under the heading Why Smart Metering?

Their excuse is lack of water and they WRONGLY state that they have legal powers to fit them.  They have commenced doing this from Borough to Borough.  They say it is done for the reason to encourage consumers to use water wisely – well hardly any water is used at my home and I offered to have fitted a meter that I could read myself and submit readings but this was not good enough for Thames Water.  Thames water say they can find and fix leaks more efficiently but like I say we do not use much water and I prefer to buy bottled water in shops than their water.  So they use these smart meters to collect data.  They also threaten that if you deny access they will fine you £597.04 and I find this absolutely disgusting and would accuse them of being bullies.   I have already said that I would rather pay for a meter to be fitted other than a smart meter but still they would receive the readings which I would do myself.  This was not good enough for Thames Water.   “If at a later stage you decide you would like a meter fitted the no access charge would be removed following the installation of the meter”   –  so this is a threat Thames Water. They try to compare their smart water meters with wifi but we do not have wifi on in the house that often due to Elizabeth’s health. These meters operate in one of two ways:  “In automatic meter reading mode where a meter reading walks by or drives by the meter to collect a meter reading.  In fixed network or smart meter mode the meter reading is sent by radio every hour.  None of this has impressed me.

They compare the level of radio frequency to about the same as a TV remote control and less than home wifi and significantly less than a mobile phone but again I am not impressed.   We shall be measuring the quality of your water once such a meter is fixed against our wishes.   Thames Water “believe” them to be safe –  I would compare this wording with a consultant psychiatrist who “believes” the drugs to be safe and “believes” in the labelling of disorders dished out – sometimes several at one time.

They state wifi does not affect the water quality – no evidence so they say.  I am not convinced in anything they say especially when they use the word “believe”.

Meters plus you in control of your bills –  well actually I see this the opposite way that it puts Thames Water in control.  I personally would rather pay more than less for water of the right quality.

“when we have activate your meter we will let you know.  We will send a letter to inform you and series of comparison bills.   Now more threats ……………”Thames Water has the powers to complulsory meter its customers.”    BUT THIS  IS NOT TRUE!

If you have any further queries please callout Smart Metering Team on 0800 316 0989 –     have you tried ringing ?  I cannot stop laughing as it took me what seemed like an hour to get through and this is despite their hours being from 8.00 am – 8pm Mon – Fri and 8.00am – 1 pm.

Yes my query is when are you coming to take it away?   When are you going to fit the meter I requested that I am prepared to pay extra for.   Perhaps your manager can answer this question on Twitter please.

Elizabeth has now got her phone thank goodness.  It is no longer in the office and I think that is great as it can take time to get through and also when staff are busy to be fair it is not easy on them.  I just hope she has her charger too in order that people can get through to her.

Being on a ward such as this is not an easy experience to be cut off from the outside world and be away from home and family.  I know that some sent to this hospital are from a long distance away from home and that brings back memories of when Elizabeth was sent to Cambian in Wales.

Anyway, Elizabeth telephoned this morning and she enjoyed so much her short visit  (escorted by a member of staff) to the garden centre next door.  She wanted to go again but sadly although she was all dress and ready to go out no one was available to accompany us as they were short staffed.   I said “that is not good”.   I think it is very important that patients are taken out and taken to the gym to exercise.

I am not sure if Elizabeth has been to the gym yet although this was promised. Anyway neither of us made a fuss about not being allowed out anywhere I was disappointed though for Elizabeth.

Wednesday will be the first time I will meet the “Responsible Clinician” who has been away on holiday all this time and has just come back.    I have asked Elizabeth if one of her carers can come along and also my advocate.   I am waiting to hear if he can attend this important meeting.

I have been very busy today looking at what can be provided for Elizabeth in addition to what she already had at home.  I know that the team will want assurances that the Abilify is given but I have found a solution and am prepared to provide proof of this as this will avoid any extra expenses involved in setting up a costly CTO for instance.   Elizabeth and I are much happier with the chemical Abilify so there is nothing for the Consultant Psychiatrist to worry about.    If there were any complications on this drug I now have a very good new GP I can turn to and have signed up to some private care myself.

I wish to discuss with this team at the ward round meeting about the other diagnoses that Elizabeth has.  Everything needs to be thoroughly looked at and this can be done as an outpatient and will be less costly that the huge amount of money being spent by my local area Enfield as I am prepared to pay for the assessments myself.   It has also come to my notice that Elizabeth has been quite happy on the ward up until now and has made some friends however Elizabeth made it clear to me today that she is missing her cat and is worried about the family and misses everyone.  We all miss Elizabeth and I have a holiday lined up.  The holiday will be very therapeutic on organic farms with animals near the sea.  I cannot think of anything more healthy and beneficial.   I have found Elizabeth to be fine during my visit this weekend and although she was a bit anxious about going out on Saturday she soon relaxed as it was a lovely peaceful setting.  The next time the consultant psychiatrist promised me that I could take her out unescorted and there are two lovely pubs down the road where they do nice meals.   I hope this will be allowed on Wednesday.  I am going to phone early tomorrow as no alterations should be done in the dosage just before her assessment.    This is not right at all in my opinion.   I think I need to speak to the Responsible Clinician about this myself as others prescribing in his absence.

The Consultant Psychiatrist did say to me “I will keep the dosage to a minimal dosage”  Now it is doubled and I do not want to see it trebled.  I will keep you all informed as Dr Ann Blake Tracey said that any changes in medication can obviously affect someone and even I as a mother would know this.   Any changes in medication should not be done right bang before an assessment in my opinion and then you get told that the person concerned is not all that good.   Well this weekend Elizabeth has been great and she has really enjoyed her visit out to the garden centre.

Anyway I cannot fault the lovely nurses and staff and reception people but I have seen some shocking reviews and I hope that my good experience will continue with Cygnet Hospital Stevenage Orchid Ward.  I really hope that a fair solution can be achieved rather than keep Elizabeth on a locked ward where she has no possessions with her for years and years on end at enormous expense to ENFIELD.    This is suitable for short term only in my opinion.

Anyway I will keep you all informed as to how Wednesday’s Ward Round goes.
