reducing energy bills they will rise. Add the difficulty of changing supplier and technical problems and people will be glad that installing a not-so-smart meter is not compulsory.
The estimated cost to the consumer will be nearer £20 billion than £11bn.
This whole expensive exercise is a cover-up because the Government knows, but blatantly denies, that there will be an electricity shortage as coal, gas and nuclear power stations are to close and be replaced by more wind turbines that produce part-time electricity and solar that contributes little of any consequence.
These closures are to cut the UK’s CO2 emissions as dictated by the Climate Change Act 2008 despite the UK only having 1.3 per cent of global emissions.
Time to kill off the Climate Change Act 2008 and spend the money on the NHS, education and reducing energy bills.
Clark Cross Linlithgow THE Bible John picture keeps appearing in The Herald and now The Herald on Sunday (In Cold Blood, November 18), and is always wrongly described as a “photofit”.
The image was created by my late father GW Lennox Paterson, using a fairly pioneering technique, and was essentially a colour portrait in gouache to be used in identification and for posters. He worked with CID officers and various witnesses (of many professions) from in and around the Barrowland Ballroom, to work up a likeness that has unfortunately never been able to be tested. I clearly remember he relished the experience.
Please refer to it in future as “an artist’s impression”.
